The Sharper Image EC-B150 Premium Sound Soother
You'd expect something this cool to come from the folks at Sharper Image. When it's time for bed, select from a catalog of twenty soothing sounds to lull you to sleep. These include relaxing soundscapes such as falling rain, thunderstorms, distant windchimes, and of course, simple white noise. They play in timed loops that are just long enough to make your eyelids heavy. For the mornings, you can set the unit to play one of three alarm types a selection from the twenty soundscapes, a persistent beep alarm, or the FM radio. You can even set the alarm to sound gradually, starting low at first and then increasing volume incrementally. The backlit liquid crystal display features large numbers and letters that tell the time and date, and the brightness of the face can be adjusted to four levels, including off.
