Bedphones are the headphones designed for sleep. At less than 1/4 inch total thickness, you can barely feel the foam-covered speakers lying flat against your ears. Earhooks made from moldable memory wire provide a custom fit. Bedphones are compatible with all devices that accept a standard headphone plug. Satin eye mask and soft, sturdy-sided travel case included.

I made an assumption from looking at the photo that these were basically flat ear buds. They are, but they are of a much wider diameter. The pad itself is exactly the circumference of a quarter. As such, they rest flat over the ear canal but don't go into your ear the way an ear bud would. I am an adult male on the smaller side so perhaps my ears are just small enough that the bedphones are uncomfortable for me. They press on the cartilage that is just in front of my ear canal and I woke up with a bit of pain there.
However, I still think that conceptually they are really good and that if they were smaller, such as regular ear bud pad-sized, then I'd be absolutely delighted. The wire that attaches them is meant to loop over the top of your ear. The wire is thin and flexible. I'd imagine that with repeated bending, they'd eventually wear down but these headphones are a reasonable-enough price that for someone who really is looking for a sleep/headphones solution, these are worth it. Because the wire is thin, I didn't really pay much attention to it.
TIP #1: The instructions that come with this recommend to bend the wire into a question mark shape. I found that to be the case, although more of an upside-down J shape really worked best because it put the wire more to the back. Anyway, my tip is that if you are going to adjust one headphone, lay it flat with the other headphone and adjust both at the same time so that you get them to be symmetric.
TIP #2: The "L" and "R" letters marking the left and right headphones are really hard to see. To easily know which headphone is the left one, I tie the left cord into a knot. I do this with all of my headphones because I never know when I'm simply reaching for them in the dark, out of a pocket, or just want a way of telling which one is which based on feel without having to find the letter on them.
TIP #3: After you put these on, lay on one side and adjust the wire, then flip over and adjust the other side. You can subtly adjust these while resting your head on the pillow so that you have both sides comfortable and ready to send you off to sleep.
I contacted the manufacturer and since it broke within the 90 days warranty period, they sent me out a new pair which arrived a few days later. The version that arrived seems to have been redesigned slightly as there are now rings on the ears pieces designed to keep the wire from being yanked out of the ear piece, which is likely what caused the failure of the one I bought. I'm raising my review up to 4 stars since the customer service was exceptional and I do like the product very much. There does appear to be a quality problem and if mine pair had broke a few weeks later I'd be out of luck so I dinged a star. Hopefully the redesign keeps this from happening again.
The replacement set worked longer (6 months), but the left ear piece just cut out again. The wire cover actually came off. I see the price went up $10. I can't justify spending $30 on a disposable set of earphones which is a shame because I use them every night. Lowering review to 3 stars because of quality problems.
- They're somewhat more comfortable than regular headphones for sleeping
- They're cheap
- They come with an eye mask that is very soft and comfortable
- Without fail, they fall off my ears during the night
- The sound quality is not good
- Within a month of buying these, the left headphone fell apart
I'd definitely recommend not buying these, whatever you do.
This "bedphones" are pretty flat. Trying to manipulate the wire to conform to your ear isn't the easiest thing. Neither is keeping them on while you sleep.
- Wire to hold them in place on your ear.
- Need to turn sound up louder to hear them.
I have the same trouble with these as I do with my regular "in ear" headphones. With the sound up louder, it leaks out and my wife can hear it some. I also use a CPAP mask and tried having the straps (I use a full face mask) hold it in place, but still no go. Need to find something different.
