I must admit the SleepPhones product itself wasn’t the first thing that caught my eye at the International CES in Vegas. It was the guy in the sheep outfit standing in front of the booth. However I’m glad he beckoned me over!
SleepPhoness, marketed as “pajamas for your ears”, is a soft headband with integrated speakers. It comes in 2 versions the ‘Original’ wired version and a wireless Bluetooth version. To be honest – I was really excited to try the wireless version (sleeping with cords scares me). The wireless Bluetooth version is very easy to use and quite convenient. The speakers aren’t overly large – the battery sits at the back of the head and is small, soft, and not too heavy. I have no idea how long the battery lasted because it did the job – it lasted long enough to get me to sleep and keep me asleep. I also like that you can use it as a sleep mask.
So how is the sound? Its not big and booming, its not sharp and tinny – it is a nice sound – a pleasant sound. The company is very smart – they have a free iPhone app designed with sleeping sounds and music.
For those looking for sleep time headphones this product is a no-brainer.
It also makes a GREAT gift because most people would love getting one but not know to look for it in the first place.
