Reread it, he says IF they come as a CIEM, IF.....he would be all over it.
I consider that the iPhone is an exceptional source.Apple would probably be elated to know that the Khan does not fit within the Apple biosphere, as that is pretty much the ethos of Apple.
That being said, the current work around is
Use a Noble lightning cable or use a DAC upgrade. We haven't tested all DACs on the market, but it is known the Dragonfly Red works.
As for a reviewer not commenting on the Khans performance while tethered to an I-phone
That would be like commenting on the performance of the latest Porsche shod with wagon wheels.
The Khan is a purpose built music monitor and reviewers may look upon the use of a phone to evaluate the performance of high end audio gear as more of a novice approach.
As for a CIEM Khan, the likelihood is slim, as the bass driver is pretty big.
The Khan sold out in Korea on the day of the launch.
