@shirlema I got these last time and I really didn’t notice any looping when I was going through all the sounds - I’m sure the lullaby songs on it would be noticeable when they restart but the fan sounds seemed fine. Caveat: I haven’t used one for the night - each of my kids got one. My younger switched from using Alexa’s white noise to this one so that’s something. I’d go check right now but they each took theirs to camp this week!
@kytyn@shirlema I’m trying out the one I just got and I don’t notice the looping either. It might be different lying in bed with nothing else going on, but so far the “original mix white noise” sounds seamless to me!
@eatpaste thanks, I still bought them just because I thought they’d sell out. I literally use 3 different white noise machines at night so I can get enough surround sound and not have the looping… my brain can hear it immediately
@Kyeh@kytyn thanks. I got them either way. I currently use 3 at night just because the overlap will usuallymean I don’t hear the loops but I started to hear them extremely clearly the last few nights. Will either rotate out or end up with 5 all on low and slightly different noises
Man that side-deal description knows me so well, you’re goddamn right I’m angry about microfiber.
But it’s not actually microfiber that’s the problem - you wanna sell microfiber shit that’s fine.
The problem is every microfiber product tries to hide what it is. “Spirit Linen Luxurious Satin Sheet Set”. Sure, Satin is technically a weave, but the expectation if you just say satin is that it’s cotton or silk. Linen is a fucking fabric, made of flax, if you put it in your brand name then you should be selling linen. I could just about forgive “linens” as a bullshit term for bed sheets, but not linen. Microfiber is not fucking luxurious.
So word by word:
Spirit: the sheets are probably not actually haunted, fuck you (though perhaps the only thing they’re good for is cutting a hole in and dressing up as a ghost).
Linen: no, fuck you.
Luxurious: no, fuck you.
Satin: technically, but misleading, fuck you.
Sheet: I guess.
Set: Barely, and the fitted sheet doesn’t even mention its depth which suggests, given the level of deception demonstrated, probably only deep enough to fit over a piece of plywood, not a mattress.
Why not just title it “Cheap Microfiber Sheet Set”, capture the click-throughs that are actually interested, and save everyone else the time.
@PhysAssist At the top of the main page for this product is a link to the side-deal, which is the item that’s at least 66% lies. (The comment is here rather than there because A. I didn’t see a link to a comment section for that product, and B. the lie that annoyed me is on the page for this product anyway.)
Hey RB, no worries, I figured that out, but thought I’d troll you a little anyway- and for what it’s worth, I agree wholeheartedly re: the falsehoods used indiscriminately to market textiles containing microfibers, which are not very good for the environment.
Can it run off battery power? The pics don’t include a cord, but the description doesn’t mention cordless. It says travel, but we travel to our cabin in The Upper Peninsula, and it’s very rustic, with no power. Nature is awesome, but my husband’s snoring is not.
@PhysAssist@punkynpye The adapter is putting out 5V/1A, so it would be possible to run it from a power bank if it used a standard USB cable. It does not. If you can find an adapter cable, it ought to work. Rotsa ruck with that.
@punkynpye They don’t have a battery and they don’t even use a normal mini-usb plug to USB so you’d need a battery pack that has a normal wall outlet to use.
We have a LectroFan mini for traveling - it’s has a rechargeable mini-usb so you’d still need to plug it in daily - I’m sure there are some others out there that use replaceable batteries. I also use SleepPhones - soft speakers in a headband to sleep in (every night, not just when traveling!)
chant@kytyn @punkynpye I have tinnitus, so most white noise generators [and higher [pitched noises in general] drive me spare. When I worked nights, I started using the “Chant” CD set on repeat, but now we have it on a memory card as MP3 files, and we play it through an MP3 player on infinite repeat of all the tracks. For whatever reason, the rhythmic, but seemingly random variation of the Gregorian Monks’ deeper voices chanting in Latin don’t stimulate my tinnitus like white noise does. YMMV.
I actually got one of these in my not-yet-posted Irk. Here’s what it says in the user manual:
(I haven’t tried it yet so can’t offer any other info about it. Maybe I’ll plug it in now and see how it sounds.)
