Although they are best known for their line of incredible noise-cancelling headphones, audio mega brand Bose has just released a pair buds designed to help you sleep more soundly and feel more rested upon waking. Dubbed the Sleepbuds, these small noise-masking ear plugs can drown out city and suburb noises including honking cars, loud music, or a snoring partner next to you. Rather than play music, the Sleepbuds will play any one of many nature and ambient sounds such as a running stream, ocean waves or brown noises designed to mask normal sound disturbances. Equipped with a 16 hour battery life and designed to fit securely in your ear throughout the whole night, these are perfect for light sleepers looking for a novel way of reducing mid sleep disturbances. Available now from Bose.

SD to Lightning Adapter
One of the best pieces of travel gear for any photographer out there is a device which lets you import photos and videos from any SD card directly onto your phone. Although the concept is simple, many don’t think about how convenient it is to own. While some cameras these days do have the ability to wirelessly import photos to your mobile devices, most don’t, and even when they do the process can be a little counterintuitive, and doesn’t compare to the peace of mind and quality of image that comes with importing the file directly to your phone. The plug and play nature of the process is straightforward and easy. Simply plug in the adapter to your iPhone and an import screen will automatically pop up. It’s that easy. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to have the highest quality images of a DSLR combined with the shareability of a mobile device, and it’s great for travel when you might not have a full computer with you to import the files. Although even for everyday use sometimes it’s just better to cut out the middle man. You can get it directly from Apple for around $30, but we recommend getting a third party adapter. They’re the same hardware, but for sometimes only a third of the price, like the one from Walmart available now for just under $10.
