The story I wrote about the perils of secondhand snoring - something I know a LOT about - came out today. What I didn't mention in the article is a new product invented to combat this problem called SleepPhones...
SleepPhones are removable speakers tucked away in a soft, fleece headband with a cord that connects to your iPod, CD player or what have you. Invented by a physician, the product is marketed as an alternative to sleeping pills and an antidote to secondhand snoring.
The company kindly sent me a complimentary sample to review and because I am such a, er, robust sleeper (think: circus acrobat), I had a little trouble keeping the cord from strangling my neck. Thus, my inability to give SleepPhones my full, unequivocal endorsement.
That said, it's still a great idea and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend SleepPhones for more sedate slumberers and folks who travel a lot.
