Help~ The clamping force on my headphones (ATH-M50s) isn't as strong as I'd like.

As the title says, the clamping force on them aren't as strong as most of the reviews have pointed out. They tend to fall off my head when I tilt back slightly. Anyone have any ideas on how to tighten them or perhaps a mod? I've tried bending them in and it helped a little. Perhaps its just the size of my head?

You could try stuffing foam or scrunched-up tissues between the earpads and baffle to make the ear pads thicker and stick out more - this should increase the clamping force, although it may change the sound a little. 

First try stuffing the part of the cups that sits behind your ear first. If that's not enough, then stuff them all the way round.

 

Also sometimes you can achieve a better fit by using the headband on a smaller setting, which is often counter-intuitive at first.

I actually have my headband on the smallest setting already 3: but, I never tried stuffing it only behind the ear, I have all around but I don't think it really helped. Just behind the ear I'd imagine it would lift the back side and stop it from sliding or something like that? I'll try it, thanks!

 

Edit: Worked quite well I think.
