Muse is a brain sensing headband that makes meditation easier. Meditation has been proven to reduce stress and increase focus, but it can be hard to know if you’re doing it right. Muse provides you with real-time audio feedback on what’s happening in your brain when you meditate, letting you know when your mind wanders and teaching you to regain focus. Think of Muse as your personal guide to meditation as you journey toward a calmer and more present self.

The Muse Experience
Sometimes your mind is calm and sometimes it’s active. Muse will guide you to a calm mind. Start the app, and close your eyes. Immerse yourself within the sounds of a beach or rainforest. While you meditate, the headband uses brain-sensing technology to measure whether your mind is calm or active, and translates those signals into guiding sounds. When you’re calm, you’ll hear peaceful weather sounds. When your mind wanders, the weather will intensify, guiding you back to a calm state. After your session, review your data, set goals, and build a deeply rewarding meditation practice that gets better every time.

Why Meditate with Muse?
Muse is the first tool in the world that can give you accurate, real-time feedback on what’s happening in your brain while you meditate. It provides motivational challenges and rewards to encourage you to build a regular practice. Personalized tracking, motivational challenges and rewards encourage you to build a more regular and effective practice. Experience all the benefits of meditation – such as relaxation, improved mood and reduced stress – with none of the uncertainty.

How does Muse Work?
Your brain is constantly generating electrical signals when you’re thinking, sleeping or even relaxing. These signals can be detected from outside your head, via sensors. Muse uses the same brain sensing technology that doctors and scientists have employed for more than a century to detect your brain signals, similar to how a heart monitor measures your pulse. Muse has 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – which detect and measure the activity of your brain.


EEG sensors allow Muse to detect and measure your brain activity, just like a heart monitor measures heart rate. Your Muse device sends this info to your smart phone or tablet using Bluetooth LE and pairs with Calm, a free app with guided sessions designed to train your brain to manage stress and calm your mind.

With in-the-moment feedback, you’ll learn to effortlessly improve focus as you unwind and relax each time you use Muse. Calm lets you track your progress and improve concentration, focus and relaxation over time.

Each guided session gives you real-time audio and visual feedback of your brain’s activity. Over just a few sessions – as short as 3 minutes each – you’ll boost mental fitness and mood while feeling more relaxed and calm.

Do you feel like you just can’t “shut off” your thoughts? A mindfulness practice lets you train, condition and enhance your mind – moment-to-moment and over the long term. By improving brain flexibility, you learn to shift mental activity to match what you’re doing, like concentrating at work or de-stressing once you’re home.

The Calm app lets you use your Muse to reduce anxiety and stress, focus the mind, boost concentration and productivity, all using simple, guided, scientifically-proven techniques that require just a few minutes.

The scientific evidence is clear on the benefits of building a mindfulness practice: reducing stress, increasing focus and improving heart health. A mindfulness practice is like an exercise routine for your brain. Benefits of mindfulness:

Muse is a fitness tool that helps you do more with your brain by helping you calm and settle your mind. Muse is a comfortable, lightweight headband with 7 electroencephalography (EEG) sensors designed to detect and measure your brain activity, just as a heart monitor measures heart rate.

Muse’s 7 brain sensors detect the spontaneous activity of neurons in your brain. Your brain generates electrical frequencies that are detected using electroencephalography (EEG) sensors along the surface of the skull. EEG technology has been used by doctors for decades. However, recent advances in sensor technology now make it possible to offer EEG in an easy-to-use and mobile form.

Muse teaches mindfulness with simple, proven techniques. Scientific evidence shows that by practicing mindfulness regularly, you’ll train your brain to reduce stress levels while increasing focus. In as few as 3 minutes a day, you can develop your own mindfulness practice to lower levels of cortisol (your stress hormone), enhance your body’s immune response, improve your mood, help you recover more quickly from stress and sharpen your mind.

Muse measures brain activities and frequencies that vary depending on your state of mind. There are five main brainwave bands Muse detects at any given time. Each brainwave band occurs in different proportions, and Muse measures the changes in those proportions as your mind works. The five bands are:

  • Delta waves – most present during sleep
  • Theta waves – associated with sleep, very deep relaxation and visualization
  • Alpha waves – occur when relaxed and calm
  • Beta waves – occur when actively thinking or problem-solving
  • Gamma waves – occur when involved in higher mental activity and consolidation

Calm is the first app developed by InteraXon. InteraXon, Gaiam and others are developing a variety of apps that will integrate with your Muse.

Absolutely not. Muse can only tell the type of brain activity you’re experiencing, not if you’re thinking about the color blue.

For just $249 you get a Muse Mindfulness Headband, a micro-USB charging cable and a User Guide. The companion app, Calm, can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, free of charge
