This is by far my favorite purchase of the year and I already got my brother to buy one as well.I am meditating way more often and because of the gamification I find myself wanting to get better and better
I use the Muse 1 for meditation and neurofeedback training almost every day. However, I was having problems with the form factor and being able to lay back in my recliner and truly enjoy the meditation and neurofeedback training experience.With the Muse 2 having considerably smaller form factor, which provides a way more comfortable fit than Muse 1, and a better position of the electrode port solves my problem. I am now able to more easily roll up a towel and put it behind my neck and I can recline back and it's awesome... what a great mediation and neurofeedback training experience.
I was really on the fence about this, having used Muse 1 for some time, and it still works fine and I really enjoy using it. Sure Muse 2 looks a lot sleeker, and is a little smaller, but I wasn't sure it offered any more value. Eventually, I took the plunge and ordered it, and am so glad I did. The moment you connect it to your Muse app, you instantly unlock 3 new types of meditations and they really do take things to a whole new level. The breath meditation is calming but the heartbeat meditation which syncs with your heart-rate is.. well.. euphoric. I could do this all day. I've had no issues with connection, and It's a really well designed piece of kit. Glad I upgraded.
The Muse 2 has been a great addition to my beginner meditation practice. It is lightweight, comfortable, and easy to set up and use. I had a few sensor connectivity issues the first time I used the band, but I realized it was because I wasn't wearing the device correctly. After a few tries, I now have the positioning down and haven't had any other issues. I like that the app sets attainable goals, enjoy seeing the charts after each session, and look forward to seeing my progress over time.
I bought this mid-Feb 2019 as an upgrade to Muse 1, which I used from mid-2018. Muse 2 updated firmware on first use and has dropped Bluetooth only twice in almost 20 uses. Both times my iPhone was on the floor in front of me rather than on a low table near my right ear. I don't know if the BT Transceiver is on the left or right side - just an idea that positioning might help.I wipe my forehead and ears with a damp cloth before use and it connects in seconds. I see literature that signal issues are frequent and wonder is some diluted electrode gel wiped on forehand and ears might help?
