LectroFan ClassicLectroFan noise machine

LectroFan Classic(49.00) is the noise machine I use at home. This personal white noise and fan sound machine ensures a better night’s sleep and peaceful rest because it will stay on all night. The LectroFan offers twenty unique digital sounds to mask noises, and you can choose from ten different electric fan sounds and ten variations of pure white noise (including pink and brown noise variations). All sounds can be personalized with pin-point volume control to select across a wide range of sound levels — from a whisper to many times louder than mechanical fan-based conditioners. When the kids have company I can turn this up loud enough that I cannot hear them. 

ArtNaturals Sound Machine and DiffuserArtNaturals sound machine and diffuser

The ArtNaturals sound machine ($31) is also an essential oil diffuser with changing colored lights. Though it doesn’t have as many sound choices as some of the other machines — just six — you’re getting two products in one. 


SnoozSNOOZ White Noise Sound Machine

Snooz ($89.99) contains an actual fan inside its acoustic base that plays a constant stream of fan noise. Noises range from the sound of a table fan to the louder noise of an airplane. The Snooz app lets you personalize settings to automatically turn on your choice of fan noise when you need it. 

Sound + Sleep MiniAdaptive Sound Technologies Sound + Sleep Mini

Sound + Sleep Mini ($76) has something for every restless sleeper. With 48 white/pink/brown noises, fan sounds, and real nature sounds like crickets, whales, rain, and thunder there’s something for everyone. Although if you sleep to crickets I am going to assume you are not right.  Thanks to its advanced technology it responds to the environment and automatically adjusts its volume for the ambient noise in the room. There is also a timer, so it doesn’t go all night.


Dohm ClassicDohm Sound Machine

Dohm ($47) makes just one sound: a fan-based white noise. It does, however, have two different speed options. They do have some newer ones with more options that I’ve heard are good but haven’t experienced myself. 

Pure Enrichments Wave Sleep Therapy MachinePure Enrichments Wave Sleep Therapy Machine

Pure Enrichment’s Wave sleep therapy machine ($30) makes six hi-fi sounds — white noise, a fan, the ocean, rain, a stream, and a summer’s night. The timer can be set for 15, 30, or 60 minutes, and the volume is easily adjusted. It also has a USB port, so you can charge your phone or tablet from the device.


So there you have it. Those are the best noise machines on the market right now. If you have an Alexa you can play “rain on a tent” from Alexa for ambient noise. I’m sure the Google Home probably has something too.
