Sound selection and customization is poor

I find that almost all of the sounds available for sleepbuds have a high frequency component. I find it jarring and wish there were an equalizer. For example, the sounds you can play via mynoise.net allow you to adjust high frequencies out almost completely.

 

In addition, some of the sounds included with sleepbuds are just poor quality. For example, the fan noise has a periodicity to it that is unwelcome, and an additional "tinking" noise every so often that's clearly audible at loud volumes. These are exactly the kinds of anomalies that a light sleeper does NOT want. The mind focuses on them and interrupts relaxation.

 

Bose really needs to provide better quality sounds and allow the sounds to be customized with an equalizer. In fact, I really don't understand why they don't include functionality for treating sleepbuds just like an in-ear earphone. Then I could just play my favorite mynoise sound via their app, and use their equalizer the way I like.

Tranquility is the only one sound that work for me.
It's a shame that are no more sounds like that, especially a masking one.
