History

AcousticSheep LLC 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.

They worked so well for her that she decided she had to offer them to all of her patients taking sleeping pills. Her husband soldered and she sewed the first 500 pieces themselves on their kitchen table. Initial feedback was phenomenal. One lady was able to come off of sleeping pills after taking them for 10 years. Another saved her marriage because she could finally sleep in the same bed as her snoring husband. Dr. Lai and her husband decided to patent their invention and start a real business. They completely sold out in their first year.

What are SleepPhones?

SleepPhones are the world's most comfortable headphones for sleeping. The luxuriously soft headband contains thin removable speakers to play any type of music, audiobooks, meditation, white noise, or talk radio. It plugs into any audio device with the standard 3.5mm (1/8 inch) headphone jack. Regular headphones and ear buds are simply not comfortable to wear all night long. SleepPhones are fully padded with nothing sticking into the ears and comfortable even for side sleepers. Lightweight, washable, hypoallergenic, and RoHS/CE compliant with the highest standards for electronics, SleepPhones come with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty and satisfaction guarantee. More than 9 out of 10 customers would recommend SleepPhones to a friend.
