The first thing I need to say, at the risk of offending everyone, is that I am not an audiophile and sound quality is not my top concern (not saying I can't appreciate it, it's just not the reason for this post.) I mostly use my headphones connected to my laptop to listen to recorded lectures, youtube videos, and mp3s, and sometimes I just put them on without anything playing through them, just to block out the noise around me. I have incredibly sensitive ears, and they might be a bit large as well. I'm looking for comfortable headphones that won't have me writhing in pain after an hour of use.
I've read many of the posts here and it's clear that y'all know your stuff, so I'd love to hear what you all consider the most comfortable headphones, without considering any other qualities. A few things I've noticed is that many people love the HD800s and the DT770s. The HD800s are way out of my price range (so I guess I am considering the price factor) and the DT770s confuse the heck out of me because of all the different resistances. I won't be using an amp, so it seems like they might be overkill for my purposes. Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
