On Ear versus Over Ear comfort? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

It is a cup, an angled and very deep cup.

 

The two wire bands can't really be bent and wouldn't need to be anyway. The Q701 has a self adjusting leather headband with elastic bands to keep tension. It should provide the perfect fit for pretty much any head size.

Also...the two wire band looks easy to bend if need be.  Do you know if it can be tweaked?

Thanks again.

Lot of people complain for the bumps on the headband of the k701 (and I  guess same for q701),

they say they are painful, especially if you have some baldness.

Both beyer and senn headphones are known to be comfy.

If you were unsuccessful with the beyer , you might try the senns.

The bumps don't bother me anymore. They bothered me for about the first week or so, but either I got used to it or the leather softened up.

My $0.02.

I actually found the HE400/HE500 very uncomfortable. They are extremely heavy (heavier than the LCD-2!), and the pads are stiff and don't encircle the ear fully.
