SNOOZ®

Spread The Good Snooze

Eli Lazar and Matt Snyder were at a small-town wedding in Illinois when they realized their families shared a strategy for helping their children sleep. They would position a fan to point towards a wall, and the ambient sound would mask sudden noises that may have woken their children otherwise. Eli, an engineer, couldn’t get over the product-use mismatch, especially during cold Chicago winters. Disappointed with electronic noise machines available on the market, Matt and Eli set out to build something better.

Spread The Good Snooze

Eli Lazar and Matt Snyder were at a small-town wedding in Illinois when they realized their families shared a strategy for helping their children sleep. They would position a fan to point towards a wall, and the ambient sound would mask sudden noises that may have woken their children otherwise. Eli, an engineer, couldn’t get over the product-use mismatch, especially during cold Chicago winters. Disappointed with electronic noise machines available on the market, Matt and Eli set out to build something better.

After years of tinkering, using Eli's background in fluid dynamics to run computer simulations, Matt and Eli developed their solution: a proprietary fan impeller and acoustic chamber that combine to create SNOOZ’s signature fan sound. When their family and friends refused to return their test units, they knew they were onto something.
