TomF1970 says:

If you’re going to go with the AO aviators with the paddle temples, get a good pair. I bought some cheap knockoffs. When I was wearing my headset flying and took my glasses off, the paddles pulled off the metal bar and was left under the ear cup. Pain to put those back to together and keep level flight. Just saying… you get what you pay for.
