Has anyone besides me experienced throbbing ears from wearing the Crossfade LPs?
 
I have very sensitive ears for some reason, and those big 50mm drivers (relative to the cup size) press against my ears, causing horrendous ear inflammation within 20 minutes of listening. I have tried padding the inner parts of the cups with cotton, but that doesn't seem to work. It is too bad since I love their decent sound stage, rich bass, smooth highs, style, form factor, build quality and all the little goodies they come with. But the ear discomfort has prevented me from using them. 
 
I thought I would mention this because it could be an issue for other people with sensitive, dumbo ears (apparently for these cans) like mine.
