    With the HDS-2000 Deep Sleep by Homedics which costs less than $90, you can finally have a good quality sleep. This convenient sleep sound device allows you to choose between 12 sleep sounds that are said to be unique and very comforting. What makes it even greater is that it comes with a sleep therapy option that integrated water or nature noises into white noise so that you’ll sleep peacefully at night. Here’s what you need to know about this machine.  

Sounds

The 12 sounds featured here can be put into three individual categories: water, nature and white noise. The water noises are thunderstorm, brook, and ocean but you can use the tone adjustment buttons to turn the tone sound all the way down so that at the thunderstorm sound the rain becomes more prominent. When you turn the tone down on the ocean sound you can minimize the white noise in the background and if you choose to turn it up you can hear more clearly the sound of ocean waves. What’s worth mentioning here is the fact that in the white noise category you can choose between four sounds, namely the relax to block room noise; calm that gives relief to tinnitus suffers; mask which blocks external noise and the soothe sound which has a high pitch.

Features

One of the most notable sound features on this model is the sleep therapy option. This feature takes a water or nature noise and transfers it to white noise once you have fallen asleep. The transition happens gradually and smoothly so that you won’t even notice it. There’s a minor drawback related to the LCD display screen. The screen doesn’t include an alarm clock function, so you’ll have to set the alarm on your phone and it also doesn’t display time. Nonetheless, it offers four brightness settings, the most important being total backlighting. If you want to leave the machine to play throughout the night, set the timer to turn it off after 30 or 90 minutes.

Design and accessories

The model features a classic and elegant design. The sleep machine has a tendency to tip over because it’s tall and a bit heavy, so you must be careful where you choose to place it. The controls and LCD display are located at the base of the sleep machine. This model comes with a remote control which gives you the option to adjust the features of this machine to your liking. In order to avoid losing the remote control, you can place it on the back of the machine, more exactly in the groove, where it will attach magnetically.

Ease of use

At the first glance, you may think that the unit is more complicated than other sound machines, but it’s not necessarily true. The unit can be easily controlled with the help of the buttons, or the convenient remote control. Both the unit and the remote control feature buttons for power, timer, dimmer, white noise, sleep therapy, nature, water, volume, and tone.

Warranty and support

Regarding customer support, you can rest assured knowing that you can always contact a Homedics representative in case you have further questions or any concerns. You can find plenty of useful information on their official page as well. This sleep sound machine is backed up by a standard one year warranty.

  1. I respect the HoMedics brand as I have purchased sound machines produced by this manufacturer in the past. Now I want to switch to using the HDS-2000, and I’m sure that it will be just as great as all the other models that I have bought in the past.

      Hello, Colin. No, you don’t have to stand close to the unit because the remote control works from wherever you want within the room.

      No, Karen. The model doesn’t feature a headphone jack, but you can set the unit to the lowest sound level if you’re afraid of disturbing the other ones.
