Sara Woodbury –
My wonderful partner got me these headphones for work and to tune out his eating when I’m not eating myself, as he knows mouth-related noises are my main triggers. For context, I consider my misophonia to be on the milder end of the spectrum, as my triggers generally don’t inhibit my ability to work or socialize. They’re certainly annoying and cause me a lot of stress, but I’ve always been able to cope with them.
These headphones come with two settings: one for noise cancellation, and one for connecting to bluetooth devices so you can listen to music or other media. My partner connected the headphones to our television and my computer, and according to him it was very easy to set up the bluetooth. When fully charged the headphones last for about thirty hours, so you can definitely use these for the workday and other longer periods of time.
I took these with me on a recent train trip from Virginia to New York and they were a complete game-changer for me. What might have been a stressful, aggravating ride became a productive eight-hour day where I was able to work comfortably the whole time. The noise cancellation is very effective at minimizing ambient sounds; I could barely hear the train when I wore the headphones. With bagged snacks like chips you can still hear the crinkling of the bag if the sitter is right next to you, but it’s much quieter. Speaking voices sound far away, but you can still hear them if you need to talk to people. Most importantly, chewing and mouth noises are minimized. Depending on what people are eating and how close they are to you, you might still hear it a little, but it’s a much quieter, muffled sound, and the bristling edge of louder crunching, chewing, and slurping is gone. If the people doing the eating are further away or you can’t see them, it’s as though they aren’t there.
The music setting is also very good, producing high-quality sound covering both the treble and bass ranges. The noise cancelling function isn’t as strong on this setting, but I found that didn’t really matter because my ears were immersed in music, which effectively tuned out other sounds. I alternated between the two settings during the train trip depending on what I was working on, and I thought both were effective at reducing the sounds of other passengers.
The headphones are also very comfortable to wear, with soft, well-cushioned padding and an adjustable headband. Once I found the right setting for me, I was able to wear them for several hours without getting a headache or other kinds of pain.
Overall I would highly recommend these. I don’t know how well they’d work for someone with severe misophonia, as I can only speak to my own experiences, but for me they made the difference between a pleasant workday and a stressful, angry commute. My only regret is that I didn’t get these years ago.
