Sensory deprivation tanks are underrated. I mean, who doesn’t wish they could block out all sights and sounds when, say, aboard a crowded flight? Or even while trying to fall asleep while teens are watching a too-loud movie in your living room?
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.
Joseche Bluetooth Sleeping Eye Mask is 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. You can listen to your bedtime tunes, or your get-pumped-for-that-meeting playlist, or that inspirational podcast in the deep darkness of utter calm.
Made from a super-smooth poly blend, the Joseche sleep mask is comfy and inviting. It’s large enough to block light from all sides, but designed so well it never feels bulky. The Velcro closure makes it easy to get a perfect fit—and the lining is detachable; you can take it off and toss it in the wash whenever you want.
Perhaps the best—and most unbelievable part? The Joseche Bluetooth Sleeping Eye Mask costs only $20. You read that right. That’s 15% (or $4) off the list price, thanks to Amazon’s “clip and redeem” coupon.
Don’t know about you, but we are right now making a list of every hard-to-gift niece or nephew, teen or twentysomething, and ordering immediately. This is the holiday gift you can give to practically anyone—but it’s especially awesome for the frequent traveler. The mask has up to nine hours of playback before it needs to charge—that’ll get you as far as Rome—and it comes with a carrying case for protection inside an overstuffed bag.
While we think of the Joseche Bluetooth Sleeping Eye Mask 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.

Want to hear from some folks who love this eye mask? Here are just two of the many, many (as in, more than 1,000) positive reviews on Amazon.
“This eye mask is incredibly soft and very comfortable to wear,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “I could wear it all night long during sleep. Setting up the headphones was easy and it only took me seconds to connect the headphones to my cell phone. The control buttons are just on the mask so it's convenient to play/pause the music or adjust the volume. Sound quality was good too. It is extremely useful for traveling, especially on a road trip or taking a long flight.”
“This sleep mask works very well. It has a very good sound,” a delighted fan wrote. “It covers the eyes fully enough to shut out light. The stereo system is loud enough to cut out most outside sounds but still quiet enough to not disturb your sleep. I would recommend this sleep mask to anyone who has trouble sleeping. It would be great for anyone who has a partner who snores. It would also be good for traveling.”
