If you change the pads on the 440's they are comfy.

I had the 840 pads on mine and they were still heavy and sat loosely on my noggin, great sound though!

Dont listen to these dudes , the 440 is NOT a good portable can, its on a par with the M50 , not comfy.
 
HD437 is excellent, doesnt fold though, i am using these and they are great office cans and scale well at home.

 
True enough--it's the Shure SRH 840 that is comparable to the M50 in price--has a detachable cord, extra ear pads and more neutral sound.  The M50 has a sturdier build.

 Haven't heard them, personally, but I can vouch for the 840 and 940.  See if you can get a deal on the 840s used.  I think you'll be happy with them...

I owned a pair of 840's, the sound is nice, but they are really uncomfortable after 15-30 minutes my head would hurt where the headband had been.
