The outfit was founded 6 years ago as its founder Tim Antos struggled with insomnia. Eventually he enrolled in CBT-I programme at a sleep clinic where he learned how to change bad thought habits preventing him from getting a good night’s sleep.

“I wanted to make all this knowledge, all these great tools I learnt in the sleep clinic more accessible to the everyday consumer to use on their own terms”.

The headphones come with a smartphone app that tracks sleep cycles and offers techniques developed with sleep professionals users help you relax and sleep. This includes the above-mentioned Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which is typically considered the gold standard treatment for insomnia.

All of this is personalized for the user. The EEG sensors measure brainwaves, motion, heart rate and environment. As you relax and fall asleep the audio changes, gradually fading out the content and replacing it with noise cancellation. This helps you disconnect from whatever is going on around you.

Kokoon originally raised a whopping $1.9 million to make the product a reality on Kickstarter. That was back in 2015 so the project obviously ran into delays. However, their 8,400 backers are receiving the devices now and the product is available for purchase to all.
