I've spent far too long here researching the various reviews and comments on headphones at the $200 price point and have reached an impasse. I'm hoping the good folks here can help me choose one of these 'phones as a replacement for my Shure SRH840 based on the following criteria:
The Shures sound great, but I'm looking for something slightly more "fun" when listening to mainly rock (from Pink Floyd to Radiohead) and electronica/pop (from Massive Attack to Madonna). Comfort is also important... the Shure's simply are not very comfortable for me for longer listening at my desk.
By "fun" I don't simply mean massive bass and recessed mids, I mean something with slightly more attack and perhaps bass rumble than the Shures. I want Massive Attack to sound its ominous, rumbling bass-tastic best, and Led Zep or AC/DC to really to come at me with cracking drums and crunching guitars. I'm used to closed headphones, so soundstage is of slightly lesser importance than sound.

So what would you recommend? Beyer 880s, Beyer 990s (both the 250 Ohm variety), or the Denons? If you want to recommend any others, please let me know why. Thanks.
