Soundoff earplugs review for snoring test results ear and throat pain on one side

Most of the anti-snoring devices on the market focus on the snorer. Mouthpieces help keep airways open. Nasal strips sometimes help. Special pillows inflate to change sleep angles. Many of these aids can help, but we continue to seek out snoring solutions because the alternative is sleepless nights punctuated by frustrating noise.

In a move of equal parts desperation and innovation, SoundOff earbuds were created by the company founder after having to rent a hotel room to escape from her husband’s snoring. This technologically advanced solution combines all the best elements attempted by sleeping partners. The revolutionary product uses “pink noise” to mask the sounds of snoring.

Each earbud has independent on/off switches and six-levels of volume controls. A quick one-hour charge lasts for 10-20 hours of use, depending on the volume setting.

A daily recharge will have them ready to give you a peaceful night, every night.

Many people have heard of “white noise.” White noise is sound which has the same intensity throughout the range humans can hear—20 to 20,000 hertz. It is analogous to white light, which contains the full range of visible frequencies of light, which human eyes and brains interpret as white light.

Research indicates that while both white and pink noise can help with sleeping difficulty by masking other sounds, pink noise provides unique memory building benefits and increases the duration of deep sleep. Pink noise can lead to more restful sleep, reduce the time needed to fall asleep, and synchronize brain waves during sleep, which all contribute to a better night’s rest.

Most people are familiar with the sound produced by a fan, or the sound of rain falling steadily on a roof. These are both examples of pink noise, as are the sound that wind makes as it moves through trees, and the relaxing burbling of a brook falling over rocks. One of the major appeals of pink noise to humans is that it mimics the sounds of nature.

Unlike noise-canceling devices, such as headphones, the technology used for noise masking covers up the undesired sound. SnoreOff earbuds fill the sleeper’s ears with pink noise, masking the snoring and allowing uninterrupted sleep. Because pink noise has a stronger set of octaves at the lower frequencies in which snoring exists, the pink noise can mask the matching frequencies.

A standard solution tried by partners of snorers is to use earplugs. While the earplugs do stop the direct transmission of sound into the ear, thus lowering the volume, the sound is also transmitted through the cartilage. From there, the vibrations transmit to the bone and are conducted to the middle and inner ear. Bone conduction allows the sound to penetrate the otherwise plugged ear.

SoundOff earbuds are useful in a variety of ways. One of the most medically promising uses is the reduction of the symptoms of tinnitus, a debilitating chronic audiological and neurological condition. SoundOff has had promising results in providing relief for sufferers of the aggravating condition.

Sleepers might otherwise struggle through a night in a noisy hotel near a highway, or suffer on a redeye flight. Sometimes sleeping in a new bed is difficult, and sleeping in planes can be impossible. But SoundOff masks all exterior noises and provides you with the rest you need to be productive and accomplished the next day.

Most users will have to use trial and error to find the correct volume settings. The reviewer noted that level 3 worked to muffle the sound of his wife’s snoring. The lowest setting typically works to block snoring from a person in another room.

The customer reviews at SoundOff’s website are overwhelmingly positive. Customers note a variety of successful uses of the product and indicate how appreciative they are for the innovative solution. One reviewer notes that the pink noise helped relax her brain because she had difficulty getting to sleep. Another notes SoundOff’s success at blocking highway noise during summer when sleeping with the windows open. A frequent traveler appreciated the ability to control the noise level regardless of location.
