Manifesto

We are Livlab,
a team of insomniacs, designers and entrepreneurs, whose mission is to improve your sleep.

To assist us on this journey we sur-rounded ourselves with the best experts (hypnotherapists, sleep doctors, morphologists and sound designers) with the aim of creating a quality audio experience offering both variety and immersive content to help you fall asleep.
As current audio devices available on the market are not well suited to sleeping (large headphones, and un-comfortable earbuds), we decided to create HoomBand, the most comfort-able textile headphone on the market.
HoomBand is more than just a pair of headphones its your new nightly ritual.

Questions

Can I wear HoomBand all night?
Yes, the headband was designed specifically to be worn all night long (comfortable, breathable, etc). You can therefore sleep in whatever position you like.

How should I set the volume?
We do not recommend using the highest volume setting, in order to avoid damaging your hearing. The perfect volume is loud enough to hear the audio content correctly, without it being so loud as to wake you up once you are asleep.

I’m wearing HoomBand but i can still hear things around me, is this normal?
Yes, the earphones are not in-ear and do not fully block your ears like other headphones, this ensures a prolonged comfort during the night. It also means that your ears are not blocked in the case of an emergency or a fire alarm.

Where should I focus my attention?
Part of your attention will automatically be focused on the sounds and hypnotic inductions. It is best to adopt a passive attitude and to let yourself go. This exercise is easy to do and requires almost no mental effort.

Should I try and stop thinking?
No, trying to stop your thoughts is counter-productive. Furthermore, your thoughts are not the reason why you can’t fall asleep, your reaction to them is. Because they are bothering you, you want to stop them. Since this at-tempt is doomed to fail, it will only leave you feeling more frustrated…and less likely to fall asleep ! With the help of our stories available on the HoomBand app, you will be lest caught up in your thoughts that will no longer hold you back from sleeping.

Not sure if fully charged?
While charging, if the green light is blinking, the module is not fully charged. If there is NO light on at all while charging, the Bluetooth® module is fully charged.

Product care

Washing
  1. Before washing, remove the foam, the earphones and the Bluetooth® block from inside the headband.
