I am going to share my impressions on famous American and German producers of headphones comparing Shure SRH840 vs Beyerdynamic DT770. These are closed back over ear headphones with a wired design.
Shure SRH840 comes with an impedance of 44 Ohm while you may choose the impedance type of Beyerdynamic DT 770 between 16, 32, 80, and 250 Ohm depending on your needs. The frequency response field of Shure is a bit more narrow vs Beyerdynamic, 5Hz-25KHz vs 5Hz-35KHz. But in sensitivity the first model wins 6 dB, 102 vs 96 dB.
The sound of Shure SRH840 is clear and natural. Great bass, moderate mids, and less clear highs. The way of sound reproduction still varies when used with an amp and a regular PC output. The details are enough for mixing and professional use like critical listening.
Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO reproduces a bright sound without overwhelming and drowning any range. Strong bass is supplied with the closed back design of cups. The trebles are crystal and mids are not muddy. The soundstage is not spacious, but the imaging is pretty well.
With the weight of 372 vs 360 g both the bulky designed headphones may seem a bit heavy at first but I got used for it quickly for their comfortable fit. I suppose it is quite decent for long wear.
The headbands are adjustable and well padded. It may seem even tight especially for Beyerdynamic headphones. Both come with unfoldable cups. The padding of Beyerdynamic is softer being made of plush fabric while the leather-like of Shure that seems to me sweaty.
The Shure SRH840 is better headphones in this comparison. Check Shure SRH840 price
