Alarm for different needs - March 24th 2009, 09:44 AM

Are there alarm clocks available for people who are sensitive to harsh noises?

I'm sure there are, though I'm not sure where you'd go about getting one. I have an alarm clock with the choice of several waking sounds and volume control, so I can choose how harsh the sound and how loud the tone. I recommend talking to someone at an electronics store, see if they have something that meets your needs, or even shop around the internet and see if you can find anything, either to order online or to bring into a shop to see if they can match it.

You can get alarm clocks which you can set like a music to, so you wake up to your favourite song or whatever. Just shop around, there are other alternatives apart from the harsh beeping sound which comes with most alarm clocks. Or alternatively, use your mobile phone? You can get whatever you want as the alarm on a lot of phones.

Hey there,

There are some alarm clocks that wake you in ways other than that horrible 'bleep bleep' sound (actually 'bleep bleep' doesn't do it justice, it's far more more horrible than that ). I use my mobile as an alarm, then you can choose the volume and tone, but there are a few links below that might be useful.

iPod Alarm Clocks

Natural and Natural Light Alarm Clocks - These sound really cool , I don't know if they work though?

Another Natural Light Alarm Clock

Vibrating Alarm Clocks

^ Hope those helped! ^

Hey Eli.
I think that if you look around, you'll definitely find something. As has been suggested, there are some alarm clocks that you can set to some kind of radio station, and that station will play to wake you up, as your alarm. You can always adjust the volume on them to so it's not as surprising and you don't think your being attacked when your alarm wakes you up in the
morning

Best of luck.x

hi eli there are many alarm clocks for this purpose, but i prefer shakeawake clocks.

ShakeAwake Alarm Clocks are Vibrating Alarm clocks that are useful for people who are sensitive to jarring sounds and hate loud noises. The ShakeAwake Alarm clock is a battery operated portable alarm clock with vibrator, loud buzzer alert and a snooze button that wakes up even the deepest sleepers on time and is calming for people who are sensitive to noise pollution. check shakeawake.com for more info.
