Sleep is more important to your overall health and productivity than diet and exercise. Yet with the buzzing phones and many gizmos in modern living, our sleep health is worse than ever. Science is beginning to reveal that not only the quantity, but also the quality of sleep can improve daily living.

The Sonic Sleep app is your personalized sleep assistant created by scientists to improve your sleep quality and give you deeper, more regenerative sleep.

Simply place your phone by your bed. The Sonic Sleep app uses your microphone to sense sounds while you sleep. It then plays soothing audio at just the right volume to improve your sleep all night. Use surround sound or Bluetooth speakers for a more immersive sound sleep experience.

Here are several innovative features to help you sleep well.

Acoustic Cushion
- Plays soothing sound stimulation, like pink noise and nature sounds, that adaptively adjust based on the noise detected in your room.
- Blocks out disrupting noises (i.e. snoring or traffic) that interfere with your sleep quality.

Gradual Wake Smart Alarm Clock
- The alarm clock slowly wakes you up in your lightest sleep cycle by starting very quiet and gradually increasing in volume.
- Snooze your alarm with the simple shake of your phone and get back to sleep faster.
- Use the vibration wake setting to wake up without disturbing your sleep partner.

Meditation and Relaxation
- Proven techniques to stop your mind from racing.
- When you start the alarm, select wind down to access meditations and relaxing sounds, such as progressive muscle relaxation and binaural beats.
- Have a baby that can’t sleep? Try our soothing lullaby to entrain a relaxing bedtime ritual.

Sleep Scheduler
- Input your work and sleep schedule to find your best times to sleep.

Excellent, does work


I’ve been using this application for about 10 days. I decided to subscribe to the additional features, after the trial period. Worth every penny! There is no question that I fall sleep far faster when using this application. I also feel that I am getting a deeper and more restful sleep at night. My wife wears a CPAP, And the noise from it was affecting my sleep. The white noise this application provides completely eliminates this CPAC noise and I am sleeping far better. I also find that it is ideal for an afternoon power nap. I’m not absolutely certain about all of the functionality, for example why the microphone is constantly on. But it works! This application is very clever; for example it automatically mutes any notifications or sounds at night if I were to get an email etc. Therefore I don’t need to use the do-not-disturb feature on my iPhone anymore. The gradual alarm feature which I don’t use that often works amazingly well. I don’t use it often because I don’t have to wake up at a specific time. Bottom line is this application is well worth but the initial fee and the yearly subscription.

Huge impact to my sleep!

RE Professor

Love this app and use it even when I cat nap. It’s practical, easy to use and genuinely works -- usually gives me deep and restful sleep 5 out of 6 nights. I think a big part is that the white noise that it emits is customized to the noise level in the room and helps me to turn my mind off. Hearing the sound over time activates a kind of Pavlovian response. When I hear it, I know it’s time to sleep.

As the sound modulates during sleep, I definitely feel like it gets me to a restful, deeper state. Plus, I dream better with the app – the sounds add lucidity to my dreams. I also love the ability to choose my gradual alarm. I selected birds and they sound like the real thing. A wonderful, gentle way to wake up.

Some suggestions -- I hope they consider adding a summary function when I wake up that tells me how long I was asleep. I always want to know this; in future, I would love to be able to add this to a sleep log so I can track over it over time

Chill out?!!


I paid for this app because I wanted the features advertised – those allowing a deeper sleep with sound stimulation that matched brain-wave frequencies. Your description misleads. A purchaser might think $.99 is the premium version. It is, rather, a trial version. Most trial versions are free. I later read the review where someone complained about paying money and getting nothing in return. In their response to what I consider a justified complaint, the developer said “chill out… It’s only $.99.” I thought this response was smugly rude. If $.99 is so inconsequential, developer, don’t charge for a minimally functional trial version and give the money back.
Whether it’s $.99 or $99… Taking somebody’s money after misleading them…whether you think the word “premium” is sufficient warning or not, then discounting their complaints...is a “premium” warning not to buy an app from you in the future. When I will read the “chill out” response, it was warning enough for me not to subscribe to your monthly service. Too bad… I would otherwise probably have signed up. :-(

It also includes pink noise and natural sounds that adaptively adjust based on the noise detected in your bedroom. I hope this information helps :)
