On Ear Headphones (also known as Supra-aural Headphones) are generally less bulky and lightweight when compared to Over Ear Headphones. They may also offer better comfort to some listeners who may not appreciate the increased "sweat potential" of having the cups completely surrounding their ears. However, some people don't like the feel of On Ear Headphones sitting on their ears for hours at a time. Of course, much of this is subjective depending on one's ear size and shape.
