Pros: Balanced sound, controlled bass, not too bright

Cons: Earpads get uncomfortable at times, clamping force loosen after a while

As this is my first headphones that costed me over 50$, I kind of regretting buying it at first, because it costed too much. But after a while, I listen to it more and more and I came to like it.

I'm new to Head-Fi (having just joined to leave this review), but I have been lurking about as a guest from time to time, especially on that one thread that's a collection of IEM reviews, as well as a few discussions on the output quality of various superphones. I finally decided to buy the ATH-M50s/LE after some deliberation over whether I ought to buy headphones at all, given that I liked their audio signature and...
