Received my SRH940 today and I'm listening to some of my reference track (Pat Metheny, Patrick Watson, Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Pulse, Radiohead & Al Di Meola to name a few) and so far out of my Dacport I'm not craving for more Bass. I like how nice and smooth the MID's are and the HI are just great (no sibilance so far). I'm using the original velour's pad but I also got the SRH840 Pleather pads that I will try later. I sold the Q701 for these and so far I'm happy with the trade.
Note: Just tried Angel from Massive Attack and the Bass is nicely reproduced and the little meow sound at 42 sec in the track is clearly audible (not always the case with other phone)
Note2: The cymbals and hi-hat are just so clear and well layered.
Note3: Try this track with the 940
