I normally use a headset when gaming, surfing the net, watching streamed shows etc etc. I am looking for a new headset because the one I have gets uncomfortable after a while. Anyone here have any recommendations for a headset that stays comfortable (or at least doesn't hurt you) after LONG periods of use? (6 - 8 hours).
How long have you had your headset?
In my experience, it doesn't matter how comfortable the set is, if you wear it for hours upon hours, you'll be sore wherever there's pressure.
Eventually, you might get used to it. I have a particularly heavy pair that made the top of my head sore after an hour or two. After a while i got used to them, and i can wear them much longer now (still uncomfortable if i wear them ALL day, though).
One thing you might try is just finding a pair that fits slightly differently, applying pressure to different areas, and then you can alternate pairs when it starts hurting too much.
