Is the answer to this question the deciding factor as to whether you get these headphones or not?

That's a question I should have asked before buying the K701. I listen to headphones exclusivly in my bed and the K701 keeps falling so I'm selling them ! HD600 and DT 990 are much more "bed friendly" :-)

I dont trust myself using headphones to sleep. At first i thought i might as well use iPod headphones since i didn't care if they got wrecked (which later turned into PK3's). At times i'd wake up with the iPod headphones cable wrapped around my neck.. more than once :\

I've fallen asleep for a few hours with K701's and MS1i's before and they were okay though.

I suppose one could wear any phone in bed, however can they take the stress and strain if you roll over and put pressure on them (ahh sleepy time!). I would recommend looking at the construction of how the cans are attached to the head band. In that regard phones like Grado would be a poor choice, however the k1000 looks very sturdy in that respect.

There's always duct tape, if you wanted to be more active while using K1000s in bed.

Yeah, but I would fear for the white cages and the drivers inside!

If I wore the K1000 all night cause I accidently fell asleep I think my temples would be bleeding by morning or I'd have the headache to end all headaches.

As for bed... you might be surprised at what you can get away with if you ask with a smile.
Uncle Erik, you are a wise, wise man.

I'd be willing to wear the tape, especially if that were all I were wearing.

I actually HAVE worn the K701s in bed, and no, I'm not going to give you any more details than that. The important point is this: You can lie back and enjoy them if you simply work your pillow right. Those giant disks make the phones ride up, so you need to create creases in your pillow so that you can get support for your head without ending up under the phones. It just takes a little ingenuity - a very little. If I can do it, so can you.

Bedmate not included.

I only wear my HD650s in bed... I've always wanted to have a headphone pillow, kinda like one of those airline pillows, I guess, so that you can lay on your side.

Seriously though, it is not a good idea to fall asleep listening to your headphones.

Extended listening can cause damage to your hearing esp while you are asleep. I read somewhere that your hearing is more suseptible to damage when your body is at rest.

Unless of course, you can program your source to turn itself off at a preset time.

Well, my source is a CD player and the music ends as the CD ends. I listen at relatively low volume and I have fallen asleep while listening to headphones countless times. No signs of hearing damage yet . However, your assertion that hearing is more vulnerable while sleeping is interesting and I am inclined to believe it. Can you come up with some links or data on this?
