    The Marpac Dohm DS, known as the best white noise machine since 1962, (that’s a long time in business in anyones eyes – so they must be doing something right!) is a dual speed sound machine that generates soothing white noise and masks unwanted sounds to create a sense of calm and relaxation. Many people, young and old, have been using & recommending the Marpac White Noise Machine to achieve a better, more restful night's sleep for many years.

    White noise sounds like rushing air and is perfect for adults, children, and babies who are having trouble sleeping. Continuous white noise machines are also commonly used in office environments to mask out distracting sounds, improve concentration, and increase privacy.

    The Dohm has evolved over the years to make it the world leader in personal white noise machines & features two power levels as well as the ability to adjust the tone and volume of the white noise generator.

    A Natural White Noise Machine

    A lot of sound machines use short "loops" that simply repeat the same sound over and over.  Playing these small bursts of sound can often be quite annoying over a period of time. This can often result in creating more anxiety rather than relaxation!

    The Dohm DS uses natural white noise machine as it contains an actual fan inside. The Marpac White Noise Machine is unlike mp3 downloads, CD’s or smart phone aps in that it does not use loops or artificial white noise.

     

    What is white noise?

    In a nutshell, white noise is a unique type of signal that is used to mask background sounds. White noise provides a soothing, calm sound that helps to obscure unwanted sounds and is commonly used to encourage healthy sleep.

    If noise hinders you from achieving a good night sleep or triggers you to wake up whilst already asleep, white noise can be particularly beneficial. Sound machines are valuable whether you need help drifting off to sleep or to assist staying asleep.

    How does white noise work?

    The idea of adding more noise to your sleeping environment to promote sleep may sound counter productive, but it works. White noise blends the external sounds (barking dog,traffic etc) into the overall background noise, so your brain pays less attention.

    Neuroscientist Seth S. Horowitz, believes that our hearing has evolved as an alarm system, and continues to work even when we are asleep. Most people become conditioned to most background sounds unless they are highlighted on our rational radar as needing attention. 

    With some people it is not necessarily the volume of noise that that keeps us awake but the context of the sound. This is why some people can easily fall asleep in the middle of a crowded club. I am not one of those people! Similarly, a dog barking in the distance can cause a person to startle in their sleep.

    Sound masking is achieved when you disguise the noise, by adding white noise to your bedroom to 'mask' the frequencies of the white noise signal.

    Another analogy of this, again using light… Picture yourself in a dark room where there is no light, now imagine that a torch is being shone on your face. What happens? You notice the light immediately right? However, if you were already in a well it room, the light of the torch would go unnoticed because the bright lights, already in the room, would be masking it.

    What About Music to Aid in Sleep?

    Extensive research has been carried out to ascertain the effectiveness of music improving quality of sleep. Music has been shown to be successful in improving quality of sleep. However, studies have proven that music can stimulate emotional reactions in a person. These responses, associations and memories can actually hinder rather than promote efforts to sleep.

    A wide range of frequencies of sound is required to mask unwanted noise. Music does not contain the range required to do so. As such it has been concluded that music is generally more suited for rest and relaxation rather than as a means to 'block out' other sounds to achieve a restful sleep.

    While turning on a fan or keeping the air conditioner running can produce a constant "hum", these devices typically produce sound in a repeated pattern, which is distracting in itself. Plus, a ceiling fan or air conditioner does not mask out unwanted noises from neighbours or the street.  A white noise machine is a much more effective alternative and provides the perfect background noise for sleep.

    The Dohm, formerly known as the Sleepmate sound machine, is a small, lightweight and portable white noise machine, which makes it the perfect travel companion. You can easily take it with you to create a calming and peaceful environment. 

    Commonly used for office privacy and sound masking of conversations in adjacent rooms. If you do not want someone to hear conversations inside a room, you simply place it directly outside the room so people will hear the white noise, not the conversation. 

