Best Sound Therapy Machines for Tinnitus
Sound therapy machines can be an excellent tool to drown out distracting environmental noise or create pleasant background music that helps mask internal distractions like loud TVs and computers. They’re especially popular among those suffering from tinnitus, a condition which causes an ongoing ringing in the ears.
The ideal sound therapy machines are small enough to fit on your nightstand and boast features like alarm clocks, timers, and dimmer switches. These portable units can be plugged in or run off AA batteries so you can take them with you anywhere.
Pure Enrichment’s Wave Sleep Therapy Sound Machine, offering six high-fidelity sound settings to help you drift off in comfort. Its modern design blends in with any decor and can serve as a sleep aid for adults or children, or even serve as a tool to manage anxiety or stress.
It also features a USB port, battery meter that alerts you when to recharge, and sleep timer that shuts the unit off after 15 or 30 minutes of inactivity. But perhaps most impressive of all is Pure Enrichment’s industry-leading five-year warranty – giving you peace of mind that this device will function optimally and last for years to come.
The Ecotones Duet Sound Therapy Machine stands apart from other sound machines on the market by being able to “listen” to your environment to detect unwanted or disruptive sounds and then remixing those original recordings with its proprietary SoundStories technology for a more complex and richer version.
This feature is convenient as it allows you to tailor the experience according to your individual requirements. Furthermore, its multiple SoundStories can generate a wider variety of sounds and the device is small enough for bedside tables (it runs on AC power or AA batteries).
