Now back on the m-100. I was not saying they're comfortable or not. I was simply pointing out that there are several ways in which some people find them uncomfortable so that if someone feels they're more susceptible to one than another or whatever, they might get a better idea of how the headphones are stock and what one might be able to expect with the xl pads.
There is a very large gap between saying these are the most comfy headphones man ever made and saying that they are so bad that people should avoid buying them altogether.
And yes, to whoever it was, I am lucky enough to have tried them on before buying. I agree that a 15 minute session is not sufficient to really get how a pair of cans will feel after 3 hours, but we all work with what's possible and extrapolate with the care and caution required by the situation. For example I cannot home demo the ps1000 and thought they felt strange at the shop so I didn't buy them. I may have turned down sonic nirvana, but that was my choice. Had I purchased and had fit issues, I'd have to ebay them. Such is life, and I assume it's the same for everybody. Back ot I think we'ev done enough to state that some have/had fit issues (incl. Myself) so people can pick up on this and make up their own minds. I see no mileage in repeating it or making it unrealistically severe.
I get that some people have problems with the fit which makes them dislike the m100. What I don't get is why said people want everyone else to find them uncomfortable as well.
Edit 1: spelling
Edit 2: Anakchan gave me the fear. (Lol I posted before reading his, sorry.)
