This creation, simply put is ‘pajamas for your ears’.

For many of us settling in for a great sleep can entail some sort of relaxing music, meditation or audio story to get us relaxed and ready to drift off.

It’s so important that we get the right amount of sleep and exercise to help maintain good mental and physical health and by doing so, it contributes to our overall well-being.

These hypoallergenic headbands contain thin padded wireless speakers inside a soft headband that connects to any Bluetooth device. And the best part is that it doesn’t require you to insert buds into your ears which is fantastic if you’re a side sleeper.

Whether you’re needing calming music or sounds to get to sleep without interrupting your partner or traveling and like to listen to podcasts or audiobooks this multipurpose headband can be used for whatever you’d like it for.

  • Fleece Headband – super soft and warm. Ideal for relaxing, sleeping or meditating
  • Breeze Headband (moisture-wicking (removes moisture away from the body) – ideal for running, exercising, preferred by hot sleepers, and those living in warm climates

What I love about these headbands is that they also come in a variety of colors of choice and they are lightweight, hypoallergenic and easy to wash (either by hand or machine) and preshrunk, so they can be placed in the dryer.

These headbands were developed by a doctor (Dr. Wei-Shin Lai) and her husband, a video game developer (Jason Wolfe).

Two individuals with totally different career backgrounds came together to develop SheepPhones in an effort to not only assist Dr. Wei-Chin Lai but all individuals in maintaining overall wellness.

Based on the awards achieved thus far for this product, it’s pretty evident that they’ve been successful with their creation.

As mentioned in the video, the idea was developed in 2007 when Dr. Lai was often called in to work during the middle of the night,  then would return home and would need to hear the meditation sounds to return to sleep but didn’t want to disrupt her husband.

From there the two creators got to work to create SleepPhones and continue their business success today.

  1. This is really a neat idea – they look very comfortable and easy to use. Do you know if they have a bluetooth version in the works? I tend to toss and turn in my sleep. Definitely an item I would use when traveling on plane, train or bus…..

    • Hi There

      Yes, the wireless and Effortless versions connect to Bluetooth. The Effortless version even steps it up with wireless charging.
      SleepPhones creators are continuously adding to their brand with innovative creations to help people rest and relax easily.

      Thank you for your comment

      All the Best


  2. Hi Tracy. I really enjoyed reading your review. It is very well written and the structure of it, is amazing! I wish I could do something like this in the future, although I do think the phones a bit expensive.

    Probably you’re going to make a lot of success in the future, if you aren’t successful already!

    • Hi Chester

      Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed reading the review. The headband will connect to almost any device, computer, smartphone, tablets, radios through Bluetooth so you wouldn’t necessarily require a phone. I hope this helps

      All the Best


  3. Hi,
    I would like more information about the issue of the wiring is for all head bands types of just the wired type?
    Would it be comfortable as a sleep mask as well?
    How long does the battery last in the Wireless type?
    Is there any care instructions available to view in detail before purchase.
    I understand click on the link to product website has most of the answers but would like to see on your site then all I have to do is just purchase.
    Very interested in the product.
    Thank you

    • Hi Shaun

      Thank you for your questions and feedback
      The wireless headband has a charging time of 3 hours and up to 10 hours battery life.
      The headband could be worn as a sleep mask however there may be some additional adjusting of the speakers to accommodate that.
      SleepPhones can be washed by hand or in the washing machine. You would remove the speakers and wiring from the headband before placing it into water. The headbands are pre-shrunk so they can be placed in the dryer safely.
      Some people who have purchased the corded version have found that when sleeping and moving side to side the cords were pulled on and eventually one of the speakers stopped working.
      I hope that I’ve satisfied your questions and that you keep me posted if you do decide to purchase SleepPhones. Come back and let me know what you think of them.

      All the Best

  4. Thanks, Tracy. I tried CozyPhones but didn’t have much luck with them. They just didn’t seem to fit well so I spent most of my time fiddling with them. I’ll look into these.

