Bose SleepBuds II: MUST HAVE

At the tail end of 2017, SCDW reported on the original Sleepbuds after Bose acquired Hush that had pioneered the technology. Now, a few years later, here is the second iteration of the Bose Sleepbuds, with technology clinically proven to help people fall asleep.

This product is solely for helping a person fall asleep, they aren’t earbuds to listen to music or take calls. It is simply there to help you fall asleep night after night. Combining a new acoustic and electronic design, a new enclosure and proprietary ear tips, these buds block, cover and replace audible distractions – be it snoring, loud neighbours, traffic outside etc.

To help you fall asleep and drown out the distracting noises, there are 14 noise-masking tracks mirror the frequencies of night-time disruptions, hiding them under soothing layers of audio. If you have trouble sleeping due to anxiety or stress, 15 Naturescapes help calm with walks down a Country Road, Shore Line, Boardwalk, and beyond; 10 Tranquilities help lower stress and tension with tones to Lift, Drift, Dream, and more.

The buds have a 10-hour battery with an additional 30 hours when using the charging case and are both sweat and water-resistant.

The Sleepbuds II will be available from October 13th for £229.95, which may seem a little expensive for a set of earphones that are only good for one thing. But in truth, can you put a price on a good night’s sleep?
