    Leo gets more phones! But this time they’re headphones – a new kind!

    Tuesday, December 1st, 2009, Netcast 972

    Leo got the SleepPhones System. They solve a real problem for people who like to listen to music, or audible books as they lay in bed. With regular headphones if you decide to turn on your side – ouch! You really can’t do that because the headphone digs into your ear. It’s different with SleepPhones. They’re like a sweatband with built-in speakers. They’re made of eco-friendly: Polartec fleece. And the fleece is made from 88% recycled plastic bottles, yet Leo says they feel soft and very comfortable. If you want to wash them the speakers are removable and the headband is machine washable. One size fits all. Leo said the sound was really good, but that the price was a bit on the high side: $54.95. The company does offer a “Satisfaction Guaranteed: Money back if it doesn't work for you” option. The company also sells a special iPod designed to play continuous loops of specially recorded music. The music is available as a free download on the company’s website. Extra fleece bands are available in various colors. 48" (120cm) cord, 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo plug, 32 Ohms, 20 - 20 kHz, 300/500 mW, RoHS compliant.
