There are a shocking number of choices available for headphones right now — over the ear, in-ear, true wireless, fitted for weird ears, fitted for normal ears, fitted for ears you wish were weirder — as I said, there are a lot of options.

SleepPhones Wireless Bluetooth Sleep Headphones Review: Back & Stomach Sleepers Will Love These

There are many nights when I enjoy winding down by listening to music in bed. Most of the true wireless earphones I have worked just fine initially, but the hard material that houses the electronics eventually becomes uncomfortable when leaning on a pillow. That’s where the SleepPhones Wireless Bluetooth Sleep Headphones come in. SleepPhones were designed for bedtime music. But are they comfortable?

Google Pixel Buds A-Series Review: Rich Sound for Less

As an avid Pixel phone user, I was excited that Google developed its own earbuds. I sat out on their first iteration of the true wireless version but jumped in with the Google Pixel Buds A-Series.
