The Best Wireless Headphones For Sleeping can really make a difference in getting through those tough nights. Sleeping is what gives us energy and allows us to function throughout the day. Those bad nights can put you in a bad mood or go as far as negatively affecting your mental state which is why I have provided 9 wireless headphones for sleep to help you feel more relaxed going to sleep and hopefully allow for a night of consistent sleep.
After the list of products, I have listed some ways that can help find the headphone that is best for you to get better sleep.
Top 9 Wireless Headphones For Sleeping
1. Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic
Bose QuietComfort is one of the most popular noise-canceling headphones. If you are looking for something noise-canceling where you do not want to be disrupted by the slightest noise then over the ear headphones are perfect. These headphones also have the Alexa feature to enable voice access for music and any other uses you desire
. You will be able to have 20 hours of music on a full charge or up to 40 just using noise canceling. That is the most amount of battery life compared to the other headphones on the list. The downside is that headphones are not very comfortable for side sleepers but are great for traveling if you are looking for headphones to use while traveling. Unfortunately, it is quite expensive at about $400
2. Soundbot SB210 Wireless Headphone Beanie
The Soundbot Beanie is designed, as it says in the title, as a beanie. There are many colors and types to choose from and are perfect for the wintertime. This design is for sleepers that tend to get colder at night and don’t necessarily want the whole blanket covering them for warmth. Or this product is perfect if you live in colder weather and still would like to listen to music as you take a stroll.
The beanie has the speakers inside the fabric which are removable to wash and the speakers are Bluetooth. These speakers are built for an HD experience for clarity and balanced sound. There are also accessible buttons on the side of the beanie where you would usually find the brand printed on. There is the ability to do up to 7 hours of calling and 5 hours of music. This is a design perfect for side sleepers and at an affordable budget of $15.
3. WATOTGAFER Music Sleep Mask
These sleep headphones are Bluetooth but also are designed as a sleep mask. This design is perfect to block out the light and for side sleepers. The fabric is a breathable rebound memory sponge allowing for facial relaxation and reducing stress before sleep.
The design is like a sleep mask where you can strap it behind your head using the velcro straps and adjusting to your preference which allows you to be more comfortable having that adjustment done by you. With just two hours of charging is 10 hours of battery life and buttons in the front of the mask for you to control instead of having to lift your mask and adjusting the volume manually through your phone.
The mask design is perfect for those who are easily woken by the smallest bit of light. Since it is a mask those who have a smaller head may have trouble with this product. As the product is adjustable to preference it is made to be adjusted where the speakers are still aligned to yours so it needs to be adjusted any further a person with a smaller head may have trouble getting the speakers to reach their ears as well.
4. Amazfit PowerBuds
Now if you are not a fan of the headband design and would like some added features the Amazfit Buds are wireless earbuds would be a great choice. They are water-resistant and noise canceling. A lot of the headphones that I have mentioned so far are not noise-canceling and if outside noise is something that typically disrupts your sleep the Amazfit is a good choice.
The Amazfit has about 8 Hours of Battery Life on a Single Charge and 24 Hours with the Charging Case. These are perfect for other uses as well such as taking work calls or just listening to music during the day. These buds can also be used during a workout as the Amazfit has a heart rate monitoring feature.
The price is just under $100 which can be seen as expensive especially if you are really wanting these earbuds to help with your sleep. I would recommend reading at the bottom of the article where I have provided from factors to consider when buying the product.
5. Joseche Wireless Sleep Mask
Joseche is another wireless sleep mask with a velcro strap in the back to adjust to your preference. This sleep mask has up to 9 hours of battery life and is built with a mic to take phone calls. The fabric is 95 % cotton to absorb any sweat for those sleepers who tend to get very warm at night and 5% polyester for soft comfort. While the WATOTGAFER has the buttons in the middle close to the temples the buttons for the Joseche Sleep Mask the buttons are on the lower left side of the mask rest near the cheekbone.
Again this is perfect for people who need complete darkness to feel comfortable during their sleep. Compared to the WATOTGAFER the design falls lower on the face blocking out any light that might slip through the bottom of the mask. I understand that this design can be irritating for people that may not want to feel smothered by the fabric which in that case the WATOTGAFER may be a better choice.
6. Lavince Bluetooth Sleep Headphones
These Lavince Bluetooth Headphones have the headband style design with longer fabric on the side to fully cover the ears. This design allows for side or frequent moving sleepers to sleep without the headband rolling up since it has that longer fabric on the side. The fabric is a stretchy mesh that prevents heat from building up or store around your head at night and gives a more cooling effect. The speakers have Ultra-Thin HD speakers with up to 8 hours of power.
This headband also includes buttons in the front near your temples and a microphone to ensure you don’t miss any calls. Due to the extra fabric, this might feel more like a beanie to those who have smaller heads. Also, this headband is not adjustable and only comes in one size so if you are interested see if the measurements are to your preference.
