Best Soundproof Earmuffs for Sleeping Reviews

Best Seller: Sleep Headphones Bluetooth Headband, Upgrade Soft Sleeping Wireless Music Sport Headbands, Long Time Play Sleeping Headsets with Built-in Speakers Perfect for Workout, Running, Yoga (Black)

  • 【Longer Service Time and High-quality Playback】Winonly sleep headphones offer an upgraded usb chargeable battery, charge about 2-2.5...
  • 【Super Soft and Breathable Headband 】:Winonly Bluetooth Headband sleep headphone is extremely soft and lightweight, which is made of...

WINONLY is the brand on our list with a meaningful presence online and has been around in one form or another for 20 years, though the current iteration is significantly more recent. Interestingly, WINONLY actually specializes more in household fixtures than anything else but is branching out into general consumer goods.

That said, this lack of focus does not seem to impede the WINONLY soundproof earmuffs for sleeping which helps block out disruptive noise with ¼” speakers. The fact that the speakers are so small as well as covered in foam also helps ensure that they feel more comfortable when lying on your side.

To make sure that you do not have to worry about the WINONLY soundproof earmuffs’ fit, the model employs elastic to keep them in place. These soundproof earmuffs then combine the elastic bands with a spandex base material to make them perfect for athletic use as well.

Keep in mind, the spandex material not only keeps the speakers in place but it also makes the WINONLY soundproof earmuffs more breathable. That said, those with larger heads may not find these soundproof earmuffs the most comfortable as the snug fit can be a bit too tight.

On the other hand, the WINONLY soundproof earmuffs come with the best all-around specs that we encountered starting with a maximum range of up to 65’. As if that were not enough, these soundproof earmuffs also tie for the longest runtime we saw at 10 hours, though this may be necessary for a good night’s rest.

This is because the WINONLY soundproof earmuffs, like many other products in this class, have a low power indicator that can wake you up– were it not for the long runtime. To make sure that these soundproof earmuffs remain comfortable regardless of your sleeping position, the control panel and electronics are positioned on the forehead.

Sleep Headphones Bluetooth Headband,Upgrage Soft Sleeping Wireless Music Sport Headbands, Long Time Play Sleeping Headsets with Built in Speakers Perfect for Workout, Running, Yoga (Black)

Features

  • Plays the entire night with a 10 hour runtime
  • Maintains a great connection of out to 45’ to 65’
  • Keeps a secure wireless connection with 5.0 Bluetooth
  • Ready for every night with only a 2 to 2 ½ hour charge time
  • Made of spandex for a snug, athletic fit

Verdict
The WINONLY soundproof earmuffs for sleeping come with the best specs on our list including extremely thin ¼” speakers to prevent any unwanted noise from rousing you in your sleep. Aside from the fact that you can use these earmuffs for athletics activities as well, the 10-hour runtime prevents the indicator from waking you prematurely.

Pros

  • Has a 10 hr runtime
  • Has a 45’ to 65’ range
  • Is one-size fits all
  • Good for athletics

Cons

  • Not the most comfortable
  • Not the easiest to use

Though they do not have much of an online presence, Blulu is actually the second-most experienced company on our list at half a decade. While the company focuses more on wearable products than anything else, it also makes plenty of odds and ends with surprisingly few electronics.

Thankfully, the Blulu soundproof earmuffs for sleeping take its cues from other popular products in the market and come with 2” x ⅖” speakers that are large enough to fit over the ears but thin enough to sleep on comfortably. These soundproof earmuffs also feature eye pads to block out light and cover all possible sleep disruptions you might face.

While the eye pads are great at preventing light from getting in, the Blulu soundproof earmuffs use foam so that they are also comfortable without pushing on your eyes. Keep in mind, these soundproof earmuffs are meant for more casual purposes and use a velcro strap so you can determine the proper fit.

This has the advantage of making the Blulu soundproof earmuffs fit pretty much any size head without pushing too tightly, but it can also lead to a looser fit that comes off in the middle of the night if you toss and turn. To help prevent the soundproof earmuffs from coming off of your head, the main body is made of spandex.

