    I never really liked the comfort of the Apple AirPods Max, so I am thinking of buying the B&O H95 instead. However, some people on an other forum said that the H95 sounds barely any better than the Sony WH-1000X4. If this true, then I might instead replace the Apple AirPods Max with the Sony...

    Bluetooth sound quality

    My iPhone X and iPad Pro 12.9 sound the same with Wireless headphones. But my older iPhone 6S plus sound significantly worse. How is this possible? :p Is it maybe due to bad isolation of the electronics which bleeds into the signal perhaps?

    iPhone 5S case + non-Apple IEM

    The holes of the standard Apple leather cases are too small for my Shure SE535. So I can only use my Shure SE535 naked with the iPhone 5S.   Has anyone found a solution with their IEM + iPhone 5S + case?

    Since the Shure SRH 1840 are easy to drive, would an Apogee One be sufficient?    If not, would the Apogee Duet be sufficient then? (since people also use the Apogee Duet to drive the much harder HD 650)   Does the Fiio E7 drive a Shure SRH 1840 good also?

    I have the B&W P5, but I'm thinking about switching to earbuds as it draws too much attention at work. I bought the Shure SE215 and I'm impressed with these earbuds. Obviously they are horrible in comparison to my B&W P5 which is expected due to the price difference.   How do the Shure SE535...
