    There are many sound machines available on the market for those who want to go to sleep faster at night, and the Conair Serene Sound Therapy device is one of the options. There is nothing to be blown away by with this unit as it only includes 6 sounds to choose from, and the features are very limited. It’s true that you couldn’t ask for much from a unity that costs $19, being the less expensive model we have reviewed.    

Sounds

This is one of the few sound machines that don’t include a white noise feature that could mask the disturbing noises in the background. Besides, is includes the fewest sounds compared to other models, in a total of 6, namely summer night, babbling brook, heartbeat, tropical rainforest, rainfall, and ocean waves. An aspect that makes this sound machine look low-quality is the fact that the sounds are very short and poorly edited, so you can sometimes hear them repeat.

Features

You can easily control the volume of the sound with the rotating knob located on the front of the device which also works as an On/Off control. There is also a timer setting that enables you to set the unit to play for 15, 30, or 60 minutes. Once you are bored with a sound, you can go the next one by simply pressing a button. There is no alarm on the unit, considering there is no LCD screen to show the time and date.

Design and accessories

In terms of design, this sound machine is very attractive and looks good on your nightstand with its white exterior with a gray ring around the center. Measuring 2.5 x 6.5”, it is a relatively small device, but the 2,5 pounds weight make it one of the heaviest. It features a front speaker and several buttons under it to allow you to control the volume, set the timer, and select the sound. The sounds are written on the housing and when you select one, the name lights up so you will know which sound it will play. Although the majority of the sound machines available on the market come with an adapter or a USB charger that power them, this model is an exception, as it operates solely on battery power. Even though it may seem like an advantage because you can take it anywhere without worrying about a power socket, it causes the inconvenience that you have to replace the batteries every time they drain. Plus, the unit doesn’t come with a set in the first place.

Ease of use

Since the unit doesn’t have many features, you won’t have any troubles in operating it, even if the lights are turned off. Additionally, the sounds and controls are written both in English and French, in case you are not familiar with the English language. At the same time, you have to always have some spare AAA batteries if you want to make sure you won’t find yourself in the situation of not being able to use the sound machine.

Warranty and support

The product is covered by a limited one-year warranty in case you have troubles with it, although most customers state they never needed to make use of the warranty. Conair also offers customer support you can enjoy the entire time you are using the device.

  1. I want to buy a sound machine to place in the nursery because my baby can’t seem to fall asleep without hearing sounds. Do you recommend this model for me?

    1. Yes, the model is an excellent choice to go with if you want to place it in your baby’s room. From the 6 soothing sounds that it can produce, we recommend that you go with the summer night or the ocean wave options as these are the most mellow and appropriate for small children.

      Hello, Mark. Yes, the controls feature a soft light that guides you in the dark, so you can easily use the unit without turning the light on.

  2. I want a sound machine that’s portable so I can use it at the office and whenever I go on a business trip. This model seems to be the right choice for what I need. I hope it won’t disappoint me.
