The SD 4s and Prophile 8 are the same on comfort level. Which makes them great for extended listening sessions. Both are very neutral but handle pretty well. No doubt the 8 has additional extended details and some play with the switches. Would recommend both but they are ties to your budget

Very true.. I'm in dilemma between the two. Waiting for my pre-ordered SD 4 but after another listening session now I'm thinking of switching to PP8. Both are good and a beauty in its own respective signature.

Hi,

I listened once to the PP8 with my Calyx M and it was a great pairing. Neutral, but also very musical and black background without any hiss.
I can't speak for any other DAP.

I'm thinking of buying these, I've got a couple of questions:
1) When used from a "bad" source (laptop, smartphone, ...), how silent are the PP8? Is there audible hiss? The 32 Ohm makes me assume they are silent, or at least fairly quiet.

2) How hard is it to get a proper seal with these?

3) These are fairly large IEMs, that's obvious. Would you say they are comfortable compared to other universals? Can you kinda use them while lying down in bed, or is it extremely uncomfortable?
