    Best sounding True wireless IEM?

    with at least IPX4 rating? I’m looking for something for working out. I was thinking about getting iBasso’s CF01, but the IEM wouldn’t be water resistant. Has anyone listened to the AKG N400 and/or Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro? Any other recommendations? Btw, I love deep, clean bass. Thanks!

    Question about amps in general (sorry, might be dumb)

      Is it safer to unplug headphones before turning an amp on and off?  I thought I read somewhere about power surges during on-off that might damage headphones.  This might be just with certain amps, though. Thanks! btw, I have a Hifiman EF-5.

    Dynamic, Spacious, and Bass-Capable headphones for movie soundtracks?

    soundtracks like from Hanz Zimmer. Even though these have classical orchestral components, I think that they can only be properly reproduced by headphones that are VERY bass capable.  The well-known problem is how to get both spacious sound [an open backed quality] along with powerful...

    Anyone heard Atomic Floyd's IEMs? I think the HiDef Drum has a dynamic driver ~ 13mm and the Superdarts, i think, are hybrid dynamic + balanced armature. They look awesome.

      I consider myself to be pretty unsophisticated in terms of evaluating the sonic performance of headphones, so my evaluation of these will be general and probably too vague for discerning audiophiles. Anyways, I got these because they only cost $70 at Brookstone (I got it at the retail...
