" ...  The sounds genuinely stop you from "thinking" yourself awake.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Take a bit of getting used to and not all the noises help but settled in nicely and they work well.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Bose Sound Library will increase over time for more sounds. ... Great purchase and I consider myself to be an audio expert.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Thank you Bose for bringing peaceful sleeping back in our bedroom. ... Fit is perfect, finishing too, sounds could enjoy more themes or variations.  ...  "
comment
" ...  After 3 weeks of use I feel that these have been a very good investment and have helped to mask 99% of the noises that were previously waking me up every night.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I set the controls to generate a gentle sound of waves on the beach all night and the alarm to provide my wake up at the set time.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This was fun, cycling through the different options and seeing which one best masked snoring noises (for me, it was the "warm static" option with the volume turned up a bit from the default).  ...  "
comment
" ...  The buds are very comfortable, and, while it was working the noise masking was quite efficient.  ...  "

" ...  It is possible to sleep with these in, they are extremely snug and remain in place, far less intrusive than foam ear-plugs.  ...  "

comment
" ...  They are however the most comfortable earbuds you could possibly have in your ears while you're asleep.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Never fell out during the night, worked a great, comfortable and pleasant sounds.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This is a much more “natural” option and I really have slept much better with these in.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The fit isn't perfect and is noticeable but it's still rather comfortable once you get the hang of putting them in right you have to twist them slightly to get that snug fit so it's not pressing into your ear when sleeping in your side.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They are quite comfortable too.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I do give two stars though, for the comfort of the fit, and the effectiveness of the buds when they do work. ... They really are very comfortable.  ...  "
comment
" ...  There’s no discomfort at all, and yet they stay in place all night.  ...  "

" ...  But unfortunately 6 weeks in to my purchase, the right earbud no longer will charge above 48%. ... Phoned them up about my right earbud not charging and they told me 2 weeks to get a replacement.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Very tricky to fit in the recharging station so not charged when I wanted to use them  ...  "
comment
" ...  After 6 months of use, right bud started to give uncomfortable chirping sounds, and left one simply never charges fully anymore despite the light indicator saying it's full.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The same cannot be said for design failure in the charging station.  ...  "
comment
" ...  On a couple of occasions the buds would stop charging and required a case reset. ... Not great when you come to use them at night and there's no charge because at some unspecified point they had randomly stopped charging! ... After this, the right bud started to report only 48% charge in the app even with the case reporting it was fully charged.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Waste of hard earned money - batteries charged for a few days continually yet one showed only a 40% charge - had to replace them in charger a few times so that iPhone software could eventually locate the buds.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Only thing is that the getting them back in the charging case can be a bit fiddly and awkward.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The other big issue is charging. ... The charger was continuously connected to the wall socket. ... Despite this, I often found in the evening that either just one or sometimes both buds were just half charged.  ...  "

" ...  Buds hold 12/13 sounds. ... Realised one bud wasn't working, but, when put back into the case, then immediately taken out at the save time they worked perfectly.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I used earplugs to block out sound (which otherwise I would focus on) but hated the sensation of inserting the plug in my ear canal. ... These sleepbuds just sit on your ear canal, making a gentle but effective seal (instantly muffling sound) and are held in place by a soft-feeling “wing”.  ...  "
comment
" ...  She is able to manage with foam earplugs, whilst I have suffered for over a decade, having tried all manner of earplugs, including custom fit, and regularly resort to the spare room. ... It really is quite ingenious how they snap back into place onto the magnetic charging pins, and presently I use the glow of my iPhone, so as not to disturb my wife.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I kept using these for almost 3 weeks before sending them back. ... After this, the connection worked for a couple of days, then again, it didn't.  ...  "
comment
" ...  However, problems have developed after the first few weeks of use, making the buds unusable. ... The right bud now only lasts 4-5 hours, so is effectively useless. ... They then admitted that the sleepbuds needed to be replaced, but that this would take 3 weeks (they have to be shipped to Belgium and then it takes two weeks from when Bose receive them to get a new pair).  ...  "
comment
" ...  I said that 2 weeks wasn't acceptable and they then said I could go to a Bose store and get a replacement . ... Im sure other people have bought these as a very expensive last resort to noise issues, and the thought of 2 weeks without annoys and worries me.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I love the Bose noise cancelling headphones but these are nowhere in the same league of quality.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They also block out the noise incredibly well. ... They're almost like earplugs that play sounds as well to double up on the noise masking effect.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Perhaps Bose can make them noise-cancelling, in years to come, but I am very pleased with their noise-masking qualities.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It does work a bit differently, the Sleepbuds don't form a seal with your ear, so perhaps they block 30-40% of the noise, and then you mask the rest of the unwanted noises by playing one of the pre-selected Sleepbud noises.  ...  "

comment