While the spandex material does not make the Blulu soundproof earmuffs ideal for use in athletic situations, it does increase the breathability for better airflow. These soundproof earmuffs are another model that comes with a low power indicator, but their 10-hour runtime ties for the longest and should provide plenty of battery life for restful sleep.

Unfortunately, the same may not be said for those who sleep with a partner in the room as the Blulu soundproof earmuffs also feature an LED indicator which can distract others– though not you. Still, these soundproof earmuffs have the second-best range as well at 45’ and are perfect for those who want a heavier feeling with their mask.

Features

  • Plays the entire night with a 10 hour runtime
  • Maintains a great connection of out to 45’
  • Keeps a secure wireless connection with 5.0 Bluetooth
  • Ready for every night with only a 2 to 2 ½ hour charge time
  • Made of foam and spandex for good comfort

Verdict
The Blulu soundproof earmuffs for sleeping have some of the best specs on our list with the thinnest speakers to help block out unwanted noise from disturbing your rest. Its extremely long runtime also helps ensure that you will likely already be awake before it runs out of power and projects its low power indicator.

Pros

  • Has eye pads
  • Has a 10 hr runtime
  • Is more comfortable
  • Has an adjust size

Cons

  • Has dual indicators
  • Not the best fit

Like most of the companies on our list, Perytong does not have much of an online presence but is also one of the least experienced, founded a couple of years ago. On the other hand, this is one of the few companies that specialize in soundproof earmuffs for sleeping with this being their only product.

As a newer company, it seems as though the Perytong soundproof earmuffs for sleeping copied its approach from some competitors like including extremely thin ¼” speakers to block out noise. However, these soundproof earmuffs also come with a low price tag for the market to properly compete.

It is worth noting that the Perytong soundproof earmuffs pay for that lower price with some of the lowest specs on our list. For starters, these soundproof earmuffs have the shortest runtime we encountered at only 8 hours which is long enough for some people, but those who like to sleep in will be disappointed.

Things get a bit trickier when you consider that the Perytong soundproof earmuffs also come with a low power indicator which means that you are more likely to be woken up than with some competitors. While suitable for most casual tasks, these soundproof earmuffs have a maximum range of 33’ and require the connected smart device to stay closer than our top picks.

Still, the Perytong soundproof earmuffs are a good budget option for athletic users as they feature an elastic band that helps keep everything in place with a snug fit. Keying on the athletic versatility, these soundproof earmuffs also include a mesh liner that, when combined with the base spandex material, provides the best breathability.

While all of these athletic features increase the Perytong soundproof earmuffs’ versatility, they sit a bit heavier than other athletic models at 2 ⅘ oz. Still, they should be more than comfortable enough for most people, especially side-sleepers, as the control panel sits on the forehead instead of the side.

Sleep Headphones Wireless, Perytong Bluetooth Sports Headband Headphones with Ultra-Thin HD Stereo Speakers Perfect for Sleeping,Workout,Jogging,Yoga,Insomnia, Air Travel, Meditation

Features

  • Plays the entire night with an 8 hour runtime
  • Maintains a good connection of out to 33’
  • Keeps a secure wireless connection with 5.0 Bluetooth
  • Ready for every night with only a 2 to 2 ½ hour charge time
  • Made of mesh and spandex for a good comfort

Verdict
The Perytong blocks out noise with an incredibly thin ¼” speaker making it one of the more comfortable soundproof earmuffs for sleeping that also works well for athletics too. However, when you combine the relatively short runtime with the indicator, you get a model that may wake you up from a deep sleep.

Pros

  • Good for athletics
  • Is more breathable
  • Is one-size fits all
  • Is less expensive

Cons

  • Has a low battery indicator
  • Has a shorter runtime

Joseche continues the trend of companies with little to no online presence, but it has a bit more experience than some with almost a half of decade under its belt. The company does not specialize in anything in particular, though it favors electronics and smart device accessories over other products.

