Sounds

The ocean sounds are calming although you won’t manage to hear the waves crashing clearly. It basically sounds like the ocean on a windy day, which can be not very pleasant. Concerning the thunder noises, you will get to hear only two thunder booms during 21 seconds so you won’t get the impression of a rolling thunderstorm. As for the brook and rain sounds, the brook sounds like heavy rainfall while the rain sounds like steady rain. According to most users, the rain sound can make you enter a deep relaxation state and it’s the best on the sleep machine. Last but not least, white noise is similar to TV static noise and it’s nice to fall asleep to, because it’s not loud or anything.
