Headphone comfort is a very individual thing. Everyone has a different head size and shape, as well as different sensitivities and levels of sensitivity. We can point you to headphones that are generally considered to be comfortable and mention others that have garnered complaints for being uncomfortable. In my reading the HP50 has been reported as comfortable, or at least not a problem, by most who mentioned comfort. However, the only way to know for sure is to wear them yourself for a time equivalent to your longest listening session.

Yeah, that's true. What makes it uncomfortable for me is the shallowness of the ear cups. It feels like my ears are just being mashed against my head. After listening for a while and switching to my PC headset to play games my ears were screaming relief (they have deep ear pads). I haven't been able to find any replacement pads that might be bigger, but I'll keep looking while I see how my ears feel as I go.
Edit: They also don't quite cover my ear. Most of it fits in, but it's a little mushed.

i didnt get the NAD becos the music projection was kinda more left n right..
not so much forward in depth.
Is there space under the rim of the pad where u can add some foam/tissue or strings to increase the depth of the cups, away from your ears?
