What is White Noise?

White noise is more than just recordings of ocean waves and rain sounds. White noise is a collection of sounds that has the same intensity through the audible range, creating a uniform sound perfect for masking loud disruptions. In other words, white noise “smooths” out your audible environment for sleeping, studying, focusing, and more! While we call it “white noise” because that’s the most commonly used industry term, our Dohm products are actually creating pink noise. If you sample white noise, brown noise, and pink noise, you will quickly hear that actual “white noise” is annoying to your ear and not conducive to sleep!

Our signature white noise sound contains less high-frequency content than most competing sound machine models on the market. Not all white noise is created equal, and we strive to make ours the best. Our sound conditioners produce only the highest-quality rich, robust sound that fills your environment with soothing tones.

The Original Fan-Based White Noise

We can confidently say we’re the experts on fan-based white noise because, well, we invented it! In 1962, our original founder created the very first sound conditioner in his garage out of an aluminum dog bowl and a lot of elbow grease for his wife who suffered from insomnia. For the past 50+ years, we’ve sold millions of our Dohm sound machines bringing the simple joy of natural fan-based sound worldwide. If you love sleeping with a fan on to fall asleep, our fan-based white noise solution is perfect for you. The Dohm creates the soothing ambient sounds of rushing air, without the disturbance and cooling effects of actual moving air. Our noise-canceling natural sound machines replicate the constant “whirring” of an air conditioner or fan in a convenient, portable unit. This simple yet effective invention is easy to use and lacks the irritating looping effects of digital sound machines. All of our Dohm sound machines have been hand-assembled in the USA since 1962.

The steady sound of white noise helps you get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer. Harness the power of sound to create a sleep-centered environment.

Blocks Outside Disruptions

Gently blocks disruptive sounds of the outside world in your home, office, hotel room, or vacation home. Effectively buffers outside noise disruption from noisy neighbors, barking dogs, snoring partners, chatty coworkers, and city sounds. Also helps with managing tinnitus symptoms.

Privacy and Concentration

Use white noise in your office, study, or classroom to minimize outside distractions so you can focus on the task at hand. Sound machines are a low-cost way to ensure sensitive topics and discussions are kept confidential in your private practice or waiting area.

Easy to Use

Just plug it in and flip the switch to choose your volume; ‘high’ for noisy environments or more aggressive sound masking; ‘low’ for everything else. The Dohm Classic is simply effective and not hindered by a complicated interface or gimmicky features.

Customized Non-Looping Sound

Once you’ve selected your desired volume, twist to fine-tune the tone of your white noise. Whether you prefer a high or low pitch or tone, you will be able to find the sound that is most relaxing and pleasing to you. The natural, fan-based sound gives you rich, continuous white noise without any distracting digital looping.

  1. Amazon Customer

    I wasn’t too sure about this, but so glad I ordered it.I’m sleeping SO MUCH BETTER. I liked it so much I ordered another for a family member and they love theirs too!!!

  2. Jack Young

    The sound quality is slightly better than the new model and the original design has a tighter outer shell fit for sound adjustment. The one I received was a bit beat up though around the edges of the middle outer adjustable shell so will just swap for one in better condition.

  3. Kindle Customer

    My wife snores like a lumberjack. I bought the Dohm white noise generator to drown out the noise. The sound quality is very good, but it is not nearly loud enough for the task – including when it is placed between us or right by my head. It has two fan settings, with an additional adjustment on top to adjust the air flow and sound. It works great in an otherwise quiet room – which mine is not. It seems sturdily built.

  4. Jay W Vogt – Peoplesworth

    We own a second home in a Colonial town in Mexico where the night brings fiestas, dogs barking, fireworks, car alarms, church bells, and the like. And this is in our neighborhood which is widely recognized as “quiet.” When it is too much, we plug in this baby and it all goes away. We typically use the lower setting and don’t need the higher setting. We also use white noise apps when we are traveling but we enjoy having this all set up to go, and not needing to have our phones working all night long. Does the job.

