Ratings and Reviews
Changing my life
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.
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.
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!

Thank you SO much for this thorough review and appreciating our work! This kind of feedback means the world to us and we're not taking those 5* ratings for granted. Stay tuned as more content (and features) is coming!
This is just an album.
Ok, I've had the free trial for a week now, and I feel I can safely say that this app isn't some algorithmic genius, it's simply a pleasing ambient album. For example, there are two distinct tracks on the sleep channel, and that's it, no matter if sometimes a somewhat ancillary ticking clock is playing instead of a white noise filter sweep mimicking the ocean.
There's no shame at all in making a good ambient album. They've done that. But the description of the app is truly misleading and tries to represent this app as something more. And on top of that, it charges an ongoing subscription fee that is not equivalent to the market price of an album, which, again, is what this is. Sorry, but I'm not gonna subscribe and have to renew $25 every year for the latest Carly Rae Jepsen album either. The lack of promise of future updates/material, on top of it all, makes this whole enterprise seem very dishonest. Pretty good album, though.
For something truly ambitious and algorithmic, see Brian Eno's Scape app for iPad. Relatively expensive for an iPad app, but a one-time purchase and filled with at least 10x the material of this app.

Ambient is too much of a music for Endel, as the app is not about redesigning songs. Endel is a sound tool for people to tailor sonic environment to their needs. Take Sleep as an example. Speaking of which, for a comfort sleep nothing is better than mostly static soundscape, science agrees. That’s the reason why we are trying to keep Sleep mode sounds balanced, as thoughts of those going to bed with Endel.
However, we do agree with you that it could still sound brighter with the same sleepy effect. That's why we're now testing a new generating algorithm, aimed to enliven Endel soundscapes with an abundance of chords, sequences, melodies. Here's another privilege of a 1-year subscription, as you'll have a chance to take this exciting adventure with us and be one of the first Endel users to check (and, hopefully, review) this major update.
Thank you for the feedback. By the way we're in love with Brian Eno too, so having Scape app is always a good idea. More blank than frank.
Cool idea... doesn’t deliver
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 :/

Hi, Steven, thank you for this very useful feedback. Actions are louder than words, so please do check back, but sooner than a couple of years.
We're introducing a new sound system this week so that the modes will get a new feeling, variety, intensity.
Also, we set to explain how Endel works in detail, as it is actually a technology, much more complicated than just 4 lopped songs. This will appear on our Instagram @endelsound soon, later in the product itself.
Finally, the insights. They will be revisited before the end of summer. If you could drop us a line at email@example.com with your thoughts about them, we'd appreciate it highly. Endel Team 🙏
