Most comfortable IEM for sleeping Sub-$50?

  1. Irongrave
    I'm looking for a pair of IEMs to help me sleep.  I'm an extremely light sleeper and it's hard for me to go to sleep if I can hear ANYTHING.
    Note that sound quality is not a huge factor here, I will be essentially just be using them to play brown noise via the Simplynoise app on my iPhone.
    I'm not worried about treble too much, a mid-to-low focused product would probably work best.
    I'm trying to find something $50 or under so I can buy multiple pairs in case one breaks.
    Comfort is the primary factor.  I want something I can literally wear all night and not have sore ears when I wake up.
    I've seen the Shure SE215s and Westone UM1s mentioned for comfort, but those are a bit out of my price range.
    I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions or info anyone could provide.

    I use my VSD1 as my sleeping IEM and it's very comfy. If you wanted less treble you could try the VSD1S. I've heard people talk about the comfort of the soundmagic E10. Also could try the Meelec M6 at about $20.

    Thanks for the recommendations, the M6 looks promising... I think I'm going to give a pair of those a shot.

    I find I'm recommending the Fidue a31s (29.90 usd at Penon) for stuff like this a lot lately. They are seriously tiny....the size of my baby fingernail. Super comfy, and they sound pretty good (bass heavy with soft treble and mids).

    The Sony XBA-1 IEM is now only around $25 on Amazon. It was originally around $80. It is my IEM with the most isolation. If you have a problem with IEM comfort, then look for something that is very ergonomically shaped, such as the Panasonic RP-HJE355. This is also quite small, so it is also great for those with small ears.

    HTC Max300 for about $5 in Aliexpress.
