So about 3 times I tried to locate the hotspot best I could and press in the styrofoam a bit at that place and a little around it. It might be a bit better but I wont know until the next time out... Don't know if there's a best practice for this, I've never had this issue before in a helmet. After wearing it and really liking it (except for the hot sport of course), I am determined to resolve the issue so I can wear it in total comfort.

Any advice?
We often have to smoosh the Styrofoam liners of helmets when installing headsets for customers. We use the rounded end of a screwdriver handle. You can get good leverage with that and can probably get 1-2mm of compression with this method - probably enough to relieve the hot spot.
