'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

The handy app features both white noise and music options for up to ten hours.


Sometimes, it's hard to fall asleep without external sounds or even with a white noise machine. You've added smart features to everything else, but how about your ears at bedtime? Right now, you can score specialized sleep earbuds for your sleep on sale. Originally $180, you can get the Soundcore Sleep A10 noise blocking sleep earbuds for only $130 with a special code.

The Sleep A10 earbuds are perfect for sleeping. While they're not active noise canceling headphones, they feature a four-point noise masking system so you can sleep undisturbed. They are comfortable to wear whether you're a side sleeper or crash on your back, and they stay securely in your ear the entire evening.

When you pair them with the app, you'll get access to a library of white noise machines, sleep sounds, and more to keep you snoozing until morning. The earbuds were also designed to promote lower frequency sounds that are on average 10dB lower than magnetic drivers to help you fall and stay asleep, too. Track your sleep with the earbuds too, so you can see in-depth data.

It comes with a music mode and a special sleep mode. As such, the battery life varies, with music mode lasting for up to six hours, and sleep mode for up to 10 hours. Like most of the Anker Soundcore family, these earbuds come with a bunch of earbud wings and tips to customize your fit.

You'll have to use code WS24SLEEP to get the $50 off coupon deal at Soundcore's website. Add them to your cart today to get this great $130 deal. As a heads up, while these are great for sleep, they're not 100% designed for daytime use. For that, we recommend heading over to our best wireless earbuds picks to get a set that will suit your needs.
