QuietOn 3.1 Sleep Earbuds


QuietOn is a brand that truly believes that everyone deserves a great night's sleep, and through the third generation of their sleep earbuds, they just might have achieved this! The QuietOn 3.1 Sleep Earbuds are the world's smallest noise-cancellation earbuds committed to providing you with the best possible chance for a peaceful night’s sleep.  

I was so excited to get to try out the QuietOn 3.1 Sleep Earbuds having heard such great things about their noise-cancellation qualities online. Upon opening the earbuds case, I was shocked by just how small they were. Snuggled within the charging case, the two earbuds, which are three times smaller than Apple Airpods Pros™, are designed to be super comfortable and almost unnoticeable whilst wearing them. Of course, I immediately popped them in my ears and was shocked by how much noise they cancelled out. Once you put them in you enter 20 seconds of an almost transparency mode so you can hear your surroundings, and then they enter a full active noise cancellation (ANC) mode. I was surprised at how much of the office noise and traffic outside was cancelled – however, to fully put them to the test I took them home and tried them for sleeping.

For a week I used the QuietOn 3.1 Sleep Earbuds, and they did an excellent job. Now I’m not someone who typically struggles to sleep, but on occasion, my partner's snoring or the sound of traffic outside can lead to me waking throughout the night and struggling to get back to sleep. Every night before bed, the earbuds were simple to pop in and I laid down to sleep. As a side sleeper, the size of the buds was great as they fit perfectly inside my ears to actively reduce outside noise whilst they are still small enough to be barely noticeable and not put extra strain on my ear. I will say if you are not used to sleeping with any earplugs the feeling of having something in your ear can take a little getting used to. However, personally after having them in for a little while I didn’t even notice they were in except for realising that my surroundings had been greatly muted.

The earbuds make this possible using its top-quality ANC technology which works to eliminate low-frequency sounds which most common noise disturbances during sleep stem from. It does this by taking a sample of the noise outside of the earbuds, which through the tiny active electronics inside the earbud, creates a phase-shifted and equalized sounds which in then played through a speaker to cancel out the original outside noise. This technology has been developed through three generations of earbuds by QuietOn to bring you this generation, which in my opinion, provides next-level noise cancellation. The entire week I did not wake up to snoring, a car outside, or even a large rainstorm, which meant I woke up every day feeling refreshed. I will definitely be keeping these earbuds by my bedside and will be sure to pop them in on days when sleep is a struggle or when my partner won’t stop snoring!

A big perk of the QuietOn 3.1 Earbuds is that they provide 28 hours of wear, meaning that I got a few days of wear out of a single charge – this obviously varies in length from person to person, but you are sure to get a decent amount of sleep over a few days before they need recharging. For the size, the fact they have such a long battery life before you need to recharge them is exceptional – they truly are small but powerful!

If you struggle to sleep, or you know someone who is constantly getting woken up during the night (Even if it is from your own snoring) then this is the perfect gift for you or them!