7. Kokoon Sleep Headphones
The kokoon sleep headphones are styled as Bluetooth headphones. What is unique about the kokoon headphones is that they have an app specially designed for sleeping and relaxation. The app was created by sleep experts using a cognitive behavioral therapy technique. I would recommend this for people with frequent troubles of sleep or those experiencing insomnia.
The headphones include adaptive audio that responds to you falling asleep by fading away from the music or anything you are listening to. This helps when you are at a sensitive stage in your sleep where any noise sounds a lot louder than it is and can wake you up, well this feature helps that by fading out the noise you have chosen.
The design is built to be soundproof and comfortable so that nothing disrupts your relaxation. For example, any late-night city noise that doesn’t have consideration for your sleep well these headphones should help with that. The earpads are detachable to wash and are designed to maximize comfort while you sleep while allowing air to flow.
8. Acoustic Sheep Sleep Phones
These headband styled wireless headphones are perfect for sleeping if you have the fear of getting tangled up by wireless headphones or fear of one Bluetooth earbud falling out in the middle of the night which does not help with getting ample sleep. The sound is not noise canceling but does help block out ambient noise.
There are very flat speakers are within the breeze fleece of the fabric. This fabric allows for a constant flow of air so that you won’t overheat at night and for those who often feel cold the coverage on the ear will help with warmth. If you choose, the fabric can be moved down to cover your eyes and the speakers can be taken out of the fabric so that the headband can be washed.
The AcousticSheep has up to 13 hours of battery life which is perfect to even use for traveling on long flights. It is also important to note that a family doctor invented AcousticSheep to help people with sleep problems allowing them to relax more at night. With this goal, the product is made for comfort and built to be relaxed by the sound of your choice. I would recommend this to those who do experience difficulty falling asleep as this product is on the cheaper side compared to more expensive products later on in the list.
9. GOOJODOQ CSR Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds
These Bluetooth headphones are perfect if you prefer Bluetooth earbuds but are a bit scared to lose one in the middle of the night. They are designed where both earbuds are connected by a wire and sit lightly on the lower back of your neck. They are also designed to block out any background noise especially for those who may sleep with someone who snores a bit too loud at night. T
hey are made with flexible silicone material to help prevent from falling out. The battery power is up to 15 hours which is a perfect amount of time for sleep and a morning run. The Sleep Headphones also have button control on the wire with a mic and are available to use Siri. I would recommend this type of headphones if you are worried that the fabric styled headphones might cause overheating or if you have sensitive skin and wouldn’t prefer any fabric at all.
Before Buying The Best Wireless Headphones For Sleeping
It’s important to know that before buying headphones for you to sleep that you should acknowledge the reasons why you are having trouble sleeping. Most nights we can say that we just didn’t have a good sleep but try to ask yourself why that is and see if the choice of headphones can help. For example, if you are overheating and constantly kick the blankets off the bed and you wake up finding your blanket on the floor then I wouldn’t suggest the beanie headphones.
You want to make sure that what you’re purchasing is not going to make your sleep worse or more stressful because then there goes your money and sleep. It’s also important to figure out the position you sleep in. Some questions to ask yourself is if you often feel warm or cold at night. Do you often turn and move around? Do you get irritated by small lights in your sleep space? Some people sleep on their backs and never move throughout the night.
In that case, any of the headphones can work for you but if you are like everyone else and tend to toss and turn a bit then the over the headphone styled ones may not work for you. After you have done that you can think of some of the factors below to narrow your search down.
Of course, when you’re buying headphones for sleep you want to make sure you’re comfortable. Looking at the design and fabric, depending on headphones, can help you decide what choice can be comfortable for you. If you find it hard to get comfortable at night then definitely keep that a priority because the goal is to find something to help you get to sleep.
It is also good to know what price you are willing to pay because some headphones can be really expensive. I am not telling you how to spend your money but my opinion would be depending on the level of your sleep trouble can help determine the budget. For example, if you don’t have trouble sleeping you would just prefer to be more relaxed then a smaller price may work for you.
If you experience insomnia or any other sleeping disorders of course you want to make sure that the product meets all your needs before spending the money. It is more frustrating buying an expensive product that is supposed to help with relaxing but only brings stress. Overall I can not tell you how to spend your money. That is your preference. I just want to ensure you have the best experience from the product you get.
Now the design of course is all about preference and comfortability. I have given the options of the headband, eye mask, earbuds, and headphones. If you’ve experienced trouble constantly opening your eyes and getting irritated with the small amount of light creeping into your room then I would most definitely recommend one of the eye masks.
If you still want the comfortability of an eye mask but feel that something covering your face might keep you up then a headband design would be great. Like I said earlier it will also be important to acknowledge the way you sleep because some of the designs are not recommended the best for side sleepers or sleepers that toss and turn.
Again your sleep is very important so that you are living up to your potential during the day and a night of bad sleep can hold you back from that. At the end of the day, all the products have so much potential it is just finding the one that can change your sleep for the better is just a matter of finding what would work best during your sleep. I hope you have found the best wireless headphones for sleeping.
