Bedphones: Wear this Headset for Better Sleep

By Rachel Ramsey, TMCnet Web Editor

Sometimes the sounds from your mp3 player or mobile device would be nice to fall asleep to. The problem is, most headphones are uncomfortable to sleep with, get in the way, or start to cause headaches. Bedphones are on-ear headphone designed to be as thin as possible and specifically for use in bed.  

Used in conjunction with its accompanying app, Bedphones Music Controller, users can drift off to sleep comfortably.The app, for Android (News - Alert) devices, comes with three modes: basic mode, timer mode, and smart mode. Basic mode turns the phone into a big play/pause button, timer mode sets a timer for when users want their music to shut off and smart mode actually shuts the app down by detecting how much a user is moving.

Bedphones are designed so there is the least amount of pressure on the ears. Also, they are compatible with iPhones, iPods, Droids, and all other mobile phones and mp3 players with a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The light and comfortable headphones make not only sleeping better, but are also ideal for traveling and are adjustable to fit tightly for physical activity.The headphones are not, however, noise-cancelling or Bluetooth enabled, because both features would make Bedphones larger and uncomfortable.Bedphones are available for $30 while the app for Android is free. Also, the app is compatible with any type of headphones, but work best when paired with Bedphones.

In recent news, Wind River (News - Alert), a provider of embedded multi-core solutions and mobile software, introduced a new Android test development. Wind River has been offering platforms for Android for some time now, however, the advanced kit is unique since it is designed to assist in the validation of the device user experience by reproducing human interactions to test user interfaces.
