I will await Oregonian's comparison before possibly ordering it. The stock seems to disappear all the time on amazon here in europe.
My concern is the bass and timbre... I loved both aspects on Q40, the bass has just awesome punch and texture and control while still being pretty powerful and it has such a good balance between mid and subbass which is extremely important for hardstyle that I listen to. The timbre again on Q40 is some of the most natural sounding timbre I've yet tried. instruments/vocals etc sounds like they do in real life, not overly sparkly but not muddy/veiled either, a satisfying thickness but not too thick.
For me the bass is more about feeling it than hearing it, therefore I don't like bloated sounding subbass in particular. I want to feel it punching my earchannels but if I can I gladly have it like an invisible sound or very tight and punchy/fast that I just feel so I can focus on the rest of the music more.
