No matter how makeup and skin brightening products we slather on our face, it’s tough to fake the look a good night’s rest. For the light sleepers of the world, all kinds of noises ranging from city traffic to the neighborhood dogs to a hooting owl or howling coyote in the distance, these harmless noises can keep one awake all night. How about a sleep partner who “breathes freely” to full-on snores and keeps you awake? You may be tempted to use earplugs to sleep, but what if there is noise in the night you want to be awakened for? A child crying, an alarm, a fire, or something else worth getting up? Fortunately, there are white noise machines: loud enough to conceal innocuous but annoying noises, not so loud that you can’t hear what is important. We like the L’emouchet White Noise Machine for getting a good night’s sleep because it has so many options and high-quality, therapeutic sounds, including the hard to find brown noise.
HOW WHITE NOISE WORKS
White noise tricks the brain into hearing some sound, but not sounds that arouse the brain into being too alert to sleep. The brain knows it hears something, but it is not a threat. Some sounds are even relaxing or therapeutic, such as ocean waves, a campfire or the rainforest. The brain can still hear important sounds like your bedroom door opening or someone calling your name, but not every little noise outside.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THE L’EMOUCHET WHITE NOISE MACHINE
White noise machines have a variety of sounds to drown out unwanted sounds such as traffic, a TV or loud music in a nearby room or apartment or the neighbors barking dog. The L’emouchet White Noise Machine has 15 Non-Looping Fan and Soothing realistic Sleep Therapy Sounds including:
- White noise, an ambient non-discernable noise pattern that quells out distinct noises
- Brown noise is an unusual inclusion with a white noise machine. It has a “damped” or “soft” quality compared to white noise, very little static. The sound is a “low roar” like a waterfall or rainstorm. It is very helpful for those who have difficulty reaching sleep stages deep enough to dream.
LISTEN TO THE THERAPY SOUNDS
Listen and watch this video to hear all of the sounds this machine has:
- AUTO TIMER SETTINGS include 30, 60, 90 minutes or all night timers.
- EASY TO USE INTERFACE has volume, sound memory function, built-in speaker and
- HEADPHONE JACK: audio-out headphone jack if your sleep partner or roommate does not want to hear the white noise machine.
- OPTIMAL SOUND VOLUME with five volume increments to best suit your needs. For masking other noises to sleep, an adult typically plays the volume a bit louder than they might have music playing in a room, but you may prefer softer for sleeping. For a baby or pets, the volume is generally adjusted lower.

- FREE SLEEP MASK: The machine comes with a free, comfortable sleep mask to help you block out bright light and other distractors.
- USER MANUAL: Easy to understand, concise user manual
- WELL PACKED: This is a very well packed sturdy box that is suitable for presenting to someone if giving it as a gift
HOW TO USE THE L’EMOUCHET WHITE NOISE MACHINE
The volume level should be set slightly louder than normal music listening level, but still, a level that is comfortable enough to listen to and still doze off.
It is very easy to assemble, insert the plug jack at the base, plug it in, and turn it on with a press of the large center on/off button.
I found the sound quality and variety of sounds that the L’emouchet White Noise Machine has to be superior to other white noise machines I have tried, there is not the “AM Radio” type static that is often heard with noise machines, and the sounds are superior in that they are not looped, meaning I can’t detect when the sound starts over in a discernable pattern. I find this more lifelike and relaxing.
I especially like the water-based sounds including the ocean and rainfall sounds, and the brown noise is highly relaxing for both me and for pets. It drowns out the sound of the neighborhood dog that tends to bark at each car passing down the street at night, as well as traffic sounds. I can still hear noises in the house such as a door opening or someone speaking to me in the room. The brown noise lulls me to sleep faster, and when I do wake up, the sound makes me sleepy so it is easier to get back to sleep.
Keep pets that are home alone company during the day with some soothing sounds
