Just upped my "mix in the cans" game

Recommended Posts

Fortunately, the only glasses I use have liquid in them, but I find even 30 minutes of wearing headphones is about all I can take at one time.

I often wear headphones for 6-8 hours straight. That's because most nights I fall asleep with them on.

Sennheiser's fuzzy parts are super comfy. If they get drool-caked, toss them into the wash. (Not the whole unit, just the earpads.)

I have off ear headphones i can wear indefinitely.

I cannot wear closed back headphones more than on hour or so.

I've just bent the headband on my ATH-M50x headphones, on both sides where it connects to the earpieces:-

I obviously wouldn't recommend anyone try this at home but my headphones are not quite as tightly clamped around me head now. I now need to wear them for a long-ish session, see how they go.

I believe you meant to say "wouldn't" Andy! 🙂

didn't go very well... being uncomfortable after an hour must be a "feature!"

How are they sounding, and, more to the point, I think, fitting? Comfy?

They are not quite as comfy as the HD600s but certainly  little more comfy than the ATH-50s. So for mixing they might be a welcome change. The nice thing is the sonarworks unique profile is internet accessible and thus downloadable to my machine. So, in time I can pass these in to whomever and they can either use them as regular cans or as sonarwrks cans with the profile.

My ATH-M50x were decorating a football for the first week as a welcome initiation. Not sure how the football liked the sound though. Five years later they are about right size now.
