Default AT M50 vs AKG 518

if anybody owns both of these can you speak to the size differences? how much smaller is the 518?

The k518 is about the same size as the hd25-1 ii's, and they sit on top of the ear. The m50 goes over the ears, covers them completely. I find I'm partial to the on-the-ear type personally. But, comfort wise, the m50 is the better of the 2 - but I'm immune to the issues w/on the ears,...I luv my k518's!!! I'll take them over the m50's any day.

IMO - YMMV.

And yes, I own/have owned all the hp's mentioned.

thanks. I took a shot and ordered a pair. I will be carrying them around all the time so smaller is better and the price difference is substantial. got them online at bestbuy.com so I can return them to the store if I dont like them. win-win.
