Comparison of White Noise Machine Products

Aug 17, 2007
If you're in the market for a white noise machine, you're probably already aware of the benefits they pose in daily life and are searching for a healthy alternative to prescription or over-the-counter sleep aids that can leave you feeling hung over in the morning. With such a large selection of products on the market, it can be difficult to find the type best suited for your needs. This article will compare and contrast four different makes and models and discuss the strengths of each for various uses.

The SleepMate/Sound Screen:
According to sale figures, this machine is the most popular white noise machine on the market. The SleepMate/Sound Screen produces white noise by combining all sounds audible to the human ear to "mask" or absorb individual sounds. The sound emitted by the SleepMate sounds similar to that of a fan and is naturally generated; meaning no sound looping or sound lapses like that of a CD. This machine is ideal for those who don't want to add sounds to their environment, but to absorb distracting sounds.

Marsona DS-600:
Many people turn to a white noise machine in order to relax and wind down enough to fall asleep rather than specifically masking other noises. This machine sound conditioner emits the peaceful, relaxing sounds of nature like babbling brooks, lapping surf, and drizzling rain. The DS-600 is also effective in blocking out unwanted noise from loud neighbors, busy streets, or others still awake in the household.

LifeSounds 440 Infant Sounds:
The sounds produced by this machine are specifically engineered for babies and young children. The noise is generated from the natural sounds of soothing surf, peaceful flowing brooks, and calming rain. In addition to white noise, the LifeSounds 440 includes sounds that babies find comforting such as the womb, a heartbeat, and lullabies. It is lightweight, portable, and works with a battery as well as plug for use while traveling or away from home.

Bio-Brite Sunrise Alarm Clock:
Since most people use a white noise machine to fall asleep, it makes sense to combine the machine with advanced alarm clock features. The Bio-Brite not only helps you to wind down, but also to wake with less stress. The most interesting feature about this machine is that it promotes relaxation of several different levels with an artificial "sunset" that dims the room as the white noise lulls you to sleep. The Bio-Brite Sunrise Alarm Clock offers the option of having sound fade out with the sunset or remain on throughout the night. In the morning, this machine will wake you by gently filling the room with bright artificial sunlight. This machine may not be ideal for light sensitive partners that wake after you as it fills the room with light in addition to the standard sound of the alarm clock.

Your reasons for choosing one machine over another will be as unique as you are. Each person has different reasons for suffering from restless nights. While some may need the absolute silence produced by a machine like the Sound Screen, others enjoy the peaceful ambiance created by the Marsona DS-600 or the LifeSounds 440. No matter your sleep and relaxation needs, a white noise machine is a healthy, natural alternative to prescription or over-the-counter sleep aids.
