These oversized headphones have no bass, but they do pinch your ears

NIRVANA is an ear acupressure therapy device engineered to restore balance to the nervous system through practices certified by the World Health Organization (WHO).  

Find relief from anxiety, reduce symptoms of fatigue and promote a deeper state of sleep. 

By stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, which controls unconscious body function at rest, NIRVANA supposedly accelerates the body’s relaxation response post-stress.

In a modern society filled with stress and hyper-arousal, the risk of autonomic imbalance is heightened due to hyperactivity of sympathetic nerves. 

Globally-renowned immunologist, Toru Abo, M.D., Ph.D., noted in his famous study that 70-80% of health disorders arise or are aggravated by an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system. 

Autonomic imbalance can manifest in many forms. 

Not only leading to an increased risk of health disorders but also having a drastic effect on quality of life.

The ear is the only part of the human body through which the vagus nerve can be physically stimulated. 

The vagus nerve carries 75% of all parasympathetic nerves, which control the function of the body at rest. 

Completely safe and non-invasive, ear acupressure is recommended for all patients and has no harmful side-effects.

Pin arrangement allows for precise pressure to acupressure points. 

Fine-tuned controls allow massage variations in 1/100 second increments.

A diverse variety of rhythms and pressure applications supposedly ensure that each massage focuses the user on a state of inner-bliss and calm.

Designed to comfortably cover the user’s ears, automatic head size adjustment accommodate any head shape.

Operation sounds of NIRVANA are close to levels of white noise. 

While unfamiliar at first, the ears quickly adjust, supposedly calming your mind and promoting focus.

I for one am sceptical about this oversized device, however, if I ever get the chance try it out it may prove me wrong.
