From sleepytime mocktails and eye masks, to white noise machines and aromatherapy, there are plenty of solutions to getting better sleep — but there’s one going viral on Instagram that you might not know about. It’s a Bluetooth speaker that you place under your pillow to listen to your favorite audiobooks and podcasts, mindfulness and meditation apps, or ASMR videos, without the discomfort of ear buds or keeping your partner awake.

This Amazon speaker lays flat underneath your pillow and miraculously makes it so no one else can hear sound but you,” the caption of an Instagram post by The Bargain Sisters reads. “My life was changed when I started using this speaker. I love to go to bed later than my husband and scroll while falling asleep. I no longer have to do it in silence; I can listen and my husband can sleep in peace.”

Amazon’s Lopuion speaker comes with an optional 30-minute timer setting, so you won’t be woken up in the middle of the night. The sound emitted is also soft and more whisper-like, which turns everything you listen to into a calming experience. Plus, because it’s so small and lightweight, you can take it with you anywhere to help you sleep while traveling.

“My husband was killing my sleep listening to crime [podcasts] nightly so he could sleep,” one reviewer wrote on Amazon. “I purchased this for a stocking stuffer and I couldn’t believe it worked. He could hear it and I couldn’t hear a thing. Awesome technology.”

Another person added, “I can’t sleep without listening to something. I used to sleep with earbuds but my ears started getting raw … I found this product which I put under my pillow and it’s perfect for me.”

You can also try a less expensive version of the Lopuion speaker to see if this method works for you. This model from ARQRAY is on sale right now for just under $15.

Use one of these pillow speakers to enjoy your nighttime listening without disturbing your ears or your partner, and you may just find yourself drifting into a faster, deeper sleep — especially if you’re a side sleeper.
