What about the earpads? are they comfortable enough for a long period of time?
It's fine with modern pop. I can't comment on EDM, but as they're good all-round I should think they'd work. The hardcore EDM listeners I know use V-Modas. But you can do some version of this mod, http://www.head-fi.org/t/676260/fs-shure-srh-840-with-many-mods-includes-world-wide-free-shipping, if you want to increase the bass.
I had no complaints about the earpads. Good quality pleather, maybe memory foam (not sure). They're the standard ones that modders use for Fostex. Better quality and comfort than M50, which becomes too hot.
My only concern about them is the headband. One guy I met didn't think there was any problem because he wore them on a larger size setting. Another guy I know modded the headband perfectly. You can find different mods on Head-Fi. Usually, they take out the strip of rubber on the underside of the headband and replace it with the foam from HD600. New headphone users don't suspect just how much one can customize.
Note: I've seen SRH840 cheaper ($130-150) on the For Sale board. Always check the sellers feedback from other buyers.
