I bought a couple of these from the earlier postings. I'm very happy with them. Our use cases:

1. 3-yr-old sleeping to drown out noises to keep her from being woken up
2. My wife MUST have a fan going to sleep for the noise but she is always cold. This has replaced the fan at a MUCH lower energy consumption and the background noise (we use a brown noise) is MUCH more effective than the fan has been for decades.

Other things to mention:
- I can use it with a smart switch and it remembers its settings.
- It can get MUCH louder than we would ever want it to get without sounding distorted.
- It has a good range of brown -> pink -> white noise. I think we go about 3 notches up from brown towards pink.
- It's quite small.
- It's "nature sounds" are kinda pathetic. Don't buy it for them - buy it for the brown/pink/white noise. Or at least that's my opinion, maybe somebody else likes them.

You're not interpreting the studies correctly. It's about the decibel level, not the white noise itself. White noise machines were used because they are popular with parents and used frequently, but the focus is them as potentially damaging to hearing. If your child has hearing problems, then speech and language delays are a virtual certainty because you can't hear what others are saying or how you are saying them. It does not mean that they are likely to be the cause because of white noise (different sounds are different wavelengths, that's it; it's not composed of something different).

White noise, along with virtually every other soothing method, is used because it recreates the environment the baby is used to: the uterus. Listen to an ECG or an ultrasound or heartrate monitor for a child in utero. What's the literal constant sound they are hearing? The wooshing of blood flowing. It's the first sound they hear and it is absolutely constant during fetal development. It's also the same mechanism that makes "Shhhhhhh" effective. It's why people used ticking clocks muffled by a blanket or pillow (don't do this with a newborn, nothing should be in the crib except for the child at that age) because it simulates the heartbeat.

Why do you rock a baby? Because it simulates that same physical environment where you're moving around all day based on your mother's movements while you float there. Ask a pregnant woman when her baby is most active, and you'll usually hear that it's when she's laying down and NOT moving. Why swaddle? Because the uterus is a tight space. Why do people get in the fetal position? Because the same reason. And sucking your thumb, which is learned during fetal development in preparation for feeding.

Your stuff about neurological development is also misleading and inaccurate. Pruning goes on all the time throughout your life. Synaptic activity is neurons talking to each other; that has nothing to do with anything related to white noise. You're reading this, feeling what you're feeling, moving what you're moving, breathing, digesting, everything because of synaptic activity you're completely unaware of, even if deaf. That's like saying that if you take the color magenta out of a spectrum that you've removed the entire rainbow. The learning of new types of sounds stops towards the end of toddlerhood for everyone (complicated to explain). If any sound is played that prevents a child from hearing something, then the child won't hear it. It has nothing to do with white noise. Loud = can't hear anything less loud.

TL;DR - White noise machines are effective, anything too loud is bad.

These are great devices. They're built so can produce a deeper authentic sound versus something like a phone or Google Home device.

Pretty sure this exact deal has been posted before by other staffers a couple months ago.

Seems like a decently well known company, and I bit last time.
for those unfamiliar with white noise speakera...Honestly it's like an ok speaker that plays preset sounds.

I think pretty popular among the young parent crowd to help keep kids from being easily disturbed while asleep. other deals posting this have been quite popular so probably plenty of SDer experience to weigh in.

Been waiting for another deal like this to show up so I can get it for my sister for her newborn baby. I've had mine since Christmas and have had it on ever since. I love these little guys.

Inferior to the Dohm IMO. Having a real fan to create the noise makes all the difference. These are essentially phone apps that can get a little louder than your phone.

yes, i do agree that dohm makes a more realistic, natural sound (that's more soothing in a way), but the advantages of lectrofan is better volume management, more sound options (although, some are just obnoxious), and draws less power.

As said in previous comments, I bought the Dohm and this, and had to return the Lectrofan because the noise sounds too artificial.

If you like a fan noise, or like an air conditioner etc, and have slept with one all your life, this will NOT sound the same. The Dohm actually has a fan, this is a speaker and you can really tell a difference.

This used to work with my smart plug and Google home to control by voice. However, now it doesn't turn on (I hear the click though) by voice, only turns off.

I use this in a waiting room at a medical office. It's absolutely fantastic and the slight variations in white noise allow me to get that "just right" tone. Bought it new for 50, no brainer at this price.

I disagree. There are multiple sound options on the Lectrofan and while not all sound great to me, there are 4 or 5 that sound great to me. It gets much, much louder than the Dohm unit. The Lectrofan can drown out almost anything and there are no loops. With the Dohm by itself I can still hear floorboards creak or people opening doors in the house, but it helps. I actually use both when sleeping. The Dohm by the night stand and the Lectrofan a few feet away. I find I get the best sleep with both of them on.

That's how we use 2 of ours (TP-Link smart plugs). No issues yet.
