I searched the internet and read about many masks and finally decided that I would try this one. I am so glad that I made this decision. When the mask arrived, I followed the directions to hand wash it and allow it to air dry. Then I put it on and was amazed. Even with the sun shining, the mask let me sleep in total darkness.

    Promising review: "First and foremost, in terms of value, it would be hard to beat these noise cancelling headphones. You put these bad boys on and your surroundings just fade away. I wouldn’t go as far to say they’re perfect, but you considering what you're paying, these deliver. The sound quality is pretty decent, which means it’s high in bass to mask the deficiencies elsewhere. I enjoy listening to my songs on these more than my AirPods and almost as much as my older Bose Quiet Comforts, so when you consider the price these are pretty amazing." —GusReviews
