Muse, the revolutionary brain-sensing headband, is the world’s first consumer EEG device that measures and lets you hear whether your mind is calm or active as you meditate. While other apps offer recorded meditations, Muse is the only guided meditation tool that provides real-time feedback, challenges and progress tracking, helping you build a regular and effective practice. It’s also being used for research and clinical applications at over 100 health and science centres such as the Mayo Clinic and Harvard University. So it’s no surprise that positive Muse reviews are appearing in high-profile publications such as The New York Times, Men’s Health, Prevention magazine and more. Here’s a sampling of those reviews, as well as feedback from satisfied users who are transforming their lives and meditation practice with Muse.
