I am trying to drown out some 'noise' in my bedroom while I'm trying to sleep.

Thought that some form of headphone might work out AND I can doze off to tunes at the same time!

Obviously, standard over-ear or on ear headphones won't work as they'll just slide off as you roll over. And, while I don't use ear-buds at all, I am told they might be very uncomfortable for the entire night's wear. I have seem some headband styles that might work and a few very small earbud type ones that are made very thin.... but, no experience with comfort or sound quality on these.

Anyway - was hoping some CAM members could warn me away or to any particular brands / models.

Thanks!

This calls for a pillow speaker, such as

There are many other models on Amazon.

foam earplugs, you'll get used to them after a couple nights, persevere.

Small in-ear noise cancelling headphones. I've accidentally fallen asleep with mine on many times, and you can keep the volume to a safe level. I wear Paradigm Shift e3m but they're not the best sounding or the most streamlined but still comfy.

I just watched the video on the Kokoon headphones. Seems like exactly what the OP is looking for. Pretty cool stuff.

So much for getting any sleep...

I was looking for a pair of headphones. But, I might be able to make these work for me. :D

Hi guys.

Thanks for the posts. I think the Kokoon might be the ticket. Don't even mind dropping $229 if the sound is reasonable and they let me sleep... Unfortunately, waiting for them to hit market. :? Might pick up the 'sheep headphones' in the meantime.

NOTE: jrms gets first place for a solution. Won't be sleeping much, but, I suspect that won't really cross my mind. :)

Holy crap! Headphones with built in EEG? Does this mean it could wake you an an optimal time, far from a REM cycle? If so, that would make it very well worth the purchase price for anyone. No more groggy awakenings!

Only drawback of the EEG is you have to shave a bald spot in your head were the sensor in the band touches to insure good contact.
