RMA'ing my Sennheisers, need help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I just got these in the mail today:


And I've already decided to RMA them. They are quite a tight fit on my head, and my ears rub against the inner lining which is a rough material and it kind of hurts. If I'm spending this much on headphones they need to fit really well.

Now, I have a big head, and my ears stick out a bit, so it's hard to find comfortably fitting headphones. So I need suggestions. I have worn some of the Bose over ear headphones and they were very comfortable so I'm thinking of going for these now instead:


Any ideas? Any other people out there with big heads that have found comfortable headphones? My price range is anywhere up to $200 bucks or so. Thanks for the help.

What's so bad about Bose?!

Anyway, I listen to a lot of metal and classic rock. Some pop/rap now and then but that's not the bulk of it. I just bought my first sound card, a lower end one, Xonar DG I think. I will probably upgrade to a nicer one in the future. For now I just need comfortable headphones with good sound.

Bose is all marketing and brand name now.

If those Sennheisers aren't comfortable for you, then I'm not sure what will be. Sennheiser is regarded as a brand that makes some pretty comfortable headphones. You could check out the Audio Technica ATH-A900. It's a really good all-around headphone with a headband design that transfers weight off the top of your head. The earcups are massive, too.

Dang, I dunno then... These Senn's have great sound quality. Maybe I'll use them for a few more days and see if they stretch out a bit. Thanks for the input.

I would try some Sony MDR-7506's. I own these and they are fantastic. Of course, as a Studio Headphone they should be but its different for everyone.


They are only $85 right now and personally, I think its a great deal.
