As of late, I’ve worked in audio books to soothe me into sleep, and I often meditate to either help me ease off initially or to aid me when I awake in the middle of the night. Audio books work on a number of levels, because for me being a light sleeper, any creek or crackle of noise can bring me out of even my deepest of slumbers. They also work nicely because they keep my mind off of anything that might be troubling me in my mind. But there is also a flip side to using an audio book as a sleep aid, in that if the book is good enough, it might keep you up half the night because you’re much too interested in the content.
The Dohm works easy enough, as you plug it in, turn it on high or low, and then twist the circular device until you find the sound that works best for you. The Dohm is assembled in the USA, and it comes in there color options, and even a model made for babies. All in all, as I tested the Dohm Classic, incorporating it into my sleep pattern, I found it to be quite relaxing. The device uses a fan-based white noise that eased me into sleep while masking most of the background noise that had plagued me recently. Similar to how listening to nature sounds (waves, birds, rivers, etc.) promotes a natural atmosphere for an easy sleep. I don’t really have any to criticize, as it’s a simple device that performs as advertised.
