Life is hectic. That’s why at Somnox, we’re always looking for ways to make your world a little more tranquil. And now you can soothe yourself to sleep with the sound of your favorite music, thanks to our newest feature: Audio Streaming for Somnox 2. Now available for iPhone and iPad users.

Our users love Somnox for relaxation and sleep. That’s what Somnox is all about, after all. But we asked ourselves: how can we improve your Somnox experience even more? Following a recent user survey of hundreds of Somnox users, the answer was clear: with more customization, of course!


Design your own experience

Evidence shows that music combined with breathing has a calming effect. And while the Somnox app comes with a variety of soothing sounds to enjoy, we know that more customization = better. So now you can personalize your moment of relaxation. Play your favorite music, sounds, meditations, podcasts, or audiobooks wirelessly on your Somnox 2 from your iPhone or iPad.

Android users, don’t despair! We’re working on this for you next.

What can I play on my Somnox 2?
