Ask The Experts –

Do you toss and turn at night because there's too much....


Well you're not alone, and we got in touch with a up and coming headphones company that's pioneering a new way to sleep better. Sleep Phones are the product of AcousticSheep LLC, which was founded in 2007 by Dr. Wei-Shin Lai, a family physician, and her husband Jason Wolfe, a video game developer.

Dr. Lai struggled with getting back to sleep after patient phone calls in the middle of the night. She needed to listen to some meditative music to help her relax. But headphones were bulky, and ear buds were uncomfortable. Since there were no headphones specifically designed for sleeping on the market, she invented her own and called them SleepPhones.​

What separates your headphones from other companies? 

We wanted to be able to listen to music in bed, so we invented the first headphones designed precisely for that. We have a completely new headband design - using an actual headband that fits comfortably around your head. That's what sets our headphones apart - comfort. You can wear these all day and all night without hard earbuds poking into your ears or over-the-ear headphones that don't work on your pillow.

Side sleepers who like to listen to an audiobook at bedtime can share a bed with someone who wants to sleep in complete silence.To have a true audiophile experience, you will need to block out extra sounds from your environment with large cups to seal out extraneous noises. Or you will need to have ear buds that fit very precisely and also seal out sounds.

That will allow for a more immersive listening experience.

However, neither are safe during sleep. You need to be able to hear your alarm clock or emergency alarms.SleepPhones don't claim to have audiophile quality sound, but the sound is excellent and more than sufficient for normal listening.

Plus, SleepPhones are far more comfortable and safe for use in bed and during sleep.

What cutting edge tech is making it's way into the future of your users headphones?

I believe that making charging electronic products easier is the way of the future.Wireless connectivity is commonplace now, but charging the headphones can be inconvenient.

Wireless induction charging is making that process easier - eliminating the need to plug in a metal plug to a matching socket.

Our SleepPhones Effortless induction charging headphones allow for charging through the fabric, where magnets induce a current in a coil attached to the battery inside the headband. We just launched it recently, and our customers are loving it!

In regards to sleep phones, how do these benefit sleep quality?

40% of people can't sleep in complete silence. Often, they need to have a fan going, listen to white noise, or have the TV on low.

But they might have paired with with a partner who can't sleep with that same sound.

SleepPhones allow for the listener to comfortably create their own sleep sound space without disturbing anyone else.
