Yup, yup! Going back to the store to demo the 440 today. I must say I'm very impressed with the M50 so far. They sound even better this morning after burning in all night in my sock drawer. The attraction of the 440 to me anyway is the lower price and cords that are a "snap" to replace, literally. I'm not too hard on my equipment but I'm much more likely to go portable and thus actually use a set of cans more if I feel confident that minor mishaps are easily repaired. But what it boils down to is the sound. If the 440 can't hold it's own to the M50 in detail and tone then the extra money involved in keeping the ATH's will be justified I think.
