Worth every penny!

I love these headphones!!! I'm so glad I spent the extra and got the induction charging! It took some getting used to- you have to make sure the piece that connects to the magnet didnt get flipped over and that all the wires are out of the way (they sometimes try to overlap the piece inside the band and get between the charger and magnet), and it has to face a certain way to connect... it can be a little finicky at first- there were times that I thought I had to remove it from the band in order for it to work properly but

Best option for comfort.

I was definitely scared away by the price tag for a long time, but after using the cheap Amazon version for awhile it's safe to say that there is not comparison: it's worth the investment. The cheap ones are hard, uncomfortable and glitchy. I have been using the Sleepphones for a few weeks now and they are very comfortable and I've had no technical issues. They camouflage my husband's snoring and as a bonus they cover the sound of my noisy neighbours. I've also found them handy for more active tasks like exercising or gardening where regular earbuds won't seem to stay in.

Due to the high pricepoint though I will be a bit nitpicky: the speakers do shift around inside the band and I have to readjust them every use to cover my ears. They're also not any kind of earth shattering sound quality, but the average person wouldn't really notice too much. The same with the Bluetooth signal strength but if you only use them for sleep that won't matter at all. However I would still take these over the cheap ones any day. Even the more affordable wired version of Sleepphones is more ideal for sleep than the knockoff brands.

Pro tip: if you are exactly between two sizes like me, absolutely choose the smaller size as they suggest BUT wear it a few times during the day first to stretch it out. I wore mine to bed straight out of the box and I had a bad headache the next morning from it being so snug. After some use though it's stretched out and it's now a perfect fit.

Sweet Dreams!

Great sound and very comfortable, but not so effortless charging

SleepPhones are fabulously comfortable to sleep with and have great sound and for that I highly recommend them....

but the 'Effortless' charging is far from effortless. The magnet that is supposed to firmly connect the band to the charger is non existent, so I find I have to dismantle the headband to take the battery out so I can lay it directly on the charger. That's a bit frustrating because I paid an additional $50 for the Effortless model with the intent of avoiding just that. So 5 stars for great sound and comfort - one star for effortless charging.

So unfortunately at this point I will have to give three stars unless the charging issue can be resolved. If we can I will revise my ratings to 5 stars accordingly. Stay tuned.

Dear Alan,

Our sincerest apologies for the difficulty you've experienced with the product. We are going to email you some troubleshooting tips to see it alleviates your issue.

Can't Sleep without them

I have trouble with being a very light sleeper and these have changed my life. I am able to sleep through the night without being woken up by outside noise or snoring. The reason for only 4 stars is I find the battery often has issues with retaining charge or charging fully. I have had to have the batteries replaced numerous times. Luckily they have wonderful Customer Service and it is always covered under warranty and replaced for free, but would prefer if this didn't happen and the quality of the battery was little better. I most recently purchased the Effortless model and it is just so much easier not having to remove heh battery every time you need to charge it. Overall I love these and would not be able to live without them!

Takes a little getting used to, but WORTH IT!

As an RN who works nights, sometimes sleeping during the day can be challenging with the rest of the world awake around you. A friend suggested SleepPhones and I’m glad I got a pair! Super comfy and not awkward to wear - sound can be a bit too loud to sleep to if you’re using music (try white or pink noise). Overall, I’m a happy (well rested) customer!


I purchased the SleepPhones Effortless to be able to drift off to That web site recommends these also. I found that I not only use them at sleep time, but they make listening in the daytime more comfortable too! I’m purchasing a pair for my sleepless friend today!

Great Product and Even Better Customer Service

I have sever insomnia and bought SleepPhones Effortless a few years ago to help me block out noise & sleep better. They work perfectly. I've tried other less costly headphones but they're too bulky & don't work nearly as well. Since I've had my first set for over three years I thought I better buy a back up replacement since I don't think I could live with out them. I mistakenly ordered the wrong set. When I contacted customer support, Jenna answered. She couldn't have been more helpful. Jenna quickly and easily helped me set up an exchange. Wish all companies made such a great product and had such fantastic customer service!

