Great, soothing sleep sounds
I use this product when I am trying to sleep and other people in my building are still up. I like the white noise best, it is a perfect frequency and really helps with the noise.
HEY, I CAN SLEEP AGAIN
TOO MANY SOUNDS SPOIL THE MACHINE. SIX IS JUST RIGHT. THEY ARE GOOD SOUNDS TOO!
Able to get a good nights sleep again! Drowns out most noises.
I bought this for my 15 year old granddaughter as she has trouble getting to sleep. She loves it. I also have one and I love it.
Best White Noise Machine
Use every night. It works great!!!
Its still new - but thus far has been great. The sound is full and I dont (yet) hear any repetition. Just what we needed!
An Attractive White Noise Machine!
Particularly good and easy controls that command the running time of the sound: 15/30/45 minutes and continuous.
Enjoying my sound machine
Bought this for my daughter who works nights, sleeps days. It blocks out the everyday noises perfectly. Just right for our needs.
This is a terrific sound machine!!
If you have a problem falling asleep as I did, this little machine will "do the trick". There are 6 sounds to choose from, everyone being a little different. All of them are wonderful. It feels sooo good to finally be able to fall asleep so quickly, and after 90 minutes, the machine shuts itself off. What more could one want?
This was one fantastic purchase!
Now a sound sleeper
As I aged (I am 66 y/o)I was having difficulty getting to sleep and staying that way. I had often thought I would like one of these sound machines but never bought one. Finally I got the thing and use it every night, most often it is the "white noise". Love, love,love, this new toy of mine.
having tinnitus it really helps my night time sleeping.
Love the Six Sound Soother! RELAXING!!!
This sound soother has real quality sound. Great for relaxing and helps for sleeping!!
white noise too soft
I bought this unit because it had white noise which I would use to drown out outside street noise. But it is so soft compared to the other sounds that I cant get it loud enough. I hope the optional Sound Card has a louder noise.
great value for the money
bought this sound system for my grandson and find that I am using it also at night to drown out the loud television in our living room. soothing, relaxing and exactly what I would expect the sounds to sound like. just love it
Husband loves it
Gave this to my husband for Christmas. Typically he is a "tough sale" for gadgets however he LOVES this sleep sound soother. He has used it every night and initially set it for 30 minutes. Last night he extended the sounds for 60 minutes as he really enjoys hearing the ocean. (Me I love the crickets)
Average sound machine.
Easy use.Not natural sounding.More like a running faucet.
Great product. Performs as advertised. Realistic sounds that really helps you sleep. Use it both at home and when I travel.
We got this to supplement our radio which has sound features of nature. Of the 6 choices, this Sharper Image model only features one sound that our radio does not have. Since we wanted variety, I can only recommmend this model if you want the standard Rain, Ocean, White Noice, Wind, etc. sounds.
had trouble find one with a wind option.
to help to fall asleep
I am a chronic insomniac, and I have a lot of traffic noise outside of my apartment, as well as airplanes overhead. I wear earplugs, which doesnt drown out the noise. With this product I like to listen to crickets or the ocean and imagine I am somewhere else. It doesnt quite compete with the traffic but it gives me enough of a distraction without being intrusive that I can become very relaxed. I like the fact that it can go for 90 minutes and then taper off quietly unless you start it again. The one thing I would change is make the stand-up feature sturdier. It keeps falling off.
Really like it
Well worth the price. Enough options to choose from and they all sound pretty close to the real things. The stream option is a little loud, but the others are nice. Ive tried another, more expensive white noise machine and this gadget is much better.
Restful sleep at last!
I experience continous tinnitus (ringing in the ears) which is more severe when I am trying to sleep. Add that to my husbands snoring, and getting to sleep had been often impossible! So, I thought this would help lull me to sleep, decrease the sound of the tinnitus and soften the rumbles of the husband. And, it has done all three! I feel rested and ready for the morning. Great, easy to use and portable device! I love the choice of sounds and as if I am on the seashore, hearing the rain...etc.
Does the Job
Good sounds but theyre compromised by the low quality speaker, it would be a better unit if it had a more robust sound.
LOVE THIS ITEM!!!
