Sleepsonic Pillow







I recently got a couple of messages from my followers concerning headphones and sleeping. If you are like me, then you may find it difficult or impossible to sleep on your back. I have never had any luck sleeping on my back my whole life. This makes it very hard for me to wear headphones while lying on my side.

I ran across the website, sleep sonic while browsing the internet yesterday. Basically it's a pillow with built in headphones. I am thinking about buying this for use with isochronic tones. I will make sure to post my full review if I buy it.

Has anyone had experience with this pillow, or a similar product? Feel free to post your experiences or questions in the comments below.

That's a damn good idea. I always sleep on my side, so I've had to use earbuds which suck as far as sound quality (for the most part) and hurt like hell by the time I wake up.

Kazarak said...

Seems like a good idea, as long as the speakers or headphones don't make the pillow uncomfortable. It does seem expensive though.

KB said...

Nifty pillow. Haven't had one, but it looks cool. A friend of mine showed me this pillow that has lights in it that are supposed to slowly illuminate in the morning to gently wake you like the sun does, naturally. You could set the time on the pillow.

Kinda cool.

will be waiting on a review of this

Sweet, this is awesome, I totally need this. Like you, I have trouble sleeping on my back as well. I'm looking forward to the review if you decide to purchase it.

Exrodge said...

When I sleep, the pillow was lying at my feet.

Ciriis said...

Thats a fantastic idea, so good I actually went on there site and bought 2 of them for myself and my wife. God knows how many ear buds i have destroyed in my sleep, simply because I wanted to listen to some music while I sleep.

@ KB - I love the concept of the pillow you described. I like to keep my window curtain slightly open so the sun can help me wake up. I might have to take a look at this pillow.

@ Ciriis - Be sure to let us know how the pillows work for you and your wife! Hopefully I'll get one soon.

Lol I can never manage to sleep with headphones on. I'm not exactly sure why..

Dilgaf said...

i always sleep with music on, but instead of headphone i just have an ipod dock next to my bed and have the volume down

Weirdwhirl said...

I use ear buds, keep breaking headphones keep breaking when i sleep with them, I crush them :(

LittleGiantBomb said...

A pillow with built-in headphones? that stuff is the boss

metalpark_73192 said...

Wow this is cool. I always toss and turn in bed so this would be a perfect alternative to sleeping with earphones.

Bent said...

Wow, that is really cool! I can't wait to read the review! :-)

Improve your Vocab! said...

you have to write a review if you get one! it is a fantastic idea.

RaZer said...

My mind has been blown....

Daan said...

I don't think this will work, because when you lay on the pillow with one side down, the balance of volume will be totally gone. Also some binaural tones are different on two sides to create an effect. I won't buy this.

Nik Mekeena said...

wow great stuff!! very cool blog. Ill be following your blog. Check out my blog too if youd like :)

AuditorAwakening said...

@ Daan - This post was not about binuaral beats. It was about isochronic tones which do not require directional audio.

Showtek said...

Those would work perfect. Wish they were in my price range though.

Shockwave said...

I need something like this, I tend to just leave my iTouch playing music out of the speaker or leave my pc running!

Spiderflaw said...

oh man that thing looks so awesome, i've been stealing my cousin's beanie which has built in headphones as well. :3

mmmpieohyeah said...

All my pillows end up in the floor anyway...

Slaphappy said...

this sounds cool, I normally leave the teev on for some noise, this is much better

Mr. Rogers said...

Want. I want this, it'd be so cool

jeebus said...

WANT

Ashton Chase said...

I've seen them for sale before, and I've always been moderately interested in getting one, but have yet to.

Joe Somebody said...

Makes me sleepy just thinking about it.

Because I Make Sense said...

Hope you buy it. I'd love to hear what it's like!

swagdigital said...

I need this. They seem really cool. lol!

Bulk Up Baba said...

I always rip/brake my headphones while I am sleeping . Also they always bug me while I am trying to sleep .

I like to listen to music while I am sleeping .
I was going to give a shot to this pillow . But it is so expensive for such a pillow .

I rather buying speakers for my room .

NoMoreTrouble said...

I think I had one of these for a while. They were okay but not exactly my cup of tea.

The Game said...

I can sleep on my back, but it still isn't as comfortable without headphones

AssortedNews said...

If it worked as advertised that'd be great, it's just kinda hard to imagine though.

Evan said...

ive always been able to fall asleep on my back for some reason. That pillow looks awesome though.

f0rwhatitsworth said...
