Default Cheek Weld

I'm having a very hard time obtaining a proper cheek weld on my AR with headphones on. Do I need to find another option for ear protection, or perhaps risers for my optic. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried some of the lower profile ear muffs?

Yeah, I bought a pair last week. Unfortunately, while it did seem to help a little, they would still lose their seal around my ear when I would prepare to fire. It seems to be the bottom of the earmuffs are hitting the stock when I get down on the rifle.

This is the setup I'm using right now. Risers maybe?

Is your head upright or slanted toward the left or right?
