"Uncomfortable But sound good"2.5 starson by caracal223
Pros: GREAT Sound
Cons: VERY Uncomfortable
Summary: Amazing headphones but what was Grado thinking.. They re so uncomfortable.. even with a sock over the pads its still too uncomfortable. At the beginning I couldn't wear them for more than 15 minutes because the back of my earlobe would be hurting LOTS!... I put a sock over the pads to help with the coushioning but still not so comfortable so I can forget I have them on.... I have to always take them off to massage my earlobes from all the intense pain..
It's pretty sad to make such good sounding phone with such insanely crappy system..
The speaker turns and I believe this is the main cause of intense pain... because they turn they always want to turn towards the back of the head and put pressure on the rear of the ear. Now I gotta figure out how to get them to be stuck in one place and stop turning.
Also the headband even on the shortest setting doesnt even touch the top of my head???.. And I don't have a small head..
This also contributes to all the pressure sliding down on the ears!! I had to wrap some material over the top to get some coushion going so they won't slide down...
To summarize, COMPLETE garbage in sense of any comfort or fit on the head, but good sound...
Makes you wonder, did grado think we'd hold the speakers to our ears with our hands just because it sounds so good?
