AcousticSheep has brought its soft, elastic SleepPhones headphones that are thin and comfortable enough to be worn while sleeping to CES 2015. The company aims for the headphones to provide music or ambient noise to users who need soothing sounds close by as they fall asleep.

Created by a doctor who has trouble falling asleep herself due to frequent patient phone calls late at night, SleepPhones allow users high-quality music options without disturbing anyone trying to sleep nearby. The headphones also provide a decent amount of ambient noise blocking, and offer 10-12 hours of use on a single charge.

SleepPhones are available in multiple models of varying colors, including the original wired Classic model for $39.99, a Bluetooth Wireless version for $99.99, and multiple bundle packages that vary from a three-pack to packed-in ambient noise CDs. New to CES, however, is the unveiling of a new Bluetooth version of the headset that will provide induction charging for an even easier way to keep the device ready for every-night use. The new induction charging model will launch in April for $149.


The SleepPhones and all of their bundle options can be purchased directly from the company's official website.

You missed her point...

Her point was not that the calls from patients are interrupting her sleep...her point is she has to take those calls and, AFTERWARDS, she has trouble getting BACK to sleep. I'm not a doctor (and I don't play one on TV) but if I got a call about test results or something my mind would likely be churning for a while working out the patient details in my head. This gadget is designed to help shut your brain back off after the call.

Seems like neat idea. I often use my phone earbuds along with an ambient noise app when I can't sleep, but they often fall out when I move around, not to mention yank the phone off the nightstand if I roll over.

I like this idea; I often listen to audiobooks or iTunesU courses when i go to bed to help me fall asleep, however, sometimes it is annoying having to sleep with one or more headphones in.

Turn your phone off?
Might not be an option? Could be that the doc is getting calls regarding patients and not directly from patients. I read "frequent" as "average for any doctor."

It might have some actual use, but for quieting your surrounding nothing beats disposable foam earplugs. They provide 33db sound reduction at a cost of about $4.00 for a dozen pairs. A hi tech solution would have to be a whole lot better than that to justify the much higher cost.

This is not about quieting your environment or shielding yourself from phone calls, it is about helping to fall asleep in stressful situations by soothing your mind. Where stressful situations in the cited example were the anticipation of phone calls and the phone calls and their content in themselves.

But if true, wouldn't you want to answer those calls? If so, why create this? If not, then why not turn off the phone?

Still looks like a nice idea, and would be even greater if it could wirelessly get the sound from the TV. My wife like to watch TV in bed, but I cant sleep with the sound on. This would be a nice alternative to the wireless bulky headphones they sell for TVs today.
