#3: Homedics Deep Sleep II
This white noise machine is the largest measuring 9 inches tall and 8 inches wide that is why it takes a lot of space on a nightstand. It features a blue-lit digital display which you can also make it dim and on its face are the plethora of buttons. Unfortunately, there are unnecessary ocean, nature and “sleep therapy” sounds. Also, its 11-button interface is unresponsive and complicated to use.
