Retract the belts a notch or two then. Retracting makes it so that the upper part of the cushions tilt more inward than the lower part.

 

That and do the stretching of the headband more drastically. It will increase the comfort level one way or the other.

How exactly do u put the electrical tape inside the pads?

What happens if you stretch them too far? Anyway to get MORE clamp back?

Did you overstretch? Lol. That's why I said a few seconds at a time, stretching just a little further more and more. I've done it to 3 M50s, and all three were perfect in clamp.

Is the m50 box a good width to stretch the m50 with?

Thank OP. This worked for me, and for anyone unsure about this, it appears to be the official method from AT for ATH-PRO700MK2 phones http://eu.audio-technica.com/en/support/questions/question.asp?id=219
