These New Wireless Earphones Promise To Drown Out The Sound Of Your Snoring Partner
For many of us struggling to sleep through the night is just a part of life. Traffic, construction, dogs, aeroplanes... just a few of the things that might interrupt a sound nights' sleep and keep you staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night.
And for those of us who sleep with a partner who snores, we know that this can be the most annoying sound of all when it comes to being kept awake.
Which is why we couldn't be more delighted to hear about a new product which promises to drown out noise including the heavy breathing of a snoring other half.
The wireless "sleepbuds" are tiny mechanisms that aim to block, cover and replace even the most annoying and loud sounds. And while they're not cheap, coming in at £229.95, even just two years worth of use (for which they are under warranty) equates to 32p a night for a sound sleep.
The tiny wireless device works at a frequency that cleverly mirror the frequencies of snoring, neighbours, traffic and other sounds, hiding them beneath relaxing sounds. However, they don't completely block out everything, so if an alarm goes off or someone tries to get your attention, you'll be able to hear it.
While noise-cancelling headphones are great for some situations, they're uncomfortable to wear at night. The sleepbuds have "sleep tracks" pre-loaded for the nighttime hours and come in three sizes that sit in the inner curvature of the ear. That means that if you sleep naturally on your side, you can choose the most comfortable size for you and not wake up with painful ears.
The Systems engineer for Bose sleepbuds, Daniel Lee, said that "it's more than ambient sound or white noise. You cn't achieve it by simply turning up the volume on calming songs." he added, "At night, you're trying to shut down completely, and the world is naturally more quiet - and when it's quiet, even the slightest sound seems loud."
If you're interested in purchasing the Bose sleepbuds and having a more chill, quiet nights' sleep, you can preorder them here for £229.95 - they ship on the 21st of September, so you'll have to wait until then, but if it's something you struggle with, peace and quiet is likely priceless.
