Many people, myself included, find they sleep better with an audio book or radio station playing. Bose sleep buds don’t to that, but are designed to be worn while we sleep.

Bose Sleepbuds II will not stream your own music, audiobooks or podcasts. Instead, they play specially curated relaxation content to help you fall asleep and masking sounds to keep noises from disturbing sleep. In order to achieve a form factor small enough to be comfortable for sleeping and accommodate a battery that can support sound playback for an entire night, BOSE made the conscious design decision not to stream audio to Sleepbuds. Instead, the sound files are stored on each of the earbuds and played back locally, dramatically extending the audio playback time achievable in this tiny form factor. They are still a connected device, so your phone must have support Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). This means Apple devices with iOS 11 onwards are compatible, as well as most devices with Android 6.0 or later.

The second generation design brings together all of the features and benefits users wanted and more, while staying true to the vision of creating a warm, friendly and inviting experience from beginning to end. The collaboration between industrial design and mechanical engineering on Bose Sleepbuds II was an achievement in the delicate balance between performance, functionality and design, all coming together for the ideal experience, falling asleep and staying asleep.

Long-lasting, lightweight and tiny - with enough power to last the whole night through. A lot to ask of a battery smaller than a pea. BOSE second-generation Sleepbuds II were rebuilt around a reliable new battery, the same used in hearing aids.

Via BOSE: To say our designers and engineers obsessed over the details is putting it lightly. Subtle changes customers would never know about or see, like how we miniaturised components to fit around the battery and still sit comfortably in the ear. All while maintaining form and the prevalent circular curved design - now with a reliable battery to last the full night through with one charge.

While the perfect tiny, reliable battery is important, comfort and form was always kept front of mind. BOSE wanted all the power without sacrificing fit. While mechanical engineering focused on function, and industrial design worked on form, the acoustics and digital signal processing engineers diligently tuned their masking sounds to optimise them for a new, more powerful driver.

All this, together with better passive noise blocking from the redesigned earbud and five new masking sounds, means fewer distracting nighttime sounds (like snoring), so we can sleep better through the night.
