SOUND OF SLEEP
TO OUR CUSTOMERS,
Thank you and congratulations on your purchase of a LectroFan EVO from Adaptive Sound Technologies. You now own the most versatile fan sound synthesizer and white noise generator on the market today. With 22 unique sounds, precise volume control, and a built-in timer, LectroFan EVO is in a class by itself.
If you have any suggestions or ideas on how we can make our products better, please let us know.
REGISTER YOUR LECTROFAN EVO
Please visit astisupport.com to register your LectroFan EVO.
You’ll need the serial number, which you’ll fi nd on the bottom.
Your new LectroFan EVO came with this guide, an AC power adapter, and a USB cable. You can power it by using the USB cable with the AC adapter, or by connecting it to a PC or any powered USB hub.
Tip: Your LectroFan EVO needs to be connected to a power source to operate. The USB cable provides power. It does not support USB audio. By default, the LectroFan EVO turns on automatically when it’s plugged in, but you can change this. See Disabling Automatic Power-On later in this guide.
Press the noise and fan buttons to select from the sounds offered by each. You’ll hear a short tone when you’ve reached the last sound and your LectroFan EVO is back to the first sound.
The LectroFan EVO will automatically remember the last noise and fan setting when you switch between modes and saves the most recently used noise and fan setting when you turn it off.
Tip: To save your last setting be sure to use the “power off” button. The last setting will not save if you unplug the unit or turn it off using a power strip.
Tip: If you’d like to step through the sounds in reverse order, press and hold the noise or fan button for three seconds.
USING THE TIMER
LectroFan EVO plays continuously, but you can use the optional timer to gently turn it off automatically. Tap the timer button to begin. You’ll hear a short rising tone, indicating that the timer has been set for one hour. Each time you tap it, another hour will be added. When you hear a short falling tone, the maximum
of eight hours has been reached.
To cancel the timer, turn the EVO off, and then on again.
DISABLING AUTOMATIC POWER-ON
If you prefer that the LectroFan EVO not turn on immediately, you can disable this feature.
- Turn off the LectroFan EVO with the power button.
- Press and hold the volume down button.
- While you’re still pressing the volume down button, press and release the power button.
RESTORING FACTORY SETTINGS
Restoring factory settings will set the LectroFan EVO to turn on automatically, and reset the default sounds and volume level. To restore the factory settings, turn off the LectroFan EVO then press and hold the power button until you hear a tone.
USING THE AUDIO OUTPUT CONNECTOR
Your LectroFan EVO has a 3.5mm analog audio jack which you can use to send sound to a pillow speaker, portable speaker, headphones, or any audio device which uses a 3.5mm plug. When you connect an external speaker, the built-in speaker is turned off.
As with any audio source, be sure to keep the volume at a comfortable level when using headphones or ear buds.

Is this better than the Marpac Dohm-DS Dual Speed Sound Conditioner? (it’s currently the #1 best seller in sound machines on amazon). Why yes/Why no?
Let me explain my rationale. First, this has a feature that the Marpac does not, the timer.
Then, I went by amazon reviews.
This one has 4.7 out of 5 stars versus 4.4 out of 5 for the Marpac Dohm. It also has more 5 star and fewer 1 and 2 star reviews. Marpac had more reviews overall. 9879 versus 5200.
Also, its no longer the #1 best seller, a $16.99 Homedics is.
I just bought mine today. They were priced the same. So all I had to go by were the reviews and the timer which is a feature I wanted but didn’t have to have.
(I got mine with a 20% off code for cyber Monday at jet. $32.80 net with free shipping.)
Can it run on batteries? If so, for how long? Also has anyone used it overseas?
Considering the small amount of power it uses (2.5 W) it should be possible to run it off of any device that can steadily supply 5V at 500 mA DC. As such, if you can find a battery pack that can output 5V @ 500 mA and has a USB socket on it the Lectrofan should run off of it no problem. As for how long it can run off of a battery pack, it would depend on the rating of the battery pack being used.
Will it run for 8-10 hours straight?
I use it for my babies, they sleep 12h. It runs until I turn it off (unless otherwise programmed).
Does the unit remember the last setting or do you have to reselect every time?
It remembers the last sound chosen
