Best Sounds For Sleep

Is it just me, or do any of you absolutely love to climb in bed at the end of the day?

What if I told you I have a great way to make sure you fall asleep peacefully and quickly? Would you believe that, or would you need more proof?

Well, I’ve found an all-natural way to drift off into dreamland, and in a minute, we’re going to examine the best sounds for sleep and the best way I’ve found to enter a slobbering slumber.

I mean, some days I’ve been up for almost 18 hours when it’ finally time to pack it in, so getting some serious sack time is pretty high up on my priority list. And it’s soooo frustrating when you hit the hay and the toss and turn and lay in bed staring at the ceiling.

Has anyone been there?

I feel your pain. Let’s take a look at some of the best sleep machines that are conducive to a good night’s sleep, something we all strive for and that’s so important for many reasons.

LectroFan High Fidelity White Noise Machine

Here’s a versatile machine that will never let you down. It’s packed with loads of useful features and modes, as you can see from the list below.


  • Produces 10 different fan sounds and ten ambient noise variations, including white, brown, and pink noise
  • 100% electronic device, no moving parts at all, so no vibration or rattles
  • Digital sounds are extremely realistic – large, high fidelity speaker
  • Perfect for children’s rooms
  • Powered by AC or USB
  • Doesn’t change room temperature
  • Uses less electricity than a regular fan
  • Helps drown out annoying background noises

This machine has a large number of soothing sounds, but where it really excels is blocking out noise. That means no more barking dogs or tweeting birds at first light, as this machine pretty much eliminates outside noises. You have to hear it to believe it, according to some users.

This machine even has a timer, which makes it pretty much perfect for what it’s designed for.

HINT: Get the case, because you’ll want to take this on the road with you!

Marpac Dohm Classic White Noise Sound Machine

White noise is produced by mixing sounds of all different frequencies. It’s like thousands of tones all playing at the same time, and the effect is that of drowning out background noises. And speaking of that, the Marpac Dohm is a great machine for masking unwanted sounds.

Just look at some of these features.

  • Induces a relaxed state by producing a comforting, soothing sound
  • Very effective at drowning out background noise
  • No blast of cold air or rattling and wheezing that a fan might produce
  • Perfect for “light sleepers”
  • Compact size – approximately 6 X 6 X 3 inches – weighs under 2 pounds
  • Easy to operate with simple controls – only high and low setting
  • Ac powered
  • Perfect for children’s rooms
  • One-year guarantee from manufacturer should something go wrong
  • Operates on 120V AC power

The Marpac Dohm is a tried and true unit that has been around for quite some time. I like the fact that you can adjust the sound openings so you can fine-tune the noise and get a setting you really like.

All-in-all, this is a really solid unit and does what it advertises.

EcoTones Sound Sleep Machine

This Sound+Sleep high fidelity sleep sound machine really has all the bases covered. It’s packed with so many features that you’ll never be bored, and because it’s so versatile it may be the only sleep sound machine you’ll ever need.

Just check out these features:

  • 30 different non-repeating sounds
  • Choose from Meadow, Brook, Waterfall, Meditation, and many others
  • Auto adjusting volume adapts to ambient environment noise
  • Front panel lights dim automatically, or can be shut off completely
  • 5 mm audio connector for use with sleep headphones
  • Sounds never loop, no pattern to get stuck in, for ultimate relaxation
  • Patented Adaptive Sound Technology
  • 5 X 5.5 X 4.5 inches – weighing in at around 2 pounds

Honestly, this machine has so many settings that I think it’s possible to please almost everyone. But don’t get the wrong idea, it’s still simple to figure out and can be used in a basic sound machine mode as well.

The ability to control the levels of sound and add different sounds to existing track is amazing. For instance, if you choose waves on low, you get soothing wave sounds, but if you bump it up a level you get birds mixed in also.

I’m telling you, they’ve thought of everything!

  • Use your favorite sleep headphones with the built-in 3.5mm jack

  • Handy sleep timer
  • Convenient memory feature

  • Clear, crisp sound
  • Tiny footprint – approximately 4 X 4 X 2.5 inches – just over 1 pound in weight

This unit is awesome for a number of reasons. When you turn it back on, it remembers the sound and volume settings from your previous session, which is very convenient.

You can also set the timer for whatever time you prefer, and the unit will gradually reduce the sound so it doesn’t disturb you.

No looping, and the lightweight, portable size make it a real winner.

The company is also known for great customer service in the unlikely event that you should have an issue.

Some users have reported that there are trouble with the buttons being depressed and then never returning to normal, but overall it’s a very reliable unit.
