Ouch they we're still on almost the same price as the HE-400. Don't know but it seems like I will be ordering the HE-300 after all. Found a store in Sweden that sells Hifiman, but its at 48 euro more here then if i buy them from Germany. On the DT 880 Edition is priced as the HE-300 from Germany. To bad there isn't a shop in my town where i can listen to Beyerdynamic..
Quite a huge price difference, the Q701s are cheaper than the HE-300s here in the US. Basically Beyerdynamics are clean, clear, and smooth sounding, they tend to have a pronounced treble, so if you are sensitive to treble, it may be something to note, luckily the treble is very easy to EQ. Beyers tend to have good bass and the midrange is quite good as well. They don't tend to be that musical to my ears though.
