How do you folks avoid headphone hair? If I have long hair, then I get a nice big dent in my head. If I have it cut fairly short, then I get an amusing (to others) cowlick.

It's the worst with my 7506s, and the insane clamping they do. My SR-125s still cause this phenomenon, however.

i find that if i don't use headphones right after i take a shower, i'm okay. i think it has a lot to do with taking a shower and your hair is still wet, then going to bed with headphones on (at least, that's what i do sometimes) or just letting them sit there with damp hair seems to bend them.

it only took once of my gf noticing and making fun of me before i stopped such things from happening.

I gotta go with Skippy on this one, hats are the way to go when the old headphone hair is acting up again. Second option is just stay home and listen to more music. Last option, shower BEFORE leaving to remove any and all traces.

May you grow ear hair


If you have curly hair, the flattening can be pretty noticible. In that case, I recommend you blow dry your hair.

I fixed that by giving my gf a pair of decent headphones, now we can both point at each other and go "ha-ha!"

I fixed this problem by not caring what my hair looks like.

I shaved my head. Not necessarily for this reason...but I keep it VERY short so there are no indents when I listen at work. Ety's are great, but when one wears the uber-heavy HP-1000's...there is no doubt...you will likely get a head dent as well.
