January, 2008: It was a cold, rainy, night in St. Louis, Missouri and my brain felt sufficiently depleted after hours of studying for my next mechanical engineering exam.
News had just broke that the British band Radiohead had released their 7th studio album In Rainbows, and in a fit of excitement I downloaded the album to my iPod.
Armed with those now ubiquitous white Apple earbuds, I lied down on my bed in my small college apartment and hit 'play'.
Layers upon layers of sonic brilliance filled my eardrums, as lead singer Thom Yorke's haunting voice took me on a deep, somber journey.
Two songs down, the angsty and brilliantly ethereal song Nude began, and I found myself sinking deeper into my bed as I began to drift off.
Thom Yorke's falsetto rang out "Don't get any, big ideas..." and as I rolled on to my right side to get more comfortable and cross the chasm from awake to sleep, my earbud jammed deep and painfully into my ear canal.
I bolted upright, eyes wide open, and in a moment of disbelief I wondered 'why aren't there any headphones on the market made to be comfortable in bed???'
We've now sold tens of thousands of Bedphones to troubled sleepers all across the globe, and that success has allowed us to now offer other innovative sleep products to help you get the sleep you need to feel your best.
We've since introduced our adjustable pillow, weighted blanket, and sleep mask, which are all incredible sleep products that we at Moonbow designed and personally use to wake up as our best selves so that we can fully serve you, our customer.
Because Bedphones don't block outside noise, they make great workout headphones. That's why we launched Versafit, our sweatproof wireless headphones in 2018 through a successful Kickstarter campaign.
If you are a runner or a cyclist, Versafit headphones are amazing at allowing you to both hear your music and your surrounds so that you can hear traffic and other people.
