Strix 7.1 headphones,uncomfortable

Hey friends.

I really want to play my games with these headphones since they offer real 7.1 surround.

But in like 30 min of use my ears hurt,they become very hot and I start to have a headache.

Is there any trick I could do to avoid this issue with ears?

 

Please do not take offence for my apparent confusion or rudeness,it's not intent me to be like that,it's just my BPD,be nice to me,and I'll return twice better,be rude and usually I get easly pissed of...I'll try to help anyone here,as long as it's something I dealt with,and even if you think I'm rude or not polite,forgive me,  it's not me it's my BPD.

Thanks for understanding.

you get a headache. could that be due to clamping force or is that related to your ears getting hot?

If the issue is ur ears getting hot i cant see much of a fix, u could try getting different earpads for them or you could even try leave them tilted so they are slightly lifted up off your ears but i dont recommend that as your losing bass responce as well as your surround functionality.

My ears become damn hot..I tried to lift them up.but as you said I loose 7.1 srurround sound.

So is it just me having thiss issue with ears or it' common with these headphones?

Probably they are overtight over my head so my ears don't breath.

Issues like this are relatively insurmountable.

You'd be better off returning them vs. trying to solve the problem.

7.1 surround is mostly marketing anyway.

 

You could get different pads, but pad changes are generally for the worse.

Heads have to many different shapes, its really hard to make a headphones that fit.
Maybe you can alter it to make it fit better, but maybe look for another model that does actually fit correctly.

 

(ps that 7.1 stuff is not necessary for headphones anyway, only have 2 ears. And software can very well put a location on something even behind/above/below you)

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

I asked how to make these headphones more comfortable to my head.

I didn't ask you for advice to switch to virtual 7.1?

Some times ppl need to be told clearly "ITS NOT POSSIBLE". Maybe not for you, but i hope you understand my viewpoint. Some things are just not possible.

But most of my comment was about altering. ;) I just gave you options.
(And yes im also one of them that tried multiple drivers in a headphones. 10 years ago. (Some Zalman wired 5.1 headphones) it still doesnt work :) )

Just went and copied this from some of my previous answers,

"We tend to not recommend 'true' 7.1 headsets here because in real life humans only hear in stereo, two ears creating a binaural 3D image using the minuscule delay between ears (due to the speed of sound) and spectral pinnae cues to localise the audio. The much smaller, multiple, drivers in true surround headphones are each less accurate than the two single drivers in stereo headphones while driving up cost for no benefit in applications with binaural stereo (and given Windows sonic can turn any 7.1 source into binaural audio, many applications don't even need that)."

In short 'virtual surround' is actually more true to life (at least as far as headphones go) than 'true' surround sound. You can use audiophile headphones to hear virtual surround sound.

Thats complete nonsense... I've read the rest of your post, which ironically explains that humans, in fact, hear in 3d, so that sentence I quoted is not only completely wrong, it's also highly misleading.

Technically he's right, we only hear in stereo, our brains interpret the binaural stereo we hear into 3D audio as per my previous reply.

Are you trying to argue with facts? Go take your opinions anywhere else but here. We humans hear in stereo. But we can differentiate stuff because how our ears are shaped and how our ears signal to our brains. But "true 7.1 surround sound" headsets are completely bullshit and wastes both audio fidelity and money.

I know that sounds like I'm trying to argue 'semantics' but it is technically really not, the act of hearing happens in the brain, the ears are only receptors. And humans hear in 3d, not 'stereo' technically or otherwise.

You're literally arguing semantics, we hear two discrete channels of audio, these two channels are L and R (like our ears, one L and one R) and the name for such an arrangement of channels is Binaural Stereo therefore we hear in stereo. We only perceive directionality/dimensionality due to spectral pinnae cues and delay between the two channels.

This is the reason 'surround sound' headphones are marketing bull, we don't need the surround, we can already create a 3D image from a stereo source.
