Using phone-free mode

Enabling phone-free mode in the Bose Sleep app lets you use your sleepbuds™ with a limited set of features while your mobile device is off or in another room.

You may want to use this feature if:

  • You prefer sleeping without electronics nearby
  • You don’t need to set a wake-up alarm or hear notifications during the night

Because the sleepbuds™ are disconnected from your device, they can’t play alarms or receive notifications when phone-free mode is enabled.

When you enable phone-free mode, the sleepbuds™ begin playing a selected masking sound as soon as you remove them from the charging case. They continue to play that sound until your sleep timer settings expire or you return them to the case.

To enable phone-free mode:

Connect the sleepbuds™ to the Bose Sleep app

Select Settings in the upper right-hand corner

Smartphone screen highlighting the Settings control

Below OPTIONS, select Phone-Free Mode
