Whilst continuing my search for ways to decrease the noise I hear in today's (selfish) society, I came across QuietOn active noise-cancelling earplugs (https://quieton.com/). Does anyone on the forum own a pair? If so, please post a review in reply to this posting.
I know Bose are working on a pair of 'sleepbuds' (https://www.bose.com/en_us/better_with_bose/better_sleep.html) which take a different approach to QuietOn and are aimed at giving users better sleep. Unfortunately, the 'sleepbuds' will not be available until later this year.
I have a pair of Bose noise-cancelling headphones for indoor use and a set of 3M Peltor X5A ear defenders for general use, however, I cannot easily sleep in either.
I like active noise-cancelling because it produces a quieter environment than passive options, although I am also looking at a passive options (e.g. wax earplugs) for general use and for sleeping.
Any related comments will be much appreciated. Thank you.
Thank you very much letting know!
Noises are one of my biggest problem.
These would help me a lot!
Interesting, how much are they going to cost?
Amazon have five reviews for these earplugs - https://www.amazon.co.uk/QuietOn-Active-Noise-Cancelling-Plugs-white/dp/B071NSK5CY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518627398&sr=8-1&keywords=QUIETON+ACTIVE+NOISE+CANCELLING+EARPLUGS
One user did say after a longer period of continuous usage, she says that some sort of whizzing sound can be heard ,
I have to say that they are quite expensive.
I will have to wait for the price to go down.
Having read the review mentioning a whizzing sound, it does not seem possible to say with certainty what caused the sound. The reviewer states "I am pretty sure that this is a side effect of active noise cancellation" but it is unclear what they mean. The duration of "a longer period of continuous usage" is also unclear.
Some people can hear a very low white noise type of sound using active noise cancellation and perhaps that is what is referred to.
