That's quite concerning. Are the comfort issues that bad?They're $400 for you but for me they are costing me $500 used! at this price I want ultimate comfort and even the talk of modding is ridiculous. Comfort is a big issue for me as I haven't tried a headphone I can leave up for up to an hour without it irritating me. Gaming with it would be cool as well.
I had these last year and loved them but sold them due to comfort issues. Sold them here in the forums. I wonder how many Head-Fiers my old pair has been through. Maybe quite a few
Has anyone tried W5000 pads on them? Are there any pads for them that don't go flat? I didn't like having to do the pad mod on a $400 headphone.
If I loved the W5000, I wonder if i'd like the W1000X..probably not. I still haven't tried the AD900. It seems that the ATH-AD2000's wing system worked well for me..except for the pads.
BTW anyone else love them for gaming? They're an old favorite for gaming. I miss them for that reason alone. I'd buy them again if I could find pads that didn't go flat and were not $100...
SA3000 sounded similar in gaming for some reason. Guess it's just the mids..
