It really depends on what you are looking for. If you want smooth and relaxed sound, hd598 is likely the best choice amongst the ones I've reviewes.

Guess I made a bad decision buying the m50x? 

 

Almost a month after using it and its the best phones I ever had (besides my Bose AE2 which I lost as soon as I got it) 

I found its too big and covering almost 50% of my face. Since my head is small, it put pressure on the top of my head and making it hard to wear it a few hours straight...so should I sell it and get another one?

Hmm... that totally depends on what you want. So are you looking for a smaller headphone with better comfort?

What kind of sound do you want?

 

Light and easy on your head would be something like K550, ESW9A, MDR-1R(my best recommendation), or iems. Sorry I didn't list anything reviewed, but I'm assuming you want a closed back headphone.

 

If it doesn't work for you, it's not going to work. I say you should sell the M50x and go for a more comfy one.

MDR-1R seems like a good option since I listen to a lot of female vocal songs. I'm planning to get an iem later too for portable use. oh...I have more headphone choices now :p 

 

I find it hard to sell my m50x...(selling at around $150-$160)

Yup. 1R is really really comfy and does a good job with female vocals.

But the padding and comfort is just superb. They are one of the most comfortable headphones I've used. It even beats the SRH1540 in terms of comfort.

I agree. Well, the pads are kind of thin. They feel lighter than the M50 to me.
