I love my VECTRs big jump from the beats solos in quality and my sennheiser collection, some advice on the Q40s and whether to buy or not, cheers:)
(i also run a Fiio E06 amplifier sometimes so quality with and without is quite important.)
Now, keep in mind I love the Q40's. The comment you made about comfort made me pause - the Q40 stock is far from comfortable. They need the clamp stretched out a little and some pads swapped to make them reasonable but never will you call them über comfy. I put Shure 840 pads on them, and they still are not 4-5 hours at a clip comfy.
with your comments, I'd look at the Ultrasone Pro900, as it has truly explosive bass, very comfy and I think very sharp looking.
Just my opinion.
