Dude, you're going to need an amp (and a DAC) to bring out the best in just about any headphones. Depending on your budget, the Dragonfly AMP/DACs portables are a good place to start, with three price points. I hear they sound very good. here's a link: https://smile.amazon.com/AudioQuest-Dragonfly-USB-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B07T3HSD9Z/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=dragonfly&qid=1592327501&sr=8-1 I started with the Schiit Audio Magni amp and Modi DAC for $99 each. They sound really good. here's a link to Schiit: https://www.schiit.com/products/magni-1 Also you can edit (correct) your post by hitting the three vertical dots to the right of the page ;-)

Drop + THX Panda -- Bluetooth Audio Clipping Whenever Resumed from a Pause of More than 2 Seconds
I don't have much experience with Bluetooth headphones and figured I'd ask here to help set my expectations a bit. I just bought some Drop + THX Panda headphones. They're well reviewed for sound quality and supporting higher-end audio codecs, some of which Macs support (eg: aptX) and some of which they don't (eg: LDAC). Anywho, upon unboxing them and pairing them to my 2020 iMac running Big Sur, I noticed that audio over bluetooth sounds totally fine until it's been paused for more than 2 seconds. When I unpause, it almost feels as if maybe the headphones are coming out of some standby or low-power mode and are rushing to start a new bit stream. The sound is clipped / distorted for a second or two until it "catches up". This is particularly annoying for things like notifications and other sound effects which, by nature, are essentially really short audio clips.

Edit: Would FiiO E10K work?
