Bose Sleepbuds Disappoint, But Ozlo Promises Improvement
Heartland Magazine – In a highly anticipated release, Bose unveiled its Sleepbuds in 2018, offering the promise of a good night’s sleep to restless individuals. However, the lack of streaming capabilities left many disappointed. The compromise for the small size of the Sleepbuds meant there was no room for a Bluetooth radio, rendering them unable to stream audio.
Following the disappointment, there is a new ray of hope for sleep-deprived individuals. Ozlo, a company founded by former Bose employees, has acquired the intellectual property (IP) for the Sleepbuds and is set to release an improved version. The new and enhanced Sleepbuds will not only include streaming capabilities but will also have sleep tracking features.
One of the notable features of the new Sleepbuds will be the inclusion of onboard sensors. These sensors will be able to detect motion and respiratory patterns, providing insightful data to users. However, it should be noted that these Sleepbuds will not be able to detect pulse.
Moreover, the charging case that accompanies the Sleepbuds will act as more than just a power source. It will incorporate sensors for light and temperature, allowing users to sync their sleep patterns with environmental data. This unique feature aims to offer an even more personalized and optimal sleep experience.
While the new Sleepbuds will still provide pre-loaded sounds, users will only have access to one sound at a time. This limitation may disappoint some who enjoyed the variety available with the previous version. However, it is a small compromise considering the overall enhancements being introduced.
The absence of active noise canceling may be a setback for some potential buyers. However, the Sleepbuds will still utilize passive canceling and sound masking techniques, which have proven effective in minimizing external noises and disturbances during sleep.
The eagerly awaited Ozlo Sleepbuds will be available for pre-order on Kickstarter for $249. It is important to note that there will be a $50 price increase at launch, so early adopters are urged to take advantage of the pre-order option.
With the promise of improved streaming capabilities, sleep tracking features, and insightful data, the Ozlo Sleepbuds appear to be a more comprehensive solution for those seeking a peaceful and restful night’s sleep.