I have to say that Ive been having a difficult time getting out of bed in the morning. Listening to the sound of waves crashing all night is so soothing that I feel like Im on a beachside vacation. The product was delivered a lot quicker than expected. I bought it because I moved from the city to the suburbs where its so quiet at night that every little thing I hear wakes me. This sound soother creates enough ambient noise to help me sleep. It has a volume control and a setting for different timers or continuous use.I chose it because of its design. I didnt want another bulky item cluttering my nightstand and Im able to prop this up behind a picture frame to hide it without affecting the sound quality.
I received my delivery at my noisy office and immediately opened it and tried it out. It creates a nice little buffer for office chatter as well.
The only problem I had was with the extra sound card I bought for the thunderstorms. It didnt work when I inserted the card. I called Sharper Image a
The secret to a good nights sleep
I have finally found the secret to a good nights sleep. Its Sharper Images White Noise machine. There are so many sound options to help you drift off that youre sure to find one that works for you. You will also notice a deeper sleep pattern emerge. I would have paid twice as much for it!!
six sound soother
Ive always needed a fan to sleep. This gets to be a problem when we travel. This product is light weight and great. It has replaced my fan.
Love this machine!
I use this product every night on the "continuous" option. Along with this, I use a Sleephones headband, which I plug into the convenient earphone jack located on the side of the machine; as a result, the sounds almost completely drown out the sound of my husbands snoring. This is one of the very few machines that offers the earphones jack. It also provides you with the option of hanging it on the wall or setting it in an upright or down position. I am extremely pleased with this product!
This was a x-mas present for mother-in-law who lives in a small town but a busy street. She said the ocean sounds really helped to decrease the noise and allows her to rest better. Also, the controls are really easy for someone who is older and who is not that technical.
The Best Sound Machine money can buy
I used to use PM to sleep at night. Now, no more. This machine with its extra sound cards are the BEST. They are Very Realistic and put your mind at ease every time you use it. You can try new sounds at the push of a button. Easy as can be, or change the sound card to a new place to be that night.I highly recommend this product to anyone who enjoys the sound of the ocean or rain or animals singing or frogs croaking to sleep
The product is great. I can`t go to sleep without it.
Having gone through several bulky "white noise" products in the past, I am very happy with the size of this product and how easy it is to transport. The 30-60-90-cont. controls are great for all night or just a nap. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the white noise setting began to make a intermittent static noise after about 2 days of use (sounds almost like a blown speaker). Otherwise, a good product.
Just what I was looking to purchase
We live on a busy highway and frequently watch our grandson. This sound machine is a blessing. It keeps the highway noise to a minimum.
Just what we needed
We use it in an office setting that is very diverse.
some jobs are casual and chatty; others require quiet thinking hours.
We also use it for a writer who wants relaxation to soothe the writers soul.
Good Sound Machine
I was a little disappointed in the dial controls -not the best. The rain sound has a very high, sharp quality - I will likely only use the surf sound or white noise. I do like the timer option.
Im sorry it took me so long to get one
the sounds are so real and have a lot to choose from and you can set it for continous which for me is great esp with my tintinitis
I like but too early to tell
I developed "tinnitus" and purchased this product as I was told the "white noise" may help eliminate this issue. Have only been using it about 3 weeks so really too soon to tell for that issue but it is relaxing to fall asleep by.
Worth the money
I generally use the product when I lay down to go to bed......helps calm me before bed.
Great for a good nights sleep
Purchased two, one for myself and the other for my 97 year old relative who was also having difficulty sleeping. We both have found our ability to have a restful night sleep greatly improved with this equipment.
Love this product.
Listen to this every night to get to sleep. Great machine. Rain sound is my favorite.
I would buy this again.
Can turn on and off without having to adjust volume. Would like more sounds without having to buy another card. Use every night and for naps.
Six Sound Soother
I use to sleep with. My cat and I just love it. It blocks out all the outside noises to make for a nice comfortable sleep. It is one of those things that you can do without, but once you have it, you cant do with out it.
A good nights sleep
We use this when we sleep and the sounds are great and it has worked very well. The design is attractive. Our only concern was we had it on battery and selected continuous, it stopped by itself in the morning (we were not yet up). The controls did not work until we plugged it in. Weve used it since and the batteries work so dont know if there is a determinate time for "continuous". There were no instructions which would have helped. We have also ordered additional sound cards which we are still waiting on (they have a really good selection of sounds).
The cricket sound doesnt always want to work.
Tried the Rest-Sound Oasis is the Best!
