By Stormy's Grandma
from Brick, NJ
I was unable to sleep through the night for the past 2 years (after undergoing major surgery, then spending 2 weeks at a sub-acute rehabilitation center where they would wake me up for their procedures in the early am hours). Most nights I tossed and turned for hours, maybe getting 3 to 4 hours of sleep, before having to get up and leave to go my office. I received delivery of this unit on July 8, 2013 and plugged-in this device that same night. This Sound Generator helped me immediately and I cannot believe how much better I am sleeping now. Not only am I getting 6 hours of sleep before I wake up to go to the bathroom, I can fall back to sleep immediately for another 1-1/2 to 2 more hours. I now wake up and start each day feeling fully rested not groggy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have one in each bedroom.
from Clovis, New Mexico
We have used these for years. First use was in 1988 when my husband had a stroke and had to rest during the day. Neighbors dogs kept him from resting well and we ordered one of the sleep machines to mask the outside sounds. It worked and we have used them ever since.
I have bought this product many times.

from Staten island NY
I have bought at least 10 sleep sound machines for family and friends who have trouble sleeping. They rave about it and have never felt so well rested. I take every opportunity to inform anyone who can't sleep to purchase this machine.

Perfect match for children's room
from Charleston, SC
I bought two for each of my children's room...they are great and very easy to move and/or travel...some could say they could be louder but for its purposes they work just fine.

amazing!...everything I wanted it to be!
By nova resident
from McLean, VA
I first saw this device in a doctor's office where it was placed in a waiting room to block out conversations between the doctor and patients from the waiting room. Excellent idea! It worked. After many sleepless nights from my wife's cat's interminable meowing at all hours, I remembered this device and thought I'd give it a try for myself. BEST DECISION I'VE EVER MADE!!! It blocks out the cat completely and even other noises like birds chirping outside--perfect for anyone who's a light sleeper. Other people posting who've complained it's too loud need just move it a little further away, no big deal. I was so tired of ear plugs. My quality of life has increased dramatically from this device. Thank you a million times over!!!!!
The best sound machine!!
from South Bend, Indiana
I love this little machine, and I've had one for over 30 years. (Regrettably the last one got left in a hotel in Panama!) Highly effective, and I like that it just does what it does simply and well. No ocean or bird songs or croaking frogs, no computer generated sounds which invariably have a pattern that I tend to focus on.
This is the second one I've bought
By Rich the Beast
from Urbandale Iowa
I use it when I sleep. It drowns out noises that would keep me awake. It makes the same sound as a box fan.This is my second machine. I still use the 1st one but it's about 25 years old and I want to have a replacement for it.
Love our Sleep Sound Generator!
from Duck, NC
The constant sound from our sleep sound generator helps ward off tv or other noises from other rooms. We have bought them for our children and grandchildren and always make it available for our guests. Everyone who uses it loves it! Easy to travel with.
from Kenai, AK
This little gadget is one of the best purchases we've made in a long time. Finally kicked the fan out of the bedroom and replaced it with this sleep sound "generator"......so no more cool air blowing around the room at night and waking up with a stuffy nose.The lower level of sound is sufficient to drown out my snoring husband.Love the small size so we can take it for hotel room stays when traveling.Haven't had it long enough yet to see how durable it is with everyday use, but so far it's a real keeper!
This was the sixth I've purchased.
from Aurora, OH
I purchased the first sound generator more than a decade ago for my daughter who was working nights, had to sleep during the day, and she lived near an airport! It's still running strong. I gave one as a baby gift to my niece. They love it! My dog sleeps with one over his crate to help drown out thunderstorms. Generally, I don't take the time to write reviews, but this is a product I wholeheartedly endorse!!!
