@mikeymet: Interesting, but a tad unusual too.

Speaking of, this deal just popped up, may be worth it for me to try a refurb one to see if I can deal with the back of the neck style (and gaming mic...)

Steel Series has some great headphones/headsets for just about every size and shape. I am smitten with my Siberia Neckband. http://steelseries.com/products/audio

@angelbabi523: True true.
I'm a mechanically minded person and the warranties are always good to keep in mind, and that is also why I like some of the slightly more expensive models that have piece replacement (such as the cord and ear pads).

But you make a very good point

i'm kinda bias and dumb when it comes to ear phones and sound quality and all that technical stuff, but one thing is to compare warranties.

I know skullcandy's come with a lifetime warranty and at the rate i used to go through headphones that was something i considered when i decided i wanted to spend a decent amount on headphones. I have a pair of icon soft's that i love.

@agingdragqueen: I've seen a lot of Sennheiser reviews regarding tighter fit, so alas, I am staying away from them.

Also looking at some Shure SRH440's with great reviews:

There will be many hours of research I can see before I pull the trigger.

Those headphones are the best I've found for my big freakin head. I broke an entire ear piece off two different sets within 2 years, but I use them every day all day during work and also I'm bad with things.

My new Sennheisers have better sound, but they're tight enough that they're pushing my glasses into my head and hurting, but lo, I am weak.

@spikedknight: the v6 has a voice coil. from what i understand speakers with a voice coil are more efficient somehow?? I would likely go with the v6. wth, right?

@holymythos: that is quite the list. Reviewing it now, I guess I need to make sure to get a closed back? So when I'm on a flight the people next to me don't hear everything? (the Grado's all look open)

@vinithehat: Hmmm, I saw those, any idea what the difference is between the MDR-V6 and the MDR-v600?

I present to you the Headphone Guide

Note, this doesn't necessarily help resolve your problem, but it is probably the best headphone guide I've seen over the years, and gives you good suggestions on what to buy and what not to buy.
