Hey guys, looking for comfortable closed cans for work. Something detailed, a little extra bass is fine but not DT770 levels, comfort with reading glasses is more important than the best sound. A900 type sound is good, Beats by Dr Dre (currently wearing, they were free) aren't super detailed but the sound isn't too bad. I was thinking Senn Momentum, Sony R1, but this is just to block out noise at work and I don't really want to spend that kind of money if I can avoid...
  Budget choice - Superlux 662, either the base 662 or 662B model, $50. Upgrade with velour pads, $13.
Interestingly I'm also looking at the $50 Superlux 662F's... I think I'll order them, see how they sound, then compare with the headphones costing 2-4 times as much!
Any news on the 662 II/Evo?   How do people like the new evo models of any of the superlux cans compared with the previous models?
  Suggest you read this thread, there's a good comparison in there.
Can anyone expand on the comfort of the 662F? I guess all the 662's are similarly built, so happy to hear from anyone, especially people who wear glasses.
They're in stock in a local store, along with Senn Momentum, some Audio Technica cans, PSB M4U 1/2, and I hope to find the MDR-R1's as well. I'll report back next week.
Email parts at  atus dot com   "The A900 pads are $7.16/pair and the W1000’s are $31.30/pair. Postage will be $10.00. Please provide address and credit card information. We can also do a Paypal transaction."   W1000 pads don't fit on an A900, I tried it, my partner tried it, we just couldn't get them on. If anyone wants W1000 pads PM me with an offer (they're no use to me at all).
  The 3D wing was great in the A900, but the A900X broke it. Comfort for me is primary over sound quality as if I can't keep the headphones on my head for a good amount of time I'm not going to appreciate the sound. The 3D Wing is already pretty big and ugly for work too. If there was a decent mod then I may have done it, but it was pretty ugly. If I knew there weren't many other options I may have reconsidered though.   I may have to give the mad dogs a go, the others...
  I know, great sound, but they looked so stupid with a rubber band up there. I didn't want to support a company that makes poor products.
