ANY headphone that presses pads against the ear is REJECT.
Headphones should cover the entire ear, like a cup.
Pressing the pads, against the ear, results in PAIN! I warned you.
Sennheiser is the only brand you mentioned, that's worthy.
Sony headphones sound awful, I would NEVER buy anything from panasonic, ever.
CLUE: spend at least $100. Cheap headphones = cheap sound.http://www.sennheiserusa.com/around-the-ear-headphones