We tried another product from a local "bricks and mortar" retailer. It was battery only and "ate" the batteries! Took it back and tried others in the store, but not impressed. Googled sleep machines and came up with Sharper Image. This Sound Oasis Six Sound machine is fabulous! Great quality of sound, design, etc. Ordered the optional Sound Card with 6 new sounds - couldnt get it to work - called the Sound Oasis company listed in guarantee - they called me back immediately and walked me through to success! Love, love, love the SERVICE!!
Smooth as silk
Use to decompress before sleep. Put it on continuous setting.
Seems to help me stay asleep longer. Also great for romantic
ambiance. The only negative is stand, which doesnt work. I just
place unit flat on bedside table. Looks better that way, anyway.
I was surprised that the "summer nights" setting is crickets
chirping. I find that one of the most annoying sounds in the
universe. Other choices are great! Good price for such a useful
As advertised--------excellent product
Bought it as a gift now I want one.
I purchased this as a gift for a special friend who just moved into a new apartment in a building in downtown Los Angeles. Sghe complained about the srrteet noise keeping her awake. She loves it and says it did the trick. Easy to operate and has enough features to satisfy most.
I dont know what the people are talking about that say its flimsy or not very good. It works every time for me, not only with my personal favorite (white noise), but also every other one. Much better than the garbage from other stores. And I received it in two days!
Works well...does what is advertised to do
and would never be without. Sleep great. My favorite sound is the rain!!
There is nothing as wonderful as a good night sleep..I am asleep within 15 minutes when I hear the soothing sounds !! Morning is wonderfu ...
A great product
We recently stayed in a hotel that used the sound Soother. I loved it and bought one as soon as I got home. It is very relaxing, I go to sleep faster and if I wake up during the night, I go right back to sleep. It helps screen out the noise of my neighbors who talk on their back patio almost every night. When my husband doesnt want to hear it, I just use my earphones and plug in. I think it is a great product and it is small enough to take with me when I travel
Very neat looking design and easy to use. Like all the options.
Best gift ever!
My sweetheart absolutely loved the item. She has used it every night since I gave it to her and told me it was the most thoughtful gift she ever received. Street noise was keeping her up all night until now.
I bought this as a gift.
I bought this as a gift for my granddaughter who has trouble sleeping. I have one and I love it.
Bought for my wife and she loves it.
Helps my wife with her sleep.
A little pricey for me but ...
My wife uses the Sound Machine at bedtime to drown out other sounds in the house that may cause the dogs to bark. It also relaxes her.
I love this machine!!!
I have loud dogs and neighbors so I have a very hard time sleeping, so I have been looking for a good white noise machine for a very long time. I have found the one I will keep for always. All of the sounds are great. I loved that you could listen to them online first. All the sounds are calming and realistic. I like that you can have it low and still hear it. Its so compact it sits on my night stand. I listen to the white noise the most. I love it so much I leave it on all the time. The first night I used it I slept like a baby. I am so less stressed at home and can relax better. I just wish it came with a snap in place base. The one it comes with is pretty flimsy, but it does work. You will be very happy you bought this. I know I am!
This product was such a disappointment. All the sounds were incredibly harsh...I dont know how anyone could fall asleep with this sound machine. I tried it out for several nights and it just kept me up. I purchased this because I have tinnitus and background noise helps make that less noticeable...but this sound machine just has awful sounds. They are not peaceful or soothing in any way! Also the control buttons are very flimsy.
CLEAR SOUND AND EASY TO USE
THIS ONE REPLACES A PREVIOUS ONE BOUGHT FROM SHARPER IMAGE MANY YEARS AGO. THE SOUND IS STRONG AND CLEAR AND PROVIDES THE MASKING NOISE NEEDED FOR A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP
Sound Soother Supreme
I snore so the wife is very happy and I can now sleep with her again.
I am ordering a second machine.
I use this in a large room with high ceilings that at times gets road noise. Now you dont hear any road noise and the relaxing sounds lull me to sleep!
True realistic sound
I have tried other brands and could always hear the sound loop, however this product has a veried and natural sound. I use it every night, and look forward to the soothing environment it helps create.
GREAT FOR SLEEPING!
We bought this same unit over 12 years ago and use it every evening in our bedroom for white noise. We take it with us on vacation and have put them in our kids rooms too-they block out all of the annoying noises that keep you awake!
