If you have a hard time sleeping because of annoying noises nearby, Bose found a solution. The company decided to release a pair of headphones with a twist. Instead of releasing noises, you can use the in-ear devices to block noises, so that you can deal with snoring, traffic sounds, or barking that might keep you up at night.
The Sleepbuds block the noise coming from outside
Just like their name suggests, the Sleepbuds help you sleep better. They are wireless, and can be introduced directly into your ears. Afterwards, they help you fall asleep by playing calm sounds. Also, the purpose of the sounds is to block all the noise coming from outside, which might disturb you.
Unfortunately, you cannot make a custom set of sounds to play while you’re trying to fall asleep. However, the Sleepbuds come with a smartphone app, and it offers you a variety of sounds and tunes you can choose from. They are all meant to have a soothing effect and not keep your mind occupied, while still covering the outside sounds.
The headphones can even play your morning alarm
Since all these noises will be blocked, then you might be afraid you won’t hear your morning alarm. Fortunately, Bose found a solution. The app allows you to set an alarm as well, which will play directly in the Sleepbuds. This is perfect if you share the room with someone else you don’t want to wake up.
The idea of an alarm being played directly into your ears might sound disturbing and also damaging for the hearing. However, since the Sleepbuds play everything soothingly, the volume of the alarm will probably be kept at a low level as well.
However, the Sleepbuds are only a prototype at the moment. Bose started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, and set a goal of $50,000. All those who donated money were promised a pair of earphones. The company managed to raise $440,000, and all the available pairs are sold out, but they might get on the market sooner that we would expect.
