Especially for self help, subliminal tapes etc. Even for sunbathing !
I've tried several pillow speakers in the quest for better sound quality AND comfort.
Apparently a difficult combination to attain for many manufacturers.
I began my quest by purchasing one of the first offerings, a standard size bed pillow, in which the speakers were embedded. A cord was attached to the pillow to connect to your device (walkman, in my case).
Afer several uses, (not that many) the speakers would cut out & crackle when I moved the cord.
Ended up as spare pillow sans speaker :o(
Next, I tried the standard $6 radio shack pillow speaker, which was actually rather sturdy, round & had a handy volume control (similar to the Sharper Image pillow speaker). Excellent for travel, but the sound quality really sucked, really tiny AND really tinny AND it really feels like there is a rock under your pillow.
After much searching, I came across the PillowSonic digital stereo pillow speaker insert, purchased for $19 from the manufacturer's website.
I received a free relaxation CD as they were running a promo at the time
I think PillowSonic has nailed it.
The cushioned pillow insert contains TWO speakers providing stereo sound (from both sides of the pillow). Surprisingly clear, quite adequate, although we are not talking Bose quality. Not too shabby.
The pillow sleeve itself is rather soft & cushioned well enough where the metal edges of the speakers are not annoying to your ears through your pillow. Unlike the hard plastic radio shack unit... (aka little rock);
PillowSonic is quite comfortable; you can barely feel the speakers.Read more ›
This product is essentially two very flat speakers, but not that different from those in your headphones, inserted into a rectangular pocket of foam. There are hard pieces in the pillow speaker, but there is enough foam in front of it, that you can sleep on it comfortably, as the back of the speaker just presses further into your pillow.
I cannot use this underneath my pillow as I have a tempurpedic memory foam pillow - its just too dense to hear the speaker well even at the highest volume - but a regular pillow would work much better.
However, I put this right on top of my pillow and put my ear on top of it, it works great, I tend to keep it at the highest volume and just adjust the distance of the pillow to my ear depending on how loud I want to perceive it, the speakers do not have a volume on them (that would be a nice feature). I've slept on this every night for 7 months and no visible wear or tear has appeared.
The only drawback is that the pillow has two plastic tabs similar the small end of a plastic tag holder that holds a price tag to your new clothes on the front, and that scratches my face, I cut it off though with no apparent repercussions, I'm not sure what purpose they served, perhaps to hold wires in place.
Overall, this is exactly what I was looking for as I need to listen to something to fall asleep, but with kids and husband often sleeping in the same room, I don't want to play it on a regular speaker.
So I originally purchased these speakers in 2007. I have used a pillowsonic speaker every single night to fall asleep since then. Unfortunately I'd love to say that my original pillowsonic speaker is still going strong, but that's not the case.Read more ›
This product has the following:
- Two speakers instead of one single speaker.
- The speakers are made for the hearing impaired, so you can place them below your pillow and still hear through the pillow. They can get really loud before you hear static/noise.
- The cable from the speakers is short (about 3 or 4 feet). The speaker from Sharper image was around 6 feet long which made it nice to connect to stereos which were further away. Now I need to use a special extension cable to do the same.
- The connection into the speakers does not seem to be attached really well, so if you are not careful or a heavy sleeper, you may yank the cable out of the speakers.
- The speakers are hard plastic. If you lay on them directly, it can hurt... so it is better to put them under your pillow to add some cushion.
I like the product and am glad I have it. At $20, if I break it, it wouldn't be a huge loss. If it does break, I will buy this product again to replace it.

It doesn't have an amplifier and I need it to be much louder.
If you don't have a hearing problem I think it'll work great or you!
Received a refund right away... Read more
I would just like to point out that this is a passive speaker system, which means it does not provide its own amplification. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Clinton Lindgren
I was disappointed in the sound quality which was unclear/fuzzy. It is also uncomfortable. I am back to regular headphones!Published 27 days ago by Wendy L Forman
I loved the speaker the first two or three times I used it. The last two times I tried it I realized the sound can no longer be heard through the pillow or even if it is sitting... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kathleen Beau
