Headphones not for everyone?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I recently bought some vmoda  headphones and they hurt my ears really bad. I think its because they fold my ears back but idk. Will i get used to it soon? or should i just not go with them.

Are they the Crossfade LPs? They clamp pretty hard compared to many other headphones.

Certain headphones clamp extra hard. I would imagine this to be true for almost all outdoor headphones.

What headphones have you tried?

You may want to consider moving up into something that goes around the ear, rather than resting on the ear.  If you're willing to experiment a bit, you're sure to find some that are comfortable for you.

I thought those crossfades are considered ones that go around ur ear

So are your ears pressed against the driver?  Do you wear glasses?

Probably the cartilage in his ears are finicky

 

I took a bad hit in my right ear, during a boxing fight and mine hurt for a while with my V6

 

Best solution:

GO Sennheiser

 

Most around Senn cans go around your ear with little to no touch to them. HD598, 558, 5xx models I presume

I have HD438s. Relatively cheap, and very comfortable.

If you're using the headphones for just around-the-house use, then there's a good bit out there from the likes of Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic which you'll find extremely comfortable.

Some headphones are really comfortable out of the box, while some take time to get used to.

As you spend more time with your headphones, you'll get used to the pain.

But sometimes the pain just doesn't go away, like in the case of my Audio Technica Onto.

 

I say try them one for a bit more, if it's still very painful consider returning them, unless you really

like the sound they give.
