Both pads are velour so comfort should be similar but I don't have both so I can't say for sure. I have the hpt990s, I found the coiled cable annoying and lopped it off shortly. modded it for a detachable cable. the headphones do run small, I wear a 7 1/2 cap and I'm about halfway up the forks. Most other headphones, I barely extend them at all, so bigger heads will have issues.
Thanks for the reply MrEleventy. I found a 7 1/2 hat which is actually a little big for me so these should fit fine, do the ear pads cover your ears completely?
Could anyone who has the 2050's comment on the size and if the ear cups cover your ears completely. I assume the 2050/990's are the same size but I'm learning toward the 2050's because I don't want to deal with the coiled cable.
One more thing I forgot to ask in my last post was about durability. I think claus said he had the 2050 for over 2 years and they still worked fine if I remember correctly. Has anyone had any durability issues with the 2050/990's? I know people said they were impressed with the build quality but after having them for a little bit anyone have any issues? Thanks for the help.
