In our experience the white noise machines made by Marpac and Sound Oasis tend to be best in quality of construction, tone and effectiveness. Our top model, the Dohm, generates a simple fan or wind-like sound that has proven to aid sleeping without the problem of blowing the air around. Have you ever experienced the effect of falling asleep to a soft mechanical hum such as that produced by a fan or air conditioner running in the background? Have you witnessed how babies tend to fall asleep better with a soft mechanical noise in their environment? If you have, then that serves as confirmation that the Dohm is probably your best choice in a noise making device. You are experiencing the effect of a soft white noise and its ability to help soothe the auditory system and induce better rest. The fan-like tone produced by this model has been consistently rated as the best sleep inducing device by an overwhelming majority of our customers. That, along with the fact that it is assembled in the USA is why we make it our top recommendation. The Dohm comes in two models; the double speed (Hi and Low) Dohm DS and the single speed (just HI speed) Dohm SS. Keep in mind that all Dohms are limited in that they only generate one kind of tone and can only produce that sound at a fairly low volume when compared with electronic white noise makers that can amplify their sounds to a higher volume through a speaker.
There are a large number of electronic brands and models that produce an assortment of different restful sounds such as rain, waterfall, wind and ocean surf. If you prefer more variety in the output produced or would like to have the option of higher volume then our second highest recommendation would be the Sound Oasis S-650 which we rate as the best of the electronic sound makers since it has a better speaker and higher fidelity sounds than comparably priced units.
While most people seem to prefer the steady fan-like mechanical hum generated by the Dohm DS (formerly known as the Sleepmate 980A), if you prefer nature sounds (like sounds of a summer night, trickling brooks or a lake shore), you should definitely check out the Sound Oasis S-650.
