THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT STAY ON longer than the "timer options" provide. We have 3 other Conair sound machines that have a timer option IF you want to use it, but you have an option as to whether or not you do. This new model WILL NOT STAY ON FOR MORE THAN AN HOUR (or less, depending on how the timer is set). If that's the amount of time you'd like, great, but if you want a machine to play all night long (esp. important when children and babies are sleeping!), do not buy this!! I even called Conair to make sure there wasn't a way to turn the timer off, and the associate told me they've had tons of complaints because the packaging mentions the timer but doesn't say that you can't leave the machine on continually. I had to return it to the store for a refund. As for the sound that this product makes, it's fine.
Was very excited about this product until I received it. Would have been perfect had it had a function to leave it on all night. The timer was for 15, 30, 45, 60 minutes.... but I wanted it to play all night. Oh well.
This sound machine has no option to leave it on all night. You HAVE to set the timer on 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes. There is no way to leave it on all night. The box says absolutely nothing about that. I woke up every single time this machine abruptly went quiet on me throughout the night. It's going back to the store asap.
Was surprised with the volume being as good as it is! Can be turned down quite low if you want to. Buttons are very easy to use. Timer has settings of 15/30/45/& 60 min. I doubt that I will ever use the night-lite it has, but atleast it's something to consider & is optional on whether or not you want to use it. I read several reviews before buying this product. Several people had complained that they wanted something that would work all night. But it clearly indicates here online about the times I've mentioned above.And also states it in the brochure that comes with it. I just love this machine & find it to be very beneficial as I'm a light sleeper to start with & have been for many years. I find this machine to be very lightweight, easy to use & a very good machine for the small amount of money I paid for it. I would however suggest that when ordering online, the customer should take the option of picking it up at the store & not have it delivered to their home to save some money. Also you should know that it can be picked up in the lay-away dept. in the store & not at the customer service counter.
I initally liked the fact that this product "stood up" and was very compact. I read the box carefully before purchasing it in the store. What I didn't find out til 12:00 midnight in the hotel was that this had a timer only feature. I was VERY upset. Needless to say, I was up almost every hour turning it back on. When I got up the next morning - it went back to the store. Will be searching for another sound machine - but not this one ever again!!!!
This is the first of these, that had a power cord, so I Don't have to buy and throw away batteries. there are more sounds, and it was cheaper than the one that I ordered from amazon. Thank you.
I was really excited about this product an all the sounds are great! Also a great price but unfortunately you can't leave it on all night. The longest option is 60 min which doesn't really work for what I wanted it for. I was definitely disappointed in that.
I have had to sleep with the sound of a air purifier fan for so long now that I need the sound to sleep. I don't need the air purifier at my new house anymore, but I can't sleep without the sound. I bought the Sleep Therapy about a week ago and so far I actually fall asleep quicker and I am sure I am saving on electricity to run the unit. I have it set to the longest time available of 1 hour. It has settings 15, 30, 45, and 60 minutes. You cannot leave it on longer unless you hit the start button again once it shuts off. My six year old loves to play with all the sounds. His favorite is the heartbeat. I like all the sounds, but use white noise as it is closest to the sound of the fan it is replacing. The volume can go quite loud. No worries about whether or not you will hear the sounds, you should have no problem even from across the room.
I bought this for our newborn and it IS somewhat helpful except the LONGEST it stays on is an hour. I was pretty disappointed to figure this out once it was shipped. MOST machines stay on ALL night long. I didn't think the timer feature meant that it ONLY stayed on for that long. There are NO options to leave it running all night long...but it wasn't expensive enough for me to bother with the returning process and I didn't want to pay shipping. It works fine and we haven't had problems but the whole point of a sleep machine is for it to run all night long. I wouldn't bother recommending this and wouldn't have bought it had I known it only stays on for 60 minutes max.
We are returning the product because we need a sound machine that will stay on until WE decide to turn it off. This machine will only stay on for a maximum time of 1 hour and with my tinnitus I need a machine that will stay on all night so I can sleep.
many people complained the unit would'nt stay on all night and thats true. It only has a timer for 60, 30 , 15 min, however my wife and I generally fall asleep with in an hour. but we found that if we are still awake the start button is big and easy to push to simply start the unit for another hour.
Great product!! Has plug so no need for constant batteries. It has awsome sounds like rainforest, heartbeat, and your basic white noise. There are either 10 or 12 sounds. Incredible value for only $12.00!!!
This sound machine is easy to use and has a nice night light. Sound can be on for not longer than 60 minutes.
I agree with the consensus, did not realize it only ran for an hour. Makes it worthless except as a night light.
I like the small size. Has great sound volume range. Easy ordering and fast shipment @ Walmart.com!
I use this device in my camper that I visit on weekends as it can get loud at night there when I'm trying to sleep. Some of the "sounds" are a bit fake sounding, and some of them actually annoy me more than help, the repetitive ones kinda have the opposite affect of what i'm going for. Some instances you can hear the repetition in the sequence like a broken record. But i've found a couple of sounds that work for me and the thing is great!! Slept like a baby last time I used it!
We apparently did not notice that the auto-off function cannot be turned off..... my wife wants it to play all night and it turns off after an hour.
I like the Sound machine for the soothing sounds it gives out. The only problem so far is it's hard to get the volumn just right. Otherwise it's great.
A great value for the price. It is a timed model which is what I was seeking to purchase. The upright/compact design, timer and night light features make this unit great for a travel/diaper bag for baby. I purchased one as a gift for my niece and it travels with her daughter. The choice of sounds aid in soothing and aiding her daughter, who has colic, to sleep. Baby prefers heartbeat and thunderstorm while as adults she and her husband like the thunderstorm and train (no whistles...just rail car passage on tracks/almost a rocking lull). This unit works just as well as my personal expensive "sleep therapy" model with construction on pretty much the same level if not a bit better. Only major differences would be $100 price less than my spa type model and the timer. This unit cannot be played continuously and must be reset for times over one hour.
I am giving this only 3 stars because I didn't realize you can't use it with batteries - which is more convenient when traveling. I also found some of the sounds annoying and/or strange. The more expensive one - different brand - was not available so I bought this instead. Prefer to spend a bit more and get one that plays for as long as I want and takes batteries but my friend was happy with it.
