@Tangster: Mine's in competition with my Grado sr60i's for most uncomfortable pair. Perhaps the most damning for it is the thing's weight - machined metal housing and coiled cable. It's sturdy, but damn does it feel like putting on a helmet. It's finally winter here so pads become a feature since my room is like an ice box all year round :V
Also, update, the big bass seems to have gone away. I dunno if I did anything or it was the things finally breaking themselves in which would be weird, since I have been using them nonstop since I bought them until about a month ago. With the E17 I get a more laid back sound rather than the sparkle I get with the E11's. I'm thinking of getting the E9 to complete my desktop setup but I'm not sure I have the right kind of headphones to benefit from it. The internal amp in the E17's seem to be more than enough for the DJ 100's. Unfortunately the lo-bypass works only for the E9 so no using it as just a DAC and adding in the E11.
Mine don't weight much compared to a lot of my cans. Inbetween my KRK 8400 and ATH A700X. Much lighter than the Shure SRH840 or T50RP. Stretching the headband out helped a bit, but I think the earpads are just abominable and need a replacement. I've felt better pads on the £12 Sennheiser HD201s. If I can't make them comfy then I'll sell them. I find them quite outclassed by most of my headphones.
