Well they are both analytical, resolving and slightly thin sounding closed back headphones with an emphasis on detail retrieval. I know lots of ppl like the 940, they have a following of fans. Ppl who dont like them expected a more fuller sound like the 840, but got something different instead. Fans of the 440 generally like the 940 last I heard
Even tbe product page shows heaps of head fi users love them... where are you getting your information from dude
Most people I've talked to complain about the 940's treble and lack of/poor bass.
