hi - I think you seek the Holy Grail - but if you do find it let us all know...;-)

My solution has been to get two decent pairs of headphones - one is over the 
ear and one is on the ear. I can wear each for 3-4 hours (which is a long 
time if you think about it) before I want to tear them off my head (I wear 
glasses and have a large head, so nothing really works). By trading off 
these two pairs during a contest, I can have one part of my ears getting 
tired while the other is getting rest.

hope this helps! - jeff wk6i
