Yep. I bought a pair of P5's when they where launched, and although I enjoyed their sound, I could never wear them for more than 30 minutes straight, as they would start hurting my ears due to the clamping force. After some time I sold them... Maybe these will be more confortable, keeping the same type of sound. I'll wait and see...
You will probably be disappointed to hear that according to a site that had a review of these headphones they are less comfortable than the P5's (unfortunately I don't remember where I saw this at).
I read that somewhere too, although I'm not putting too much stock in it until more reviews surface. After all, the comfort of the P5s seemed to be a pretty subjective thing. Some people rave that they're the most comfortable headphones they've ever worn, others that the clamping force becomes excruciating after a while. I'm definitely in the latter bracket.
I'm not in either one of those camps haha I definitely don't think that they are comfortable but I also don't think they have enough clamping force because they are unstable on my head.
As usual, that's a very subjective matter. For me, the P5's were unconmfortable after a bit, and I have friends who say they're the most comfortable headphones they own, and they can wear them for hours straight. I guess I have a large head. My bad...
