Great question! Any sound heard by anyone else other than the user is called "sound bleed." All personal sound devices have some sound bleed. Placement, volume, and environment determine Head Spot's amount of sound bleed. At the max volume, it is no louder than a set of headphones sitting on the counter playing music. When the volume is at 65% or less, a person cannot hear any sound a few feet away.
Relax With Sound, Comfort & Awareness
It all starts with our patented and patent-pending Comfort Bone Conductor™ technology, resulting from years of research. We use foam technology to provide firm contact to your head without the pain associated with bone conduction headsets. Our foam-embedded bone conductors leave your ears open, so you are aware of your surroundings. Only the person using the pillow hears the audio; leaving everyone else in peace.
It's not magic, but it is magical
You hear sound but only you hear the sound the minute your head touches it. The plush Minky pillow augments your audio. It doesn't shut you out; it overlays another audio track over your surrounding audio that only you hear. With Head Spot's patented and patent-pending comfort technology, Head Spot is an audio experience like no other.

Questions & Answers
Can the person next to you hear it?
Is this product safe?
As a product you interact with, so closely and personally, we have carefully designed and sourced safe and appropriate components for your home.
Are the materials safe?
We use medical-grade CertiPUR-US foam that passes the most strict safety standard (CAL 117- 2013) and polyester fabric that is naturally flame resistant.
Is bone conduction safe?
Because the bone conduction does not cut the user off from the environment, it is considered safer than air conduction alternatives. Additionally, there is no damage from stimulus intensity and the constant ear insertion earbuds and other types of insert headphones. Bone conduction origins stretch back to around 2AD, then used by Girolamo Cardano in the 1500s. Bone conduction hearing aids are devices that bypass your outer ear and middle ear entirely and create a new pathway for hearing. Bone conduction is one of the original types of hearing aids and is still in use today.
Is radio frequencies that close to my head safe?
We were using the 2.4 GHz band, in both Bluetooth® and SonicCast™ versions, the same as every other Bluetooth headphone on the market. As a generally accepted standard approved by governments worldwide as safe for use near your head, we did not independently evaluate 2.4GHz safety. Additionally, our radio chips are placed farther away from your head than typical headphones.
LiPo Battery in the pillow? Is that safe?
Many plush toys use batteries without issue. We have incorporated safety features in Head Spot to reduce risk and isolate any battery issues. First, we have sourced a top-grade battery; most batteries you have seen on the news are cheap, low-grade batteries. These batteries have fault detection and mitigation integrated with the battery. A second battery management system regulates power safety, giving Head Spot redundant battery safety monitoring systems. As a last resort safety system, we sealed the batteries in the same fire containment compartment used in fire detector batteries. The containment chamber will deprive the battery of oxygen to prevent a catastrophic failure.
How loud is the pillow?
Head Spot is a soothing and relaxing device. While the max volume is 85dB, the placement of your head on the pillow will determine the perceived volume. The sound may be lower than 85dB if placed towards the back of the head. Ideal placement is to place your ear on the Head Spot logo.
How is the sound quality?
The sound quality in bone conduction is distinguishable from typical speakers or headphones. We tuned our conduction system to perform better than consumer bone conduction systems. Bone conductors, by nature, do not provide rich bass. Sound transmission rage is 200 Hz to 20,000 Hz.
