DT 770's Very Uncomfortable

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I've had a pair of Beyer DT770's for about a month now.  They sound excellent, but wearing them for more than an hour makes the top of my head hurt.  No matter how I adjust the headband, it just doesn't help.  Is there anything I can do to make them more comfortable, like getting a different headband or something?

Beyers are among the most comfortable headphones out there. You could try bending the headband, raising the clamping force against your ears or buy this cushion. Worth the investment.

How would I increase the clamping force against my ears?

Try putting a few Books between them for a night, or a few Days.

 

Do you have the Pro or the Edition version? The last one has less force against your ears, and sits "softer".

Pro, and it's not force against my ears.  The area of pain is at the headband, it just hurts at whatever part of my head it was sitting on.

Heya,

 

Inexpensive fix that works on virtually all headphones headbands. I use them on all my headphones.

 

Very best,

These are different from the ones that come with DT 770's?

Heya,

 

Correct. They're generic. But the headband works great. I use these on my Hifimans, Denons and Beyers. Fits them all just fine. Snaps on. Snaps off. Adds a whole new set of padding. Very comfortable. Takes pin point pressure off your scalp.

 

Very best,

Huh, the Beyers are supposed to be extremely comfortable. I love my DT770s. You could try the generic headband, I really enjoy those on not so comfortable headphones.

Thanks, I'll give them a try when I can.
