Default Screaming Meanie vs Screaming Meanie 2

Well I thought I'd upgrade from the Original model to the Screaming Meanie 2.

But now, Wish I hadn't.

The Screaming Meanie 2 differs from the original in the follow areas.

(1) A panic button- seems like a nice feature at first, but really just another single button to accidently get pushed when it falls off a shelf while you're driving.....more migraine headaches from driving for miles with that thing going off while looking for a 'safe' place to pull over.

(2) Hi-Medium- Low settings;

this is a nice feature for the already mildly deaf, deaf, hopelessly deaf sleeper.

(3) A clock feature;
guess this is nice feature for some- personally, I just set the countdown timer for 10hrs, 9hrs, 8hrs, etc.

If you really need a device to Blast you out of Bed--the Screamng Meanie is the one.

:shock: I have one of those things. I have never had that happen but it would be bad to have that thing go off when you are on the road.

My first trainer had one of those. OMG when it goes off....it'll wake the whole truckstop. I think Im scarred for life from that thing. My trainer never did wake up right away from it. Im on the top bunk trying to find my way down without hurting myself, and trying to find the bloody thing to turn it off.

I used to have one, and I had the same problem with it going off after it fell.

Eventually, I got so used to it, I started sleeping through it going off.

You must've had the 110db one, right? :lol: The 220db model will wake the dead.

It doesn't take much to wake me, I usually use the alarm on my phone and for the longest time I used the one on my watch. I just had to make sure I didn't sleep with my hand under my pillow.

Yes, and I slept with it right next to my ear.
