Depending on the type of earphones you want, neutral sound? U shape V shape sound? for neutral sound.
My friend uses the audio technica im02, it is a double BA in ear monitor, they cost about 200bucks average but if since it's the festive season you probably can get it around the price range you want.
Shure 215 if you wanna have an advantage of sound isolation, they cost about 100 average. They are slightly bassy/neutral depending on which version you get. the normal black ones or the special edition blues.
If you're fresh and in for some hype maybe choose some iem such as Vsonic gr07, dunu entry series. They are good, but they wouldn't have the durability you are asking for, but, they might just level out the playing field for the sound you want.
It really depends which kind of sound you prefer, you might prefer a dual driver earphone, while others prefer a quad driver earphone, each earphone has it's unique personality and you would think otherwise on choosing a "best earphone" You might also wanna test it out at your local earphone stores and give them a good audition.

"Mid tier" IEM recommendations?
I'm thinking of making a modest investment in a solid pair of IEMs. I have long been hoping there'd be another drop of the IMR R2 Red, but that seems highly unlikely. So, now my attention is on the JVC HA-FDX1 DUAL CARBON. What else in the $150 to $250 range is worth my attention? Not sure what to share so y'all can provide targeted recommendations. I have the HD6XX and KZ ZS10 Pro. I use the Radsone Earstudio with the KZ, and probably would with whatever I get next. I'm very happy with the sound of the HD6XX but would welcome a little more on the bottom (I don't consider myself a bass head). Sources tend to be high resolution. Classic rock and progressive predominates, with a lot of live recordings. Fiio FA7 or FH5? IKKO OH10? Aiderlot M5? Simgot EN700 Pro? IMR Knight (about $260 from their site)? I see a lot of ChiFi options on Amazon, which I don't dismiss out of hand, but there are a lot to sort through. Besides a great sounding product, of course, I like "bang for the...

New To Audiophile
I am looking to get into some audiophile with some headphones, I have been looking at the Drop x Sennheiser HD 58X and the HD 6XX, now I don’t know if I will be able too afford a Dac/Amp to go with them right off the bat, therefore probably not taking full advantage of their sound. But as a new person dipping my toes into this realm is that a good start and how would they sound just plugged into my PC which has a Z370 Asus Prime motherboard that they will plug into. Any and all recommendations and help is appreciated

Drop Panda only charges up to 90 per cent, not 100.
I got my Drop Panda last week. Whenever I try to charge it to full, it doesn't make 100 all the times. Once I left it while charging cables plugged, after a few hours or even half of a day, it only charges 90per cent. The weirdest thing is that sometimes it only charges 80. Does anyone have the same problem?

Shanling UA2 basically covers all the things a USB dac should do. SE and Bal outputs, 200 mW/32 ohms, pretty good sound and app support. Is there any dac under $100 that has more output power than this? Anyone tried the E1Da 9038s?

Panda Question
Hey all, I just grabbed a pair of the Drop + THX Pandas and so far I am really enjoying them. These are my first planets however, and I’ve noticed that when I press on the ear cups, or move rapidly, there is a “crinkle” or a “pop” that occurs even when the headphones are off. (almost sounds a bit like poster board if that helps) I have read that this is due to pressure interacting with the diaphragm, and is normal for planars (presumably more normal on closed back planars) and it isn’t effecting my sound in a noticeable way. Is this normal? Just wanna make sure everything is all good on my end.

Dragonfly Cobalt is impressive
Im using with my android note 8 via Qobuz utilizing the USB Audio Player Pro. app. Mostly used line out directly to my amp. Fantastic sound. Very crisp detailed and clean and transparent with absolutely no edginess that is sometimes associated with crisp detailed dacs. Totally disagree with Zeos on this. The difference is substantial If used with qobuz via Audio player pro. If you're looking for great sound and not interested with all the additional bullshit bells and whistles this is an extraordinary item. Not suprising that stereophile mag selected this as budget product of the year

Drop + HIFIMAN HE5XX Review
You can read the full review here at Headfonics! Drop bats another home run with the HE5XX, we all knew this already though. I am a bit late to the game on this one. My main concern is the lacking included balanced cable. As I say it is not a problem that it is not included, I (The audiophile reviewer) do not have a 3.5mm dual entry balanced cable to test with. HAHA! But that is my fault. I am told it improves more in balanced mode but cannot confirm based on anything but prior experience with Planars where that sentiment is in fact true as can be. The HE5XX is a steal at $220. No, it does not feel like the older original HE500, but it feels like a natural sibling to the newer models from Hifiman and if you like them, you will like this one too. I'd rate it 4/5 stars and not only would recommend it to friends but family too. Drop does great with these re-releases. This is a generalist, a great all-around usage headphone. From music to YouTube, to light gaming needs, to a...
