While I voted something else, I'm also surprised the M50x aren't voted higher, sheerly based on how often I see them recommend as starter Audiophile headphones. I was also surprised Audio Technica didn't even feature one of them at the very large Munich High End show... a rep told me the M50x was indeed very popular (I think he said it was their best seller, but I don't remember for sure) but it wasn't part of their Audiophile lineup (I think he said it was part of their Pro lineup).
Bose are hella popular, partially because of their reputation, and partially because of their motto/marketing. I cannot recommend them however... spend 3 minutes comparing them with hi-fi headphones, and you'll realize that Bose has a particular and strongly colored house sound that is far from natural, and their slow drivers suffer from a lot of bass bloom bleeding over mids and detail. The sound flavor, and wearing comfort, will indeed appeal to some people, just like some people really enjoy chocolate covered cherries, but the headphones simply do not pair well with many music genres and don't suit all-round usage.

Agreed about Bose. Just marketing and highly impressionable and suggestable sheeple. Sound as you said & worse.
