recently i was comparing the m50x, HD 380 and srh 840. after reading things about the srh 840 being superior to the m50x. i decided to go with the srh 840.
whats your budget? imo get best headphone for your budget and invest little bit in dac/amp initially. that way you have good headphone from the start and can add amp later.
dt 880 can be imported for like 17k including delivery and customs.
its a solid choice especially if you like treble. its a worthy headphone you can create setup around. I would suggest you get it and use it with whatever amp you got right now. add a nice otl tube amp later when you have funds. 840 is good but will not scale up as well if you improve your chain.
Edit: Its not that I have heard either. My point is amp can be added later. Also Beyers have a legendary status, something shure is yet to achieve.
