"The clarity of this CD is similiar to the hiss of a radio between channels--and you don't have to pay extra for that! If you've been to the ocean you'll realize that this is not what it sounds like. ;)"

"Sounds of Nature: Ocean Waves sounded like a good CD from most of the reviews. When it started up, the pounding of the surf was wonderful. And then...the seagull started. The bird cries seem to be dubbed over the ocean due to their startling clarity. Plus the bird was obviously perched on top of the microphone because it was so loud. No dopler effects from distances, no multiple calls, just a single bird. And the bird keeps jumping from side to side (left speaker to right and then back). Perhaps other birds join in later but I didn't bother waiting to find out. The purpose of the CD was to drown out office noise and allow me to concentrate. Instead I found myself flinching everytime a bird call came. The earphones came off and the CD is gone. Don't bother with this one if you're looking for soothing ocean sounds."
Clears one's mind of office sales calls

"With headphones, this CD does a marvelous job of knocking the surrounding cube noise down--pretty much wipes out sales teams' voices with ocean static. The sporadic seagull calls first cackled out like contrived screeches on metal but after a few spins I stopped harboring that notion. The volume level is decidedly consistent. I'm left wanting something different from a white noise CD because although the waves silence distractions, I can't say that they actually put me into a productive frame of mind. If you need a CD to wipe your mind's slate clean in a distracting environment for five or ten minutes, this is it. If you need a CD that does that plus adds to your creative levels, this isn't a good pick."
