Lectrofan White Noise Machine: A Review

Outside noise can be a big barrier to sleep. Indeed, one survey from New York revealed that 64% of respondents said that exterior sounds such as dogs barking, planes and street noises were the primary obstacles to receiving a good night’s rest. 

As sleep is an important restorative tool, anything that hinders it needs addressing.

This is where the Lectrofan white noise machine could be beneficial. The machine's tranquil and relaxing sounds can drown out exterior noise. 

Those with sleep apnea may also find a white noise machine helps create a more relaxing bedroom environment, not only blocking out exterior noises but also the sound of a CPAP machine.

What Is White Noise?

White noise is a mix of audible frequencies that can be used to create a relaxing bedroom environment. The notion of using such noise to aid relaxation has been around for centuries. 

The sounds that help you fall asleep can be personal and may include natural sounds such as rainfall or more generic sounds such as those made by a fan.

Research points to the benefits of using white noise as an aid for sleeping. For people with sleep apnea who are light sleepers, it could help mask exterior noises and allow them to receive the quality rest they need to eliminate the symptoms of this disorder. 

The Lectrofan White Noise Machine

With the Lectrofan white noise machine, you have the choice of twenty soothing sounds to help create a relaxing bedroom environment. The sounds help mask the external noises that can prevent you from falling and staying asleep.

This compact device sits comfortably on a bedside table. Its size also makes it portable, ideal for taking with you on holiday or when traveling for business. You can choose from 10 non-repeating white noise sounds and 10 non-repeating fan sounds, allowing you to find the sound that helps relax you most and drowns out exterior noise.

The three-button control panel is simple to use and allows you to personalize the sound level of your chosen white noise. A timer can be set to automatically shut down the machine once you have fallen asleep. 

For a little under $50, the Lectrofan white noise machine could see you enjoying tranquil nights of restorative rest once more. The device uses a USB cable and an AC adapter, allowing you to power up from another powered USB port source or from a wall outlet in your bedroom.

Will a Lectrofan White Noise Machine Improve Quality of Sleep?

In recent years more research has been carried out into white noise and its potential benefits in helping you fall and stay asleep. The results were encouraging. One study reported adults falling asleep up to 38 times faster when listening to white noise.

The research also suggests it helps you stay asleep longer, allowing you to better cycle through the various stages of sleep. It was not just adults who benefited too, as studies found that your little ones may fall asleep faster when listening to such soothing sounds.

Of course, everyone is different and many people will feel they do not need an aid to help them fall asleep. However, in a modern world where so many of us live in highly-populated urban areas, the impact of external noises can’t be ignored and is likely to only increase. 

Therefore, the relaxing sounds of the Lectrofan white noise machine offer potential relief to those struggling to fall asleep due to the noise of 21st-century living. 

Why Good Quality Sleep Is Vital

When we fall asleep at night it allows the body the important restorative downtime it needs. When you are deprived of this, both the mind and the body can suffer. 

A good night’s rest:

  • Lowers risk of serious health issues like heart disease and high blood pressure
  • Provides energy for the day ahead
  • Boosts physical strength
  • Improves concentration levels
  • Reduces risk of accidents caused by fatigue
  • Allows the consolidation of memories and improves cognitive development
  • Reduces the risk of depression
  • Boosts clarity in the decision-making process

It is estimated that over one-third of Americans are not sleeping for the recommended hours. Adults are recommended to get at least 7 hours of sleep every night. Addressing any issues you have with sleeping, including the negative impact of external noises at night, is therefore key in helping with your overall health.

Those with a disorder such as sleep apnea can find their sleeping patterns disrupted on a nightly basis. This increases their risk of health issues such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Therefore, any further external factors that prevent them from falling asleep such as outside noise compounds the problem.

Helping Yourself

Ensuring a bedroom environment that encourages you to fall asleep and establishing a bedtime routine will complement your Lectrofan white noise machine. With all the various elements in place, you could find yourself falling asleep faster.

As well as finding a bedroom temperature that is comfortable, you also should look to make the room as dark as possible. Use curtains or blinds to limit the light entering the room at night – and either remove or turn off any blue-light-omitting devices you have in the bedroom – tablets, TVs, cell phones.

To encourage a natural sleep/wake cycle, look to get into the habit of going to bed and getting up at the same time each day. You will want to avoid anything that can affect falling asleep such as eating a heavy meal too close to bedtime and drinking caffeine or alcohol.

Regular exercise is also good for encouraging good sleeping habits. However, while exercise induces tiredness it can also hinder you from falling asleep if done too close to bedtime when the adrenaline may still be flowing.

Exterior noise can be problematic when trying to fall and stay asleep. The Lectrofan white noise machine helps mask these noises with more relaxing, sleep-inducing sounds, helping you get the restorative rest you need.
