The best ways to use these with an iPhone or any other iOS device is to purchase the Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter for $9. It is very well regarded for it's sound reproduction and price. The adapter should also be more than adequate for powering these ER2SE.
Sound is incredibly subjective, so theses may be better than AirPod Pros for some and worse for others. Things like hearing damage, file quality, fit and environment are different for everyone which makes sound quality difficult to judge objectively. The best way to see if you like these is to purchase them. If you are used to a bass heavy sound signature the ER2SE may sound poor because of its flat sound profile. If you like more BOOM, look out for the ER2XR which have more BASS.

I have an ER2XR paired to a DragonFly Red. Source is either the iPhone X or MacBook Pro. To be honest, to my ears, there is very minimal difference with the Dragonfly Red (even with lossless audio). However, between the MacBook Pro and the iPhone X, the iPhone X seems to provide better fidelity. As the previous poster mentioned, its very subjective. Some listeners would be able to discern the difference, or it may just be a placebo effect. Best to try it out yourself and gauge how the sound "feels".
