  This combined with Distant Thunder soothes me so much! I used to go deep sea fishing with my great grandfather before he passed away and this just makes it feel like I'm back on the boat with him and enjoying the thunder and the sea.

  I love myNoise, and this setting really helps me sleep as usually it takes ages - the sound of crashing waves coming in on pebbles in the clear, orange sunset - lovely. Thanks, myNoise! :D <3 -Harry H.

  Thanks so much for this site. It is so well-designed! I really appreciate how simple and elegant it is. Ah, and there's the side effect that I can finally work relaxed in my cramped and loud office.

  My husband of 24 years has always snored I am truly blessed to have found this... I can honestly say I have not slept this good in years, somehow this system masked his snoring throughout the entire night. So a million thanks!

  This is my favorite site ever. Thanks a lot guys. I use to listen to waves noise all night long to keep my mind quiet. It works so well! This site is really helping me with my night paralysis. Since I sleep with you, my nights are nice and peaceful. Thanks guys. I LOVE YOU.

  I love my teammates but don't always need to hear them. Many thanks!

  After working at alone at home for eighteen months I've got a new job in an open concept workplace where I feel like I'm being subjected to a real-time, real life Dilbert podcast all day long. Thanks to myNoise, I can escape to the beach (or the laundromat or economy class) whenever I'm about to freak out. Phew.

  After a few minutes listening to the ocean waves I feel human again. I get so stressed out at work with all the people who think we work in a factory and it's okay to talk out loud. I work in an office and have to be on the phone a lot. So between phone calls, I return to the ocean and relax. Thank you so much for returning my sanity to me.

  This helps me focus when studying! It's truly amazing, Thank you so much for this beautiful and easy to use noise generator.

  Tweaked for a windy sand-dune — wind and rattling grass...

  Thank you for your wonderful work.

  This is great as it helps me maintain focus and concentration. It helps very much when revising for exams!

  Love this. The only thing that helps me sleep.

  Thank you so much! Listening to the ocean waves right now, windy coast preset.

  What a relief in an open-plan office, thank you!

  The underwater sounds are absolutely the most calming and grounding thing I could possibly listen to. They help me calm down when I feel restless and homesick.

  I absolutely love the sound of the ocean, it's so relaxing and always puts me at ease... I still miss the sound of the seagulls, though!

  We visit Maine (U.S.) whenever we can. These noises take me to our cottage on the edge of the ocean. Every day I miss the sights and smells of the water - but most of all, I long for the sound of the waves rolling in and crashing against the rocks. This website brings those dulcet sounds to my bedroom while I work on homework and study. Sincere thank yous to everyone involved in this company.

  I am trying your site to see if it will help my tinnitus. I have a mild hearing loss in the high range, but have only had about six days in the past year where I haven't continuously had tinnitus 24/7. The therapist who tested my hearing, mentioned listening to noises to block out tinnitus, while a full therapy would cost me over the $5000. Thanks for allowing me to try your sounds for free.

  This ocean noise is great! It's my favourite along with the fire one!

  You are a godsend! The surrounding noise preventing me from sleep, created suicidal tendencies. Your soundscapes saved me and I can function as a human being again. Bless you!

  This 'underwater' sound is beautiful.

  I like listening to this setting while listening to my Il Volo playlist, it makes me imagine that they're performing a concert on the beach in Italy.

  This has really helped me concentrate whenever it comes down to doing homework. It's a great way to stay focused and I would highly recommend it. Thank you from a girl from Idaho. ♥

  I truly recommend this website for help with focus and study. I find it really hard not to get distracted, so basically, to whoever makes these - thank you for saving my grades! Much love, 17 year old from Australia. <3

  The Rainy Shore preset helps with my homesickness. I always use it either at work or whenever I become too anxious. This website is so wonderful. Thank you and best wishes, Karolyn from Puerto Rico.

  I grew up next to the coast in a little Welsh village called Tywyn. I often find myself deeply missing the ocean environment, after all its where I feel most at home. This sound mimics exactly what the ocean would sound like from my bedroom on a stormy night. I find it so peaceful and grounding, I can't sleep without it.

  I tried to recreate the sound of Topsail Beach in North Carolina. I think I did pretty well ^^

  Quite simply AWESOME

  This is awesome. I can't sleep without it. Thanks so much for this website :)

  It's so soothing and relaxing. When coupled with the quiet chirp of insects from the Summer Night, I can drift off to sleep and dream about a calm walk along a distant beach, just staring out into the star-filled sky and the pure blue ocean.

  This makes me feel closer to my home in Thessaloniki. Many thanks.

  This setting combined with the Small Fan noise sounds like I'm in a beach house with a fan on, and can hear the ocean right outside my window...

  It's slightly sprinkling as you're sitting in the hollow of the cape. You smell the thick, heavy salt in the air, and the abrasive air on your skin. It's slightly warm, although it is cooling down from the weather and afternoon. The area around you is silent-uninhabited by anyone-and you are at peace. The clean atmosphere is calming.

