Why? We spend one-third of our lives asleep - a critical restorative period that impacts the quality of our days. We invented SleepPhones to relieve stress by relaxing to music in bed, comfortably.

Sleeping in traditional headphones just isn't comfortable.  You can't lay on your side with bulky suction cups around your ears. And ear buds?  They hurt after 10 minutes and give you an annoying pain in your ear.  Both can leave you tangled up in a mess of wires in bed.

SleepPhones® Effortless are wireless (Bluetooth®), soft, and stretchy headphones.  All electronic components in the headband are less than 4mm in thickness, including the 13-hour battery.

That means you can comfortably sleep in bed while wearing SleepPhones all night long.

SleepPhones® Effortless are super easy to use. Simply press a button to turn on the music. It pairs with your Bluetooth-enabled phone (i.e. all iPhones or Android phones) and will play all music apps such as iTunes, Pandora, Spotify and the SleepPhones sleep music app.

  • To increase the volume, just press the up button.  
  • To skip a song, double click the up button.
  • To talk on the phone, the built-in microphone automatically works too.
  • When you run out of music, SleepPhones automatically goes to stand-by/energy-saving mode.  No need to wake up to turn anything off.
  • To charge, simply tuck in to the induction charging base.

Best of all, SleepPhones isn't just some theoretical idea.  Over 500,000 people have already bought and love their SleepPhones. 95% of surveyed customers would recommend SleepPhones. 2,000 reviews on Amazon agree! 

The Effortless version will be the 4th generation of our Wireless product, and improvements have been made for increased comfort & battery life. Plus, we've added a microphone and induction charging!

All electronics within the washable, hypoallergenic headband are thin and flexible, cushioned with a soft silicone case to make listening to music in bed a dream.

Available colors:

We believe that technology should make our lives easier and stress-free. That's why we developed the SleepPhones® Effortless. Please join us in creating a better world, full of happier, healthier, and well-rested people!

    SleepPhones Effortless won a 2015 CES Innovation Award!

Other awards AcousticSheep LLC has won for its innovations, design, and business quality:

 What a good night's sleep sounds like...

RunPhones® headphones are the world's most comfortable headphones for running and exercising. The product’s innovative, over the ear design features ultra-slim headphones embedded inside of a sporty, moisture-wicking, machine-washable headband.

Ambient noise filters through the band, allowing you to stay in tune with your surroundings. Unlike ear buds, RunPhones stay put, letting you focus on your workout, not on managing your headphones.

RunPhones® shares electronic components with SleepPhones® but has a lighter weight, mesh headband.  When unlocked, you'll receive the same induction charging components as the SleepPhones® Effortless but in a RunPhones headband.

"As a doctor, I was getting calls late at night. To get back to sleep, I wanted to listen to relaxing music. But there were no ear buds comfortable enough to sleep in. So we invented our own. We've perfected SleepPhones® over the years, and I'm so excited to present the SleepPhones® Effortless. A great night's sleep is like a dream come true  – please support us!" - Wei-Shin

“Amazing Customer Service!!! Brooke was super friendly and helpful as well as fast in response time! I am really impressed with this level of customer service. Thank you very much for all your help. Keep up the great work with SleepPhones!” - Michael Larson

Risks and challenges

We are in the process of making a mold for the induction charging base. Your pledge will help us cover molding costs and overall manufacturing production run expenses.

We will need to fine tune the ease of use with our manufacturers before we go into mass production as we want to ensure our backers have a flawless product. We don't foresee too many challenges with this and have taken this into consideration for our projected delivery of April 2016.

We are a team of 25+ individuals and we have years of experience in creating, innovating, marketing, servicing and shipping our products all over the world!
