Sleepbuds II Painful
I was really looking forward to receiving my Sleepbuds II this week. I never tried the first generation but love my QC 35's and have been looking for a solution to drowning out a low frequency "Pulse" that can be heard from my bed, and results in many a lost night's sleep.
I have tried earplugs but they have always been painful to wear, especially as a side sleeper. I rejoiced but was also slightly skeptical when I read Sleepbuds are comfortable even when they are resting against the pillow in side sleeping position.
To my disappointment, I had a rough first night with my Sleepbuds II.
When I place my head to the side, against the pillow I get instant discomfort, pain and my ear feels like it's throbbing. I persevered and tried it with a medium firm and then a soft pillow, which made no difference. I also ended up trying all three sizes of the Sleepbud eartips and all were painful.
The feeling of discomfort became so great that I had to concede defeat, take them out, never to awake to the Sleepbuds alarm.
Does anyone else have any tips to make them more comfortable as a side sleeper? I can't seem to find anyone else saying that they are uncomfortable in this position.
I would like to persist with them, but my ears still hurt, even now.
