What is Sound?
Sound is a form of energy made by vibrations; these movements are also called sound waves. Sound is made up of many & varying frequencies.
As humans, we can generally hear a range of frequencies from 20 to 20,000 Hz.
What Is White Noise?
White noise is what is created when all the different frequencies of sound are mixed together at the same time.
Hence, creating a background noise that masks other sounds.
How Does White Noise Work?
When there are unexpected changes in noise, we’re often distracted by the sudden conflict of noise, especially if we are sleeping.
White noises effectively blocks out those changes, making it easier to sleep through the night.
For this reason, a lot of people leave a fan, air conditioner, television, or air purifier switched on through the night, which essentially creates ambient noise to help muffle other sounds in the room to promote a peaceful sleep.
If you are trying to concentrate in a disturbing environment and there aren’t these filters in place, you could always listen to white noise.

Do you live in a busy neighbourhood where a significant number of cars and pedestrians pass through? Maybe the walls of your apartment are thin, and you can hear conversations coming from the other room? In either situation, getting a good night’s rest can be difficult due to all the noise. In such cases, a white noise machine may be exactly what you need.
How It Works
A white noise machine is a device that emits white noise, a distinct sound created by combining different sound frequencies. The science behind this is that the presence of different frequencies makes it difficult for the brain to pick out one specific sound. As a result, all you hear is white noise.
Despite its name, white noise isn’t a nuisance. In fact, many people who use white noise machines claim that the sound they produce is relaxing. Overall, a white noise machine can help facilitate sleep, allowing you to wake up refreshed the next day.

Sleep is the one time of the day that we should all be able to switch off.

Loud noise is harmful to your ears and can cause permanent hearing damage. Any regular and prolonged time to noise over70dB (decibels) can cause damage to your ears. Therefore, sleep and sound here for the best ear muffs. The louder the noise, the shorter the time it takes for hearing loss to occur.
Unlike Ugg earmuffs or winter earmuffs from Kmart, which keep your ears warm in the cold, noise-canceling earmuffs can be worn all year round and have a much more important role in protecting your hearing. Hearing protection earmuffs are the quickest and simplest way to protect your ears from harmful sounds wherever you may be.
The Safe Work Australia Government website states that “Work-related noise-induced hearing loss is a preventable but irreversible condition that affects many Australian workers. Between 28–32% of the Australian workforce is likely to work in an environment exposed to loud noise at work. We provide the best ear muffs for you so you can work with them more comfortably.
These days, the trouble is that many people are exposed to loud noise at work and home and during the weekends in everyday life. What's more, people are not protecting their ears, which is increasing the number of people suffering from hearing loss.
Earmuffs for Children & Babies
Sleep and Sound stock a range of quality earmuffs for kids, women, men, and even specially designed earmuffs for the baby.
How often do you mow your lawns, use a leaf blower or hairdryer? Do you break out the drill, chainsaw, or other power tools on the weekend for a bit of DIY around the home? Teens seem are exposed to loud music everywhere they go, from personal headphones, in their cars, to nightclubs and concerts. Choosing not to protect your ears in loud environments will put your hearing at risk.
People exposed to any extended periods of noise above 85 decibels must wear hearing protection earmuffs or earplugs.
How Loud is Too Loud
Any noise above 120dB in one short blast within close range can cause you immediate, irreversible hearing loss.Once the cells in your ears have been damaged, there is no way that they can be repaired. To put things in perspective, if a person has even mild to moderate hearing loss, they can struggle to hear sounds under 70 decibels clearly. Knowing this, why would anyone NOT want to protect their ears and preserve their hearing at any chance they could?

If you are working with Power Tools or even doing lawn work around the house, you should definitely be protecting your ears from noise if you do not want the hearing loss to occur. If you are at a nightclub or concert, you could potentially expose yourself to damage in less than 2 mins.
Earmuffs for Sleeping
Some people choose to wear noise-canceling earmuffs to block noise and help them sleep. In this instance, we always recommend earplugs for sleeping. Earplugs give you the freedom to move around comfortably in your bed at night and allow you to sleep on your side happily. Pillow Speakers are a great way to listen to soothing music comfortably to help you sleep.
Earmuffs for Musicians
On the stage or in the studio, nothing gives you a kick like making music. Preferably at a high volume, right? Do you always wear good hearing protection? Considering that your hearing is probably your most important sense as a musician, it’s better to protect it well.
An average drum kit easily produces 100 decibels of sound; If you listen to this for longer than seven minutes, you are at a high risk of damaging your hearing.
Alpine Music Safe Earmuffs for Musicians have been custom-made for drummers and musicians because permanent hearing damage is irreparable, but it is preventable!

Ever had ringing in your ears?
Have you ever been to a loud concert and later experienced a ringing sound in your ears? This is called tinnitus.
What is tinnitus?
It is a feeling of ringing, hissing, roaring, buzzing, or static in your ears. Being exposed to loud noise causes this condition. Coldplay singer and rhythm guitarist Chris Martin recently revealed that he suffers from tinnitus. He has sound and simple advice for us all and our children “Be sure to wear hearing protection.” By the time Chris Martin was 25 years old, he had sadly already noticed the irreversible hearing damage effects.
Excellent improvement of air flow from the moment I inserted the device. Sleep is better and I am looking forward to more improvement as my nose adapts. Thank you sleep and sound. The best technique that I have ever tried.
I have been sleeping in a couple of new bedrooms lately and found I was waking up numerous times throughout the night. Since using the white noise I have been getting undisturbed sleep and I believe it is working on my cat as well.
Quick to fulfil the order and ship the order. Once in the hands of OzPost, anything can happen due to the enormous strain they are under, but I received my item very quickly. :thumbsup_tone3: I have sin ordered another nasal dilator.
I purchased a Sova mouth guard that is super comfortable and great value. The product arrived very quickly. I am very happy with my purchase and will buy more in the future. If you have the budget and like your teeth buy it.
I’ve used this company several times & have always been happy with the product & service. Delivery was prompt. I also said they weren’t the most comfortable and for the price, we probably could have found a better option.
Very comfortable and helps me breathing at night really well. Better than other products I have used. We have been using the product for 2 days now and absolutely love it. Great product at an unbelievable price. Recommended 100%.
Very quick delivery, good to have a purchase option to try different styles of ear plugs without having to commit to buying a larger pack. Each pair is individually packaged in little poly bags. Very hygienic. I always used these types earplugs.