  5. Kellie

    As many people who reviewed this product have complained, we, too, live beneath ‘those’ neighbors. We’ve suffered through countless sleepless nights and sighed in relief when air conditioning weather rolled around again. While we could still hear noise from above and were still frequently rudely awakened, it happened less often and was less jarring, making it easier to fall back asleep. Well, the cold weather rolled around again and once again we were functioning on very little sleep. When earplugs, quiet music, and nature sounds failed to have any effect, we had to find an answer. A fan was not practical in our tiny room, leaving us feeling chilled no matter how we arranged it, beside the fact that I hate blowing the fan constantly and trying to keep it dust free. We had to find an answer. The great reviews inspired me though the bad reviews cast doubts. To me, the price was well worth it to have even a chance at sleep. At this point I often found myself in tears at 4am praying for the relief of sleep .When the unit arrived ahead of schedule, I ran into my room to set it up. I put it on a dresser about six feet from the head of our bed. I set it to the loudest sound it could make and looked forward to bed. Two words: It worked! We got the same effect as the air conditioning, pretty much. The noise was greatly reduced. The noise that came through was less bothersome so that often I could just turn over and drift back asleep since I didn’t literally jump out of bed thinking something happened to one of my kids. I run this 24 hours a day since I like that it muffled some of the daytime noise, which, while not waking me up, can really get on my nerves (guitar playing, balls bouncing, things being repeatedly thrown and dropped on the floor, kids screaming, parents yelling).What I like: Blocks a lot of noise, muffles the rest. Doesn’t take up a lot of room. Doesn’t stand out like an alien device. Easy to use. So far very reliable. Not as loud as my air conditioner but I feel it does just as good a job.What’s OK: The noise isn’t annoying, but neither is it soothing. Being fair, I feel that if it were soothing, it wouldn’t really neutralize as much sound as it does. I can hear a little vibration from it sitting on my dresser, though I have a couple of things I haven’t tried yet to help that.What I don’t like: There is nothing I do not like.Let’s be fair. This unit does exactly what it promises. The noise may bother some, true, but the only way to know is to try. I don’t know why people say, “Don’t buy this, the noise is horrible!” Definitely tell us if you find it horrible but understand that not everybody will. I know people who can’t sleep with a window air conditioner or a fan. They don’t tell people not to buy them. Would I prefer if my house was quiet and I didn’t need this? YES! I would! I love when it is dark and silent and I can sleep. Unfortunately, right now I do not have this option. This machine has literally given me back hours of sleep PER NIGHT and, in turn, made me feel less stressed and I am rarely short tempered. (I say me because my husband has lost a lot of hearing and simply sleeps on his good ear. It seems to work for him as well as the machine works for me!)One point I would like to make is that this machine does cover noise, so if you have kids (or even sometimes pets, I would imagine) you might want to keep in mind that chances are you won’t hear them when you are in the room with this machine, sleeping. My seven year old woke up with a stomachache one night and in the morning he told me he’d been in the bathroom for a while. The bathroom door is directly across the hall from my bedroom door and I never heard him. (Ha – that shows you how loud the neighbors are as I still hear them!) If something is going on in the house, it could be easily missed. That also makes it great for kid’s rooms to block the sounds from the rest of the house when they go to bed early.If you have noise that keeps you awake or wakes you from your sleep, this machine could be the answer to a better night’s sleep. If you can sleep with a fan or window air conditioner, this may work for you. It has been a life changer for me!Update: We have been using this product continuously for coming up on five years. I can no longer sleep without it. We use one to travel with and is a lifesaver in hotels where rude people talk loudly late into the night, or you hear road noise, or even just the strange noises of a new place. Sleep saving device!

    Update: I ended up buying a second one for my living room! It helps block out my noisy neighor who often plays his music when I’m trying to enjoy a good book in the living room, or just take a catnap on the sofa.For the second unit however, I bought the Camo version which I think works well in the bedroom. You tend to almost subliminally think of nature and the relaxing outdoors with the camo version near you when you’re sleeping so I moved the Black one to the living room.–I live less than a mile a way from some train tracks and the train engineers often blow the train horns in the middle of the night for seemingly no reason. I have often believed they are doing it out of spite for having to work the overnight shift or something! I also have some neighbors who walk their barky dogs just before they go to bed just outside of where I am already sleeping.The Dohm Classic to the rescue! Sure, silence is best if you can get it. Think a mountain cabin out in the woods or something, I sleep amazing there, but the rest of the time, at home I need the Dohm.It helps isolate you from the outside noise so you can sleep better. Think of it as blackout curtains but for your hearing. (Note: you need blackout curtains too if you don’t already have those).Nice mechanical device, made in the USA and classic retro device. I remember seeing these from time to time when I was a kid in the waiting rooms of various doctor’s offices; I used to think it was strange as kid but now I totally get it.No looping or pausing of the sound, which is important because if it did, your mind would be anticipating that loop and would keep you awake.I have mine plugged in to a remote switch so I can power it on or off from bed whenever I want. This is very useful since I don’t need to have it on while I’m reading in bed, but then when I’m ready for sleep, I can turn it on easily with the remote. Same for when I wake up, I can turn it off while still in bed.Note: I found that there can be a slight high-pitched whine just based on where you have the casing dialed in at, due to the fan resonating but a slight twist of the casing and you can make that go away so the tone is more pleasing.I would really recommend one of these to anyone and can’t believe I didn’t get one earlier.

