I have been on a quest to upgrade my sound quality at work. I invested in a pair of Yuin PK1 earbuds and a Fiio E11. I wear headphones of some kind nearly 8 hours each day, taking them off for brief periods. I thought that the PK1s, since they were earbuds, wouldn't be noticeable. But they hurt a little after about 3 or 4 hours. Either my ears are small or these are big.
So now I'm thinking of upgrading to closed cans. But first, I want to define what "comfortable" is while I overdose on reviews. Does "comfortable" mean that you can wear it for 8 hours? The reason I ask is that maybe I already have the most comfortable solution out there and I'm wishing for something impossible - namely, to be able to wear a pair of headphones for 8 hours comfortably....
So my question to the hive is this: How many hours straight would you personally expect to be able to wear a pair of comfortable headphones before they became uncomfortable? How long of a stretch is reasonable? Is wearing a pair indefinitely too much to ask? Has anybody out there found a pair that they can wear straight for 8 hours? Thanks in advance all for future and past posts.
