The cushions don look like they are big enough will NY ears rest on the plastic or the cushion
Depends how big your ears are! Mine are average size and seem to fit inside the silicone cushion nicely. That said I wouldn't imagine you would notice any major discomfort if part of your ear was pressing on the silicone outer rim as it's about as squishy as the inner silicone plate.
