If it is? You can record all sorts of sounds yourself and save the money.
Same with desensitizing, you can do pretty much the same thing with a rub rag. And get same or better results.
Save your money would be my suggestion.
I don't agree with you, yes they cost money but what person can do is download sound effects off the net and put them on a mp3 player or make a CD. I think it helps them on how they react to loud noises of different things.....a rub rag doesn't sound like chain saws/guns going off/kids screaming/etc.....
