Keeping not returning 5/5
I know there is a buyback. Not returning. Still best product available.
Changed my (sleep) life 5/5
I’ve had these buds since the very beginning. The app is near perfect, and so are the buds. I know these are going to be discontinued but please don’t abandon them. I’ve been through two pairs with charging magnet issues (which fall off every 6 months or so) but continue to use them each and every night. Thank you for the amazing product and app
Life changing if it’s working 4/5
These sleep buds have completely changed my ability to sleep well, especially with a husband who snores. It’s amazing. My only issue is that the charging has major glitches. This is my 3rd set that I’ve had to exchange. Customer service is always very helpful though but they still need to work out some tech kinks on how the buds charge. The buds will sometimes say they are charged fully but they aren’t actually. Or sometimes no matter how long you charge them and it shows they are charging, it won’t go past some random percentage (like 37% which wouldn’t last you a full night). Well worth the glitches so far though, because of how amazing, effective and comfortable they are. I love them!!
Transformative sleep 5/5
I love this product and hope that you will continue figuring out how to perfect them. I have used them regularly to help me sleep next to a snoring husband but my favorite moment was during a two day race. We had five brief hours to sleep before our next run. We had to sleep on a gym floor with other runners and these earplugs worked wonders blocking the sounds to the number of people packing up or entering the space. I was able to sleep soundly. Thank you!!
Stay the course, Bose 5/5
The app is great. The product is great - when it works. I know Bose has withdrawn Sleepbuds from the market, but I want to implore them to keep on working until they can be reintroduced, while maintaining Bose high product standards. Sleepbuds have been a real game changer for me, and I ask all past and present users to let Bose know we want them to continue addressing the bugs. Please.
Ah, sleep! 5/5
I’ve had to go through a couple of these, but the new one is perfect! Very easy to connect, very responsive, and the choice of sounds and volume make sleep wonderful again. Thank you!
Suddenly close app 4/5
Please fix this problem when tapping sound library and wanting to add extra sounds suddenly close my iOS 13
So worth it! 5/5
By Ali Kite
These things literally are a life saver! I could not sleep in a house full of my dogs and a significant other who works an opposite shift. They’ve helped me survive third shift and a drastic switch to days! They’re names my “stress relief” rightfully so. The only thing I’d change would be more options for different noises.
They stopped working completely 1/5
The app doesn’t connect to the headphones anymore , and leaving them overnight to charge won’t help the headphones connect either .
I am devastated! I have acute chronic Tinnitus due to a cyst that was removed from my brain. After 2 brain surgeries, Sleepbuds are the only therapy that has worked for me. I can’t sleep through the night without them. I’m freaking out because what if mine quit working? I won’t be able to replace them and I won’t be able to sleep. Please reach out to me.
These things are amazing. They completely block out outside noise with soothing sounds. Very sorry to hear they are being discontinued due to battery issues. I haven’t had any issues with mine. Hope they figure it out and bring them back soon.
Work Overseas 5/5
By tytus 12
I work overseas and the schedule is 247 at a military base with lots of nose. Everyone lives in 2 man housing. The need for some kind of nose barrier and alarm clock is a must. This product works perfectly.
These are so frustrating 1/5
Loved them at first then they did nothing but aggravate me. Wouldn’t connect to phone, wouldn’t charge, would die after an hour. There is a reason fhese are being discontinued
Great Use of Available Tech, Hope for Advancements in Future 4/5
I really enjoy my sleep buds. They are very expensive, but there’s nothing else like them on the market so I think they’re worth the price. The buds are incredibly small and comfortable. I’m consistently able to fall and stay asleep even as my roommate blares the tv into the wee hours. I do wish they could hold a longer charge and stream like typical earbuds. I understand this is a constraint of technology. Hopefully as further research is done Bose can produce a sleepbuds 2 that retains the comfort and effectiveness of this product while adding additional functionality like streaming music. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone who struggles with roommates or neighbors with nocturnal lifestyles.
Please bring this product back!! 5/5
By hubby is olympian snorer
I’m distraught to hear about the recall. I’m literally praying my Bose sleep buds will last until your new-and-improved version is rolled out. Please give me some hope that you won’t abandon us, the snore afflicted!
