Conair SU1W Sound Therapy – Ambient Auditory Sensations at Your Fingertips

cd2bd762-7c7e-4073-b9a5-d9dfc1a765ce_300The term “white noise” is an oxymoron, at least when it is coming out of a Conair SU1W Sound Therapy machine. The relaxing sounds that you hear from it can battle insomnia, help you concentrate and focus better, and allow you to relax like never before. Noise is something you are trying to get away from, such as drilling, honking automobiles, or shouting neighbors.

Just because you cannot get back to nature, is no reason that you can’t bring nature to you. Imagine that you have had a long and hard day at your job. When you get home, all you want to do is take a bath shower, grab a quick bite to eat and head to bed. The only problem is that you’re so stressed out that you cannot get to sleep.

That is where the Conair SU1W Sound Therapy comes into play. It’s a small device that you can set the sound effect, control the volume, and let it work its magic. Sit back, relax, and allow the natural sounds of running streams, falling rain, crashing waves and other marvelous auditory effects to fill the room.

Conair SU1W Sound Therapy – Features

  • Quality Speaker – Realistic sounds are flowing from a built in 3-inch speaker.
  • Dual Power – The Conair comes with an AC adapter, but it will also run off of four AA batteries.
  • Ten Realistic High-Quality Soothing Sounds:
    1. Thunderstorm – The sound of thunder can be soothing when you hear it in the distance. That low rumbling roar and sound of rain on the rooftop can help you sleep like a baby.
    2. Heartbeat – If you have ever heard the rhythmic beat of the heart over some speakers, you know that it has a hypnotic calming effect.
    3. Summer Nights – A lot goes on in the summer, and more so at night. Relive some of those sounds that you used to hear.
    4. Waterfall – Cascading waterfalls are powerful but supremely soothing.
    5. Tropical Forest – The forest is a mysterious place, especially after the sun goes down and all of the nocturnal animals and insects come out for a symphony of melodic sounds. It is a soothing sound for theears.
    6. White Noise – Mask unwanted noise with a background of muffled static. The muffled static sounds block them out.
    7. Ocean Waves – Have you ever gone to a beach and closed your eyes and were delighted at the sound of crashing waves? It’s constant, forever moving, and soothing.
    8. Songbirds – The sound of beautiful birds singing in perfect harmony is exceptionally tranquil.
    9. Running Stream – The running stream is often used in martial arts meditation and helps to clear the mind, or to have a mind like water where everything flows.
    10. Rainfall: Ease the mind with the peaceful patter of rain.

Conair SU1W Sound Therapy – What People are Saying

This product has received a 4 Star Rating with over 4,500 different reviews. One thing is clear, those who like it are delighted by the selection of sounds, especially the running stream, rainfall, and white noise. The volume control makes it particularly handy to adjust the sound according to the severity of background noises. Also, the Conair SU1W Sound Therapy works well with children and pets, helping them get a pleasant night’s sleep.

Some reviewers mentioned that they were a little distracted by the sound loops produced by the machine.These are digitally reproduced recordings of real sounds and some of the selections only have loops that are eight to ten seconds long. They mentioned if the volume is too high, the re-looping is noticeable, but if you change the position of the machine or lower the volume, this seems to go away.

Our take is that the Conair SU1W Sound Therapy is better than other units tested, and will suit the needs of most people. After the thorough examination we conducted here at Rip-Off Reports, we concluded this product is NOT a rip-off and is safe to purchase.
