Do You Love ASMR?
Have you ever become pleasantly zoned out while watching Bob Ross or listening to someone tap their nails? If so, then you've probably experienced ASMR.
ASMR (or autonomous sensory meridian response) is a deeply relaxing experience in which certain sounds trigger a tingly feeling in your body. People describe it as chill, blissful, even euphoric–and it can be brought on by something as simple as listening to someone brush their hair, whisper, or crinkle paper. It may sound a little out there, but it's hugely popular. (Perhaps you've read about how Cardi B's a fan or seen the ASMR commercial featuring Zoë Kravitz?)
Whether you're a longtime ASMR enthusiast or just curious, we have a first of its kind product that we think you'll love.
Experience ASMR Like Never Before
It's called SleepPhones®: ASMR Edition, and it's the first headphones to come preloaded with ASMR content. (Eight hours, in fact!)
And these aren't just any headphones–they're SleepPhones®, the world's most comfortable headphones for sleeping and relaxing. SleepPhones® feature flat speakers in a soft, stretchy headband. They also contain a thin, flexible module with a button that lets you play, pause, skip tracks, and control the volume. With SleepPhones®: ASMR Edition, there's no external device or cords–just simple headphones that can play for 20 hours from a three-hour charge.
You'll love the superior sound quality from the eco-friendly, lead-free speakers. Ditto for the comfortable headband made from our proprietary SheepCloud™ fabric. Our headbands are machine washable and come in two fabrics: warm Fleece and moisture-wicking Breeze. You can also choose from three sizes and lots of great colors!
Get Ready to Tingle
We worked with 16 top ASMRtists from all over the world to create the preloaded recordings for SleepPhones®: ASMR Edition. You'll enjoy everything from rhythmic tapping to light scratching to peaceful Italian whisperings. And you'll enjoy lots of it because these artists have recorded 8 hours of deeply relaxing ASMR content for your listening pleasure!
Imagine slipping a soft, pliable headband over your ears. A small button in the back of the headband cues hours of ASMR to start playing. This button also lets you adjust the volume and skip tracks. There are no ads, no blue light from a device, and no scrolling–just a whole lot of incredibly relaxing ASMR ready for you to enjoy.

Your Support Matters
With your backing, we will be able to secure our first shipment of SleepPhones®: ASMR Edition. As a self-funded, inventory-based business, we must put forth a substantial level of investment to design, manufacture, ship, and store a new product. Any amount you pledge will help us get one step closer to making SleepPhones®: ASMR Edition a reality!
Here's a timeline of what's been done so far–and what you can expect when you back this one-of-a-kind Kickstarter campaign:
A Bit More About Us
Our company is called AcousticSheep LLC, and we're the inventors of SleepPhones®, the world's first and most comfortable headphones for sleeping.
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and that was certainly the case when it came to SleepPhones®. After taking patient phone calls late into the night, Dr. Wei-Shin Lai wanted to listen to relaxing music in bed. But only bulky headphones or uncomfortable earbuds were on the market. So she and her husband decided to design comfortable headband headphones you can wear in bed–even if you sleep on your side.
SleepPhones® feature wafer-thin speakers in a super soft headband so anyone can easily and comfortably listen to music, audio books, meditation tracks, and more in bed. Since 2007, our company has sold more than one million SleepPhones® and won many awards for our patented invention.
Beyond helping people sleep and relax, SleepPhones® became very popular within the ASMR community. Some of the top ASMR YouTube artists have promoted our products to their millions of followers for years. That got us thinking: Why not marry SleepPhones® award-winning design with great ASMR content?
Soon, that will be a reality with SleepPhones®: ASMR Edition. Our 2015 Kickstarter campaign for our SleepPhones® Effortless™ exceeded its goal by 656%, and we hope this project will, too. Thank you for supporting SleepPhones®: ASMR Edition!
Risks and challenges
The main risk is having the manufacturing completed on time and to our high standards. There are many steps, vendors, and components that need to come together on time. Fortunately, we have an established supply chain as well as more than a decade of experience creating high-quality headphones. While managing a supply chain is always a challenge, we feel very confident that the manufacturing process for SleepPhones®: ASMR Edition will come together in an effective and efficient way. We also ran a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015 for our SleepPhones® Effortless and will use that as a guide for this campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
