I've been using the HD 598s for five days now. The longer I use them, the more they seem to hurt my head. The problems seem to be a combination of the clamping force and the hardness of the padding. I don't have a big head; in fact, it's a bit on the small size. These past couple days, I've had to switch back to my old HD 515s, which I've never had an issue with. Should I expect the HD 598s to break in over time and become comfortable? Right now, I can confidently say they're unwearable due to the amount of discomfort they cause. Do I need to look for a different pair of headphones?
