Super Comfy Headphones?

So I am in desperate need of some headphones, I have a few year old bose that have fallen apart, but also they hurt the top of my head when I wear them. I need something that will be super comfy and not hurt my head. They can be usb or 3.5mm plug or even bluetooth if they sound good.

Thanks!

The Sennheiser 555s were very comfortable, at least in my case. They fit over the ears like a glove, and it's soft all around the headband.

Coincidentally, I mentioned on another forum that I am very happy with my Beyerdynamic DT880. I suggest that, if you can, find a hifi headphone specialist shop (there are some on the internet), and enquire there. I imagine you are more likely to get more informed opinions there than just on a computer forum.

My choice as well. Beautifully designed, very comfortable (made from genuine leather), sufficiently small to be portable, and offering very good sound quality; I bought a pair last year and have used them quite a lot for travelling in the period since then; personally, I have found them quite comfortable on plane journeys that have lasted for several hours.

I like my Sony MDR-V6 headphones. Very comfortable and fold up.

Hi again, I have just been catching up on this other thread on headphones: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1521065 There are a few recommendations arising there. If you can, do a live comparison (and, if you can, include those DT880s).

Try These

Would like to pick up a pair of Beyers. Rockwells Reviews in technical detail here. Also see the NY times reviews.

Rockwell also gives decent marks to a more affordable sony and an audio technica pair on his website. Poke around.

Hi there, I'm new to this forum. But when the subject is comfortable headphones... I feel compelled to recommend my all time favourite headphones for comfort: Wildfire by Smart. http://www.smartheadphones.com.au/product/wildfire
The cushions are so incredibly soft it's unreal. And the sound quality is terrific. Bonus is that when I travel, foldable to about the size of a small palm so it fits in my bag nicely.
