I love these headphones a lot but I have a problem and I am wondering if anyone can help... I wear glasses and after a couple hours the pads pressing my ears into the arms of my glasses begins to hurt and I have to switch out for IEMs for the rest of the day. Any solution to this or do I just have to deal? I also have this issue with other on-ear headphones, so it's not a fault with these.

New glasses. I have several pairs and the Rayban frames are the only ones that don't give me issue, the arms are the thinnest that I have seen. The arms are wide but not thick.

I wear my headphones a little more forward to where my jaw line is. But it really all depends on your glasses, some people got those thick arm frames and if they aren't flush flat with the shape of their head, then it'll create pressure. Best way is to not wear your glasses with the headphones on.

That’s ok, you don’t need to see the music, just hear it. Best is to try to use some heat on those glasses arms and make them flush to your head.

I recently purchased the Porta Pros to have something more portable than my Sennheiser 598's but with a similar sound, and I honestly think the Porta Pros are the most enjoyable headphones under $200. No reason to ever buy anything else for the rest of your life. They're worth four or five times what they cost. I don't know how Koss pulled off this sorcery, but I'm floored every day at the sound of these. I haven't touched my 598's since doing an initial comparison.
