How do you guys wear them? I've been able to wear them foward off the back of my ears pain free for a few hours now, but I can't wear them on the back of my ears to help isolate. Dangit, I don't like wearing them like this. Also I'm the kind of person who will press them against my head as hard as I can just to improve isolation. I need to not hear the world!
If you not need to hear the world then I'm sorry to say wearing headphones is a bad choice.
In your case I would go for some well isolating IEMs.
