Dt770 (owned): very nice sub bass extension, but lacks a bit of midbass. Other than than they're very good (comfy, built great)
Q40 (own): fantastic for EDM. Superb subbass extension and nice midbass quantity. The mids are also great and forward. BUT uncomfortable and some people find the clamping pressure high.
M100 (listened): also excellent for EDM, bass impact is good. But mids are recessed. Build quality is great.
I haven't listened to the others, but the he-400 and Fidelio x1 are often recommended for electronic music.
Yep yep, spot on with the Q40s. They are probably the best out of your lot. Just buy a refurb pair for $60, get some $30 beyer velours and sit back and enjoy. I sure do.
For open cans the he400 are best. Great bass, very unique and somewhat wonky high mids and treble but all still very smooth and detailed and just a really fun can.
For the price of either of these, they are both steals. Some of the best deals imo. You would be happy with both.
