Excerpt: The Ath-M50 is the aging flagship of DJ headphones off audio-technica's line. Its design is simple, heavy plastics bound with metal adornments and will easy withstand much abuse. Add in some soft quality pads, and these headphones are very comfortable even after long periods of usage. As for the sound quality, you will be pleasantly surprised at how well these perform given their relatively low price point.
Audiotechnica ATH-M50 is great sound for a good price

Excerpt: These headphones are humongous if you've never bought expensive headphones before. As you get into audiophile quality or more professional studio quality, you tend to see more of the larger sizes, and this is no exception. However, much of this size is due to padding, which makes it comfy for your ears and top of your head. It does clamp down a bit for people with wider heads, so stretch it on a few books or a computer tower for a couple days.
Amazing Reproduction of Sound, But Don't Use When Eating Cereal

Excerpt: I don't have all that much experience in high-end headphones, but these are the best I've ever heard. You can easily tell the goal with these is to reproduce the music as exact as possible. Most people do say they take a decent amount of break-in time to sound up to their standards, and I found that to be true as well. I understand this is quite normal for higher-end headphones.
