I am a terribly light sleeper with an acute case of misophonia and I have a truly difficult time falling asleep, especially when I can hear the pounding of neighbors’ footsteps overhead and begin to fixate on/panic as a result of my inability to fall asleep. This product masks all of these noises and I actually slept a full nine hours the past two nights while wearing the sleepbuds on the cascade sound. Is this a perfect product? Well, I echo some consumer concerns such as the inability to stream anything other than the app, but these sleep buds are a true miracle for me and I couldn’t be more grateful to have the ability to finally fall asleep even when neighbors are up late pounding about. It’s important to read the directions thoroughly (especially the one that says your ears might be different sizes and require different size earbud covers—mine totally did)! I haven’t had the problem placing the buds back into the case like others (the white light shows when they are properly placed back into the case for charging, fyi). Please never stop making this product! Some of us need these sleepbuds for medical reasons and you are giving us our lives back—thank you!
Technically Excellent ; Comfort Improvable
This is a great product in that it works quite well to put one to sleep and help keep one there. The update that gave more choices in sounds for NO CHARGE was a welcome surprise!I really like 2 or 3 of them, but one that you love is all that is necessary to do the job well. This product is great for BLOCKING MY HUSBAND’S SNORING. I gave 4 stars because comfort could improve. I am a small person ( 5’3” -115 lbs)and the “small” sized earbud covers are still a bit large for me. One of my ears actually blistered from wearing the earbuds for the first few nights in a row I let my ear heal, and began using the earbuds every other night so as to protect the ear. My ears were soar for about 20 minutes when I woke up in the morning until I got used to the earbuds which took about a month. So if you can hang with them and be patient, the soreness will stop, and you will just enjoy the product. Also some of the sound selections I find very odd, but again, other people must like them so that is wonderful. The ocean ,rain and water sounds are my favorites. Please offer additional sized earbud covers as an in app purchase. Thank you.
Pretty Good But Needs Update
Please don’t get rid of them. Please come out with other soon. Please please. I hope you read these. I know this sounds pathetic but they help so much with my sleep issues, apnea and anxiety for falling asleep So sad to see these are being discontinued. Having sleep apnea/anxiety doesn’t help. But these buds fit so comfortably & when they work there the best sleep aid ever. I appreciate the transparency of the company on this issue. But it leaves me on what to do. Keep them & hope they won’t fail or return them and wonder what I’ll do without them. I get it though there’s something wrong they can’t seem to fix. Just wish they could !! App is not as bad as other say. Does need a update bcuz it doesn’t always catch on to the sleepbuds for some reason. Sound quality in my opinion is good. Yes it’s not super clear but... you want it suttle when sleeping. I love them. I sleep better no joke. I have sleep apnea & anxiety so this really helps. My only issue is that I’ve noticed that the headphones aren’t charging evenly but customer service which was great btw when contacted said there shud b a update to address.
They really work
I bought these to help me sleep in the same room as my husband. I have worn ear plugs every night for a few years and can tell you how to find ones that don’t hurt. Problem is even with the best ear plugs I couldn’t sleep hearing any hint of snoring. If I woke up and he was sleep it would take me hours to fall back asleep and that’s if I was nice and didn’t kick him out of the bedroom. Well these work completely different in that they provide another sound that competes with the snoring. I noticed that my brain can finally tune out the snoring and I wonder if the sounds from the ear buds have trained my brain to fall asleep faster when the sound is on. These are not norma headphones and they work by proving soothing sound of a limited choice to go straight to your ears. The buds are very comfortable. I have had no pain and they don’t fall out. They have to connect to your phone and it can take time. The trick that seems to work is having both buds next to each other in my hand near my phone and they now connect faster. If you have trouble sleeping due to a snorer, try these.
Great - except...
I got these at their initial launch so have had them over two years I think. LOVED THEM! My husband snores and regular foam earplugs sort of worked- unless I woke up and he was snoring and then I’d stay awake sometimes for several hours. The earbuds mask the snoring enough that I can get back to sleep. So I was/am addicted to these! Then after about 18 months, I started waking up in the morning with just one of my ears sore where the ear bud fits. I tried different sizes of the tips, but that didn’t help and the soreness will only go away if I don’t wear that earbud. So I usually wear just one with foam earplug in the other ear, then if I do wake up and need the other one, I will switch out the foam and wear both earbuds the rest of the night. Soreness is kept to a minimum that way. I honestly don’t know what happened to my ear that causes the soreness but I’m addicted so I’m dealing with it. I also have ringing in my ears, and since that is an internal sound, not external, the earbud noise really doesn’t mask it. I would love to see if any research has found a sound that competes or counteracts ringing and have that as one of the choices in the app.
