Is their a noticeable difference when using them through a Macbook Pro's (or other laptop's) output and a headphone amp + DAC?

    Yes it will shows more details in music, increase soundstage and deep tight bass through USB DAC/AMPs. So overall it will take it to the next level with the help of DAC/AMPs help. BTW USB DAC/AMPs like iBasso D4 Mamba, Pico, iBasso D10 Cobra enhance the sound quality so much more than HP jack of Mackbook Pro. BTW Sennheiser IE8 and Monster Turbine Pro Miles Davis Edition are my favourite IEMs with Mackbook Pro+iBasso D4 Mamba and Pico USB DAC/AMPs.
