Audio Technica ATH-M50S/LE vs. Shure SRH940

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I would appreciate input on how these headphones compare.  I like the fact that the A-T can be had for less than half the price of the Shure.  It also got a five-star rating from Headroom.  I do not like the hard-wired cable, though, and the Shure's detachable cable would seem to work with the same aftermarket cables bought for my Q701.  I do not necessarily need a closed design, either, but I would like to add another set of cans to my small bunch, the Q701 and the HD650. I like the 650's bottom end and overall smoothness, but these headphones are not that comfortable for me.  I prefer the Q701 for comfort, and perhaps overall, too.

 

Does the "LE" A-T version sound any different than the regular "S"?

 

I welcome your thoughts.  Before I forget: I welcome recommendations other than the A-T or Shure, but I find on-ear 'phones dreadfully (painfully) uncomfortable.
