With the Q701 now made in China, hopefully it will drop the manufacturing costs enough to bring down the price on the Q701.

thought I'd add to this. I bought these off Amazon US recently as well and mine are also made in china. Here's my rant:

Does anyone know if the K702 were all Austrian made?  I am sure China does a good job making the Q701, but I don't want it.  If I am investing in an Audiophile headphone, I prefer one that was not outsourced due to cost, even if it costs a little more.  To me it makes it more of a collectors piece and that is really a part of the enjoyment.

Well, I bought some black Q701's from Amazon during Black Friday and they say, "Made in Austria" all over them.

Looks like we can close the file on that one. It's displeasing to learn that even their mid-priced models are no longer of European manufacture.

This is why the price is much less than the o.p.
