Well, it's like advising buying Porsche 911 Turbo S to someone who asks about getting Focus RS or Golf R :wink: very helpful indeed.

If you could compare FLC to the Plus it would be great. If not, I'll wait for someone who could do little comparision.
You're probably right, if you truly have the $300 budget but not 800.

For me Plus have 3 advantages over Andromeda: 1. Lower SPL so adjusting volume is easier; 2. Less hisses; 3. And most importantly, much much more comfortable than Andros.

But Andromeda is definitely the better IEMs, no doubt about it. However if I didn’t have Andros I would be very happy with Plus.
I personally find Campfire Audio IEMs, including the Andro housing ones, fit my ears very well even for hours of wearing and are not uncomfortable as they say. I was quite concerned when I made the purchase, and then I learnt that you never know until you try it.

Can anyone recommend a dap or dac/amp for MD Plus? I have a Mojo but prefer something more revealing and less warm.

I was thinking maybe Lotoo Paw 5000 mk 2 ?
iBasso Dx200 with AMP4 (4.4mm balanced) is awesome with Massdrop Plus Universal. I'm using it with PW Audio #5 cable.

I think you're spot on, the comfort level may be very different for different people, and you have to try to really know it.

For me I don't really feel Andros uncomfortable, though not as comfortable as Westone IEMs, but probably on the same level as most other multi-BA IEMs. However with the Plus they almost make me forget I have earphones on, that's how comfortable they are to me.

By the way the Andros also make me forget I have earphones on.. but for some other reasons, sonically I guess..
