I haven't done a proper side-by-side with the ATH-M50x but these are really nice for high-quality portable listening. I won't be doing a bluetooth mod on it but now I understand why people keep on saying how great these are. Really comfortable to wear as well.

so they sound good but they sure don't feel good after falling asleep with them on for a few hours on an airplane
