Will I Feel a Noticable Difference? [Skates]

Hey I'm hoping some of you equipment experts could lend a hand: I've been using Easton Synergy 555's now for a couple seasons (about 200 bucks canadian at the time), and was wondering if I would feel a noticable difference in my skating if I upgraded? I have been talking to a few people at the rink and the general response seems to be that the most noticable thing with a price increase will be the fit of the boot. My Easton's aren't a terrible fit right now, but compared to my last skates (a couple sizes too big), anything feels good. I'm not sure if I should splurge and upgrade? Would I even notice a difference between my 200 dollar skates and say, a 350 or 400 dollar pair?

Thanks for the insight.
