It’s been a pretty stressful time, so we’re not surprised if you haven’t been sleeping well. If you’ve tried it all — weighted blankets, melatonin supplements, white noise machines — and are still struggling, it might be time to pull out the big guns. Actually, the small ones: Bose Sleepbuds II, a bedtime companion designed to make nodding off a breeze.
Bose has long been a master of premium sound, delivering fantastic audio with its speakers and headphones. A few years ago the company turned its attention to helping folks sleep better, and with the second iteration of its Sleepbuds really nailed it. Now you can snag yourself a pair of Sleepbuds II for under $200 at Amazon — saving yourself $50.
How do the Sleepbuds II work? Well, they’re not really headphones; you can’t play your favorite tunes or podcasts on them. Instead, what you get is a constant stream of soothing sounds that will relax you and mask any outside noise that might trouble you. The content is streamed straight from the Bose Sleep app, and the buds have 10 hours of battery life, so they’ll take you through you a full night’s rest.
Reviews for the second edition of these magical sleep aids are positive, with over 2,800 five-star ratings. Shoppers love the “awesome” noise cancellation, even though one reviewer "was hesitant at first because of the inability to choose my own music. But there is a wide variety of sounds to choose from, and the sound is amazing!"
The buds have helped a lot of people who have struggled with snoring partners, like the spouse of this self-professed "noisy sleeper" who carries on all night "snoring, mumbling, farting, coughing, etc. My wife sleeps right through it all. Happy wife, happy life."
It's amazing what the Sleepbuds II can help you sleep through, as one customer attests, after having stayed with their sister and her newborn: "...She was so apologetic the next morning and I'm just thinking — literally a screaming child? I didn't hear that?" They also say these ’buds "will change your life."
We agree that a good restorative night's sleep is an absolute game changer. You can get that regularly — and save 50 bucks — with this sale on Bose Sleepbuds II. Don't miss it!

On accepting responsibility for the calamitous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in April 1961, John Kennedy noted that “Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan.” For example, Britain’s exit from the European Union has reduced trade and GDP, but it is not always immediately obvious where and how, not least when the departure coincided with a pandemic. It is the clarity between cause and effect – the former being Friday’s mini-budget and the latter the collapse in sterling, rise in future interest rates and severe damage to the UK’s economic standing – that is unusual and particularly dangerous for the government.
