13 Best Sleep Gadgets and Apps (2022): Noise Machines, Blankets, Lights, and More

Somnox 2 ($599): Offering the same features as the original in a more compact package with better battery life and an upgraded speaker, the Somnox 2 (6/10, WIRED Review) can help you fall asleep. The addition of Bluetooth streaming (iOS only for now) to listen to your own choice of content is also welcome, but this gadget is just too expensive.

Sensation 2 ($299): This strange device is like a large vibrating pebble that you place on your chest for short relaxation sessions (between 10 and 30 minutes). Manufacturers claim that the vibrations can help tone your vagus nerve to improve your heart rate variability (or HRV). I’m skeptical, and it seems very expensive for what it is, but the vibrations, guided controlled breathing, and original soundscapes are very relaxing.

Jabee’s Serenity Sleep Mask ($40): While pairing Bluetooth earbuds with a sleep mask is a smart idea, this mask is too bulky for me and I found the earbuds uncomfortable. Your mileage may vary. The audio quality is decent and it’s easy to stream music, podcasts or relaxing sounds to the tiny earbuds. The thick mask effectively blocks light. In addition, it is comparatively cheap for a sleep gadget.

SleepPhones ($100): If you find earbuds uncomfortable or prefer to sleep on your side, this fluffy fabric headband with tiny speakers inside could be the answer. You connect via Bluetooth to stream your choice of music, podcasts, or soothing sounds. The headband is machine washable, and hardly a sound escapes to disturb a snoozing partner. On the downside, the control unit shifts and isn’t comfortable for back sleepers, there’s no indication of remaining battery life, and the overall quality is lackluster for the price.

Morphee ($100): A pretty wooden clockwork music box design makes this a desirable bedside unit and offers various sounds and meditations. The kids version looks like a super cute wooden radio. Both are expensive, and we don’t like the micro-USB port for charging or the limited 20-minute time for sleep sounds.

Muse S ($280): If you’re having trouble meditating, the Muse S headband can help, and it measures your heart rate, breathing, brain activity, and movement. But I found it uncomfortable to wear to bed and struggled to get through an entire night in it. It helped me relax but not for my insomnia.

Embr Wave 2 ($300): Worn on the wrist, this device can help you manage feelings of cold or warmth. It’s recommended for relieving hot flashes, but it’s also said to help improve sleep. It’s comfortable but also chunky, so not ideal for wearing to bed. We are still testing the effects on sleep quality. 13 Best Sleep Gadgets and Apps (2022): Noise Machines, Blankets, Lights, and More
