I wear glasses. A little tricky taking the cans off with glasses on, but listening with glasses is no problem.
During the beta testing period, most of the improvements involved comfort. Every version was more comfortable than the last. The retail version feels great, especially with the velour pads. No difference in sound signature with the two sets of pads either. Other folks in the beta group had the impression that the velour pads sounded more "warm". But I did a frequency response check both ways and they came out exactly the same. Not surprising since the drivers point straight into your ear canal.
