You may have noticed this new acronym popping up on some of our products. RoHS stands for Restrictions on Hazardous Substances, and it's a directive that could have a huge impact on the production and disposal of consumer electronics. First adopted in Europe in 2006 (and later adopted in California in 2007), RoHS restricts the use of six dangerous substances in lots of common electronics. According to the official RoHS compliance Web site (www.rohs.eu), the RoHS symbol indicates that "new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain any of the six banned substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in quantities exceeding maximum concentration values."
While some military and medical equipment is exempt from RoHS compliance, the electronics governed by the standard are among the most common you'll find in your home, from radios to MP3 players to cell phones and (increasingly) computers. In practical terms, the standard protects factory workers at the production level, sharply reducing their exposure to hazardous substances. The standard also has a profound impact on the disposal and recycling of electronics, in that disposed substances will no longer have at least six of the most hazardous chemicals formerly found in electronics, and recycled electronics will not expose workers to toxics as they harvest components.
The SoftSpeaker™ is the first pillow speaker designed not just to go under your pillow. It can sit right on your pillow, closer to your ear, so you can keep the volume where only you can hear it.
To create the SoftSpeaker™, we started with a rare earth magnet speaker. We then encased it in soft, padded foam and put it in a teddy-bear soft cover tht is removable and washable. It's so plush you can rest your ear right on it. Plug the speaker into the headphone jack of any radio or smart phone, put it on your pillow and enjoy some of the highest music and voice fidelity available in a pillow speaker. It offers the perfect combination of comfort, privacy and quality.
We started distributing pillow speakers over 20 years ago and realized they break more often than one would think. So, we took up the quest to design a better, longer lasting Pillow Speaker. In developing this speaker, we also focused on the common wire break point where the cord enters the pillow speaker. Over time the oils and dirt from one's hands and face can cause the wire (where it enters the pillow speaker) to harden and eventually break. Our design uses a high quality wire and a very flexible rubber protective outer cover to help improve the longevity. To stand behind this design, we offer a one year warranty. This is unheard of in an industry where 30 to 90 days is generally the normal warranty period for a pillow speaker.

We always strive to meet our customer's needs, so in 2011, we introduced the SoftSpeaker's sister, the SoftSpeaker-2, which has an in-line volume control so you don't have to reach for your radio or tablet to control the volume.

The impedance of the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker-2 is 32Ω.
Yes, the pillow speaker will work with portable CD players as long as they have a 1/8" headphone jack. You may need a stereo by mono adapter (some headphone jacks are configured a little differently), but most devices don't need this.
We recommend our SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker-2 because it has the best fidelity. If it doesnt work well under your pillow, it will also work right on top of your pillow. We made the cover soft enough to be comfortable even when you rest your ear right on it. We haven't had any complaints about any of our pillow speakers disturbing other people whether above or below the pillow.
No, the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker-2 is in a sealed compartment.
Yes. Simply remove the cover from the speaker and wash.
