    Recently moved into a new temporary place and its in the city, ground floor, near a socially active area so the noise at night has meant I hadn't really had a proper nights sleep for a month. I remembered someone here bought these and decided to say "sod it" and went for it.

    Soooo glad I did. These things are amazing.

    I have a bottle of chloroform that would do the same thing and save you £300 odd

    I just think they’re insanely overpriced.

    :D

    By a stroke of luck, when I looked at the time they had a 40eur discount on Amazon.es which removed the sting a bit :p

    But joking aside, these are very comfortable, block out external noise, have an alarm you can configure via the app, the charging case is a great quality as well (as you would bloody hope so for the money) - it feels like a very complete package.

    And I figure I can use them on night flights, sometimes work sends us to events and we have to share rooms with snoring colleagues etc.

    Either way they're helping me get a solid nights sleep so its worth every penny.

    Without a doubt. Say it outloud to yourself....€240 for earplugs

    It sounds ridiculous to me and I have them. But I don't regret buying them :) - also traditional earplugs stick out of the ear and are uncomfortable when rolling on my side. These you don't notice (well, I don't anyway, and certainly not enough to keep me awake)

    Take away your sleep for a month and lets see how desperate you get :p

    I can’t sleep without noise. I have to get my echo to play city noise in the background otherwise I struggle.

    The app has a bunch of different sounds available, stuff like waves, rustling of leaves with wind, rain etc...I set it to "warm static"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHdHVFP341o - this guy goes through them all.

    Warm Static is at - 5min 25 - the recording he has doesn't do these any justic at all. But there you go :p - I keep it at a low volume and its enough to block the noise and it feel like silence, which is perfect.

    Not bad for a smidge over 25 notes. A1 and U3. Ideal for my Switch.

    Passed a couple of runs with h2testw without a hitch.

    Tbh, I have no real use, but am tempted to try them as apparently they have a no quibbles 30 day trial on at the moment. It looks like you can't play actual music/podcasts through them though? I guess it's not really possible if they need 16 hours battery life. Shame, if they did I'd be interested.

    If you are going to play music then there are a million wireless ear buds on the market. Problem with that is due to the nature of the size of them, no matter what brand, battery life will be limited.
