I'm in love with my HD800,their detail, subtle sound, the timbre they produce...
- but they are hurting my ears!!!!!!! - sonically, that is - they are very comortable.
The treble and high mids feel like they are penetrating my eardrums.
And I'm not playing very loud.
Changing to HD650 - same volume - no problem. Even tried the "put some cotton inside the earcup" easy mod by (JazZ), but it doesn't seem to help enough.. And I don't really like to spend even more money on a aftermarket cable if the problem will persist.
Anyone with similar experiences?
