Comfortable Cheap Headphones to sleep with - Page 2

post #16 of 32
Thread Starter 
How far in your ears do the CX300 go, and not to sound uber paranoid, but how easily does the tip come off (as in like how possible is it to get the tip stuck in your ear)? And how does their sound quality compare to that of the KSC75 or A900, so I would have something to compare against.

For as long as I had them, even sleeping on my side with them on, they never got stuck inside my ear. Sound quality? Very bassy and muddy, too much for my like. I'd recommend the PK2 over the CX300.

I saw a pillow with integrated speakers (really, i'm not kiding!) maybe just what your after! You just plug you DAP in and fall asleep!

Was it something like this?


To the OP: I agree with everybody who recommended earbuds. I have a pair of MX460s that I always sleep with.

Compared to the MX400/500, they are a lot more detailed, especially in the high frequencies, and they have more bass as well. With the "donut" foams on, I find the MX460 to be warm but with a good amount of detail, and the soundstage and imaging are quite nice for a $20 bud IMHO. I personally like them as much as I like my KSC75.

Edit: I should also mention that I own the MX660, which sounds about the same. I think the MX460-760 all use the same driver.

I honestly couldn't tell you, since I don't own them. The only thing I could find that's remotely close to a comparison is this post, although it doesn't really go into detail, and the poster had some bad luck with his PK3, so there could be some resentment there. Sorry that I couldn't help.

Edit: Found another post that compares the MX660 and the PK3. He seemed to prefer the Yuin over the Senns, although I respectfully disagree with the way he compared to the MX660 to the Sony MDR-E828. In my opinion, the cheaper Sonys aren't nearly as good as the newer Sennheiser buds.

I was looking at amazon at Senn's MX series, and was wondering considering how they are all relatively priced the same, is one model better than the other? Like the 660 vs 460?

IMO, my MX460 and MX660 sound almost identical, which probably means they use the same driver. Here are the differences in the MX series:

MX460--Asymmetrical ('J') cable with no accessories
MX560--Symmetrical ('Y') cable with cable winder and pouch
MX660--Symmetrical with volume control, cable winder and pouch
MX760--Symmetrical, short cable (45cm) + extension cable (80cm), cable winder and pouch

Sennheiser PX100

Closed phones

If you sleep with other people, you might want closed phones. Go cheap. Try Sennheiser HD-201 or 202's. You'll be sleeping soon. If you have a deaf lover or sleep alone, Grado SR-60's work well. If you want to play with ear buds, try the Yuin PK-2s.

I've tried to fall asleep listening to my AKG-271s's. A bit bulky. But I'm game to try it tonight as I love to fall asleep listening to tunes.

Cheers!

A lot of times I actually fell asleep while wearing my Shure E3C. Ofcourse I would wake up totally in panic, thinking I might have torn a cable or so, but after a dozen times, still no broken cable or even sore ears
And yes, I sleep on my left or right side, never flat on my back
