How to Sleep Comfortably In Earbuds

If you are an avid audiophile of any kind, you know that earbud comfort is important. However, earbud design and comfort become especially important if you enjoy wearing them to sleep.

You can’t afford to use the same earbud design that has existed for the past two decades. Not only do these one-size-fits-all earbuds cause friction against your ears. They also rely on boosting frequencies for their noise cancellation, which leads to listening fatigue. 

Buderflys is here to change the narrative that you shouldn’t fall asleep with earbuds in. We understand the pain you feel. That’s why we’ve created a one-of-a-kind design that flexes with your ears instead of a one-size-fits-all design that rubs against them. 

You want a good night’s sleep listening to recorded ocean waves. You want to drift off to white noise at night, you want to actually rise and shine to the sounds of nature when you’re living in a big city. That’s why, unlike other earbud companies, we’ve crafted our unique earbuds for comfort

You might also wonder whether sleeping with earbuds is safe. In this blog, we answer how to sleep in earbuds correctly and how Buderflys makes it easy for you to do so. It describes ways to protect your ears while you slumber in peace. Continue reading to learn how you can consume as much content as you want with Buderflys. 

Why Do My Ears Hurt When I Fall Asleep with Earbuds In?

Most earbud companies talk about the comfort they provide their customers. But this type of marketing scheme has gone unchallenged and unsubstantiated for over two decades. While earbud companies might have been able to claim that they had the most comfortable earbuds on the market ten years ago – back when people only listened to music for thirty minutes at a time – they can’t anymore. People don’t consume audio like they used to. People are listening to content longer and they need an earbud design that reflects their listening habits. 

The earbuds you’ve used for your entire life weren’t designed with your listening habits in mind.  That’s why they cause so much pain when you fall asleep with them in your ear. Earbud companies didn’t care about falling asleep with earbuds back then. They still don’t. Buderflys does. 

How to Sleep Comfortably In Earbuds

For those who enjoy falling asleep to various sounds and songs and those who enjoy the peaceful side of technology, the last thing you need is to wake up in pain. You want to be able to drift off listening to your favorite podcast, that meditation on sleep you were enjoying, or the last episode of whatever series you like. 

In short, you want to be able to fall asleep with earbuds in your ears and you don’t want earbud companies’ lack of concern to cause you pain. The hard, inflexible, plastic design that other earbuds use might keep you comfortable in the short term. But if you want extended comfort, you need Buderflys. Why? Because we have the only earbud design that continuously flexes with your ears instead of waging war against them.

Put Your Ears to Sleep With Buderflys’ Cushy Earbuds

Whenever you chew, talk, or exercise, Buderflys’ proprietary design responds to your ear movement. Our earbuds continuously flex with your ears, becoming more comfortable the longer you wear them. Your current earbuds fall out when you move, itch all the time, and prevent you from continuing your listening experience. That’s because they weren’t designed specifically for your ears. The material they use also rubs against your ears and causes friction. 

When you try to sleep while wearing them, your ears don’t stand a chance… that is, unless you wear Buderflys. When you use Buderflys’ patented/continually moldable, squishy design, your ears enjoy a soft, durable, and comfortable listening solution for your ears, so you can sleep wherever you want, in peace. 

Get a Good Night’s Sleep with Noise Isolation

Because Buderflys has a proprietary fit, our earbuds don’t rely on noise tricks to keep your ears safe while you slumber. You don’t have to worry about damaging your ears with Buderflys because they don’t boost bass frequencies to make the sound louder and they don’t damage your ears. You can sleep peacefully with Buderflys because you won’t have to deal with the pain and discomfort that occurs when boosted frequencies constantly bombard your ears. 

Our brains naturally listen to these frequencies, but listening to them for too long isn’t normal (especially when you’re trying to sleep) and can end up causing fatigue. You’re already tired when you put earbuds in to get a quiet night. You don’t need the constant frequencies to hinder you. With our patented squishy earbud design, you get the calm, even noise isolation you need to make you drowsy and put you to sleep —a sound signature that allows for clear, nuanced sound throughout the entire spectrum.

Specialized Design to Aid Sleep

We saw that there was an issue with earbud design for people trying to sleep. We couldn’t just sit and watch people continuing to damage their ears. That’s why we designed an earbud design with an even sound balance and unique design. Buderflys keeps the sleeper in mind as well as the avid listener. No matter where you are, you should be able to tune everything out without damaging your ears. 

With advanced noise isolation that’s unique to Buderflys, your content will bleed with your environment. So, no matter where you are, our earbuds will ensure you can get a good night’s sleep. Let’s say you want to take a nap on an airplane; you shouldn’t be held back by the potential ear pain you feel after leaving earbuds in for too long. With Buderflys, there’s no such thing as too long. 

Is It Safe to Sleep with Earbuds In?

The answer to this question depends on a multitude of factors. It will depend on whether you have earbuds that fit you properly, how loud you have your content playing, and whether you’re using earbuds designed specifically for comfort and  sleeping. Buderflys has taken these factors into consideration and responded. You get the following benefits when you use Buderflys earbuds designed for sleeping. 

  • The fit of the earbud is designed to flex with your ears, so shifting positions while you sleep won’t be a problem. 
  • Our earbuds pad the ears instead of punishing them. 
  • The EQ we use evens the sound out so your ear doesn’t get fatigued from unbalanced bass or mids. 

While Buderflys solves some of the problems people face with their earbuds, there are certain factors they can’t. How loud your volume is, your sleep position, and the type of content you listen to will all affect whether it is safe to listen with earbuds while you sleep. Buderflys controls all that it can when it comes to making the most comfortable earbud on the market for sleeping. You have to do the rest. 

Why Should You Fall Asleep with Earbuds In?

Can listening with Buderflys earbuds actually improve your sleep? There are a few studies that suggest it can. First, extensive research shows that music is a low-cost, low-risk, non-pharmacological sleep aid tool

Relaxing music can reduce your heart rate and help increase the production of hormones that aid in sleep. Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder can both hinder how well you sleep. Multiple studies show that music can reduce symptoms of these conditions and promote healthy sleeping patterns. Additionally, because music can stimulate serotonin, which is a “happy” chemical, it can improve your sleeping patterns. 

White noise describes a collection of all audible frequencies that plays in a random order at the same amplitude. Listening to white noise while falling asleep can deepen your sleep and improve the overall quality. It can also serve as an effective distraction from any daytime thoughts playing through your head when you try to go to sleep. Research conducted by the Journal of Caring Sciences showed that the use of white noise is recommended to mask environmental noise, improve sleep, and maintain sleep in the coronary care unit where it was conducted.

All of this research goes to show that earbuds can be safe for sleeping. But it also reveals the importance of earbuds that fit properly into your ear and help you avoid ear pain. To sleep well while wearing earbuds you need earbuds made from squishy material that flexes to your ears. Your earbuds need to act like pillows for your ears. They also shouldn’t boost frequencies or else your ear will quickly wear out while you sleep. 

At Buderflys, we understand the feeling of a good night’s sleep after dozing off to your favorite podcast, white noise, or songs of the whale. You should be able to immerse yourself in that sound and not have to worry about whether you will wake up in the morning with an earache. Our proprietary earbud design ensures your ears are always comfortable. Whether you’re on a plane, in bed, or dozing off to your favorite audiobook with earbuds, Buderflys provides a restful experience you simply won’t find elsewhere.
