All over the place.
This is kind of like leaving a time capsule - come back in a few years time, and see how much has changed. :D
My time capsule:
1 - Sony XBA N3 currently owned and favourite.
2 - Sony XBA A1 currently owned, and enjoyed.
3 - Any other Sony XBA a or n series, :wink: heard most of them and love the sound signature.
4 - JVC woodies, specifically FX750 and 850. Still don't own a set.. :frowning2: But they sound terrific.
5 - My Fischer Audio Dubliz Enhanced. Bassy, dark, thumping, detachable cable, nice build, good stuff.
6 - Vsonic GR02BE. Timeless classics of the V persuasion. Loved them to death, unfortunately literally. Not going to invest in a 4th set, sadly.
7 - Klipsch S4i, a gateway for many, and 7 years later mine still workout every day at the gym. Extraordinary toughness.

1. SE5U - balls to the wall bass with great transparency
2. HUM pristine - clear as day with good balance with bass and mids
3. Fitear 335dw/334 - prominent vocals and sweet treble make this a fantastic niche vocal IEM
4. Adel u12/a12 - the airiness in this IEM is second to none, best soundstage by far offered by the adel modules
5. Fitear fitear - surprisingly the best cost-price ratio of the fitear brand -- extremely well balanced with the characteristic good vocals as you can expect from Fitear

+1
 
Hahaha. I haven't been on this site very long but things have escalated rather quickly! I just knew I was gonna stay in the MidFi bracket but one thing led to another and before I knew it, I had bought, sold, and traded my way up the ladder! The rabbit hole is much deeper than I thought!

 I should add that my end-game is 1 TOTL balanced armature set, 1 TOTL hybrid set, and 1 TOTL dynamic driver set. Everything else will be a fond memory. I'm projecting the following:
 
Noble Kaiser Encore or Katana
Fidue Sirius A91
Campfire Vega
 
I'm still very interested in the Zeus XR ADEL, FLC Celeste, and Dita Dream but I should be good for a long while.

Are you saying the Kaiser Encore is greater than or equal to the iSine 20, or simply greater than?

Dunu DN 1000 > Sennheiser IE80 > Sennheiser CX300 MKII > Bose In Ear headphones > Apple earpods > Klipsch S3
 
I'll rank the VSonic GR07 BE in b/w Dunus and IE80s, IE80's too veiled mid and GR07 lack of bass, that makes DN1000 perfect & Only IEMs that I think to replace the DN-1K are the FLC8S..

The FLC 8S is excellent if you haven't already heard it.
