How many hours straight can you wear a "comfortable" set of headphones? - Page 4

post #46 of 133

I personally find a light pair of Grado's the comfiest, even more so than ad700 or ad900x.  Currently using some custom magnums.

For me it is not how long you can wear it, as a whole day is rather easy to do so. It is about how unwilling when you want to take the headphones off and turn off the music.

Really?

Max I can keep on a iem or a headphone is 30min without having to readjust or rest.

I completely forget about my HD800s whenever I have them on. Theyre probably the most comfortable headphones I have worn in my life. Very anti-perspiring and cozy.

I can wear my AKG Q701 the whole day if I would like to. By far the most comfortable headphones I had so far.

I've trained my neck to withstand 10 hours of abuse from my LCD2's. But hey mine are modded to :)

Yeah about extra 50 - 80grams on the back end of the transducer itself. Removed wool felt, dampened sides, replaced wire, pattern port modded the opening strips revealing the back end of the planar driver, dampened grill using something I've learnt from building speakers in the past to reduce the resonance from the backwaves of the inside. I do plan on opening up the driver itself but have since reading Tyll doing something similar to his Hifiman's he borked the driver's, so I'm a bit afraid to have something similar happening. Other than that, my LCD2's sound fairly unique and different compared to stock and the rev.2's.

DT880's, T1's, ATH-1000's - all day long as long as it's not over 35 degrees celcius as otherwise they just get too sweaty and uncomfortable. LCD-2 are a different matter though, for me at least they just start to dig in a little bit after a while and I've got to give them a break after 90 mins or so.

Some headphones I own, or owned, over the past year...

 

Beyer T1s - hours and hours

AKG Q702 - hours and hours

Sennheiser 518 - 1.5 hr max...became overheated and sweaty

Grado SR80 - hours and hours

Grado PS500 - 4-6hr

Grado GS1k - hours and hours

JVC Nanotubes - 4-6hr

Beyer 1350 - 2-3hr, but it's totally worth it!

Any IEMs - 2hr max

 

The T1s are just like plush, high end comfort on my ears...I always choose them at home for long sessions.

I can wear my HD650's all day with zero problems!! Super laid back with comfy pads equals all day comfort


Thanks,

Beyers all day long. Grados maybe an hour or two, but the longer I wear them the more breathers I need to take and eventually my ears just hurt. IEMs are the most comfortable for me. I can wear them for long as I want without any discomfort.

Its directly proportional to the amount of beers drank while listening, especially when using Grados. HD800's, hour after hour no probs.

I can wear the Sony MDR- 1Rs for 6 hours+
post #60 of 133

If I couldn't wear them all day I wouldn't own them. I can wear my Grado SR225i and my Sennheiser HD-650 for as long as I care to listen to music I also have an old pair of HD580's I use from time to time and even though they are in need of some new ear pads, they are still very comfortable.
