Anyone that has tried it on ... how is the fit on a physically large head?

Love the sound of my Focal spirit one. But verges on impossible to wear, and result is an over stressed broken headband.

Hope to hear confirmation Focal took larger heads into account with this. Thanx.

No need to post in two threads my friend. I have a huge head and there is plenty of room. The build is exquisite

I know these are very open headphones, but do these leak much sound? Thinking about using them as a portable if isolation is ok. The Focal website says they're designed for "noisy environments ", whatever that means.

I believe noise leak is less than hd600. I can hear conversation of other people talking but have to be around 3 ft or closer. This is during SF meets.
