In brief: Muscle irritation

It sounds like the glasses or headband are irritating the muscles around the ears.
The temporalis muscles are in front and in back of the ears. Some people are more sensitive and compression by glasses or a headband may cause these to tighten and lead to pain. You may try adjusting the tension on the glasses or headband or decrease the amount of time wearing them.
