This pillow speaker has saved a marriage or two ...

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 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.

"Finally there is a pillow speaker that sounds great." -- Steve Kruschen, Mr. Gadget.

Check out Steve Kruschens The Mr. Gadget Consumer Tech Guide where books are sold.

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.

Features:

  • Frequency response: 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz
  • Speaker type: Neodymium-Ferrous-Boron (Rare Earth Magnet)
  • One-year Warranty.

Speaker does a good job Although I wonder if having to turn the volume up so loud for it to be heard through a pillow case and the soft washable cover does it harm? As a general rule, I don't like maxing out any type device (in this case my C. Crane radio) to achieve desired volume, which makes me wonder if I am taking years off of the pillow speaker or my C. Crane radio.Anyhow, when I needed it most, it performed as advertised, as any C. Crane product; Wonderfully.

Very comfortable to use, and have had many of these. Not because they stop working, but because over years of use, the wire insulation at the plug end keeps breaking on me. So, when that happens, I just order up a new one.

I have ordered several of these, I use it without the pillow as it lays flatter on the pillow. I wish they would make just a light cover the speaker instead of the bulky one that come with it. Otherwise I highly recommend this as the cord is strong and lasts much longer than store bought head phones. I fall asleep with my CC radio on as it shuts off automatically after 1 hour then I find I am laying on the cord when I wake.

The SoftSpeaker is excellent! Spend a few dollars more and get the model with the inline volume control. Not only is this a high quality pillow speaker, it will instantly improve the frequency response when plugged into the earphone jack of any inexpensive pocket transistor radio. One will know hear bass! Remember, it is designed as a high quality pillow speaker, not a room filling speaker. I have compared the SoftSpeaker to a national brand pillow speaker, and the SoftSpeaker runs circles around the national brand. The sound quality isn't even close. As with other C. Crane products I have purchased, it is top notch from a top notch company. Mark from New Hampshire.

Great sound. Only downside is that you need to obtain a converter to convert the 1/8 inch stereo jack to monaural. Doesn't make sense to put a stereo jack on a speaker that is monaural. They need to pay attention to detail.

This is a great speaker, but I must say about this last one I ordered... the wire broke near the speaker end 9 months after ordering it. This really should last longer. The last one I ordered was the second SoftSpeaker I ordered. The first one lasted about 2 years. Now, do I like this pillow speaker... I am back again ordering a third one, so I guess I do like it. I also ordered last time the extension cable with a volume control. This product works great. I highly recommend you ordering it with this speaker. It blasts the volume up for those of us who are hard of hearing!

This is the second pillow speaker I have had. Both have broken in the same location after about 9 months use. This location is where the lead wire attaches to the speaker. I am considering ordering another pillow speaker. Which is best? What can I do to extend speaker use? Is the adjustable speaker less prone to failure?

The speaker is great; it is just as useful without the "pillow". The strain relief at the plug end is also top notch - - no trouble yet with the wire breaking or pulling out of the plug. We had a problem with the plug, but I think it was due to customer abuse, not a faulty product. The tip of the plug broke off inside the jack, making it necessary to dismantle the radio to remove it.

Love this speaker - the sound quality is excellent. My husband and I both use them as we listen to different radio programs at night. (Me old time radio programs, him political junk!) I do agree with the other reviewers that after a time (ours usually last a about a year) the wire attached to the speaker gets brittle and breaks. Wish they lasted a little longer but...oh, well. As long as C.Crane continues to carry them, we'll be back; we can't find them anywhere else.

Excellent audio, pillow comfort, etc. Terrible cable, becomes hard over time (6 months of nightly use), eventually breaks above flex connection. I suggest that C. Crane develop a simple mini-jack connection between cable and speaker and sell replacement cables or specify a better plastic cable covering in the first place.

Great item while it worked. This speaker worked great for about a year, and then the wire that enters the speaker must have gotten broken internally and the speaker stopped working. This actually happened to two units I purchased. Believe me, I am not rough with the item or abuse it in any way, but over time the internal wire connection at the speaker end does not hold up. This would be a great item if it were only made better. I am somewhat disappointed after having the same issue with two of them.

My wife and I listen in the middle the night to radio and have gone through dozens of Radio Shack pillow speakers over the years. These have failed usually within 9-12 months because of cheap connecting cable. We have had two of the SoftSpekers (my wife and I like different programs)and one failed in about a year and the other is performing like new after about 2 years; and the sound quality is far superior to the RS ones.Excellent product with the quality of other C.Crane products we have purchased.

I found the padding on the pillow speaker to be very uncomfortable. It is a rather large lump and not all that soft. The cord is also a bit long and usually ends up wound around my head, pillow or in the blankets. I was able to solve most of the issues by removing the speaker from the padding and using it as is. I also taped up the extra cord. I think a redesign is in order. Something softer with less padding and a shorter cord. The speaker is great.

  • What is the impedance of the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker?

    The impedance of the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker is 32Ω.
  • Does C. Crane's SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker work with portable CD players?

    Yes, the pillow speakers 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 work with a thick pillow?

    We recommend our SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker 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.
  • Can the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker be opened to reattach loose connections?

    No, the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker is in a sealed compartment.
  • Can I wash the SoftSpeaker Pillow Speaker'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.
