    When you make weird gestures with your hands to describe what you hear.

    I think you mean Adamantium plated carbon nanotubes to 99.99999999999999% purity.

    Bathed in anaconda oil, dragonfly tears and Arctic seal sweat, with a LV8 Curaga cast over it.
     
    I don't think anyone would actually cover a sheath in platinum or gold though.

    God, on the topic of earwarmers...
     
    My Pro/4AAA seals so tightly against my head that it totally locks in heat; its like huge pair of earmuffs.

    Most open-backed headphones don't, at least not in my experience.

    Generally not, but then i guess headphones like the beyers with the soft velour does keep things mildly warm, or is it the summer heat that's making me delusional

    No, but if they fit too tightly the pressure can make the ears red, which along with the pain brings a sensation of warmth. At least that's what happened to me, ages ago when I had Grados.

    Some people seem to experience what you do (Beyer pads sealing in some heat), and others don't. I'm one of the latter. I can wear mine for hours on end and my ears never get warm. I would have suggested that it might be a difference in pad material (for instance, the DT770 pads are supposed to be denser from what I've read), except that you have a DT880 also, meaning you'd have the same pads as me.
     
    I wear mine with the cups as low as I can get them so that the top of the pad almost touches the top of my ear. The fit is secure but not tight. Maybe differences in fit contribute to differences in heat capture?
     
     
     
    You know you're an audiophile when you're discussing the heat retention qualities of a former flagship can.

    When you buy food from starbucks and you know you have enough money when you see them eating. You notice it that it is great but can't understand why. Then you think that headphones are great cause the food is great, am I right? 
    Also, when you think you are about to get something but then you think it isn't worth it but you have second thoughts about it, but you realize that you don't really need the headphones but its kay. You buy the headphones anyway and you can't pay for any of the bills. They shut off all your utilities and you are stuck with having to poo in a bag and trashing it in public trash bins. And when you have no more money for actual food, so you start taking food from Costco samples whenever you go with a friend to Costco. And when you reuse a plastic cup over and over again until mold starts growing, but that is besides the point. we are in love and we can't help it.

    hmm thats intresting, oh well at least where i am its only about ~28C at night and ~33C during the day in the shade (not sure about direct sun though) so i guess i won't need them to capture anymore heat, so open stuff is good for my ears

    Not at all. And if it is raining or snowing, you better keep them indoors too.

    hmm i wonder now, is it possible for it to be so cold that the drivers become too brittle and shatter when being used?

    I don't think it'll happen with V-MODA's headphones as they meet MIL-STD-810G environmental tests.
