Sensory deprivation tanks are underrated. I mean, who doesn’t wish they could block out all sights and sounds while trying to fall asleep when someone’s blasting a movie nearby?
Now there’s a brilliant product (not exactly a sensory deprivation tank, but close) that tunes out the world and “seals in” softness. It offers the bliss of being totally away, without going anywhere at all—perfect for sheltering-in-place at home.
Enter the Watotgafer Sleep Headphones ($22), a soft, velvety accessory that caters to multiple senses. It blocks out light, feels soothing on the skin and (drumroll please...) has built-in speakers that connect wirelessly to your phone or tablet via Bluetooth. You can listen to bedtime tunes, your get-pumped-for-that-meeting playlist or that inspirational podcast in the deep darkness of utter calm.
“This is a great idea! I’m used to going to bed listening to music but having my phone under the pillow was an unsafe thing to do,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “I’m glad I found this product because it doesn’t only play music, it also gives me a complete blackout so I can fall asleep even if there’s light (like when I get to nap during the day). I think this product is very well made, super soft and plushy, quite comfortable and if I leave it a little loose I can actually sleep on my side.”
Made from a super-smooth memory sponge material, the sleep mask/headphones are comfy and inviting. They’re large enough to block light from all sides, but designed so well they never feel bulky. The Velcro closure makes it easy to get a perfect fit—and the lining is detachable, so you can take it off and wash it whenever you want.
“I bought this music sleep mask for my husband. It made a difference for him,” added another delighted shopper. “He is a heavy headphones user and this mask replaced them perfectly. It sits snug and smooth on the head without any bumps such that my husband is even able to sleep with it on. The sound is great enough for trying to fall asleep and listen to podcasts. He says it is very comfortable to wear and I actually see him constantly wearing it.”
Don’t know about you, but we’re making a list of every hard-to-gift dad out there and ordering these immediately for Father’s Day. This is the gift you can give to practically anyone—especially for dad, who deserves a little peace and quiet for at least one day. The mask has up to nine hours of playback before it needs to charge, and it comes with a carrying case for protection inside an overstuffed bag.
While we think of the Watotgafer Sleep Headphones as the ultimate in relaxation, the creators of the product have taken into account that sometimes the real world needs to get in touch. That’s why it includes a built-in microphone for phone calls. Genius.
