Compare meditation headsets with our interactive tool

A growing number of wearables are being designed specifically with meditation in mind. These are called biofeedback headsets and typically use EEG to gauge your brainwaves.

EEG waveforms are generally classified according to their frequency, amplitude, shape, and sites on the scalp where they are recorded. You’ve got five of them: Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta. Each has its own distinct purpose and function in life. For meditation, you want to aim to spend as much time as you can in theta wave state.

These gadgets are a big step up from meditation apps. Reducing your stress levels can not only make you feel better right now, it may also protect your health in the long-term.