💕💕Cannot do without - EVER! 4/5
I love my Bose sleep buds. I cannot even express the gratitude I have for them. My husband is a loud to me snorer and since I purchase these back in March of this year, 2019, I have been able to finally get sleep. Granted, I do have them all the way up, but man, I cannot be any happier! They ONLY downfalls I have is that, 1- I wish there were more noise canceling sounds to load, and 2- Bose has discontinued the buds!!! What!?!? OMG, please Bose, please don’t forget those who are so happy with this product! This app is awesome and we need it to continue to grow and update!!!
I love these and sad they are discontinued. 5/5
I have had the best sleep in 15 years with these. I’m thinking of trying to buy a 2nd pair for fear these break and I won’t be able to buy.
Announcement in Sleep buds 5/5
I just read your announcement regarding your production and concerns with sleep bud problems. I have to say PLEASE DO NOT STOP SUPPORTING THE CURRENT EARBUDS! They were given to me as a gift from my son last Christmas as he knew my sleep struggles for years with PTSD and night terrors/insomnia. I have never slept better and my husband will testify as well. I’ve never had any issues with my buds and have in fact recommended to my patients with chronic sleep issues and they have lived them as well. While I’m always willing to try new tech the current tech I have with Bose and the sleep buds has been amazing. While I noted in your FAQ on the current buds you would continue support. I ask again for those of us it has made such a life changing difference...Please don’t stop supporting the current buds until new options are available. Thank you so much Tina Jones
Best Thing Ever 5/5
I love these sleep buds. They have changed my life. I sleep with them every single night. They are a bit difficult to connect for charging but other than that, they work fantastic!
Amazing, I can finally sleep!! 5/5
My husband snores really bad; it’s like having a truck honking it’s horn all night. I tried noise machines, adding more fans in the room, an air purifier and I could still hear him until I got the sleep buds. The different sounds are great, but how it helps you concentrate on that specific sound canceling noises around you and being so comfortable for sleeping; I can’t sleep without them. Love the product!!!!
Love them even after a year 5/5
I am sorry that these will be discontinued, however I’m sure Bose will develop an even better product. I have had mine for about a year now, while I had hoped they would help with my Tinnitus I realized my ringing is too loud to be masked. The Sleep Buds do a wonderful job with background sounds so sleep is better for me. There were a few times that I had one or both Sleep Buds that did not charge. I chocked it up to not being positioned in the charger correctly, it may or may not have been the case. It may have been improved by an update. Either way I make sure they are charging correctly now. And have not had a problem like that for a very long time.
The silicone covers for the Buds needed replacing a few months ago. I expected that after daily use.
The only thing that has never gone away are the random connection issues between the app and the Buds. It didn’t matter if it was the phone or tablet. Replacing it into the charger always fixed the connection error so no real deal breaker.
I will be keeping mine and continue to use them.
Thank you Bose
Love these! 5/5
Please don’t discontinue them! They give me a good nights sleep, finally. Earplugs just don’t work, snoring goes right through. The Bose sleepbuds helped me sleep well on a work trip this week where sleep was critical. The first night I was awoken very early (430am in a different time zone than mine by 2 hours, so 230am to me) by street sweepers and garbage trucks 14 floors below; night 2 and beyond I wore these and slept through the night flawlessly each time. I’ve never had a problem with mine.
Sleeping again! 5/5
I’m so thankful for the Bose sleepbuds. I can now sleep with my snoring husband and don’t wake anymore in the night with noises. I’m sleeping better than I have in years. This product is a godsend honestly!
Best sleep support 5/5
By sloandm phone
This is the best product I’ve ever had used for a sleep aide. Absolutely love it!!
Great when they work 2/5
The right earbud charges sometimes, sometimes they will be 58 % sometimes 100% sometimes 28%.
No reason why downloaded sleep case 2.0 doesn’t matter. If you reset the case it will charge to 100 for a night or two.
The shower sounds you can hear the loop. It’s like a tone in the background.
But when they work they are awesome!
Bose sleep buds 5/5
Life changing. Finally able to sleep after years of listening to snoring. Read they would no longer make them because of technical issues. That in my opinion would be a bad thing for those of us that depend on them.
Fix the Glitches and It Could Be Perfect 1/5
By Blonde Enuff
What a great solution for somebody who sleeps with a snorer or sleeps so lightly that they hear when the air conditioner kicks on.
When this product works, it is phenomenal. So many downsides however.
Over 80% of the time my right earbud stops working after an hour of sleep. Yes I make sure it is fully charged. Yes I clean the contacts every night. Yes I have the latest version of software. Yet the left earbud works all night long and the right only works for about an hour which means I am forced to sleep on one side to block the additional noise. And I can still hear the noise.
