Kokoon Launches NightBuds Smart Earbuds on Kickstarter

Kokoon, a sleep technology company, today launched their newest product in its sleep audio range, NightBuds, on Kickstarter. Following up from Kokoon’s sleep headphones launched in 2015, NightBuds, at just 5.4mm thickness are the smallest in-ear sleep audio product currently available.

The smart earbuds are tiny, sleep sensing headphones that work with an app to intelligently look after sleep. Developed with staff at Europe’s largest sleep laboratory, NightBuds automatically adapt audio as the wearer falls asleep then provide insights and coaching specific to them, to improve their sleep.

NightBud’s Features:

With heighten anxiety and stress due to the pandemic, Nightbuds help consumers escape stress, an active mind, snoring, noisy neighbors and find the perfect, peaceful sanctuary to enjoy better sleep & relaxation. Audio is one of the most effective natural ways to help the mind disconnect and wind down.

NightBuds enable users to listen to their own audio (audiobooks, podcasts, music) in a smarter manner automatically fading out as they fall asleep and bookmarking where they left off enabling them to pick back up in the right place the next day.

NightBuds utilize Kokoon’s Sleep Coaching Technology and monitor sleep (via PPG & accelerometers) to provide personalized insights and recommendations specific to the user, to improve their sleep. Applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), widely recognized as the most effective treatment to aid sleep2 users have access to AI coaching that is personalized to them based on their sleep.

Within the app users can “create their own Kokoon”, an immersive 4D binaural soundstage through which listeners can experience incredible relaxing audio escapes such as the “Misty Mountain Hideaway”. From within this space they can enjoy their own audio to discover a whole new experience.

For the last 7 years Kokoon has been developing headphones that are comfortable for use in bed. NightBuds are designed to be worn through the night in all positions including side sleeping. The soft, ergonomic buds are incredibly thin; just 5.4mm thick which is over 391% thinner than the average Bluetooth earbud3 . This thin size has been enabled by Kokoon’s patent pending 5 point anchor system which locates electronics behind the head.

Keeping sleep disturbance free is key to a good night’s sleep. NightBuds block out snoring or noisy neighbours with noise isolation and dynamic noise masking. Also useable as regular Bluetooth 4.0 headphones, NightBuds enable hands free calls and feature crystal clear acoustics courtesy of NightBuds premium balance armature drivers.

Nightbuds are now available for pre-order on Kickstarter for $159/£122 (Limited number available at $129/£99), RRP $279/£219. The Kickstarter page can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kokoon/nightbuds-smart-earbuds-for-better-sleep-and-relaxation.
