miPillow Wireless Personal Sound System From WestPoint Home Bows for Father's Day

Wireless Pillow Speaker Allows User to Listen to mp3 Player From 25' Away; Utilizes Exclusive, Patented Printed Ink Technology

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 24, 2006 --WestPoint Home, America's largest manufacturer of fashion bed and bath products, today announced the availability of the revolutionary miPillow wireless personal sound system in time for Father's Day gift giving. The system allows the user to wirelessly listen to an mp3 player, CD player or television through a speaker in the pillow, avoiding disturbing a sleeping partner and doing away with bothersome wires.

The miPillow package includes a wireless speaker/receiver, wireless transmitter, and lofty poly-fill pillow with a 233-thread-count 100% cotton cover that fits the user's own standard/queen pillowcase. Using a standard headphone jack, the user's mp3 player, CD player or television plugs into a battery-powered 49 MHz RF transmitter, which sends a signal to the battery-powered speaker in the pillow from up to 25' away. A special pocket built into the pillow holds the speaker. (Three AA and three AAA batteries are required but not included.) Touch-sensitive power and volume controls magnetically clip to the pillowcase cuff and utilize WestPoint Home's exclusive printed-conductive-ink technology.

The miPillow will be available June 1 at Linens 'n' Things, Fortunoff, Dillard's, Belk, the JCPenny catalog, Stein Mart, Fred Meyer, Home Outfitters in Canada, and WestPoint Home stores for the suggested retail price of $39.99.
