I find that laughable.
First of all the 840 has like ummm... nooooo bass. Worst headphones I have ever heard bar none. The beyers sound leagues better imo.
Second of all I have had the dt770 and they broke after a year and a half. The 8.35d is almost as detailed as both with a great midrange and bass that extends pretty far.
But one thing is for sure. If you layed out all of the headphones in existence out on asphalt and had a car drive over then the German Maestro 8.35 d would have the least pieces scattered and might even survive. Do some research....they are the most durable cans probably ever made ever. Every review of them can't skip over mentioning their durability. They have literally no weekness for a closed headphone none. Sure others do things better but for the money you can't beat it. You can only come close with an hd25.
I forgot the ops budget sorry for my rant....
I would look for those on sale or from someone who is selling them. When you buy them used even after a year they will be in good condition.
