Howdy, first post.
I have two pairs or "More me" esque microphones but under a different branding (sorry Harvey). They are rugged and I find the The volume controls and mono/Stereo switch quite useful. They are also great for getting a feel for how a inexpensive "bookshelf" stereo system might interpret the mix. I paid $18.00 a piece at my local "old timey" electronics shop, probably the best AND the cheapest of the budget ($12-$60)headphones. For more pleasurable listening and fairly honest monitoring I turn to my Fostex T50RP .

I must tell you, you'd have been better off getting the ones without the volume controls; those will break on you. Other than that, they're the same.

I have a pair of Ultrasone 650's and they're the best cans I've ever used (compared to similarily-priced AKGs and Sennheisers, anyway). I wouldn't recommend them for tracking, though; you'll get a lot of leakage.

No over-hyped bass, just lots of clarity and no fatigue whatsoever.

I love the Grado SR 80s, though you're right, not so great for tracking - I think I damaged my hearing sitting next to the drummer with Grados on. But for mixing and just listening (iPod, etc) they're as good as the old HD-414s, and that's saying something.

Is anyone using the ATM50's for tracking ? How are they for leakage?

I haven't heard the ATM50's yet, but a lotta people that I know sure seem to like 'em.

Awesome for tracking... VERY good isolation, better than most.  And they are quite loud as well.  Great for drummers (no click leakage) great for vocals (no cue leakage).

And they sound great!

6 pairs ATH-M50 here.  I sold all my other tracking phones.  Very happy.

Wait a minute... this is the third year that I've posted in this thread!  

In 2006 I liked the ATH-M40fs, in 2007 (when they started shipping) I bought the ATH-M50s.  In 2008 I still feel like I have exactly what I want.  I've stopped looking for other cans.  Hooray.
