I don’t usually push products, but this is one I’ve been addicted to for over thirty years.
You’ve probably seen and maybe even heard all those newer and fancier sound machines that are supposed to lull you to sleep. They’re digital, and they feature gushing waterfalls and ocean waves and chirping crickets and other sounds that are purported to soothe you into dreamland. But all their sounds have a tinny quality to my ear, an unnaturalness that the old tried and true “Sleepmate” lacks.
I’ve learned there are two types of people in the world: those who want absolute quiet when they sleep, and those who prefer low and monotonous sound, especially if they need to mask the snoring of a loved one or the sirens of city traffic, or even the spring peepers in the country (a sound I happen to love, but not for sleeping).
