Personally, I can't fall asleep without a little white noise in the background to drown out the sounds of the outside world—or the annoying, unstoppable ones that come from within my bedroom, like my noisy radiator. If I'm not running a fan or my air conditioner, I'm playing ocean sounds to lull me to sleep in their stead, and I know I'm not alone in that. The typical white noise, ocean sounds, and rain sounds aren't hard to come by, but there are plenty of people out there who can't sleep specifically without the gentle whirr of a fan running all night, and that's where the LectroFan EVO comes in.
Made by Adaptive Sleep Technologies, LectroFan EVO is a noise machine that, of course, has all your standard fare—it has 10 different white noise, pink noise, and brown noise settings, plus two types of ocean sounds: calm water and surf. But in addition to those 12 sounds, the LectroFan also offers 10 more that are just different types of realistic fan noises. Meaning, even when it's the dead of winter and it's freezing in your bedroom—because your noisy radiator isn't actually doing its job despite the horrible sounds it's making (is that just my apartment?)—you can have all the comfort of having your fan on without actually, you know, turning your fan on.
Of course, the sound quality is a factor, too. All 22 of LectroFan EVO's noises are non-looping, meaning they won't repeat every ten minutes (which can be distracting in its own right). You can also use it for more than just getting a good night's rest—you might find that it helps you focus when you're doing work or studying, too.
