Headsets for people with glasses

Just like the title says, i'm looking into a new headset for people who wear glasses. I currently have TurtleBeach x12 but after a few hours of gaming, the headset starts to hurt...
i'm looking for suggestions

I recommend contact lenses. Then you can use any face accessory without issues.

But really, I'm not sure there are too many headsets that won't bother you after a few hours. Maybe try something very comfy from a reputable headphone company like Sennheiser. The less clamping the better. Ideally it shoudl be adjustable.

i've done some research as well and that's what many people say...

any opinions on the Astros or Razer headsets?

Never used either but I have creative tactic omega or some ****, the blue wireless ones. They don't bother me unless I have them on for like 4 hours.

I use a sennheiser pc360 and it is very comfortable even after long periods of time, however it just has standard pc style inputs. If you are trying to hook it up to an Xbox or a ps3 you'll need to get something like the astro mix amp or the turtle beach amp.

I love my Astros, but if you are planning on buying a new console, specifically the Xbox One, I'd hold out because it's not clear if any current headsets will work with it. At the very least it will require an adapter to use the chat function.

Edit: Xbox Support Twitter feed said today they are working on an adapter for x360 wired headsets.
