Portable headphones for a girl with ear cartilage peircing

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I got my girlfriend a pair of Klipsch Image One headphones. We found out later that after a bit, it would cause pain due to a piercing in her cartilage. Pic below. I was wondering if there were any aftermarket pads to remedy this, or a similar (and similarly cheap, $30-50 lightly used) headphone that is bigger but portable. My HiFiMan headphones fit here very comfortably but they are too big and expensive for her. Thanks in advance!

Her peircing:

I'd suggest the Phillips Fidelio L1. They have large memory foam circular pads. Probably even better sounding than the Image One's. They are semi open though, but they have good noise isolation for outdoors. Only thing would be they probably leak slightly more than an entirely closed can would. 

 

Hope this helped,

If I was willing to spend that much I'd probably be looking at Logitech UE6000. I'm looking for $30-50 used.

Oh. I figured that since the Image One's were about that price... whatever. 

 

In that price range I'd suggest the Superlux HD 661's, for a new pair of cans. To see what you can get used for that price, I'll have to get back to you.

I said $30-50 in the OP. The need to be portable. No 6ft+ cords.

Hmmm... that's going to be a difficult find.

Yeah I'm having problems finding any options. Might just have to convince her to put in money for a real upgrade.
