Several years ago, Bose announced a pair of earphones called the Sleepbuds. Unlike regular earbuds, these Sleepbuds were designed to be worn while you were asleep, hence the name. It is designed to help mask background noise and sound, while also offering relaxing content that is supposed to help users achieve a good night’s rest.
However, there were issues regarding battery life that ultimately led to the company discontinuing it, but it seems that they have not completely given up just yet. Bose has since announced that they are now back with its second-gen model in the form of the Sleepbuds II that will come with some improvements over its predecessor.
This comes in the form of a slight redesign where they are now just a quarter-inch deep, meaning that users can wear them while they’re sleeping and they should be relatively comfortable if you lie on your side. There’s a new coating as well that prevents them from “squeaking” against the fabric of your pillow, and an improved antenna that should make Bluetooth connectivity more reliable.
Bose has also addressed the battery issues where it will offer up to 10 hours of use. There are also a bunch of new audio content which includes 14 noise-masking tracks, 15 naturescapes, and 10 “tranquilities”. The Bose Sleepbuds II does not come cheap at $250, but if you’re having trouble getting a good night’s rest, then perhaps these earbuds might be worth looking into.
