The Shure 940 are reported less bassy and have much improved detailing over the 840. The W1000x like the other full sized Audio Technicas has a lighter sound with a bit of resonance and are very comfortable, with a mid-uppermid focus. The Senn HD600 slots somewhere in the middle, is open backed unlike the other two, with a focus on the mids-lowermid.
Hi I'm looking for a pair of closed headphones that can be used without an amp. I will be using these headphones to use whilst travelling and I mainly listen to Hip Hop. I currently own a pair of Sennheiser HD 25's but I find them really uncomfortable and I am looking to try and find a pair of headphones that match or exceed their sound quality but are much more comfortable. Could anyone help me find a pair of headphones that will be best for me, all help would be appreciated.
Sorry I forgot to mention but I don't want to spend any more than £200.
