The tiny QM03 by QCY with the unique tips really cought my eye. Unfortunately, the build quality is pretty low, and I realized that in order for them to sound good and loud, you'll have to use a headphone amplifier. They just require more power for the overall volume and especially the mids and highs.

Comfort & Fit
You'll most likely need to use the large tips, since the housings are so small. When you get a good fit, they stay inside and you forget they are even there. They are extremely light!
Lows / Bass
Even on low-power sources, the bass is wonderful, just a bit silent. But on amplified sources, the bass shines. It's deep and punchy.
Mids / Vocals
When you're with a low-power device, the mids are aweful. But if you're on an amplified source, the mids sound pretty good and detailed, with a great channel separation.
Highs / Treble
On low-power sources, the highs almost don't exist. On amplified sources, the highs are gentle and moderate, not very detailed though.
