I'm looking to buy either AD900s or 598s to replace my AD700s, which my fiancee has appropriated. I find the AD700s very comfortable. I have a big head, and like the wing design taking weight off the middle of the top of my head.
It would be a no-brainer to upgrade to the AD-900s sonically, as I like the 700s for the most part, and understand that the 900s mostly fix the shortcomings of those cans. However, I have read that the AD900s have smaller earcups, shallower pads, and non-angled drivers which together can result in the driver cover cloth touching the ear, which I have found to be uncomfortable on other headphones. I have also read that the cloth touching the ear is from people "wearing them wrong." Could any owners, particularly big-headed ones who've owned 700s, shed light on this?
Anybody own both 900s and 598s (ideally with a big head) who can comment on the relative comfort of them?
