X.on is a new EEG headset where the intersection of quality and usability meet.
Developed by Brain Products’ team of experts
The sleek and mimimalistic device was developed by Brain Products’ team of experts, who have been successfully providing research-grade neurophysiology solutions for more than 25 years.
High quality EEG signals
To deliver high quality EEG signals and an impeccable user experience, X.on combines saltwater sponge-based electrodes on the outside and high-grade electronics on the inside.
Quick and easy access to brain signals
X.on comes with a handy app for Android™, allowing anyone to access brain signals quickly and easily. Put it on, switch it on, get your phone and dive into the beautiful traces your brain draws or access the signal from the network stream that is available instantaneously.
Would you rather use iOS over Android™? No problem! X.on is compatible with PEER, providing you a fully functional analysis tool for recording and analyzing ERPs from well-known paradigms.

Application Fields and Use Cases
Typical applications for which the X.on headset is a great match:
Education, Teaching, Pilot Testing
Teach the basics of EEG preparation, brain-based electrophysiology, signal acquisition and signal processing.
Test your pipelines or check if your experiment is working as planned, in a super convenient way.
Neuromarketing, Consumer & UX/UI Testing,
Biofeedback & Industrial Research
Record and analyze brain data in real-world settings to understand how people respond to different marketing strategies or product placements and designs. Use their brain responses to get further insight into their motivations, preferences, decisions and more!
Look at brainwaves at specific electrode channels and get an indication of a person’s meditative state, attentional state, or level of relaxation.
Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI),
Gaming and extended Reality (AR, VR)
Let your brain control a device, make music or paint.
Integrate brain data into your favorite online game and enhance the experience.
I think the entire world has been waiting for a mobile EEG headset that is easy to put on, easy to use, and that delivers high quality data – and in my opinion X.on is that headset.
When we got our first X.on, we took it out of the case and were literally getting great EEG data in a matter of minutes.
Given the quality, portability, and ease of use, I see X.on as the first real solution for research grade mobile EEG.

To make EEG accessible to anyone curious about the human brain, we are offering X.on as a solution that makes collecting brain data simple and straightforward without compromising signal quality.
Quick and easy hardware setup; intuitive control via Android™ app; no EEG know-how required.
Good and reliable EEG data; certified by Brain Products.
Allows you to exit the black box and process your raw data offline or online via LabStreamingLayer (LSL).
Sleek but robust, thus combining functionality with aesthetics.
No worries if you are new to the EEG field or lacking grant money. The X.on set is available for 2499€ (excl. shipping, tax and customs) and includes everything you need to get started right away.
Do you need several devices deployed in the field (i.e., for education or teaching purposes)? Or maybe you need a “take home” solution to collect data outside of the lab? X.on gives you all the flexibility you can imagine in terms of experimental design, recording population, and more.
