A good nights sleep can make the difference between having a productive, enjoyable day and a sluggish, irritable one, you can create the most peaceful, soothing sleep routine but throw in a partner that snores or noisy neighbours and all that relaxation goes out the window.
The QuietOn are noise cancelling earbuds designed to help you get a quiet night’s sleep, they can also be used to prevent noise distractions whilst working. These wireless earbuds have a small design with memory phone ear tips in sizes large, medium and small, to provide a tight seal whilst remaining comfortable through the night. These earbuds use both active noise cancellation technology and acoustic noise attenuation to block out the background noise including low frequency noises which foam earplugs can let sneak in. Tackling these low frequencies make them ideal for blocking out snoring, cars blaring out bass, and airplane cabin noises.
They come in a solid, protective case and it’s through this case the earbuds receive the charge. The hinge on the case rattles a little, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to fall apart anytime soon but does make you question the build quality when first handling the device. The battery life lasts for 20hours and takes about 1hour to recharge, those foam tips will ensure the earbuds aren’t going anywhere even for side sleepers and fidgety sleepers. These are the smallest active noise cancelling earbuds in the world, the active noise cancelling uses a microphone to sample the sound, and a speaker to create a phase-shifted sound that cancels the original sound. There is a small button on each ear that can be pressed to activate hearing mode in individual ears, you don’t want to miss out on your partner offering you a morning cuppa. The issue here is you have to press into the ear to switch it off, it might be easier to take it out, but the option is there. It is worth noting that these earbuds cannot be connected to your phone to play your own sleep casts or white noise, it is just the noise cancellation which was a surprise when you look at the price tag. If you need quiet not noise to help you drift off or concentrate and are regularly in situations with lots of noisy distractions these might be worth the investment. RRP £199
