How to wear eye protection and headphones

Hey guys, I have a hard time fitting glasses under headphones. I know a lot of guys use ear plugs and sun glasses, but I don't like ear plugs. especially once they get dirty and go in my ear... Are there any ways to get sunglasses around your head while wearing headphones?

Glasses with plastic temples will have issues with the seal on earmuffs. I wear prescription sunglasses, and don't have that issue, but I hear your pain. I can't think of much you can do. If the glasses break the ear cup seal, that's game over.

There are other ear plug options though. Since you don't mind wearing something with a band, you don't need to use the plugs you roll up and insert. Plugs with a clip don't go as far into your ear. There are ones that are just round, and pretty much sit on the surface (they don't block as much noise, but it may still be enough). Or you can get custom molded plugs that are easy to wash.

thanks for your responses. the only thing I can think of is a type of sunglasses that has a elastic type band and doesn't go around the ear. more like goggles. I hope I don't look too crazy. I want those yellow or rose tinted glasses too