    Creating the consistent smooth sound of rushing air to help control unwanted intermittent or continuous noise from;

    • Traffic
    • Nearby Conversation
    • Noisy Neighbours
    • Dogs Barking

    Perfect for:

    Helping Babies Sleep

    Partners of Snorers

    • Shift workers
    • Apartment living
    • Day Care Centres/Nurseries
    • Doctor Surgeries
    • Loud Office Environments
    • Tinnitus Sufferers

    Unlike digitally created white noise makers, the Dohm DS produces a natural white noise, the most popular white maker that produces a singular sound of rushing air.

    What about Baby & White Noise Machines?

    Many a parents sanity (& sleep) has been saved simply because of white noise machines for babies.

    White sound machines produce a calming effect on babies. Have you ever found the sound of the vacuum, hair dryer or washing machine has a calming effect on your baby, especially if they are unsettled? Ever wondered why?

    Babies are used to muffled noise in the womb, when they are born into the world it is a huge audiological adjustment. Wombs are noisy little homes and newborns are used to sounds, they are easily startled by sudden loud changes in noise become startled them from their sleep.

    The Dohm-DS operates at 60 dB, the same volume as normal conversation, making it an extremely safe, natural and effective sleep aid that is not in any way damaging to hearing.

    What are the experts saying about babys’ and white noise machines:

    "`White noise,’ such as the continuous, monotonous sound of a vacuum cleaner or a recording of ocean waves, can often relax and lull your baby.... “

    -Mayo Clinic, Complete Book of Pregnancy & Baby's First Year

    "A baby who cannot relax can be helped to do so by a variety of constant rhythmical stimuli.... it will work if the trouble is some kind of general and diffuse irritability or tenseness which is preventing a tired baby relaxing into sleep. The burring sound of a fan or heater works excellently. So does the sound of a car engine." 

    -Penelope Leach, Your Baby & Child From Birth to Age Five

    "Many Babies Cry because they were born 3 months too soon! As helpful as [womb simulation] is for calm babies, it is essential for fussy ones... Every traditional baby-calming technique around the world imitates the sensations of the womb."

    -Dr. Harvey Karp, M.D., The Happiest Baby on the Block

    “Sounds that involve all the frequencies audible to the human ear and are continuous and monotonous are very effective in settling the restless baby and keeping her asleep.... The lower, more monotonous, and rhythmical the tone, the more soothing.... Sound ridiculous? Not really. If you have ever had a fussy baby, you will try anything that works.”

    -William Sears, Keys to Calming the Fussy Baby

    People who have tried white noise machines are saying:

    White Noise Machine Reviews:

    "White noise helps me sleep too! It covers up the sound of the neighbours banging. And it helps our little one stop wriggling like crazy, as soon as we turn on her sound machine she realises its time to go to sleep. If you have a little one who has trouble sleeping I recommend that you buy a white noise machine and see the difference it can make for you." Anna…

    "I used to use a fan in LO's room, which created a white noise, it also masked any other noises that we created in the flat while he slept. Trouble is as soon the weather started to get cooler we couldn’t put the fan on. I am so grateful for finding our baby white noise machines from Sleep Buddy, back to peaceful nights for all the family! Thank you!" Jonathon...

    1. Peaceful sleep at last  star rating

      Posted by Christine Johnstone, Bedfordale WA. on 17th Oct 2017

      I have trouble sleeping due to a snoring husband and developed insomnia as a result. I purchased the sleep dohm because it produced a continuous white noise unlike a previous machine that had several sounds but they were on a loop which is in itself annoying as you can hear the gap when the loop starts again. With the Sleep Buddy there is no gap just a continual soothing sound. It took me only one night to get used to the sound and by the second night I was sleeping much better. My husband is getting treatment for his snoring but this machine has certainly helped me get a better nights sleep. I would recommend this machine to anyone who needs to block out noise and be soothed to sleep.

    2. Thank goodness for this machine!  star rating

      Posted by Jane Sankey, Sydney NSW on 6th Oct 2017

      I live in a unit block and the gentleman who lives above me works shiftwork. When I am asleep, he is awake.
      When he gets ready for work each night the noise above is horrendous and wakes me. I hear every footstep and him moving around in his kitchen.
      I then find it so difficult to get back to sleep.
      A neighbour recommended this exact machine that they purchased from Sleep Buddy a few years ago, I am so grateful and have not looked back.
      Sleep again at last!

