They are supraural, so pretty much only way they fit is that the driver aims directly to your earcanal and pads inner side rest on your ears, and outer rims of the pad go around your ears. For bigger ears the fit will never be optimal in comfort sense.

Im with the OP on phone position. I like them forward and slightly low, so that the edge of the bowl rest on the edge of my ear and the front almost off the ear.

No, it's the same guy. just two pictures of him. He's wearing it correctly in the picture to the right. The picture on the left shows the same guy wearing them incorrectly, hence the big X.
