I agree that glasses can be a problem both with comfort and on headphones that require a good seal they're a SQ killer. I go the pineapples route and put the arms of the glasses over the phones instead of ears. 
I was going to say make sure the sound enhancer is off if you want a more natural, unprocessed sound. Whether on or off, it's worth playing with the sound enhancer to see which you prefer.

1. Fostex T50RP - modded 2. Fostex T20v2 - modded 3. HD580 (nice general character, nothing outstanding, but good balance) 4. RE0 5. Quart Phone 85 (excellent in some areas) 6. DT990 - 600ohm '80's model (excellent in other areas - about equal rating to the QP85s) 7. Technics EAH 810 - modded, needs more work, could climb. 8. Portapros 9. HD424 11. AKG K140
Oooooh, that looks interesting! This I will watch with great interest.

There are some inexpensive 100mm ear pads on e-Bay, from Hong Kong, which are fairly close to the stock T20v2 pads. The ID is a bit bigger. Initially I needed to put some foam from the front of some DT990s under them which slightly raised them and made a better seal, but once worn in that's not needed. They trade a little less low end for a little more soundstage. They don't flake like the originals.
A_A, I'll make some photos of the G2 for you.

The Fostex headphones have really sold me on the clarity and detail offered by planar technology (if that is the correct terminology) so I find myself wondering if it will be worth the big bucks for the HifiMan over the Fostex? Likewise with the Audeze offering. (I also posted this in that...
