Have you ever been in the mood for a nice little nap, but have sadly been found yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time?

On a train with the sun shining bright through the window and an annoying neighbor talking on their phone.

Simply fold up the sleep mask and keep on enjoying Soulitude's premium sound-reduction capabilities.
Arrive well rested.
"Why choose Soulitude over existing solutions?" Well no one has actually asked us that yet. But just in case someone does in the future, we've conducted a significant amount of research and discovered that the answer is quite obvious...
Because it's better.
Will Soulitude increase your well-being?
This chapter could have been very, very long. Perhaps we could have hired some type of doctor or researcher talking about the many benefits of a power nap specifically or the benefits of relaxation in general. Perhaps we should have quoted recent research showing that light pollution may be disrupting how your body functions or how sound impacts your sleep cycle. We could have gone through numerous arguments why using the Soulitude could help you to cure headaches, increase your energy levels and lower your stress levels.
We choose to instead keep it short. If activities such as a comfortable nap or enjoying a sweet moment of relaxation is something that you like to do then:
YES, Soulitude will indeed increase your well-being*
*=Research shows that doing things that you like increases your well-being.
We created the Soulitude with you in mind. We chose materials with the highest comfort and durability and designed it to be as slim and portable as possible, without sacrificing either comfort, style or function.
Block out disturbing light? Annoying sounds?...Or both?
Soulitude is carefully designed to be suitable for any situation at any time, anywhere. Time for a nap? Put on your Soulitude and shut out both annoying sounds and disturbing light. Watching a movie on the plane? Fold up the sleep mask and enjoy Soulitude's sound-reduction capabilities. A full night beauty sleep in a quiet place? Simply detach the earmuffs and enjoy 100% blackout. On-the-go? Fold your lightweight Soulitude and put it in its stylish carrying bag.
The Sleep mask
Light can be a pretty cool thing. But when you intend to rest your eyes, it tends to be really annoying. What’s even more annoying is buying a sleep mask in order to block out that annoying light only to find out that the sleep mask does not in fact block out all of the light. Unfortunately, most of the sleep masks on the market today don’t.
After extensive research and testing we’re confident to say that we’ve managed to develop a sleep mask that will completely accomplish its job - 100% blackout - no light leakage. Just as sleep masks once were intended to be - but ours is amazingly comfortable thanks to its premium Memory foam and soft, breathable cotton. Because of the innovative Memory foam walls, there’s no pressure on your eyelids while wearing your Soulitude. This not only ensures your comfort, but allows your eyes the freedom to move ensuring that REM sleep cycle can occur.
The actual functionality of ordinary hearing protection earmuffs is great. While they’re the ultimate choice for activities such as working at a construction site, going hunting or mowing the lawn, they’re not as great when it’s time for a nap or a relaxing moment.
Based on the same sound reduction technology as you’ll find in industrial grade hearing protection- we’ve re-designed and improved the earmuff. Super comfortable, less bulky and way more stylish. Without taking away its main functionality: reducing disturbing noises.
You can read more about NRR here. Most industrial grade earmuffs are in the NRR range 20-30dB. Please note that Soulitude's 26dB is based on a prototype estimation. What's not an estimation is that using your Soulitude when home, on a plane, on a train or in a car will be absolutely amazing.

Risks and challenges
Our goal is to deliver your Soulitude to you as soon as possible. The estimated delivery time (march 2018) is our best guess based on where we're at for the moment. Our team have been developing numerous products for clients in the past. Even though our team have a lot of experience in the field we've also learned that every project is different.
So even though we're as prepared as we can be at this stage (we have a very well working prototype, great relationships with overseas manufacturers that are eager to help us finalizing the design and take it to market and a solid global fulfilment solution) obstacles on the way leading to a shipping later than our estimation is a possibility.
If we experience anything that does slow us down in the process- be sure that you, our amazing supporters, will be the first to know!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
