Sounds like you need to do what I do to my various hard ears. A pair of zip-ties (carefully applied so that the sharp bit is facing outwards) should keep the foam in place. On this mask, I made replacement foam by cutting up some cheapie pipe insulation I picked up at home depot for another project.
It may not look it but this is super comfy and has lasted for 4 years now.

Not... really.
I've been looking to replace my Spectra for a while too but after wearing them for over half my life nothing else feels right.
V-Force Grillz comes close, and I really like the lens lock system on the Vents/Invert Avatar/Empire E-Vents, but it doesn't breathe as well and the face foam feels too thin.

On every other mask out there the ear pieces fail to protect my earlobes.