Another huge drawback is that when you place the earbuds back in the case in the morning, it is a challenge to make the bud connect with the contact in the case. It takes several attempts and too many gyrations to manipulate the earbuds to connect so that you see the white charging light come on for each earbud.
But wait, there’s more. When you go to bed and you’re tired the last thing you wanna do is spend 10 minutes removing the earbuds from their case and putting them back in over and over again until your iPhone sees that they are being used. The app on the iPhone cannot find the earbuds until you’ve tried three or four times. This is a consistent problem. I’ve only had it worked the first time about a dozen times in the year I have had this.
Great idea, when it works it works well. It’s just there’s so many things about it that don’t work and are a total frustration.
Please add a few brainwave options. I love what they can do for me during sleep and awake. It’s the only option I was really hoping to find... otherwise the product is great. Options for listening are lacking.
Pretty Good But Needs Update 5/5
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.
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!!!
Changing my 1/3 of my life 5/5
By Evan Kolde
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.
Great, wish there was a fog horn noise 5/5
By Kona in the bay
I love this product (and I’m a very particular sleeper). My only wish is that a fog horn soundtrack was available! Please add it!
Best sleep ever! 5/5
These are the best for sleep. They block out noise from other people, outside traffic, etc. They play nice sounds which are relaxing. My only wish is that they would offer more sounds in the sound library, or get new sounds more often. It’s really not enough to knock off an entire star for though. They don’t hurt my ears like ear plugs did. They are tiny and very comfortable. One of my best purchases ever.
Just great 5/5
I usually sleep with a portable fan to offset any noise. It a must have if you wake up easy like I do. Fits great and I like the alarm option.
I can finally sleep 5/5
By Boppin Berta
With the Bose earbuds are a life changer. I can sleep through the night! My marriage is saved!!
Ear buds and app are good. Easy to use, comfortable... Volume control is also easy to use. I do not understand why there is not a balance or separate volume controls. Could be there is, if so it’s well hidden. Anyway that’s why four and not 5 stars. Nobody hears the same out of both ears.
Life changing sleep aid 5/5
After I had kids, I became a very light sleeper. Any sound or movement woke me up and I had a hard time getting back to sleep. I have worn ear plugs for many years, but the Bose sleep buds are an entirely different (better) experience. I don’t hear anything!
ALMOST Perfect 4/5
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
Great product and app - would love to see more sounds in the future.
Apart from that, excellent job by the developers and manufacturers of this hardware - I hope it lasts me forever.
Great design, easily functioning app 5/5
The app is very sleek and elegant like Bose products. The setup for the sleep buds was very smooth and easy.
The app itself looks nice and functions very well. I do wish there were more included sounds/tracks, but the selection works well for me.
I've used the product for several nights so far and really does the trick. I get deeper, consistent sleep next to my snoring partner
Sleep aid and tinnitus relief 5/5
By Don Vito Swango
Spent 20 years in the Marines and my ears ring constantly these sleep buds are heavenly sent from my wife. I wear them to help me sleep and block the noise. White noise really helps only bad thing is I can’t listen to water, you can figure that one out. Great product
Great dedicated app for sleepbuds 5/5
App is useless if you’re not a Bose Sleepbuds owner; that said it’s kind of amazing they did such a good job on a single-purpose app.
Amazing Product! 5/5
By NYC Grad Student
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!
Pretty good, could have more functionality 4/5
Pretty good product overall, helps me sleep in noisy dorms. It’s cool that the alarm saves to the sleepbuds even if they disconnect, I wish this was available just playing the sound too. Sometime the sleepbuds disconnect and it wakes me up, but if they just kept playing it would be better, seems like this would be easy to change.
User friendly 3/5
App is efficient and easy to navigate. Font size is too small and color contrast makes the screens difficult to read at times.
Need more sounds 4/5
I would love if someone would add a rainy day with occasional thunder in the back ground, before I bought these ear buds 2 days ago I listened to you-tubes rain/thunder, please update with more sounds. But I’m very satisfied with my buds, thanks Donna
No charge 2/5
Ever since the last update. My right earbud only charges to 58%. Sometimes it doesn’t even charge at all and unfortunately you realize that when it’s time to sleep. Needs update ASAP
More Ambience Sleep Choices 4/5
First night was excellent. Partner’s snoring, finally after thirty years or marriage, was not an issue! Stayed in bed all night!
Wish there were more sleep sound choices. Shower a little light.
Bose Sleep Buds 5/5
Great product and sleep app.
