I Bought Soft Headphones: Sleep is Mine Again!
My husband bought me some sleep headphones to block snoring after I showed him an ad. I’d kind of taken over the guest room to get some sleep and I guess he missed me.
I love and adore my husband, but his snoring drives me insane. I’ve been using earplugs for snoring partners, and they’ve worked pretty well for me. Of course, on nights when he’s really cranking it out, I can still hear him.
But I think I’ve found the secret to sleeping with someone who snores. Now that I’ve paired my earplugs with AccousticSheep noise blocking SleepPhones, I kid you not, they have literally changed the way I sleep at night.

I Didn’t Know they Made Sleep Headphones to Block Snoring!
Yep, I actually used those with my earplugs on nights when my husband was super loud. They were painful and I’d about choke myself because I’d wrap the cord around my neck when I rolled over.
I wanted comfortable headphones I could wear while sleeping, I just didn’t know they existed until I saw that ad for SleepPhones.
The first night I wore my sleep headphones, it was like the heavens parted and angels sang. I fell asleep and stayed asleep all night because all I heard was gentle rain falling on a tin roof instead of my husband sawing logs.
Your SleepPhones will work better if you use them with snore reducing earplugs. I use them both together and I seriously can’t hear my husband at all.
SleepPhones: Why They’re the Best Bluetooth Headphones to Sleep in
You can’t sleep (not well, anyway) in those big bulky headphones like I used to. Here’s why I recommend these bluetooth sleep headphones to block snoring:
- Soft, washable headband
- Flat, adjustable speakers
- Play music or white noise from a phone or tablet
- Lead free, eco-friendly electronics
- USB rechargeable battery that can run up to 13 hours.
- Free music downloads available with purchase
- Blocks snoring when used with earplugs for snoring partners
- No cord to wrap around your neck!
If you want to know more about Acoustic SleepPhones, they have a lot of information, including how to wear them, on their website.
How Do SleepPhones Work, and Why are they so Dang Comfortable?
I love these so much more than those torture phones I used to sleep in. I wasn’t sure if these were actually going to work when I was looking at them on their website because it just looks like a headband.
The reason why these work so great is the speakers are flat and they lay over your ears. They’re so flat and soft I can’t even feel them when I have them on. The SleepPhones system is removable because the headband is washable, so I took the padded speakers out so you can see just how flat they are.
Remember, SleepPhones will work best if you use them with snore reducing earplugs.
SleepPhones have a little chargeable brain box that sits right under the closure that goes at the top of your head. It was really easy to remove the box to charge it with its USB cord. Since I’ve been using these for a while, I discovered my cell phone charger can charge my SleepPhones, too.
You can see the volume up, volume down, and power button in this shot. Don’t worry about pulling the brain box out every time you need to change the volume or turn it on or off. The headband is thin enough to feel the buttons and do everything without taking it off.
And the Comfort!
I bought the SleepPhones with a fleece headband. They’re really soft and comfortable and don’t shift at night. They also sell a lightweight microfiber headband I’ll be buying to wear in warmer weather.
Update: They’ve recently come out with the Effortless SleepPhones. It is now at the top of my Christmas list! They’re still bluetooth and wireless, but you don’t have to plug it in to charge it. The Effortless SleepPhones are charged wirelessly. I love anything that you don’t have to plug in to charge.
I took one for the team and took a picture of myself laying down with my acoustic sleep headphones on so you can see how they fit. They’re not the most stylish things, but when I use them along with my earplugs they are the best bluetooth headphones to sleep in because I can’t hear my husband snore.
There’s also White Noise Headphones for Sleeping
SleepPhones also have white noise headphones without bluetooth capability. I would have bought these if it hadn’t been for the fact I have to have an alarm in the mornings.
These headphones have their own sleep sound system built in. It has 17 tracks of white noise and relaxation settings, like waterfall, crickets, waves, and even muscle relaxation to choose from.
I liked these because it came with the white noise feature and I wouldn’t need anything extra. Remember if you’re considering these you can’t connect them to your phone.
Wired Sleep Headphones to Block Snoring
I looked at wired SleepPhones first, only because they are a lot cheaper than the bluetooth or white noise versions. Since I always wrapped the cord from my regular headphones around my neck, it didn’t take long for me to realize spending the extra money was worth it.
But if you sleep with a snoring partner and you’re on a budget, I recommend buying the corded version and upgrading when you can.
If SleepPhones are out of your price range, Don’t think you’re stuck with the snoring! I’ve written a post that lists affordable headband headphones, some of which are under $20.
These are the Best Sleep Headphones to Block Snoring (and Keep Your Partner Happy)
To say my SleepPhones have changed my life is an understatement. When I use mine along with earplugs, I’m able to fall asleep and stay asleep without hearing a peep out of my husband.
But my husband loves them, too. He told me he doesn’t get kicked or whacked all night, so he’s sleeping better, also. He even makes sure they’re charging every morning so they’re ready to go the next night.
If you have a snoring partner and don’t know how to sleep with snoring, or even how to keep from snoring, I can’t recommend these enough. And if you’re a snorer (you know who you are!) these would make a great gift for someone who can’t sleep because of how loud you are. 🙂
Seriously, these things could save your relationship!
