In a nutshell:
Created by a wellness-minded doctor, Erin Stair, MD, MPH, ( who you can follow on Instagram here), the ZENBand is a safe and comfortable way to listen to your tunes, hypnosis scripts and meditation scripts without the pain of traditional headphones and earbuds. Not only does the ZENBand feel like cushions for your ears, but it is the only headband & pillow speakers combination made wide enough to comfortably serve as an eye-mask when you want to turn off the rest of the world, focus on your practice and Zen Out. The width of the band also allows you to comfortably keep your hair out of your face.
The cord doesn’t tangle and is made of aluminum-foil wire.

ZENBands are not wireless or Bluetooth. Wireless devices are EMF-radiation (RFR) emitting devices, linked in recent scientific studies to health effects such as gliomas ( brain tumors), schwannomas ( ear & heart tumors), infertility issues, sensitivity issues, neurological issues, and behavioral issues such as ADHD when exposed in utero. For more information, please visit the Physicians for Safe Technology website on why you should consider minimizing your wireless exposure.
“I used the ZENBand during my pregnancy. I LOVE that it’s an eye-mask too, and unlike wireless devices, it’s safe, and when you listen, it really does feel like pillows for your ears.” – Dr. Cally Ward.
How fast will I get my ZENBand?
If you are in the US, it takes on average 2-3 days to arrive. International orders can take up to 14 days.

What “exactly” are ZENBands?
ZENBands are comfortable headbands made with super soft material that contain removable pillow speakers designed to be cushions for your ears. The band is designed to be wide, so you can keep your hair out of your face & pull it over your eyes like an eye-mask to keep people and outside light from disturbing you. This is important if you want to relax, meditate and zen out. Research shows that blocking out surrounding stimuli and light significantly enhances your relaxation response. )
Unlike regular headphones, the ZENBand has cushion-like speakers that put no pressure on your head or ears. They are superb for meditating, traveling, hypnosis, hypnobirthing or resting on your side. They are great for folks with sensitivity issues. You can also run & workout in them, though you might get too hot in warmer weather. The aluminum-foil wire cord is custom-made to not tangle, while remaining sturdy. The speakers also do not go inside your ears, thereby reducing the risk of bacteria & viruses being transmitted via your ear canals.
Do the speakers move? How do I plug them in?
The speakers are removable, so you can position them over your ears or above your ears, depending on how you like to listen. You can adjust them with any hair style & body position. When you first start listening, you might have to gently adjust the speakers to where you want them. A tip: When you remove the ZENBand, simply hold the speakers in place, so they are near the spot you want them to be for the next time you listen. It’s easy, we promise. 🙂
The ZENBands plug into the standard 3.5 mm jack. If you don’t have one, that’s okay. They easily work with all Lightening to 3.5 mm adapters that come with your phone or can be easily ordered. These adapters are very popular and also allow you to listen and charge your phone at the same time. Wireless devices so close to your body and head are not safe, especially if you listen to music for a long time.
Huh? Why No Bluetooth, it’s 2020?!? Because of significant growing health concerns:
I get asked this a lot, because of the “wireless” craze. As a doctor with a public health background, I don’t feel comfortable making a wireless version, nor would I ever use one. There’s currently a class-action lawsuit against popular tech companies for misconstruing the amount of radiation exposure from their wireless tech and cell phones. It’s important to remember that tech companies are not required to prove that a device is safe for your health, so we have to rely on independent studies and randomized controlled trials in animals. The results of those trials, along with human epidemiological data, show that EMF exposure has the potential to cause harm to one’s health when so close to one’s body. Bluetooth is an EMF ( Electromagnetic), non-ionizing radiation emitting device that sits inside your ear, directly near your brain. We don’t make Bluetooth because of growing health concerns linked to EMF exposure, such as brain, ear and heart tumors ( gliomas and schwannomas), infertility issues, cognitive dysfunction, ADHD symptoms in kids and neurological issues, especially in young people or if exposed in utero. It does not happen overnight, as with any exposure, but there is enough evidence to warrant caution, and the World Health Organization’s own International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) recently announced that they are going to reassess the carcinogenic ( cancer-causing) ranking of EMF exposure. Folks who sleep or travel with Bluetooth or wireless devices for a long time are putting themselves at even greater risk. All of the evidence shows that the closer an EMF- emitting device is to one’s body/head, the more exposure and therefore the potential for deleterious health effects. The amount of exposure decreases the square of the distance the device is from your body, which means moving it away even tiny distances can help a lot. You can listen to world-class experts and doctors on this topic on Dr. Stair’s podcast, Causes Or Cures.
Want to really Zen Out?
If you are using the ZENBand for meditation, hypnosis, our ZENTone programs or basic relaxation, we highly recommend taking a “minimalist” approach and using it with an Mp3 player like this one to turn off your “urge” to check/look at your phone and to shut out distracting Apps, phone calls, email, social media, and really focus on your practice. For mindful practices that involve you being in water (float tanks, salt baths or birthing pools) , ditch your phone and get a water proof Mp3 player. We have a feeling you’ll feel significantly less anxious, more calm and much more relaxed.
What about Size?
One size fits most women. The ZENBands are 9 by 3.5 inches and elastic to stretch.
(If you are a big person or have a larger sized head, write us, and we can send you a larger sized band. )

A review of the ZENBand from Tao Wander
Just a Friendly Tip: Here are other easy ways to reduce EMF exposure in your day-to-day:
Are these noise-canceling?
ZENBands are not noise canceling, but the sound quality is great. While we LOVE relaxation, Wellness 101 is being aware of your surroundings. We want you to hear the alarms, the dog barking or the baby crying.
Do they come in different colors and designs?
Yes! As color shapes mood, we consider color therapy in our design, so ZENBands come in a variety of colors and unique patterns.
Can I see the pillow speakers?
Yes, you can! Below is a picture of the pillow speakers that are inserted in each ZENBand. The cord is designed with aluminum foil wire and braided, so it doesn’t tangle. Speakers are removable.
Who uses ZENBands?
In short, those into true wellness. ZENBands are used by individuals all over the world, in wellness centers, by travel agencies and hotels, spas, airports, hotels, cancer centers, dentist offices, women centers, rehab centers, birth centers, hypnosis centers and more. ZENBands are simple and effective wellness tools that can help you beat anxiety or stress; rest better, relax before treatments, travel more comfortably; listen to guided imageries, tunes or audio-books; fly easier; birth calmer & be in a more ZEN state of mind…, all without the pain of earbuds, hard headphones or having Bluetooth directly in your ear.
Seriously, would you walk around with microwaves in your ears? I didn’t think so.
Can I wash the ZENBand?
Yes. Please wash them in cold water. You can remove the speakers through the back slit by gently squeezing the edges of the speakers together and pulling them out. You won’t break them.
