Thanks, I'll let time solve the problem.

Bingo...plus a little headband stretching helps too.

Thanks for the responses though.

Yes, all these responses I agree with. A little time, a little headband bending, and the glasses thing....well, I don't have a solution, I just don't wear them mostly while listening and close my eyes.

Overall more comfortable than the LCD-2 to begin with.

I wear glasses and no problem with fit issues. Ocassionly if I remove them to fast like to answer a phone call my glasses could get caught up.

I don't find them too bad post stretch but before... ouchies.  I literally use a dining room chair to stretch mine out every couple of weeks.  The top of the chair is and even curve, I plop the LCD-3 on it top down, hold the inside where the metal band ends and pull down to the chair.  Looks bad but totally harmless.  Truth be told, I'd love to find something with a deeper curve because it's still a little too much pressure.  On my last pair, the front of the pads compressed right to the wood.  At least with this method, the front is only a little crushed.  Top of the head, not much you can do there.

If not, then your only chance would be to put a WTB ad out there and see if early LCD-2 users who upgraded from the foam headband to leather would be willing to part with them.

Audeze should put them back into production IMO. Yes, it looks ugly and was complained about a lot early on, but they're a much more comfortable option for many LCD-2/3 users out there.

I still have a pair of foam-headband LCD2.2s. I didn't use them that much because I got my LCD3s right afterwards.

It is a very comfortable headband.

The rev.1 foam headband is definitely superior to the leather wrapped headbands on the rev.2 and LCD3's in the comfort aspect. Not a good looker though.

HD800 or the Stax.

Servantsaber, maybe you need longer metal rod so the headband don't have to push too hard on the skull?
I have big head, the hadband is pressing hard, even the metal rod I extend to the max.

I think you need 2 headphones.
For mixing maybe something 'flattish' like K702 and for your audiophilic 'business' you are free to chose your own coloring smily_headphones1.gif I mean a slight emphasize to a particular qualities.
HD800 is flat, but I guess a little to expensive for production work?

I would sell my foam-headband LCD2.2s for $850 + shipping.
