The RE400 cable is it's weakest link.
Trust me, if you want durability look else where. In short, the RE400/600 is not built with durability in mind 
Make sure you don't miss out pairing the QB3 AKG with the Sony MH1 silicone tips. The stock tips didn't sound so good for me....YMMV.
I prefer the sound of the QB1SE to QB2SE but QB3 AKG version is so far the best for me....YMMV 
If you think QB3 is good, wait till you try the QB3 tuned by AKG 
The DX90 is sufficient to power the ER4S but I prefer the sound of my FiiO X3 (1st gen) paired to my Mojo (via coaxial) better. My comparison is based totally without EQ connected to my ER4B or ER4S. Straight headphone out from the DAP (without Mojo), I prefer the DX90 better than the X3 (1st gen).
I have no problem using my Mojo as my desktop rig...in fact it just replaced my Audio GD NFB11 desktop dac/amp.
I'm currently using my ER4B and ER4S paired with the Chord MOJO connected to my iBasso DX90/FiiO X3 (1st gen)/laptop/iPhone 4S and it sounds amazing. I prefer the sound from my current setup compared to my previous Centrance HiFi M8.
It all depends on what you mean by further upgrade....better musicality, more bass or more mids??? Etymotic's target is a flat sound signature for the ER4SR. The ER4XR has a little lift on the bass frequency although not to bass head level because that's not Etymotic's target sound signature. There's plenty of choices with many manufacturers eg. FitEar, Noble Audio, JH Audio, Ultimate Ears and many others producing multi BA custom and universal IEMs. There's also some...
I'd say the new Etymotic ER4SR or ER4XR will be a good step up.
