IEM / DAC AMP combo

Hi Ive been doing some research. I'm looking for the best wired IEMs under $100 that will sound better than my $20 Bluetooth headphones. Came up with this list:
-1more triple (These guys going out of business?)
-1more quad (if I find a deal)
-Tin T2 (Light on Bass)
-Fiio f5
-Fiio f9 (Not widely sold)

Any suggestion about these or outside of these? I heard that value starts to drop off after $100. I'm interested in something durable and sounds good for EDM. I won't consider over-ear for various reasons.

I'm also interested in a DAC/AMP for my desk. I want to spend under $100 but will consider more if it represents a better value. I know I don't really need one for IEMs but I like the extra power and sound customization. Was also considering the monolith thx portable at $280 but only if it's mindblowing. I heard that unit might have issues. Anyone know what the issues are? If there's a amazing value alternative for under $300, let me know. Thanks.
