The weights of both the headphone and it's bass together will keep you awake.

 

I had this same issue with the bassier HD650. I figured it was just the HD650 because it was warm and relaxing sounding. I figured the brighter sounding Q701 would keep me awake.

well that sucks, I sorta understand what you mean when you say you want to keep listening to music.

I guess there's only so much we can do in 1 day

Blackwater Park on the Q701 is siiiiick. When I can stay awake to hear it, that is. smily_headphones1.gif

 

Any word on whether Opeth is done being a metal band? Are they going back to the hard stuff on the next album? I like Heritage, but I'd prefer they make more stuff similar to Blackwater Park and Ghost Reveries and such.

Yeah and Opeth isn't aggressive. My grandma could fall asleep on Opeth. I have a large collection of symphonic metal albums and I can easily fall asleep to any of them. I actually do this when I need to nap during the day, though I use speakers. The music will put me to sleep, and when the playlist ends I suddenly awaken.

 

Next time maybe try some Metalcore...

I'll be honest with you, I haven't even bothered to listen to Heritagebeyersmile.png but the did Damnation and then returned (almost) to their old style, some experimentation is always sign of progress in a band. but I do hope they become "normal" Opeth in the next album hahaha. Nice to hear about B.P in the Q701. but well, if you want to talk some Opeth come over to the metal thread, let's leave this one to solve your problem :D

Interesting, I don't like metalcore. The most aggressive I really like is Opeth.

 I listen to a lot of metalcore and most gives of a fairly light/friendly vibe... most Black/ Death Metal and I find even Opeth have a much darker vibe, which in my book, makes them "heavier"

What am I doing wrong? I want to be able to stay awake for my music, not fall asleep half way through an album.    


I listen to music/audiobooks at work to a)help me keep awake and b)block out a lot of the external noise going on around so I can concentrate better.  Music at home is used to block out external noise so I can drift off to sleep better :)

Metalcore is friendly/light? Trust me, I have an extreme Metal library from Thrash to Death, but Metalcore seems to be the most undirected form of anger and emotion, haha. I guess opinions will always vary, but that post blew my mind.

hahaha well depend what type of metalcore we're talking, Jane Doe by Converge is sometimes considered metalcore, and that's one of the heaviest/ hardest to digest albums I've listened to, but most modern bands that are labeled as metalcore most of the times just don't sound to actually angry to me hahaha, indeed the type of music is, but that people that make the music are not, which then makes the music "friendlier" for me. Like it's "friendlier "to listen to a guy singing about everyday problems than another talking about taking apart bodies, etc.

I have the same problem myself sometimes. I'd try a brighter headphone, such as the DT 990 from beyerdynamic. It's not sibilant, in my opinion. 

 

destroysall.

Whatever you are sitting / lying on is too comfortable. Try something which keeps you in a more upright position.

With me I think it's just being forced to lay on my back that does it. It doesn't matter what I'm listening to, either; eventually, if I'm there long enough, I'll fall asleep. The problem is that I can't stay asleep, since I end up waking up after about an hour feeling like I'm stuck in a casket. Not being able to move my head makes me feel claustrophobic, and that wakes me up.

 

This actually upsets me because I often like using music to try to drift off to sleep, and it always works. But it's only temporary. One of the reasons I'm on an epic quest to find an IEM I like is because maybe if I can move my head I'll be able to stay asleep once the music lulls me off.

I'm a bit of an insomniac so I'm somewhat jealous.
