Our Story

Driven by sleep.

Ozlo is on a mission to clinically enhance rest 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.

Ozlo is developing and manufacturing an ecosystem of best-in-class sleep products, including the Ozlo Sleepbuds® that leverage certain acquired and licensed proprietary sleep-related technology from Bose Corporation. 

We've gathered some of the world's best mechanical, electrical, firmware, manufacturing, audio, design and software engineers, all passionate about good sleep. We are all actively working on the products to help everyone sleep just a little better (and we hope, change the world).

The Ozlo Sleepbuds®: The next-gen Sleepbuds® are a tiny, wireless, comfortable in-ear headphone designed specifically for the best sleep of your life. They have launched on Kickstarter, and we are excited for everyone to see just how much innovation the team has meticulously and lovingly built into the Ozlo Sleepbuds®.
