Also do you leave all those effects you use during gaming on while you listen to music? I just switched off all the EAX enhancement and 3D stuff to listen to music and it sounds infinitely better IMHO.

OH yea. You can't listen to music with 3D enhancement. I tried that once and music sound so artificial and hollow I immediately turned to entertainment mode where I have my preferred settings for music.. I think that is why Creative has those modes actually..

 

If you want 3D in your music.. Just get a ultrasone can.. S-logic is awesome and creates a musical 3D field and bigger sound stage for closed cans.

So all-in-all, what's better, the Shure 440, 840, or 940? I've heard/read a lot of good things about both the 440's and 840's, I guess the 940's are too new to really have any impressions.

I was looking on the Shure website and didn't see prices, but if someone had an unlimited budget, what would be the best pick for them? Are the 840's worth the price difference over the 440's, and 940's worth the price of the 840's? Or is it just best to stick to the 440's?

Do these cans NEED an amp to drive them or no? I'm Shure (like what I did there?) that they would benefit from an amp, but is one needed to get a good sound?

I  use sheppi (free) and / or high qual reverb (m7 impulse set with reverberate vst), for a bigger soundstage.

Currently only using reverb.

I think it depends on how much you are willing to spend.. With each model comes  more refinement and definition. The top model the 940s are comparable to top end cans that cost $500. The low end 440s are comparable to cans that cost $150..With more refinements the cost rise so if your looking to get one high end the top model will be the best. If you want a sample of the what the shures are about but don't want to spend all that cash..

 

The SRH440 is a great value. I bought mine for $71 on Amazon. They stack up nicely to $150 plus cans... I think all high end cans can benefit from a good amp but I don't use an amp with my SRH440 none needed.