The Joseche soundproof earmuffs for sleeping are a bit of a mixed bag in the sense that they come with small speakers that will work well to block out unwanted noise– for you. However, if you sleep with a partner in the room, they may find that the audio leaks out and keeps them awake instead.

Still, one of the better qualities of the Joseche soundproof earmuffs is that you do not have to worry about a low power indicator waking you up in the middle of the night. On the other hand, this might be a necessary absence as these soundproof earmuffs are tied for the shortest runtime on our list at only 8 hours.

The comfort of the Joseche soundproof earmuffs is also a bit hit or miss as you can adjust the fit with a velcro strap that makes sure they fit any size head. Unfortunately, these soundproof earmuffs place the electronics along the right side near the temple which limits side-sleepers’ options when going to sleep.

However, the comfort finds further purchase with a combination of polyester and cotton materials that feels softer against the skin than spandex. These materials also form a good balance by being breathable for hotter environments but insulated for cooler ones, making them comfortable regardless of the temperature.

Since the Joseche soundproof earmuffs are meant for casual use, the 3 ⅖ oz weight is not an issue and may be more comfortable for those who prefer a bit of weight when they sleep. That said, make sure that you keep your connected smart device close as the 33’ range ties for the shortest on our list.

Sleep Headphones Bluetooth Eye Mask,ZesGood 3D Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Sleep Mask,Washable Adjustable Travel Music Handsfree Sleeping Headset with Built-in HD Speaker and Micro for Side Sleepers

Features

  • Plays the entire night with an 8 hour runtime
  • Maintains a good connection of out to 33’
  • Keeps a secure wireless connection with 5.0 Bluetooth
  • Ready for every night with only a 2 to 2 ½ hour charge time
  • Made of polyester and cotton for good comfort

Verdict
On the surface, the Joseche performs as well for blocking out noise as any of its competitors, but it does not work as well for that purpose if you sleep in the same room with someone else as the audio leaks out. This is also not an ideal pair of soundproof earmuffs for sleeping if you sleep on your side due to the placement of the electronics.

Pros

  • Has an adjust size
  • Has a good fit
  • Has soft fabric
  • No indicator noise

Cons

  • Iffy electronics placement
  • Audio leaks out

ZesGood may not have much of an internet presence, but have a better handle on the small details with almost half a decade of experience. Surprisingly, ZesGood is also one of the few companies on our list to specialize in electronics, though they do not specialize in soundproof earmuffs exclusively.

The ZesGood soundproof earmuffs for sleeping check many of the boxes you look for in an all-around sleep mask including thin speakers that block out disruptive noise. To make sure that you do not wake up in the middle of the night, these soundproof earmuffs also lack a low power indicator.

Of course, like many other soundproof earmuffs that lack a low power indicator, the ZesGoods have a shorter runtime between 8 to 9 hours. Keeping on the sleep aid train, the ZesGood soundproof earmuffs are the second product on our list that comes with eye pads to reduce light from seeping into the mask.

This works reasonably well thanks to an adjustable velcro strap that allows you to find the right fit regardless of the size of your head. In terms of general comfort, the ZesGood soundproof earmuffs are made out of cotton– including the eye pads– which is somewhat breathable and somewhat insulated.

You will not be able to use the ZesGood soundproof earmuffs for anything other than casual purposes with a 33’ range, so keep your connected smart device close. One interesting feature of these soundproof earmuffs is a 3.5 mm aux port which allows you to play music without draining the battery.

However, you should not use this feature while sleeping as you can wrap the cord around you or pull the connected smart device off of its spot.

Sleep Headphones Bluetooth Eye Mask, Joseche Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Headphones Music Travel Sleeping Headphones Handsfree Sleeping Mask with Built-in Speakers Microphone Washable (Black)

Features

  • Plays the entire night with an 8 to 9 hour runtime
  • Maintains a good connection of out to 33’
  • Keeps a secure wireless connection with 5.0 Bluetooth
  • Ready for every night with only a 2 to 2 ½ hour charge time
  • Made of cotton for a good comfort

Verdict
Like the other soundproof earmuffs for sleeping, the ZesGood comes with thin speakers to block out unwanted noise, but it is also the only other option that comes with eye pads to block out light as well. Though it has a shorter runtime and range than our best options, it is the only model that can connect via a 3.5 mm aux cord too.

