Ahhh, the sound of silence. Haven’t heard that in awhile? Neither have we. But thankfully, Amazon has the Big Red Rooster white noise machine on sale for just $12 today—down from $30.

So if you want better sleep (who doesn’t?), try muffling background noise with this cute sanity saver. Use it to combat a snorer or loud city noises. Try it in the office for privacy when making phone calls, or in a baby’s room to lull little Charlie off to dreamland. One Amazon reviewer even uses it in her bathroom!

Choose from Rain, Brook, Ocean, Thunder, White Noise and Summer Night sounds. You can leave it on all night or set the timer to turn it off in 15, 30 or 60 minutes.

Plug-in or battery-operated, it’s compact enough to take on vacation (isn’t it annoying when room service wakes you up in the middle of a dream? The nerve!).

Says one five-star fan: “This sound machine has helped my husband fall right to sleep. We live close to railroad tracks which lead to a flour mill. The trains stop and idle right behind our house while loading and unloading. The engine rumbling is not conducive to a good night’s sleep. The sound machine has six different sounds to lull you to sleep and it is really helping him fall asleep and stay asleep. It has a timer to shut the sounds off, but he keeps it on all night. If he wakes, it helps him go right back to sleep. It is also good looking, and just the right size. I highly recommend this sound machine.”

And another: “We have livestock guardian dogs who do what LGDs are supposed to do—guard our livestock. But not by attacking anything that threatens. They guard by barking. At anything that might be a threat to our goats and chickens. So, all night long, they bark—at crickets, and possums, and armadillos, and moles, and bats, and owls and anything else that might creep in the dark. It's been MONTHS since we've had an uninterrupted night's sleep. We had taken to turning on the fan, but that sucks in the humid, Florida air. So we decided to try this gadget. WOW. What a difference the Big Red Rooster Sound Machine makes. TBH, we're not crazy about the water-based sounds. (Well, I'm not. They make me want to get up to pee.) But the "summer night" sound, with crickets, is perfect for masking the barking LGDs and letting us get some rest. The "white noise" sound is a lot like TV static, and I'm not crazy about that either, but that's okay, because now I hear CRICKETS and not barking dogs.”
