QuietOn Upgrades Sleep Headphones

Finnish company QuietOn is upgrading its QuietOn 3 sleep earbuds with the new QuietOn 3.1 technology update that adds an improved ANC experience, along with a new, more comfortable eartip material.

The updated earbuds provide a smooth, quick transition to active noise canceling mode. They begin in a transparent hearing mode, but in less than half a minute, QuietOn 3.1 earbuds automatically switch over to active noise canceling mode. This, says the company, creates a calmer and more soothing quiet environment for users. 

“The QuietOn 3.1 update speaks to our company’s commitment to improving the health and wellness of our customers,” says QuietOn Founder Janne Kyllönen. “By continually listening to and incorporating customer feedback into our product design, QuietOn remains hyper-focused on giving people the comfortable and peaceful environment they need to improve their sleep habits.”

Like QuietOn 3, the updated QuietOn 3.1 earbuds are small enough to fit entirely inside the ear, making them the only (ANC) sleep earbuds comfortable enough for everyone, including side sleepers, to wear throughout the night.

QuietOn 3.1’s new eartip material, meanwhile, has an upgraded memory foam formula that is softer and features less bounce back than previous versions. The updated eartips also offer improved acoustic abilities and won’t increase in size if they come into contact with water or sweat. All the improvements make the earbuds more comfortable for users to wear throughout the night. 

Some of the most common noises that interrupt sleep are low-frequency sounds from home appliances, traffic or street noise, snoring partners and noisy neighbors, says QuietOn. The 3.1’s ANC technology eliminates ambient sounds by automatically generating opposite waveforms to nullify the low frequencies, resulting in a much quieter and more peaceful environment for sleep.

“While white, pink and brown noise machines are often used by consumers to help them fall asleep at night, studies suggest that adding new noise on top of existing noise to attempt to cancel it out isn’t always the healthiest option,” continues Kyllönen. “With the QuietOn 3.1 update, we’re looking forward to providing users with a safer and more effective way to get a better night’s sleep.” 

QuietOn 3.1 comes with four different sized eartips so you can choose the best fit as well as a convenient charging carrying case that provides 28 hours of use from a single charge. QuietOn 3.1 also boasts zero electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation due to not featuring any transmitters, receivers, or connectivity options.

QuietOn 3.1 is available for purchase at quieton.com for US$289 USD.
