From The Manufacturer

The Sonic Bomb, AKA The Bomb, is for anyone at any age who thinks they might not wake up in the morning. At 113db, this dual alarm is sure to rattle your windows and force your eyes open. And if that doesn’t put your feet on the floor, the pulsating alert lights and Super Shaker bed vibrating unit will. However if the room mate needs a little more shut eye, switch off the sound and wake to the powerful bed shaker and let the roomies crash a little longer.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

This was the loudest model we tested, with flashing lights and a vibrating bed-shaker so you’ll never sleep through another alarm.
Even if you sleep like the dead, you'll spring back to life at the first blast of the crazy-loud alarm, vibrations, flashing lights, and bright red display of the Sonic Alert Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock.
The clock is backed by a five-year warranty, which is much longer than average.

This clock is incredibly loud and includes a shaker pad that is placed underneath your pillow to literally shake you awake.

The Sonic Alert Sonic Bomb SBB500ss is the perfect alarm clock for deep sleepers. This is the loudest alarm we tested.
That's mostly thanks to the bed shaker, which isn't so much a shaker as a knocker, at least when it was placed between my wooden bed frame and mattress, so it was like a hummingbird on steroids slamming a hammer next to my head.
In the unlikely event that the alarm clock's 113 dB alarm isn't enough to wake you, it also has a bed shaker and bright flashing lights to rouse you from your sleep in a decidedly unpleasant manner.
With 113db of volume, there is no way you can’t wake up with this alarm. It comes with the shaker we already mentioned as well as built-in alert lights.
The alarm is loud – 113 decibels to be precise – and the screen features enormous bright red digits and pulsating lights. This is not a gentle way to wake up but it’s designed for people who need something more assertive.
For the heavy sleeper, there’s no better option than the Sonic Alert. It comes with everything needed to shock a hibernating bear into getting it’s day started, so you’ll be woken up pretty much no matter what.

What reviewers didn't like

This type of wake-up call comes at a price—and being shocked into coherence may not be worth the extra cost to some. That and the fact that there’s no way to adjust the lights kept the SBB500SS from claiming our top spot.
A bit cheesy looking, overkill if you're not a deep sleeper
It's pricey for a clock.
- T3
It doesn’t have a USB port to charge your mobile devices.
It still has a couple of flaws though. Namely, because of the cord extending from the clock to the bed shaker, you've gotta have it close to your bed.
Not smart and definitely not subtle.
May wake up the neighbors, this is a serious alarm
