Frequently Asked Questions

Are are Sleep Headphones good?

Sleep headphones can be a great tool for those who benefit from listening to music, white noise, or calming sounds as they fall asleep. These specialised headphones are designed to be comfortable to wear even when you're lying down or rolling over in your sleep. Here are some reasons why they can be good:

  • Comfort: Sleep headphones are often made with soft materials and a flat design to provide comfort even when sleeping on your side. Some even come in the form of a comfortable headband.
  • Relaxation: Whether you enjoy soothing music, white noise, or calming podcasts, sleep headphones can help you relax and fall asleep more easily.
  • Mask Unwanted Noise: In addition to providing relaxing sounds, sleep headphones can help mask out unwanted ambient noise, making them a good choice for light sleepers or those with noisy sleep environments.


While sleep headphones can be beneficial, they aren't the best choice for everyone. Some people might find them uncomfortable or hot to wear all night. Others might prefer a completely quiet environment for sleep. If you're considering sleep headphones, look for models that offer a comfortable fit, good sound quality, and easy cleaning. It may take some trial and error to find the right pair, but many people find that sleep headphones can significantly improve their sleep quality and make bedtime a more relaxing experience.

Can you wear headphones while sleeping?

While it is possible to wear headphones while sleeping, there are several factors to consider for your comfort and safety. Traditional over-ear or in-ear headphones may not be suitable due to their bulk or design, potentially causing discomfort or ear pain. Sleep headphones, designed specifically for sleep, are generally a more comfortable and safe alternative. Here's why:

  • Comfort: Sleep headphones typically feature a flat, soft design that's comfortable even when sleeping on your side.
  • Safe Volume Levels: Listening to loud music over extended periods can damage hearing. Sleep headphones often come with safe volume limits to protect your ears.
  • No Tangling: Wired headphones can pose a risk of tangling during sleep. Sleep headphones are usually wireless, eliminating this concern.


However, while sleep headphones are generally considered safe, they're not without potential downsides. For instance, some people may find them hot or restrictive, leading to discomfort or disrupted sleep. Furthermore, continuous exposure to sound can potentially interfere with the quality of your sleep, depending on the type of sounds you're listening to. Also, it's important to maintain good ear hygiene and clean your sleep headphones regularly to prevent potential ear infections. If you choose to use sleep headphones, it's recommended to do so responsibly, keeping the volume at safe levels and ensuring they contribute positively to your sleep routine rather than causing disruptions.
