Sound Oasis is a unique sound relaxation product that allows you to create your very own sound environment. By bathing your room with the world's most authentic sounds of nature, Sound Oasis blocks out irritating noises and creates a peaceful atmosphere so you fall asleep easier, get higher quality sleep, enhance concentration and feel more alert throughout the day. Sound Oasis is also a proven tool for coping with the effects of tinnitus. Sound Oasis represents the next generation in sound conditioners by incorporating the world's first "sound card" technology which enables users to add new sounds to their Sound Oasis unit by simply inserting an optional memory card containing 6 different sounds. Incorporating a multi position timer (with 4 selections: continuous, 30, 60, and 90 minutes), a unique "gradual off" volume reduction feature for a peaceful decrease in sound volume, a rotary on/off volume control, headphone jack and an off resume button that stops the unit or repeats your last played sequence at the touch of a button, Sound Oasis is a perfect bedside companion. Sound Oasis also features an omni directional reflective speaker that projects the sound from the back of the unit for rich, deep sound. The unit's unique design allows the unit to be mounted to a wall, used flat on its back, or in an upright position for minimal use of table space. Sound Oasis can be powered by 4 "AA" batteries (not included) for traveling, or by an AC adapter (included) for convenient use at home or the office.

My criteria in choosing this unit were the following: It had to be lightweight, a shape that made it easy to pack, must be able to use batteries, able to run continuously, loud enough to hear, and the most important thing to me were that it had to accept headphones.
We only use the white noise setting on our machines, so extra sounds didn’t mean much to me, but the opinions of other customers were important. This unit was rated highly by other consumers and had every feature that I needed. Honestly, it was the perfect choice for us.
Since purchasing the Sound Oasis S-550-05, it has stayed primarily at the lake house.
It keeps my husband and me sleeping through most of the noises, such as cars and trucks driving by. However, neither it, nor any machine out there can block the neighbor’s chain saw very early in the morning, nor the crazy blackbird that kept hitting every window each morning, trying to fight his reflection. But we don’t hear our guests when they get up to use the bathroom or their grandchildren playing in the sunroom.
I’ve packed the unit up and taken it along to hotels and to Hawaii and it has helped immensely since I don’t normally sleep well in hotels. If my husband gets up early and wants to watch TV, I plug in the headset and go right back to sleep. So far, I haven’t had to use batteries in it because the cord has reached an outlet everywhere we have been.
Some people complain about noise loops in various machines, but I have not noticed that at all.
I recently had to stay in the hospital for 3+ days. Since I expected to have a roommate, I brought along my headphones. Every hospital stay I’ve had has been noisy with fire doors slamming and all the noise from people in the halls. I’d forgotten about the beeping machines, so I was very happy that I brought the headphones along. There were plenty of nearby outlets, so I sent the batteries home with my husband. During this hospital stay, I was in a great deal of pain the entire time, and every time I moved, machines beeped. My Sound Oasis S-550-05 and headphones kept me from going off the deep end. The surgeon gave me a cassette player with meditations to listen to, but it was no help when I tried to sleep, while my Sleep Oasis got me snoozing.
I highly recommend the Sound Oasis S-550-05 Sound Therapy System. If I were scoring the unit on a 1-10 scale, I’d give it a 9.5. For me, the only complaint about the unit is that it will not hold your last selection when you shut it off. So when I turn it on, I need to hit the white noise button selection. It’s a small thing, but since I only use white noise, I wish that it would stay set.
A couple of weeks after returning home from the hospital, I unpacked the bag that had my unit in it, and realized that the base to hold it upright was missing. I contacted Sound Oasis to ask if I could purchase one, and Tina in Customer Service shipped one out to me at no charge and it arrived in less than a week from my original email. Now that’s Top-Notch Customer Service! You can bet that the next time I need another white noise machine, it will be one made by Sound Oasis.
I am very disappointed. I purchased it specifically for the ocean sounds. I have never heard an ocean sound like this and I have heard three oceans in the last couple of years. The beginning of the wave sound is great and then it goes to a gurgling sound that not only is not beautiful but it is disgusting (to put it mildly)! Then I tried wind . . . I love wind . . . it sounds like someone is walking on a belted exercise walking machine going different speeds. The crickets are nice, but I don't want to listen to crickets all year. The stream sounds like someone turned on a spigot and forgot to turn it off, very little sound changes at all. The white noise I'm not interested it. All in all, the noises are enough to turn me off of the machine.
Then there are the problems with the on/off/volume knob and the timer knob. There should be an on/off knob and a volume knob or button. Every time it is turned on you have to adjust the volume which, in this era, is ridiculous. My last complaint is the timer knob . . . you can't see the tiny, tiny printing on the knob without cheater glasses (the kind you pay one dollar for at the dollar store) and even then they aren't very legible. I have 20/20 vision (after a yearly checkup) without reading glasses and there is nothing wrong with my hearing says an ears, nose and throat specialist after hearing tests in the last 6 months so I feel this is a fair evaluation of the product.
I must say the design is nice, it was packaged by the manufacturer quite well and I received it within 2 days of my order date with Prime. But I am so disappointed that this newer model was nothing like the one I enjoyed during my visits to my cranial massage therapist every two weeks.

All the sounds are good, just a small amount to choose from.
The ability to have the machine on all night and you press the centre button to silence it was good feature for me, however that centre button is hard to press if it's not backed up against something like the wall.
The best stand out feature about this whole unit to me is the fact there is absolutely no light. No power light, no time to flicker, it keeps the room pitch black the way I like it.
Would buy this unit again in a heartbeat.
Highly recommend this system.
