Would you like to know how the future of sleeping looks like? Then read this review of the Oittm Smart Headrest, which is an amazing pillow mat that can play music and monitor the quality of your sleep.
Design and Build
No, the Oittm Smart Headrest doesn’t even remotely resemble headphones of any kind, and it also doesn’t look like any speakers we’ve ever seen. Yet, this innovative product will be right up the alley of most gearheads and audio aficionados.
The Oittm Smart Headrest is intended to go inside your pillowcase and on top of your pillow. It hides a pair of stereo speakers, which can play your favorite music or binaural beats that lower your brain rate to help you relax and fall asleep. Embedded inside the Oittm Smart Headrest is also an advanced sleep monitoring sensor that collects a host of information about your sleep patterns and sends it to the intuitive SweeSleep app, which displays detailed sleep analytics and charts to help you optimize your sleep habits.
The Oittm Smart Headrest can show you how much deep sleep you achieve every night or display how many times you turn on average from the time you fall asleep until the time you wake up. It can also gently wake you up through real-time monitoring of your sleep in the light-sleep phase, which is when your body is naturally ready to wake up. By waking up in the light-sleep phase, you might even be able to ditch your morning coffee and still be as productive as you are when you have caffeine flowing through your veins.
The Oittm Smart Headrest is a high-tech sleep aid that also happens to sound surprisingly good. Admittedly, we were expecting a mediocre sound quality at best when we first got our hands on this product. To our surprise, the Oittm Smart Headrest doesn’t sound like an old radio, even though it definitely doesn’t come close to the sound quality of proper headphones.
The Oittm Smart Headrest shines the most when you connect it to a smartphone running the SweetSleep app, which features many relaxing tunes and binaural beats. Thanks to the app, you don’t have to spend hours and hours searching for appropriate music—you can just pick and choose from a large library of professionally curated content, close your eyes, and start counting the sheep.
