Best Sleep Noise Machines 2020

Seven to eight hours of sleep is recommended, but for all the insomniacs out there, that's a tough goal to reach. Whether you can't sleep because of your noisy neighbors or it's just too quiet in your house, a sleep noise machine might be exactly what you're looking for. We've chosen the best for white noise, natural sounds, and one machine that does it all to help you (hopefully) get your full eight hours.

Sweet dreams are made of this

Sleep noise machines help millions of men, women, and children fall asleep every night. Whether you want to mask annoying sounds from outdoors, create a soothing soundscape to drift off, or make a wall of white noise to protect your little one's precious sleep, we've got a solution that can help. If you only struggle to sleep when you're away from home, consider an affordable portable option like the MyBaby Soundspa On-The-Go (opens in new tab). It's a simple battery-powered option that's perfect for travel.

Both white noise and nature sounds are great for falling asleep, but with the addition of city noises and more, the Sound+Sleep (opens in new tab) is our favorite. While others may have their own unique sounds, the number of choices in the Sound+Sleep are too great to pass up.
