Hey guys i i've been looking around for a while but i didn't join up until now. So im looking to buy some new iems, the last headphones i had were some S4s and i liked them, but they broke around a month after i bought them, so im looking to upgrade. Im looking for something alot more durable and an upgrade. I listen to most genres but mostly folkrock, rock, rap, electronic, and ambiant. The s4s broke at the wire, so i figure the detachable wire would be a good option, i saw that the SE315 and SE425 had detatchable wires and i figure something like that would mean i never have to buy new headphones . I am by no means an audiophile so please bear with me if my questions dont make sense.
So i have a few questions:
1.Is it worth it to go for the detachable wires, will i really never have to buy more headphones or do the added connections just cause more trouble
2. I will be using an iphone 4 and a macbook pro as my primary sources, is it really worth it using such highend headphones when the source is my iphone
3. The only reason i was looking at the SE series was because of the cables, im gladly open to other suggestions that would fit the music i listen to better
5. Would i need an amp, i didnt need one for my s4 but from looking around it seem as though alot of people like them, do they do anything other than make the volume louder, are they really a necesity
6. Lastly i live in Toronto Canada so if you know of any stores where i can get the headphones at a decent price that would be great
thanks alot for your help and sorry for rambling on
