This futuristic $300 white noise machine helped me get the best sleep ever

White-noise machines are not a modern concept. But a white-noise machine that creates a sound blanket customized to your room's acoustics? That's new.

And that's what the Nightingaledoes: It's a smart sleep system that masks all sorts of sounds, like car horns outside or snoring in the next room.

The Nightingale works by plugging into the outlets in a room and emitting noise based on the acoustic makeup of the space. If your bedroom is mainly glass and concrete, for example, Nightingale will emit sounds that won't echo off those reflective surfaces.

I've now been sleeping with the Nightingale turned on for more the last week. Here's what it's like.

Nightingale consists of two rectangular boxes that plug into the wall outlets in your bedroom. The nice thing about the devices is that they have pass-through plugs, so you don't have to sacrifice outlet space in your room.

Since the devices only need an outlet to work, Nightingale says you can travel with them, put them in hospital rooms, or move them around in your house. They also don't need to be unobstructed or out the open, so it's OK if you want to hide the devices behind furniture.

Both devices have lights that glow either green, red, yellow, blue, or white to light your way to bed. I opted not to use the lights because they're very bright, but they can be helpful if your room gets very dark at night.

To use Nightingale, you'll need to download the iOS app (it's coming to Android soon). Once you plug in the two devices, you'll have to give Nightingale some information about the room it's in. Is it a hospital? A nursery? A master bedroom?

From there, you'll need to tell the app a bit about the materials in the room. If your room is carpeted, your bedding is plush, and you have thick curtains, the sound will be a lot different than if your room has high ceilings and concrete floors.

My bedroom is pretty standard: it has hardwood floors and big windows, but it's not particularly big and all my bedroom furniture is wood. I also don't have tinnitus (ringing in the ears) or a roommate that snores, so Nightingale chose the basic

The device can either emit standard white noise or nature sounds; I went with a nature sound since white noise weirds me out a little.

Nightingale lets you choose between five different types of nature sounds: whale songs, crickets, loons, something called

The rainstorm, however, was delightful. It sounded like a steady rain falling all night with rumbles of thunder every few seconds. While someone who hates thunderstorms may not like it, I found the sound incredibly comforting and relaxing. I began to look forward to going to bed every night to listen to the rain.

My device starts up around 11 p.m. every night (the sound starts soft then slowly gets louder, so you're not startled by it) and turns off around 7 a.m. It's easy to change the time, or just flip it on and off, by opening up the app.

You can also adjust the volume as needed. I live on a very busy street in New York City, and I quickly realized that I'd need to have my Nightingale turned up pretty high in order to work. I sleep with it at a level 8, but the volume goes up to 10.

After a full week sleeping with it turned on every night, I realized how much better I was sleeping. Common street sounds like people yelling or car horns weren't waking me up anymore, and I felt a lot more relaxed while I laid in bed. It even eliminated my least favorite nighttime sound: the garbage truck that arrives around midnight and spends 10 minutes picking the trash from a high-rise office building across the street. With the Nightingale turned on, I couldn't hear it.

At $299, Nightingale is a very pricey white-noise machine, especially since you can buy a simpler version for $50.

But Nightingale has several different sounds, the option to control it from an app, and, of course, the fact that it's customized to your room. The nights I slept with it turned on, the sound enveloped my bed from all sides. I could barely hear anything outside my bedroom door or outside my window, meaning my sleep was less interrupted than usual. Plus, falling asleep feeling like you're in a tropical rainforest during a heavy rain is probably the most soothing thing in the world.

If you're serious about sleeping better, or you're ready to upgrade your basic white-noise machine, the Nightingale is a luxurious — but effective — option.
