Top Sound Machines for Sleeping
Sleep sound machines are a wonderful thing! Once you find ‘the one‘ that is.
Contrary to what some people believe they are not intended to drown out all sound, but to mask undesirable noises and lessen the impact of disturbances. Think of the sound of a car back-firing in the dead of night when everything is silent. Now think of the same sound muffled by the everyday sounds of television and conversation…not nearly as impactful is it? Enter, the sleep sound miracle machine!
Not only are they marvellous for insomnia ( and tinnitus) sufferers but also for their soothing effects on the mind and soul of the rest of society.
In a dentist, for example; wouldn’t you rather hear a babbling brook, or some simple soothing white noise rather the sound of a dentists drill! and wouldn’t you feel more at ease knowing the people in the waiting area can hear birds singing, or the sea crashing rather than you wailing, gagging or pleading for sweet mercy! If we feel nervous, every little unnatural sound pings and pulverises our nerves and we at The Sleep Hub would love to see/hear more sound machines in our world.
And so to sleep…
Some of us find the noise of partners, children, neighbours, traffic and so on disturbing us throughout the night. A lot of people don’t even realise they are constantly being lured to the brink of wakefulness by noises several times a night that we do not consciously register; yet once they use a sleep machine they fast realise how bad their quality of sleep was.
Others just plain and simply need noise to help get them to drift off and ensure they stay asleep. If your husband insists on leaving the television on all night, buy him a portable sound machine and he will be forever in your debt. If you daughter has moved away for uni and her noisy house-mates are stealing her sleep, buy her the gift of soothing sound and solid sleep.
They are a shift-workers dream too, and can be a god-send for parents of little ones who do not “sleep like a baby” but more like a demented guard-dog whom springs to life at every little sound each time more aggravated than the last. See Best sleep/sound machines for children and babies
