Re: Ability to add your own sound files?

OK Bose...you need to get off the pot and either make great sleep sounds, I’m looking for a thunderstorm with wind and rain or open up the app to allow other sounds to be used. You must think we’re morons if you think all we can get is through your app. Open up the firmware to allow these to be used as bonafide earbuds. They are a great product but so limited in what we can listen to.

Re: Ability to add your own sound files?

There is a purring cat noise on the app MyNoise and they have an equalizer to further customize the noises to mask specific tones heard in my tinnitus.  I would really appreciate being able to use this track on my sleep buds. https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/catPurrNoiseGenerator.php?l=29343934292929292929&n=Default

Re: Ability to add your own sound files?

Well here it is, April 2019. Is there still any hope we'll get some additional masking sounds - that aren't obvious 10 second loops? Or has Bose ended work on this product?

I can only use Warm Static. Some alternatives would be nice.

Hi Jimh12345, 

 

Thanks for reaching out!

 

As explained previously in this thread, we are working on new sounds that will be added to the Bose sleep App, the feature request for personal sounds has been passed on. We have not heard anything yet, we will update this post as soon as we know more. 

 

Have a great day. 

 

Kind Regards,

Re: Ability to add your own sound files?

Hi Krystian,

 

Welcome to the Bose Community Forums! 

 

Our Noise-Masking Sleepbuds were engineered specifically to solve the problem of unwanted noise in the bedroom. In order to achieve a form factor small enough to be comfortable for sleeping and fit a battery that can support sound playback for an entire night, we made the conscious design decision to not stream audio constantly throughout the night, meaning adding your own sound files is not supported. Instead, we store the sound files on each Sleepbud and play them back locally, dramatically extending the audio playback time achievable in our breakthrough form factor.

 

If you have any suggestions on future masking sounds for our Sleepbuds we'd love to hear your suggestions, and relay them back to our development teams.

 

Kindest,

Andy B

Re: Ability to add your own sound files?

I don't care so much about the ability to upload my own sounds... just more options please.

 

This sound problem really reduces my rating of the product.
