Ecotones Duet Sound & Sleep Machine

Who makes it: Adaptive Sound Technologies 

How much: $130

What it does: Stress, excitement or just plain noise can keep your brain from shutting down for a good night's sleep. Instead of reaching for the Ambien, some people are turning to the soothing sounds of sleep machines for some shut-eye. Ecotones' Duet sets the bar with "adaptive" technology that automatically adjusts the volume of its 10 lengthy recordings (such as sounds of a fireplace or ocean) based on the background noise in the room.
