Dreampad Review: A Pillow That Helps You Sleep

The Dreampad pillow uses a music app to play sleep-inducing sounds directly through the pillow.

Dreampad Pillow Review:

Price and Where to Buy: The Dreampad Slim Support Pillow (which is designed for travel) is available on Amazon for $149.

How the Dreampad Pillow Rates:

  • Usefulness: 6/10. If you like to fall asleep while listening to music, the Dreampad pillow is a good way to play sounds without disturbing the people around you.
  • Value: 6/10. At $149, the Dreampad is on the high end for both pillows and travel speakers.
  • Portability: 6/10. The Slim Support pillow is very thin, so it’s better for travel than a regular-sized pillow, but it may not be comfortable for you if you prefer a fluffier option. Note that you can pair it with a regular pillow for more comfort.
  • Durability: 9/10. The foam pillow and embedded speaker seem very durable, especially if you protect them with a pillowcase.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. Being able to quietly listen to music and not disturb others is pretty neat.

Final Verdict: If you want to combine a travel speaker with a pillow, you may like the Dreampad!
