Do you fall asleep better with a gentle mechanical hum or the sound of a fan running in the background? If so, we would definitely recommend the Marpac Dohm DS Sleep Mate 980A
as your best choice among all the different varieties of sound machines. We receive many Sleep Mate / Dohm DS testimonials
from satisfied customers. Many customers that contact us have been using the Dohm DS for 15 years or more and are looking for a replacement since their Sleep Mate is finally wearing out. The Sleep Mate, recently renamed the Dohm DS, should be your first consideration when looking for a white noise sound machine. Keep in mind that the Sleep Mate and the Dohm are the exact same machine, just renamed.
The Sleep Mate 980A or Dohm DS Sound Machine
produces a smooth fan like sound that most people find very familiar and pleasing. The Dohm does not
loop unlike practically every other sound machine out there. By looping we mean playing a short recorded segment of sound over and over in an endless loop. Don't underestimate how important it is to have a sound machine that doesn't loop. If you can detect a repetitive quality in the sound, then that can be more annoying than the noise you are trying to mask. Again, the Dohm DS is one of the few machines made that creates its own sound and does not loop. The Sleep Mate or Dohm is the only sound machine that creates a real low volume mechanical hum or true fan sound.
In addition to the two speed version of the Sleep Mate 980A Dohm DS, you can get a single speed Dohm SS
White Noise Machine. The only difference between the Dohm DS and Dohm SS sound machines is that the DS has a low and high speed whereas the SS only has one speed that is identical to the high speed of the DS. That is why they now use the Dohm DS designation to stand for "Dual Speed" and the Dohm SS to stand for "Single Speed".
There used to be two models of 980 to choose from: Sleep Mate and Sound Screen. These two models are identical
except for the name. The Sound Screen name was most often chosen for office environments. But with the renaming of the Sleep Mate/Sound Screen to the new Dohm name, the Sound Screen name has been dropped. We only use it because some repeat customers still like to use the Sleep Mate and Sound Screen names.Note:
To reduce confusion over the two names for the same product, Marpac has decided to combine and replace the Sleep Mate and Sound Screen names with one machine that they are calling the Dohm-DS. The Dohm DS is exactly the same machine as the previous Sleep Mate 980A.
