Anyone who has sleep issues knows that white noise can sometimes be the key to falling and, most importantly, staying asleep. While it might seem counterintuitive to turn on a noise machine before attempting to drift off, the constant, steady levels of white noise create a masking effect from more undesirable sounds — like early morning garbage trucks or your partner’s incessant snoring.

With the Snooz White Noise Machine, this noise is created naturally by using a fan, hidden inside the machine itself. The volume can be adjusted via the Snooz app, and you can also change the intensity of the noise, from that of a table fan to an airplane’s deeper drone sound.

Another great thing about Snooz is its portability. It’s just 2.5 inches tall, so it’s small enough to throw in your bag and ensure you get a good night’s sleep wherever you are.
