It has been widely shared on forums and blogs that over-ear headphones tend to be more comfortable than on-ear headphones, especially for users who wear glasses.
This phenomenon is largely due to the fact that the ear cushions of over-ear headphones embrace the circumference of the ear instead of pressing against the ear. As a result, there will be less pressure on the temporal bone and ear cartilage.
However, as mentioned above, over-ear headphones tend to be heavier than on-ear headphones. Therefore, the clamping force of the headset will be much stronger than before.
This can counteract the pressure drop that comes from pressure point changes from the on-ear headphones. You should keep this in mind when buying over-ear headphones.
