I have seen similar velcro mask being worn by some of my Punjabi friends since they can’t wear the normal ear strap ones due to their turban. One friend is using this one: https://www.flipkart.com/bismaadh-reversible-co...
Not sure if this is what you are looking for.

Yeah similar to like that but with better protection like N95 or standard

There are back of the head plastic clips available that can be used with regular masks so that the back of the ears are not affected

even casual search lead to many hits of Amazon Snapdeal type sites, but i would not want to share those: mainly because ‘dust and pollution’ are way different from the technical stuff needed for buo-hazards☣️
instead, i am sharing this generic link https://popsugar.com/smart-living/best-velcro-face-masks-47633870
also, aren’t technical grade masks with adjustable straps and even the usual autopsy/ pathologist’s, doctor’s masks with laces/ threads to tie (like ribbons/ shoelaces) available for long now?

even with prescription spectacles, people ARE wearing so-called elastic band type masks too for hours. so unless some chronic condition is the cause of uneasiness or pain in the 👂🏼 cartilage… one can simply toughen up and bear with it!

after seeing THIS post https://desidime.com/forums/dost-and-dimes/topics/which-mask-do-you-use-in-covid19-pandemic#post_6843730 by @goss8877 and once winters approached and i was somewhat okay using online shopping sites after a 8-9 month hiatus.

after some really poor off-line and on-line choices, i finally settled for something like
this https://www.flipkart.com/h-store-grey-helmet-sk... / https://flipkart.com/sellers?pid=BLVF569FNGT88T2Z
but only for protection against the disturbing buzz of 🦟mosquitoes🦟 or to avoid pulling the duvet/ rajaai over the head on a cold winter night.

faaar from advising use of such generics during day-to-day on-road use, i still recommend the use of a certified or at-least built to specifications mask/protective gear when intended use is for protection against biohazards or dangerous smog/gases.

i neither promote, nor particularly recommend any names quoted above, but it is a fact;
that even on a big, clumsy Shrek like head, such design CAN (and do) adjust.
the nagging suffocation or ‘oh my ears pain now’ in most cases does subside over time (once one gets ‘used to’ them).

How about getting a velcro / tie-able at back of head laces stitched to every N95 (or whichever you prefer) mask you buy.?

Ordering online may be a mess– not liking the product (and follow up for return & refunds)

Mi KN95 Masks are very comfortable. Used one in a ~30 hour journey with zero pain in the ears. Fit snugly.
