    I have tried it out myself, it was a pretty good phone but the strange thing with all the Shure headphones is that they sounds somewhat better brand new than burned-in. The SRH940 was rather sparkly but over time it just disappeared. Although I bought the DT150 over it, but if you haven't got a powerful amp, the Shure is still a better choice.

    i dont quite like the DT150, as the sound is too plain for me

    i dont know if the SRH940 i tested earlier already burned in or not.
    but like the sound sig of it,

    also, is there any open backed, similarly priced and similarly sounding headphones with the SRH940

    the closest i got was AD900, but i lacks bass, big time

    Logitech H555. Got them at a sale for €27. Surprisingly good sound. Maybe not perfect for gaming and music, but it's good overall.

    I really wish the mic was detachable though.

    Steelseries 5H V|2, good, but feel a bit "plastic". Never used the microphone.
    Sony MDR-XB700, a gift from a friend. Tested them once, was ok. Maybe a bit too tight around the ears.

    Upgraded to some Sony MDR-V6's about a month ago from the HA-RX700's

    I won a pair of Denon AH-D510R's really shortly after buying the Sony's, which was crazy. The Denon cans will probably be here in about a month. No one wants to hustle when you're losing money :p

    I don't use a soundcard or amp though, so I'm probably missing out. The bass is almost non-existent.

    Currently using Logitech G35's bought them for around $60 AUD so the price seemed fair considering I don't have a soundcard or headphone amp at the moment, so these definitely work for me gaming wise

    For music audio I have made a bad choice it seems I've paid an insane amount of money for this pair Sennheiser HD 215's, $140 AUD! If I knew any better I'd have gotten the Audio Technica ATH-M50's oh well. Although I do like these 215's as the bass isn't overbearing and allows me to hear every detail of my kit and the boom from the bass is present so I am not complaining too much.

    For music I don't really want that much bass, it's better with a level sound. Too much bass can be misleading.

    M50 has quite big bass, but its not overpowering other frequency,
    the bass si still clear and goes down deep,,
    has moderate punch,

    and if you want truly level sound, try the ER4P/ER4S

    both offers very flat frequency response, with S a bit brighter,
    i think youll like it

    Yeah I heard many good things about the M50 and the price for it is awesome seems to be the top choice from one of the Vdrum forums I frequently visit, I am quite envious at the moment :D

    A pair of Sennheiser HD202's. They're very good for their price but the bass is a bit OP.

    That's the problem with audio, there is no roof. It's only about how much you can spend, and once you get to the point where you get used to good sound it's painful to go back. :(
