How much difference is there between $500 headphones and $2000 headphones.

Thread Starter 

In the $500-$700 bracket we have the:

- Shure SRH 1840

- HE-500

- Sennheiser 6xx series

 

How much worse do these headphone sound in comparison to headphones in the $2000 range like the:

- Sennheiser HD-800

- LCD-3

- AKG K812

 

Without taking into account the costs of the amplifiers, is the difference worth 4 times the price? How much difference would I notice?

The Hifiman HE-500 is an excellent headphone for $700. But the Sennheiser HD800 at $1500 does everything better. I would definately say that it is worth the price difference.
