Escaping to Your Very Own Sound Oasis

When we moved into our current home, I had been living in a city near an interstate. There was never silence. Cars were always on the go. The first night we slept in our home, the small-town, rural silence kept me awake most of the night. I needed my traffic noise.

Eventually, I began sleeping with a fan beside my bed to drown out the silence. It has served me well through the years, but when I had the chance to try the “world’s smallest white noise machine,” I said, “Yes, please.” After all, you can’t carry a fan everywhere you go.

Sound Oasis has produced a device you can take anywhere, discreetly use anytime, and is small enough to fit in pocket or purse. The joy of it is you don’t just have to listen to white noise. You can go to their website and download a variety of sounds, music, and even something to aid with tinnitus. Now, that’s amazing.

I’ve used this product several weeks and like it. If you’re like me and need noise to sleep, it’s great. If you need noise to block other sounds (snoring, perhaps), it’s wonderful.

It small, you can listen to whatever you like, and it’s much easier to carry than an oscillating fan. Go to and just see what they have to offer. You may be pleasantly surprised.
