True Wireless IEMs with EQ in App? (iOS)

With it being difficult to get system-wide EQ, or even manually adjustable EQ, on iOS, having an app for wireless IEMs that includes EQ is very helpful. I've tried Sennheiser, and their three-band EQ is a bit anaemic. Better is Sony with a five band EQ+Clear Bass, and their WF-C500 are pretty good for the price.

I've heard the JBL app can do PEQ, but have also read their IEMs have poor fit with oval shapped IEMs/tips.

Any other IEM/iOS app recommendations?

The Nothing Ear's app has a PEQ, saved on device, but I am not aware of its limitations. it doesn't look quite as capable as the better implementations (ex Qudelix).

The various JBL's built in EQ is quite capable but mostly if you have the means to measure the final result, as the values you enter won't necessarily correspond (ex the maximum slope seems to be limited). It is not a PEQ, it's a sort GEQ (and even if the app lets you choose the frequency, after you're done the curve you entered is fitted to what the GEQ is capable of doing).

Evidently you haven't explored the Sennheiser App well. With the Momentum 4 you have an E.Q. with many bands (classic non-parametric E.Q.).
