Did no one put the cd2000s on at the WOH tour? Compared to the cd2ks, the cd3ks are like two pieces of sandpaper. Sound, otoh. . .

I remember the Sony V900s and V600s being very comfy. Too bad about the sound however.

1. Sony CD3K - barely can tell when they are on.
2. AT W2002 - takes the weight off the ears and distributes it on the head thru their pads on the skull instead of around the ears. The A/W1000s look to be as comfortable also!!

The ATH-A100Ti is extremely comfortable. The split headband works really well, and the artificial leather earpads are fantastic - extremely soft!

If the ATH-A100ti's have the same pads as the ATH-A9X's, I second that vote. SERIOUS comfort... it's absurd. They get a little warm after an hour's use but if you take 'em off for a couple minutes, they're chilled again .

I should add that they don't get "hot." Mine were never uncomfortably hot or anywhere near the point where I would mention them to anyone, heh.

I second that pikawel . I've been wearing the A100s for over 2 hours now and my ears are a bit warm, but nowhere near uncomfortable. Putting them on is a rather odd experience, actually, because with most headphones I'm used to feeling some pressure on the top of my head when I put them on. Not so with these. I can feel the split headbands, but the pressure from them is so small it's virtually negligible.

JahJah,

I know you didn't specifically ask for it, but IMHO none of the cans mentioned here (have tried only CD1700, CD2000, ATH-W100, DT770) isolate well sounds from outside (or to outside your phones).

So, if you need good isolation in addition to good comfort (like I do), then you need go solicit more tips

If you don't need the isolation, my recommendation (of the above phones) for comfortability goes either to Sony CD1700/2000 or ATH W100.

cheers,
Halcyon

...is a bit dark for my liking (think of the cd2ks as a "duh-m-bass" version of the hd580s). The cd3ks, OTOH, are tinny-sounding to my ears (yep, the Headroom Home amp really didn't make a good handshake with the cd3ks, making them sound rather incoherent).

The ATs really are comfortable and they work particularly well when used with Etys. First I wear the W2002s for about an hour which is sufficient to melt all the wax out of my ears and then I shove in the ol' Etys. This really extends the life of the foamies.


Just kidding, fellas.
