Default Super fi 5's just died :(

After owning them for about 6 months the right ear channel has gone. I was really surprised, I had heard about how fragile they are but I took the utmost care to pull them out of the ear via the unit and not wire and I inserted the jack into the player carefully and not pushing on the wire.
I really think the gentle act of lightly wrapping them around the finger and placing into a pouch etc is enough to do them harm (and of course just WEARING them and using them in general).
Such a shame they sound so good to my ears.
I think im getting a replacement pair but am thinking about picking up a pair of V-Moda Vibes as well as a backup.

After listening to Super fi 5's and going to v-moda will I be dissapointed in SQ? (I mean after the burn in time for V-Moda's).
