I was wearing it for longer than that yesterday and it was fine for me, only had to "let me ears breath" by lifting the can for about 2 seconds every few hours or so. Great headphones.
Meh...

Anyone thinking about the HF2 needs to get in as quickly as they can; two days ago Todd posted that there were less than 80 out of the 500 still available. I am going to guess that they will all be spoken for within a week.

Just a quick count, by my reckoning we have three OCNHC members already in - Julian (TheCool), Matt (Azazel), and myself. I'd say that's a fair representation for OCN stake in this very limited headphone. But, the more the merrier as they say. In other words, if you got the cash get in on this thing because you will not find more value in another headphone.

I'm reading thoughts from other hobbyists in which they prefer the HF2 to every other Grado headphone. Ever. I keep reading that it has the most ideal balance that a Grado can offer without giving you issues in the treble. Now, I have not had issues with treble in Grados in the past, but it is nice to have some reassurance in that regard because many other people do.

I've noticed some terrible things with the QC. The Head-F1 thing isn't too bad to handle, but one guy's HF2's had some chemical overspray on his lettering, and it looked horrible. Hopefully Grado fixes these issues for the later batches.

I didn't order the HF-2 Aura. I have my money locked up in my current cans lol. Speaking of which, my precious came today!

I have to have my pc turned down 35db to listen at a normal level on most songs with the buffalo plugged right into it. I'm going to try and find some smaller resistors(with very tight tolerances) to use in the IVY of the buffalo to make it put out 1 volt instead of 2 and install a volumite. Then the F1 will be able to be used with pretty much any headphone + the buffalo should sound even better because it would be more of a current source.
