no.

more headroom. I don't know if they last longer, I don't really think so, I had my emg's wired for 9v before and went to 18v too, they lasted just as long.

If you wire them in parrallell they still give 9v but last longer, if you wire them in series they give 18v but last as long as usual.

The amount of additional signal above the nominal input level that can be sent into or out of an electronic device before clipping distortion occurs.

you can use more volume before the signal distorts, basically you get more 'usable' volume and maintain your tone at that volume.
