Natural Sounds for Relaxation and Better Sleep

SOUND+SLEEP offers 10 distinct sound profiles that are scientifically engineered to promote relaxation, deeper sleep, and a sense of renewal. Unlike other "white noise" sound machines, SOUND+SLEEP dynamically mixes together lengthy, naturally recorded, high-definition sounds eliminating repetition. The length of the recordings is important, but that is only part of it. SOUND+SLEEP "composes" the SoundStories on the fly out of a library of high-definition sounds, so that the composition you listen to does not repeat.

Chill out to soothing sounds of the ocean, rain, brook, or a cascading waterfall with one-touch volume control. Or drift off to sleep listening to relaxing meadow, fireplace, city, or train sounds. SOUND+SLEEP also offers white, pink, and brown noise, and a meditation sound profile as other options.

Listens and Reacts to the Environment

SOUND+SLEEP is the only machine that has Adaptive Sound technology, automatically adjusting to detected background noise for uninterrupted peace and relaxation. This system continuously and automatically "listens" for ambient noise that can disrupt your calm state. Adaptive Sound technology responds to intrusive noises by remixing sound profiles and adjusting the volume to mask the noise without becoming disruptive itself.

Compact Design with Customizable Features

SOUND+SLEEP has a compact, sleek design that fits on a bedside chair or table. Operation is easy, day or night, thanks to display lights that can be turned on or off and a four-level sleep timer for gradual turn-off in 30, 60, 90, or 120 minute increments. You can play the unit all night or use the timer. The all-night continuous play option lets you keep the soothing sounds going until you're ready to get up. Three richness settings control a broad range of additional sounds for optimal sleep conditions.

Product and Warranty Information

SOUND+SLEEP comes with a full one-year parts and labor warranty, and a 30 day return privilege.

It really works to help get both of us relaxed, for a good nights sleep.

The good news is I live in a rent-stabilized apartment in NYC. The bad news is I live in a rent-stabilized apartment in NYC where I am besieged by every kind of noise.

The worst offenders: a large clanking steam radiator; upstairs neighbors clomping around in hard-sole shoes on a bare hard-wood floor; construction noises next door and down the block; plus the usual assortment of horn honks and blaring sirens from vehicles on the avenue two doors over.

For some years, I have used the Marsonic travel white noise machine (around $80), which was the best unit I auditioned at Hammacher-Schlemmer at the time. It offered excellent sound and admirable volume, especially for such a small device, plus two sounds, waterfall and ocean, with a tone control.

But I was interested when I heard about Adaptive Sound's first machine, the one that sells for $300. Unfortunately that price busts my budget, so I was delighted to discover that their new machine, the Duet (now known as the Sound + Sleep), sells for one-third the price.

What is their exclusive adaptive technology? Well, it is NOT a phase-inversion technology, as used in noise-cancelling headphones. In other words, the machine doesn't make intrusive sounds disappear. What it DOES do is pump up the white noise volume almost instantaneously to mask intrusive sounds, a surprisingly effective technique.

The S+S still couldn't hide the clanking radiator -- at least in waterfall mode -- but I will try again tonight with "Meditation" mode -- a steady midrange drone that a yoga class would appreciate. The S+S did, however, make the footfalls upstairs disappear, as well as the construction and street noises. That beats the Marsonic by a mile!

For a long time, my husband wanted to get a white noise machine to help block out the street noise from our busy city block as well as mask my, um, penchant for loud snoring (he doesn't hear his own; what can I say?). He finally got around to researching machines and settled on this one, even though it was substantially more expensive than its competition here on Amazon. Well, it works, and it works well, for its intended purpose. We tried the various sounds (rainfall; nature; etc.) but found that the actual "white noise" setting works best. We like the fact that you can set the volume control and the pitch to achieve a soothing sound. The response feature -- where a microphone picks up ambient sounds like coughing and snoring and adjusts the volume accordingly -- actually works nicely. Good product that has contributed to better sleeping conditions for both of us.

I actually bought this machine primarily for use as a daytime sound-masking device. The low-frequency thumps from a nearby basketball court were driving me crazy when my kitchen window was open, so I put this device on my windowsill, selected the Ocean sound at a fairly low volume in adaptive mode, and much to my surprise, it's worked. I can't hear the basketball sounds any more, and the sound of the ocean waves, while not 100% realistic, is definitely more tolerable than the basketball court noises.

The machine's Adaptive Sound Technology hears outside noises and gently raises the volume to mask these sounds. This not only keeps the unwanted noises at bay, but it also allows you to keep the selected sound sample at a reasonably low level.

There is also a 'Richness' button, which adds complexity to the sounds. So for the ocean noise, it adds an occasional seagull; for the train, a whistle, etc.

I also tried this out as a sleeping-device, using its White Noise setting. While it was somewhat effective in helping me sleep and stay asleep, I still think that for sleeping white noise, the good ol' analog Marpac still can't be beat. Though it does work nicely in conjunction with the Marpac.

The digital sounds are sampled in 18 bit rather than the traditional 16 bit rate of CDs. I can tell the difference. The sounds are richer and more textured.

Overall, this is a great machine and way above the sound quality and capabilities of its digital competitors. My complaints are minor, and hopefully some of these issues will be addressed in a future version:

1. Volume Control: I would prefer a dial control rather than a push-button.

I bought an Ecotones Duet to help me sleep. I had read about Ecotones in a New York Times article, but only recently found that it was carried on Amazon.

I occasionally have trouble getting to sleep and sleeping pills leave me groggy in the morning. My Duet does the trick. For the last several nights, I have fallen asleep in 20 minutes or so. Of course since there are no drugs, there are no more groggy mornings.

The sounds that help me sleep the most are the evening meadow and the babbling brook. The ocean is also nice, but I haven't tried it yet at night. The noise masking feature works well although that is not why I bought the unit.

Last year I tried the Brookstone machine, but the sounds quality was so horrible that I turned it off after 10 minutes or so. Duet creates an absolutely believable naturescape. I like it.
