Drifting asleep to music without disturbing your bedmate or seatmate is as simple as wearing headphones, right? It is until you turn over on your side and the earpieces get smashed into your ears, a not-so-slumber-friendly feeling. The tech world has come up with Bedphones, now in their comfier third generation of featherweight, 1/4-inch-thick foam-covered headphones that you can barely feel that and lie flat against your ears, even when you roll over. Integrated ultra-thin, rubber-coated, flexible-wire ear hooks unobtrusively help fine-tune the fit. The attached 49-inch-long audio cable has an aluminum 31/2 mm jack that fits any standard headphone port. An in-line microphone lets you answer phone calls (if you must), play, pause, and skip music tracks with the push of a single integrated remote button.
Bedphones come in a slim, zippered 31/2-inch-square molded rubber case with internal mesh pockets that contain two pairs of replacement ear foams and a satiny-soft eye mask.
Bedphones Generation 3 On-Ear Sleep Headphones in black or bright blue are $59.95 at www.bedphones.com.
