I can't think of more than one person who would ever want the SRH940 for the genres the OP listed.

 

It was not forgotten. It was excluded.

 

Very best,

i listen to a lot of electronic music. the shure is the best i have for that. it digs deep, and throws sonic cues out to the whole universe.

if you like the really tight butlacking bass (i liked it though) then the rest of the srh940 will draw you in. but for rap and rnb.... im not sure if this is suitable. it is okay for trance though

How about listing a budget?

What source(s) will the headphones be plugged into?

D5000 are my babies.  I'm a sucker for their bass, particularly their sub bass.  Bass aside their just so natural, so... lush/full sounding.  They make me smile :)

Closed can
$150-$300
Mainly a iPod or iPhone
Might buy a amp probably going to spend 40
I listen to pop r&b hip hop rap some trance
I want a nice beat and nice vocal and the bass don't have to be crazy strong

It aounds like you had extent your budget. At that price range, E6+K550 are excellent smily_headphones1.gif complete upgrade from SRH-840.
