Comfort is a real issue for me with all phones, as I am blessed? with rather big
stick-out ears.

The only ones I've ever had that were comfortable for long periods were ones I
modified many years ago with huge foam pads, a deliberately weakened spring,
and an adjustable canvas strap to take the weight evenly over my head.
Foolishly I loaned them to someone - never saw him or the phones again :(

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
