An unusual question!

What would be a good (cheap) headphone to wear when you are going to bed? you know for a little relaxation after a tiring day, before you fall asleep.

KSC-75 seems close, but, I am afraid that they will break easily. Some thing like a earbud would be nice, but, I guess they might be a little uncomfortable.

Any suggestion?

Thanks.

I use the Shure E2c in bed...But the E3 is more comfortable because it doesnt protrude out of the ears quite as much.

Why go cheap in-ear for a bed headphone? I guess I can fall asleep with my head straight on my pillow, but I find my best listening is right before I go to sleep and first thing in the morning.

I've fallen asleep with music playing in the Qualia 010, and when you wake up, the music is a godlike, unworldly experience. Dunno if I can recommend it from a hearing protection perspective (I listen loud...)

But even prior to that, I really enjoyed the HD600 in this application. I've even slept with Pinky's RS-1 and PS-1 (gasp!)

Best regards,

-Jason

The E4c's don't protrude too much but the UM2's and E5's look like they may be contoured moreso to the ear and therefore more comfortable in bed. I would assume that custom mold headphone like Sensaphonics would be the ultimate in comfort though.

MJG beat me to the punch - I was going to say this - MS-1 optional.
