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.
Works as described. Simple to operate. Great for home use, but too bulky for travel.
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.
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.
A PRFECT GIFT FOR PEOPLE IN NEED FOR SLEEPING SOUNDS
Love the Six Sound Soother! RELAXING!!!
This sound soother has real quality sound. Great for relaxing and helps for sleeping!!
simple to operate
Easy to use. Nice design. Lightweight. Havent had it long enough to comment on battery life. Volulme is good, but could be louder for the hard of hearing folks. Nice that it will take a pillow speaker, but I dont have one to try. Also nice that you can add another sound card.
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
had trouble find one with a wind option.
to help to fall asleep
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.
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
Soothing, restful sleep
The six sound soother helps me relax and fall asleep, and sleep well through the night. Street noises are blocked by ocean waves or five other soothing sounds. A small investment for many restful nights.
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.
Six Sound Soother - works great.
Great sounds. We like the ocean waves. Also like the continuous feature. It can also shut off after a half hour or hour, or so.
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.
This is a lightweight and very easy to use controls. The sound quality is very clear. You wont be disappointed.
Sound quality a disappointment
Sound quality was a disappointment. Some of the sounds were harsh and over powering, especially since it was used in bedroom at night.
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.
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.
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!
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 ...
Six Sound Souther
I like the fact that I can travel with it anywhere. There is a good selection of white noise to choose from however I think the "summer sounds" (crickets) are just too soft. Otherwise, great product!
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.
Just what i needed.
I have tinnitus so this helps me get to sleep!
Faster to sleep and much sounder sleep!
I go to sleep faster, less tossing and turning and wake up refreshed.
Not since the Monsoon Rains on the tin roof in Vietnam have I slept
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.
My husband has ringing ears and always needs white noise to block out sounds in order to sleep.He would run a fan all night to create the noise he needed. I would be uncomfortable with a dry mouth or be cold with the fan running. This device works well for him and me. Very happy with the purchase!!
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!
Six Sound Soother
soothing and relaxing
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.
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.
This product is my sleep enhancer. I especially like the six choices of sounds. This model has the most realistic sounds of any model tested. The choices of time are especially helpful. I can use it all night, but use it most for one hour when I go to bed. The controls are simple and easy to use.
Very satisfied wtih this product
Looked around for a long time to find a product like this one. Others were bulky and had poor sound. This one has crystal clear sound and volume goes very high when required to block out significant noise.
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.
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.
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
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.
A gift for my father-in-law
I use the device every night and always travel with it. I use the "white noise" to help relieve tinnitus.
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.
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.
Recommend Six Sound Soother
I love listening the various sounds as I am insomanic at night time. It helped me falling asleep with sound. Thank you! Id recommend this product. The delivery was prompt to my home.
Love this...cant be without it.
I have a hard time falling asleep; I had another sleep machine originally, but it died on me. I love Sharper Image so took a look on their site and found this. I like the fact that it has other sounds besides just "white noise". I change to different sounds depending on my mood. It does a great job of blocking out background noise and the adjustable volume is great, especially when traveling, since you never know what type of room you will have and if the walls are thin.
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.
having tinnitus it really helps my night time 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.
These are used outside offices while there is a session going on to keep privacy. They are great and give some mellow tunes for listening
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.
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.
This is the best of the rest. promise
I use this to sleep 1 hour for break at night
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.
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.
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!
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.
This was exactly what I wanted!
This replaces my husbands need for TV all night. I also find it a good sleep companion.
Im very pleased
I have only good things to say about this product ,my husband and I luv to hear rain and storm sounds to fall asleep to . Its very neat , sounds great , its everything we would expect . Thank you
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.
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.
Puts us to sleep every night
High quality sound
I can finally sleep through the night!
Depending on your mood you can drift off to sleep at the beach or in the country!
I use the sound machine to mask my husbands snoring. The sounds are very relaxing and we are both sleeping better.
Comparison to existing device
I use this product to get me to sleep every night. I had another brand, but feel I am going to like this one better, particularly that I can have so many different sounds. The sound is good, and the design is attractive so that it blends with framed photos on my night table.
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!!
really easy to use. the white noise is the one I use the most. just enough to mask outside noises.
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
Works well...does what is advertised to do
and would never be without. Sleep great. My favorite sound is the rain!!
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.
Perfect for what we needed
We use this product to mask private converstions in our medication room. We hung it on the wall outside the door of the room and waiting patients cannot hear what is being said inside the room. A perfect use for this product
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!
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!
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.
my second one
Able to add multiple sound cards & use a sleep wrap with speakers plugged into it.
A wonderful gift for a spa feel!
Easy to use.....works perfectly!
Best-Ever White Noise Machine
The white noise is true white noise, not fan noise or static. Even at loud volume its soothing. On battery for travel its still loud enough, unlike other machines that have sounded weaker on battery power. At home, the plug-in works great too.
Nice looking. Controls work fine. Sound button should be on the top somewhere. Cannot be changed while in bed with one hand, unless its pinned to wall or backboard. All in all its a good product. Money well spent.
And you do need more room for an appropriate answer to the questions
Does what it is supposed to do
Provides good background so I dont hear my tinitus all night, allowing me to sleep more soundly. The only provided continual background noise, though, is white. Instead of adding noises that try to mimic nature sounds (babbling brook, rain storm, etc.) I would have prefered different continual background noises to choose from (white noise, pink noise, etc.) Otherwise this preforms eactly as advertised.
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.
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.
Six Sound Soother
Compact and nice to use. We love the feature of the noise staying on along with set times.
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.
The resume button is great; set it once and forget it.
Worth tne cost
at night, helps me to relax
Other products give you a "tinty" sound and background noise that is simply unbearable! Only Shaper Image has true to life recordings that help me go to sleep faster. You get this all at a great price and this particular unit allows you to purchase other sound cards that go with it. I cant recommend this enough to everyone!! I LOVE it. Thank you Sharper Image!!!
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.
The Best of the best!!!
I use this sound soother mainly for night time, but use it when I take a nap too!! I have even used it while reading a book as soothing background. It is so REALISTIC with no "tinty" sound like other brands and I cannot recommend this Sharper Image product enough!!! I absolutely love it!!!
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.
Great little Machine
I bought it for work. I really enjoy the sound quality. I am glad I made this purchase and you will too.
