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.
