From the Manufacturer
The Dohm-DS by Marpac is the Original Sound Conditioner
This is what Serious Sleep is all about.
The Dohm effectively masks unwanted noises and creates a calming sound environment, making it easier to concentrate, relax, or get some serious sleep. Dohm produces the soothing 'shushhh' sound of rushing air without the disturbance of actual moving air. It consists of a compact adjustable acoustic housing surrounding a two-speed electric motor with a unique asymmetrical fan, for greater flexibility in tone and volume. This design allows Dohm to produce a completely natural constant yet customizable sound - Marpac Signature Sound - using no digital loops or recordings. This simple, effective sound conditioner is able to block distracting noises across a range of frequencies for deeper sleep, relaxation, and concentration; it also helps protect confidentiality in places where sensitive information is shared. 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. Recommended for infants, restless sleepers, shift workers, students, spouses of snorers, apartment dwellers, and many others.
Easy to Use
The UL-listed Marpac Dohm-DS has an 8-foot power cord and runs on a standard US 120-volt household current. It is simple and easy to use, yet customizable. First choose 'high' or 'low' setting with the flip of a switch, then fine-tune the sound to your preferred tone and volume simply by twisting the cap and collar.
Durable, Lightweight Construction
For quality, durability, and easy care, the Marpac Dohm-DS is assembled 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. The Marpac Dohm-DS is backed by a one-year limited warranty.
Life is noisy - Dohm can help. Love how you sleep, love how you feel, love how you live!
Masks disruptive sounds from outside and inside the home.
Whether you use it for sleep, concentration, or privacy, the Marpac Dohm-DS keeps distracting environmental noise from interrupting your day or night. It's especially helpful in cities, apartment buildings, dorm rooms, and hotels. Also great for creaky floors, dripping faucets, loud AC units, and pet noise -- or if it's just too quiet!
Helps babies (& their families) fall asleep and stay asleep.
The soothing sound of the Dohm-DS lulls babies to sleep and produces a consistent, steady sound to mask noises which might otherwise wake them - naptime or nighttime. The sound of a Dohm is soon part of baby's sleep routine, so it becomes a portable source of comforting, familiar sound, anywhere.
Keeps all members of the household happy.
Tired of tip-toeing or watching TV with subtitles? The Marpac Dohm-DS lets you have a life after your baby, spouse, or other housemate goes to bed. It's also great for people on different sleep schedules, for shift workers who sleep while the rest of the world is awake, and for the many individuals with bed partners who snore.
All-natural, non-digital, non-drug, simple sleep solution.
Marpac Dohm-DS is the official sound conditioner of the National Sleep Foundation. The NSF recognizes the usefulness of white noise both for masking disruptive sounds in the bedroom environment and also as a soothing part of the bedtime routine, and Marpac as the recognized leader in sound machines.
Simply plug it in and turn it on. Rotate the cap and collar to adjust tone and volume.

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.
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.Read more ›
At this point you have two choices: Leave the nice guy who makes seriously disturbing electric garden-tool noises in his sleep. Or figure out how to block out the noise. (Don't move into another bedroom or onto the couch. You need that pheromone bonding while you sleep in order to keep the magic alive!)
I tried earplugs. Didn't work. I tried pillows over my head. Didn't work. I tried kicking him in his beautiful, beefy, hairy thighs. Worked for about ten seconds.
And then I tried the Marpac SleepMate. It has kept me out of the condo market. Seriously.
(I should disclose, however, that on nights when he seems to be running the leaf blower WITH the power saw WHILE WHISTLING, I combine the Marpac with earplugs--Amazing!)
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.Read more ›
