Brand new? You don't mean the K301 Xtra rather than the K301 do you?

Can only comment about the ones I've owned so far.

ATH-ES7<HD595<PX100<K701

And the ES-7s are pretty comfortable to me.

Note: Don't even bother trying to find K701s in NZ.. I asked a few retailers and all have given me a quote of around $800. Ended up buy a pair from Hong Kong for a little under $500NZD

EDIT: ooops. got my signs the wrong way round

Beyerdynamic DT990s by far.

My PX100's are the most comfortable out of my small collection. The fact they sound pretty decent too doesn't hurt. I hardly know I'm wearing them.

From what I've owned, the HD595's were by far the most comfortable. I could almost forget I was even wearing headphones. Something I didnt experience with my time with the K701 or any of the Grado's.

I've read that other members rate the ath-es7 very low in the comfort department. Do the headphones rest on your ears or around? And did you do anything to reduce the clamping on the headphones?

I'm thinking of getting these but I'm a little concerned about the comfort and the boomy bass as that's something I don't care for, but I read different stuff so it's hard to come to a conclusion.

Well, they fit on my ears and after a fair bit of use (an hour and a half)the cartilage in your ears might hurt a little but for me taking them off for a few seconds sorts everything out.

Didn't do anything to try stretch or expand the headband as I didn't really feel the need to (I've been told my head is pretty big

)

The bass is there but I wouldn't really call them boomy. As far as the sound is concerned, I'd probably choose them over the HD595's as I fine the Senns lacking in the lower range (even when driven by a Headfive or a PA2V2).

My most comfortable headphone is the HD595
