Marpac DOHM-DS Benefits

Non-Digital Sound
The Marpac DOHM-DS is a non-digital product – meaning that the sound is created using a fan contained within the Marpac DOHM and adjusted by turning the plastic container.  This results in a consistent sound to the white noise created by the Marpac DOHM-DS.

8 food power cord for easy placement in any room
My wife likes to have the sound machine placed far away from her head, so the 8 foot cord absolutely helps with placement in a room.  In my daughters room we used the long cord to place the Marpac DOHM-DS very near the door, even though the closest plug wasn’t in the ideal location we were able to put the Marpac exactly where we wanted it.

Marpac DOHM Ease of Use

Easy to take with you
The Marpac DOHM-DS measures 3 ¼ inch high x 5 ¾ inch base and weighs only 1 ½ lb making it very portable and easy to store in a suitcase or backpack to transport for a consistent sleep even when traveling.

Consistent and customizable noise
The Marpac DOHM-DS makes it easy to customize the sound coming from it.  All you need to do is turn the top of the machine until you get the sound that is best for you.  It is worthwhile to note that because the Marpac DOHM-DS is not a digital machine it is limited to creating the white noise with the fan only. This means no “rainforest” or similar noises.

Marpac DOHM-DS Review Conclusion

The Marpac DOHM-DS excels at what it does – providing a consistent, predictable noise that helps drown out other external noises while keeping the operation and customization of the machine simple.  The Marpac DOHM-DS is one of the best sound machines on the market.
