Risk free trial - going to return here's why
Sleep Buds II eagerly anticipated, reality very disappointed. I have had my Sleep Buds for three weeks.
My first disappointment was the lack of a good low frequency irregular sound. A sound that masks low frequency snoring and the neighbours stereo through the wall thumping base. A little hard to describe but by irregular I mean the opposite of white noise - something like the drone combined with the other noise from an oscillating pedestal stand room fan. In the Bose library the closest I can find is Seaboard. White noise to me is just an uncomfortable sound pressure.
Next - on two occasions (out of my total of maybe 8-10 uses) needed to use the buds only to find the app "Unable to find right bub". Get up, out of bed, fiddle around. Before bed buds were showing full charge in the base (not pulsating) and base was showing it had charge remaining as well. On the first occasion could not make the right bud connect. On the second occasion putting the buds back in the base and leaving them there for maybe 10 minutes (I'm now wide awake btw..) the app was able to find the right bud. The idea here is that the buds will work reliably when I need them to - I can't count on that.
Lastly - the other night was using the buds. Awakened and the sounds were unbalanced, out of sync by so much that Seaboard was "panning left to right" (Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon) - enough to make one dizzy. Got up, used the app to select another sound, then reselect Seaboard, again now wide awake, got left and right back balanced/synced.
Again, very disappointed.
