The SoftSpeaker™-2 has an in-line volume control built into the cord. You can use the wheel on the cord to control the volume coming through the speaker without having to adjust the volume on your radio or any other audio device.

The SoftSpeaker-2 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 designed a high-quality pillow speaker and encased it in soft, padded foam and put it in a teddy-bear soft cover (which 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, 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.

The SoftSpeaker and SoftSpeaker-2 offer the perfect combination of comfort, privacy and quality. Its durable, high-flex cord and removable, washable cover help ensure longevity.

Even Excellent Can Get Better
My first SoftSpeaker with volume control had good sound, and was well suited for the stated purpose. A NICE improvement would be putting the volume control much closer to the speaker. An EXCELLENT improvement would be a pillow speaker that could also be used to select stations. (Look. If we can put a man on the Moon . . .)

Great idea,but too quiet. You should be able to turn volume up louder than it goes. I can't hear it when it's under my pillow.

This only applies to the unit with the volume control. I had the non volume control softspeaker that my dog chewed up so I decided to replace it with the volume control version. The speaker itself is fine, the sound is good and it's nice and flat (I use it under the pillow without the blue padding).The problem is the volume control. It is about 2 feet away from the speaker! Now the thing is my radio on my nightstand is a little over a foot away, which means the volume control on my radio is CLOSER than the volume control on the speaker. Just plain dumb. Put the volume control next to the speaker please.

If I could give this speaker 3 1/2 stars I would, but it's not good enough to be a 4 or bad enough to be a 3. As someone who has used a radio shack pillow speaker (under ten bucks) for years, I expected a little/lot more from C. Crane. The speaker is tinny, which is usually ok if you just listen to talk. The volume switch is too far from the speaker, you have to follow the cord down to find it - not an easy task in the dark. The speaker, unlike radio shack, has to be facing toward your ear, and the cover is not very comfortable - and also has to be facing your ear with the padded side up.I would suggest making the volume control much closer to the speaker, a speaker that would sound the same from either side, a speaker that sounded better, and a cover that was more comfortable that could be used on either side. Too expensive for what you get.Radio Shack does have an upgraded pillow speaker, but I had trouble finding one and got this. Better to shop around first.On the positive side, the unit seems sturdy. I often pull on the cord to pull the speaker from under my pillow to move it and it feels strong enough.

  • Does C. Crane's SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker-2 work with portable CD players?

    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.
  • Will the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker-2 work with a thick pillow?

    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.
  • Can I wash the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker-2's cover?

    Yes. Simply remove the cover from the speaker and wash.
  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
