These features are all available via the application Dreem (iOS and Android) that you can download to program your headband and will be regularly updated to provide you with the most optimal experience.

Among the various features of help to fall asleep, Dreem offers to be with you through different atmospheres and relaxing sounds.

Serenity, Zen, Relaxation, music for relaxation and meditation are some of the most popular strategies for falling asleep. Beyond popular practice, the effectiveness of this type of sound to facilitate falling asleep has been scientifically demonstrated. These sounds hide the noise of your environment, like the ticking of a clock, the creak of the wood, the passing of cars in front of the house.

  • The excitability of your brain decreases. You let your body relax and slide into sleepiness until you fall asleep more easily.

Sounds inspired by nature

Our technical teams have generated customized, rich and realistic versions of sound environments known to be conducive to falling asleep. Transmitted by bone conduction, these sounds transport you through different atmospheres, which you will select in advance on the application: Allow yourself to rest during a drive, relax on a winter’s day listening to the falling rain or relax on a beach, rocked by the sound of the ocean’s waves.

Sounds synchronized with your sleep stages

To accompany you gently, Dreem will adapt the sound broadcast to the stage of sleep onset you’re at. This stage will be revealed by your brain waves, your electroencephalogram.
