For light sleepers, isolation can be essential to getting a good night’s sleep. This is particularly true if you live in an urban environment, where traffic and construction sounds run late into the night and start well before dawn. Wearing a pair of headphones or earbuds is a great way to block this noise out, but headphones and earbuds can fall off easily during the night while you’re tossing and turning in your sleep.
Eye-mask headphones solve this problem in one of the most ingenious ways we’ve seen. By combining headphones with an eye-mask, not only can they block out extraneous noise, they also block out light. And the headphones stay in place much better than a traditional top of the head pair of headphones. Basically, they’re one of the most powerful tools in a light sleeper’s toolkit. Here, we’ll be looking at three of the highest quality eye-mask headphones on the market.
