Below is a summary of the feedback we gathered from the product's ACTUAL customers:


* For a long time, I have had trouble sleeping due to the loud and erratic behavior of my noisy neighbors. This product is simply great! It blocks noises of even the most obnoxious neighbor out there!

* I have got nothing but good things to say about this product! This is indeed a fantastic sleep machine! It does exactly what it says on the tin! I would rate it 5 stars!

* It effectively replaces the sounds of noisy and erratic neighbors with the more pleasant noise of a rush of air, which I like very much! I'd say that this product is worth every penny!

* I have been using white noise machines for a long time but since they don't last very long, I have been looking for a replacement. This one is really good. It is not much effective if you lower its speed (you get a low, whistling sound which I don't like at all) but at higher speed it offers you a very quiet atmosphere!

* I bought Marpac 980 a long time ago and am extremely happy with its performance so far! I love its 'hissing' sound. Even if you live in a very loud city it should still work!

* Let us say that your lover/spouse snores deeply in his sleep. Apart from divorcing him or heading to another bedroom (neither of which I wanted to do), what choice do you have? Well, I have got this sound blocker here, which blocks even the snores of my partner well, so that I am no more awakened by his snoring!

* I've got a very weird problem: if I hear a loud sound when I am going to sleep, then I tend to focus on that sound and thus, am unable to get any sleep or relaxation! This machine is an absolute night saver for me! Sure, it does not cover up the noises completely, but I would rather hear its soothing, calm noise than those loud and distracting noises!

* I had a hard time trying to figure out how to get a night's sleep in the midst of the noises of my neighbors and that of my husband's snoring. Ever since I bought this product back in 1993, I have been enjoying sound sleep every night! It has literary saved my marriage!

* It is not a miracle machine, but does it job well. For me, it can very well mask most of the noises, even the loudest one out there, but by no means it covers them up completely! Note that the same product is sold under two different brand names: "SoundScreen" and "SleepMate"!

* It sure covers the louder noises out there, but at the same time it replaces those noises with a noise of its own which is extremely straining on my ear. If you are okay with its noise then I think it might work good for you!

* For its price, I expected a quieter fan, but what you get here is a 'noisy' noise blocker than sounds like you are running a high-pitched fan or a low-power hair dryer in your room!

* This was a complete waste of money for me. Even at its highest setting it can barely mask noises well. A regular fan does a better job of covering up noises. I am returning it for a refund!

* This is nothing more than a fancy, expensive fan. At its loudest, it sure masks the noise of my neighbor but then creates a muffled noise of its own that is more distracting to me than that of my neighbor; on the other hand, at its quietest it blocks out all the other noises except that of my neighbor! I would suggest you buy a box fan instead!

* I have purchased several sound machines over the years but unlike the others, the noise of this one makes me more anxious instead of helping me relax. Even at its lowest volume, it gives out a very loud 'racing' noise that makes you want to move away from it as soon as possible!

This is worth a try only if you have money to burn; just don't expect it to last very long or be able to drown very loud noises. Otherwise, (and in case you have no issues with this option) I would suggest using a cheap box fan instead!
