    I’ve used sound to deep work and sleep for years, but this is just a whole new level. WORK (Focus mode) This has instantly boosted my focus depth and duration while working. It has replaced the Thunderspace app and my ‘Chill’ playlist I used previously. WALKING (On the go) I use it while walking, and I meditate and pray while I walk. I do know how they do it, but the sound is so unique, interesting, rhythmic and beautiful. It really helps me get in the meditative zone very quickly. It has dramatically improved the quality of my meditation through walking. SLEEP I’ve used the Pillow app for a few years, as well as the Smart Alarm feature on my Withings/Nokia wearable tracker - mainly to wake up at a good time in my sleep cycle. While this app doesn’t have that feature, I have begun to use the Sleep feature in place of the sounds of the Pillow app just before bed. Works great, and I like the sounds much better. RELAX While I do t use this one very often, it seems to work when I do. I’ll chill out while reading or contemplating, or while making a fire at home. For me, the killer features are the fact that this is all in one beautiful app that’s a joy to use, and secondarily, that the quality of the sound and features are second to none. This has become one of my top 5 third-party apps, probably forever. Nice work team!

    Great App for experiencing offline ai-powered music for various occasions. Music is rich and dynamic, tailored to one's preferences. Listening never gets boring due to (bi-)monthly theme changes. The UI-design is fabulous! Daily listening makes you feel more calm, focused, refreshed and less stressed. You will already feel a difference in the first hour of listening. After a few days of regular usage, the effects start to last longer and are more intense. Excellent experience so far, 10/10!!

    For me, 7 days was not long enough to be sure about this app. But I’m not disappointed because I suspected this would be the case. So I waited for the 1 yr subscription to start and then canceled it so that I’d have a year to work with it. It takes a while to fully learn how to work this app into your life but I’m getting there. It’s not a magic wand, you have to do your part as well... at least in my case it takes practice and experimentation. For example finding the most effective volume for various soundscapes was a big help for me. I’m pretty sure I’ll restart the subscription at the end of my year. Just don’t want to forget to stop it just in case. One recommendation to the development team. The fade in/out in the latest upgrade is good. Fade out should also be added to the timer setting when a sound alarm is not set. This way when you fall asleep the abrupt volume drop doesn’t wake you up.

    With everything going on in the world today, I’m too distracted to listen to podcasts and have always been unable to focus if music is on because I’m too enraptured in the music composition itself. Needless to say, I certainly can’t tune into the news and television just sounds like junk. Endel is a Godsend. The sounds and rhythms chosen for each mood state are impeccable. They genuinely give whatever state of mind I’m trying to achieve an instant boost. I’m confident that the Endel team must be using science and algorithms to understand how to give the brain exactly what you’re looking for. This is one of those applications that makes you realize you’re living in an incredibly innovative world - take advantage of it!

    Why can't I just tap on a type of music and that's it. Timer? Smh. Just go a normal useful design. Do a usable car, not a future model car for presentation.

    After the update is becoming bad I uninstalled the app because they take money many times even after I contact them I signed up for the free trial I cancelled the free trial you took the money for a year off my card, I sent the email to you and you reply that I have to contact Google, why should I have to contact Google you take the money without permission from me so you have to give the refund I want my money back.

    The sounds are NOT personalized. I would rate 5 if it didn’t falsely advertise. The sounds are really nice, soothing, and I think they might work. But they are not customizable or personalized. There are four, period. When you first sign on, the first screen gives you the illusion of personalization with some tags you can choose for what you’re doing, but there is no way to bring it back up and edit the tags. Other people Im the room chose the opposite settings and we all have the same four sounds, and no one can go back to the screen we saw when it first opened. I also noticed someone else call3d this out and was given a longwinded answer that doesn’t address the lie and distracts from feedback, misleading the reader to think the review is referring to something else. Just sell it for what it is. It is four lovely sounds, with a gorgeous interface. 5 stars. But if you’re selling me personalized sounds that is just a gross lie. And if I’m wrong, there’s something very wrong with the app. Your promise is not accessible, and the first screen seems to be just for show. You know, a mock-up.

  • Cool idea... doesn’t deliver Jun 21, 2019

    By Steven St. Blaize
    On paper this app is a rapturously good idea I was ready to pay for. After my week trial I was still intrigued so I paid for an additional month. This doesn’t feel like a curated experience worthy of a subscription, it feels like a 4 song album. Beyond that, the insights are utterly meaningless and provide no additional value to my experience. I’ll definitely be looking for a place to download these four tracks so I can put them on repeat myself, but to charge a subscription promising a curated personal service for this just seems... misleading. I wanted to love this app, maybe I’ll check back in a year or two :/

  • Great sounds, not so great pricing Aug 14, 2020

    By LBS0503
    This app is actually really great, which is why it’s so frustrating that it’s so expensive. For me, the only time I use it is for sleep and when I’m getting ready, so I can’t justify spending the money either each month or for the lifetime unfortunately. Such a bummer because I would otherwise highly recommend this app, I’ve honestly slept through the night sooo much better since I’ve been using this app the past 4 nights. And there’s something about the Focus sounds that help keep me from getting distracted while getting ready for work. I will be sad to see it go! If the cost doesn’t make you flinch, then definitely get this app, you won’t regret it!

