Amazon.com is having a sale on the AKG Q701 models for $199: http://www.amazon.com/AKG-Signature-Reference-Class-Premium-Headphones/dp/B004444OFK
I'm considering purchasing a pair as I've read good things about them; problem is that I'm unsure if it's worth the investment with my current setup.
I currently had an Audio Technica AD900 (not the newer X version) with a Fiio E17.
I don't really need an emphasis on bass but the types of music I mostly listen to are trance, classic, jazz, and jrock with mostly female vocals. For my listening needs the AD900's have done great.
Any advice on whether I should jump in and get the Q701's or stick with what I have?
I reside in Canada so unfortunately there aren't any places that would allow me to audition them.
