Ear Buds to Help You Sleep

By Tracey Dowdy

If a good night’s sleep is something you dream of – well, you would if you could only fall asleep – these noise-masking sleepbuds and headbands can make those dreams come true.

Bose just released the latest in their line of headphones, but their Noise-Masking Sleepbuds are for improving your sleep, not listening to music. They’re tiny, weighing less than half of what my AirPods weigh, just 1.3 grams vs. 4 grams. Users choose a preprogrammed sound on the companion app and the sound plays directly from the Sleepbuds – not streamed from your phone. There are currently 10 soothing sounds to choose from and you can program one to play all night and then wake to an alarm without disturbing your partner. They live up to Bose’s reputation for quality and, of course, come with a Bose price tag. At $249, they’re the most expensive buds on this list.

Both Bedphones Wireless Sleep Headphones and Bedphones Sleep Headphones are advertised as “ultra-portable and light-weight.” Each allows you to fall asleep listening to music, audiobooks and podcasts, or you can choose from their library of soothing, sleep-inducing sounds. Both are very thin, making them comfortable even for side sleepers, and the battery lasts for 13 hours on a single charge. (Wired – $59.95/Wireless $99.95)

SleepPhones take the earbuds and tuck them into a padded fleece headband. Available in wired and wireless versions, the headband speakers play music, audiobooks, meditation apps, white noise or you can tune in to a favorite radio station. There are a variety of sizes, colors and models to choose from, including a replacement Bluetooth module should the original break. (Prices range from $99.95 – $149.95)

CozyPhones are also designed in a headband, have a cooling mesh lining, ultra-thin speakers and come with a travel bag. The cord is braided for added durability, so it doesn’t tangle or kink. It’s compatible with a large number of devices, including Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Samsung Galaxy, Blackberry, Nokia, LG, HTC, Google Nexus, Lenovo, Asus, Sony, Dell, Toshiba, and HP laptops. (Currently on sale for $18.97 – regularly $29.99)

MaxRock’s Soft Silicon Earphones aren’t designed exclusively for sleep – they’re equipped with a microphone – but they are great for noise cancellation. And because they’re made of silicon, not hard plastic, they’re comfortable for sleeping. They come in two colors and include a carrying case; and, because they’re designed with a double layer silicone tip, they won’t fall out whether you’re sleeping or working out. Also, at this price point, they’re a great back-up set of headphones to keep in your travel bag or at the office. ($13.99)
