Audio Technica ATH-M40X Cup Depth

New Head-Fier

I currently own a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M30's, and they sound good, but the faux leather ear pads have been heavily pressed down and have lost a lot of the size it once had. So now, I am in the market for a new pair of cans. The pads weren't that great to begin with anyway, as they have always made my protruding ears uncomfortable after wearing them for a few hours.
I have been heavily intrigued by the new ATH-MxxX line of headphones, and the M40X's are right in my budget range of about $100. Can any person who owns a pair of these comment on the depth of the cup, as in the depth your ear would need to go into the cans to touch the foam cover of the plastic of the driver housing? Even better, can you provide a measurement on their depth and a durability report on the pads? I have never owned a pair of headphones that have any leather part to them. 
First post, please excuse anything that might be a little out of line.
Thanks to anyone who replies. 
EDIT: Realized 'volume' wasn't the best word to use for the ear cup size, changed it.
