Introducing the Ozlo Sleepbuds®

We’ve all tried falling asleep with headphones. It sucks… But not so with Ozlo Sleepbuds®!

Ozlo Sleepbuds® don’t feel like other earbuds. Sleepbuds® stay in place even when you toss and turn. The tiny earbuds, with their comfortable silicone tips and anchor-in-place wings, are designed for all-night comfort, no matter your sleeping position. Sleep on your back, side, or whatever works for you, and Ozlo Sleepbuds® will remain in place and you'll barely notice they're there all night long!

Ozlo Sleepbuds Are Engineered For All-Night Comfort

Comfort is key and attention to detail is our middle name. Ozlo Sleepbuds® don't stick out causing undue pressure on your ear like other earbuds. Our silicone tips are soft yet durable, and engineered to stay secure in your ear all night long. The umbrella-shaped ear tip gently seals off your ear canal, while the pliable wing fits snugly in the ridge of your ear. Think, a hug for your inner ear.

Sleepbuds Specially Designed Comfort Tips

A partner snoring  right next to you. Or the beat dropping from the party upstairs. Unpredictable spikes or changes in sound are one of the biggest disruptors of good sleep.

Ozlo's noise-masking technology combines passive noise-blocking ear tips with optimized noise-masking sounds to block, cover up and replace disruptive sounds that may otherwise wake you with pleasant sounds to keep you asleep.

Ozlo Sleepbuds® in-ear umbrella tip design features passive noise blocking as a first defense against annoying nightly sounds.

Sensors in the Ozlo Sleepbuds® can tell when you fall asleep. From there, we'll help mask the external noises that may wake you.  We've got a variety of science-backed, masking-sounds, designed for all-night relaxation. Pair that with the noise-blocking design of our Ozlo Sleepbuds® and you’ve got yourself a recipe for an undisturbed, sound sleep.

Wanna sleep stress-free? If you're like us (and most people we know), part of what makes it hard to fall asleep at night is an overactive mind. Rehashing scenes from the day, worrying about the latest news stories,  or stressing about how you forgot to call your mother-in-law to wish her happy birthday.

That's why Ozlo Sleepbuds® allow you to stream whatever content puts your mind in its happy place.

Can I really listen to anything?

Yes, anything! Podcasts, audiobooks, music, meditations, ASMR, audio of children reciting the pledge of allegiance on repeat, etc.

If it's streamable, you can stream it Ozlo style to help you fall asleep, and do it comfortably.

In-ear alarms that wake you, not your partner.

Ozlo Sleepbuds® have a built-in personal alarm that gently wakes you from your sound sleep without jarring you or your partner.

Your slumbering partner will thank you. Trust us.

All-Night Battery

Not only that, the case can provide up to 4 full charges for the Sleepbuds®, so you can take it with you anywhere you go, even when you don’t have access to power (camping, anyone?!).

We're passionate about helping people sleep better.

Ozlo is on a mission to clinically enhance sleep without pharmaceutical intervention – and the associated side effects – to improve both wakefulness and the quality of mental and physical well-being. Ozlo is co-founded and led by three former Bose employees who are passionate about developing products to enable better sleep through audio.

If that wasn't enough punch packed into such a tiny, wireless, comfortable earbud designed specifically for sleep - we added even more to the Ozlo Sleepbuds®.

Secure biometric sleepy-time.

That's right! With biometric sensors built into the Sleepbuds®, Ozlo knows when you've fallen asleep.

Utilizing our beta sleep algorithms, Ozlo Sleepbuds® can automatically detect when you fall asleep. With that important info, we can pause and slowly fade out the audio you were streaming to help you fall asleep and then do one of three things:

  • Transition gently to one of our masking audio tracks and play it all night long
  • Transition gently to one of our masking audio tracks and play it for a pre-set amount of time, while enjoying Sleepbuds® passive noise blocking all night long
  • Transition gently to silence, while enjoying Sleepbuds® passive noise blocking all night long

And yes, your data is private. All the biometric sensor data is processed locally and you control who gets to see what.

More than just a pretty charging case

While we can't do anything about the uncomfortable memory foam mattress you might be sleeping on, we do know that noise, light, and temperature of the room you are sleeping in all can impact your sleep quality.

That's why the Ozlo Smart Charging Case includes environmental sensors. While your case charges on your nightstand, sensors detect the noise, light and temperature of your room. We use this information to provide you with a personalized report and feedback the next day in the Ozlo Sleep App.

Designed for privacy

We’re building a secure platform where customers can optionally provide some personal information that allows us to customize and optimize the Ozlo sleep analytics and interventions. Unlike other sleep products, the Ozlo platform is able to work locally from our Sleepbuds® to our smart charging case and the customer’s phone to process and analyze your sleep. So, limited personal information is sent to the cloud for processing.

It all comes together with the Ozlo Sleep™ app
