After announcing the launch of their Sleepbuds back in June, it appears the tiny devices which will help you sleep by cancelling out ambient noise around you are going on-sale on the 10th of September for $379.

The Bose noise-masking sleepbuds were launched earlier this year in an IndieGoGo campaign, and are designed not to stream music but instead play soothing masking sounds that cover up the sounds around you so you can get to, and stay asleep.

The buds pair with the Bose Sleep app for both Android and iOS, from which you select which of the 10 pre-loaded soothing sounds you want to listen to, as well as set any alarms you want and the volume level.

The Bose sleepbuds are designed for comfort, with three sizes of ‘StayHear+ Sleep tips’ used to keep the buds securely, and comfortably in your ears whether you’re a side sleepers or toss-and-turn while you sleep. The buds come in a handy storage case which also provides an additional full charge when not in use, though the batteries in the buds last up to 16 hours of use off one charge.

The Bose noise-masking sleepbuds will be available from both Harvey Norman and JB HiFi with a bonus Natural Silk Sleep Mask on offer for those who pre-order before September 10th – or you can head over to the Bose Australia website.

My partner is a shift worker. I bought these for her from America a few months ago and did a shipping redirect to get them here in Aus.
The cost and time was absolutely worth it because these things are incredible. She says she’s never slept so well before / after night shift.
Highly recommended. Great product, great design.


I’ve been interested in a device such as these for so long. I was even tempted to purchase the kokoon headphones based on what they offered, pending reading a few reviews post-release. However, based on what I’ve read, they did not live up to the hype.


There is no way I’m going to spend $380 on a device that in its current state only really does one function, that unfortunately, cannot play music or the like, which means a pair of 5c earplugs can do just as well (if not better).


EDIT: I just realised that the Kokoon headphones have yet to be released en masse. There’s still hope. However, even they are less (only just) than the Bose headphones. Fingers crossed they work a treat!
