Although I couldn't get a hand on the Sony's, these cans sound better than the Sennheisers and better fit my allround & travel purposes.
As said, these cans sound really good, and this for all kinds of music (classical, jazz, soundtracks, rock, pop, etc). At a first listening I was amazed with the sound quality. Everything online reviewers say about it is true. In addition: soundstage is excellent, bass is good. There is some sound leakage but truly it's minimal.
I must add that I use the equaliser on my ipod to modify sound depending on the kind of music I'm listening to. That makes a considerable difference. Also important: volume possibilities are also fine with these cans. I don't have to put my ipod on maximum volume in public spaces all the time to enjoy my music.
As to clamp, in the beginning it got a bit tight for me after about 1h30 - 2h of listening but then I put the cans between books about the width of my head for a night. Now they sit very nicely. The surpluss clamp seems to be gone.
What I also like about the M40x is that they are lighter than the M50x.
My only remark is that passive noise cancelling could probably have been better. You still do hear what happens around you. If this is normal level noise it cancels out once you put on a decent music volume. In especially busy public spaces and busy traffic streets, though, the cans are struggling to keep up. If that's what you want to buy the M40x for maybe you could (also) consider active noise cancelling headphones. In the train it doesn't bother me.Read more ›

Excellent clear and balanced sound
Lows are not overpowering
Highs are not screechy
Mids are crips
90 degrees rotation is useful although a weakness in the build
Neutral in style
Sits comfortably on the head
Not for big heads
Not for small heads
Poor noise cancellation
Some sound leakage
No case included
Value product with flagship build quality and sound
* decent attenuation of external noise
* relatively - lightweight, durable and compact
* flat tuning / no tonal affectation
* capable of performing well without powerful amplification
And these deliver on all counts.
As extras I was less concerned about, but am pleased to say they're also:
* fantastically comfortable
* supplied with a choice of cables
* thoughtfully engineered
* great looking and feeling
They drive perfectly directly from the line-out of my ZOOM H2n allowing me to accurately monitor recording in-situ with a frankly extraordinary level of fine and deliberate detail.
And although I have yet to use them for the purpose, I am supremely confident they'll make editing a breeze!
When researching which headphones to get, I read and watched a lot of reviews, featuring folk describing their experience of listening through the various phones (including these), but every time the words left me still wondering what to expect.
Fortunately I then found a really useful video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udLoAV7YmjA ) from YouTube Channel "SonicSenseProAudio" which demonstrates (by the use of high end technical recording equipment and techniques) comparison of a few popular contenders in this price range and category, so you can hear the difference(s) yourself.
These phones really do what the video suggests - the response is completely flat.
They put out exactly what goes in! Precisely what monitors should do.
I am extremely pleased I didn't go down the Sennheiser path.
These are fantastic! :-)
+ Incredible quality to price ratio
+ Clear, crisp sound, balanced neutrally, great for all music types
+ Brilliant bass response (I'm hearing sub-bass in tracks really well)
+ Attractive, rugged design
+ Comfortable on the ears
+ Sound immense with a powerful audio source (I'm using a FiiO portable audio player and there is so much volume driving the 'phones - it's a great combination)
+ Detachable cable, twist to lock (the latter is a good idea - I've recently had faulty AKG Y50s where the jack was way too loose, and decided not to risk another pair in case same issue arose)
A couple of considerations: The shorter lead has a coil at the device end, and the longer one is too long for portability; these are designed as studio monitors / home use, but Audio Technica might note that people like to buy them for portable use, and hence supply a shorter cable. You can buy one, but it's £15. (Note: I use the shorter supplied cable with a metal office paper clamp to hold in place to my belt - works perfectly!)
They are big, and warm - a little hot and bulky for the Summer. My ES55s were more suitable in this respect.
Overall, fantastic headphones.
