I bent the crap out of the ones I tried and the seal actually became worse. I had to bend the back to their original shape and things got a little better. I looked at them an thought that if could put some more padding on the headband so the ear pads would sit slightly higher on my head then the seal would improve.
But then I though...meh, it ain't worth all the hassle.
My head is not exactly small either. Before the K550, I had not tried one headphone that would fit at it's lowest setting - I always have to adjust the headband by three or four notches. The fit is not over-exxagerated.
The K550 is what you get when design engineers go to work stoned...or when your test subject is André the Giant.
Yes, I thought I have a larger than average head as well. After trying on the K550, I felt like Bettlejuice (his character had a shrunken head in case the reference too old or obscure).
