Product Description

Size: 1 Pack | Color: Black

Naturally Produces White Noise The Dohm produces white noise naturally, without digital loops or recordings. Its consistent, unobtrusive sound blocks out everyday noises, like neighbors' music, a partner's snoring, or coworkers' chatter. The white noise produced by the Dohm can also be used as a shield to provide confidentiality for doctor's appointments, phone calls with clients, or to otherwise protect personal privacy. For those who prefer some noise to no noise at all, the Dohm provides a soft, comfortable background sound where it might otherwise be too quiet. For Home, Office, or Travel Use While it is most commonly used in the bedroom to improve quality of sleep, the Dohm is also useful in many other situations. Use it in a home nursery or day care center to help soothe babies to sleep, in a college dorm room to keep students focused on schoolwork, in a busy office with little separation between cubicles, or in any environment where unwanted or intrusive noise is a problem. You can also use this sound conditioner when you are traveling to make your hotel room feel more like home. Set Speed for Ideal Volume and Tone This sound conditioner offers two-speed operation, which means you can choose the volume and tone that is best for you. First choose "high" or "low" setting, then fine-tune the sound by twisting the cap and collar. Durable, Lightweight Construction For quality, durability, and easy care, the Marpac Dohm-DS is made in the USA of sturdy plastic. This compact, portable sound machine is just 3-1/4 inches high with a base diameter of 5-3/4 inches, giving it a small footprint on your desk or nightstand. At just 1-1/2 pounds, the Dohm is light enough for easy traveling. Easy Plug-In Operation The UL-listed Marpac Dohm-DS has an 8-foot power cord and runs on a normal household current. Warranty Information The Marpac Dohm-DS is backed by a one-year limited warranty. What's in the Box Marpac Dohm-DS sound conditioner, power cord, and user manual.

I've had trouble sleeping because of background noise for years. I finally bought this because I live in a duplex and my neighbors are loud and erratic in behavior, arguing and moving furniture around at 3:00 am. I was afraid to even try to sleep at home after several days with little sleep and my roommate made me buy this because I was ready to move out.

This product is great. It makes a very fan-like sound, but with no mechanical or cycling sounds, or rattling. This is just a constant whoosh. It has two speeds and you can change the sound of the whoosh by changing the postition of the vent holes on the device. It has a switch right on the side of it, not on the cord so it's easy to use. It's even padded on the bottom to make sure it doesn't vibrate.

I used the low setting last night and slept through the night for the first time in the month since the crazy animals downstairs moved in.

I've been relying on ceiling fans and box fans for background noise for years, this is much better. It's a fuller sound, it covers more, and it doesn't make me cold.

As many others have said in previous reviews, this is unlike those pre-recorded white noise sounds. This cannot repeat, because it's actually making the sound as you hear it.

I travel for a living and stay in a lot of hotels. I look forward to taking this thing with me and blocking out the sounds of neighbor's TV's and talking and vehicles, etc. . . It's very small and lightweight, and seems durable.

I don't know why I didn't buy this sooner. Shooting my neighbors is the only thing that would help me sleep better, but this is legal so perhaps a better choice.

I've been using my white Dohm-DS for a week now and I love it. But there was a moment when I seriously considered returning it. I'll say more about that below.

To anyone who is considering buying a Dohm I recommend visiting Marpac dot com and reading up on the Dohm and it's history. Follow the About Us link and read Our Story, where you can read about how this unit was invented in 1962. You will also learn that this product is handmade in the USA and in the Our People section (below Our Story), you can read a bit about the real people who operate Marpac. You can also view the short manual for the Dohm-DS at the Marpac site.

I also recommend that you watch a video or two on this unit (easy to find on YouTube) so you can get a sense of the sound it makes.

This is NOT a digital device and it does NOT have a speaker. It therefore makes no sense to ask if it has a headphone jack. The prototype for the Dohm, as you can learn if you visit the Marpac site and read Our Story, consisted of a turntable motor (turntable as in record player) with a small fan blade "inside a dog bowl encased in a disc of foam-covered wood." The inventor, Jim Buckwalter, found that the sound from rushing air produced by this device "masked sounds that kept him awake at night" and helped him, friends and members of his family sleep better. The unit you will receive if you buy one "is somewhat more sophisticated than its dog-dish ancestor, [but] its guts are fundamentally the same."

This of course leads some people to say that the Dohm is "just a fan" and to suggest that because one can buy a small fan with different speed settings for less than what a dual speed Dohm costs, one is better off using a fan.

The first thing to note is that this manufacturer sells the identical product under two names, SleepMate and SoundScreen. The only difference is the name--having "SleepMate" on the label was deemed a bit awkward for office use. They're both exactly the same otherwise.

I bought this based on wildly favorable reviews online. I found no one who rated it anything less than "incredible." I am extremely sensitive to noise. If a bit of the neighbor's stereo noise bleeds into my home, I'm completely unable to tune it out. I can't read, and sometimes can't even watch TV comfortably. Unfortunately, I live in an area of dense apartments--where the weather is such that the windows have to stay open--and my husband snores. I sleep with earplugs, but the noise can still keep me awake.

In the past I have tried other noise machines that didn't work for me--things like "rainfall" cds or electronic noise machines with similar nature sounds. The problem was that they play a loop of sound, and you can hear a pattern as the loop replays. Once there's a pattern, there's something to pay attention to, and your mind does not tune it out well. This machine generates pure "white noise," which I hoped would be more helpful.

The product is the size and shape of a fat smoke detector. Two things surprised me when I first received it. First, it was quieter than I thought it would be--even the loudest setting seems quieter than a window air conditioner. Even still, my husband complained he wouldn't be able to sleep with "all that noise." (He got used to it within a day or two). It sounds something like a fan--a rush of air. Although you can adjust the volume and tone somewhat, the highest volume is also the highest pitch. Personally I wish it had a deeper tone.
