Hello everyone, I am new here and would very much appreciate the help of this forum. I contacted Mitchell & Johnson and they actually pointed here for help. I just got a pair of MJ2, and they sound fantastic. However, I apparently have a small head and big ears. The headband is too big for me, it never rests on my head, even on the shortest setting. I solved that with Sennheiser 650 headband cushions (held in place temporarily with bread ties ). The ear cups are too small, they are almost on-ear for me. My lobes or upper-ear hurt after 30 minutes or so. I stuffed the inner cup with cotton, expanded the cup, and they are much more comfortable now, but still make my ears hurt after an hour or so. (For size's sake, my ears are perfectly fine with HifiMan 400i, Sennheiser 598SE or Bose ae2). I also feel I am loosing a bit in sound quality with the cotton stuffing (is it just me?) Has anyone had this ear cup problem? Do you suggest any alternative ear cups? It's either that or returning them, that would be very sad. Thanks a bunch !