Pros

  • Has eye pads
  • Has an adjust size
  • Has a 3.5 mm aux port
  • Has a snug fit

Cons

  • Has a shorter runtime
  • Has a shorter range

Best Soundproof Earmuffs for Sleeping Buying Guide

Speakers

The speakers of soundproof earmuffs for sleeping end up being less important than you might think since audio fidelity is rarely the primary concern here. Instead, the main reason for including speakers in the first place is to block out unwanted noise without worrying about bulky ear cups being uncomfortable while you sleep.

In this instance, the main thing you need to consider with the speakers is how comfortable they feel while you rest on your side which comes down to two factors. The first thing to consider is the size of the speakers which should be large enough in diameter but thin. Second, you want the speakers to be padded so they are comfortable to lie on.

Runtime

Depending on your sleep schedule and other factors, this might end up being one of the more important factors when choosing soundproof earmuffs for sleeping. One of the main reasons for this is that many soundproof earmuffs have a low power indicator, sometimes without the ability to control the indicator’s volume.

As such, if you have a pair of soundproof earmuffs with a shorter runtime, the low power indicator may wake you up in the middle of the night. A longer runtime is also important for versatility if you use the soundproof earmuffs in other contexts to avoid having to recharge them in the middle of an activity.

Connectivity

The connectivity is not necessarily the most important quality to look for in soundproof earmuffs for sleeping, but you want to make sure that it at least meets a minimum standard. Similar to the low power indicator, some soundproof earmuffs have a connected and disconnected indicator.

If the soundproof earmuffs cannot stay connected consistently, then you are liable to hear this indicator go off randomly while trying to sleep. The good news is that all of the soundproof earmuffs on our list use the high-quality Bluetooth 5.0 protocol which is one of the best available.

Charge Time

This factor is more or less important depending on how you use your soundproof earmuffs for sleeping and how well you maintain its charge. For those who use the product as intended, you will likely need to recharge the soundproof earmuffs every day and should get into a habit of recharging it every morning when you wake up.

However, for those who use their soundproof earmuffs for other purposes, especially those who wear them while participating in an athletic activity, you want to make sure they recharge quickly enough to serve multiple roles. Thankfully, all of the soundproof earmuffs on our list have a charge time between 2 to 2 ½ hours which should be short enough for versatile use.

Range

As mentioned prior in the connectivity section, the range of your soundproof earmuffs for sleeping can be important, but it should not be considered one of the primary qualities. Of course, if you keep your smart device farther away when you sleep, this aspect becomes more important.

Even though all of the soundproof earmuffs on our list use the same Bluetooth protocol for wireless transmission, they have different ranges. It is also worth noting that range often correlates to signal strength which can allow the connection to remain stable through obstacles or in areas with interference.

Fit

Given that soundproof earmuffs for sleeping will need to stay in place throughout the night to be most effective, fit is a fairly important aspect to consider. However, the fit is not a simple matter as you need to make sure that not only do the soundproof earmuffs stay on your face but do not cause discomfort either.

The two main methods soundproof earmuffs employ to provide a good fit are elastic bands or adjustable straps with pros and cons for each. Elastic bands provide a more secure fit that may be uncomfortable depending on its tightness while straps are less secure but also less likely to squeeze too tightly.

Comfort

The comfort of soundproof earmuffs for sleeping is more complex than many of the other features as it includes multiple features on this list and more. For example, the fit of the soundproof earmuffs will inherently impact how comfortable they are to wear as will the size and placement of the electronics.

