With our increasingly active lifestyles, it’s getting more and more difficult to get a good night’s sleep. While it’s widely suggested that adults need 7-8 hours of sleep every day, many of us don’t manage to hit that number all the time. When you do manage to get a proper night’s rest, you’ll find yourself waking up fresh, energised, and ready to tackle the day. However, actually sleeping properly is easier said than done.
While nothing short of medication can truly force you to fall asleep, there are gadgets that can help. One such device is the Rs. 1,790 HoMedics SoundSpa, a ‘white noise’ machine made by an American company that specialises in wellness products. The SoundSpa is rather simple in its approach, and promises to help people (including babies) sleep better. Is it truly as effective as it seems? We decided to find out.
With a focus on portability and ease of use, the HoMedics SoundSpa is simple but effective in its design. The device is essentially a small speaker with its audio tracks built in; there’s no external connectivity or method of playing your own music. While the plastic body might seem a bit tacky and lacking in durability, it serves the purpose and feels sturdy enough for tabletop use and the occasional trip out of town.
