Some USB 3 ports on newer Macs don't like the Gen 3 USB it seems.  Try through a USB 2 hub.
I'd be surprised if it wasn't.
The benefits of a well-made USB cable are going to be in noise isolation, since we know now that the differences, if any, are likely to be the result primarily of reducing the amount of noise entering the components, which can interfere with the resulting output. Probably nothing to do with the digital aspect of it at all. 
Yup, the polarity is reversed between each brand on the left ear piece. See here: http://www.head-fi.org/a/diy-cable-info-and-resources
 Short answer: No. Digital source only. If you're already in the analog domain, you don't need a DAC.
 Cheers. I hadn't thought of JVC tips specifically (I have Spinfit, Comply and Monster tips here) but I'll see if I can't easily get a pair.  It's all good, the suggestion was welcome. If all they require is a different pair of tips that will solve a lot. 
Is the pinout Westone or UE?
After another day of use, the bass has loosened up some more and now I feel that they are a bit warmer-sounding, with the bass intruding a bit and the mids a bit distant. However, I feel the treble has gotten worse, not better. Trying different genres I put on some Elbow and the sibilance in The Seldom Seen Kid was rather grating. Similar stories with other albums, even those that don't have mastering issues. That is going to make them a better pairing with acoustical...
 Forgive me if it was mentioned before, but what is the output impedance of the M1? I was noticing that some of my IEMs had a more impact sound out of the Mojo so this might explain what is going on.
Fixed.
