post #11521 of 19179
No other feature of headphone pads really matters to me in comfort besides touching the ear. I'm sure many of you know what I mean, that sore feeling on the ear after the pads have been pressing on it for a while. Wondering if any HP in the lower price ranges have similar pad size, not necessarily more comfortable, just bearable. The LCD2, even with the softer "pillow" like ear pads still hurt after a few hours. The HD700 pads don't touch the ear? They look much smaller.

They don't touch my ear.  I'm a 6 foot 160 pound size.

Or around the ear type like LCD, HD800, etc. Not sure why you feel your lcd2 pad is pressing against your ears. I guess I can imagine it might if you have bigger than avg ears. Then it becomes a matter for finding headphone with big enough cups and narrow paddings so the "hole" in the middle is big enough to accommodate your ears. And hd800 is really the only one I can think of (even hd700 may be too small for you!?)

Maybe Fostex TH600?

They cost less than the HD800, and on my average size ear, the cups don't touch my ear lobes.

Just wondering if anyone has found a headphone that accomplishes the same thing.  

Hey mr. King Crimson(great avatar) sadly I have not found anything helpful to your question cause the 800's are by far and away the most streamlined and focused pair of headphones for comfort and long listening. Best cans on the planet for me. However the AUDEZE LCD's I think can match the HD 800's comfort. They look pretty heavenly and less space-aged than the HD 800's. smily_headphones1.gif

The weight and the clamp will be the deal breaker

Yeah, I am not a huge fan of the LCD's, LCD-x was better than the rest but not up to HD800 standards IMHO,  LCD-3 only got better when paired with the ragnarok, which is not available for the masses yet.  As far comfort alone, the LCD's are a few steps behind the HD800's, again IMO.

They are for the laid back listing type. I cannot do it for long I keep thinking what I am missing.
I took the hd800 on my vaca to NC
The LCD 3 are home in the case

You heard the LCD-3 (C) or (F) with the Ragnarok?  What did you think?
