Mrs Gadgetshop is a very patient lady. However even she starts to get somewhat irate after I've asked her to sing me a lullaby for the 10th time in a night as I can't quite rock myself to sleep.

It was she who eventually threw the Sound Asleep Pillow at me. Quite literally. And my life has never been the same since.

You see this splendiferous product requires no headphones as there is a speaker built inside the pillow. And here's where it gets a bit Princess and the Pea. More comfortable than headphones with the soft hollowfibre filling, you cannot feel the speaker inside. It's ideal, as only you can hear your personal sounds, so your partner can sleep in peace.

And the thoughtfulness doesn't end there. Fear not, you won't be woken up later by the noise of your stereo as the sound pillow will stop playing once your selected songs end.

The sound pillow is ideal to take on long journeys for a comfortable source of entertainment, in the car, train or plane and other passengers will not be disturbed. It's also useful for listening to audio books or learning a foreign language, relaxation or self-help tracks, additional comfort whilst listening to music or the television in bed - and all without disturbing your partner. They'll love you. They'll love the pillow. You'll love the pillow. On the whole it's just one big love fest.

Maybe JayDubya was planning to wrap the pillow around his head somehow to benefit from the stereo effect. That would be so uncomfortable though - I think I'd be more comfortable just wearing headphones!

Precisely why I'm looking at it, although I do worry it might make my tinnitus worse...

Pillow SpeakersThese devices can be very useful if you have trouble … Pillow SpeakersThese devices can be very useful if you have trouble getting to sleep because of tinnitus. They are simply a small speaker in a hard plastic case, which goes under your pillow and plugs into a CD player or radio's earphone socket and enables you to play your favourite relaxation CD or music from a CD player, MP3 player or other sound source without disturbing the rest of the household. Obviously to use these devices you need to have a radio, cassette or cd player close to the bedside, the pillow speaker cable is usually only about a metre long. They come in various prices, about £10 or so, and are available from high street shops such as Maplins and off the internet. Some have a volume switch on the side of the case, with others you have to use the volume control on the player. They can also be obtained built into pillows but these are more expensive and less flexible as the speaker cannot be moved around inside the pillow to suit you and they are also rather large to take on holiday! There are some systems on the market which provide speakers in a pillow with a sound generator to go with it, but these are in a much higher price bracket.An additional consideration is that these speakers will be less suitable if you use a hearing aid as you might need to keep the hearing aid in overnight to hear the speaker and obviously this is not ideal. You do need to have or purchase a player or radio to go with this device, it is only a speaker, it will not produce it's own sound, and the sound source needs to have a 3.5mm socket (this is a standard earphone socket, most sound devices use these) and be within reach of the speaker cable, it also needs to turn itself off after a set time, unless you want it going all night (many radios and CD players have settings to turn off after set periods). Tests we have done show that the small mp3 players (such as the Apple 'ipod' type) do not produce sufficient power to be heard through the speaker (which is a shame as we had been hoping to produce an all-in-one package of mp3 player pre-loaded with sounds and a speaker). The Travel Alarm Clocks with soothing sounds that we have seen are also too weak to effectively power these speakers.Generally, although everyone has their own preferences, you should listen to relaxing sounds rather than jazz or the news.If you sleep alone, you may not need this, unless the neighbours complain about the noise

(and to all the other witties...)

Quoted as being useful for listening to tv in bed. On your back, 2 ears, one speaker each side might've been good? no? Great if you have lost hearing in one ear though.
