Whats up humans. During this 8 year quarantine I've found yet another expensive hobby to get into so here I am lolol.
Anyways, I'm a content creator and I do a lot of cinematic style automotive videography. Also on my spare time I do some pretty diverse gaming ranging from Forza Motorsport 7, to Dead By Daylight, to Rainbow Six Siege.
Currently I'm doing all of this via a pair of Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones. That being said, I'm really fascinated by the idea of IEM's and I'm looking to get an entry grade set that I can use to rotate between video editing and gaming for a bit. Any recommendations out there? I still have to get a DAC/AMP so I'm not really looking to break the bank with my first pair of IEM's but any recommendations will be considered!
Thanks in advance <3

I'm a pretty mid range audiophile as I dont have the money to spend on the higher end headphones and other equipment. Right now I'm using the HD58X's with a JDS Labs O DAC and JDS Labs Atom amp. I've been interested in electrostatic headphones ever since I've discovered the audiophile community (actually really got into it when I discovered the Sennheiser Orpheus) but they've always been way to expensive for me. Now that I know the KSP/95X exist, I really really want to get it, but the cost would be quite a dent for me personally. Would anyone here say that it's worth it to buy when I already have the HD58X? I mainly listen to classic rock and jazz. Any music that is really instrumental I'm into.
Music Hall mmf-2.3, Thorens TD203 or Fluance RT84?
So, here's my story in a nutshell. About seven years ago my wife (still girlfriend at the time) presented me with a Pro-Ject Essential Phono USB turntable. I had a modest collection of records at the time, mostly hip-hop and electronica coming out on independent labels, which I bought mainly to support the community, with a view of owning a turntable one day, and to listen to while visiting friends who actually had equipment to play them. For me personally, it was, and still is, the first turntable I owned. I hooked it up to some active desktop speakers, started expanding my collection with re-issues of Blue Note classics, and was pretty happy at the time. Then I started moving around: plain traveling the world first, settling in a new country, new city next. In a new city, with all the cares and worries of setting up a home, and my re-discovered passion for classical menswear I never quit got to the records, and both them and the turntable were just gathering dust in a...
