    Just received my iGrado headphones.
    They are really uncomfortable!
    Will they adjust in time? Should I mod them somehow?
    I wanted to take them for the flight to the US, but I guess I'll take my SR80 instead...

    Depending on the size of your head and shape of your ears the iGrado can put pressure on the ears.

    Interestingly, I have a relatively large head (if I buy hats or caps I normally have to go for an XL size) and can wear a pair of iGrados with no discomfort.

    I have to say that both the iGrados and SR80i is really quite unsuitable for travelling on a plane as they leak sound in and out. The person sitting next to you will be cursing you! :D
