The new SoftSpeaker-3 amplifies audio from modern devices where the volume is normally too low like iPads®, Kindles®, iPhones®, Samsung®, Chromebooks®, smart speakers, etc. It can also compensate for some common hearing loss*. May also help insomnia with white noise and in some cases tinnitus by adding background audio. Allows you to get rid of the tangle and discomfort of ear pieces and enjoy your radio shows, audio books, podcasts, late night movies and music at the volume you prefer without disturbing others.
It is larger and softer than our other pillow speakers for more comfort. You can lay directly on your ear or under your pillow. The controls are very easy to use at night. A stereo signal is fully combined so there is no drop-out loss from the right or left channel. A neodymium magnet speaker provides superior clear audio. The tone control switch can be set for voice or music. A rotary wheel adjusts the in-line volume control. It delivers high quality audio, up to three times louder than a non-amplified pillow speaker.
The SoftSpeaker-3 works with any device with a 3.5 mm (1/8") stereo headphone jack or line out. The automatic sleep timer can be set to 1, 4 or 8 hours and it remembers your preference to save batteries. Battery life is about 80 hours when using the "Voice" setting; built in battery level checker. You may need to lower the volume on your host device to eliminate distortion.
* We do recommend you see a professional audiologist for a hearing test and recommendations.

I liked the amplified speaker but the cables, at the point of entry to the amp and speaker are very weak. Mine lasted just over a year.
The speaker and amplifier work well.
Cables need to be redesigned. Too fragile. Lasted Just over a year. That said I ordered a new one. But I expect an improved like cycle.

I am about 75 deaf in my right ear due to an acoustic schwannoma tumor on the auditory nerve. It was actually a home-made pillow speaker that helped me find my deafness. But I still enjoy falling asleep to music. When I went looking for a new pillow speaker I found the C. Crane SoftSpeaker-3 to fit my list of needs. It is excellent all around. Sound fidelity judging from my good ear is great for classical music. The amplifier allows me to turn to my right side and still hear the music. I am getting well beyond the 80 hours from voice on the batteries, and can tell since I use music with a greater duty cycle that the batteries are going strong well beyond what C.Crane suggests. The cord is plenty long enough, controls easy to work in the dark - all around highly recommend this speaker.
Sound fidelity, battery life, long cord to radio iPad
Haven't found one yet.
Music or late night radio talk shows. Listening to Old Time Radio recordings at night in bed.

In bought this for a long-time friend who likes to listen to satellite radio at night w/o disturbing his wife. He loves it!! He can easily adjust volume to suit his needs without disturbing his wife!
Soft, comfortable, and loud enough to hear what’s going on w/o disturbing others.

The sound is great. The pillow is small and hard. I have tried every position to sleep comfortably on this pillow. I have not had any success. I had a pillow speaker several years ago from another source. It was wider and softer and very comfortable. I hate to quit using this pillow speaker because the sound is so good.
Not soft as advertised. Needs more padding.
For me .... best with AM talk radio stations.

Great for hard of hearing. No complaints about the volume. Glad to have the industrial battery in it.
Perfect to hear TV with out disturbing others.
Longer cord would be nice

I recently bought this speaker to replace a pillow speaker with no volume control. What a difference! I can now turn the volume up or down to correct the volume coming from my radio or television.
Comfortable on the ears and the volume control is more than adequate. It even has a timer function so it will turn itself off and not wake you later.
Great for listening to any device that has an audio/out port.
