They're not that big, they just cover your whole ears. As for being uncomfortable, you must have an oddly shaped head :P I never noticed any discomfort when wearing them, and I played CS for hours on end with them. As for being oval...well...headphones, after all, go around/on/inside your EARS, which are OVAL. At least, I hope yours are oval :x

Not sure what you're talking about when you said they're being stiff, but yes, the leather's pretty cheap. They're 13 bucks though, get over it. 50$ extra isn't worth it for nicer leather that you'll hardly notice a difference with.

the mx518 just looks so big and bulky and not wind resistant. unlike the mx510 so sleek and smooth ready to go at super fast speeds.

Are you an idiot?

The MX518 is the EXACT SAME SIZE AND SHAPE AS THE MX510! It has the exact same "wind resistance" as the MX510, and I upgraded from a MX500 to a MX518, let me tell you, it's actually LIGHTER than the MX500. Not bulky at all.

You must be new to this sort of thing... :\
