Low frequency sound masking ? - sleep ear buds

I have a neighbor who plays video games late into the night and I am a light sleeper. The low frequency (bass) electronic sound reverberates through the common wall and into my bedroom which prevents me from falling asleep and/or staying asleep. Do the sleep ear buds mask low frequency sound?

Re: Low frequency sound masking ? - sleep ear buds

Hi PSRon


Thanks for posting in the community!


The Sleepbuds don't have any active noise cancelling features in them, and use passive noise attenuation to help mask the sounds from the outside world.  It's hard to say if this will work in your specific situation, so I would recommend trying them out and if they don't work out, we have a great 30 day risk free return policy!


Warm Regards,

Any way the sleepbuds are capable of a new low frequency sound loop enginered specifically to help mask out the low frequency annoyances?

Re: Low frequency sound masking ? - sleep ear buds

The buds have a fixed repertoire of (currently) 10 sounds. You'd have to experiment to see if any of them work for you. The "Circulate" sound has a low-frequency hum as part of it, but it's not the primary sound and may not be effective for this. Have you discussed the issue with your neighbor? Perhaps he'd be willing to use headphones at night.

Although I don't have this specific problem my answer would be yes. I use them for deep bassy voices from downstairs. Have tested with bassy YouTube videos cranked up. Vehicle engines right outside my window at 3am. Between the different sounds and the different volumes you might try, I think they'll mask just about anything.
