Like to listen to music in bed? SleepPhones by AcousticSheep are the most comfortable headphones to wear to sleep all night long. Just choose your favorite sleep soundtrack on your MP3 player, CD player, white noise machine, TV, or any other audio device and plug in SleepPhones. Regular headphones and ear buds are bulky and painful for side sleepers. Developed by a family physician, these innovative high-quality headphones allow you to fall asleep naturally, without drugs, by listening to relaxing music. SleepPhones connect to most devices via a standard 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) mini-jack and a 4 foot (120 cm) cable. Lightweight and washable, the wicking fleece SleepPhones headband contains thin removable (and replaceable) speakers. You spend a third of your life sleeping...make it enjoyable with SleepPhones.

The original headband was much too tight, was stiff and uncomfortable, and the way it's shaped, it slips down over your eyes. I didn't like that. I realized that the speakers themselves remove from the headband for washing, so I examined how it was made and threw together a headband of my own in minutes, by cutting a long rectangle out of polar fleece, joining the ends so it formed a circle, then folding lengthwise and sewing up one side. I then cut a slot to put the speakers in at the top. I made mine very loose (measured my own head and added a few inches) so it slipped on and off easily and left no dent in my hair.
After I used that awhile, I realized it would work even better if it wasn't a band, so I made a second one by just cutting a long rectangle out of polar fleece, folding it lengthwise and sewing together at the edge. I left the ends open and unattached to each other- this makes it easier to reach in and pull the speakers through and adjust their placement. I cut a slot in the top side at the middle to insert the speakers. (I sewed a bit of velcro there so they don't pull out.) This way, I can lay my head on one speaker then reach up and bring the other side around and set it on my other ear. It is so much more comfortable. Also a lot of times I don't use the bottom speaker because it can be kind of uncomfortable to lay on, I just put the top one over my ear. I don't toss and turn a lot and it stays put just fine for me.
The speakers themselves are not super high grade but they're fine. I listen to podcasts and audio books and they work great for that.
The cord is very durable and seems like it will last a long time. I will definitely replace these again when they finally do wear out!
i used to sleep with a pair of earbuds connected to my iphone, which has an amazing sleep application. while the earbuds would help me fall asleep and drown out all the noise, i'd never be able to sleep the entire night through, because unfortunately, i mostly sleep on my side. of course being a light sleeper, the tiniest discomfort of the earbuds pushing into my head would unfortunately wake me up. after exhaustive searching, there really was only one product on the market catered to me, and that was this product.
i had very low expectations for the sleepphones, but really had no other options. for some reason, they just didn't seem like they were going to work. i felt like i had to have something deep inside my ear to really block out all the noise, and figured that with the headband, sound would still be able to leak in. i also thought that they would definitely come off during the night, or end up around my neck. but i decided to give it a try, and i'm so happy i did.
i first bought the medium/large ones, and found out quickly that they were too big (guess i have a small head). they didn't really fit right and were pretty loose, so i had to order the small headband. once i got the right fit headband, the quality of my life has completely changed. they fully block out all the noise, in fact, i never have to turn my volume up full blast, they definitely produce enough sound. the speakers inside the headband can be moved around, so you can have them either directly on your ears for complete noise blocking, or you can move them forward/backward of your ears and get a more ambient noise. they're extremely comfortable, and i have no issues with sleeping on my side. sometimes during the night they come down a little on my forehead, but they don't ever fall off.
i finally can sleep completely through the night. what's even more interesting, is that i'm actually in bed LESS than i was before. i used to be in bed 8-10 hours, constantly being woken up, going back to sleep, being woken up again. imagine my surprise when the first night using the sleepphones i slept 5 hours and felt incredible the next day. it was 5 hours of quality sleep, not being woken up once, something i hadn't experienced in years. i'm now sleeping 6-7 hours a night, and again, the sleep is such good quality that i feel wonderful in the morning.
there is only one drawback however, which has less to do with the sleepphones themselves, and more about the technology. since there is a cord, you do run the risk of it wrapping around you. i have woken up a few times with the cord wrapped around my neck, which was a little scary. it's definitely not discouraged me from using them, and it's only happened a few times, but it's just something to be aware of. having a cordless version would be the most ideal thing, but that too would come with it's own set of drawbacks, at least right now. having a wireless sleepphone system would mean integrating a long-lasting (6+ hours), rechargeable battery into the headband, as well as a bluetooth receiver, all in way that would be comfortable to sleep with. this i'm sure could be done, but the cost would be substantially higher. until that day comes however, the wired version is almost perfect in every way.
there are very few products that i can conclusively say have increased the quality of my life. without a doubt, the sleepphones have totally changed a huge part of my health and well-being. after an entire life of dealing with poor sleep and trying everything possible, this is something that has truly helped me. i hope that this company continues to innovate in the area of sleep headphones.
I finally broke down and bought them. The fit is fine, the sound is fine. I got the lighter material band because I thought fleece sounded to warm. I pull them down over my eyes and that works great for blocking out light.
However, I wake up with my ear hurting a lot from lying on the speaker, which aren't as small/thin as I was expecting. If I'm not using them for sleeping, they're great, but considering that's the whole purpose of them, being uncomfortable during sleep is a big issue.
Also, for those that complain about cords getting wrapped around their neck, if you feed the cord up over the top of your pillow, then tuck it under, it eliminates that issue. Will include a pic of that.
