It does seem well optimised. I know that I can have 80% battery left at 10pm, switch to airplane mode and still have 80% left at 8am.

I can't do that with Android; the Moto G is quite good but...

Pretty much...the battery will last a full 2 days, but I'm not using cellular on it very often, so that's disabled unless I need it. I'm generally using my Moto G for making and receiving calls, but...

I'm actually really happy with the battery on my iPhone 5 - perhaps because the device has barely been used. I got it second-hand in May, found out that it had been manufactured and activated last...

I think that in the Summer, when it's too hot to wear a jacket, the smaller the phone the better. Obviously you could just carry a small mp3 player and that would be more comfortable still.

But I...

I guess that one of my annoyances is the lack of decent, high-quality smartphones with smaller screens.

I had the Xperia Z at 5" which was just too big and wasn't a decent phone, anyway. The Moto...

Fair enough.

I think because data is so cheap here, I don't feel like I'm paying when I'm using a streaming service, and there's no real advantage in storing music locally. Even if I could find an...

I solved that problem with my iPhone by not even using a computer; if a phone has to be connected to a computer, then I'm not interested, wouldn't buy it.

I can recommend the Momentum-On-Ears; however, they definitely have a bass emphasis, not to the detriment of other frequencies like Beats or Skullcandy, but you may want to try them before buying.

No, the basic model is the single armature XBA-C10 which is an updated version of the XBA-1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVjYDmGFG7E

I wouldn't call the XBA-H1 bass-oriented; it certainly has...

Fair points made.

I'm at the stage now where any new player fails to excite me. I don't even keep any music files on my Chromebook, because streaming services work so well for me.

Both my XBA-2 and XBA-H1 mentioned above have flat cables.. Other than being slightly less tangle prone, there is no real advantage. I thought that most iems nowadays have flat cables.

I owned the ie8s...analytical is not what I'd call them. Moved them on quickly. Same with the Klipsch x10i.

The Sennheiser ie8s weren't that good, either, with the mid-bass hump. Like the Klipsch x10/i massively over-priced.

And rather old by now, like your Zune.

As for smartphones, I listen to an...

No, mine is plenty loud. I disable the on-board EQ settings as they're not that good, but I have good volume.
