The Dreem Headband Fights Sleepless Nights on All Fronts

Many Americans suffer from restlessness and insomnia, so it should come as no surprise that there have been a number of innovations in sleep technology in recent years.

Aimed at offering a good night’s sleep, the Dreem headband utilizes bone-conducting audio and a built-in EEG system to help wearers catch some Z’s. Although it might look a bit like a sci-fi gadget, startup Rythm has been developing the complex sleep system for three years, and it looks to be quite effective.

The Dreem unit works by monitoring a user’s brain activity with dry polymer EEG electrodes. Meanwhile, bone-conducting audio delivers special sound directly to the inner ear. Easily controlled by a touch sensitive bar along the top, the headband doesn’t need to be controlled by a distracting smartphone.

However, after a great night’s sleep, wearers can view their sleep data through the companion app.

Although Dreem is priced at $500, it proved in beta tests to help people cut the time it takes to fall asleep by 31 percent; good news for the slow-to-relax set, a population segment that includes more and more of us.

Slated to deliver this fall, the Dreem headband is now available for preorder.
