Best Value White Noise Machine
The name makes it sound more like the world’s most obnoxious alarm clock, but really, the Big Red Rooster is a great white noise sound machine, with lots of options and a great price tag. If you prefer classic white noise to help get you to sleep, the Big Red Rooster has that option, of course, but it also comes with five ambient noise options that feature nature sounds: thunder, summer night, ocean, brook, and rain.
The sounds run on loops, however, so if you’re one of those people who can easily tell when a recording is starting over and are bothered by it, this may not be the best machine for you. Still, this sleep sound machine comes with a lot of perks in a small, travel-size package. It has several sleep timer options, it is powered by an AC adapter or it can run on batteries if needed, and it’s very easy to use, with a specific button for each of the six sound options. For $20, it’s an incredibly affordable way to get a good night’s sleep.
