Thanks for the reply. I guess I'm just curious if any of the value discussions have been updated now that prices have shifted. The MA900s have risen in price, while the X1s have dropped. The Q701s have had their retail price drop as well. Now that all three of them are more or less the exact same price, I was wondering if they have moved up or down the price/performance list.
When reviewed, for example, the X1s were about $300 and the MA900 $180. At that time the MA900 was a slightly better value in a close contest for overall performance. Now that they are both essentially the same price, does that shift the value scale in favor of the X1?
I know sooner or later I'm just going to have to pull the trigger on something, but I'm as obsessed with deals as I am with headphones and don't want to overlook anything now that the prices have shifted.
For the price, the X1 is a no brainer over your the MA900. The Q701's are great for positional sound but aren't nearly as fun as the X1. I'd rather spend the extra $30 on the X1's any day of the week over the Q701.
