Headphones for glasses users

Looking to buy a set of headphones as a gift. It's going to be used for watching netflix, so sound just has to be good enough. Need noise cancelling, and comfortable to wear with glasses for under $200 Canadian.

 

I was considering the Sennheiser HD 450bt but some reviews say it's very tight to wear

Does it have to be bluetooth? Also what is he/she going to connect the headphones to?

PM or DM me if you have any questions about audio or about your PC.

Why spend thousands on peripherals and your PC and forget one of the most important things... - Audio.

My HyperX Cloud and Stinger is very comfy, the first one that don't make me suffer.

Sony is a no no.

Wired is preferred. They'll be connecting it to their laptop to watch Netflix.

I haven't used a lot of different ones, but honestly I've never had any issues wearing any headphones over glasses

Issue is some headphones have a very tight band which presses the glasses fram into the side of your head. The Sennheiser HD 450bt review specifically pointed that out, so I want to avoid that

Okay. So if you want good audio for movies. You really want open back. You could get the SHP9500 that are really really comfy for glasses users.
