The Dohm-DS consists of a compact adjustable acoustic housing surrounding a two-speed electric motor with a unique asymmetrical fan. This design allows it to create the soothing sound of rushing air, Marpac Signature Sound, without the disturbance of actual moving air. This natural "white noise" sound has been proven to effectively block noises at a broad range of frequencies, so you can get deep, undisturbed sleep all night long. The Dohm’s two speeds and adjustable tone and volume allow you to control your personal sound environment with the simple twist of a wrist.
Sound conditioners (also known as sound machines, sleep machines, white noise machines - or one of many combinations thereof) are machines that emit a consistent, soothing soundtrack. Just as air conditioners moderate the temperature of an environment and drapes allow for the control of light in an environment, sound machines moderate the noise level of an environment. Turn one on, and tune everything else out.
A lot of people find that the soothing sound of rushing air is a wonderfully relaxing, all-natural sleep aid. We've received a lot of letters and emails from new parents, nightshift workers, spouses of snorers, frequent travelers -- even pet owners. All of them thank us, and say that we've literally changed their lives. Some people swear by their Marpac sound conditioner for concentration purposes, too, especially in an office or study environment that's too loud or just too quiet. And for privacy, whether you're in an apartment or dorm room, in a physician's or therapist's office, the sound conditioner is a simple and economical sound-masker.
Millions of well-rested people have been surprised at how much their sleep improved, or at how much better they could concentrate while studying. Our sound conditioners are especially useful for:
There is no shame in snoring. It happens. But if your snoring keeps your spouse awake, try one of our devices. It's cheap and noninvasive, nothing to wear on your face or ingest. Thousands of people swear it has saved their marriages.
Sleep will not come easily amidst noises from the street, construction sounds, crying kids, music-loving neighbors, or the late-night television watcher next to you.

It's not just a sleep aid, it's a tool for restoring order to your personal
Our white noise helps children sleep like babies (only better!) at nighttime or naptime. Using a sound conditioner helps to establish a sleepy-time ritual that can travel with you to grandma's house or on vacation. Our machines mask dishwashers, telephone calls, and all of the other not-so-silent things you need to get done without waking the kids, and also provide a consistent sound environment that is especially soothing to infants. We have many “Marpac families” with sound conditioners in every bedroom, and nothing makes us happier than to know that our products are beloved by generations!
Get more "A"s from more ZZZZZs... and better studying. Is the person next door is too noisy? Is your room is too quiet? Does your roommate snore like a gorilla. Our machines help students focus by providing a consistent audio backdrop even on loud campuses. Stressed students need sleep. We bring it. You can even skin your Dohm with personalized pictures of your school mascot, your dog, college colors or whatever else strikes your fancy.
Its not easy sleeping when you're out of town. Take along the Zohne, our petite travel sound conditioner, and create a sleepy home away from home. No more hearing people in the hotel hallway or listening to the elevators all night. No tossing and turning in an unfamiliar bed. Many of our customers never leave home without it. A good night's sleep is worth the space in your suitcase.
If you work in an office, especially in a cubicle, you know how distracting office chatter can be. It's hard to keep your personal telephone conversations private. No more. Our sound conditioners turn cubes into individual sanctuaries with one click. They also keep private offices more “private,” and have the added benefit of enhancing concentration, too!
Marpac sound conditioners are ideal for use in settings where you don't want conversations overheard such as in doctors and therapists offices. This not only makes patients feel more comfortable, but also keeps you aligned with the requirements of HIPAA for patient confidentiality.
Even if you work from 5pm-9am, you can sleep soundly when you get home. Now you can control your sleep schedule, your sound environment, your job stress and your sanity.
If you suffer from tinnitus, our sound conditioners may offer some relief. The ability to manipulate the tone of the sound emitted by the sound conditioner to match the tone in your ringing ears is part of what makes our devices so effective. Many sound conditioners are not up to the tinnitus task. Ours gets a ringing endorsement.
It's not really white, and it's not really noise. According to Wikipedia, "a random signal is considered 'white noise' if it is observed to have a flat spectrum over a medium's widest possible bandwidth." What this means to you: White noise can block out sounds across a wide range of frequencies, both more steadily and at a lower volume than, say, your music, which contains a variety of frequencies and is therefore an inconsistent sound-masking experience, no matter how loud you turn it up. That's the "scientific" explanation. What our years of experience have taught us is that all white noise is not created equal, and the simple, singular sound of rushing air is the most popular white noise. Our customers use the following words (among others) to describe it: "familiar," "comforting," "soothing," "protecting" and, our favorite, "deeply pleasing." This makes us deeply pleased, too.
Sound machines are most effective when placed between yourself and the greatest source of noise. This may mean that instead of simply placing the unit on the bedside table, it is more beneficial to put it beneath a window to block traffic sounds, near an interior door to mask television or voices from another room, or up against a thin wall to minimize the sounds of noisy neighbors, to give a few common examples. You'll also want to try adjusting the volume of the sound machine tin these different locations. With a little fine-tuning, you'll soon have the ideal noise-masking setup for your personal sound environment.
