I haven't found either the HA-S160 or the HA-S140 uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time, although I've found that the S160 stay in place better. Of the earpads I've tried, I've found that foam is the most comfortable.
Here's an idea. Find foam pads that will fit over the HA-S160 earpads. This will decrease the seal the headphones give, and decrease the amount of bass. If you can't find foam to fit over it, you could use cloth, then cut a hole in the center of the cloth, so the treble won't be blocked.

I just stretched out the HA-S160 even more, so now it gives very little pressure, around the same as the HA-S140. The bass is decreased quite a bit. This does decrease the isolation though.
