Recommended by over 90% of users and supported by clinical research, this revolutionary pillow delivers music through a soothing vibration which is audible only to you. The Dreampad has been called 'a spa for your brain' (Marie Claire Magazine), 'a miracle' (Mothering.com) and 'the most elegant answer to the sleep problem' sleepambassador.com. Whatever your choice of words, the Dreampad is helpful for all ages and sleep conditions, from stress-related difficulties to insomnia.


The Dreampad experience is completely different than listening to a sound machine or to music through traditional speakers. Dreampad music travels internally from the pillow to your inner ear, and it's that process which gives it a unique calming effect. Supporting research by Columbia University Medical and others show the Dreampad relaxes your body and mind as well as provides a deeper level of sleep.

We began over 57 years ago, not in someone’s mom’s garage or beachside out of a van, rather our roots sprang from a family owned optical business and true passion for great looking affordable eyewear. In 1962, the Obstfeld family sold their successful optical business in Iowa and moved to Arizona. They saw an opportunity to become the first major wholesale company bring affordable fashion eyewear to the Valley of the Sun. The business plan was simple; sell fantastic sunglasses in a place with year round sunshine at affordable prices. Customers loved it, and from those humble beginnings, Desert Sunglass has grown to become a premier eyewear company serving customers all over the world. We remain true to our focus of providing exceptional quality and styling inspired by the latest fashion eyewear industry trends.
