B&W p7 --anything I can do to increase comfort at the top of my head? If not, Which comfy headphone sounds most similar?

Hi guys,

 

I think I have an unusually long head, because the vertex of my head (where people start going bald first) requires that headphone bands be stretched out to max.  Even then it's just a little too short.  I've found this to be the case on every pair of headphones that I own, and that's about 4.

 

The p7s are awesome, and I love them, but there's too much pressure at the vertex of my head.  There is less inexplicably less padding than the p5, and the padding that is there is less supple.

 

Any ideas on how to increase the comfort of the p7s?

 

If there are any other headphones that sound essentially identical, but are very comfortable, I'd be willing to switch to those.

I think you will have to slide headband up and driver cups down to loosen the grip on your head. B&W headphones do a good job of evening pressure on the top and sides, but can cause too much pressure somewhere with too much or too little grip.
