Are these really that good? I want them for the fact that I've read many positive reviews, and the fact that they used to be $700. I have heard they are even better balanced, so maybe I could use them with an Ibasso Toucan? A headphone meet is coming up in my area, so should I buy these headphones because they are so good and revealing and would help me to hear differences in gear?

Coming from experience (listening to the SA5000 right now), they are undoubtedly the most detailed and crisp headphone I've heard (and several other head-fier's agree with me).  However, the SA5000 achieves such clarity through a unique sound colouration that provides a cold, sterile and slightly treble-heavy listen.  The detail and cold sterility might be too much for some. 
 
I bought mine because I listen to alot of electronica where instrument timbre isn't all that important and the SA5000 came highly recommended.  I would buy them again in a heart beat for $200.

How did you buy internationally? Their page doesn't show international shipping

Anyway well it looks like they're out at $200 but I did manage to get one for $225. Looks like I'm going to have to thin the herd sooner than I expected.
