As more and more people to turn to their doctors for sleep aids, who knows how much harm we are doing to our bodies with those drugs. It is time to try a natural solution that will help you get to sleep faster. It also can help you stay asleep which seems to be my biggest problem with everything racing around in my head. SleepPhones are the ultimate way to get to sleep and reduce stress. You wear them like a headband and they cover your ears. You can download different soothing sounds like Newport Waves or White Noise or a Minor Thing of piano music on their website. Super comfortable and adjusts to different temperatures. Luckily my husband does not snore, but boy I hear some of my friends complain all the time they get awoken by those obnoxious inhales and exhales. So I suggested they try the SleepPhone and voila! No more complaints! 

If you like listening to your tunes or audio books before you go to bed like I do, check these SleepPhones out. They are super cool. They are essentially a comfy headband with headphones in them. Why didn't I think of this. The fleece machine washable band goes on smoothly and the speakers are clear and have amazing clarity & sound. Perfect for planes, trains and hotels. What I like most about this product is wearing them walking to work in the cold Boston winter. The headband keeps your ears toasty warm and the all the while you can listen to your Ipod and not sweat the cold weather. Check these out, they are sure to be a hit across the board. 

Have you ever wanted to stay up and listen to music while your girlfriend or boyfriend wanted to go to sleep? The simple solution would be to just put on some headphones and bed. Unfortunately, wearing headphones in bed is never comfortable! Especially if you want to fall asleep to those lovely musical sounds. Thankfully, SleepPhones has solved this problem that has probably plagued everyone of us at one point or another! They have designed a super-soft and comfortable headband with headphones built in. It's so comfortable, you will barely realize you are wearing it. And the actual headphone speakers are so thin, you won't even notice they are there. They have a standard headphone jack, so you can plug it into any music device you may have. They have even included a CD with sleep sounds on it to help you get the perfect night's sleep! Finally, a problem that has been bothering us all for years has been solved by SleepPhones!

I have always found I've slept better when on vacation by the beach, or if there is an overnight thunderstorm. I've tried a sound machine, but didn't really like that I had to reach over to work it. When I received the SleepPhones, I was hooked. It was perfect because I could plug them into whatever portable device I wanted and didn't have to reach over the nightstand. I loved the soft, plush feel of the headband. It was nice and cozy for a cold winter night. I loved that the ear pieces weren't bulky like ear buds can be. I couldn't feel them as I was laying on my side. I've even used them when I take my dog on a walk. They keep my ears warm in the cold, and I can listen to my music just like I would in the summer. I've already told several friends about them. I can't wait to go to bed!


The Sleep Headphones Story 

As Told By Dr. Wei-Shin Lai, MD, Founder/CEO of AcousticSheep LLC 

In 2007, I had trouble falling back to sleep after patient phone calls late at night as a family doctor. My husband suggested that I listen to something to take my mind off of patient concerns. Since I didn't want to disturb my husband while he slept, I needed headphones or ear buds I could wear in bed. But there was nothing comfortable on the market. I couldn't sleep on my side with headphones, and ear buds are just painful. So I came up with stuffing speakers inside a headband. We found very thin high quality speakers, bought super soft fleece, and began sewing and soldering. We decided it was such a great invention that we had to start the SleepPhones company!


Vacations are always fun, but they can also be draining, especially if the traveler cannot get enough sleep due to being on a plane or in a strange bed in a hotel. SleepPhones, the combination soft headband/headphones designed specifically for sleeping, can help vacationers get enough sleep whether in the air or in a bed. 
The soft, comfortable fleece headband houses thin speakers which fit snugly over the ears, blocking air passenger and hotel noise and enabling the user to fall asleep to music, nature sounds, etc. 
In addition, the SleepPhones web site offers mp3 downloads of binaural beats that help induce relaxation and drowsiness, a perfect thing to play on SleepPhones. And since the speakers are removable, vacationers can throw SleepPhones in the washing machine to clean them when they get home. 
“SleepPhones allow you to drift off to sleep via your favorite soothing sounds instead being kept awake by noisy hotel neighbors or airliner noises,” said Dr. Wei-Shin Lai, CEO/founder of SleepPhones and family doctor. “Being well-rested makes a vacation more fun, so SleepPhones are the perfect travel accessory.”
