A lot of factors prevent you from getting deep sleep and you may wake up every few hours at night with annoying sounds. Luckily, sleep headphones make quality sleep more accessible, but are they actually as good as advertised? How do you know which one is right for you? Let’s find out.
These types of sleep headphones are also known as earbuds and fit securely into your ear canal. The sound quality of these headphones is above average and using them for long hours may cause discomfort in the ears of some users.
On-ear or clip-on headphones are smaller than over-ear headphones that sit on your ear without causing much discomfort. The only drawback is that side sleepers may find them too big to sleep comfortably with.
They are the traditional headphones that just mold around your ear for a snug fit and are on the bigger side. They often have a solid band that comfortably wraps around the top of your head. Sleep masks with on-ear headphones are a bit more expensive than other options because of their premium sound-canceling feature.
Loud noises are the biggest enemy of your sleep and negatively affect your sleep quality. If you live in a noisy house or on a busy road, you might know the struggles of falling asleep after a long day. Thanks to Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect sleep headphones with your electronic devices and listen to anything you want to lull yourself to sleep.
Other than allowing you to listen to your favorite track, sleep headphones also block light from reaching your eyes. You can get 3D sleep headphones that ease pressure from your eyes and relax your facial muscles.
Though we all prefer sleeping in a completely silent area, some people might get anxious in pin-drop silence and need constant sound to comfortably fall asleep. Sleep headphones allow you to enjoy whatever you want without disturbing your partner or other fellow sleepers. Some versions even enable you to play white noise like a fan or the sound of rain in a soothing tone that works like meditation.
You may think that sound quality isn’t very important for sleep headphones because you won’t actively listen to whatever is playing, but your subconscious still understands the music. To enjoy quality sleep, get headphones with a slightly heavy bass profile to cancel out ambient noises.
Because you’re purchasing sleep headphones to enjoy a sound night’s sleep, they should have a minimum battery life of nine hours. While more runtime is better, you shouldn’t lower the nine-hour mark because what you don’t want is your sleep to be disrupted at 3 a.m. just because of the battery.
Because sleep headphones are made of thicker material for cushioning, you will sweat even if you sleep in an air-conditioned room. It’s better to get washable sleep headphones to get rid of the pungent smell and keep them clean to maintain hygiene.
