Look at the screen — now you can see the current circadian phase and condition that influences the most in your chosen soundscape.
We added the explanation of How Endel actually works. So that you might feel the beauty of Endel not only by ear, but by wrapping your mind around it also.
Most likely you haven't yet experienced the whole variety of new sounds, but we improved them again — by implementing MIDI playback and generation system. Our algorithm now generates even more fluid variations of sound layers and fits them together nothing but seamlessly.
! Sorry to everyone who's faced the no-sound bug upon the first launch. The app restart could help, we hope some of you have tried that. Anyway, we've just fixed the issue at the system level so that it won't bother anybody again. Please update the app and drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if that happened during your first Endel experience. We have an apology gift for you.
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.
My new favorite app
Mere minutes after beginning the seven day trial, I paid for the lifetime option—which was deeply discounted at the time. I use Endel daily; it has supplanted several other relaxation and ambient sounds apps.
Although I was hesitant to allow location and motion tracking, it does enhance the experience (somewhat limited, I suppose, by the fact that I don’t wear a fitness tracker or heart rate monitor).
I’m happy to see the problem with disconnecting headphones and Bluetooth speakers is fixed. It was annoying to have to switch modes or quit and relaunch to get sound back.
For those who tend to keep screens dimmer, unselected mode icons can be difficult to see. Otherwise I love the interface. I particularly like the timer. I don’t know why all soundscape apps don’t have one.
Although I like the new winter mode, periodically some the loop transitions are a bit abrupt. (Strings maybe? The sounds have changed and it’s not happening as I write this.) I think it would be nice if it becomes a seasons mode that changes with the calendar.
