A fairly deep ridge formed on the top part of my head where the headband rests.
My doctor told me it was due to the the pressure exerted on my skull from the headphones.
I have not worn them for around 3 days now and thankfully my head is feeling a little better.
I would also like to add this post is in no way directed at ALO, im merely giving you my experience with these cans.
Pardon my question, but do you happen to own a large head?
I've only had about ~1 hour worth of listening with any Ultrasone headphone in my life and it was with the 780's a month and a half ago. It didn't give much clamping force in my opinion: secure enough for me to bob my head. If you ask me, I already have a permanent ridge from wearing glasses.
For you, is the clamping force comparable to say, swimming goggles clamping force to the eye ridges?
