Like falling asleep to the soothing sound of whale song? Like waking up to the violent posturing of G-Unit? Yes, us too. That's why we use the Sound Asleep Pillow. It's a pillow with a speaker inside it.
Just set the sleep timer function on your MP3 player, attach it to the 3.5mm headphone jack, then lay back as you enter REM--while listening to REM. It works in reverse, too. Set the wake-up function on your and it'll play music first thing in the morning.
We've tested it comprehensively, and like the, it works surprisingly well. You'll have to tweak the volume so the person next to you can't hear it, but the cable is long enough so your MP3 player can rest on the floor.
It's very comfortable too, despite the presence of a tiny hat-shaped speaker inside. Oh, and in case you're wondering--yes, it still works if you flip it over to the "cool side."
You really can't go wrong with this thing. If you like music while you sleep but don't like wearing earphones in bed or disturbing your neighbours or your girl/boyfriend, it's ideal. Grab one now for a bargainous 20 pounds (about $41).
