I never had a chance to try the 700s.

Not surprised, greatest headphone no one bought due to it's initial "2nd best" pricing being so close to hd800 and fact that it's very amp-sensitive much like hd800.

The ones I own that I can wear for ages and ages without any fatigue are the Sennheiser HD700, Beyerdynamic Amiron Home, and AKG K812. Most others are comfortable up to a point and then I’m like, “get these things off me now!”

Rotate through different types of headphones throughout day? Your mdr f1, then another headphone with a different style of “headband” like koss’ KDE250, then earbuds, then a bone conductor headphone, then Tesla brain implant?

The mdr-ma900 was pretty decent. Very thin headband and lightweight.

Full size cans I have here right now.. Sony xm3. OK shape size, do get sweaty after 2-3 hours. The headband presses a bit on the top of my head and I have to position it just right
Beyerdynamic DT770 pro. There's a reason you see these a lot in radio studios. They're insanely comfortable. Hours on end, no problem!

I had the HD700 for some time and they were comfortable. The pads wore out and my wife thought they was no good and tossed them lol. Now I use HD600s very comfortable, and MDR1AM2 also comfortable. Both can be worn 4 plus hours.

Yes! Thats how the game is done. Pain on one, and switch to another to get pain in another area, and so forth. A balanced marathon of little annoyances and aches from each one :p Thats just part of the game.