Backup Pair

I have the original SleepPhones and LOVE them. I bought the Effortless ones about a year ago as a backup and for traveling.🤗. Both have saved me from a lot of sleepless nights. I recently had to purchase new speakers for the original SleepPhones and I cannot say enough positive things about my experience. I ended up ordering the incorrect replacement part. The evening it arrived I immediately came to the website and completed a Contact Us form relaying the problem. I wasn't expecting to get any response for a few days BUT THAT SAME NIGHT I RECEIVED A CALL😱😉🥳. I was so delighted. The gentleman explained what I had to do to correct my mistake and was super nice. Fast forward, I completed the return form and sent the incorrect speakers back and within a week I received my new speakers plus an unexpected bonus! Customer service, quality merchandise and a company that goes above and beyond is rare to come across these days. I've always been a loyal customer and have purchased these as gifts as well as owning two myself. It warms my heart to know that there are companies that still exist that value their customers and stand by their products. KUDOS TO YOU ALL.

Cannot live without my Sleepphones

I wake in the middle of the night, mind going in all directions, I slip on my Sleepphones and start Sleep With Me Podcast. I get distracted and fall wonderfully back to sleep! My SO never even knows it happened.

Great product!

This is a great product! I love it!

A good night's sleep

I've been using mine for over a year, if I don't fall asleep with them on (which is easy to do). I use them if I wake up too early, so I don't disturb my wife. Listening to your favourite podcast or sleep app in private next to someone sleeping has never been easier. Comfortable, good sound and well worth it, thank you.

Great product

Help block out snoring and other noises from those who are not sleeping soundly. Using with blisscoded sounds to get a better night sleep during these stressful quarantine times we find ourselves in

LOVE these

These are so amazing. They are so soft and they fit perfectly. They are comfy for sleeping and the perfect solution when combined with a sleep podcast like Sleep With Me. :) My sleep quality has increased dramatically thanks to these!

It's just amazing

I just needed a sleepphone that helps me to fall asleep ASAP I tried many but this item did everything what I needed.It is very much soft which helps me alot while side sleep.


OMG!!! I absolutely love these headphones. I wish I would have had them years ago. I listen to frequency subliminals at night and my old earbuds were killing me. Bought these and I sleep peacefully all night. I love them so much that I wake up and continue to listen. I can't wait to use them when I return to work. These are one of the best inventions ever made. And the best investment I've ever made. It was worth every cent. I've told all of my family and friends about it.

It good

It looks comfortable

Love them!!!

I absolutely love my SleepPhones and I use them every night. If I forget to charge them, I can tell a huge difference in my quality of sleep that following night. You barely notice them on your head and they are so comfortable! I highly recommend them, especially if you are a light sleeper (like I am)!!!

Soooo good!

I got this because when i go on any road trip I like to watch movies and listen to music, and sometimes like to sleep to music. Im the one that likes to watch videos in bed so when Im traveling I don't want to bother others so I just use these and they're so comfortable. I LOVE IT!!!!

Love these SleepPhones

These are the most comfortable sleepphones. The bluetooth works perfectly. I love to be able to charge them by just laying them on the charger instead of unplugging/taking them apart,etc. I sleep with them every night, usually with an book or a meditation running.

The Best

So far this is the best Sleep Phones I have had. I started with this company about 5 yrs ago. I gave my first one away to my niece who needed help sleeping in college, my second one I lost in an airport. So this one I hope will stay with me. I love the easy way to charge, the less bulky device and of course the sound is great. I really can't sleep without them anymore. I use audible books and go to sleep listening. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I just start the book the last place I remember. I really prevents the "monkey mind" from keeping me awake.

