They look like headphones. They feel like headphones. But headphones they are not.
Bose noise-masking sleepbuds are designed for the one thing most of us don’t get enough of: sleep.
We’ve all been there. Tossing and turning in the middle of the night thanks to noisy neighbours, traffic or snoring. It’s the worst. With that in mind, Bose tackled the issue head on.
Designed for comfort, these tiny, truly wireless sleepbuds deliver engineered sounds that mask unwanted noise and lull you to sleep. So you can wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day.
They don’t stream music or have acoustic noise cancellation. Instead, they use pre-loaded, soothing masking sounds to cover up unwanted night-time noises so you can get to sleep and stay asleep. The game has changed.
A close shave
Braun claims its Series 9 shaver is the world’s most efficient and comfortable shaver. That’s no small feat but Braun reckons this thing is the bee’s knees. And once you see what it can do, it’s fairly easy to see why.
The Series 9 can be used dry, or with water, foam or gel for a comfortable and refreshing shave without compromise.
For total control and finishing touches, a built-in precision trimmer slides out the back of the shaver for easier and more accurate sideburn shaping.
When you’re finished, its intuitive LED interface will inform you on the battery status, check your shaver heads performance and remind you to clean your shaver with the Clean & Charge station.
All Braun shavers are waterproof up to 5 metres, so you can shave under the shower and rinse them under running water.
