Can anyone recommend headphones for someone who wears glasses?

Asked by Triiiple (1356points) May 1st, 2009

So a lot of my headphones have now broke and its time to get a new pair, might as well get picky.

Im a PC Gamer so i use headphones a lot while gaming but also use same headphones to walk around campus with Ipod on or wherever i may be. Im looking for headphones that would be comfortable to wear with glasses (most that have a head strap thing push glasses in, or move my glasses up or down it gets annoying).

Anyone ever been in my same dilemma? Or just someone with some headphone knowledge please chime in!

I run into that problem daily!

My friend who wears glasses recommend the Bose TriPort On-ear headphones (

I’ve worn them for hour at a time and loved them! They’re a bit pricey but well worth it!

Plus to me they sound awesome!!

I wear headphones in the airplane and I used to have that problem. One thing you can do is change your glasses to a thin wire frame. Ended up getting some similar to this except aviation of course, and they don’t seem to bother me at all. I think it has some space age gel or soemthing.
