Well the UK has now entered a sort of lockdown, no large gatherings, bars, clubs , cinemas , events etc. Also refrain from social visiting I.e stay in your own home unless essential travel is needed , work or food etc...none of this is enforced at the moment .
Fingers crossed for all.

You mean like my normal day?

It's about 8.30pm here and I am currently out walking my dog, it's a busy neighbourhood always someone about , but it's like early hours of the morning , hardly anyone or even a car ....scary times.

You know it's getting bad when the crime rate plummets.

The ER2XR are not that easy to drive, and require some power to shine. They sound very dynamic through my desktop rig and ES100, but don't have the same energy straight from my LG V40 (low impedance mode).

For tips, some alternate ones that work well for me are Comply clone T100 size foams (a size smaller than what I use on other IEMs), or especially Future Sonics EarFill tips. The stock foam tips seal well for me, but they always seem to be "settling" in my ear canal and make a consistent crinkling noise.

I agree!
So far, I've driven my ER2XR with - LG V30, iFi Micro iDSD, iBasso PB2 (various op-amps, with / without buffers), Walnut F1, Loxjie P20 Tube Hybrid (with OPA1622 op-amps).
They actually seem harder to drive than my full size over the ears headphones - Beyerdynamic DT-831 (250Ω, 96dB/mW).

Its getting crazy, I have just found out they are cutting back public transport in my area which I rely on for work ...if it stops completely then I'm in trouble, no work then no money for Bill's or food...not good times and obviously there are thousands in similar predicaments .
