My husband, a chronic sufferer of insomnia, has been unable to get a full night's sleep for the past 3 months with opening a new business. He wore the sleep hat for the first time last night, and for the first time in 3 months, he actually slept all night and when he woke up early in the morning the hat successfully soothed him back to sleep. Simply amazing!More > < Less




I bought this for my husband who has had sleep problems due to medications and to sleep apnea, He is finally able to achieve deep REM sleep for first time in years! The only drawback is that he finds it a little too warm which may be a problem when the weather gets warmer.More > < Less


Finally! A good night's sleep!


I purchased this for a friend of mine who has suffered from chronic insomnia for years. Because of the number of medications he is already taking, he wasn't interested in sleep medication. He's been using this for almost a week and he reported that he slept an entire eight hours the other night. He is very pleased with the way it is working for him and has nothing but good things to say about it. In the past, he's been lucky to get uninterrupted sleep for more than two hours at a time so this is a big deal for him!More > < Less


Best Sleep Ever


I have essential tremors and sleep is always been hard for me. I am usually tired and yawning throughout the day. I have always thought I have a great night sleep. It was not until I started to use the Sleep Shepherd that I am no longer tired all the time. I have also notice my essential tremors are less noticeable. Thank you for the Best Sleep Ever.More > < Less


Skeptic Converted


I ended up buying two of these after the first one worked so well for my husband who has not had a good nights sleep in 20 years- Nothing before has worked and we have been to a LOT of sleep "specialists". This did; medication free. I ended up buying one for my college son who has trouble shutting off his brain at night. Worked like a charm- he told me sleeps until the battery wears out. I'm sold. I'm telling everyone.More > < Less

About Sleep Shepherd

Sound Slumber

The Sleep Shepherd is a wearable, all natural sleeping aid. It’s a cap that uses a faint audio signal to lull you to sleep, and monitors your brain activity to help keep you there.

The audio signals create a reaction that the Founder calls the “virtual hammock effect.” The hat emits precise tones into your ears that mimic a sound swaying back and forth. As your brain deciphers the difference in frequency coming from either ear, this creates the effect of a slow rhythm. Your brain starts to follow that and slows down, and the Sleep Shepherd automatically adjusts the individual tones using a biofeedback loop.

Throughout the night, if you wake up or your brain starts ramping up again, the Sleep Shepherd responds. It reintroduces the tone to slow down your mind and keep you snoozing.

Sleep is a subject that kept Founder Dr. Michael Larson, Ph. D from MIT, awake from time to time. His daughter suffers from narcolepsy, and her prescription drugs often kept her awake for hours. He wanted a drug-free way to help her fall asleep.

The Sleep Shepherd is made with lightweight, breathable fabric that’s audio-conductive. That means no earphones or buds to plug into your ears, and you won’t get too hot wearing it. Admittedly, it’s not something you’d wear in public, but hey, you look kind of silly when you are sound asleep, too. Which you will be.
