Great for a sleep aid for infants and kids!
We started using this white noise machine when are son was 5 months old and now that he is almost 2 we still turn it on every night for him :) It is a great tool to help little ones sleep! Check out the video review that I've uploaded here to listen to the different options on this sound machine!
Good for the price!
My husband and I have had a digital alarm clock that includes several different nature sounds. We listen to the babbling brook on it for years about every night. However, it only stayed on for an hour and then automatically turns itself off. So we wanted to find a sound machine that would play continuously throughout the night, and I found this portable HoMedics Soundspa Machine at Walmart.com. It's reasonable price and stays on for as long as desired. It has a timer option if you prefer but I'll probably never use that part of it. It makes different sounds, rain, thunder, ocean waves, a brook, and summer night. The summer night is the one I normally keep it on since it sounds similar to our old alarm clock with the babbling brook. The sound quality on this new portable sound machine doesn't seem to have as clear a sound as compared to my old one, but at least it plays continuously through the night as wanted. It's also nice that it's portable and I can take it with me on trips.
My other white noise machine broke and I found that I was unable to sleep without some sort of sound in the room. I downloaded a few free apps on my phone, but they had a very electronic sound that did not help me sleep; and it obviously ran the battery down quickly. I bought two of these, one for myself and the other for a friend. We both love it! There's 6 different sounds to choose from, though I just keep mine on white noise. They all sound realistic too, not electronic like the phone apps. You are able to adjust the volume and it can get pretty loud, if that's something you'd need. There are also timers, but I haven't used those; I leave mine on the entire night. There's a nice feature in that it can be plugged in or run on batteries, so it's easy to take with you wherever you need it. Very light and small, so it doesn't take up much room and isn't an eyesore. Overall, great product and I would definitely buy again!
Good price, just OK, audio loops could be better
Bought this to drown out the noise coming from the ceiling fan vibration coming from the apartment below, while I sleep. Out of the 6 sounds, I think the rain and white noise were the best. The ocean, thunder, and crickets were too variable to consistently cover up the sound I was trying to mask. The brook was OK but I preferred the rain over it. The rain was alright but it was more like outside rain rather than rain on your roof. White noise sounds they way I'd expect. Volume jumps from soft to much louder very quickly, but should be alright for most people. Timer function is nice. The LED lights are bright, but you can cover it up with anything and tape. There are 3 main issues for me, but might not be for others. 1) The audio is kind of static-y, like a cheap speaker or distant radio station. 2) The loops are super short. I counted 2-3 seconds for the white noise, and 5-6 seconds for the rain. 3) Some of the loops have weird clicking or popping sounds, if you listen closely enough. These issues do not make the device unusable, but they make me start paying attention to the device, rather than treating the device as background noise. All-in-all, low price, it somewhat fulfills its purpose, but there's room for improvement. I'm thinking of trying a mechanical white noise machine to compare. But those have moving parts that can wear out and start rattling or whining.
I just bought this yesterday and was really excited about using it. I usually have a really loud fan that blocks out other noise in my apartment complex and puts me to sleep. I am going out of the country for 2 weeks and since I can't take my fan I liked the fact that this product was portable and battery operated. I thought I would test it out and used it while I was studying last night. First off the sound quality is not the best--I need my white noise to be loud, but the higher you turn the volume up the more the speakers crackle, so I had to keep the volume at a medium level. Then about an hour or so of use it made this god awful high pitched screaming noise--like electronic interference. It did this twice in a span of 5 minutes when on the ocean sound. I switched it to the rain sound and had no more issues until I went to bed--I was jarred awake at midnight from high pitched interference. Wow, so much for a good nights sleep!!
