Hi Walt,
I agree with you about the tight fit of the sennheisers.. At first I 
felt like I had my head in a vise! got used to them though after a few 
hours, mind you the sony 7506 are a loose fit for my head compaired to 
any other brand.
As you said it's a very personal thing finding the right headphones, 
It's almost like the debate between mic brands.... personally I use 
neumann shotguns, have owned sennheisers too but for the moment 
neumanns are the one for me, may change my mind again soon .. maybe 
when I go back to the sony 7506's!
