Dirt cheap small IEMs for sleeping?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi everybody,

 

Recently I have had trouble with sleeping in my dorm, and as a result I have taken to using white noise for sleeping. Still, wearing a Atrio M5 to sleep is not be the most comfortable solution around... And is even dangerous to my favorite IEM.

 

My question is: can you suggest a pair of dirt cheap IEM (~$10) for sleeping? I want it to be as small as possible, and also doesn't protrude too much from the side so that I can sleep on my side with it on comfortably. Sound quality can be crappy, I don't care as I will only be listening to wind noise and raindrops. It's the size that matters.

 

Thanks!

I heard that the Philips SHE3528 or something like that is supposed to be uber comfy for sleeping.

Due to freak ears, anything will usually get swallowed up by my monsterous conchas. Even the $8.11 Mono 8320s. But from what I hear from my normie friends, the crappy Philips mentioned do quite well. In fact http://www.amazon.com/Philips-SHE6000-28-Surround-Headphones/dp/B003BT6BL4/ref=pd_sim_e_1 these crappy Philips do quite well as well. Something bulbous like say, the Marshmellows probably won't work as well. 

 

Might also want to make sure the suckers don't have a lot of driver flex if you're a tosser-and-turner in bed. I've been woken up by crappy driver flex before and it isn't fun.

These have to be the smallest earphones i've ever used, they sound good and are dirt cheap.
