Simply download the five included music programs to your device (or purchase the optional pre-loaded MP3 player), connect the player to a cord within the zippered pocket, place the Dreampad Mini in your own pillowcase, and you’ll soon be snoozing. More than 80 percent of participants in a recent study showed a significant relaxation response within 15 minutes, but there’s a 30-day, money-back guarantee. $179.
