Are the pads on the A990x the same size as those on the ATH-M50?

No, the M50 pads are slightly taller. ATH-M50 pads are a bit looser fit compared to the smaller opening of the A900X.

Too bad. My ears are already cramped in the M50; I wouldn't want to go smaller.

Just got my a900x.

Overall, I am very satisfied.

Other than bass, a900x outstands m50x in every way.

Sound stage is great as metal571 described. For closed can, it's unbeatable especially for its price.

These are sooo comfortable to wear for hours and hours.

So light and nearly no pressure (at least to me), I am now a huge fan of wing system.

The only downside is the significant sound leakage I found while I was listening to these.

Lucky you, the wing system to me is it's biggest weakness. I can't wear it for more than 20 mins, before it starts to really bother me.My M50 is far more comfortable. So is my AKG Q701, the bumps never bothered me, but  so many complained about them so go figure. ;)

 I'm thinking to sell my A900X since I never use it.

Did you try putting an elastic string through the wing? I heard it worked for some users.

Yup I did, it made things worse overall.

Before you actually sell it, try using longer & looser string.

I think it should work.

I also feel the wings one of the best headphone designs even though ive had to find the right tension rubberband for it. After that it is so comfortable ... You dont realise how comfortable and pressureless it is until you put on other headphones. Even the sony z7.... Yes its very soft and plush but you can still feel it on your head whereas the a900x sort of floats there. Its nice.
