UPC: 3600500981 Beige/Tan in color.
The Marpac Dohm DS
(DS is for double speed) is the number 1 selling white noise machine. The Dohm DS is assembled by the Marpac Corporation right here in the USA and displays superior quality when compared to the units made in China.
Information About the Dohm DS
The Sleepmate has been renamed using the Dohm name, otherwise the Dohm and Sleepmate are identical. The Marpac Dohm DS
white noise machine produces a smooth, unobtrusive fan-like sound that the majority of customers report as pleasing and effective at masking annoying low volume noise. If you are having trouble with loud noises that you want to mask, then we would recommend you check out the Sound Oasis S-650 which is for sale here
. Another advantage of the Dohm DS
white noise machine is that it does not loop like practically every other sound making machine on the market. What we mean by looping is the playing and replaying of a short recorded segment of sound over and over in an endless loop; that is how almost every sound machine produces what seems like a continuously playing sound. Don't underestimate how important it is to have a sound machine that doesn't loop, since if you can detect a repetitive quality in the sound, that can prove more annoying than the noise you are trying to mask. The Dohm DS is one of the few machines made that mechanically creates its own sound and does not loop. The Dohm models by Marpac are the only machines that physically create a real, low volume mechanical hum or fan sound.PROS:
The Dohm DS
has been our top sleep machine recommendation among all models for a long time now. This machine mechanically generates a fan-like approximation of white noise that most people find pleasing and effective as evidenced by the very low rate of returns and the many positive responses we get from satisfied customers. Keep in mind that you can return your Dohm or Sleepmate for any reason for a full refund of the purchase price within 30 days (we actually don't quibble on the 30 days; if it's been 60 days, we usually accept the return if it is returned complete and like new). The point being, that we want you to find the best white noise machine for you, one that you will be satisfied with for years to come.CONS:
If you would like a variety of nature sounds in your white noise machine, the Dohm is not your best choice. If you want a loud or high volume, it is not the best choice. If you are looking for a variety of nature sounds in a similarly priced unit, we would recommend the Sound Oasis S-650
with its variety of sounds and good speaker.
In addition to the two speed version of the Dohm model, you can get the Dohm SS which is the single speed version. The only difference between the DS and SS models is the double speed (DS) versus single speed (SS) feature. The single speed of the SS model is the same as the higher speed of the double speed model. Note:
The Dohm is exactly the same sound machine as the previous SleepMate model, only the name has been changed.
