I'm at the point were the left earcup sits so annoyingly on my ears, that they actually hurt the inside of my left ear if I'm playing music with bass on them. Who else has this problem?

 

I think it is because of the angled pads, because I had the same problem with the Philips X1.

 

If it wasn't for that annoying problem, they would be very good headphones.

They aren't the most comfortable headphones out there, but they manage, the pain isn't that really that bad, and my ears are really sensitive to headphones. I'd say for the price it's a good fit. Did you try the book method? If not, put some books between the cups so that they are spread more than they would be if they were on your head, and leave them overnight like that.

They're very comfortable actually when not listening to music, but when the music starts, the music in the left earpad starts to hurt my left ear, even when the volume is very low. Clamping pressure is absolutely not the issue.

 

Because the left eardpad sits very different than the right earpad. And whatever I tried, I couldn't get the left earpad to sit right.

 

I did have the exact same issue with the Philips X1, which has angled pads as well. So I guess angled pads are not doing it for me.

Philips X1 does not have angled pads they are even on every side,so don't know how you come to that conclusion...?

They look pretty angled to me.

So after some more burn in, they sound mind blowing good.

The only thing that's bothering me at this point is that the bass is very boomy on a lot of songs. Is there any mod I can do to tame the bass without sacrifising any mids or highs?
