Description

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 started with a rare earth magnet speaker. We then encased it in soft, padded foam and put it in a teddy-bear soft cover that 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 manufacturing 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. The wire (where it enters the pillow speaker) can harden and eventually break. Our design uses a high quality fiber reinforced wire and a very flexible soy oil based rubber protective outer cover to help improve the longevity. To stand behind this design, we offer a one year warranty. This is unusual of in an industry where 90 days is generally the normal warranty period for a pillow speaker.

Size: 2" Dia., 6.5' cord with 1/8" stereo plug. Removable, teddy bear soft washable cover.

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

Check out Steve Kruschen's 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 an the SoftSpeaker-3, which amplifies audio from devices where the volume is normally too low and it can also compensate for some common hearing loss.

Read about Solutions for the Sleepless to learn more about how a pillow speaker might be the perfect solution for you.

Features:
  • Frequency response: 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz
  • Speaker type: Neodymium-Ferrous-Boron (Rare Earth Magnet)
  • Stereo signal is actively combined for true mono sound
  • Larger, softer cover for maximum comfort

Best pillow speaker ever
Super soft, super comfortable. Lay your head on it, put on top ear, all works. Lightweight, flexible line. My second one, older and at night, listen to radio when awake, puts me back to sleep and doesn't bother wife.
PROS
great fidelity, comfortable and non disturbing to wife.

Great Little Speaker
After about 10 years I'm on my third SoftSpeaker. It has the best sound of any around. I make good use of it nightly.
PROS
I prefer the speaker without volume control since it is used with a small radio with it's volume control at hand.


CONS
It is rather expensive and always seems to snap the wire inside the flexible plug. I've tried reinforcing it with electrical tape but it just doesn't work. I wish the plug could be improved. Otherwise I love this speaker.


BEST USES
Bedtime for late night baseball games.

PROVIDE BETTER CONNECTING WIRE !
The speaker provides outstanding sound clarity. The wire that is attached to it is a joke. I have had several speakers and in a year or two the wire fails where it attaches to the mike. I have tried adding a rubber tubing collar there to reinforce the connection, but it does not solve the problem. WHY NOT USE A MUCH HEAVIER WIRE FOR THIS PART??
PROS
Excellent SOUND QUALITY


CONS
TERRIBLE.....MUCH TOO LIGHT CONNECTING WIRE

Couldn't Ask For More
This is the second purchase of the same item. The first one still works but is looking worn after 4 years of use. I have tried other pillow speakers but none have lasted or worked as well as this one. It is small enough so that you don't feel like you have a rock under your pillow! Plenty of volume.
PROS
Holds up. Good volume. Small and unnoticeable under pillow.

Are there any Cons?

3rd on over more than 15 years
`just recently bought by 3rd SoftSpeaker in about 15 years. I live behind Genesee Ridge in the foothills west of Denver at about 7600 feet. There is no reliable TV or radio reception without cable or dish. I have an internet radio at my bedside and listen to various NPR stations across the country, depending on what program is on when I listen. My husband does not like noise at night so pillow speaker is perfect for me. I'm satisfied beyond words! Please don't ever discontinue this product.

Good soud,Comfortable to sleep on,Nice long cord

Great sound
I have found this works well if you lay it next to your ear. But since it is a bit uncomfortable to put under your ear as you fall asleep, your partner may still hear a bit of sound if you have a quiet room. All in all, this is the best pillow speaker I have used.
PROS
It's difficult to find a pillow speaker that has good sound. This one does.,Has a nice cover.,The cord is much thicker than others I have had.


CONS
As soft as the cover over the speaker is it is not soft enough to put under your ear and fall asleep.

Lasted less than 20 months
Came back to write a review mostly because I HAVEN'T found a great alternative and wanted to share my experience. It was a good speaker. Rating would be much higher had it lasted but it is pricey for less than 2 years of use. I was making my own and they lasted longer. Initial quality looked really good. No warning, never any static or apparent problems with cord. It just didn't work all of a sudden.
PROS
Nice design


CONS
Just died without any warning. No static or visible damage. Just stopped working

There are pillow speakers and then there is a softspeaker
The most comfortable pillow speaker on which to rest your head.
PROS
This is the only pillow speaker that lasts and lasts. While it may seem expensive,it most assuredly isn't. Other pillow speakers of lesser price last but a short time with the cord invariably breaking where it enters the speaker. This pillow speaker lasts for years! There's a dofference between cheap and inexpensive. The softspeaker is not cheap but it sure is inexpensive.


CONS
No replace cover is available. The cover is washable but it physically does show wear after a time.


BEST USES
Listening to your CCrane radio in bed without disturbing your partner.

2 years and running 750 nights
loudness depends on closeness to your ear, pillow thickness, and type of fill. Never had a problem, however, adjusting it to make it work fine.
PROS
all other brands of cords (Radio Shack) have worn out. 2 years plus on this one. nary a problem. happy to buy another if it did wear out.

Easy listening
Would highly recommend it. Great buy. The cover is very soft and comfortable.
PROS
I use mine 365 days a year. I never travel without it. I have to replace them every so often because I actually wear them out! As I get older (66) my hearing is getting worse. This enables my to hear my TALK RADIO shows when I go to bed at night. I have been using these for over 10 years now. They have improved a few features on it to enhance it. I highly recommend it...


CONS
Nothing really to complain about.

Love this & my wife so grateful
I love this speaker and it has become a must have for me over the years.
PROS
So convenient to listen with in bed an not disturbing others. Buying my 3rd today in about 10 years. Forgot 1st one at a hotel,Puppy ate my current one today. My own fault there. Ordering a new one the same day.


CONS
It can become slightly uncomfortable after an extended amount of time resting your ear on it directly but slightly shifting your head on the pillow solves any problem


BEST USES
Love it for falling asleep to favorite to my favorite radio programs & podcasts without disturbing my wife next to me in bed.

The best
I am purchasing my third soft speaker Can't remember when I bought the first one, but it might be about 15 years ago.. The last one I mistakenly must have left in a drawer when I moved. Have tried to get along without it...and it is not working.
PROS
They last forever...great product


BEST USES
One ear is absolutely non functioning and having the pillow speaker helps me listen with the other ear that I sleep on..

Works well, cord gets stiff
I find the pillows too fat, so use it inside my pillowcase without its own cushions. Its very good at not making sounds that bother others (spouses). The failure point is the last foot of cord near the speaker gradually becomes stiff, and then it cracks and fails. Presumably plasticizer is leaving the insulation. A silicone insulation might do better. And plasticizers are sometimes health hazards... But Im buying another.

PROVIDE A HEAVIER CORD 1
I have written before to CC Radio asking that the speaker be built with a heavier cord. I find the cords last a year or so and then fail where the extra rubber attaches to the speaker. I have bought lots of radios from CC Radio and admire their quality, but continuing to build these speakers with an obvious deficiency is hard for me to understand

A bit pricey but effective
Over time the wire gets twisted and this causes static in the speaker

I cant sleep without this.....
This is the best thing I have EVER purchased!! It doesnt bother your sleeping partner, its cute and adorable and I use it every night. I can't sleep without noise and I can listen to anything I want all night long. I bought two, just in case something happens because I know I'd flip out without it. Hopefully, you'll enjoy it also. C Crane is one of my favorite companies and they are honest, up front and have great business people to deal with. Try out some of their orphan items too. A good discount, not matter what, they'll back up their products.
