Kokoon Headphone Reviews
Sleep issues are affecting an ever-growing amount of people around the world.
In the United States alone, it is estimated that over a quarter of adults have trouble sleeping most nights. The cost on our health (and our wallets) is not negligible, with depression, obesity, and accidents often being linked to sleep deprivation.
Lack of sleep is in fact what inspired Tim Antos to create Kokoon. Tim had difficulties with sleep, in large part due to a stressful period at work. He consulted a sleep clinic which helped solve his problem with the help of audio techniques. From there, Kokoon was born. Kokoon headphones have been “re-imagined from the ground up” to specifically help you fall asleep faster and the improve the quality of your sleep by removing disruptions, while most importantly being comfortable enough to sleep in.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT KOKOON?
Below is a collection of reviews from around the internet collected the press, with customers and on specialised review sites.
MORE ABOUT KOKOON
Kokoon helps people sleep thanks to its technology packed headphones. Kokoon headphones are equipped with sleep sensing technology (built in EEG sensors and an accelerometer) to track your sleep, active and passive noise cancellation to protect your sleep.
The headphones are combined to a powerful app that hosts a library of sleep aiding programs, tracks your sleep and that automatically adjusts your audio to you sleep level.
These are clearly not just a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, but a true sleep aiding solution.
As Kokoon headphones have been created to wear during sleep, comfort was at the heart of their product, especially for side sleepers.
To achieve this, they have moved the headphone’s electronics to the headband and developed the Flexmould Comfort System™ which spreads pressure from sensitive areas and boosts comfort.
They have also developed a special cushioning airflow system which means your ears stay cool while also creating an acoustic seal that prevents sound waves from entering the ear cup.
PROTECTING YOU FROM SURROUNDING NOISE
Once you fall asleep, it’s important to protect you from disrupting noises that could awake you.
Kokoon headphones do this in 3 ways:
- The audio seal we have discussed above, that stops sound waves from actually entering the earcups.
- Active noise cancellation to cancel out sounds around you
- Active white noise which is introduced as you fall asleep and is specifically designed to mask disturbances and helps promote better quality sleep.
Kokoon has developed miniature dry EEG sensors that are discreetly incorporated within the earphone as well as an accelerometer and a gyroscope, that allow the Kokoon app to actively track how deeply you’re sleeping, as well as enabling it to adjust your audio to help block out external noises.
AN INTELLIGENT SLEEP APP
The headphones connect to Kokoon’s Android and iOS smartphone apps via Bluetooth.
The app holds a library of audio programs to help you sleep or just relax: a selection of CBT based audio techniques specifically designed to help people fall asleep is available, as well as shorter guided relaxation programs, sleep aiding music and soundscapes.
A well as helping you fall asleep the app also helps keep you asleep thanks to the active tracking of your sleep.
This happens when the app, via the headphones’ sleep sensors, detects that you are falling asleep, and fades out whatever audio you are listening to, gently replacing it with active white noise that helps keep you asleep.
Although Kokoon’s key focus is sleep, the headphones also do a great job at being… well, headphones. The quality of audio has been pointed out by many as being on par with the biggest names.
If the 11-hour Bluetooth battery life isn’t enough, you can also connect the headphones with a 3.5mm jack cable (provided in the Kokoon package) with a built-in microphone to enable hands-free call control.
