Among all the watches and wearables that gained sleep tracking technology, earphones now also joined the party in tracking your health and sleep quality. The NightBuds, made by Kokoon Technology pack all the latest tech to help you drift asleep and coach you with personal tips to enhance your sleep quality.
What are the NightBuds?
The NightBuds are tiny, Bluetooth enabled headphones that work together with an app on your phone to look after your sleep. Through specially prepared, binaural audio scenes (such as this one) you’re shut off from the outside world, tinnitus or your wandering mind, to fall asleep faster.
The sensing technology will then fade out the audio as soon as you’re asleep and shift to some coloured audio, such as white noise to help block disturbances. All of this can be set up in the Kokoon app for iOS or Android.
Based on how well you’re sleeping the virtual sleeping coach will make the suggestions that are best for your own tracked profile, so that you’ll get a tight deep sleep everytime you use the NightBuds.
Next to the preconfigured scenes and noise, you can also choose to listen to your music or audiobooks, which will also be automatically paused as soon as you fall asleep.
The earbuds themselves are thin, soft and lightweight, so they’ll not annoy you when having them in and trying to fall asleep. Besides the sleep tracking technology, you can use the NightBuds to make phone calls as well and use them during daytime to listen to your music on Spotify or any other streaming provider.

NightBuds vs. Amazfit Zenbuds vs. Bose Sleepbuds
First of all the NightBuds are the thinnest earphones around. Their low footprint makes it easier to have them in while sleeping (especially when you’re annoyed by things sticking in your ear canals when trying to sleep).
Secondly, the NightBuds are the only earphones to have a sleepcoach that can help make the best suggestions for your sleep.
Lastly, the NightBuds can be used as a regular set of comfortable in-ear phones, so you can get a bit more value out of them besides sleeping.
