I have been following the SE846 threads but makes no sense for my purposes, Those guys play in a different league - multiple iems at $1k and more.
My questions. Do the silicone eartips ever need replacing? And if so, what is a source?
No, silicon tips don't need replacing, not for many many years anyway. Simply wash them once every week under some cold water.
Keep in mind the tuning rings on DN-1000 are very small and can slide off easily, keep a close eye on them at all times.

It's actually the same T1 amp, however when plugged into direct line out from Stoner Acoustics UD110 v2 it behaves rather differently. It actually sounds really good in this configuration. :P We're not sure if it's because of the constant voltage from USB port or simply synergy related. Sounds like a different amp and we've been discussing why in a group msg.

To give you a rough idea ER4S probably have a similar bass quantity as DBA-02 (B2) with a correct seal.

The Klipsch x10 are incredibly lightweight (featherweight really) and isolates quite well. I use it on my intercontinental flights with excellent results. I expect the Dn1k to be much heavier and less comfortable but perhaps it may sound a lot better. ANd does it the DN1K isolate as well?
The sound will be a lot better than X10 which I have owned twice, but the weight will also be a lot more than those feather weights. The comfort is still very nice.
I wear them down personally. Isolation is nothing to rave about, remembering it's highly tip dependent subject more so than the housing design in my opinion.