Just what i needed.
I have tinnitus so this helps me get to sleep!
I would buy his product again
Got this as a gift for my dad who is in a nursing home. Very soothing for him to listen to.
sleeping like a baby
I love the sounds and I sleep like a baby
I bought this because it can be used both power and batteries. My previous sound machine was a Brookstone Tranquil Moments. It worked great but the light on it was too bright. I did see many reviews with complaints about the bright light. This Sound Soother from Sharper Image has no light which I like.
Loud is what I wanted and loud I got!
I got one for my granddaughter in Germany and also myself. We love the fact that it is so loud.
sounds are clear and repeater is not often enough to annoy you. Love it.
This item helps me get to sleep in no ti
I use it to get to sleep.
So far the Sound Soother has helped me fall asleep more quickly. I would recommend this product.
I would buy agsin.
It helps me sleep better @ night.
I LOVE IT!!!!PUTS ME TO SLEEP EVERYNIGHT
SOUNDS ARE SO REALISTIC. I PLAN TO ORDER THE CHIP WITH THE SOUNDS OF LOONS TO REMIND ME OF OUR LAKE CABIN IN MINNESOTA.
Great, sleek design!!
I use to drown out the noisy sounds of a local drilling rig and believe me it is loud! The controls are very user friendly. Love the ocean sounds! Plan to take with me on vacation too!
Good, but not great
I have always had trouble sleeping, and started sleeping with a box fan years ago; however, the box fan is trouble for people with allergies, winter, and travelling. I started using sound machines about five years ago. One thing that I didnt like about sound machines is that the white noise sound is a higher pitch than a fan sound, and this machine is no different. The white noise is a pretty standard white noise sound that is comparable across several popular machines (Ive tried Marsona, Brookstone, Lectrofan, and a few others). What I do like about this product is the design; it is light, compact, and portable (for travelling). It operates on both batteries and a plug, so you can even take it on a wilderness adventure. I wish the volume could go higher and the sounds were a little different and had a lower pitch option. This is the best one out there if you absolutely need a machine that runs on batteries, but if you dont care about that or need something a lower pitch, you might look elsewhere.
I love it.
I bought this as a Christmas present for my granddaughter as I have one and she loves it. Helps us both get to sleep.
Six Sound Soother
Compact and nice to use. We love the feature of the noise staying on along with set times.
my wife use to sleep with 2 fans blowing just for the noise,this piece has made my life a lot easier and allows her to sleep all night.
Best invention ever. Now make in U.S.
It was like a miracle. Have a hard time getting to sleep and after 4 hrs of sleep, couldnt sleep any longer, for years.
Woke up at the usual time of 3am and was amazed how easy it was to get back to sleep.
This may cure all my health problems to begin getting the necessary sleep each night.
Cant tell you how happy I am with it.
Seems like a great product so far, really like the variety of sound it produces. We moved to a busy street and needed something to help our kid sleep better so I found this. The sound quality is the only thing I think could be a little better, but it really isnt bad at all.
High Quality. It i just as described.
I use this everynight. It really helps me sleep better.
Best present I got this year
Love the ocean sounds. I fall asleep easily to it, and if this is a bad thing, it makes me want to stay in bed. It does have 30/60/90 minute shutoffs but I prefer the continuous mode.
The resume button is great; set it once and forget it.
sleeping like a baby
loved it so much also ordered one for my daughter love the sounds
love it,its great!
sleep like a baby
And so to SLEEP............
We live across from a fire department....a very busy one. It is a tolerent noise, but one that often left us with a somewhat disturbed sleep. Now the edges seem to be ironed out and we are wrapped in soothing comfort.
Great machine, concerned about long term
For the first 2 weeks, this was the best thing ever, especially the feature that allows it to play all night. Most have a 30 or 60 min timer. (This one includes all 3 options) For my son who struggles with waking up at night it was very important for his room to be the same as it was when he fell asleep. Especially the little bugs chirping. I like the different options. However, now I have to jiggle it a bit in the outlet to make sure it is in correctly or it doesnt play. Hopefully it will last a while.
I bought this because I was having so much trouble sleeping with my two dogs and partner all snoring! I use it every night and the sound is wonderful and I can turn up the volume if they snore even louder! Controls are easy to use and the sleek modern look fits my decor very well.