As someone who’s dealing with a bad case of tinnitus I thought this might offer some long sought after relief. Small, comfortable and a charge that can last all night, WOW! After only one night I can honestly say that these are indeed ALMOST perfect. From the reviews I’ve read I see a lot of people with tinnitus are using these. And as most tinnitus sufferers know, hearing lost goes right along with it. That brings me to the first issue with the Sleepbuds, NO RIGHT/LEFT BALANCE ADJUSTMENT. It’s actually hard for me the believe that Bose, a company who’s reputation is build on quality sound equipment would overlook a feature like this. Surely this is something that can be addressed in an app update. My second issue is volume. It needs to be louder. At full volume my ear with hearing loss issues can just hear the sounds. If I could pump the sound up a little more than it’s capable of now it’d be great. Come on guys, we’ve paid out a pretty big chunk of change for these. Give us an update with the features a devise like this should have came with. No. 1 - Right/Left Balance Adjustment No. 2 - A boost in sound
If you have to deal with a noisy house when you need to sleep, if you need to deal with the unknowns of a hotel next to the airport, freeway or other source of acoustic distraction buy these and you will not be disappointed. I used a predecessors product before Bose came out with these and the Bose product since they were first made available and have never regretted it. They are worth every penny I paid and for the rest I’ve received in return. They are truly life changing when you need to sleep but are awakened time and again by the rest of the world around you. If that’s you too, try these. I do not work for Bose or anything affiliated with them, the only benefit I’ve ever received was being invited to participate in their initial product evaluation where I paid for the opportunity to get access to the preproduction product. This is all about how I feel about this extraordinary product which helps me nightly. The app is the way to use the sleep buds and it’s a good product too, I couldn’t be more pleased with both.
I got these for my birthday and they have really changed the way I sleep. I work late, which means I sleep through most of the morning while my family is going about their lives. This causes an issue as I’m trying to catch up on sleep and need peace and quiet, while it’s daytime and I can’t stop them from making noise. I put these in and I can no longer hear anything going on outside my room or inside, it’s amazing. The sounds that are available are okay, the only one I can sleep to is the rain one but it works well. What I would really like to see in this app is maybe teaming up with the Headspace app (a really good guided meditation app) and letting us download certain sleep podcasts to fall asleep to too. I typically end up falling asleep with one earbud in, and one ear open listening to the Headspace app. Short summary, great product, slightly pricey, the app itself is perfectly fine but you have to have a pair of sleep buds to use it so it’s basically a review of the sleep buds. The sounds are eh but I’m sure there’s at least one for everyone, wish there were more options though.
IOS 13.2.2 App Crashes Downloading Sounds
My wife and I both snore so these have dramatically improved our lives. We bought two pairs a year ago and have dealt with the usual pain: hard to put back in the charging case, occasional poor charge, occasional difficulty connecting to both buds. Regardless though, when they work our sleep is wonderful! Within one year the pair that had the most problems fell apart; the charging magnets fell off. We bought a third pair and need to initiate an exchange. Regardless though, when they work our sleep is wonderful!! The most recent issue now is the Bose Sleep app crashes when attempting to download additional sounds on IOS 13.2.2. Thankfully we already replaced our least favorite default sounds, so I only mention it in the hopes that Bose will fix it so those of us customers that love the product can continue to use them for as long as they hold up. Please continue with bug fixes so we can continue buying up and using more pairs before the discontinued stock dries up.
I wanted them to work so bad but ...
