QuietOn Review

QuietOn, developed in Finland, have created active noise-cancelling earbuds based on the need for quietude.  The product range covers solutions for work safety and hearing protection at work, various industrial and professional uses, as well as for those moments when you just need some serious quiet time to sleep or concentrate.

If you have ever been in elk camp on day two of a week-long hunt, you know the snoring can get to be really intense.  It’s pretty strong on night one but the reality is that on night two after a full day of hard hard hunting, the snoring intensifies dramatically.  I have one friend who has literally gotten another room after spending the night with me on a trip because he couldn’t sleep through my snoring.  I snore a lot less than many people but sometimes I still snore, usually when I am stressed or after a full day of hunting and I am over tired.  I feel bad about it, so when I got the chance to test these out, the first person to get to try them out was my wife. 

These noise-cancelling earbuds for sleep from QuietOn are some of the smallest in the market.  They were built for sleep, however they also work during the day in removing low frequencies like snoring, ambient sounds and airplane cabin noises.  I have yet to test them on a flight due to the lack of travel we are currently experiencing.  The kit for these comes with a variety of foam tips to ensure comfort and custom fit.  We found them to fit very well and deep enough to block out ambient noise and allow the units to work in blocking out all noise.  It’s amazing how much ambient noise gets blocked out from fans, breathing, heating and AC and noise from outside like wind and traffic.   

These come in a case that charges the units, and they offer an exceptional 20-hour battery life.  These units charge in about an hour. I like that the entire kit is in a small case which I can put into my backpack making it ready for use on trips out of the house.  I worked with these out on the patio for a solid hour without getting distracted by the breeze, traffic noise and birds.  These work through a combination of acoustic noise attenuation with advanced noise cancellation.  The wireless earbuds for sleeping switch on automatically once removed from the charging case and are ready for use almost no time at all.   The QuietOn electronic sleep noise cancelling earbuds are not going to block out all sounds, but they will block out enough sounds to allow you to get a solid night of sleep.  Check out these at QuietOn.  I recommend the travel pack because it includes a black eye mask which is perfect for bright hotel rooms when you need a solid nap in the middle of the day.

I did actually try these out in the field as hearing enhancements and I found them quite good at helping me to hear better in the woods while I was turkey hunting. They clip the sound of the shotgun. Check them out.
