I have found with supra-aural cans like the ES-7 that positioning on the ear matters for comfort, try moving the cups so the edges of the pad cover the lobe of the ear and the top of the ear and avoiding any raised parts of the ear, I find that it helps me wear them for a lot longer then the position I had previously. Also try stretched the headphones on a box that is slightly larger then your head for a night or two, should decrease the clamping force.
bump added price and other IEMS
I am also a big fan of radiohead, although I don't have the collection of IEMs others might be able to tell you about, I can say that the westone 2 is very good for their music I find. The overall signiture is more flat with a slight bump in the mids (makes the vocals come out). They also have a pretty good sound stage and separation.Only thing in your criteria that it might not satisfy is the deep bass, while the quality and quantity is there, it doesn;t go all the way...

I got my ES7s maybe 2 weeks ago and my thoughts were similar to yours caluub. However one 5 hour burn in with pink noise opened them up a lot in terms of sound. For comfort I had to bend the joints to reduce the clamping force and finally found a position on my ears that makes them comfortable. So far I like them a lot mor ethen any other headphone I have and can't put them down.
