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.
While some might argue that Bose’s products tend to be a bit overpriced for the sound that you get, the company actually does a pretty good job when it comes to noise-canceling technology. If you’re a fan of Bose’s noise-canceling technology but don’t want a pair of headphones, then the company’s latest QuietComfort Earbuds might be worth checking out.
When it comes to Bose products, many in the audio community have criticized them for creating products that are overpriced for what you’re getting.

When you think of Bose, you might think of the company that makes headphones. However, in the past couple of years, Bose has expanded on what they do and dipped their toes into augmented reality with a pair of smart glasses. Unfortunately, it seems that the company has decided not to pursue the tech any further.
Not all headsets were made equal.

However, headphones created for specific purposes do sometimes come with compromises.

If the idea of being able to stream your Spotify playlists through speakers like those made by Sonos, Bose, or any Alexa-powered speaker, you might not have been able to unless you’re a Spotify Premium user.

When it comes to noise canceling headphones, Bose is a company that is widely regarded as one of the best in the industry.

Last year following a successful attempt at crowdfunding on Indiegogo, Bose officially made its Sleepbuds earphones available for purchase. However, it seems that about a year later, Bose has announced that they will be discontinuing the earphones, claiming that battery issues are the reason for their decision.
Just yesterday we heard rumors that Amazon could be planning on launching their own set of wireless earbuds with Alexa built into them. It turns out that the rumors were true because Amazon has since officially unveiled a bunch of new Echo devices, one of which is the Echo Buds.
Recently, there have been reports that Sonos could be working on a new portable speaker system that will allow users to play music through WiFi and Bluetooth. Those speakers have yet to make their debut, but it seems that Bose could have beaten them to the punch as the company has taken the wraps off their aptly named “Portable Home Speaker”.
If you search for noise canceling headphones on Amazon, chances are that one of the first results will be for a Bose product. The company has made some very popular noise canceling headphones that have done very well in the market. Bose is out with a new flagship model today called the Noise Cancelling Headphones 700.

Some might argue that Bose’s audio products are overpriced and that for those prices, you could get “better” sounding systems. However if there is an area that Bose is ahead of the competition in, it would be its noise-cancelling technology which is used in their QuietComfort lineup of headphones (although Sony seems to be catching up).
