Active Noise-Cancelling Earplugs

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 ( 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' ( 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.

  • IN fact I was so interested in these that I just emailed them, to ask them if they have had any feedback from autistic users, and whether they are effective in reducing sensory overload. When I get a reply, I'll post again to let you know what they say!
