• Earbuds, worn inserted in your ear, are easy to carry around with you and can be worn relatively discreetly. If you want to record (as well as listen) on-the-go, look for a set with a built-in microphone.
  • Bluetooth headsets allow you to R/L without wires running to your recorder. Parents of small children have suggested that these are a wonderful option since little hands love to grab the wires on regular headphones.
  • Over-the-ear phones can be a good choice if you’re uncomfortable with earpieces in your ear. While they can also help keep outside sound out, when carried around they’re bulkier and easier to damage than other options.
  • Many folks love to listen to their recordings all night long as they sleep in order to stave off conditioning’s favorite middle-of-the-night scare tactics of fear, worry, and anxiety. Companies now make “SleepPhones,” which are soft headbands with small speakers in them. Ask at your local electronics store or search online for “headphones for sleeping.”
