    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it too."
