Bose’s best headphones don’t even play music, but they could help you sleep

I know a few people who will probably love these.

Bose might be pioneers in the art of Active Noise Cancelling on its headphones, but its research showed that it wasn’t suited for sleep. Ever been in a really silent place? Yeah, that’s probably why, being left alone with your thoughts and being able to hear all your body’s minor noises is kinda maddening.

What the company did find worked well was noise masking. That’s the same type of tech that goes into white noise generators or the myriad of noisemaking devices to help soothe your fractious offspring at naptime.

The Bose Noise-Masking Sleepbuds are nifty noise generators, that are truly wireless and fit inside your ears, so they don’t tangle up while you toss and turn.

The included silicon eartips and earhooks keep the buds comfortably in your ears, all night long. They mask all of the noise around you, helping you get uninterrupted sleep. They can’t stop a child actually shaking you, but if that’s happening – you probably shouldn’t be sleeping anyway.

If you live near a subway, LRT or even just a main road, the Sleepbuds might be your next new best friend. Want to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of a fireplace but your apartment doesn’t have one? How about rolling waves on a beach? Or maybe rustling leaves is your thing. All of these and more are in the library of sounds in the Bose Sleep app.

The Bose Sleepbuds are $249 a set, but what price is a peaceful slumber? People pay good money for peaceful holidays, shouldn’t every night be that restful?
