I have autism and I love these headphones for very specific reasons
Reviewed in the United States on December 17, 2020
Hello. If you are reading this, you are probably doing it because of the title. I have autism. If you also have autism, these headphones are definitely worth trying out. First of all, the problem with most (all others that I have tried) over-ear headphones—for a person on the spectrum, or someone with sensory issues—is that they tend to fit like a vice grip on my head. It’s an incredibly uncomfortable feeling and I inevitably end up hating all other over-ear headphones that I have tried before this pair. Why are these different? If you will notice, the over-ear piece of the equipment is not 100% attached to the over-the-head band; they are flexible. This is a key feature of the design that applies specifically to autism. These headphones are honestly THE MOST COMFORTABLE (i use all caps because I cried the first time I put them on, it was that amazing) headphones I have ever had the pleasure of wearing; they fit like a f***ing glove! I use caps and profanity because I’m emotional about how amazing these headphones are.
Okay, that brings me to design feature number two: the noise canceling. Oh. My. Sweet. Jesus. I sobbed the first time I turned on the noise canceling. I was sitting in bed with my weighted blanket (guys, I’m going through some repressed memories so the stress is at an all-time high right now) and I put these one to drown out the sound of my (also autistic) son and whatever other noises were happening in our small apartment. It was like a freakin dove descended from heaven to relieve my senses of the constant oppression they experience on a daily basis, that I have learned to ignore after 33 years of dealing with it (I am 33 years old). But, as the book says, “the body keeps the score,” right? Oh my word. My body instantly relaxed like it was at a f***ing spa! In the middle of my tiny apartment. With my child screaming in the other room. Silence. Total silence. Inner peace. Transcendence. All of the above. It was amazing. If you are looking for noise canceling performance, these have it in spades (I make no comparison to other brands because I have not tried many over $300 headphones).
Okay, lets move on. The third feature that is amazing: battery life. These puppies last and last and last. I wore them for two days straight with out needing to charge until the end of day two. I have never experienced that level of battery performance from any other headphones so color me impressed.
In conclusion, these headphones are the most amazing thing I own. Not even kidding. No exaggeration. I’m in love. I carry so much less stress knowing that by simply putting these on I can escape the constant onslaught of sensory information I receive on a daily basis. Even if I’m not wearing them, just knowing that I have this option sometimes makes all the difference. If you have autism, or are sensitive to auditory stimulation, definitely give these babies a try. In my opinion, they are worth every penny. Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed my perspective.
