Return of the nap

With coronavirus cases on the up, large parts of the world periodically catching fire, Liverpool reigning Premier League champions, and nobody in a position of authority able to organise a booze-up in a brewery, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if you were having trouble sleeping at the moment. Bose’s redesigned Sleepbuds II (£230) might have an IPX4 rating and come with a 30-hour charging case, but the only music they’ll play is designed to help you drop off. With noise-masking tech and over 35 specially composed tracks that mirror the frequencies of common slumber disruptors, the tiny buds also have a special anti-friction coating to stop them making a racket when they come into contact with your pillow. Throw in 10 hours of snoozy sounds from each charge and they’ll last for way longer than just 40 winks.
