exactly! that was the only problem "UNCOMFORTABLE" to wear but for me not my head but my ears lol

looking for DIY Solution to make the earcups a bit deeper and softer!

I agree these are not true DJ cans. For one thing, there is no comfortable way to do single-ear monitoring. It's more of a consumer headphone, much like the M50. Mine are not terribly uncomfortable though. Clamping pressure is a bit strong so I may try stretching them out on something for a few days. Also, since they are heavy (300g) the "wing" fit system doesn't work all that well. They feel like they are pressing down (as well as in) on my ears. A different haedband system would make these much better. But...the sound quality is killer. Bass is heavy, but tight and tuned to accentuate drums and rhythms and not cause bass (guitar or synth) to sound bloated. And the mids and highs sound fantastic. And yeah, they look really nice too.

Contact the U.S. distributor. They should be able to help you find a retailer.

I think because it's kind of new there are just not a lot of online retailers listing them.

 

I did find one in Canada that ships to U.S.:

Their price is $89 CAD (about the same in USD)

The usual superlux mods won't work because this is a closed can. I have a big head and pointy ears which is quite a problem.  The wings are actually quite effective for me since the upper part of my head doesn't hurt.  However I think that the pads are of very mediocre quality

My review of these should be done in a few days (they are part of a roundup of six full-size headphones and will also include the HD661).

 

I noticed that Marcus posted his review of these a few days ago. I pretty much agree with him on most:

I can vouch for these phones, ive got the HD-668B's and these 631's.

 

The 668's have quite a shallow but wide sound, meaning that a lot of music sounds very flat through them, there's no emphasis of the bass. having said that though, they are incredibly detailed and spacious sounding. The 668's are not meant to sound good, they are mean tto sound accurate, and they do. i use them for their intended purpose which is studio work.

The 631's immediately sound very different, mids sound a little muted through them, but this is balanced out with the treble, meaning that neither is more prominent than the other, the bass however is very pronounced. the 631's sound really nice though, they are rich, deep and powerful. having said that they do sound muddy compared to the 668's very muddy actually.

They are intended for DJing though, despite what some people might say about the physical design (not an issue, i never hold 1 can to my ear anyway, i simply move the other one off my other ear onto my head), anyway this is evident in the sound, the bass is punchy and isolation is pretty good.

Initially they are extremely comfortable, but after an hour or 2 they do ache, the actual headphones do touch your ear, they are quite shallow pads. de

If you want detailed crisp work headphones, the 668 is a good choice, if you want rich deep headphones then these are a good choice.

however, if you just want to listen to music, neither of them are very good, the 668's are too boring sounding, and the 631's are too deep, lacking precise mids. although the 631's will be better suited to this job.

 

these are work headphones, and whilst i cant comment on headphones for just listening to, i have a pair strapped to my head for like 3-4 hours a day, very often! that's my take anyway, others with different tastes might disagree with me, but it depends what you want them for.

 

they do look bloody cool though :)

I just got these recently and they have become my favorite cans for listening and also monitoring while recording vocals. I use them more than the 668B.
