ROBERTS Pillow Talk Speaker
Fine concept. Very useful.
Brilliant idea. I live alone and it would disturb no-one but I find it provides a cosy way to listen. I have not had it long and the wire as broken at the point where it enters the speaker. Surely this would be easy to correct by strengthening connection at point of entry.

Better than earplugs for all night radio listening
As an insomniac for many years, the only alternative to getting up for two or more hours in the middle of the night, is to listen to the radio (although if following a serial, I seldom hear the end as I usually fall asleep!). Initially I had a pillow with a built-in mic. but was unable to find a replacement, so used ear plugs instead. These can be uncomfortable and inconvenient as they are easily dislodged. When I saw the Roberts Pillow Talk Speaker on the John Lewis web site, I decided that this would be a solution. However the sound level adjustment on the speaker is not very effective and the pillow needs to be a thinly padded one.

Good while it lasts-Disappointing
My husband and I both use your Pillow talk speakers and over the years have bought at least 6 via John Lewis but have found that they do not last very long.
The wire weakens then breaks then stops working. The wire connection to the main unit comes loose and again the speaker stops working. I contacted the company that produces them and reply was.. "Unfortunately it is unlikely at this stage that any changes would be made to the production of this item however I will pass your comments to our design and marketing division." We feel that some small designs modifications would make the speaker a more robust product and fit for purpose.

Great product for me as a tinnitus sufferer - lets me hear my radio at night without my wife moaning! Bought at a good price with excellent speedy service from John Lewis with delivery to my local Waitrose - can;t ask for more than that.

Can't sleep without it!!!!! Under my pillow it disturbs no-one else in the house and feeds my radio addiction.
Does everything its supposed to. Bliss...... Big thank-you to my daughter for the Christmas Gift.

Pillow Talk Speaker, excellet, useful product.
The Roberts Pillow Talker Speaker is real useful, I can listen to my audio books, comfortably without disturbing my partner. The sound quality is realy clear, when listening speech (audio books) or music. I like this speaker and enjoy using.

Good while it lasts
This pillow speaker has lasted longer than other, cheaper ones I have bought over the years. But they all seem to fail at the same place - where the cable enters the speaker at the grommet. Now off to buy my third of this make.

Good but easily broken
I have bought four of these speakers in the last few years, as they all seem to break after a while. The sound is good quality, but the switch seems useless and unnecessary.
Unfortunately you can not repair them, because everything is connected to a printed circuit board, so Mr Roberts can you make them more robust in future
