I've had these things for 3 weeks now and other than the sound quality being no less than superb, the headphones themselves are terribly uncomfortable. The clamping force on them does not let up or break in, VERY uncomfortable on my temples, I feel a headache forming as soon as they're on my head, it also doesn't help that the ear cups are hard styrofoam that isn't cut very well. I literally adjust them every 5 minutes, I CAN'T FIND A GOOD FIT AND IT'S DRIVING ME INSANE!!! I'm returning them today, does anyone have a suggestion for replacements? I was thinking something along the lines of Denon D5000's or something similar. I would get the HD650's but I don't trust Sennheisers faculties for design anymore, these aren't the only headphones by them I've been disappointed after wearing. This is like torture, great sounding headphones that are too painful to enjoy! ;(
I know there are other threads about this issue but I want others input. Anyone who is considering these, the reviews saying they are comfortable are lying!
