Although I can wear the Koss portapros for longer than a hour, they still hurt my ears nonetheless.
I have a somewhat large head, I wear 7 5/8 sized hats. Sometimes even extra-large hats don't fit me. My ears stick out a lot and they are quite long. In most cases with headphones, irritation of the ears is the main culprit, not the size.
After reading many reviews here , I decided to try the HD 598. My head size is not an issue here. Unfortunately, my ears feel cramped and get hot & irritated very quickly. I'm trying to get past the discomfort as of right now. Probably will end up returning them because I hate to settle. They do sound amazing while playing witcher 2 though.
I intend to use the headphones mainly for gaming(non-competitive). I also listen to all music genres, powerful bass is not necessary for me. Most importantly, it's gotta be comfy.
Since my paid internship is starting soon, I am willing to try more expensive options and would love to hear what you guys think.