  This mixed with the rain and wind sounds reminds me of humid stormy summer Florida nights. Perfect to fall asleep to when I'm upset or anxious. Thank you so much for this amazing site!

  Having set room heater to maximum, I listen to these beautiful sounds. It's like I'm on the see shore instead of f... office.

  So relaxing. Reminds me of my childhood summer home in Cesme, Turkey. The wind and waves are at a perfect balance for me.

  Float on your back in the waves! Worry not; you're far enough out for the larger waves to simply buoy you up gently.

  Before trying this I didn't realize that I wasn't sleeping well enough. For me it was normal to wake up a few times every night and even getting off my bed. However, from the very first night I started listening to this beautiful sound, I JUST sleep through the whole night. Nothing more changed. Any time I do so is just marvellous! I'm from the Caribbean and that sound takes me back there.

  The storm has passed. The wind continues to toy with the waves. All is calm. Your soul is renewed. You swim into the waves, letting them wash over you.

  You stare out to the waves, brisk wind blowing back your hair and stinging your eyes. Salty spray speckles your face and you lick chapped lips. The sea soothes your soul.

  The feel of the summer's breeze ruffling your hair and your toes dig into the sand, savoring the touch. You can smell the salt and taste the sea on your lips. The sky is a lovely sight, endless and so blue you can almost taste it. You gaze out over the cerulean depths... and... just... breathe...

  Heavy ocean wave sound. It's so calm. Inspiring.

  The air is misty against your skin, you stare into the horizon. The waves are rough, but calm at the same time, just like your heartbeat. Light rain drums against the ocean; it's a beautiful autumn morning by the beach.

  Best noise generator ever.

  Just stunning. Sounds like you're in the water..

  I moved from my seaside town to a big city, so this rainy seascape really makes me feel at home. Very relaxing and so helpful while I'm studying!

  Well basically my office is just like a chiken coop, too crowded with people with too much time on their hands so anything that kills that office background buzz does fine for me. This sound is amazing. Really keeps me away from here. Thanks

  I absolutely love this! I am a publisher/writer/editor/blogger of Food For Soul Magazine, plus home-school my 11 year old. I have a house of extended noise distractions with birds, dogs, cats, and kids. This site has been a God send. I use it to drown out everything! It helps me in my research, study, and writing. I have it on for my son to concentrate as well when doing his school work.

  He searched the horizon from the beach. His sapphire eyes darted to and from, trying to find the outline of her ship, but there was nothing in sight. Only the mounting dark clouds, which blocked out the sun and turned the summer sky black. The winds rose, and he watched the waves turn violent and froth with foam; but denied himself shelter until the rain came to blind his view with heaven's tears.

  This sounds exactly like lying on the beach, a little bit away from the waves, with a towel over your head as you doze in the hot summer sun. Perfect for relaxation and calming.

  This is the best website I've found for white noise help with sleep. It never times out, and is never interrupted by ads such as the disturbing ads found on you-tube white noise. All the sounds can be calibrated to your own taste, another option I've never found anywhere else. And best of all... it's FREE!!!!! I recommend it to everyone I know who has trouble getting and/or staying asleep.

  I tried to make it sound like your on a ship.

  Why does water on water sound so good? I just LOVE IT!!!!! Thanks so much for this website!

  Reminds me of camping on the beach and hearing the waves crash at night. Such a relaxing generator!

  This is so soothing to listen to with the fireplace soundscape. Reminds me of my old home by the sea.

  This website is fantastic. I love all the choices it gives and this Ocean Waves one in particular is lovely, it makes writing essays easier!

  This is a wonderful site. I like that there is no time out like there are on u-tube sound effects. I turn it on every night right before bed, and within minutes I slip away into deep sound sleep. And its FREE. Its the best ocean wave site I have ever found, being very real and not synthesized. Also unlike other ocean wave sites, this one does not have the screeching sound of seagulls.

  This is great to have at work. My office is often quiet - too quiet. I need just a bit of background noise to keep me going. This works perfectly for me.

  I really love this website, it helps me sleep much better at night. I love the ocean, and this just lets me sink into an oblivion of water and comfort.

  I have always wanted to live closer to the beach ever since I was little, it may only be an hour away... but this app makes it feel a little closer to home and calms me right down after a super stressful day. Thank you so much for developing this!

  Whenever I feel the least bit sad I play this with Fleetwood Mac's Albatross and I immediately feel better. Sounds like the beach I went to as a kid.

  This is the sound of the Pacific Ocean where I grew up in Santa Monica, California. The waves thumped even more loudly than this, and if you were lucky enough to live in a house on the beach, at night you could feel them shaking the bed. Sometimes, the whole house vibrated with the crushing, slamming NOISE of those waves. I miss the sound of that unleashed power. ekw

  This is my best try at emulating the sound of the waves in Shoal Bay, Anguilla, heard from the hotel room right on the beach. When I was young my parents took us there often for vacations, and it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I miss it dearly. This takes me back there.

  Reminded me of swimming. Love every single moment.

  Gentle sounds are so relaxing that even when I think about listening again, I am soothed.

