DT880 (non-pro version) , HD598 and maybe AKG K612.

The DT990 is even better, they have softer foam in their pads.

Personally, AKG K7XX and possibly HD600, as the MA900 starts bothering me if I try and listen to them for longer periods of time. While there's almost no clamp or weight, it's in just the right/wrong place for me.

Yeah, comfort is such a subjective thing. No one headphone is comfortable for all, IMO. Similarly I love the sound of 600 series but they line up just wrong on my face/jaw.

I love how weightless they feel on your head and I how beautifully modded the cable was done.

Nice!

What I wish they would include if they ever plan on making a direct successor to these is a detachable cable... As its surely the most fail-prone point of this headphone (rest if actually quite durable although it feels weightless and cheap in hand).

I'm still looking for a pair hopefully around $140 or less shipped to conus.

Does the cable affect the comfort? I mean the cable looks heavy :D

Since I purchased them this way I can't really say how it compares to stock.

Got AKG550 and MA900, dunno how to compare them very detailed, i like 550 for non-boomy non-harsh bass while listening metal, so i can listen to music for countless hours without headache, 900 for huge soundstage, airy feel in music, using both with Creative EC1 USB and Asus D2 PCI cards. 900 is absolutely great in fps games with its huge soundstage, wow.. If only i could compare them better, soon SHP9500 coming to my place, wonder if i was better at comparing would it be useful to compare 550 vs 900 down further..
