We never realise how important sleep is, until we don’t get enough of it, Fortunately, Bose Sleepbuds are the tech equivalent of counting sheep.
Every modern man can be forgiven for wanting to shut the world out from time to time. From traffic noise, to noisy neighbours, rattling air conditioners and endless office background chatter, the world can be a symphony of sound that we often take for granted. But when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, we need to switch tracks.
Sound gurus Bose has unveiled its newest innovation, the noise-masking Sleepbuds, tiny, truly wireless earbuds that combine an ultra-comfortable design with soothing sounds to block, cover, and replace the most common noises that interfere with sleep.
Bose Sleepbuds are the smallest Bose product ever made and are packed with proprietary technology. Pacled with ten pre-loaded “sleeptracks” that mirror the frequencies of snoring, neighbours, dogs, traffic, and more – hiding them beneath a layer of relaxing audio – these bedroom essentials feature new patented ear tips for a snug, soft, barely-felt fit, and can run for up to 16 hours.
With the Sleepbuds, the brand introduced its new noise-masking technology. The buds aren’t active noise cancelling headphones, nor are they in-ear headphones with an added feature, and they certainly don’t stream music. All they do is make the rest of the world pipe down.
In a sophisticated engineering feat, each bud, weighing just 1.4 grams, and measuring just over one centimetre wide and high, features an exterior with a laser-etched antenna for reliable connectivity to a phone or tablet, while inside there’s a rechargeable silver-zinc battery, a minuscule transducer, and a micro-circuit board with flash memory to store the pre-loaded noise-masking sound files.
At the end of each bud is a noise-isolating StayHear+ Sleep tip – another line of defense that creates a physical barrier to unwanted sound. Soft, pliable, and virtually weightless, the tips are optimised specifically for rest, so they feel great and stay in all night, regardless of sleep position.
Of course, there’s an app that links earbuds with your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth, allowing you to set an alarm for the morning, and choose the sleeptrack and volume that work best for the environment.
Bose Sleepbuds come in a brushed aluminum charging case that provides up to 16 hours of battery life unplugged – perfect for travel and overnight stays.
