World’s Smallest White Noise Machine™ by Sound Oasis
White noise provides a lot of benefits for those who are looking for a better night’s rest – turning on a white noise machine when you slip into bed every night creates a ritual that helps signal to your brain that it’s time to stop thinking and go to sleep. This makes your body and brain relax, helping you fall asleep faster. Once in dreamland, white noise masks external noises that might make you wake up – cars honking, branches knocking on your window, animals scurrying around in your backyard. If you do wake up, the white noise will still be going, so it’ll help you fall right back asleep. All of this sounds absolutely wonderful!
To find out if the World’s Smallest White Noise Machine is as good as it sounds, Quench contributing editor Tod Stewart tested it out:
“This tiny device charges (or plays constantly) via USB. Juice it up, connect, insert supplied earphones and dial in your preferred tone (you have 10 to choose from), set the volume and drift. Great not only for assisting with sleep and helping the wearer concentrate, it will also help if – like me – you have developed tinnitus (that annoying ringing in the ears) from years of playing in VU-meter-popping rock bands.”
A quick search of white noise machines shows that a lot of them are larger units, designed to stay in one place. So if you’re a summer traveller, this means you have to leave your white noise at home. Unless you have the World’s Smallest White Noise Machine. This portable sound machine is small (1.6” x 1.8” x 0.75”) enough to fit in the palm of your hand and light (0.04lbs) enough to carry around with you when you travel. It’s handy clip works great on belts, pant loops, bag straps and wherever else you can clip for handy access.
The World’s Smallest White Noise Machine was made for travellers. You can use it at the hotel, on the plane, at the campground – anywhere really. It comes with a travel case and earbuds; the headphone jack is compatible with most headphones and portable speakers. The built-in rechargeable battery lasts up to 25 hours on a full charge. The USB charging cable (included in the box) works with any USB charger and you can plug it into your computer.
There are 10 different continuous tones on this tiny device that you can scroll through by holding down the sound selection button. Once you’ve found your favourite, you can pause and playback with the on/off button. Volume control is an old school dial that you rotate.
