Bayerdynamic 770 Pro 32 Ohm. Definitely a upgrade from M50. :-)

Shure SRH-840 and ATH-Pro700 are pretty good.

For this price range I honestly think that the HM5 might be better. The ATH-Pro700 MKII is a no go for anyone who likes comfort. I use the Q701, which people always complain is uncomfortable and I feel fine with them even after hours. But the Pro700 is a whole different story. Those things....they are bad. The clam is so tight is crushes your head and gives you headaches. I don't believe that i have a big head, but I know that those things hurt. I tried to stretch the band by leaving it overnight between books, and that didn't work. The pads are so bad....just words cannot describe how lackluster they are. They are thin, your ear touches the driver, it is very irritating, and very uncomfortable. To be honest, a lot of things on this site get good reviews, but there's always someone out there that must justify their purchase and there's always someone out there who likes something that others don't. 

IMO Hm5 is the best overall choice.

I had the M50's for quite some time. It was great as a first pair of HP's above $100 price point. Good bass. Clarity and details were the best thing that happened to me in a while lol. It's very well built and portable because it can be folded snd comes with a carrying pouch. The comfort is OK. 

 

Then I purchased an entirely different HP, an HD 598, and my ears completely refused to go back to the m50's. The comfort on 598's is heavenly good.

I also hear a quickness and a responsiveness from these that the m50's lacked. The soundstage is amazing as well. So, I had to divorce my m50's.

 

I f you don't mind an open HP that does not isolate sound, has a nice and controlled bass, a bit bulky, not that portable, consider the HD 558. It's sound signature is very close to the 598's. 

 

 

Now, I am enjoying the Philips Fidelio X1's. It's a bit out of your price range, but really fun. Warm sounding with great bass. They were selling for like $150 a while ago. 

 

 

Good luck  :wink: 

+1 for M50 to HD598
