Hi, I found the Shure SRH1440 for about US$320 in Hong Kong. Is this the best choice for me? I listen to a lot of different genres of music, but mostly alternative and electronic. If I buy the headphones from DMA Audio, will I be able to get them serviced in North America? I apologize for the brevity; I'm typing this on my phone. Thanks.

You can buy one from reputable sellers on eBay by putting a best offer for $270. That's how I was able to get mine, anyway.
 
The K701, for one, is better IMO than the SRH1440.

Get them!
I just picked up a pair of 1440s today and I'm blown away.  I chose these over the AKG K701s because these come in at a favorable 37 Ohms and are equipped with great accessories.  Warmth, balance, depth, and control sum these cans up.  I have no intention of changing my 'at-home' headphones from these.
