What ASMR Fans Think About SleepPhones® Headphones for Even the Most Quiet Videos

Customers have been using our soft, comfortable sleep headphones for ASMR for years. With SleepPhones®, you can fall asleep with headphones on and not worry about getting tangled in wires or having uncomfortable ear pain from sleeping on your side. Our most popular model, the SleepPhones® Wireless, connects to your device via Bluetooth™ and retails for $99.95. Here's what some of our customers had to say about their SleepPhones® purchase...

"I just bought some AcousticSheep SleepPhones® and I'm so happy omg. I generally need to be listening to asmr or some kind of video to be able to fall asleep and these are the most comfortable headphones ever- I'm in love."-@8Bit_Works

"Absolutely life-changing product! I have sleep issues, as well as suffering depression and occasional bouts of anxiety, and I rely on ASMR videos to help get to sleep when I just can't seem to relax. Previously I'd tried using earbuds, but those proved too painful to wear while sleeping. Having headphones that are comfortable enough to sleep in, and also are of high enough quality that the often incredibly low volume in these types of videos still comes through completely clearly is just phenomenal!"-Randy C.

"On god, @SleepPhones changed my life! I used to toss and turn for hours due to RLS, anxiety, and just constant worry, and now thanks to good old ASMR and these handy headphones, I sleep like a baby."-@all1w0nd3rland
