With the great features of the Sound Oasis sleep sound machine you have finally found a sleep machine that will give you a perfect night’s sleep.


Why is the Sound Oasis S-850W so effective?

Oasis Sound machineThis sound machine works off a scientifically proven theory, which states that by masking random environmental noises with a constant white noise, you dampen your brain’s systems and sleep more soundly.

Your brain automatically craves outside sensory stimulation and any random noise, such as a creaking floorboard, a dog barking or a car driving past can easily stimulate your brain and wake you up.

You most probably don’t remember, but these random noises can wake you multiple times during the night, causing you to feel tired and worn out in the morning.

This means that you spend your day in a walking haze, just waiting for the time when you can go back to bed – but the cycle starts all over again and the next day is no better.

This means that you have every possible sleep sound noise covered and you can play a variety of soothing sounds or the white noise sound, switching it up to suit your mood.

  • Ocean Surf
  • North Woods
  • Thunderstorm

Do you suffer from jet lag or hotel noise? You need a travel sound therapy system …

If you Sound Oasis sounds to sleep totravel a lot you will know how difficult it is to sleep in hotel rooms.

There are so many noises outside your hotel room that keep you awake – traffic noises, people laughing, loud music or even planes flying overhead can all disturb your sleep when you are travelling.

Even fully air-conditioned hotel rooms have their own set of unusual and random noises which keep you awake and disturb your sleep. This is another reason why the portable Oasis Sound machine is so good – you can take it anywhere with you and it is powered by both mains and batteries. Since it only needs 4 AA batteries, you can even take it camping with you.

What do customers say about the Sound Oasis sleep sounds travel machine?

There are more than 100 reviews of the Sound Oasis sleep machine on Amazon and in general, people are very happy with this sound machine.

Can’t recommend this product highly enough. Recently, we took this unit on a 19 day backpacking trip to Europe… and we got 19 nights of quality sleep in budget hotels and hostels. 

It packs well and really solved my travel issues. I have severe tinnitus and the white noise sound helps me sleep. 

Amazing sound quality!! Perfect size for travel and includes a travel pouch for storage. Highly recommend for home and travel to get that soothing night’s sleep without the disruption of outside noises. 

I’m now sleeping better than I have in years and look forward to using it not only at home, but more importantly when I travel… I’ve recommended it to all my friends and family. 

I travel a lot for business. I have been woken up at 3 AM by hotel doors slamming, people yelling down the hotel hall, loud vehicles outside, etc. so many times I lost count. I bought the Sound Oasis S-850. It was a great decision.
