It's comfy indeed but I can't believe you guys are scrunching up the stock headband to snap all the buttons like that! I tried it for 1 minute and then undid it and the stock headband look battered and abused.
I'm surprised you're having any trouble at all. It really only took me a few seconds on my first try. The first 3 clips go in easily and then I kind of sort of bent the whole pad back by pushing on the edge with my thumb and the 4th clip popped into place.
I already took it out and set it under a coaster to flatten it out. You know I may take back what I said about the velours after just 10 minutes. Getting itchy already. I hate when velours do this. They go on all nice and soft and then 5 minutes later I'm scratching the side of my face and repositioning the cans.
Noticed this just now when I picked up my headphones. Not sure if it's been like this since I bought them last month but I can't seem to get it lie flat. I hadn't taken them off until I took this picture. So I just put the velours on (went on much easier than I was expecting) and I'll worry about this bump later! Velours are comfy. :)
Now this is more like it. Something about the soundstage on this recording makes it sound very between the ears to me though. That sax player looks like Jim from American Pie. Check this out. This whole album is one of the best recordings I've ever heard. This particular upload sounds a bit veiled though. This is good too. http://youtu.be/WCOP7dPlDtw
