I realize this isn't an audiophile/audio enthusiast forum, but I don't want to make an account at another forum to ask a question I'm sure some people here can answer. I've tried many different headphones (not earbuds, I already have a decent set of those), and I've yet to come across a set as comfortable as the Bose around-ear headphones. But I really don't want to pay Bose prices for them. Like many, I regard Bose as being unnecessarily expensive for what you get. Audio quality doesn't need to be amazing (just good), because the DACs on iPods are not the greatest in the world, anyway, and I won't be using these as monitors. But which manufacturers/models produce headphones that are as comfortable as the Bose Around-ears and similar in terms of that approach to comfort? I haven't seen/worn them yet, but I'm sure some of you have.
