Updated on June 27, 2012

Dohm-DS Dual Speed Sound Conditioner by Marpac is a device that emits consistent white noise, recreating the fan-like sound of gushing air. It is commonly used as a sleeping aid by those who have sleeping problems and can't sleep, or people who are light sleepers and want to get more sleep. Buy a sound conditioner online for uninterrupted deep sleep without paying a price that hurts the wallet. Scroll down for features and product review.

What is a sound conditioner?

For the uninitiated, a sound conditioner is a device which emits a noise with the sole purpose of cancelling or masking other noises. Sound conditioners are used in homes and offices for the purpose of eliminating background noise or to ensure privacy.

Do sound conditioners work?

The combination of aggressive promotional campaigns and ignorant buyers can lead to unhappy users. Before buying a sound conditioner, it is important to remember that these devices are built to drown and overpower background noise. They are not magic spells that remove all background sounds with the flick of a switch. Using a sound conditioner to sleep better is a gradual process during which a white noise masks other sounds which may be causing sleeping problems.

Sound Conditioner by Marpac emits white noise which dwarfs background noises. It is similar to the sound of gushing air emitted by a fan. Except in this case, the sound is pure and is free from mechanical noises that can be heard in ceiling or table fans.

The sound conditioner will help you get more sleep by emitting a soothing noise which is much similar to that of the 'whoosh' of gushing air. The Dohm-DS Dual Speed Sound Conditioner drowns out most sounds like noise of traffic, neighbors who party too much, snoring partners and chitter chatter from outside the bedroom.

Unlike other sound conditioners that you can buy online, this device is unique because it emits a continuous white noise. Similar but inferior products are often known to simply play digitally recorded loops which may not be as effective as a consistent sound.

It may be virtually impossible to completely eliminate sounds that are just too loud, for example the banging of a door or a crying baby. However the sound conditioner acts like a barrier which stops intrusive noises in disturbing a peaceful sleep.

Another key feature of Dohm-DS Dual Speed Sound Conditioner which sets it apart from other sleeping aids that can be bought online, is that it has a two speed operation. The dual speed function allows two levels of white noise. Users can increase the volume of the fan-like noise if background noises are too loud. On the other hand and in quieter environments, a lower volume can be maintained for a more peaceful and deep sleep.

One of the best things about buying the Dohm-DS by Marpac is that it is light and portable. It can be kept in the bedroom, office, baby's room, classrooms, study rooms and any other place where background noise is disturbing.

Because of its compact size and a weight of only a pound and a half, it can also be carried while travelling and can be used in motels, hotels or any other place where users can get access to an electrical outlet.

Dohm-DS Dual Speed Sound Conditioner by Marpac: How to use

The tone and volume of Dohm-DS Dual Speed Sound Conditioner can be adjusted by rotating the cap and the collar of the device.

Using this device almost a plug and play operation. Included in the box is an eight foot long power cord which will connect to any normal household power outlet. Once connected, the sound conditioner can be turned on by the black button type switch. The tone of the whooshing sound can be adjusted by simply rotating the top and the collar of the device to expose or hide its vents. It is best to refer to user manual provided by Marpac, included in the contents of your purchase.

Why buy a Sound Conditioner by Marpac?

  • It can be a terrific sleeping aid for students who live in shared apartments. A sound conditioner will help drown out chitter chatter from of the other occupants in the apartment.

  • White noise will generally screen out other omnipresent sounds that disturb sleep. Examples of which include traffic noises, the barks of an annoying neighborhood dog, neighbors who play loud music, chirpy birds and much more. A sound conditioner is a much quicker and easier solution rather than knocking on the doors of neighbors asking them to turn the volume down.

  • Sound conditioner by Marpac is great for travelers and jetsetters who find it difficult to sleep in motels and hotel rooms. The fan-like sound will allow restless travelers and workers to get more sleep on the run.

  • There are some people who have a keen sense of hearing. Even the bark of a dog five houses down the street can be all it takes to wake them up. In such cases, the consistent white noise of this particular device will restrict other noises to be heard by the light sleeper.

  • It is quite common for urban dwellers to be disturbed by sounds of wailing sirens, bin collection agencies, banter from pubs and many other noises peculiar to downtown. Buying a sound conditioner will remind urban dwellers of how peaceful it is to live in a countryside home, without having to move.

  • A sound conditioner will also help lower the intensity of the disturbing noise of snoring partners. It should be noted that for someone sleeping shoulder to shoulder with a very loud snorer, it may be difficult to entirely eliminate the snores. However the white noise will dampen out the loud snore and make it easier to get more sleep.

      This device sounds like it would work if you are a light sleeper like I am. I will look into it a little further. Thanks.
