As someone who is oversensitive to touch, I find headphone to be painful. I can't wear an "on-hear" headphone and even the "around-hear" can be painful if I wear them for too long. Worst, if I need to use my glasses at the same time (to be on the computer for example), I'm unable to do so because of the pain.
I'm also oversensitive to noise (but less than to touch) and I would like to have some solution to "cancel noise" in everydays situations (in the open space, in a crowded place, etc...).
Due to my oversensitive touch, a noise-canceling headphone isn't a solution. However, I think something similar to an Ostrich Pillow could be a solution (but not the real version since I want to be able to see things).
So, I was wondering if you had some DIY tutorial I could follow to make a comfortable noise-canceler (or just a product that fit my need I could buy)? It doesn't need to be for making some kind of Ostrich Pillow, I'm open to other solution as well. I'm also open to solutions for a noise-canceler that you can't easily cart around and who isn't supposed to move after you have installed it (for an open-office scenario for example).
Note and clarifications:
Earphones are even worst than on-hear headphone and, for this reason, I'm pretty sure earplugs won't do.
If you want to have an idea of how oversensitive touch is like, here are some example:
- I hate slim and believe they are the most uncomfortable thing ever. For this reason, I only wear large trousers (and cloth in general).
- Tights are awful, they feel too weird and I can't focus on anything else while wearing them.
- I don't use nail polish on my fingers because the sensation of having this on my fingers feel too weird (but my toes are fine with nail polish).
- I don't tie my hair because "they don't like" being bent another way. And, when I do tie them, it becomes painful after a time.
Here are some parts of my body that are more fine with touch:
- The top of my head. I don't mind wearing a hood and winter cap are fine (but, strangely, sun cap are less fine).
- My shoulders. I'm used to wearing a backpack and so, I believe that something who would weigh on my shoulders will be fine.
The big point to remember:
- My ears are the most sensitive part of my body and anything putting pressure on them is a big no (I even have a system to be able to sleep on the side without my ears touching the pillow).
