ways some people use headphones to reduce overload from noise

no particular brand recs (my favorite pair are cheap generic) but in general - try a music store or similar? see if you can try the headphones on before purchasing? i find padding that fits AROUND the ear is comfier than ON the ear.

I have a Bose Quietcomfort 15. It is really comfortable and light and it works really well. It is 300 dollars/euro’s though… You can get them online or at an high end electronics store.

I use some £20 over the head Sony headphones and play white noise into them. I also use them to listen to music on long journeys so they have at least 3hrs comfy wear in them.

i have adhd and using bose’ noise cancelling headphones, even when not plugged into music, really helps me focus and recenter! :)

I use musician’s earplugs, because they’re more discrete and I can use them comfortably for longer periods of time than earmuffs (2-3 hours). They’re really good for reducing background noise, especially in crowded places.

i know some people who are sound sensitive who use headphones that are i think made for use at shooting ranges. similar ones come up if you just google “shooting headphones.” i don’t use them myself however so can’t recommend any certain brand.

I have a Bluetooth collar with earbuds that I use for this sometimes- even just the slight muffling of noise helps a lot lot
