Standard in-ear headphones are usually worn straight down with the cable left hanging on the front or back. Because these are in-ear headphones and not earbuds, it helps to wear them snugly by pulling on your earlobes while you insert the ear tips to create a reliable seal inside the ear canal.
How do you wear over ear comfortable headphones?
To make your headphones more comfortable, take some foam or other padding and stuff it under the ear pad, all the way around. This should increase the thickness of the pad, creating more space inside the cup for your ears.
How do I know if my headphones are comfortable?
When shopping for comfortable headphones, look for ones that have ear cups with some freedom of movement—even a little can go a long way. Such designs help sustain a clamping force that wont focus on specific areas of skin, which lead to discomfort, fatigue, or soreness.
