Sleep phones

#1
Good afternoon
Has anyone tried sleep phones or any similar product? They plug into an iPod or IPad, and can be used with soft music or a white noise app ( ocean waves, fan, rain, etc). Seems like an ideal solution for an extremely light sleeper like myself. Would appreciate any feedback as I consider ordering.... thx

Wouldn't that deplete the battery for the next day? Although -- you could take a small power bank and recharge it in your lodging at night, and then use it to recharge your phone the next day.

I sleep all night with audio books playing on my iPhone. I pick something boring that makes me sleep. And as davebugg suggests I charge my power bank at night.

I use my earbuds and listen to podcasts to drift off to sleep. I can set a timer on my podcast app, so it doesn't use much battery. And I'm almost always able to find a bed close enough to a power outlet to keep charged.

I use an app called White Noise (I have occasional tinnitus). It’s a free app and has lots of sounds from rain on rooftops, babbling brooks and gentle wind chimes (my favourite) right through to actual white noise. You can buy ‘premium’ sounds on it but I’ve been using it for a long time with just the free ones. Has a timer you can set to switch off. Can recommend this. Mary

I do the same thing- podcasts to drift off to sleep and also cover the ringing sound of tinitus! The power however... will need some luck there.

I second the "white noise" app. I also use it, and it's great for drowning out halfway noise when I'm at work too. I think it works with Android phones as well as iOS.

I am a very light sleeper as well and have tried different ear plugs but I found them all uncomfortable and didn’t stop the noise. Before my last walk I bought some Bose ear buds, the buds are silicon, you get three different sizes and are very comfortable which meant I can get a good nights sleep. I make sure I recharge them on arrival at my next nights accommodation. I use them with white noise or you can run them through your phone for music. I also use an eye mask to block out those early morning lights. They are now an essential part of my kit.

I used them on 3 caminos. I take an IPODfor nights and IPhone for days so no battery problems

Thanks, just purchased through amazon. We are staying in private rooms so charging shouldn’t be an issue, my roommate is a heavy snorer and I a light sleeper...
