Ideally, we'd all wake up peacefully at dawn to the sound of chirping birds. But all too often, the opposite scenario is playing out—by the time we hit the snooze button for the third time, we hear kids outside bustling into buses for school, and we're running 20 minutes late.

That's why we've rounded up the loudest alarm clocks that are specifically designed for heavy sleepers. Some are as loud as jet airplanes and jack hammers, some use vibrating bed shakers, and others won't turn off until you're standing on your feet.

Part old-school alarm clock, part Armageddon, the Sonic Alert combines pulsating lights, a 12-volt bed shaker, and a siren that can reach 113 decibels (about the same level as a jet plane before it takes off) to get you out of bed. With more than 7,000 (mostly 5-star) reviews on Amazon, this is one alarm clock that looks near-impossible to sleep through. "I basically sleep like a dead person, and I've tried everything," an Amazon customer says. "I was tired of sleeping through classes, work, and just about everything else, so I decided to give this one a try. The bed shaker feature works extremely well. If you're like me and you hit snooze while you're still sleeping without realizing it, you need this."

Good for heavy sleepers and people with hearing loss, this retro alarm clock isn't just stylish and super loud—it also doesn't have a snooze button. Nothing like a little tough love to get you out of bed in the morning! If you're a heavy sleeper and think this alarm won't get you out of bed, allow this Amazon customer to convince you: "I'm a heavy sleeper. Not the average 'has a hard time getting out of bed' type, but the type where I've been physically shaken and screamed at and not woken up. I've had firetrucks, ambulances, and police cars in my front yard and slept through it. This alarm scares the hell out of me every morning, but it sure does get me awake."

This compact, battery-powered alarm is ideal for people who travel and don't want to rely on a hotel's alarm clock or their smartphone to ensure they wake up on time.

We've tried almost every heavy-duty alarm on the market, but this little bad boy wakes him up every time." It also has a countdown timer, which can come in handy for scheduling medications and cooking dishes. Luckily—or not—it's sheathed in an extra durable case.

Even though he'll never let you sleep in, it's hard to stay mad at the Clocky Alarm Clock. If you hit the snooze button more than once, "Clocky" will roll away on his two wheels and hide, beeping and whirling all the way. Don't be fooled, though, he can jump up to a three-foot-tall nightstand and move quickly on carpet or wood in different directions. He's obnoxious enough that you'll have to get out of bed to chase him down and turn him off.

Made for people with hearing impairments, the Peakeep Loud Melody shuffles through seven extra-loud melodies instead of a beep or buzzing sound (who says you have to hate the sound of your alarm buzzer?).

If you've already invested in a loud alarm clock and you're still struggling to get up in the morning, a light alarm clock might help. Our bodies are designed to wake up with the sunrise—but if you need to get out of bed before dawn, a sunrise alarm clock can help. These devices gradually bathe your room with light, helping you wake up more naturally than the loud blare of a regular alarm. This light alarm clock features seven natural sounds and includes a white noise maker to help you sleep well at night.
"This light works as designed and wakes me up better than any other I've tried," writes one Amazon customer. "I was told by a sleep specialist many years ago that there's a certain frequency of light that stimulates the 'feel good' hormones in the morning—in the red/orange frequency—this has those. I am usually awake at about the right time before the music goes off."
