@eeterrific@Limewater I came here to say just that. I actually like brown noise on these machines better than white noise. Also it doesn’t always drwon out cat noise, neighbor dog noise, 6am lawnmower noise, overhead helicopter headed to the nearby hospital noice and especially the gun fire noise we have had in our parking lot twice in the last three ish months.
I love white noise machines, but need one that will run the whole night through. Therefore I just use my phone. Tell the white noise to shut off 5 minutes before my alarm each morning. Then if I wake up and still hear white noise I know I’m good to keep sleeping.
I bought this for $2.001 more last summer. The are fine although they don’t fill the room in quite the same way as a bigger one. I supposed you could do it in stereo putting one on each side of you. Most sounds don’t “cycle” in a noticeable way. They have different kinds of “white” noise which really do sound different. They have are some stupid sounds on there too but enough decent one likely you’d find one you liked.
“Comforting Ambient Lights: Choose from 6 different ambient nightlight colors with adjust brightness levels to create the best sleeping environment.
Adjustable Volume & Timer: Volume levels can reach as low or as high as needed to effectively block out unwanted noises. The auto-off timer gives you the ability to automatically turn off the device after 15, 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.”
It really has a ton of decent sounds on here. I got a few of these in an irk a while back and stuck them all around the house. I wouldn’t say it’s very portable since it has to be plugged in. But it’s small enough you could take it on a trip and it doesn’t take up a lot of space, so I guess that’s what they mean by “portable”
8 white noise sounds:
TV white noise
Radio white noise
Original mix white noise
Torrential pink noise
Ambient pink noise
Soothing brown noise
8 fan sounds:
10 natural sounds and 4 lullabies:
Seagulls and ocean wave
Forest bird song
Twinkle twinkle little star
Hush little baby
I got one of these last time, quite decent. Build quality seems good, sound quality is very good for something this size. White noise actually sounds like white noise and not just pure awfulness, I’m partial to #7 (although apparently it’s actually brown noise? IDK).
Unfortunately, the rain/storm sounds are more just rushing water sounds. I got it for a rain setting, but white noise #7 is a bearable substitute lol.
Isn’t it interesting that the bedside tables shown have nothing except the product on them? My own has an Echo Show 8, a BiPAP, an Echo gen 2, a wireless charger, various OTC Med bottles, a pen/pencil holder, a pulse oximeter, an open bottle of ginger beer, a box with glucose test strips, a salt shaker, and various papers.
I’ve just recently learned how useful brown noise is for falling asleep… especially with neighbors like mine, who are (kinda) loud. I typically use a noise app on my phone, but having a dedicated device probably wouldn’t be a bad idea.