Can’t sleep without them

I really can’t sleep without them anymore. I used to use LG Tones to listen to podcasts to go to sleep. They were just ok, they really bothered my ears. Sleepphones were a life saver. I think I’ve had them for a 1 1/2-2 years and the module has stopped taking a charge. Fortunately this company is smart and sells each part individually, rather than having to buy a completely new set. I just purchased a new module so I can start listening again. Also a side bonus of the sleepphones, the headband stoops air from getting into my ear, which helps with my allergies, and keeps my hair out of my eyes. I love these so much, I bought my fiancé a pair. I’m so glad Dear Scooter from Sleep With Me Podcast advertised these, they’ve really been a game changer. Listening to podcasts at night really helps my anxiety.

5 stars, amazing sound quality, superior comfort

I have a pair of sleepphones I purchased 5 years ago when I worked as an EMT on 24 hour shifts. They helped me sleep when allowed and cut down the noise from the station. Unfortunately with time, they no longer paired with my new phone so I tried to make them work with a new Bluetooth receiver and a headphone jack converter for a year. The speakers kept cutting out from stereo to mono when I moved my head. I knew it was time to upgrade my sleepphones headband. I tried the cheaper ones on Amazon just to see. What a waste of time that was, they were SO uncomfortable and the speakers were horrible. You definitely get what you pay for. I ultimately went back to sleepphones and I couldn't be happier. I sprung for the Effortless design so I could charge them easier. It's so easy. I absolutely love my sleepphones. They're so comfortable and the sound quality is unmatched. I'm a warm sleeper so I got the breathable fabric, so comfortable! I can use my fleece band from my original pair still too when it gets cold. I wouldn't buy anything else.

Love them

I have been using Sleepphones for many years now. They are extremely comfortable. I started using them when they only had wired ones (which I loved). But these days I mostly use wireless. The fabric choices are also great.

I love these so much that I frequently give them as gifts.

Customer service has also been great.

Hi Roxanne, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We really appreciate it. 🐑

Nice! As described! Thanks!

Good in bed

I listen to audio books, especially at night before sleep. I have tried Apple ear pods. And head phones. Acoustic Sheep head phones are more comfortable by far. My only small complaint is that I still haven’t found a real comfortable place for the battery’. But still, they are the best for laying in bed. I like the magnetic charging system. I’m so glad I did not get the ones needing to be plugged in. Maybe a small thing, but it is worth the price to me. I think that a future product that could be made, is to incorporate the phones in a nice stocking cap for cold weather use. I plan to make my own and slip the set in pockets made in the stocking cap. (On sale in the lobby on your way out!). Just get a pair. Me wife also has a pair and the band looks good with her hair. But, on my bald head not so much!
Glad I found them

Hello Dr. Mark,

Thank you for your kind words! Regarding the placement of the module, that can be moved to the front or side of the headband. Many of our customers do move the Bluetooth® module to the front of their heads as this is more comfortable and prevents any buttons from accidentally getting pressed during your sleep.

If you have any further questions or concerns, 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!

Love These

I have enjoyed these so much that I bought my husband one so he could take it with him to Afghanistan. These have helped me tremendously fall asleep faster. I like to listen to meditation on them at night. They are very comfortable to wear. I love the fact you can’t feel the speakers if you lay on your side. The Bluetooth and being wireless is the best!

Dear Sheri,

Thank you for your kind words! We love our customers and want everyone to have a positive experience while using the product!

Sleep Well! :)

The Best

Bluetooth and wireless charging functionality is a game changer. Have owned 3 pairs going back to the original plug in type. Love them.


My pair of SleepPhones Effortless are essential to my well-being! I use them to play white noise and ASMR videos. Can't get by without them, and the battery charging system is excellent.

The answer for insomina

I have been always plagued with insomnia. These, along with ASMR and sleep podcasts, have been -the- answer to that problem.


I LOVE this product! Very comfortable and easy to use! I don't know how i've lived without them!
