I'd second HE-400 without knowing more about what you'd like.

Hmm, they look interesting, but are too pricey over here.. I have re-titled the thread to use Swedish currency instead.

Then I'd lean towards the X1 (looking at your list)

X1, SR325i, DT880, MDR MA900 should all be great. The sr325i is on ear though.

Hej Kingofzero, What do you look in new pair of head phones? more bass? neutral sound? or more detailed sound? elaborate more about your requirement.

what is the source of the music? mp3 or audio cds? or flac (lossless quality files)?

 

I was looking for headphones with wider soundstage.  I was told that x1 are bassy..... I have been considering x1. I dropped them. I would lean for HD 650 or Q702 on your list.

Honestly I'm not sure what kind of sound I'm looking for, I guess I'm not looking analyze sound, I want them to "sound good" for the type of music I listen to.

 

Music source is primarily mp3@320 and some FLAC (which I'm looking to invest more in), through Audio-GD NFB-11.32.

Take sometime to read the reviews of different headphones in head-fi.

I would suggest you to invest in a 1000 SEK headphone first. Go for an upgrade after sometime.
