I have almost decided to purchase the HD 25-1 II. My only hesitation is the comfort level. I previously returned the ATH-M50s because they clamped too tight to my ears (and I also did not like the feeling of the over the ear seal that made my ears sweat). I am looking for a decent pair of headphones < $200 that do not feel like a vice grip on my ears. I like the feeling where you forget you are wearing the headphones.
However many reviews of the HD 25-1 II talk about the split head band being good for DJs because it creates a tight grip on the ears. Can this be adjusted or are the HD 25-1 II a bad choice for me? Also how would people rate the bass on these? I know they are not considered "bass cans" but do the find them pretty good for bass if I listen to a lot of classic and modern rock (Aerosmith, GNR, Nickelback, etc.) while sometimes listening to the modern stuff (Pitbull, etc.).
Any other recommendations?
