Question about the 558s.   Are you supposed to turn the cable right or left to lock it properly?  Don't want to damage it just by switching cables occasionally

So my friend got the HD518, he liked the sound however he can`t wear it for more than 1 hour, he says the pressure on his head is too strong.

He has already done the "pillow technique" to try to make them more relaxed but the clamping force is still quite strong.

There`s any other things that can be done?

I've had that problem with my 558, but it has improved. The tops of the pads have deformed to better conform to my head. Also, I found that adjusting the cup rotation so that the top is furthest in before putting them on reduces the clamp. The part of the cup closest to the headband should be more inward so the cups are close to parallel when putting on the headphone.

Try extending the earcups down to a bigger size, that will improve the clamp and also the earcups will sit more center around the ear also improving soundstage (since i notice people tend to put the headphones on at too small a size, like my friend who has a bigger head than me by 2-3 sizes puts my pair on at a smaller setting, even Markiplier puts them on at almost the smallest size)

Extending the earcups will put more pressure on the ears from my experience, and reduce pressure on the top of the head.

I found that extending it made clamping a bit tighter (not by much though). I've actually slowly starting to extend it out and found it to be a lot more comfortable in general. I used to get really bad headaches but it has gotten way better now.
