Glasses Friendly Headsets

Tue Sep 27, 2011 10:22 am

Anyone have a suggestion for a headset that's comfortable for someone that wears glasses? Any headset that I've used that has ear-covering drivers end up hurting me after a half hour or so because the drivers end up pinching the earpieces of my glasses against my head. I'm thinking a headset that has more of an ear-bud style. Audio quality only needs to be reasonable, since I'd just using these for gaming, not music.

What you're looking for is... contact lenses. *rimshot*

Thanks, I'll be here all week. Try the veal!

I kid, I kid. Wore glasses for many years. For what it's worth, I had good success with regular ear-covering (closed-back) headsets that don't exert too much force against the sides of your head *and* cover your whole ear, not just rest on it. By covering your whole ear, most of it will fit inside the 'phone instead of being pressed on by it as is usually the case with open/semi-open headsets.

If you come up with a solution let me know please. I gave up using my beloved Sennheiser HD 280s in favor of Klipsch earphones because the headphones' pressure on my glasses just too got painful. If only headphone cushions came with channels molded in for eyeglass frames.

+1 for the PC151 headset, though I've only recently been wearing glasses with it.