    This is the second DOHM in my house and it lasts for years! My first one ever bought is still surviving so it’s definitely worth the money.

    The most natural white noise machineI purchased this to help with sleeping. I am a light sleeper, and easily disturbed by sound. I knew about the MarPac machine from community acupuncture clinics, where they’re used to block out ambient chatter and to keep more confidential the conversations between acupuncturist and patient in a shared space. They are perfect in that setting and the low whir really is conducive to resting.For personal use, this is a great option. Plenty of settings for different levels of sound. The naturalness of this sound doesn’t engage the mind to listen or pay attention. It’s a bit like steady rain on the roof or a wind that just keeps blowing with consistent force. Many machines are actually playing recording that have a loop that the mind will listen for, this is not that. It’s all generated by a small fan.There are two slight negatives I’ve found with use:1) There is a slight mechanical buzz that is audible under the white noise itself. It’s not anything very loud, but in a small space, it’s noticeable enough that I moved it from near to my bed to the furthest corner of the room (small) so about 7 feet away. I wasn’t expecting it to generate any noise audible over the white noise itself.2) It blocks out outside vehicle noise, chatter in neighboring yards, and dogs barking upstairs, but it doesn’t seem to mask the heavy-footed steps of my upstairs neighbor. I didn’t necessarily expect this, I was hopeful, but if you’re purchasing just for purpose it may not be what you need.

    Glad we went for it. And ours was fully rated at 240v for UK use.My wife developed a bout of insomnia some 5 years ago, and found that at the time the “Birdsong” channel on Digital Radio became a bizzare and unexpected solution to her problem. However when it went off air some 2-3 years ago we went down a huge and complex route of trying to create digital loops off downloads of birdsong, rainforests, white noise et al (and failing due to the inevitable “jump” betweeen loops and the complications for setting up about 8 hours of loops). Eventually we settled on her running a succession of huge 12″ fans next to the bed and that’s how it’s been for some 3 years. Somewhere along the line we came across this device but ignored it due to the price. Finally, as a birthday gift, I got her this and the moment we turned it on we new we had cracked it and the fans could go. Cheap as 12″ fans can be, shoving one in an Ikea bag everytime she/we to stay away has been a pain. Features are; 1) The device is 9 x 13cm and so is very unintrusive 2) appears to be basically a compact fan in a box and therefore gives a uniform (very important) white noise output. 3) Has two adjustments; top dial that seems to modify pitch, side collar that adjust volume. 4)The operating switch is three way; Off, I and II. Whatever the differnce between I and II is must be subtle as I can’t tell the difference.RE: VOLTAGE; PLEASE NOTE; VERY IMPORTANT; I “took a punt” on this, not reading many of the reviews. Having now taken delvery and read some, I was concerned that many stated that there were potentially dangerous issues with the device being a USA device at 117 Volts and associated issues. Please can you note that ours came with a UK plug attached and a small red lettered sticker attached to the instruction manual stating “240 Volt AC Operation Only” so I can only assume the manufacturer has taken onboard these criticisms and is selling a “fully UK’d” version. Perhaps refering to this when ordering could ensure trouble-free operation.Clearly as a solution to insomnia, this is going to do the job for her. At £50 it’s not cheap but £50 for my wife’s continued mental health seems utterly cheap. My advice is give it a go.

    She slept wellBought it for her uni residence. Slept well the first night she got it and every night since (a 2” memory foam mattress topper helps too) . These corded real fan noise machines are best.
