I need some advice to replace the my first pair of closed headphones that I just bought. After reading these forums for hours, I decided to try my luck with Shure SRH440. I wasn't blown away with the sound by the way, but I can only compare them to my Sennheiser HD238, which are really good I think.
Anyway, my problem is the discomfort of the Shure's headband. It's really heavy and hurts my head after some listening. I don't think stretching them helps either. I don't have a big head so I think it really has to do with the lack of padding there. I've already decided to return these, but I'm not sure what I can get instead. I read here that M50's are by far the most favored headphones, but they are a bit expensive for me, and from the photos I've seen, the headband looks very similar. Can anyone recommend me a pair that is comfortable to wear and is good for listening to mostly classical, vocals, jazz, etc. type music?
