'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Noisy neighbors, stress from work or your personal life, and an inability to quiet your thoughts at night can all contribute to a lack of sleep, thereby impacting your well-being and productivity during the day. 

If you're looking for a solution, consider the Muse 2 meditation and sleep headband, a device designed to help you fight stress. The Muse 2, bundled with a subscription, is currently available with a 26% discount off the typical RRP -- reducing the price from $345 to $260.

The Muse 2 premium subscription bundle includes the Muse 2 multi-sensor headband and a year's worth of the company's subscription service. 

The 2nd-gen headband monitors your brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and more to give personalized feedback on reducing stress levels and improving focus throughout the day. In addition, the headband includes a smart fade feature to help wearers sleep. 

The subscription service provides access to over 500 meditations.
