Atlas with the corrected eartip and cable for confort it the best iem that I heard.
Mostly Apple Music via iPhone X. I used to use Tidal but when A/B’ing, I struggle to hear a discernible difference.
On another note, I’ve been doing some tip rolling and I really like the Dream with the Sony hybrid tips. Too bad I can’t seem to find a place to buy more.
The mojo isn’t quite it’s best off the iPhone unfortunately. It is actually very sensitive to transport use.
Hmmm I never knew that. I have an LG G6 as well. Perhaps I should pair it up with that.
What are the correct ear tips?
The Stax SR-003 and Shure KSE1500 are traditional estats... they need an external amplifier or energizer to generate enough voltage to power the estat drivers, making them less portable.
Following the release of the new electrostatic tweeter from Sonion, no external amplifier is needed, the voltage is generated by a miniature transformer unit, small enough to fit inside IEMs.
As of now, there are 5 products that have the EST (electrostatic tweeter):
1) Fitear EST (1BA + 1EST)
2) Alclair Electro (4BA + 2EST)
3) NF Audio JD24 (4BA + 2EST)
4) Jomo Audio Trinity (1DD + 4BA + 2EST)
5) Shozy POLA (1DD + 1EST)
I really liked the JVC spiral tips and shure orange foam. I was not happy until i have used those two. The shure does not have the "drive flex phenomenon

Small list for now based on my personal preference of course. Using either my HTC 10, or DFR.
1) CTM VS-4. . . . . . . 1) Audeze iSine20 w/reg cable
3) CTM VS-3
4) Radius TWF31
5) CTM VS-2
6) VE Biggies
7) VE Smalls
8) B&O 3i
9) VE monk+ (fitment is main downfall for me)
10) Bose sound true
Reason I placed the vs4 and iSine in the same place is because they have different things I like about them. Can't say one is specially better than the other at the point.
... I had some jbl but cant remember tthe models.

KSE1500’s detail and realism is unmatched for me.
Demoed the KSE1500 at the Shure Booth at CanJam LA earlier this year. I was literally floored on how effortless the sound that I'm hearing with the Shures. Best of all, the sound isn't too aggressive nor laid back, exposing its sheer resolution and detail.
Based on what I demoed at CanJam, my ranking would be similar to yours as well except for the XIV and Atlas (haven't heard this IEM yet). My preference is neutral with slight bass boost.
