Regular headphones or earbuds are uncomfortable to lay on. If you haven't tried it, the effect leaves an ear aching and sore to say the least. Bulky headphones even affect the neck, potentially causing a headache upon waking.
AcousticSheep designed a pair of headphones you can lay on, with super thin (less than 4 mm) speakers and a washable headband to keep them secured to your head all night.
There are many uses for SleepPhones:
- Relaxing music
- Guided meditaions
- Noise blocker
- At home
- For travel
- And many more...
Beware of Imitations
There are plenty of competitors that create a similar product- but they're not really the same. The design of SleepPhones uses the smallest speakers available, and wraps them in a felt padding to make it as comfortable as possible. No other version seems to compare.
You get what you pay for - most competitors cannot boast the slim speakers with the same quality. Though there may be cheaper versions, rest assured they are likely skimping on quality somewhere. The investment in your sleep is worth the extra money, and AcousticSheep's SleepPhones are made to last.
I've been using SleepPhones for years, and I've absolutely loved them. I have the corded version, which after four years has only a few minor issues. About a year ago (after three years of nightly use), the cord near the plug weakened and had to be fixed. About six months ago, one of the speakers started having this odd crinkle noise when I lay on that side. However, the sound quality is still magnificent (the crinkle is the age of the plastic cover over the speaker inside the felt squares.
When I buy a new pair, I'll likely go with the cordless, as the biggest issue was when the cord weakened. Even so, I'm confident this first pair will still be functional for many years to come. At this point, they've been an investment of about $10/year, or less than a dollar a month. For the quality of sleep and the effects gained from uplifting affirmations I recorded for myself, they are well worth that price.
In the last four years, AcousticSheep have since improved the SleepPhones overall, and the few issues I've had with them may not even apply to the ones currently on the market.
