Tricks for lying down with circumaural headphones.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I often like to listen to music lying down on my back. The problem is, with a pillow under my head my head sinks down into it, and then the pillow touches the headphones on either side, making so I can't really move my head at all. I find this constraining position annoying. Usually I try to fold one of the corners of a pillow down, and then use it diagonally so that there's double pillow right under my head, and no pillow on the sides, near my ears. This works sometimes, but is hard to get right. I was thinking, this must be a common thing for people who listen to headphones lying down. Another trick I do is to borrow a stuffed animal from one of the kids, and put it under my neck and head. Problem is usually the animals are "in use." Maybe I should get my own! Anyone else have a technique to give their head a bit of movement lying down?

It's not G-rated. PM me for details.

Wow, that's an intriguing post. But somehow uninviting at the same time...;)

 

EDIT: I PM'ed him, and of course regretted it. Maybe someone can give an actual answer.

I find it less of a problem when I use those circumaural headphones of mine with more of an oval shape e.g. sennheiser HD600/650, Mad Dogs, than those with a circular shape e.g. Beyerdynamic DT770

Pillows designed for people who sleep on their bellies are flatter and can be more easily molded to fit the shape. Ikea sells them.
