Bose revealed its ‘SleepBuds’ second-generation that’s claims it will provide users with a good night’s sleep by masking sounds that normally disturb bedtime. The ‘Bose Sleepbuds II’ not only claims to mask sounds such as insects buzzing, dog barking, street traffic and your partner’s snoring, but can also play calming tracks to help you fall asleep. The launch comes two years after the company introduced its first-gen SleepBuds due to battery problems, which have since been discontinued.
Bose says that a lot of other enhancements and enhancements over its predecessor also come with the new edition. Via the ‘Bose Sleep’ App, which is available for free on Android and iOS, users can now set an alarm and change the volume. In addition, three new categories of content are now available, including 14 noise-masking songs, 15 natural landscapes and 10 ‘tranquilities’. The unit is IPX4 rated for resistance to water and sweat, and comes with a new NiMH battery that the company claims can provide up to 10 hours of use on a single charge.
Bose says on its official product page that the system offers a range of groundbreaking new innovations to ensure better and deeper sleep with less nighttime interruptions. “Bose noise-masking technology blends passive noise blocking with programmed noise-masking sounds to cover up interruptions that might otherwise wake you up … Our sounds are programmed to play reliably and at just the right mix of frequencies to make your brain less susceptible to excessive noise,” the company said.
Bose also claims that, thanks to the safe fit provided by the patented eartips, the unit can remain in place and stay relaxed during the night. The buds even come with an ultra-lightweight build and an extended list for a blissful night’s sleep of 35 songs. The Bose Sleepbuds II is priced at $249.95 and can now be pre-ordered on the US website of the company, with official availability beginning October 6th.
