I've been using them nightly for movies in the middle of the night (3am~4am... like right now!). They're incredible for movies. The detail was crazy. Movies have so much detail we miss because we keep volumes tolerable for everyone, you have to turn it up to hear everything in quiet scenes, but on a headphone those details are very apparent, and the SRH940 puts them forward. It's glorious. It has good deep bass extension without letting it take over. So you get your explosions, your rumbling deep space ships floating in space, but in a way that makes it so you can still hear someone whisper. Incredible headphones for the cost for everything I've put them up against so far. Like, literlaly, I'm selling my signature's list of headphones at this point because this headphone just took my breath away. I'm keeping the Pro 900's and that's it, simply due to bass crazy basshead moments I have for electronic music. At this point, I just use my SRH940's and PRO 900's. And of them, the SRH940 gets all the love because it just has more application to everything.
I can't recommend it enough if you want a detail monster headphone with great forward luscious mids and 5hz bass extension. It's a comfortable Grado with bass that is closed. Literally.
