This is a real piece of garbage. It simply does not work as advertised. You can hear it clear across the room at medium volume. I figured I was buying this "Risk Free" because that it what it says in the advertisement but now they are telling me that I have to prepay the freight back to Great Britain. Thats right - I have to pay the freight (and insurance) to send it back. And I did not see any of that in their ad. Don't waste your money. You can get the exact same product on Amazon for about $30.00!
This is basically a piece of rubbish.
1. Even though it is advertised as working with an Android app, it doesn't. The play store says that ithe app is coming.
2. The sound is muffled and subquality
3. It has a bright flashing blue light when connected to USB that lights half the bedroom through the pillow. You can even still see the light flashing when you put it in its protective sleeve.in the pillow slip.
My partner bought this for Christmas and I have to say I won't ever use it.again
I. received this as a gift. I can't go to sleep most nights without listening to something as a distraction. That has meant putting in one earphone loosely. It works but it's not ideal. The Sleepbar is a big improvement. I would have been worried it would be gimmicky or wouldn't work well, but it's really good. It paired easily via bluetooth. It's not uncomfortable to sleep on. It's plenty loud when you put your head anywhere near it on the pillow. It's very quite/inaudible otherwise. It has a tacky back so it stays put. There really isn't anything I don't like about it.
1. Needs to have longer timer options.
2. Clearly, from the below comments, needs more volume and volume control.
My first gen I had from the very early days. I get to sleep so much easier listening to a podcast. Second gen has just arrived and is charging up! Excited to get going!
I absolutely love my Sleepbar. Highly recommend it as it is everything as described. I bought it because I listen to music to fall asleep and usually use a headband with speakers. The Sleepbar is a much better alternative because it allows me to still hear what's going on around me, if necessary. It's so great that my husband will steal it away from me. Time to buy him one!
I like to listen to stuff all night but my spouse doesn't so decided to try the sleep bar. It does last all night and the sound varies depending on the pillow like they mention. Just wish it had volume buttons and pause. Also the battery percentage on my phone isn't very accurate. But overall I'm happy with it, does what I want fairly well
Love this sleepbar. I purchased it to listen calming meditations at night before falling asleep. Earbuds are just to uncomfortable and I saw this advertised and I had to give it a try. No regrets.
I bought this because I always listen to audio books to sleep, and I am prone to ear infections, so the ear buds I use are counter indicated.
I think the device works really well if you're into white noise or music. Because I go for speech, I end up either having to crane my neck in funny positions, to make maximum contact with the pillow at the right spot - which means I wake up with a sore neck - or have it loud enough that my partner can hear it through my head and pillow - they asked me if I can hear the people talking outside the window.
Otherwise the product quality is great, really easy to set up, and does what it says in the box!
100% recommend for music/white noise snoozers.
95% recommended for solo room sleepers.
65% recommend for people who share beds/rooms.
If your house is louder than mine is, your hearing is better than mine, your partner's hearing is worse than my partners or your pillow works better for the conduction, it's still a great product!
I 100% recommend this item as I use it almost every night, it allows me to listen to podcasts, while my husband and baby can't hear a thing. I can listen out for baby waking or fussing and still drift off whatever time of night it is without disturbing anyone else! (I left my first one when we went away on a family break - gutted!)
Only issue is that you need to have volume at max on the phone to hear it properly
The product is amazing! Can't even tell it's under the pillow but the audio is crystal clear! Highly Recommend!
I recently purchased the Sleepbar by Dusker and I have to say, it's been quite the experience. The convenience of having a fully charged unit right out of the box was a pleasant surprise. Setting up the Bluetooth connection was a breeze, and I was ready to dive into using it.
One area where the Sleepbar could use some improvement is its audio quality. While using it to listen to a movie on VLC, I found that I had to tinker with the EQ settings quite a bit. The default audio profile seemed to have an overpowering bass, drowning out some of the finer details. After some adjustments to cut down the low frequencies, the sound became more balanced and enjoyable.
Overall, the Sleepbar offers a lot of potential. The convenience and ease of use are definite highlights, and once you find the right audio settings, it's a solid performer. With a bit more attention to audio tuning, this product could easily earn a full 5 stars from me.
So comforting. The battery lasts long if you charge it to 100% i love listening to audiobooks while falling asleep
This little speaker does everything you could ask for. It connects very quickly to my phone and holds a strong bluetooth connection. I listen to white noise using the speaker and the battery is very long lasting. They say it should last 7 hours but I would say it lasts a lot longer than that (at least so far). It also doesn't make really any noise when it turns on and off which is great for at night when you don't want to wake anyone else up in the room.
I really enjoy the sound bar. I dont really have any complaints about the bar. I do think you could take tech and make it better.
This works just as advertised. I’m very happy with my purchase. Thank you kindly!
This device is perfect for playing what you’d like to fall asleep to. It’s quiet and discreet so that your partner will not hear next to you. I only wish that it could get slightly louder, I seem to only use the upper half of the volume.
I had been having trouble sleeping for a while and stumbled on listening to certain podcasts to help fall asleep. But falling asleep with headphones on is a (literal) pain and playing directly from my phone disturbs my husband. The sleepbar is perfect. No discomfort for me and no disturbing my husband. I can easily listen to a podcast and now I fall asleep easily every night. It’s been a real game changer. Lasts me several days on one charge (and that’s without using the 30 minute timer function). Highly recommend.
It was exactly what I was looking for. I can comfortably fall asleep listening to my podcasts in bed without having to wear headphones that were uncomfortable and would get lost.
It does exactly what claims it does. Its slim profile means it doesn’t affect the comfort of the pillow.
Great product how easy is this. Put it under my pillow turn on the music wake up refreshed.
I love falling asleep to podcasts or sound - and this works so much better and is way more comfortable than any headphone I've tried to where. Partner in bed doesn't notice it at all. The sound quality is good, not great, which is why I give it 4 stars. But's it's more than good enough for what I need. Definitely recommend.
