I've heard the Denon D2000 and thought they were decent, but yeah I agree it's a bit fatiguing too.
The Q40s seem to dip around 3-4khz. Lots of headphones dip in that area (on purpose) to prevent fatigue. Some people still get fatigue from the beyers because of the sharp rise after the dip. The rise is a bit too early on the freq spectrum IMO, but still a decent can. (Heck I have the 80ohm ver).
Yeah, that spike between 3-4khz will definitely make it feel a bit more bright. The ears are quite sensitive around this freq too.

I think the dip between them will help reduce a bit of sibilance. I wish they had distortion measurements too.
Grats keep us posted!
Depends on the type of music I think. Bassier, warmer cans are a bit more forgiving of electronic music as it can be a bit harsh.
I have the xb500 and the bass bleeds into the mids. The denons sound too hard for edm (for me).
I'm going to have to second Craigster75 on this. The pro 900 shouldn't by any means be compared to the sig DJ. The pro 900 has a higher distortion as well. XB500 wins the award for most bass, more than Q40, pro900 and M100. Just to compare distortion here:   Pro 900 Measured (Note distortion) http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/UltrasonePRO900.pdf   XB500 (Most bass quantity, but bass bleeds into mids a bit, sounding a bit...
The distortion curves can tell u a lot about quality.
Naw, I wouldn't call them bass monsters. They are bassy, but I believe the vmoda LP (muddy) and Sony XB500(Sub and mid bass) + XB700 (sub bass, less mid bass) hold that record here.
