What is the most comfortable headphones you've worn?

post #1 of 159
Thread Starter 

I know the AKG 701/702 and the Sennheiser HD 800, HD 650, HD 600, HD 598 are suppose to be very comfortable, but is there a stand out? I would suggest the AKG 701 as a stand out, but they are the only expensive headphones I've used. What is/are the most comfortable pair of headphones you have ever worn?

The D2000/5000/7000 are crazy comfortable.

Beyers DT/T lines are also crazy comfortable.


Very best,

Most has been AD700, followed by Denon D2000.  Beyers follow.

Grado GS1000.

I haven't worn very many headphones, but the Stax Lambda is the most comfortable I've had yet, even outdoing Audio-Technica.


Pads could be a bit better, but taping bits of microfiber cloth over the contact areas helps a lot. Maybe getting some genuine leather pads of the sort found on the SR-404 Limited and SR-507 would also help. (If only Stax had velour pads...)

i find my hifimans more comfortable than both denons i've owned, but i do have a larger than average head, so maybe it's that? also have a strong neck so i don't really notice the weight. Headband in particular is nice, denons would hurt the top of my head after a couple hours.

Sony XB-Series, I do hope them to come out with some more serious headphones in that design

btw k701 was very uncomfortable to me..

The leather earpads and the weight distribution is just unrivaled.

The k601 is the most comfortable I've tried. The DT880 is a close second.