I love the idea, design, simplicity and what it was promised it would offer. I love my quiet comfort with active noise cancelling. (Wish somehow one day the technology can be implanted in these tiny earphones) I understand that this one wouldn’t actively cancel out noise however the “sound masking” feature does not do anything. My main issue is the volume. The volume is so LOW that I barely can hear it. This device is only good for sleeping in quiet environment for someone that requires some type of white noise to fall sleep. It does not mask any outside noise. I don’t know why there are so many warnings for high volume in the app? If you are putting on a device to fall sleep obviously you are trying to block out some outside noise otherwise why would you use it? If this can be fixed with an update it would make sense to have this device otherwise there is ZERO benefits from it. I read so many reviews about people complaining about the volume but didn’t believe it, however after using it now I understand. The idea was probably to use this for everyday sleeping situation but the market for blocking outside noise is much higher than listening to some faint sound coming out of a black hole from far far away. Lol
My boyfriend snores. I have sleep troubles. I can’t fall asleep and stay asleep. Mix that in with the jackhammer next to me and it’s disastrous for my sleep. I had been using the little ear plugs. Roll them up and jam the in my ear. Not only were they not enough to silence the snoring, but I’m pretty sure I’ve damaged my ear canal from shoving those foam plugs way too far into my ear. That being said the Bose Sleepbuds are pure magic! I love falling asleep to the rain. I adjust the volume based on the boyfriend’s snoring. It’s absolutely brilliant! There is an alarm to wake you as you may not hear your traditional clock/phone alarm. That is another genius selling point. Add all that together and I’ve had two of the best nights sleep since I moved in with the boyfriend. This is a must buy if your loved one snores. Sleeping in another room was simply not an option. I believe in sleeping next to the man I love. Not that I haven’t snuck out a few times along the way when the snoring was extra loud. Nonetheless, this is a game changer! Thank you Bose!!!
Love them but need a few tweaks
I really love my sleep buds. My husband is a snoring machine and now I don’t have to sleep in the guest room just to get some sleep. The only reason I don’t give 5 starts is because of the phone free mode. I would really love to use it as I don’t like the idea of Bluetooth in my ears all night but it has a super high pitched ring underneath the sounds and it drives me crazy. The second thing I would change is the sleep timer. The longest you can use is 8hrs or all night. I would love 10 hrs because sometimes on the weekend I get 8.5-9 hrs and if it suddenly turns off it wakes me. Also, sometimes I forget to charge them so if they turned off at 10hrs at least I would have juice for the next night. Otherwise they just run until they are out of batteries and I don’t realize I forgot to charge them until I’m getting in bed for the night. Overall they are lifesavers and I really love them by would just make a few updates.
Changing my 1/3 of my life
These sleep buds have made sleep amazing again! I’m a current junior in college and living in a apartment has been a struggling time. Leaving the TV on at night wouldn’t drown out the noise from my heavy footed neighbors. Even playing a sleep machine from my Alexa wasn’t enough for me to eliminate any disturbances. I’m a light sleeper and any amount of noise will make me loose my mind. With the Bose Sleep Buds right in my ear and the control of 20+ plus sounds to relax and fall asleep to it made me such a happier person in the mornings. It definitely takes a few nights to find the right fit for the buds but once that’s done it’s such an easy put on and relax. Battery life is not an issue! I still have 40% when I wake up at night and All I have to do is place them back in the case and let them charge for the day while I’m gone. I suggest these to anyone who struggles with falling asleep and even staying asleep. For $250 plus it’s a great investment for sleep.
Two drawbacks for me
First, what I love about these. They are super comfortable to wear and don’t fall out. However, and this is one of the two drawbacks I have. In my world, even at top sound level, I haven’t been able to find a sound that is both conducive to sleep and masks noise. I have trouble sleeping and noise is a big factor for me. I depended on a product from Bose to be better in this department. My second issue is bugs with the app. I was trying to download a new sound to try and it literally blew up my app to the point where I had to delete it and reinstall it to use my ear buds. I could not access anything from inside the app. From a programmer, this is an unacceptable experience and should never have gotten past QA. Lastly is just a similar wish to what others shared. The wish to be able to steam from other apps as only one of the sound options is soothing, at all, to me and as stated above, even at full sound it doesn’t mask noise well enough. Hopefully Bose will pay attention and improve on what has the potential to be an amazing product.
Love the new and improved models
Had the old ones which sucked all around. From the battery life to the app. These are great on the battery life so far! However the app needs major improvements. First:get rid of the pre-loaded sounds or make it simple for the user to delete the ones we don’t care for. I mean for $250 we deserve the ability to personalize them. Second : allow us to name the alarms. I would love to set an alarm for waking up, time for work it take you meds etc. Third: Even the first Version of the app with the original discontinued model of these allowed you to sample the sounds through the sleep buds. Come Bose this is disappointing for your brand! I have been with you guys since I was 10 years old! 34 years is a long time.. get it together quick Long time companies are dying. Suggestion: don’t be a on demand company who pushes products out to stay a head of other companies and lean on the consumer to report issues for you to try and fix them after it’s out. Offer product testing, get feedback, perfect it then put it on the market.🤷🏽♂️ I just saying. I was very disappointed with the discontinuation or the first models and how long it took to get a refund... I had to call you guys 3x a week for nearly 4 months. Yet I bought the new ones. At the end of the day you have loyal customers. Do better by then. Improve and fix your app.
