Sonic Boom Sweetheart Alarm Clock Review

The Sonic Boom Sweetheart Alarm Clock. This is an alarm clock that makes an impression! I’ll be honest, I was a little intimidated by the thing at first. An alarm clock that vibrates your bed? Crazy! But I’ve been using it and it turns out to be awesome.

First, here is some basic info: The Sonic Boom Sweetheart Alarm Clock is an ultra-loud, bed-shaking clock with flashing lights. It features a 113dB alarm, which is three times louder than a typical alarm clock, and had adjustable tone and volume control in addition to a 12V bed shaker. Sonic Boom guarantees it will “get even the deepest sleeper out of bed in the mornings.” You can see a video of the alarm clock in action here: SB400ss.

After I received this alarm clock for review, I wasn’t sure what I should do with it since my husband and I already have an alarm clock with a dual alarm feature. But after using it for a week, I realize I love having my own. No more climbing over my husband to see what time it is! Now I have one next to MY side of the bed.

Here are the reasons I love it:

  • I actually love the look of it. It is feminine, yet powerful – a combination any women would want. The numbers are colored instead of the usual, dull green. This makes it easy to read when I don’t have my glasses on, but it’s not bright enough to keep me awake either. It’s just a very unique look!
  • The instructions were easy to read, and I probably could have figured it out without them. The dials are very straight-forward and it’s easy to find the gigantic snooze button in the morning when you’re half asleep.
  • There are two options for setting the alarm. You can turn it all the way off, or you can just shut it off for the day. This is perfect if you have to get up at the same time every day, because you don’t have to remember to set the alarm the night before. Just make sure you remember to shut it off on the weekends
  • The bed shaker is an innovative addition. I would have never thought to add such a thing to an alarm clock! I can’t imagine anyone sleeping through it.

You can buy your own directly from Sonic Alert for $49.95 (plus shipping and handling) or from Amazon. It is available in the U.S. and Canada.
