Do you have any suggestions.  I have been diagnosed with chronic insomnia and almost killed myself driving to work after not sleeping enough for 2 days. I even failed at two sleep labs with them saying you need to go home at 1am since I was a lost cause.  The one thing that helps me fall asleep is the isochronic/binaural tones which relax me so am seeking the afformentioned to use with them.  I looked into the SleepPhones below but reviews said they had quality issues.  Looking forward to any expertise and advice you can give as my life is falling apart.  Most appreciative..  

id reccemend starting a new thread on this maybe instead of asking it here, just so you might get more answers, 

 

This is a specialized recommendation request. A new thread seems ideal.

Sennheiser HD 800. I've never worn headphones that are so comfortable. Beyers aren't even close (and they are very known for comfort). HD 800 ends all these threads. :D

My new favorite for comfort is fostex t50's with Stax o2 pads.

T50s or T50RPs? The T50 is a rare vintage can...

Then say that? Lol.

 

Also I'd have to disagree about the T50RP's comfort: Even the stock pads are very soft and comfy but the headband is completely unpadded and feels like something's jabbing into the top of my head after about 20 minutes. The T50RP is just too heavy to have a metal headband with no padding. I'm not sure why Fostex would do that.

I have to put in vote for the HD650's.  I find them to be most comfortable.  Second runner up for me dt770's.

How about the ATH-AD2000?  The wings on my head feels pretty good.

I have some ATH-a700's with the wings.  They are comfortable but for me they always feel like they could fall off to easily.

Well, mostly because it's a $75 hp. For less than $3 I added a simple mod with a cut strip of mouse pad and I have not felt the headband again.

Actually the MSRP on them is $200... and even though they don't sell for that it does mean that they were supposed to at one point.

 

Plus they're meant for recording/studio use, and comfort is a must in that department..

The most comfortable I've owned have been the ATH-AD700 for circumaural, and HD238 for supra-aural, definitely in the "forgot you're wearing it" category.  I haven't had or tried a lot of these other circumaural models though.

Of the ones I owned the DT770 Pro, Sony XB series, and Denon AH-D1100 were all very comfortable to me. The Beyer for it's velour pads, the Sony for its pillow like pads, and the Denon because they're so light.
