I wanted to ask a question to any of the taller people out there, or people with big heads. I want to get this headphone but would like to know what the fit is for people with large ears/heads. I have a problem with my ear lobes and top parts of my ears hurting after a very short listening session with most headphones like the ATH-M50. The only headphone that I've ever found comfortable is the Sony MDR-XB700 but the sound isn't that good on it.
I'm 6'4" if that helps at all.
I have long ears as well/big head and I know what you mean with the M50s.
Using the new Alpha Pads, I have no issues with pain on the ear. There is a good deal of space and depth.
They had just a little too much clamp for my huge/sensitive dome, but a quick and very easy headband stretch fixed that right up.
Side note, you head size is not directly proportional to your height.
