Audio brand Bose is already the foremost name in noise-cancelling technology, and now they’re taking that concept to the next logical place. Specifically, the brand has just dropped new noise-masking sleepbuds, which fit comfortably in the ear, and synchronise 10 pre-loaded “sleeptracks” with the frequency patterns of intrusive nighttime sounds such as snoring, barking, traffic, noisy neighbors, or annoying bedmates. As a result, external distractions get buried underneath a layer of ambient sound, thereby enabling a sufficient night’s sleep…for once.
Representing a breakthrough in engineering, each Bose sleepbud weighs in at a mere 1.4 grams, and measures just over 1cm in respective length and height. Despite their insanely compact size, the buds manage to host a rechargeable battery, a transducer, an amplifier, and a micro-circuit board. Furthermore, the exterior includes a laser-etched antenna, which enables connectivity to your smartphone or tablet, and allows you to set an alarm or adjust your preferences. The buds also attach to noise-isolating StayHear + Sleep tips, creating yet another barrier between your ears and the outside world. Each tip is plush, weightless, and pliable, meaning it won’t stir you from your slumber.
Sleep deprivation is a legitimate health threat affecting millions upon millions of people across the world. That means the Bose Noise-Masking Sleepbuds are literal life-savers when you think about it. They last for 16 hours on a single charge (a charging case is included with purchase), connect with the Bose Sleep app, fit comfortably in the ear, and mask external distractions by way of 10 pre-loaded ambient layers of sound. Buy them at a retail price of $379 AUD, and start getting the sleep you deserve.