  • Eerie Vibes May 22, 2019

    By buenasterism
    I am using an Apple Watch and have health data stored to the extent that I believe there should be an adequately suited soundscape right away. I need to sleep and I saw this ad and thought it would help. However the music made me feel more awake and has eerie vibes. The way the sound waves are visualized when I press the screen in sleep mode seems too active for the sleeping state and the sound produced does not feel intuitive but more randomly generated. Like I could not play the screen like a hand pan if I wanted to, the notes would just change and I’d be lost. Read some other reviews. Honestly feels like a soundscape to me but I’m just playing devils advocate and a healthy skeptic. Trying something different now, thank you for the opportunity but I felt mislead and shall take my journey for sleep elsewhere. Maybe pull a safe last resort which I do not want to have to do... to help me fall asleep 😴 Best of luck, you seem like a cool, genuine dude. ✌️

  • One flaw... May 22, 2019

    By JeS1980
    I really love this app...to help me concentrate on work, to just chill out and most of all to sleep. For me, this is where the flaw presents itself. I love using the timer to fall asleep to, however; when the timer is done instead of just fading off leaving me in peace and quiet it makes this weird jarring/beeping/clatter noise that ALWAYS wakes me up after I've fallen asleep. Please get rid of that. I don't need to be alerted that the sounds I am using to fall asleep are now over. I already have a lot of trouble sleeping - that's why I use this app. Being woken up abruptly after failing gently asleep is annoying and frustrating. Rating would be 5 stars if it weren't weird ending.

  • Good idea, but execution is unsatisfying Sep 18, 2020

    By Gori20
    I really like the idea, and so far, the tunes are good. Where it misses for me is in the seem to be some dependency to the local time (huge drawback) and the scenarios, which are hard to get on the screen and click on. Also the timer setup is a very poor UX experience. Regarding the dependency on local time - i find it fundamentally flawed that an app that’s supposed to help an individual with their rhythm, is depending on an external, one-size-fits-all, input as time. Not everyone works 9-5. These would struggle most with internal-rhythm and seek solutions such as apps like this. Unfortunately, it doesn’t deliver.

  • Love this app May 11, 2019

    By Studiogestalt
    This is a beautifully designed app and has one of my favorite sleep modes. I found the sleep sounds very easy to fall asleep to. My biggest issue so far and what keeps me from giving it a 5 star rating is when using Sleep mode I usually set a timer as I don't need sounds going all night. I usually just want an hour or two to fall asleep and perhaps mask out external noise to get to that state. Also if my phone is unplugged it would drain the battery to keep it going all night. But when the timer expires a jarring chime and alternative sound track kicks in. This wakes me up every single time! It is supposed to be a timer — not an alarm right? So why would you have a chime go off and alter the sound waves in such an abrupt fashion. Now I am awake again. Rather than this alarm the sounds should just simply stop or even fade out. Just a little feedback.

  • Neat Idea, but Unsatisfied Jul 27, 2020

    By samelnicomposer
    I love the idea of this app. It’s lovely having these ultra-personalized soundscapes based on weather, activity, etc. however, it falls short. The strictly regular cyclical energy graph doesn’t make sense, especially when I feel like I’m tired or losing energy, and it says I’m at a peak. Also, the timer modes for short activities don’t flow back into the four main styles. They just stop all sound abruptly. It’s so off-putting. Lastly, I wish it worked with Google Cast devices.

  • No options Feb 1, 2019

    By HaleyTheAuthor
    I paid for a year of this because there’s a discount if you buy before the 7 free days. I didn’t realize that there are literally no options. You choose from 5 types of sounds, relax/focus/on the go/sleep/season. Thats it. They are good for sure, but the sleep and season one stopped working after 3 weeks, so now it’s onto relax... for the rest of the year? I have bad PTSD, sleeping is hell to begin with, finances are tight. Definitely wouldn’t have purchased had I known it was really well marketed up front with a super basic back end. AND if you want to use Endel on ITunes, you need the unlimited iTunes for 9.99 per month... it doesn’t come with the endel subscription. Get a free app.

  • I have no idea why this is subscription based Feb 23, 2020

    By rwmorris35
    Pros: the design is elegant. Interface is nice. Sounds are nice. I mean, it’s a well made app, and they’ve put a lot of care into it. You can tell. Cons: this is little more than a sound machine with four sounds. Sleep, relax, “go”, and focus. That’s it. There’s nothing else to this thing. You could download these same sounds in Music. Having them all in one app is convenient, but the amount of the recurring charge - and the fact there’s a recurring charge at all - is absolutely outrageous. I MIGHT pay a one time charge of $20, but even that is high for what you’re getting. Quick delete for me before they ding my card.

  • Data Concerns Nov 21, 2018

    By _MrManager_
    The app is fine for what it says it does: it plays pleasant sounds in the background. However, it asks for access to health data, location, and motion tracking. If you do give it access, it does not allow you to revoke that access. They have a "delete my data" button, which shows a message that "All your data has been deleted from this device" when really what I want is for all my data to be deleted from EVERY device. Trying to export my data caused the app to crash.

  • Was not offered the Lifetime subscription Aug 5, 2019

    By Poesidon
    I was only offered the annual subscription. I am frustrated by the lack of transparency that it is a subscription app (1st week free only). Reading through the description it can be found that there is a layered subscription which include a lifetime option. The app was interesting enough app that I was willing to pay a one time premium for the lifetime subscription. So I’ve signed up. They then offer a twenty four hour 50% discount for new users. There was no way to get to the lifetime membership option (not at all). - don’t lie to me, don’t make false offers, don’t not make the product fully available. It looks like a well made app. Good job to the builders. Someone is sales has convinced you that dishonest practices are acceptable. I am sad for you.

    Not really a fan of having the automatic subscription button (which pops up upon initial setup) be titled "Continue", as well as the app asking for permissions such as health, location, and more. I'm sure some of these are used for some purpose, but combined with using a free trial -> subscription model that attempts to trick people into paying subscription fees is enough to make me steer clear of this app. I'm sure the dev team is working hard, but I can't support that.
