I've been wondering why some headphone manufacturers make headphones with round earcups vs oval earcups. All of my over-ear and on-ears have round earcups (being Beyers), yet my previous Sennheiser HD660S over-ears had oval-shaped earcups.

Oval makes more sense to me as it more naturally fits your ears. So are there sonic advantages to round earcups?

People cannot agree on anything. I'll make some popcorn and wait until the round vs. oval vs. other shape proponents sharpen their swords :D
