I'll go against the grain here and say that I've always used relatively expensive pillows with very little success. They always make my neck ache and have never seemed like they were very good quality.
Got this pillow and it completely changed my life. It was the pillow my ex used and I always loved it, so I looked at what kind of pillow it was and got one for myself.
Appears to be $17 right now but at the time I bought it, it was $8 brand new. No more neck pain or headaches, and my sleep quality has increased drastically since using it.
In addition to the one posted below, which I'm sure is great, I got this one for Christmas 2018, and it's been amazing. I used to always wake up with neck and shoulder pain and this has significantly decreased it. Every now and then I sleep wrong, but it's very rare. It's also held up in incredible shape for over 1.5 years now. It looks and feels the same as the day I got it.
Best Pillow I have ever owned.

It’s supposed to get here today! Hopefully it doesn’t have a smell so I can use it tonight lol 😂
Go with a shredded memory foam pillow. I picked up two of these for $20 a piece and they have been a game changer so far.
