How to (?) : Adjust clamp tension on Beyerdynamic DT770 pro headphones

I have seen people saying that you can do this. Do you  need to undo the star shaped screws connecting it to the headband and alter the angle or is it just not possible?

I think bending the headband works well, but it comes with risks.  Perhaps try a thick rubber band to get the clamping force you are after.

Well it's never dangerous to bend the headband by stretching it over some box or books or whatever you have over the night with a little wider gap than your head (this is just the same as putting them on your head, then you also stretch them wider than when they're ON the head). Over time it'll loosen up, then it depends on the headphone's headband and how wide gap you use and how many nights what the result will be but usually 1 - 3 nights is enough to notice a difference for most headphones.

 

Stretching my AKG K518 DJ over a computer case for 2 nights made those headphones wearable from only 20 mins use out of box when quite intense pain started to build up to 1½ ~ 2 hrs of possible use.

Any reason for not just getting a set of premiums instead? I tried the 770 pros at a guitar center and I couldn't stand them, but my 880 premiums I can wear for 4-5 hrs easily.

The 770 pros have a different sound, unlike the 880s which are the same as the premium except the clamp tension. They aren't too bad for me, I just think they would be more comfortable if most of the weight was of the headband and not the earcups.
