So I'm looking to make my entry to high end audio for headphones, as I've already done some with IEM's. I have done some researching and very minor self testing and am fixed on the bowers and wilkins P5. Now the question comes to getting the P5's, an on ear pair,which sounded great to me, or digging out my wallet for the P7's, an over ear and supposedly better sounding pair which I haven't personally tried. Now the reason I ask is because I currently own some rather unflattering skullcandy aviators which provide great comfort, but my larger ears which stick out from my head causes discomfort with these. The very outer rim of my ears press on the inside of the ear cups (not the ear pads) and cause them to get sore in about an hour. I'm wondering if anyone else can relate to this issue and can tell me how they feel about long term comfort of on ear headphones and the P5's vs over ears and whether or not anyone can testify for the P7's.
