Sleeping with the Bose Sleepbuds

Bose Sleepbuds Review – Noise-masking Technology at its best

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

The Bose sleepbuds are incredibly comfortable earbuds that mask ambient noise in an attempt to help you sleep better. That’s at least what Bose designed them for. For this review, I have slept wearing the sleepbuds, but I also set out to discover additional use cases for them. I was particularly interested in finding out if the Bose sleepbuds could replace or augment my noise-canceling headphones for traveling.

When Bose announced the sleepbuds, I got super excited. Not because, I needed help sleeping, but because I immediately thought about using them while traveling, as a much more comfortable alternative to the Bose Quiet Comfort 35 Noise-Canceling headphones I have been using. But before we take a deep-dive into this particular use-case, let’s find out how good the sleepbuds performed for what Bose designed them for.
