Adaptations November Product of the Month: What the Heck is a SleepPhone?

SleepPhones are a soft, machine-washable headband with tiny, ultra-slim adjustable speakers tucked inside that allow you to sleep (or exercise or travel) while listening to your favorite music, recordings or soothing nature sounds. Designed by a family doctor, SleepPhones are the world’s most comfortable, bed-friendly headphones and provide a safe and natural way to fall asleep without bulky headphones or painful earbuds.

We are now carrying SleepPhones in three models: the original corded version (SleepPhones® Classic) and the wireless blue-tooth edition (SleepPhones® Wireless) which can both be connected to your favorite music or listening sources. We also carry the “simple” model (SleepPhones® Simple) which features a cord-free WAV music player, pre-loaded with 17 soothing audio tracks with just the touch of a button. All SleepPhones are backed by a one-year guarantee.

SleepPhones have helped hundreds of thousands of individuals with insomnia, jet lag, tinnitus – and even those with a noisy bed mate – sleep better. And are also happily in use by runners and hikers as they exercise. Adaptations is selling the SleepPhones® Classic for $40 and both SleepPhones® Wireless and SleepPhones® Simple for $100.

The Adaptations Store is an official vendor for Aftershokz products, and to celebrate, we are showcasing several models of their Bluetooth headphones, including the just released Trekz Titanium headphones.

The Trekz Titanium Headphone is perfect for use while exercising – they’re lightweight, sweat-proof, bone conduction headphones that communicate with your device via Bluetooth.

All our Aftershokz headphones rest on your jawbone and send sound directly to your eardrum, without blocking your ears.
