Fresh out of the box I loved these things, everything was right about them, comfort was fine and they rested very lightly on the ears. Headband isn't that bad I thought...hours later I start getting a headache which gets worse and worse. Eventually I decide to call it a day and go to sleep.
Next day I'm better again and put the headphones on again, a few hours later, headache again. No, it can't be the headband.
Third day in a row? Ok I need to do something about this, these things sound too good to give up.
I remember an old thread where someone cut off the bumps (this one DOES have 8 by the way) but no way am I going to do that...better to find a way to fill in the gaps than cut out the bumps.
My first attempt has given a significant increase to comfort, and while it itself isn't specifically filling in gaps it does soften the feeling of the bumps on one's head and hopefully this way I won't be plagued by chronic headaches...
If there are any tips fellow 70x users have, I will gladly take them, if you have pictures, even better.
Here is the wool pad mod I am currently sporting (thinking of doubling up when I can find some more):
