They cover all of your ear with your ear sitting comfortably inside. It's like a surround system ..... I've fallen asleep while wearing them and not been in any discomfort after waking. they are terrific headphones. ..would recommend
Some of the better more comfortable over ear phones! I’ve tried some up to a couple hundred dollar range and wasn’t overall as happy as I am with these. Although I think they could definitely use more volume but I am an audio nut and often referred to as deaf. In my defense I use to compete in sound off competitions for my car audio shop. All in all these are a great buy.
