Again, that is up to you to decide. If you are happy with them, then try not to think about other headphones. Just enjoy the music.
The only complaint I sometimes have is the lack of isolation, but that is the trade off when you want an enormous soundstage. Right now I'm trying to listen to mine, but next door my neighbor has a tree crew at the house cutting down trees and chipping tree limbs and such and I can hear it in the background.
Other than that I have become content with my setup, and now my new addiction is buying new music to enjoy on them. My music library isn't very big, and I need to grow it. That is my new focus. In the last 3-4 months or so my music collection has been growing at a very very good pace. I've been buying used CD's at an alarming rate.
If you want to keep building up your system, you can always try better/different amps and DAC's as well. The Q701, especially when modded, really deserves a good source and good equipment driving it. If you are using the Fiio E07k in your signature, there is definitely room for improvement to better the sound from your Q701. Even the ODAC or the Schiit Modi would be a drastic improvement over the DAC section of the E07k. I had the E17 prior to what I have now and it is a pretty easy difference to hear. Better bass, better detail, better soundstage, the list goes on. A better/more powerful amp would of course help as well. Just something to think about.
