March 31 2010 Update
I've got to hand it to John at CCRANE. He called me up, told me they changed manufacturers, and sent me the new version. I've had it for over a month now and so far so good. I'm extra careful now when taking the speakers out from under the pillow in the morning so as not to strain the speaker/cable connection. I've tried other brands of speaker pillows (my wife doesn't listen to Coast so I've got to keep it quiet at night!) and this is the best design I've found (small/soft cover... could listen to it directly on the ear) so I'm glad I tried it again. Until a better product comes along I'll now recommend this brand... just be sure to put it away each morning so it doesn't get damaged by pets or house cleaners running a vacuum! Thanks John!
This is a must have in any shared environment. We use it in a motorhome because we like different TV shows. I often like to lay down to watch a show before sleeping or napping. This provides quality sound and is extremely comfortable. If I fall asleep and the speaker is there, it's not uncomfortable at all. I program the TV to shut off in under 60 minutes, so I often drift off before the movie is over.
The little pillow type cover is removable and washable in case you get it dirty. The speaker can be used to face either way inside the pillow type cover.
The picture is an illusion, making it appear square, but it is really round. I've included a picture to help you out.
Alas, the cord did finally wear out, right where it goes into the speaker, after five years of flawless service. Contrary to what some have written, you *can* take it apart... very, very carefully, and re-thread the cord and resolder it... at least, in theory, if you're handy with that sort of thing. I say that, because I've got mine apart, and from all accounts it's still in one piece... but now I can't find my soldering iron. :/ Maybe I'll finish repairing it, but maybe I'll order the newer model with the in-line volume control. That seems like a handy feature. The only real question is how I'll sleep without it until I repair or replace it. (Update -- I fixed it! The wires in the cord are extremely fine, so it wasn't an easy prospect, but I managed to strip and resolder it and superglue the halves of the case back together... and, yes, it's working again. I slept so much better last night, with my Kindle DX text-to-speech lulling me to sleep from under my pillow. Alas, I still think the in-line volume control would be cool to have, so I might "need" to get a new one, at some point, to have that feature.)
I think five years under my pillow is a reasonable life expectancy, particularly in light of the fact that I'm (allegedly) a pretty restless sleeper.
If you have a really thick pillow, particularly memory foam, you won't get enough sound with the speaker under the pillow. I like thin pillows, so I don't have this problem. When I'm just relaxing on the bed, not sleeping. the speaker goes on top of the pillow, next to my ear. Otherwise, it's under the pillow every night, usually connected to the Kindle DX, sometimes the cell phone or Kindle Fire.
The cord is a very generous length, I'd guess about 6 feet, so you don't *need* any kind of headphone extension cord, but I've typically used one anyway, to allow me to droop the cord behind the head of the bed with plenty of slack to route it around to the night stand to avoid the possibility of any strain being placed on it. I'd recommend that with this, or any other similar product.
