    Sub $150 IEMs for regular listening

    Hello, I am looking for an adequate pair of IEMs for myself. I currently own mostly bluetooth stuff like Senn HD4.40 or Technics EAH-AZ70W.

    Upgrading IEMs from Moondrop Aria

    Per the title, I'm looking at potentially upgrading my IEMs soon. I love the Arias. They've been great. But I just ordered a FiiO M11 Plus DAP and was thinking it might be a good time to get better IEMs, too. In researching, the most recommended upgrades from the Arias seem to be the Moondrop...

    Are expensive IEMs worth it with a cheap DAC?
