2.0 out of 5 stars I hate these headphones., December 16, 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Audio Technica ATH-PRO5VA Closed-back Dynamic Stereo Monitor Headphones with 40mm Neodymium Drivers and CCAW Voice Coils, Silver (Electronics)
I bought these for their circumaural feature, meaning I expected them to surround my ears. They did not. They only sat on my ears and even worse, they slipped back off my ears, constantly!!!! If I turned them backwards, meaning left on right ear and right on left ear, they did not slip as much.

The clamping pressure too is like a head vice. If I pull out the headband and stretch it, they are less tight, but then they don't come down to cover my ear, leaving like an inch uncovered at bottom.

I was so disappointed. I guess sound is okay, but not worth the discomfort. They are now in a drawer, wasting away.

Thanks for taking the time to review these headphones. Perhaps you could let us know if there is a brand & model that you have found works better for you and why. Also, since head & ear sizes are different, comfort will be certainly be different. Apart from the lack of comfort, how was the quality of the music?
