Also I have started to notice static when I plug iems into the computer is there a way to get rid of this? It does it with my sond mrd300xb but it isn't as loud as the others.
IEMs are sensitive, so they can pick up on static noise from the computer's sound card. Also to do with the relatively high output impedance on most sound cards. Some IEMs can be more sensitive than others, so that might also explain why your M6s pick up more noise than your Sonys.
1. Stop using your IEMs with your computer, and use them with your DAP just as IEMs are designed to.
2. Buy a cheap USB DAC/amp (like the E10s) to continue using them with your computer. Preferably one that has the finesse to drive more sensitive stuff. Not exactly recommended, as you're in essence buying a $60 DAC/amp just for your $20 IEMs.