    • Hi Scott,

      Thank you for your comment.
      You’ll find that SleepPhones come in a variety of options that will allow for better positioning around your head. Some do have some difficulty with positioning. Check out this review from a customer who purchased the SleepPhones and the response provided by SleepPhones:

      “The sound(especially vocal) completely died. Sounds tinny and distant. So disappointing given the price and the fact that the speakers inside move around a lot. This is a fiddly product and, yes, I bought the right size ! They also hurt my ears if I fell asleep with them on as I am a side-sleeper.”

      SleepPhone’s Response:
      Our sincerest apologies you were not satisfied with your purchase! Regarding the headband, having the proper size headband (with a snug fit) is crucial not only for comfort but for sound purposes too. A proper fitting headband will prevent the speakers from sliding around while in use as well as the headband slipping. Having too snug of a headband, however, might cause discomfort as the speakers would be pressing into your ears.

      Again, our deepest apologies for the difficulty you experienced! Please contact our customer support team via email ( or phone (1-877-838-4790, Monday through Friday, 8am – 5pm ET) and we would be more than happy to assist you!

      If you decide to go ahead and give them a try I do hope your experience is a better one than the previous one you had with the other product.

      All the best to you


  5. Hi Tracy,
    I found your review of the SleepPhones very interesting. As a wife of someone that snores and uses a cpap machine, having something like ths would be very valuable to me. My one concern would be with the wiring issue. If they are supposed to be washable, but the wiring is delicate how long will they last? I know for myself I would definitely want to be able to wash them if I am sleeping in them.
    Also wondering how well they stay on. I have never had much luck with other basic headbands.
    Thank you for sharing this info though.

    • Hi Annette

      Thank you for taking the time to comment. Your concerns regarding the wiring are very valid, I can tell you that the wiring is actually attached to the flat speakers that lyes with the headband and when it comes time to wash them you would remove the speaker’s and wiring attached.

      Size matters when ordering these headbands, it is recommended that you measure the circumference of your head to ensure you get the right size headband, this will help to avoid issues with it staying on your head.

      I hope I have helped clarify for you how the headband works.

      Best Wishes


  6. I just love this article with the information on sleep phones, so after reading your article I am interested in learning more about these sleep phones and my questions for you is are these really comfortable to sleep with them on? I also am wondering how will they stay on my head as I am sleeping during the night, I don’t sleep well and I toss and turn a whole lot?

    Thank you

    • Hi Jeff

      Thank you for your comment. I can tell you from my own experience with my SleepPhone Effortless Version that they are absolutely comfortable to sleep with. I don’t have trouble with them at all. Some reviewers complain about the speakers moving around in the headband while they sleep but I haven’t experienced this with mine. The thin felt speakers are placed inside the headband and positioned alongside your ears where they rest. I have not had any issues with the speakers moving inside the band as the felt sticks to the band material.

      I hope I’ve helped to answer some of your questions regarding SleepPhones. Please feel free to reach out if you have additional questions

      All the best


  7. I have actually looked into these before. Not for myself so much, although reading this I think I could also benefit, but for my daughter who just can never seem to fall asleep. Shes a teenager and I wonder if something like this could help her out. Do you have much information from people who have tried these with older kids?

    • Hi Tara

      Thank you for your feedback. Yes, these headphones are intended to help with soothing sounds while sleeping in comfort. Something to keep in mind if considering purchasing the headband is that the volume doesn’t block sound out fully, it is merely minimal noise blocking. For safety reasons, it’s developed so that emergency alarms could still be heard, so if your teenager likes louder sounds, this may not be a good product, for them, however, if you’re looking for softer sounds, this would be a great product. Consumers have also indicated in several reviews that the headband was extremely comfortable. I’ll be able to give you more details once arrives, it’s on order 🙂

  8. Tracy,

    This sounds like an excellent product! I have been suffering from insomnia, for most nights that I sleep early, I do get up a few times, and find it hard to get back to sleep. I would seriously consider getting one of these, having tried methods like lavendar oil and many others.

    • Hi Bee

      Thank you for your comment. I would recommend this product for your current situation. Many reviewers have commented that the headbands are extremely comfortable to sleep in and have had much success with them.
