lol i just had to, you seem pretty bitter about the earpad size. Maybe the extra .5 cm does it's job.
Maybe, lol. I think I have a small ear, not that I look other guy's ear to compare the size lol. My two nephews are in teen and barely fits on them so I don't think I am being picky here.
I also compared against HD800, D7000, HE6, TH900, LCD2, etc, including T1, ultrasone that I had previously and A900x is far from an OVER-EAR headphone.
But just me based on the other highend "OVER EAR" headphones. :)
Honestly I rather be in your shoes :)
