      So glad you posted it lol. Of the hundreds of headphones I owned and listened to at length that crazy looking headphone. Had the best staging and sound balanced all around. Of course it has its limitations too as in low impact of bass and looking like something from a back to the future seen deletion

                  mine, (sony mdr-f1), are the most comfortable I have ever tried. There is no pressure on the outer ear. A large ring goes around the outer ear, and the phone is suspended just in front of the outer ear. I can wear them for hours with no discomfort.
