When you wear eyeglasses, plus over the ear hearing aids on both sides, these mask with elastic bands that go on each ear are a pain! Every time I try to remove the mask, it pulls one or both hearing aids out and hangs up on my glasses. Had DW do surgery on the mask and make elastic bands that fit over my head to hold the mask on, much easier.

Guess what? I get a haircut today, after three months!!!

I had to laugh, since I am in the same boat !
My method now:
1. take off glasses
2. take off hearing aids
3. Put on mask
4. Put on hearing aids
5. Put glasses back on
6. Remind myself to pull mask over y nose
7. If all goes well I don't have to curse

Masks made for the medical market go over the ears as you describe. The reason being you can more easily take them off for sanitary reasons.

Masks made for the carpentry (and other dust producing trades) go around the head. The reason being they are more comfortable and easier on the ears, especially for uses where you'll be in them for hours.

I lack the hearing aids, but the glasses are still an issue. Especially when it's safety glasses on top of reading glasses.

And speaking of masks, my wife is sewing masks for our local elks lodge to help raise money for our various charity fund raisers. I know I'm not suppose to post spam or solicitations, and I'm not trying to sell anything, just thought it is worth noting.
As I tell people, my wife & I work to accomplish this. Shes a seamstress and I'm an alcoholic.

Be happy you have ears otherwise nothing to hang the hearing aids on, nothing to hold up your glasses and nothing to hook the elastics on.

I too have both eyeglasses and BTE hearing aids. My masking process is pretty simple. I put the mask in place and hook the elastic bands over my ears making sure they're on the outside of my hearing aids. Then I lift my glasses enough to let the formed top of the mask slip into place. Removing the mask, I simply slide the bands over my ears starting at the top just in front of my ears, and my hearing aids stay put while I slip the mask out from under my glasses.

FYI, if it claims to be N95 and it has ear loop bands, it is most likely counterfeit.

N95 has two seperate bands for your head that are fastened mechanically (like with a staple).
