Care Instructions for SleepPhones® and RunPhones® Headbands


All of our headbands are machine washable! This is important to do from time to time to prevent the headband from stretching, which will also help to eliminate oils that may build up and weaken the polyester fibers. We recommend washing your SleepPhones® headband for every 40 hours of wear.

  1. Open the headband and remove the components (speakers, module, cord).

  2. Machine wash the headband on warm.

    Washing your headband in the washing machine (with standard washing detergents) and heated dryer (highest setting for at least 30 minutes) will sanitize it appropriately from virus, bacteria, and fungus. We do not recommend fabric softener. Do not iron or dry clean your SleepPhones® headphones.

  3. Insert the speakers

    when the band is dry.

    The right speaker is red and the left speaker is green. The softer gray side should be facing the ear and the coarse white side should face the opposite way.

To prolong the life of your product, we make the following recommendations:

Washing Instructions for SleepPhones® Headbands (2007-2010)

SleepPhones are made with 100% polyester in the shape of a headband and are actually washable headphones! Although we do not recommend frequent washing of your SleepPhones due to increased likelihood of rusting, we understand that they need to be washed periodically. SleepPhones have been thoroughly tested for the washing, and we are pleased to report that they perform very well even after multiple washes.

Steps to washing your SleepPhones:

If not completely dry before use, the sound quality may be poor temporarily, but will not damage the SleepPhones.

No fabric softener or bleach please!

No drying in the heated dryer (lest the cord melt)!
