Like water or oxygen, we all need a good night’s sleep to live a long, healthy life. Without it, we become grumpy, less productive, and even sick.
But there’s no one way to fall asleep. Some people need a pitch black room, while others have their specific side of the bed. Some are merely waiting to access Ikea’s genius duvet bundle. Still haven’t found a sleeping ritual that works for you? These headphones may do the trick.
Despite all the reports claiming you should sleep far away from your phone, there’s something incredibly appealing about unwinding to white noise or a soothing song or podcast. After all, sometimes laying down in total silence only makes us run through our endless to-do lists and relive awkward dates from yesteryear.
With a flexible, silicon body and tangle-free wires, ATECH’s Sleeping Buds are both fuss-free and comfortable enough to wear on long flights and, yes, while you’re sleeping. Just turn on a soothing playlist, podcast, or TV show and let your mind wander.
Though ATECH’s buds only have one-sized ear tips, the in-ear portion is designed to keep them from falling out of your ears, even if you’re a side sleeper. At $20, these earbuds are already affordable, but they’re currently on sale for $12.
