So I'm a complete novice. I made the mistake, a number of years back, of investing in some Beats Headphones. I'm looking to completely upgrade; I would enjoy some headphones which are closed, over the ear headphones. These will primarily be used with my laptop and/or phone. I was looking at head-fi's introduction to headphones guide and a couple struck me. Shure SRH940, Beyerdynamic DT-1350-80, and Beyerdynamic T50p. I'm hoping that the price stay sub-200's. I'm primarily listening to classical atm, but I vary anywhere from pseudo-bass heavy rap to mellow alty. I would really appreciate any guidance that you guys offer me. 

I also included a poll... Not sure how successful or helpful they can be

I prefer SRH840 to 940 except for the uncomfortable headband, which can be modded. They don't sound alike. 840 plays everything well, and 940 has painfully harsh treble. 840 is also built better.

Pretty sure the DT-1350 aren't circumaural. However, you can snag the DT770 pro for $200 and those ARE big ol' over-the-ear closed cans and they sound great.

DT770 Pro is a good choice +1

DT770 would be my choice after SRH840. It has an integrated sound (maybe too bassy) and is well above-average in comfort.
