I currently own both. The W3000ANV are shallower. My ears touch the cups. They don't touch the TH900.
That is actually impossible. Between your ear and the cherrywood shell / cup there is first a soft mesh that keeps the dust and dirt away from the fragile diaphragm of the driver and then there is the rest of the mechanism of the driver.
Darn, looks like the only ones that fit my ears are the LCDs and Hd800s. Guess I'll head back to my IEM world. Thanks for the replies.
For those whose ears size well exceeds the standard and fitting size of a normal ear and /or whose ears prominently stick out from one's head at an angle greater than 35-40 degrees, there is always the possibility of the corrective plastic surgery. W3000ANV are such good headphones that it is worth the trouble of going through the corrective ear surgery in order to be able to listen to them in comfort.
