Deep (horizontal) headphones?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
After long stints (4-5+ hours) of wearing my RX900s, my ears' anti-helixes are painfully pressing up against the inner padding. Is there 1) a way to fix this or 2) a set of cans under $100-150 with deeper listening cavities? Wearability with glasses is great, too.

I use them for an equal balance of music (rock, blues) and gaming. I have a Xonar DX.

They do look kind of shallow from what google images shows me. Maybe one of the ever popular to recommend dt770/dt990's?

Super comfy for all lengths of listening periods. Not the most accurate headphones, but very fun to listen to.

There's a budget problem, although I can keep an eye out for used sets.

I have a clip-on mic and want a quality set of standard headphones, not a USB headset that's gaming-marketed. Looks comfy, though.

Wow, they've gotten more expensive since I've bought a pair. My bad.

Tuck cat5 or another thicker cable/material under the pads to add more ear space.

I now have an ethernet cable hanging from my ears, but this might work with some adjustment. I'll try a permanent solution after finals week.

I recommend cutting it to the required length of course.. so that you can hide it/it wont be in the way/transparent mod.
