Let’s take a closer look to see what they’re all about!
Bluetooth Headphones For Sleeping – AcousticSheep Effortless
You know that a bad night’s rest can leave your brain foggy for the entire next day if you don’t get adequate rest the night before. Who doesn’t like to lull themselves to sleep with some laid-back tunes that’ll carry them into the dreamland peacefully?
Listening to music before bed can actually improve the quality of your sleep. It’s kind of like being sang to as a baby in order to calm you down and get ready for bedtime, except now we’re older but we still rely on the refreshment of winding down every night to stay healthy. (And we might not have someone we would enjoy singing us to sleep anymore.)

Instructions on How To Prepare Your Headband For Washing
Just like our pillowcases tend to absorb our sweat or facial oils, the same applies for the hypoallergenic headband you’ll be wearing all night. It’s important to keep your headband clean and luckily for us, it’s a super easy process that you will see below.
Here’s a quick instructional video showing you how to remove the speaker and Bluetooth/volume control components to wash your headband:
Bluetooth Feature – Cord-Free/Tangle-Free Night’s Sleep
With their previous headband model, AcousticSheep didn’t have a Bluetooth option. With the new and improved Effortless model you don’t have to worry about getting tangled up in any cords.
We’ve all had the experience of waking up in the middle of the night with a headphone cord wrapped around our arm. I’m sure you’ve also experienced the uncomfortable sensation of your earbud getting shoved too far down into your ear canal.
The bottom line is you don’t have to deal with those issues anymore. All of those problems have been eliminated. You can improve the quality of your resting time with music and an ultra comfy fleece headband that’s ALSO wireless.
No Wires + 13 Hour Run Time
One concern you might have is about your SleepPhones running out of battery in the middle of the night. You could literally leave them running for up to 13 hours without having to worry about that. Most likely you’ll fall asleep with them still powered on so even in your dreams your brain waves will be affected by whatever music you choose.
Wireless Induction Charging
A USB induction charging based is also included. All you have to do is plug your charging base into the wall and set your SleepPhones on top of the induction charging base. Not only do you get wireless listening, but also wireless charging.
The induction charging base works in a similar way that an electric toothbrush can be charged by placing it inside it’s charging base. The electric energy is transferred between the two devices by way of electromagnetic technology.
Binaural Beats For Enhanced Relaxation
Some of you might even enjoy listening to the sleep-specific binaural beats. These can help reduce the effects of insomnia and alter your brain’s resting rate to produce a feeling of relaxation.
You can find binaural tracks and playlists for free on YouTube and there are even some apps designed to help you get a better night’s rest. (It’s probably a habit more of us should get in the routine of using.)
Here’s one of the most popular collections of binaural beats that will tune your brain into the Delta wave frequency that induces deep sleep states.
One last thing worth noting about binaural beats is that if you don’t have both earbuds in, you won’t be able to hear the full range of frequency that you need to. With the SleepPhones Effortless, both earbuds fit snugly inside your headband, so they won’t fall out and disrupt the sound.
