Discussion

MUJI to Sleep for Android FreeMUJI to Sleep offers the simplicity and convenience of listening to different nature recorded sounds at any given place or time. It is best suited for people who have trouble sleeping. Needless to say, this app helps promote better sleep. You can use it right before bedtime as well as during the day, when you want to take a power nap. When using this app, it is highly recommended for you to listen to the sounds while wearing your headphones. You should also be sitting or lying down in a comfortable position.

In addition, the MUJI to Sleep app uses binaural beats to make its sounds more effective for inducing sleep. With this app, you can choose from its six available high quality stereophonic “nature recorded” sounds which includes sounds from the forest, fire, stream, beach, birds and waterfalls. The app also claims that all of these sounds were recorded across various regions of Japan.

To listen to each sound, simply swipe the app’s screen from left to right (or vice versa). The screen for each sound will be displayed.  You can easily recognize which screen is meant for a particular sound because of the given symbols. While you’re viewing the screen, you can listen to the sound that’s associated to it.

Speaking of which, MUJI to Sleep flaunts a minimalistic interface so there’s less text and visual clutter. The background for each screen is also very soothing to the eye. If you want, you can also configure the timer for each nature recorded sound. So it’s up to you if you want to continue listening to its sleep sounds for a duration of 30 minutes, 60 minutes or 90 minutes (1 ½ hour). After that, the app will automatically stop playing the sound. There’s no need for you to press “stop”.

All in all, I can say that MUJI to Sleep isn’t only good for promoting better sleep. It’s also good for people who like to listen to calm sounds to help them relax. Just don’t forget to abide with the app’s safety precautions as it uses special binaural beats sounds that could possibly harm people with heart problems as well as those who have seizure disorders.

While I don’t really have any complaints or serious issues regarding this app, it would be really nice if it gets to offer more calm and relaxing sleep sounds such the sounds of rain, wind, crickets and thunderstorms.

    Interesting. . . but I’d never be able to sleep in my bed with earphones on. Fortunately, I have three Sharper Image ‘Soundsoother’ units bought in 2000 and 2001, bed-side stereo CD players with a choice of a dozen or so digital endless loop sleep-tracks which can either be set to a pre-determined time or simply left on all night (my preference.) I was so impressed with the first one, I bought the two others on eBay the following year. All this time later, and Sharper Image has long gone (it went bust in 2008) but my 14-year-old Sound Soother is still working just fine, all night, every night. The other two units are in guest bedrooms. Just thinking about that ol’ steam engine chuffing along, or the ocean waves lapping on the beach. . . and I’m asleep.
