We love using headphones for everything – to cut out external noise, to watch movies late into the night, to listen to music, stream YouTube videos in the office, etc. But the standard ones aren’t exactly the best things (aside from peejays, of course) to be wearing in bed. In fact, they could be extremely uncomfortable and your head movements are restricted.
So, no listening to lullabies to sleep?
To combat this common problem that a lot of us “headphones lovers” face, Eric Dubs, a product developer outside New York City has developed “Bedphones”. With a degree of mechanical engineering, a passion for music, and constant craving for a great night’s sleep, he has tried, tested, and has finally released a final design which is now available for purchase.
“Bedphones” can be used during the day but they are specially created to be worn in bed for unparalleled comfort. The earhooks are made from moldable memory wire to provide a custom fit whereas the foam-covered speakers are made to lie flat against your ears. Compatible with all devices that accept a standard headphone plug, “Bedphones” also come with a satin eye mask and a soft but sturdy-sided travel case.
Finally, we can enjoy our favourite tunes before bed (or in flight, hence the satin eye mask and travel case) and likely, we’d be falling asleep by the second song. It’s that comfortable!
“Bedphones” are only available in the US at the moment but if you’re anywhere there or happen to know someone who can pick them up for you, they’re priced at $29.95 (RM86) with free US Shipping
