Whether you frequently find yourself trying to get some shut-eye between flights or you just live in a loud part of the city, deep sleep can be a hard thing to achieve. Drowning out some of the distracting noise around you, however, can go a long way toward getting some rest. And that’s exactly the idea behind Bose’s Noise-Masking Sleepbuds.
Though they look like your average wireless earbuds, these tech accessories aren’t intended for listening to music throughout your day. Rather, they’re designed to be comfortable enough to wear in your ears while you slumber, even if you are a side-sleeper. More than that, they utilize an experimental technique called noise-masking – a variety of soundscapes (available on the included app) that are optimally designed to help hide background noises and allow you to get better more-restful sleep. And better sleep, in turn, means better health. When they are finally ready to go to market, these high-tech sleep-aids will retail for $249.
