See, with the Chinese Q701, even at the furthest extension, the bottom of the earpads are actually on my ear because they no longer extend low enough! I actually have to struggle with it for a bit, and continually pull it down with a good amount of force to get it to "set" in place. The only problem is, I'm afraid the rubber bands or plastic arms may snap at some point, due to being outstretched and overextended. But what else is one to do when the Q701 is part supra-aural for big heads?
Checked my foobar last night when I'd had enough of the comfort and I had about half an hour clocked in before my head couldn't take it. Headband isn't as bad as I remember, and I think is a minor improvement over the Austrian version. BUT, the way it clamps is just awful now. My head was throbbing a good 10-15 minutes after I took them off. It puts a very high amount of pressure at the top part of the earpad above your ear. Is this a deal breaker for me? Yup. They're going back.
