Best closed can I've tried by far in that price range is the Audio Technica M50X.

Can consider the Audio Technica ATH-A990 if you don't need it to be portable.

Upon checking the review on MSR7.. I think I'm going for it rather than M50x..

Hachi.Tech sells online for $250 + 3% rebate now.

want to buy my m40x? $100. with 3 cables + new earpads, velvet/velour and leather. the velvet/velour wont spoil over time like leather.

anyway m50x has heavy bass which kind of spoils the music experience...

Is the clamp too tight for comfort?

Compared to my other headphone (Creative Aurvana Gold) .. This is OK for me..

Since the clamp is not that tight, the sound isolation is just OK compared to my other headphone as mentioned above.
