Does anyone here listen to their HD-800's while laying down with your head on a pillow of some sort?
Based on photos of the headphones, the cables exit the earcaps somewhat to the rear of the "headband centerline", and I figure this might indicate that there would be "clearance problems" with the cables?
There are a few reasons for my asking:
* It's not *just* that I'm lazy and thus prefer a horizontal position but more a question of some (hopefully semi-temporary) health issues making me tired and a bit weak.
* The closest store that has the HD-800 up for testing is a bit of a drive away, so if the consensus is that the HD-800 is unusable while laying down, I will probably not even try them.
* My current over-ear headphones (HD-540's) work well enough with a suitably folded pillow, but the cable exit points are "centered" to the headband on those.
