i'll admit it's gotten a touch more comfortable. Wilco's Being There sounded quite pristine on it during my break today (guitars actually had plenty of bite despite what i've been led to believe about these headphones). i tried bending the cups inward/pinching the top sort of to make it conform to my head more and the cups to reach down farther but it's still a pretty tight fit even on the largest setting. i'm guessing bending them flat/outwards would only help relieve the clamping force? cause i don't think that's the problem; just my head's too "long". i think its slowly starting to fit better though. still wish it extended a little bigger in the first place. isolation is a little better? probably just imagining things.
i'll keep on trucking for a little while longer but if it doesn't get better than it is i may bid them adieu.
