How do the 232's do with EDM and other forms of electronic music?

The 232s are great for those genres because of the v-shaped signature :p

Do these absolutely need an amp? I'd like to run them out of my android phone and nothing else. Its an LG G2 if it matters.

No. I use them with iPhone5 and the sound is good enough to me. I have plug it into different amps, some of them really expensive, like +£1000. For some amps, there were indeed improvement, but not very big one. For some amps, it sounded weird, not impressive at all. So I guess I will stick with my iPhone5. I don't have a LG G2. Can't help you with that.

PS. Personally, I think pfe232 sounds more nature without any filter on.

These do not require an amp and phones should be more than enough to power the PFE232...  That said, power is not an issue.  I'm not sure how good the internal DAC/AMP is in the G2 though.

Thats good news. I just can't bring myself to carry a portable amp or dac along with my cell. Its just too much.

I've tried the PFE232 with both Samsung Note 2 and iPhone 4S straight off the phones without amping. I prefer the iPhone 4S sound

Anyone recommend an alternative to the phonak silicone tips? The mediums aren't big enough and the larges slowly slide out of my ears. Driving me crazy. No foam.
