How to make a tight fitting pair of headphones wearable with breaking them.

How do you  loosen up a tight pair of headphones and make them wearable without breaking the headband/earcups? I have tried wraping them around a folded pillow for a few weeks and they still fit tight on my right ear (The left earcup for some reason is very comfortable). These are a pair of Ultrasone HFI G-15 which only weigh about 4oz but my right ear starts to ache after 10 minutes of wear. I read somewhere that the nominal  headband pressure is  5,2n  whatever that means. Anyway, any help would be appreciated. I would like to keep them, they do sound great.

The only way I know of to adjust headphones is adjusting the headband.  To avoid breaking it, heat it first then gently adjust it.

Tell it like it is.
