I have the original pair (the DS7500), but I use them constantly, and sometimes with 3D.
For me, I put the glasses on first, then put on the headphones. I have a couple different types of 3D glasses; you'll want ones with the thinnest possible plastic at the point above your ear (I guess, according to google, that's called the "temples"?). Reason being, the headphones won't fully "seal" around your ear, because the plastic of the 3D glasses is in the way, slightly.
I find that by the end of a long 3D movie, I have an indentation above each ear where the headphones were pushing the temples portion of the glasses against my head.
All this being said, it's definitely doable. It is only slightly uncomfortable, IMO. To be able to watch 3D movies late at night without disturbing anyone, it's worth it to me.
