Bose SleepBuds are a pair of wireless noise-masking earbuds with built-in soothing sleep and relaxation sounds
UPDATE OCT 2019: BOSE SLEEPBUDS HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED
In a surprise announcement, Bose has announced that it is completely withdrawing Bose Sleepbuds from the market, after a raft of of faulty battery complaints.
In a statement on the Bose website, John Roselli, General Manager of the Bose Corp said:
“You’ve reported issues with your sleepbuds™ not charging fully, powering down unexpectedly, or both. And you’ve let us know. We’ve heard you. We’ve read your posts. We’ve documented your calls. …. We’ve also relentlessly researched the root cause with a team dedicated to nothing else. Based on what we knew, we believed that software and firmware updates could fix the issues. But the failures have continued, and recently, they’ve increased. That led us to look more closely at each piece of hardware. And we learned that while the battery we chose functions safely, it doesn’t work as consistently or predictably as it should to meet our standards.
For that reason, we’re discontinuing sleepbuds™.” Read the full statement here
Bose will be offering a full refund to anyone who has purchased Sleepbuds until 31st December 2019.
Bose, known to be experts in the noise-cancelling industry with a wide range of noise-cancelling headphones available on the market has now introduced SleepBuds!
What makes the Bose sleep buds noticeable is that they don’t play any music. Like any normal earbuds, you can also pair these earphones with your smartphone. However, instead of MP3 files, you can choose a soothing soundtrack from the Bose Sleep app.
The app comes with ten pre-installed sounds with a range of relaxation boosters, and you can choose one which you find the most soothing.
The earbuds come in a silver, puck-shaped charging case. Before going to bed, simply take them out from the case and put them in your areas. Next, pick out the track and adjust the volume as well as the duration. If you raise the volume too high, the app sends a notification that you might not hear surrounding sounds like your alarm.

However, you don’t need to worry too much about missing the alarm as the Sleepbuds have a built-in alarm that is toggled on in the Bose Sleep app. The track playing in the earbuds slowly fades out, and the alarm starts blaring, waking you up.
Featuring silicone tips and a pair of wings, the earbuds are available in three sizes; large, medium, and small. Moreover, they are highly comfortable and don’t shift or fall out even if you tend to move around a lot in your sleep.
The charging case for these earbuds come with separate compartments for each earbud, and there are magnets that pull them into place. There are LEDs fitted on the case that tell you the buds are charging, and five lights placed in the center tell you the charging status of the case itself.
Bose, like always, has gone the extra mile and add some thoughtful touches. For example, the bottom of the case is made of rubber so that the container doesn’t skid across your nightstand if you accidentally manage to hit it.
These earbuds also feature excellent battery life and can last up to 16 hours in just one charge. So, you get roughly two nights of sleep. Moreover, the charging case can also provide another 16 hours which means you can use the buds for a week before you need to charge them.
