Would give a 0

does not cancel outside noise can only play the build in songs in the buds requires the boss sleep app to work and phone to be out of sleep mode loses connection on ear buds often at least they are comfortable

  • from Brandon, MB


These will only play 7 "songs" to help you sleep. They will not play music from your phone or tablet and can only use the Bose App. WAY too much money for what it can do.

Risky gamble, my experience is average

Warning: cannot be returned once opened. Sleepbuds are a great idea: here's what I liked about them: Alarm feature - wake up without waking up your partner... Noise masking - at high volumes, it is very effective at masking noises... Really beautiful design - they look great! This is what I didn't like: Not that comfortable for me: I sleep on my side, and can either hear these rubbing against the pillow or feel them hurting my ear... for some reason, I always wake up in the middle of the night when wearing these... controlling through the phone is a pain, as connecting to them takes a long time, and is unreliable... volume has to be quite high for noise masking to be effective... Overall, I believe these would be very good for some people. For me personally, they are just ok. I tried to return them, but couldn't as BestBuy doesn't accept returns on opened headphones. Reasonable, but keep this in mind when you take the gamble.

Careful before you buy

These do not play music. Good thing I checked before I opened them or I would have been screwed trying to return them. The salesperson should have told me that. Way overpriced for what they do.

Great Concept, Poor Execution

Conceptually, these are a great idea for problem sleepers and especially, for tinnitus sufferers and snoring partners.. . The Positives... Noise Cancellation and Masking Sounds are good... Very soft and comfortable to wear even while sleeping.. functional, attractive charging case... Wonderful gadget... when it worked properly. The Negatives... Quite pricey... very limited, but good, Bose App "Sleep Bud" Sounds... NO "other common, general purpose" uses such as other Apps... such as playing your own playlist, UTube, Net Flix, etc.... or even accessing other competing relaxation and sleep sound Apps (many good ones to choose from). Had many issues with Apple Bluetooth and getting both of the Bose Sleep Ear Buds to link up, sync and work properly, reliably and continuously. After a week, I gave up trying... Contacted Bose Twice by Email... no response... Bottom Line: Why buy very expensive "one purpose" "sleep aid" ear buds item with major operational constraints and limitations (Function, App Choices, etc.) when, alternately, you can simply purchase a good set of noise cancelling "Ear Buds" that can also access the full range of normal "ear bud" functionality and Apps including MANY available Relaxation and Sleep Sound Apps... for about the same amount of money or likely less ??? Great Concept, Poor Execution.

Could be better

I do love the concept of these tiny ear buds. I bought them to try to mask my tinnitus but also to try to drown out my hubbies snoring. I think for starters the buds should be more noise reducing instead of masking and also should be able to wirelessly be able to play music as well...

Not a Compelling Enough Product to Drop $329 CAD + tax on

The quality of the product is excellent, is very comfortable when worn, comes in a slick case that recharges the units. The companion app is very clean and easy to use, pairing the buds effortlessly. However, this platform is severely limited since you only have a choice between a handful of different sound which none of them were that great at all in my opinion. Also, the sounds seemed very poor quality and amateur, which doesn't fit lock step with what you would expect from Bose. It was also very unsettling to get used to having these buds in your ears while you sleep, and for whatever reason I would get up during the 4 days I sued them, and every night I would become disoriented and I would immediately take them off. This happened for four times in a row, and eventually I decided to return them. They just didn't workout for me. Maybe others have not had an issue, maybe I didn't give them enough of a chance. If Bose allowed more sound selection and potentially mixing of the sounds like the RAIN RAIN app, perhaps there would be hope for this product. The sounds in RAIN RAIN for example, are vastly superior as well. Realistically what you could do is download the RAIN RAIN app for free, and then have it playing at a low enough setting to lull you to sleep without anything directly in your ears, which is more natural.

Life Changing

I am sharing a bed with my partner again after several years of sleeping in different rooms. I could not be more happy with the outcome. Not only do I not hear the snoring, I am falling asleep more quickly and staying asleep. The white noise also seems to help with blocking anxious thoughts creeping in, as they tend to do at night. Thank you Bose!

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Gave one Star cause I can't give ZEROOOO.....

Not only it limits the volume level to a certain extent which I can understand, but can only download an "App" that have 5 different sounds and you ONLY can listen to them while sleeping.... Complete waste of Money

  • from Toronto, ON

Useless expensive garbage

Garbage and very expensive and not worth it to buy. To well sleep, I will do more exercise 3 hours before the sleep.

  • from Milton, ON

Works like a charm every time

I do not use them everyday but on days that I have difficulty falling asleep, like after a weekend when staying up late has disturbed my sleep cycle and I need to be alert and fresh next morning or in general if I cant fall asleep for some reason, I reach for them later in the night. 1 star less because of the limited tracks available, although most of them are really good. My favorites are fireplace & swell (beach). Suggestion: if Bose can customize the white noise track for different high frequency levels (by coding to reduce storage requirements ?), that would be great as I also have tinnitus and could then use it on days when its acting up more than usual.

I dont know why it has so much nosie I can hear very clearly

  • from kitchener, ON

Restful sleep

For me, they work extremely well. They also fit perfectly for my ears. This may not be the case for everyone. As for functionality, my set operate and pair seamlessly. Would highly recommend.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Worth it

They do the job of blocking disruptive noise. I had the over ear noise cancelling earphones in the past and was waiting a long time for a product like this. My sleep is amazing now. I am hoping they come up with more sound options. The current ones are great but I'm sure I will want other options as time goes on. I have small ears so it would be nice if the had a little better fit on the wrap arounds to the buds. It took some getting used to get the buds to charge right but once you get it then it's easier. Nothing worse than getting used to peaceful sleep then getting ready for bed and finding they didn't charge. I don't know what I would do without them already.

  • from Ajax, ON

Can't listen to your music

You can't even listen to your music on these things, you have to listen to the stock sounds on the app.

  • from Toronto, ON

Just Awful

Terrible, just terrible

  • from Moncton, NB

Great Product

I have been using these for more than a week now. I was skeptical, but I am very surprised how good and useful they are. They are very comfortablle and stay in ear. The quality of available sounds are great, and there are enough choices to really do what one wants to do. Some sounds block almost all the sounds. Everyone should use them and every doctor should advice of their use, before using any sleeping pills, which are highly addictive, harmful and eventually useless. I have tried other noise masking stuff, this is by far the Best. It is expensive, but worth it. 2 year warranty by Bose is nice.

  • from Moncton, NB

Great product

I'm been using these for the past 10 nights, and I love them. They're very high quality, and effective in helping me sleep more soundly. I'm a light sleeper, and when I'm woken during the night I often find it difficult to get back to sleep. No problem with these buds. They're light and extremely comfortable, especially important to me as I'm a side sleeper. I'm only giving them 4 stars because I would like to see more sounds available. I know Bose is planning to release more in the future, and when they do my rating will likely jump to a 5. Regarding the previous review by "Skeptical", Future Shop should remove this frivolous comment. A so-called review by someone who doesn't even own the product is nonsensical and simpleminded.

  • from Laval, QC

Highly recommanded 5 Stars (could not place more then 4 stars)

I have been using this product for more then a week and now, and I can attest the quality, the effectiveness, the confort of the product. I was sceptical at first but they really work. I am a side sleeper and their is no discomfort wearing them all night. The white noise produce by the feather weight buds will mask the normal disturbing noises.
