Ecotones Duet Sleep Sound Machine
If you have ever experienced sleepless nights then you have probably wondered what could be a solution to this problem. If you have tried medical solutions you probably know that they can end up making you feel even more tired the next day and, in many cases, they don’t even give you a peaceful sleep either. There are, however, other solutions that are both natural and more healthy.
A sleep sound machine is a healthy and easy solution that can make you feel more relaxed and help you sleep better. A sleep sound machine, or a white noise machine as they are also called, is a machine that generates white noise that masks any unwanted sounds in the background.
If you live in an urban area there can be many disturbing noises during the night. Maybe there are noisy neighbors, people shouting at the street, a constant buzz of cars and traffic and many other disturbing noises that are a part of city life. Or maybe you live in a quiet place where the silence is only interrupted by a dripping tap or a ticking clock.
There can be many disturbing sounds to keep you awake at night. Even if you try very hard to ignore them they can keep troubling yu and keep you awake. In a situation like that a sleep sound machine will probably do the trick for you. It will help you relax as any other sounds from the background will be less audible or even disappear completely.
There are many different types of white noise and the best thing you can do is to research, which one works best for you. If you like the sound of a fan then you might like a white noise machine that can make a delicate and monotonous white noise that you can focus on. If you like natural sounds then you need a sound machine with natural sound recordings.
Ecotones Duet Sleep Sound Machine.
One of the more advance sleep sound machines on the market is the Ecotones Duet Sleep Sound Machine. It has a lot of smart settings and options for personal individualization so if you are the type of person that relax better with a spinning fan then this is not the one for you. But if you like natural sounds then Ecotones has a lot of nice sound recordings.
The Ecotones Duet Sleep Sound Machine uses an intelligent system that doesn’t remove any background noises but it masks them instead by reacting instantly to any change of sound in the environment. This means that it listens to the sounds of the surroundings and intelligently responds when it detects any change. The sleep sound machine has a small built-in microphone that is able to react to even the smallest sound disturbances. Accordingly, it will change its own sound and volume to make the disturbances less audible.
This sleep sound machine will also give you many sound recordings to choose from so there are lots of different variations to try out. There are natural sound recordings such as rainfall, meadow, ocean and crackling fireplace. There is even a sound recording called city, so if you are away and you miss the sounds of the bustling city then this is the right track for you.
It also has more monotonous sound options such as train sound, fan and just a plain white noise. So there is a sound for any preference. The Ecotones system uses ‘sound stories’ that will continue for about 30 minutes before they repeat. This is a great feature if you compare to other sleep sound machines that repeats with short intervals, which makes a pattern in the sound. This can be a very disturbing factor for many people and can actually keep some people awake as this is the problem they are trying to find a solution to. In that case, the solution becomes the problem instead.
But this will not happen with the Ecotones as there are no obvious loops or repetitive patterns. Also the options for volume and richness allows you to customize it according to your personal preference.
There are, however, a few downsides to the Ecotones Duet Sleep Sound Machine. One is that there is no alarm clock feature, which is quite strange when you consider all the settings. Then an alarm clock is an almost obvious feature to leave out. The other bad thing about it is that it is hard to see what volume control it is set at. This makes it a little harder to adjust the right volume at times.
But all in all, this is definitely one of the best sleep sound machines when it comes to sound recordings. It works really well and its relaxing sounds and intelligent responding system will easily masks those disturbing sounds that keep you awake. If you have a partner that is snoring then it will also help camouflage those sounds just like it will help if somebody is suffering from a cough.
