 Wish I had mula to waste on collectors items ;).
 IMO JVCS are better across the board. Bass goes deeper, has more control, treble has more air to it and maintains a smooth signature. Mids are more detailed, the FX850 has more clarity, timbre is quite a bit more natural sounding. The entire sound doesn't come across as muffled or cloudy as the IE80 can sound when directly compared. Then again the JVC themselves can sound muffled next to the 1Plus2 or Flat 4 Suis. There aren't any bad IEMs is also an opinion (although...
 Hmm you sure not a typo? lol...
  Um I highly doubt you'll be able to use the sleeves effectively on another IEM if it is custom built to specifically fit the IE80. What size tips do fit you the best? The spiral dot tips give me a very good seal with the best sound on the FX850s and the 1Plus2. Might be an option but they are pricey. At the price you are listing you could spend a bit more and get the FX850s (they come with the spiral dot tips) which is a clear upgrade over the IE80 or even go for CIEMs.
I wonder about that. @ $700 I would expect no hiss...
 I have to agree there. If the phone isn't very demanding then of course the benefit won't be huge. But then again depending on the synergy that itself can be huge.
The Suis tend to take a bit more juice. Average around 60 volume in normal settings. Quiet listening will go to 50 and below. Probably 35 or a little less while listening in bed. The SE5s don't take too much being CIEMs. Around 30s is good.
One of my favorite things about the X5 is how low the noise floor is on this unit. It really does contribute to the micro-detailing on the player. Yet it still has a smooth nature to it without being over the top. Really pairs well on the Ref 1 (I'm still on 1.0 firmware).
There's more to it than that though. I think people tend to oversimplify music in general. There are other characteristics inherent to different designs. Such as sound staging (depth, width), clarity, imaging, micro-detailing, quality of mids, bass and treble (control). Even on amp/daps where there is supposedly no coloration and the source if flat they still exhibit their own sound characteristics. Now whether or not it is better is totally subjective. I've long since...
 Sh*t... I hope not too. I am not a big fan of touch screen....
