We had used a Philip's sunlight alarm before which offered similar feature of playing sounds. Believe me when I say this product blows it out of the water. Granted, Philip's was mainly an alarm. But this costs less than half of Phillips but the audio quality is way ahead on this one. Theres number of sounds that'll help you sleep and calm down. We bought it for the baby we are expecting but were surprised to find it plays sounds that we are fond of as well. So, it helps the entire family rest!!
It got basic controls to keep switching to the next audio and volume levels. The build quality is decent. It is made to look like wood but definitely looks and feels plastic but a premium plastic. The packaging is very good
