Thanks for the advice. I am goin to go ahead and listen to them for a few more days before I do anything. After letting them run for about 10 hours they already sound a bit better.
Its too bad there is nothing that can be done about the sound leakage. Not that it should matter much for me.
They don't really leak sound that much (at least in my experience). They do a bit because they have velour earpads instead of pleather or leather. The velour actually makes them easier to wear for longer (velour can breathe, so it doesn't get hot in the earpads).
Also, be sure to keep the case and extra earpads. The extra earpads are great for listening for a long time. The earpads over a few hours can flatten a bit. If you switch them out with the new ones, they're more comfortable and cool (like the other side of the pillow). And by the time the spares compress, the originals have uncompressed. :)
