Just tossing out ideas, no idea if this will work.
So should I go ahead and remove the cushions?

The cushions are removable, I've replaced mine.

Go for it.

EDIT: Have to sleep now, but i'll check in in the morning to see how it went E-Peen, and go from there. Headphone modding is a go!

If you are still in the DIY spirit later, check this HD280 mod out, supposedly changes the sound quite a bit.

Just got myself a Superlux HD681, couldn't find JVC RX700 anywhere over here. How much better is the RX700 over the HD681?
Bye AMD :(

I removed the cushions, only issue is my ears are on plastic now rather than a soft material

Either way, I'm going to wear them without the cushions and we'll see if it's more comfortable than with the material.

Wearing them without the cushions is probably a bad idea. The sound will be terrible without any seal, and it'll probably feel worse.

You could try modding the cushions if you're brave. Removing some of the padding from them could make them not as tight around the ears.

How would I go by doing that? I would do it, if it goes bad... I'll just order some comfortable cushions or sell the damn headphones and by a better pair.

IDK. You would have to open them, remove some cushion, then figure out how to seal the hole.

There may be some other headphone cushions that fit on, but I wouldn't know what they are.
