Sleeping with IEMs. Anyone have experience with this?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I listen to TV shows to get to sleep, and I don't want to disturb my girlfriend, so I wear a pair of IEMs. First it was the Wooduo 2, then the T-Peos H-200, and lately, the HiFiman RE0.

 

They are all super comfortable, and I have no problem getting to sleep.

 

My problem is that when I roll over/roll around in my sleep, I will inevitably roll onto an IEM, and it hurts like hell, waking me up.

 

What should I do?

Not fall asleep with the TV on. It's l in your head that it helps you fall asleep. It actually does the reverse. If you're going to do this, then get Bedphones, (I think they're called) specifically made for this issue.

After trying different models of IEM from Sony, Philips, Bose and Creative, I am settled with Sennheiser CX series for sleeping time. Right now, I am using CX 400 II for this purpose. I listen music from ipod for about one or two hours.

I occasionally face this issue of roll over/roll around during my sleep.

The best for sleeping are the SoundMAGIC PL50, tiny housing.

Rock it sounds R50 similar but have annoying memory wire.

You might also have luck with some of the Westone UM Pro series IEM's, I have the Pro30 which is small and fits very comfortably and flush in the ear.

The Shure series (SE425 and 535) don't wake me up if I fall asleep with them in...and I am bad at tossing and turning in bed.

I prefer the "straight in" cabling instead of the "over the ear style" for sleeping. My Westone 3, Shure 215 and ES3X are all "Over the ear" style.

 

I like the normal "straight in" because they will fall out of my ear eventually, giving me a decent sleep.

 

Bedphones, you say? Hmm.. Might look into this.

 

EDIT: Just looked up some reviews, they are very mixed. Over-the-ear style, too. Might not be the answer. Great suggestion, though!

@White Lotus I have low expectations as to their sound, I've looked at them before and they aren't even $50. They may be good for their price, but the sound obviously isn't the main idea, the shape and comfort when sleeping is. They do look awesome though.
