First these are not "tiny" or "inconspicuous". I was very disappointed with what I received. These are not worth $50. The wires are thicker than standard earbud wires, and the white triple flange tips are so big, I couldn't fit them in my ears. I bought these to wear at work and went back to using my old buds. Very disappointed with these . . .

I have tried various in-ear earphones for the purpose of simultaneously blocking out background noise and piping sound into my ears (i.e. listening to books on tape on the subway, or piping whitenoise into my ear for blocking out snoring) and these are definitely the smallest and thus most comfortable for sleeping. As a side sleeper, even these smallest earphones do press a bit uncomfortably and I find myself shifting and bunching the pillow a lot while I sleep to alleviate pressure points, but they are VASTLY better than the next best "small" earphones I have tried in the past. When the noise from snoring or loud neighbors is more than mere earplugs can handle, these microbuds in my ear and plugged into my personal whitenoise machine are the answer. You can set your preferred whitenoise machine to any appropriate sound (night train is good for snoring), turn it up as loud as need be, and just do your best to get comfortable and not flip and turn too much through the night, because the cords will wrap around your neck and arms and then you'll yank them out of your ears. With all that said, I don't think there are any smaller or more comfortable corded earbuds out there, so if you have no choice but to block the noise, these are the best. I use them with the foam eartips so they expand to fill my ear snugly and stay in better too.
