I converted all my older music from CDs to flac files a while back. I usually go to HDtracks for purchases, and I use TIDAL hifi (yearly). I dig the sound of MQA even though I don't fully understand how they do it (apparently, nobody else does either). I put all my tunes on an external ssd, and back it up on hdd. Streaming is a good way to go, some services will let you download, and there's software out there so you can capture tunes to your pc ;-)

Well I've heard mixed responses about MQA personally I refuse to support it since they attack people and go out of their way to remove evidence about their process (they banned a guy from producing music with mqa because he made a video about how it's not actually lossless like they claim) but if it sounds better that's great maybe another company will find another way in the future

Yeah, the company is not at all transparent. If it didn't sound better to me then I would not bother with it. Somehow, it sounds more... crisp, is the best way I can put it. Musicians are getting screwed all the way around lately, whether it be streaming services not paying enough (TIDAL is the leader in royalty percentage), or record co's not paying promised royalties, etc. If you don't own the rights to your music, you are in trouble.

Their management might be a bit flaky, but if they provide the better sound, I'm there. I've been using Tidal since 4/20 (lol) and the sound is better than others, to my ear. I'd love to find out how MQA works, but company secrets and all that crap. They do offer discounts for yearly subs, and I do expect to last another year at least, God willing. Nothing is guaranteed at my age, except achy joints and insomnia ;-)

Is there an IP rating for these? I'd be interested in using them for working out/biking. Concern comes from if there is rain during those activities.

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.
