    Heh, I thought you were asking about earmuffs that have headphones built in. I had a pair of those; I wonder if I could still find them... Sep 2, 2016 at 9:08
  • @PeterCordes Those would be "earmuff-like headphones".

Earmuffs are objects designed to cover a person's ears for protection or for warmth. They consist of a thermoplastic or metal head-band, that fits over the top or back of the head, and a pad at each end, to cover the external ears.
