This is good.

I have been using this product for at least ten years and have never had any difficulty with it. It does what it says on the tin. My wife is a light sleeper but has only rarely overheard it. There is a choice of three settings on the speaker housing and you do need to select the right one but that is simple and the result is excellent. Highly recommended.

The good and the not good

Good: I've learned to adjust the radio settings and have a pillow with a thin patch to place over the speaker, so I really can listen to the World Service or Classic FM in the middle of the night, in the dark, by touch, without waking my partner - the Pillow Talk has fulfilled the function well for 6 or 7 years. Not good - after about a year the wires break a each end, where they enter the speaker or the radio connector. The flexible plastic just doesn't protect enough even with careful usage. I'd expect better quality from Roberts, however I cannot find an alternative, so I spend £15 a year on a new Pillow Talk.

Really useful!

Very happy with this clever adapter - so much more comfortable than listening on headphones.

Does the job.

I think this gadget is excellent. The menopause means I find it difficult to sleep but with this I can listen to my radio without disturbing my husband. It was bought for me by a friend who has the same problem and also thinks it's good.

Usless

Really disappointed with this purchase. Bought on a Ferry so I cannot even bring I back.

A waste of money

I have bought several Roberts products in the past and have always been pleased with their performance. I was therefore very disappointed with Pillow Talk which is not fit for purpose. I used it as instructed under my pillow and despite spending time adjusting its position and volume it could not be used without disturbing my wife. I have gone back to using in ear headphones - a complete waste of money.

Nice idea spoiled by wide bodied jack plug

Adequate speaker for quiet pillow listening. The 3.5mm jack plug will in theory fit any standard 3.5mm socket. However, it has an old fashioned 9mm wide body instead of a modern 6mm wide body. As a result it can only be plugged into an i-phone if the antishock protective case is removed. Protective cases will accept the modern 6mm body jack but not the Roberts 9mm wide plug.
