I absolutely love my acousticsheep headphones. Wearing them is a very similar experience to wearing a normal headband. They are comfy and with surprisingly good quality sound. I am a light sleeper prone to insomnia. Normaly in ear headphones i find too uncomfortable to wear in bed as they press on my ears when lying down. With the headband speakers i can lie with my head on the pillow, side down, with no problem. I can control the volume and skip tracks with the headband, without having to pick up my phone. This means that when sleepless i can listen to an audiobook or relaxing music without disturbing my partner, either with sounds or the light of my phone. They really have been a wonder. Enabling me to relax, rather than just lying in the dark feeling stressed by sleeplessness.
Blocks out noisy neighbours so i can sleep with ambient sounds. Good quality speakers and easy to use.
Lightweight and comfortable headband, ideal for masking any background noises and aiding a good sleep.

Great for Night Time
Great for Insomniacs
Have been using these for several months and love them. I have trouble sleeping and these are excellent at letting me listen to audiobooks to drift off without disturbing my partner. I also use them to listen to audio while feeding my baby, because they are not noise cancelling i can also hear the baby.
Quite expensive, and the battery could be longer lasting, however these are comfortable, good quality, and very useful.
I can’t recommend these enough. I find it so hard to go to sleep and felt like i’d tried everything but these headphones have fixed iti can listen to audiobooks, music, rain noise, anything when i go to bed and for apps that don’t have it built in, you can download a free app which automatically turns your bluetooth off after a set time (i use one called ‘sleep timer’). These are also so comfortable to wear that you can rest your whole head on the speakers and they’re still comfy. The controls in the back are easy to use, you can power on and off; pause and play; volume up and down; and skip backwards 10 seconds or forward 10 seconds from the 3 buttons inside. I was initially worried that they were too much money but now my dad, partner and a few friends have and love these too.
Listening in bed to help me sleep i drift off and headband stays in place. Csn use with my phone or ipad and set up with bluetooth is easy with instuctions if needed. Much better than earphone if your inclined to fall asleep listening.
I bought these to listen to guided meditations in bed after getting fed up with uncomfortable earbud headphones. They are simply perfect for my application. With these on, you can lay on your side without discomfort, unlike headphones, and because they sit gently on the ear, you can still hear things such as the telephone, smoke alarm etc, which is a major advantage over earbuds. I had a small issue of my own making and needed to contact the seller premier lifestyle for help. The response from roger was very quick and he went above and beyond to help me – 10/10 for service. Overall, i cannot recommend them enough and the seller support is first class.
Comfortable to wear at night, but the charging of the battery is fiddly, as you have to remove the battery to charge it. The sound quality is very good, and i use them for listening to sleep-inducing sounds (thunderstorms, etc) as i suffer from tinnitus.
These are amazing, got them to help my teen son get relaxed before trying to sleep and they work brilliantly. They are comfortable, charge lasts a long time and sound is good. Don’t expect noise cancelling as they are not but they are good quality.
These are really comfortable because they sit outside the ear, and the sound is better than i expected. Decent battery life too, as far as i have been able to tell. Headband doubles as an eye mask.
I bought this to use on holiday as well as home. Sounds great and easy to use. The reviews really helped my buying decision, thank you.
Absolutely the best sleep aid i’ve ever bought – my partner is a snorer and nothing has drowned him out – for the past 6 months we’ve had to sleep separately not good for a relationship. We saw these headphones on a sleep through snoring blog and thought let’s try – so i use wax earplugs (which i’ve always used) and use a white noise app my fave is sir conditioning or a fan. The first night i didn’t sleep well – took a night to get used to the headband and the pressure that this had to work – last resort. By night 2 i had got used to the band and the fan noise i now hear as silence. The only improvement would be battery life but i love these – xx.
Great product for tinnitus sufferers. Pair with the sound of your choice. I use a tone, but others have better results with white noise, rain sounds or birdsong.
This is my forth pair of these – i broke my first pair, then lost my second pair in a hotel room in nz, then lost my third pair in another hotel room and this is my forth pair now. . Which just proves that i cant be without these things. Whether you buy the bluetooth or wired version, you wont regret it. Don’t bother with the cheaper imitation versions – i made that mistake and then just came straight back to the originals. I recommend using these sleepphones with audible – the perfect combo.
Sounds quality and comfort are quite good, but first thing i noticed there is like 0 voice insulation, and the only thing protecting your ears from the outside sounds is music. Would be really nice if it had some kind of voice insulation material so you didn’t have to listen to music very loudly to not hear your neighbors banging upstairs.
Headband is too thick for summer use, for me any way. Mine also turned up with one earpiece not working, ok these things happen. I tried them out anyway and was pleased with all other aspects of them. Way better than getting tangled up in wired sleep phones and much better quality than the cheaper bluetooth models on the market. I’ve sent them back for refund but have ordered the breeze model with the thinner lycra headband, heres hoping the original broken earpiece was a one off.
Only small issue is that the buttons are to the back, think they’d be better at the front. They work great and are exactly as described.
I’ve had insomnia for years. The thing that reliably helps is distracting your mind by watching tv or listening to something. Problem was i got married recently and i could no longer just use my bedroom bluetooth speakers or google home. Super comfy, battery that lasts all night and very simple design. The only frustrating thing is charging it is a little fiddly because you have to take it out the band. But they’ve addressed that in a new product with contactless/induction charging. I’m into audio gear, having a high performance home theater/stereo setup and various headphones/earphones. These are fantastic because they’re open back – so they don’t isolate you from your environment and there’s no occlusion effect. That means you can wear them while listening to your environment. So i’ve ended up using them in the house too when i don’t want any noise cancelling. The audio quality is surprisingly good also. With headphones the base depends on how close it is to your ear. With how they fit on mine i get good output to around 70hz.
I bought phones after trying hundreds of different techniques to stop my partner from snoring. For the last year we’ve tried everything and almost given up hope. The sleep phones can connect youtube and play relaxing music. Although you can still hear things going on , if you use soft foam ear plugs at the same time then you can hear the music clearly but block out the snoring enough to get some sleep. It is by far the best thing we have tried. It’s easy to use and very comfortable, the only downside is that it is quite fiddly and takes 5 to 10 minutes of prepping every evening and charging most days.
Ideal for the purpose i wanted them for, i found them comfortable to wear both while sleeping and during the day. They paired easily with my smart phone, however my bluetooth mp3 player (possible too cheap) was more difficult to pair, in the end i bought a cheap bluetooth receiver – transmitter which solved my problem.
I love these, i use them every night. I like the fact that they’re bluetooth and that despite listening to the sleep app all night- the battery lasts. The sound quality isn’t bose, but it’s quite good. The headband is stretchy but not quite wide enough to completely cover my eyes, and the speakers are flat, so they don’t stick into your head.
Work really well and are comfortable.
Took a night or so to get used to. Had a bit of ‘phantom headphone’ pain the next day but was only slight and still much more comfortable than in ear headphones. Would definitely recommend reading the full instructions rather than the quick guide so you know how to adjust the speakers for the best comfort. Only criticisms would be that they could do with an auto off feature. I’ve woke up a few times with the headphones still on but no music having played for 7 hours. Also it would be good to have some battery level indicator. They do seem to last at least 2 days but i usually charge thento make sure they are ready for the next night. With both of these features i expect battery life could be well over 7 days. For sleeping music, i recommend ludovico einaudi.