  I can be somewhere else

  Excessive environmental noises cause me severe anxiety so badly that I wear earplugs when I leave my house. This website is fantastic because it helps me drown out the outside world at home or work.

  Relaxing sounds of waves rolling onto the shoreline with wind rolling off the ocean. Combine with Himalayan Bowls for a truly relaxing mix.

  Reminds me of childhood summers at Cape Cod.

  Gentle roll-off on this setting provides full ocean sound as if I am walking along the beach. This is a very relaxing and realistic noise generator.

  Honestly, I use this site almost every day. I've had insomnia since I was very young, so I listen when I'm falling asleep or going to bed; it helps me relax and turn off my brain for the night. I love the "underwater" soundscape so much. It's simultaneously calming and other-worldly (and it reminds me of going scuba-diving!). Thank you so much for your work!

  I just close my eyes and imagine I'm hanging out underwater, just floating and listening to the waves go by. Love this site <3

  Calming, relaxing, perfect!

  Thunderstorm at sea

  This sounds like you`re bobbing up and down in the water, listening to the waves crash against the shore both above and below the waves. -turningTheTech

  Ah, I love this so much! When I close my eyes, it's like I'm in the ocean and it relaxes me greatly and soothes my anxiety! <3

  Better than cocaine.

  This is one of the best sound generators that I have found. It truly has changed my office work environment. I will continue to donate. Thank you and keep up the good work.

  Middle of winter, freezing cold--but at least it can sound like you're at the beach. Awesome studying background noise.

  This preset open in multiple tabs (layering) = the seashore is in my living room. My tension headache is *gone*. Awesome site. Love it. Thank you!

  Natural Ocean Sound

  Relaxing deep

  I love it!

  Amazing and lovely. And sooooo real!

  Turns your business trip into a soothing vacation.

  Sounds just like sleeping in our beach house in Hawai'i

  Underwater Coma

  I chose distant shore... I like the sound of waves as it helps me relaxing...

  Reminds me of when I would visit my Grand Mama's place in California. Really brings back my childhood memories. Just like back then.

  Deep water, like the cradle of the world.

  Wow brought me back to my time in Maine. I use it for yoga and meditation over stressful exams. My friends and I LOVE it!

  Maui morning; what the waves sound like as you wake up in bed with the windows open.

  Calm and relaxing waves without anybody in sight. Just me on a tropical island with crystal clear water.

  I live near the Train Station and Many Rental properties. It is extremely noisy. I hope to get my first good night sleep in 6 months. Wish me luck

  This is like swimming in the ocean in the rain, doing nothing important. It's so relaxing I could hear it all day! It's best if you turn this on animate!

  Tunes out the outside world :D

  How a storm underwater would sound.

  Dark calming waves.

  This is what a storm sounds like from the lower decks of a sailing ship.

  This is the heartbeat of the mother of all creation. Meditate on your beginnings as the surface glistens far above you.

  Like waves against rocky cliffs

  Very nice and calming- perfect for creating a natural sound that you can really enjoy. Great job. :)

  Calms my nerves when I'm feeling anxious, depressed, etc!

  It takes me back to simpler times; for me, it's going to beach with my grandparents. It seems to just wash away the worries for a minute.

  This is amazing to read twenty leagues under the sea too.

  Simply perfect, it helps me focus and is perfect for writing fanfiction.

  I use it while working on the computer (Photoshop). Amazing program.

  A calm, misty day on the shore helps me focus while I write!

  AMAZING! Just click “vol+” a few times, then “animate”. I’m smelling and tasting ocean water … and suddenly … sea otters … marine iguanas … crabs of all kinds appeared in my office. I LOVE this.

  Reminds me of the days i used to sit out on peaceful beach.

  ← Storm at Sea!

  Very gentle, slightly muffled. It helps me sleep so much better, and I use a fan sometimes to simulate the ocean breeze.

  I work listening to this noise. It works pretty well :)

  Like the ocean in a distant dream.

  Stormy Days

  This helps me with homework, thank you!

  It helps me relax and chase my bad dreams away

  Makes me feel at home, and relaxed

  Smooth Jazz and Ocean Waves as icing on the cake. Yummy...

  This is fantastic! I'm all ready for a nap and i'm also ready to run into the ocean water or lay on the hot sand.

  Makes me feel happy and relaxed, like I'm back at my favorite beach!

  This is very relaxing

  Rainy Mix!

  It's like being just under the waterline, waves crashing over your head. Very relaxing for those who are just drawn to water.

  The storm is on the leave.

  Beach sound to mask tinnitus.

  I'm a California girl living in Italy. When I feel homesick, I listen to "the ocean" and it helps me sleep so much better.

  A such peaceful and silent beach, reminds me Croatian rocky cast, where I can be alone, and can think about the life.

  I used to live in this beautiful island where the rain sings strongly when it hits the tin roofs of the houses, where I could here the sound of the Indian Ocean everyday... Thanks for making me less homesick, and way more peaceful.

  I found my waterbed.

  This ocean wave noise has a deep, throbbing crash to it, without the higher frequency noises. It both feels epic and, I find, helps me to breathe slowly from the diaphragm.
