    Headphone Inventory:
    Audeze LCD 3F 282XXXX 2016
    Audeze LCD 2F 2016
    Audeze Sine with Cipher and standard cable - Cipher is twinkly and has bumped up bass
    Sony WH-1000XM2 - highly competent sound & balanced signature despite noise cancelling circuitry and Bluetooth, best wireless SQ for iDevice users

    Oppo PM-3 - utter and complete loss to the Audeze Sine

    Final E5000 - my favourite IEMs of all time, balanced, organic and with a coherency and ease of presentation I have not yet found in any other IEM, even in TOTL universals that I've heard

    JH Audio Astell & Kern Billie Jean - Impulse audition & purchase, seemed great at first, punchy and dynamic but well beaten by the E5000 later
    Audio Technica E70 - with solid bass and more refinement than my FLC8S
    FLC Technology FLC8S - blue nozzle, grey bass filter and red sub bass filter, sounds like an LCD 2.2, absolutely gorgeous, previously top of my IEM pile
    Vsonic VC1000 - Absolutely fantastic balanced and neutral sound...RIP,..fixed with super glue!
