What do I do if the headband of my headphones is too tight?

Headphones are designed to fit the widest percentage of the general population however every person is different and some wearers may feel the headband of the headphones is initially too tight upon the head.

While most headphones will break-in as they are used sometimes this process needs to be helped along and hence a common trick to stretch the headphones is to place the headphones on something (a stack of books, the arm of a couch, etc) to give a little stretch to the headband. When left there for a day or so the tension in the headphone will loosen up and will help to get a proper fit without any discomfort. It is important to remember though to go little by little because too much stretch in a short time could cause a break or crack in the headband if it is stretched too much.
