Do you think the issue is the hard piece of rubber that has the direct contact with your head? You may refer to Redditor ribsies's comment.
I think some people are mistaking what is causing this pain.
I've done lots of testing with this heat issue. If yours gets hot enough to hurt you, you have a bad device. Send it back.
The original Vive wireless adapter has a very hard piece of rubber that is in direct contact with your head. When I started using it, I was noticing pain in that spot as well. It wasn't the heat, it was this hard piece of rubber. I ended up just not folding that part underneath, I just let it hang off the back. No more pain.

The wireless adapter absolutely has a heat generation problem.
Here is my fix:
1: Apply multiple layers of heat reflective gold foil tape to surfaces between your head and the wireless adapter.
2: Add some sort of foam or insulative material between your head and the wireless adapter.
3: Switch to a VRCover Deluxe Audio Strap foam replacement. The VRCover product is much thicker and insulative than the HTC headstrap foam.
4: Fold the velcro flaps between the headstrap foam and the plastic frame of the headstrap.
Taking these steps resolved all heat issues on my head. The wireless adapter itself still gets absurdly hot, but I don't feel it on my head.
