@eliwankenobi - I've noticed that they curiously only allowed rotation of the pads in one direction and that is towards one's nose when wearing them. I think it would've been more helpful if it were able to rotate the other way towards the back of one's head since in general our head shape is slightly tapered as it goes towards the back of the head.
Try this, wear it reversed with R on your left ear and then play around with the angle of the pads and its positioning. Of course this isn't ideal since the channels are now reversed but at least see if that improves comfort any.
Thanks for the reply and suggestion. But more than the rotation of the cups, is the fit of the headband on the top of my head. I feel more pressure at the very top and makes it feel uncomfortable. Maybe If I had a sqaure shaped head (maybe Paul Barton's is like that?), the headband would distribute the weight better. Not that it was a heavy headphone, but since it was not well distributed, it was not a set and forget sort of thing. I always was trying to adjust them, then the cups rotation would not help in getting a good seal. The lower rear part of the cups would not seat well. In the end...I think my head was not very compatible with the design of this HP. Then Add to that that the headband makes you look ridiculous when wearing it, and for me it was like, none of this should not happen on a $300 headphone. So it may not be the headphone for me, but in spite of all that, it sounded awesome!
