Are these too much IEM for Spotify and an iPhone?

Sound great with Spotify out of my Pixel XL, yes Tidal is better, but coming from a long time audiophile its really not a huge deal. Also, the genuine apple dongle DAC (lightning or usbc to 3.5) greatly outperforms even the dragonfly DACs in terms of low distortion. In fact the apple dongle comes in lower than most TOTL dacs out there in terms of distortion levels, the only downfall is that it doesn't have much power, which luckily this IEM will be fine. So basically it will sound freaking awesome, don't let audio elitests try to tell you otherwise.

I have the Shinola Canfield (by Campfire Audio).

It started as a bluetooth IEM, and sounded ok, but when I put a good cable on them they literally exploded with sound (especially balanced, driven with the Jotunheim). Campfire deserves its reputation as a purveyor of high end IEMs. This one seems to be comparable to the 'Honeydew' in price and performance. I think they've been discontinued, but it was a steal at $200. Finally, I was able to tell Schiit from Shinola.

I don't believe in the notion that if you only use Spotify on your phone you should not get a good set of IEM. iPhone dongle dac is enough to power this receiver. The deciding factor here should be what you are looking for. If you want to have one high end IEM for all use cases, I can honestly recommend that this is good choice.

I was considering some of their midtier ones. I think I like more of a bass signature but listen to lots of genres

I grew up in Portland, and have been to campfire audio HQ a few times to test stuff out. I have personally owned the Solaris, and I still am in possession of the Comet. I would buy these IEM's over any of Campfires lineup in terms of price to performance, and I prefer signature to anything Campfire offers. Solaris blew my mind, but honestly it wasnt that much better than this. Andromeda sounded dry to me, so I wasn't a fan. With that the only reason I would buy campfire over this is that you are supporting an awesome US company with awesome customer service and good products.
