Someone else here mentioned having a big ol' noggin... which I do as well. Wearing glasses makes it harder, since they pinch behind my ears. I find MANY over-ears too tight. AKGs are usually very good, and I like a lot of the Sony DJ headphones where comfort is concerned.

My most recent headphone purchase was a pair from Status Audio. Their CB-1 - their flagship cans, closed back. Thus far, comfortable and sound good, but I haven't done any sessions with them yet, nor any marathon listening sessions. But they're looking and sounding good so far, especially for the price (and they pretty regularly have coupon codes floating around).

Drivar dohaeris. Drivar morghulis. (All drives must serve. All drives must die. Basically, back up your data.)
