Nope the clamping force is perfect given the extra weight the hd820 has over the hd800sSo, you don't need any more clamping force? How's sound leakage and bass performance? Would you wear them somewhere in public or they leak too much for listening in public?
The sound leaks a decent amount (it's purposefully only a partially sealed design to avoid the boominess that most fully sealed designs have)
Bass performance is slightly better than the hd800s
I wouldn't wear them in public because wearing $2399 headphone with part-glass earcups in public/transportation doesn't sound like an intelligent idea, especially when it needs more power than a phone can deliver to sound good. I use these at home when the home environmental noise is too high for the hd800s.
