Gear and Gadgets: Sound Oasis sleep therapy pillow with speakers

If you like to bring along your own pillow when travelling, even during airplane trips, go for the Sound Oasis hypoallergenic polyester fiberfill pillow. It has two ultra-thin stereo speakers positioned deep within the foam.

A 73-inch-long cord with a standard 3.5 mm headphone plug can link the speakers to your smartphone, laptop or MP3 player for playing your own recorded soothing music or any of dozens of free sleep-sound apps available for iOS and Android devices or via websites.
