Headphones for big-eared spectacle-wearer

Hi,

I am looking for a pair of headphones to wear in the edit - when I have to.

I've tried the Sony MDR-750s, but they grip too tight on my ears, which hurt after an hour or so.

Any other suggestions for an over/round-the ear set that is limited as the Sony ones are? Don't want to end up blasting my ear-drums every time I import a music track into the Avid and forget to bring the level down before I play it!

TIA

Tim

What about earbuds instead, like the etymotic brand?

Think I'd rather have cans than in-ear ones.

Ultrasone makes some velvety, comfy headphones. They sound nice, too.

I just use one.

...but then I'm deaf in one ear so I only need one. ;)

AKG K240 series. Light weight, and big, soft, comfy over-the-ear cushions on the phones themselves. The cord is rather slender and lightweight, though looping it over the driver housing to make a strain relief will help with any fragility issues.
