A 49-year-old member asked:
Is it safe to sleep with headphones on?

No, bad idea: If they are wired headphones, you could choke yourself.
No matter wired or wireless, they will interfere with your ability to have good sound sleep when you move during your sleep, plus they could prevent you from hearing a smoke detector if your place is on fire.
