There are so many so-called “sleep sound machines” in the market, but not many of them can claim to be engineered by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, Founder of the Center for Neuroacoustic Research. Tranquil Moments Advanced Sleep Soundsis the new advanced model of the hugely popular Tranquil Moments Sound Therapy Systems. The new model boasts 16 soothing sound programs are based on Delta, Alpha,or Theta brainwave frequencies. The makers claim that the sounds are specifically designed to “coax” your mind into entering a state of deep sleep, relaxation, or renewal, depending on what you need. It gradually slows playback speed of each sound program over a 20-minute period to gently, lull you to sleep. You can choose between listening to it all night or choose the Gradual-off/Gradual-on volume settings with 30, 60, or 90-minute auto shutoffs. There are four Sleep programs based on Delta brainwave frequencies – White Noise, Rain, Celestial, and Night – for deeper sleep. The four Relax programs – Ocean, Storm, Serenity,and Unwind – based on Alpha brainwave frequencies are excellent for stress relief. The four Renew programs – Stream, Meditate, Focus and Rejuvenate – based on Theta frequencies is perfect for meditation and concentration. The four Therapy programs help soothe the ears after a long day.
The Tranquil Moments Advanced Sleep Sounds also includes a backlit alarm clock. It runs on 2AA batteries or an AC adapter. This amazing sleep companion retails for $169.
