Bose Announces Sleepbuds For People Who Can’t Fall Asleep

Bose is trying to make it easier for people with sleep difficulties with their newest offering, the Bose Sleepbuds. They are designed to work like modern ear plugs, blocking out as much sound as possible while maintaining comfortability and have a few tricks to hopefully make catching some ZZZ’s easier.

Unlike traditional ear plugs, the Sleepbuds can play soothing noises in two different styles; one for drowning out noises, and another for relaxation. These sounds are also built-in, so you don’t need to worry about streaming from your phone all night. There’s even an alarm feature to wake you up without disturbing your partner, or the vagabond that snuck into your bed.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to add other audio, so you’re stuck with the built-in sounds. And despite Bose being known for their noise-cancelling features in the headphones, it seems the Sleepbuds don’t include this feature at all, most likely due to size constraints.

Bose is selling the Sleepbuds though Indiegogo, and a pair will set you back $175 and should ship in February 2018.

Cotodama Is A Speaker That Can Display Song Lyrics

Imagine if your speaker could display the lyrics for your favorite playlist. Okay, it’s an odd thought, but once you see the way the Cotodama Speaker shows lyrics through its clear display, you’ll wish you could add it to your setup.

The Cotodama is a speaker that uses dual 20W speakers as well as passive radiators to produce a high-quality sound. But, the main feature is its 22-inch transparent LCD display which will show lyrics to songs that it obtains through SyncPower, which has a database of over 2 million song lyrics.

Unfortunately, if a song doesn’t have lyrics on this service, than there’s no way to add them. But something tells me the price is a bigger holdback, as each hand crafted unit will set you back $4500.

So, as cool as it looks, you might have to settle for a Bose speaker.

Hit the jump to see a video of the Cotodama in action.

CozyPhones Have Flat Speakers So You Can Use Them When Laying in Bed

Have you ever tried popping in some headphones to listen to some music or a podcast when laying in bed? If so, you may have realized how super uncomfortable it is. Regardless of what type of headphones you use, the hard plastic housing gets jammed into your ear canal making them painful to wear.

Well, one company is trying to change that with headphones that have super thin speakers held in place by a mesh headband. The mesh ensure that no plastic parts will try and impale you and the headband design keeps the headphones in place, even when you’re tossing and turning.

Sometimes I just like to shut my eyes and listen to a podcast without using giant studio monitors. Do they look cool? No. Do they have the best sound? Probably not. But these fit a very specific purpose, and at $22, you can’t really go wrong. They’re like the Crocs of headphones.

Finally, I can fall asleep listening to Slayer.

Thermaltake Shock One Gaming Headset Reviewed. Verdict: Good All Round Sound and Good Directionality

In the highly competitive market of computer gaming headsets, a few companies such as Logitech, Razer, and Steelseries have predominantly dominated in the last few years. Recently, a few unexpected manufacturers such as Corsair and Coolermaster have introduced their own headset lines hoping to invade this tightly knit stalemate. Thermaltake also introduced their eSports lineup of gaming accessories recently hoping to make an impact in this market, and leading the charge is their flagship gaming headset eSports Shock One.

The eSports Shock One offers great sound quality after the initial break-in, and brings a refreshing sense of balance and fullness to the sound compared to the competing headset from Corsair. With the DTS Surround Sensation certification, the Shock One headset brings great treble and bass with great dimensionality, which shows from its impressive performance in gaming, movies and music. Although it did not offer the best experience out of the box, with the occasional bit-rate issues, acquired comfort, and the acoustically unsound pleather pads, the Shock One brings a nice package overall for Thermaltake’s first step in the headset market. In all, the Shock One shows everything a gaming headset should be and brings some stiff competition to the $100 range. In-depth review available at Everything USB.
