I have weaned myself a long time ago from headfi when I got my lovely Pico DAC/AMP and my Audio-Technica Esw10jpn and my Fischer Audio FA-002W 200-Ohm Edition Headphones.   However, my Pico DAC/amp got lost last month. I need a new AMP/DAC for my laptop. I loved the colorization my old Pico/DAC; it really did was a tube-like experience as people say. I may buy another one merely for that coloring again.     What are the current popular models at the moment as...
Well, I mainly wanted some IEMs for isolation in the subway. I just wanted to them to also to have a small footprint that can be practical for sleep too.
You best bet is too wait for another Black Friday sale and get them for $99. xD
It will be really hard to upgrade from such a perfect headphone like the ESW9.   All I can say is that you can side-grade by buying headphones more suitable for other genres of music. You can try open-cans rather than your closed-cans; should give a different sense of soundstage. Maybe try out a planar technology headphone; something affordable from the Hifiman line. Or heck, just get the Fostex t50rp, people resell those as thunderpants for hundreds of dollars after...
By universals you mean to find something like the triple-fi but one that is better fitting?
I would suggest the Triple-Fi 10s for a fun sound signature for Trance in terms of armature drivers. Has great bass, but remember these are not dynamic drivers; you will hear great bass, but not feel it. However, you will have the advantage of not bothering the people around you, since there is no bass port.     For dynamic driver IEMs, I have no idea. However, if feeling the base is important, then this is a must. However, dynamic IEMs will bother people around you...
My triple-fi 10s have great instrument separation.   However, they sound great for music that follows works well with it's V fun sound signature; OP's rock bands would be perfect.
Yeah, 16-impedence in-ear phones should be run easily by the Note-3.
Just know that tube amps will give a darker sound. And will give a better bass response.     Tube amps would be perfect as you solution.   If you are determined for a solid state amp. The Pico DAC/AMP is known for having a warm influence to its sound: http://www.headamp.com/pico/pico_dac_amp/index.htm Specifically the original Pico DAC/Amp model, the newer slim model wouldn't fit your request.
Was looking towards a UM or Rooth cIEM. I currently use my Ultimate Ears Triple-Fi 10s for side-sleep. I actually don't listen to music. I listen to ASMR videos on youtube to wind-down before sleep. youtube search of ASMR videos:  http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=ASMRrecommendation for ASMR videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/GentleWhispering/videos] Quote: I actually use these IEMs with the FLIP MOD.