On top of that, the materials will also influence your soundproof earmuffs’ comfort in terms of how soft and supple they are. Beyond the textural qualities of the materials, the layering system and thickness of materials can also make the soundproof earmuffs breathe more or less and feel lighter or heavier on your face.

Materials

Depending on the secondary purpose of soundproof earmuffs for sleeping, they may be made of a few different materials that confer various benefits and drawbacks. Those soundproof earmuffs that can be used for athletic purposes will almost always use spandex and elastic to provide a snug fit that stays in place while moving.

For more casual purposes, soundproof earmuffs are liable to employ either cotton or polyester as their primary material given that they breathe well while also feeling comfortable against your skin. Some soundproof earmuffs also include foam for extra padding and comfort or mesh for better breathability.

FAQ’s

What Makes Sleeping Ear Muffs Sound Proof?

When it comes to the term “soundproof earmuffs for sleeping,” it should be understood as a bit of a misnomer as the earmuffs are not technically soundproof in that they do not block out external sounds. While there are “true” soundproof earmuffs that block out external sounds, they are not compact and comfortable enough to wear while sleeping.

As such, soundproof earmuffs for sleeping do not block out unwanted external sound as much as they mask it with an alternative, more pleasing sound. This means that if you are the kind of person who needs total silence to get to sleep, your options remain limited outside of noise-canceling headphones that will likely be uncomfortable to wear throughout the night.

However, if you can sleep with relaxing audio or adapt to do so, soundproof earmuffs for sleeping come with thin speakers positioned over your ears to block out unwanted noise. It is worth noting that choosing the right audio, like white noise or a gentle melody, will not only block out disruptive noise but can even lull you to sleep quicker and easier than absolute silence.

What Other Sleeping Considerations Should They Include?

Though soundproof earmuffs for sleeping tend to focus more on preventing unwanted noise from keeping you awake, some manufacturers take that a step further to help you slumber in other ways. Keep in mind, loud, disruptive noise is often not the only distraction that keeps people from getting to sleep.

While pretty much every pair of soundproof earmuffs for sleeping will use an eye mask design to also block out light, some models feature a 3D design that employs eye pads to make sure that no light reaches you. Of course, whether your soundproof earmuffs include eye pads or not, the fit will also play an important role in blocking out light.

Finally, one aspect that can be a bit tricky to handle is a pair of soundproof earmuffs for sleeping that also include a low power indicator which may wake you up if it goes off in the middle of your rest. While some brands remove this indicator, they also tend to have the shortest runtimes which then reduces the amount of time they block out external noise.

What to Look For?

Outside of the primary sleep aids that soundproof earmuffs for sleeping tend to provide, there are a handful of additional features that are more or less important depending on how you intend to use them. Since these soundproof earmuffs are worn for extended periods, making sure that they are comfortable to wear is important but depends as much on your sleeping position as anything else.

The comfort of your soundproof earmuffs hinges on a couple of factors but the size and position of the electronics are often one of the more relevant. Electronics positioned on the side of the earmuffs will inherently restrict if you can comfortably sleep on your side and which side you can sleep on.

Another aspect of comfort that can come into play is the fit of the soundproof earmuffs which changes based on how it secures with straps and elastic being the most common. While elastic provides the best fit and even offers some versatility for athletic use, it can also be a bit uncomfortable if too tight.

Conclusion

In the end, the best soundproof earmuffs for sleeping will depend on your sleep cycles, your sleeping position, and how you plan to use the product. If you want to use your soundproof earmuffs for other purposes, especially athletic ones, the WINONLY soundproof earmuffs are your best bet.

If you need a pair of soundproof earmuffs to block out not only the sound but the light as well while remaining comfortable, you should look at the Blulu soundproof earmuffs. For those who want to find a great deal without sacrificing solid quality and versatility, the Perytong soundproof earmuffs are right up your alley.

Those who may not always keep their soundproof earmuffs charged and sleep on their back will appreciate the Joseche’s lack of a low power indicator. Finally, to get a little bit of everything without getting the best of anything with some extra bells and whistles on the side, the ZesGood is a solid option.
