Will my headphones loosen up?
I just got the Pro700's and they are really constricting on my head and i was wondering if there was a good way to loosen them up so i can wear them for hours on end without fainting. Thank you
I'm a big fan of the PRO700MK2's however you are correct, they tend to be a tight clamp on those with larger heads such as us. This is my recommendation, which has worked for myself and others in the past.
You can either take a melon or a ball, and pet them on it as if it was wearing it- overnight. This tends to loosen them up a little bit and if you're you're using an average size melon or any other spherical object.
If you're not comfortable with that, or don't have something like that on hand, the headbands are pretty rugged and can take a bit of a beating, so don't be afraid to stretch it out a little by even just by pulling the cups apart to push against the resistance. They'll break in.
But you don't want to lose that tight seal, afterall, that affords you some of that great powerful bass the PRO700MK2's are known for, but you do want to be comfortable.
