    New HD 598s are hurting my head. What should I do?

    Hi   I've been using the HD 598s for five days now.  The longer I use them, the more they seem to hurt my head. The problems seem to be a combination of the clamping force and the hardness of the padding. I don't have a big head; in fact, it's a bit on the small size. These past couple days...

    A problem of limited amps...

    I recently bought a pair of K702s with a cable upgrade for $250 and am loving them but I've been reluctant to plug them into my Schiit Valhalla before I did some research (hopefully I'll get some answers here).   I understand that the K702 is quite power hungry although at only 62ohms but...

    Burson and AKG K702 or K701 --your impressions, please?

    Right now, I am powering my well-broken-in K702s with a Headroom MicroAmp. I'm pretty satisfied with the sound (but the bass extension seems limited) and the comfort of the headphones, which I use only for classical music. I've read some good reviews of the Burson amp. If you have heard the K702...
