So the one you bought that was just a DAC ($60), is that worth it? Like just the DAC since I've noticed the DAC and Amp combo is quite out of my budget at the time. So will I be able to notice a huge difference from just the DAC?
Anyone?
So I am going to purchase the Grado SR80e mainly because it fits my genres of rock and classical.  Now from my understanding, a DAC converts binary into analogue and that all computers with headphone jacks and mp3 players have DAC's that aren't good. And if I'm correct, an amplifier helps produce more sound from the DAC (I'm unsure on this even though I looked through numerous explanations). And all DAC has it's own line of power and without an Amp, it won't produce...

Delete this please, I can't delete it for some reason. (Posted in wrong section and realized right after) 
Maybe you guys called it trash due to the genre you guys listen to maybe? I use mine mainly for hip hop/rap/pop/ and Soul. It works perfectly fine for it's price except for Soul where the voices wouldn't be called crystal clear. I wouldn't recommend keeping it if you listen to orchestral music. Like any music with acoustic instruments (excluding guitars for some reason) will sound a bit different and off, especially the high pitches (like on the violin). 
Yeah, I'm not looking for IEM's. I'm looking for some OEM's. 
I'd recommend at least 4-5 days of burn-in (96-120 hours). I used white noise for the entire process.   Before burn-in it sounded cold, after the burn-in it improved and felt a bit warmer (suck at describing sound).   And ever since I burnt them in, the sound quality improved drastically 2 MONTHS AFTER the burn-in. It's probably because I didn't burn them in enough. I only listen to music an hour or two a day. So you can try to burn them in for a week, it should work. If...
Sufficient03, I actually think it's just that the headphones either are a counterfeit or are defective. I can't say it any other way. the S4 are one of the heaviest bass IEM (in-ear monitors just incase you didn't know) that you can get for under a $100.   I'll tell you my experience with them at first, it was cold and too stiff. It's hard to explain, but the bass was there, but it was stiff and solid (too solid). After burning it in for around 120 hours with white...
Well, since I won't be taking this out of the house often, it will most likely be connected to my PC. I might plug it into my iPad or iPod touch every now and then.   Also, can you recommend a headphone with isolation? For some reason, I can't get the feeling of being separated from society with isolation headphones.    And the headphones you recommended, are they good on high pitches on the violin?
