I knew a guy in high school that disappeared for a few days one summer. Turns out he acquired a big bottle of melatonin from GNC, thought it would give him a tan and took a bunch of them. He slept for almost three days straight.
@jewelshound & @Twiminy the active ingredient is diphenhydramine. You can buy a 1000 capsules of 50 mg bottle online for less than $20.00. How do I know you ask - I use it myself. Makes you very drowsy in the morning though.
Digging through reviews (Which is harder than I thought, I wish I could find more. They’re spread out over many models), it seems there’s an LED on the side which might mean your partner might be slightly annoyed.
I use Bedphones, and even with the long warranty, I have to replace them pretty often. You spend 1/3 of your day with these things on. They’re going to get abused even if you try to be gentle.
“These Gabba Goods Bluetooth” It’s GABA, just one “B”,
gamma-Aminobutyric acid. As I tell my student’s, it is a neurotransmitter that is somewhat like Valium or other benzodiazepines (though with a lot less ooomph than the pills we get from our friendly pharmacist). Well, that was 15 seconds of my life I’ll never get back.
One person says they’re uncomfortable and another says they’re comfortable. I’m ready to buy, but I don’t want something hot on my face when I try to sleep. How are these if you don’t use the bluetooth and want to use them to block out light?
My hearing is getting pretty bad. Too bad my old car doesn’t have Bluetooth. Or these would be perfect for driving and listening to NPR. Of course, it’s not as good without Charlie Rose, Tavis Smiley, Garrison Keilor, … Whatever happened to them, anyway?
Unisom sleeptabs. Not just Unisom. Gotta get the sleeptabs. Active ingredient doxylamine succinate. That’s the stuff from NyQuil. Don’t try to pass the diphenhydramine zzzquil garbage off on me. That stuff will make you schizy.
And stay the hell away from Ambien. Oh, you’ll sleep. But use it long enough and some unfortunate stuff will happen. Trust me. You’ll have some explainin to do eventually. You’ll have good stories but yeah, stay the hell away from it.
I got one of these a while ago. It’s better than I expected in some ways…worse in others. If you sleep on your back it’s quite comfortable. If you sleep on your side don’t bother - the battery/speaker boxes will smash against your ears and it’s not very comfortable. Mine seems to only last up to 6hrs. If it died, no big deal…but instead when it is about to die it starts beeping. Nothing like sudden beeping in your ear 6hrs into sleeping
I bought a pair of these for my wife the last time they were offered. She loves them. They don’t hold a charge for very long, so you’ll have to recharge them every day. But, she sleeps with them on every night.
Definitely avoid if you are a side sleeper, if these are like the ones I ordered last time there is little to no padding on the speakers and they are just a hard rectangle of plastic that will dig into your ear like no other. It can also press the buttons on the other side skipping through whatever you are listening to or randomly calling the last person in your call history.
I picked this up and have been trying it the last few nights. I can’t speak to the battery yet but it lasted 2 nights worth of Netflix listening with a less than one hour charge time out of the box. I’ve just fully charged it as of last night. Bonus: it will charge and play at the same time.
These aren’t the most comfortable things for side sleepers, and the mask isn’t the most breathable but I’m not waking up drenched in sweat like I have with other masks, however I can say this…
These speakers are way better than $12 speakers have any right to be. They have incredible sound separation (AKA “soundstage”) of instruments where to the ears it sounds like each voice in the song is coming from a different spatial location (sounding physically higher, lower, further forward, or behind other instruments in the mix). It doesn’t sound tinny and I was surprised that these have as much bass as they do.
I wish I could get a pair that were a bluetooth headset from this company because they sound that good. I have no issues with recommending this, even as a side sleeper.