    3. Helps block my husbands snoring  star rating

      Posted by Justine Sparrow on 6th Sep 2017

      I use earplugs but have never found any that seem to block enough sound to block out my husbands snoring. I've continued to persist and feel that the earplugs are better than not at all.
      I recently spoke to Tammy at Ear Store who was very helpful and explained how earplugs work and that there is nothing that will block all noise. She suggested I try the white noise machine in conjunction with my earplugs & voila... we're onto a winner.
      I believe that my white noise machine and earplugs do block everything out! I can't believe how well I'm now sleeping and how poorly I've slept for so many years.
      She also sent me some samples of different earplugs to try and I love the Macks Originals.
      Peace at last.
      One very happy customer.

    4. I don't have to sleep in the spare room  star rating

      Posted by Robert Nig on 1st Sep 2017

      I bought this as a last attempt before my wife was about to make me move to the spare bedroom to sleep at night.
      I snore (apparently quite loud) and my wife can't sleep at night.
      She wears earplugs but this still is not enough.
      I spoke with Tammy from Sleep Buddy and she suggested we try the white noise machine.
      I am still in our bedroom sleeping next to my wife.
      Thank you Sleep Buddy.
      I would recommend this machine to anyone else in the same situation.

    5. Very happy with this machine!  star rating

      Posted by Shawn Marsden on 1st Sep 2017

      I used to download aps on my phone to get to sleep and a neighbour/friend recommended I try this machine.
      I wish I had found this sooner!
      It's so much better than using my phone and has a much clearer less obtrusive sound.
      It's great, give it a try.

    6. Noise Reduction  star rating

      Posted by Kevin Redmond, Marrickville, NSW on 22nd Aug 2017

      I purchased the White Noise machine for my new acupuncture clinic in Petersham - we were concerned by the traffic noise and noise from one treatment room to the other.
      We use the White Noise machine in between the clinic rooms and it has worked an absolute treat - patients are very happy with the reduction in noise since we purchased your product.
      Thank you

    7. Wonderful product! Business is picking up again!  star rating

      Posted by Kevin Redmond, Marrickville, NSW on 22nd Aug 2017

      I run a massage business from a room in a physiotherapy clinic.
      The noise from the surrounding treatment rooms and waiting room is not at all conducive to a relaxed atmosphere in my treatment room, even with music on. I had to have my music up so loud to drown out the interruptions that that was creating a problem in itself.
      I noticed quite a fall in business and my clients were not rebooking because of this.
      in now have the white noise unit and soft music playing together and my clients are relaxed and happy again.
      I'd recommend this product to others in similar situations.

    8. Great for drowning out traffic noise during the day  star rating

      Posted by Jan, on Lutwyche Road, Brisbane, QLD. on 17th May 2017

      I purchased this product to assist with daytime outside traffic noise. As I live on a very, very busy main road, and not with assisting me with sleep. I'd been using a fan, as I moved here at the beginning of summer. But now that it’s becoming cooler, it was making my living area very cold. So, I needed something other then a cooling device. Well, this little unit works, as it muffles out most of the incessant traffic sounds. In fact enough, that I'm not disturb by it. Plus, the inside temperature remains pleasant, because it only makes the sound of a fan, and not the wind force. Please note, I also have triple glaze glass, which is fortunate, as the rush of vehicles is huge. Re using it to assist with getting sleep, it’s not loud enough for me, but as I shared above, it was never intended to help me with this.

    9. Wonderful Sleeps Heading your way  star rating

      Posted by Brittany, Fitzroy North, Victoria on 27th Feb 2017

      From someone who has slept with a fan for most of her life this is a absolute gem. It creates wonderfully adaptable white noise without any air movement, especially handy during the cooler winter months, and great volume that doesn't drive my hubby crazy.

    10. Great help for bad sleepers  star rating

      Posted by Steph, NSW on 7th Feb 2017

      Such a simple but effective device to help sleep through noisy night/roadworks. The best thing is it can be plugged into a power source and run all night so if you wake up in the middle of the night it is still on and helps put you back to sleep again. Dual speed is also useful when you don't need to block out such loud noises. Would be nice if it was a little smaller in size, but a great device nonetheless.
