HoMedics myBaby SoundSpa vs myBaby SoundSpa on-the-go
Both of these sound machines are made by HoMedics, but they are slightly different.
- The portable SoundSpa plays 6 natural sounds and the SoundSpa on-the-go plays only 4 – heartbeat, white noise, ocean and lullaby.
- The portable SoundSpa can work on both mains power and batteries, whilst the on-the-go version only uses batteries.
- The SoundSpa on-the-go has an integrated clip so it can be attached to strollers, diaper bags and cribs.
- The on-the-go SoundSpa weighs 4.8 ounces and the portable SoundSpa weighs 8.0 ounces.
- Both have adjustable volume and both have a timer, but the on-the-go version only has a 15 minute timer, whereas the portable SoundSpa has a 15, 30 or 60 minute timer.
The main difference between these two HoMedics Sound Spas is that the on-the-go SoundSpa is designed to be taken to the shops or in the car, etc., whilst the portable SoundSpa is light enough to be taken away on holiday with you.
Whilst both are very affordable, the on-the-go version is usually slightly cheaper than the portable SoundSpa.
