    Overall Satisfaction

    Very Poor as it was my 3rd alarm clock in 2 1/2 years due to defect and it had to be with battery issue. I would never get Sonic Alert Alarm clock again. It should last longer. I am very disappointed with Sonic Alert Company. The alarm clock should be off from the market immediately! (Posted on 2/19/2018)

  7. Love it.. but.. Review by JennC
    Overall Satisfaction

    I've bought this clock many times over the years. It's my favorite. It's loud, the bed shaker is the best, and it has dual alarms which is great for me and my husband. My biggest issue is that I only get about a year out of it and I have to buy a new one. It's always the same issue... the bed shaker starts shaking erratically and unplugging it is the only solution. The one I recently bought is perfect but I only expect about a year from it. (Posted on 8/25/2017)

    Something is wrong with the vibrator even if I shut off the alarm and hit the button to turn off it still vibrates. I have to unplug it daily to get it to not vibrate. I'm debating to get my money back or I hope they give me a diff clock. Something is wrong with this one.

  17. A great bedside clock Review by 4 deaf sis's
    Overall Satisfaction

    I had a ShakeAway until the poor thing died. It's totally dependable for me - and I work all kinds of shifts so knowing I won't oversleep is huge. At this point, I'm only using the vibrate. For me to hear the volume would wake the neighbors! I find the controls very easy to use.

    One sis uses a strobe alarm so this would fit the bill. Since the strobe also wakes her husband, she'd have the option of vibrate.

    I gave 5 stars because this unit does everything it claims. It won't "match your decor" but it gets the job done. I have asked for another travel vibrating alarm for Christmas. This one is not convenient for travel.

    I have shopped with Harris since they were the only place available. I still buy by mail because I know they stand behind their products.

  24. Overall good product. I've never been able to find clock the wakes me every time. This one does. Review by Paulene
    Overall Satisfaction

    After using the alarm clock with vibrate and lamp for a week, the alarm would beep and the light would flash and it would vibrate periodically all day and night. Didn't know what we were hearing and seeing at first. When I went to bed I found out. Kept me up all night. Needed the alarm to wake so I couldn't shut it off. Several times an hour it would wake me. After investigating, I unplugged the lamp, so I don't have that option anymore, and I don't have it going off all day and night. Love it otherwise. Wish that I had more options on the volume and tone I prefer a bassy pulse sound to wake me.

    **This is not typical behavior of the clock. Since the alarm clock doubles as a receiver for the Sonic Alert Traditional Signaling System, it is possible you have other equipment in your home that is sending false signals. Please contact us at (800) 825-6758 or and we can help troubleshoot. – Harris Communications** (Posted on 1/23/2016)

  29. Better than the old model! Review by Morty
    Overall Satisfaction

    I owned the older black Sonic Boom alarm clock and loved it all to pieces! But when I got my hearing dog, he woke me up fine with a regular alarm clock so I gave my Sonic Boom away.

    Now years later, my elderly dog is "retired" from alerting me to sounds I can't hear so I purchased a new Sonic Boom.

    This newer model adds more flexibility that the original didn't have (read the white model description -- the original was vibrator/lamp flash and tone/volume sound alarm only). You may or not ever need the additional functions, but it's nice to have those options.

    Over the years I have only ever purchased my assistive devices from & they've never disappointed me. They've earned my lifelong loyalty! (Posted on 12/11/2015)

    This is the second alarm we have purchased from Harris Communication for my hearing impaired son. He had one several years back and as a young boy, he literally destroyed it. he is now a junior in high school and needed an alarm clock so he could gain more independence and privacy in waking for school. This clock is perfect. It vibrates the bed and the audible tones can be adjusted to the right pitch for him. Thanks!

  63. Great! Review by Changemyraintosun
    Overall Satisfaction

    I have had this clock for over 7 years with no problem, it still works fine. My hearing husband even loves it because the shaking and flashing light is easier to wake up to. It's nice to have the one-touch to turn on a lamp in the middle of the night, too. The only drawback is that the battery would not fit in the slot so cannot use the battery-backup option. So if the power goes out, I am out of luck. Luckily, that does not happen much where I am. Don't know it that is something with this model in general or just the one I go. (Posted on 6/30/2011)

  65. Puurfect Clock Review by Playfulbeauty
    Overall Satisfaction

    I have had to have assistive awakening devices for almost 30 years now. I purchased one of these clocks right after they came out, another about 10 years ago and I am about to purchase my third one. I have found nothing else that I can hear, adjust the sound to the few tones my deaf ears will hear and shake my bed and pulsate my bedside lamp that is plugged into it all at one time. I am nearly totally deaf AND a very sound sleeper as well. This is a must have if you are a sound sleeper or deaf or both. IT IS A '10' FOR SURE. (Posted on 2/1/2011)

  66. Good but only lasts about a year for me. Review by Beverly
    Overall Satisfaction

    This purchase will be probably at least the third clock of this type I have made in about 3 years. My experience is that the clock and vibrator work great until the vibrator dies, which seems to have happened to me after about one year of use each time. I have cochlear implants, so am totally deaf when I remove them at night. The vibrator shakes the pillow hard enough to wake me every time. Just wish it would give some notice that it is going bad. My husband has heard the clock alarm from far parts of the house, so the sound is also great if you can hear at all. (Posted on 8/31/2010)

    At first I got this product and found this is really useful to have since we are hard of hearing, I had tried few different products in the past til I got this one several years ago (have to reorder this one again) until now my poor alarm clock conked out it final wheeze. I would personally recommend this product to anyone who wish to have one to wake up to.

  69. Excellent Product Review by Ender
    Overall Satisfaction

    I've use these kinds of alarm clocks for over 10 years now. They work great. I am hard of hearing so I cannot hear the conventional alarm clocks. I use both the vibration and lamp blinking methods....

    However, there are some things that can make this clock a better product.
    1.) one or two alarm time slots should be added to ease the settings for weekends and holidays.
    2.) Make the clock not display the time unless someone waves their hand in front of it. Doing this should save electricity and take the bright green glow out of the bedroom allowing people who need perfect darkness to sleep. (Posted on 10/26/2009)

  70. Can't live without it! Review by Schinamama
    Overall Satisfaction

    Since I can no longer hear without my hearing aids I have come to depend on this clock for over 10 years. I do not have a clue about other models.....this is the one for me.

    I put the vibrator under my pillow and have the light switch on also.
    When the alarm goes off in the morning I feel the vibrations through my pillow..... and since I have the vibrator high on my pillow it also shakes the bedframe.
    smile,,,,,, something my husband is not so keen on.

    The lamp goes off and on, off and on, off and on. And is really annoying so I jump to turn it off, which usually get me out of bed. But when I want to sleep an extra 9 minutes I can also opt to hit the snooze button. But then you have to go throught the whole thing again.
    AND>>>>>>> if that is not enough you can also turn the buzzer volume to screech the most annoying sound for those of you that can still hear.

    I gotta tell you. If you want to get divorced from your hearing spouse get one of these quick. They will sleep in a different house just to get away from it.

    Hope that helps. (Posted on 9/29/2009)

  71. Wonderful product Review by happygirl

    I purchased this clock 2 months ago and so far my husband and I absolutely love it! Our last clock couldn't flash a lamp but this one can which is why we like it. We also like the 5 year warranty that comes with it. My only complaint is that I no longer have an excuse to sleep in, smile. (Posted on 7/8/2009)
