While we have categorized this alarm clock for teenagers anybody who has trouble waking up in the morning will get the benefits from this super loud clock. So if you know someone who sleeps like the dead and nothing has worked for them in the past prepare them to be amazed!

This is a great gift option for a heavy sleeper the only real downside is that it will wake everybody in the house it is so loud! This is an alarm clock like no other, described by one reviewer as a ‘God-given but Satan inspired gift’

Who would this make a good gift for?
Reading the thousands of positive reviews online there is certainly a wide spectrum of users. Of course there were the deep sleepers and teenagers who wouldn’t wake up in the mornings. The bed shaker was really useful for the hearing impaired as well for people who didn’t want to use the alarm to wake up other people especially if they had babies. Incoming college freshman commented on this, one said that he wouldn’t have survived his freshman year without it. Night shift workers also found it useful.
Volume – The sound on the Sonic Bomb is adjustable but at full volume is at 113db the same as a chainsaw. It also has an adjustable tone, if you find you get used to one tone then you can switch to another to vary your morning wake up call. The volume is also adjustable in both decibels and frequency of tone.
Bed shaker – This is a plastic disc about the same size as a hockey puck that does exactly as it says it shakes the bed and it really does, some reviewers reported that they could feel the bed shaking through the ceiling. Put it under you pillow and wake up to rattling teeth!
Large Display – There should be no issue with seeing what time it is when you wake up as the alarm has a big red LCD display
Customize – You can decide what you want to wake you up lights flashing, sound, shaken awake by the bed shaker or set it all for maximum effect!
Buttons – There’s a big snooze button on the top of the clock but the turn off button is situated on the front and is nice and small so not so easy to turn off by mistake.
The most reported issue that users had with this clock was that the process for setting the time is a bit clunky there is no hour and minute setting instead you have to hold down a button until you get to the time you want to set. If you miss the right time you have to go through the whole process again. Not a deal breaker but it could be annoying.
I’m sure everyone knows someone who this would make a great gift idea for – some might even thank you for it! All joking aside, this is a well thought out product and does everything it can to wake a sleepyhead up apart from pour coffee down their throat!
