Quoting myself... I received today the suspension strap from our fellow Head-Fier. First impressions are excellent. The bottom part that touches the head has a suede feel, different from the leather on top. The rings are plain elastic hair bands. It looks solidly built. Putting it on, it's certainly more comfortable than my headband and it looks like my headaches will be now avoided. Bear in mind that I just avoided purchasing the extended yokes as before putting the strap on, I was using the headphones just one click before being fully extended. Now they have to be fully extended. They fit in the box just fine. If you are thinking about purchasing the carbon fiber headband and you don't care about the looks, look no further.
