AKG K550 vs BEYER T70 vs SHURE SRH940

Ok,i narrow it down to these three.

All are close,all cost almost the same.

Which one is the best?

Looking for a detailed and neutral and natural sound,similar to Sennheiser HD800.

It would be helpful to know what source(s) the headphones are going to be plugged into?

Are the headphones for just music? or movies? or gaming?

Just for music

They will be plugged into a budget DAC\amp.

Which budget DAC & amp?

The 32-Ohm K550s and 42-Ohm SRH-940 would be best with a low impedance headphone amplifier.

(portable stuff is usually low impedance)

 

Where as the 250-Ohm T70s are great for receiver or a decent headphone amplifier and would be fine with a headphone amplifier that has a high output impedance (but a low impedance amplifier is just fine to).

I'm also wondering about this. I'm looking to replace my K550's due to an unnatural treble and otherwise "thin" sound. Their soundstage is excellent though
