Grey Noise

myNoise is the only place on the Internet that is able to produce genuine grey noise, a noise that feels perceptually flat across all frequencies in the human hearing range.

True sources of grey noise are scarce, because they require taking your hearing thresholds into account, and to generate a sound that is specifically designed for your ears. It also needs to compensate for the particular frequency response of your audio equipment. These are the reasons why most noise providers on the Internet only deliver generic noises such as White, Pink, or Brown noises.

Among all noise colors available, grey noise has the highest efficiency, offering the same therapeutic performance at quieter levels.

  When on a ship you look to the horizon, it can help you to avoid getting sea-sick. This is the same kind of thing, but for knowledge work.

  Mixed w/ Cat Purr and volume turned up is a good mix of noise blocking and calming tones.

  A lot of low sounds and some music on lowest volume drowns out most of the outside noise even without headphones and as a bonus keeps the music from being audible from more than a metre away. I call this the strict work conditions mix.

  This website is a miracle and a life-changer! My roommate is always blaring his television at night and I couldn't sleep. Using this Grey noise, it's all canceled out, thank you!

  I have an obnoxious neighbor with a subwoofer. This helps to cancel out the stress in my shoulders when he's blasting those beats.

  Where White Noise cancels the sound around me, Grey Noise makes me feel like I'm being embraced by warmth, oh... yeah... and it too cancels all the other annoying sounds of the outside world when I just want to be left alone. Generally speaking, this noise generator helped me make it through graduate school and helps me to calm down, like an effortless meditation, or popping a Xanax.

  It`s like a wind in my head.

  Really puts your mind into a focused and calmed state. Great for studying and relaxing.

  This really calmed me down when I was getting worked up about something. Now I can focus on my work again. Thanks so much.

  I love it! Mixed with White Noise is amazing for schoolwork!

  Absolutely amazing. My little brother's classroom can be SO SO SO LOUD. This blocks all noise. I would definitely recommend this website. Keep up the good work :)

  Indescribably relaxing. Perfectly balanced as all things should be.

  Great for sleeping! My room is too quiet when the furnace is off, so I recreated the sound it makes and I play it through my sound system at night. Really comforts me and helps me get (and stay) asleep.

  A rushing, mighty wind hits you in the face!

  The bass has a frequency that is somewhere between thunder and wind, but is also consistent and bubbling, which surrounds me in a comfortable cocoon of sound warm as a quilt.

  Really good, doesn't auto-pause either! Thanks!

  This website has been a blessing for me. The mobile app and website work flawlessly, and in particularly both Grey and Brown noise work great. Amazing for noise blocking, focusing, thinking... you name it. Thank you Dr. Stephane.

  I think I might just have found the way of blocking out my awful neighbour's tv/radio. Thank you thank you!

  Just found your site. I had to send my noise masking ear buds back and am lost without a means of masking out a very annoying/aggressive neighbour who loves to play his bass to full overdrive distortion - may he crack his subwoofer soon! But until then... this might just work!

  Awesome stuff for concentration, even for someone with ADD!

  This is excellent. I have a combination of tinnitus and hyperacusis, and I can feel my hearing shift (relax) as I listen. I would really like to know the center frequency and Q of each band [Editor : see presets] Nice equal-loudness curve background, by the way.

  This helps me when I can't concentrate or when I get an anxiety attack. It's helped me progress in my master thesis. Moreover, it has helped me balance out my emotions when I can't do it without some help.

  I have chronic tinnitus, and this totally covers up the ringing without the need for playing my music too loud! It's awesome!

  Perfect for studing with a drummer husband practicizing at home! Thank you soo much.

  Grey noise! Who knew? This is what I always sought in white noise, but the sandy hiss of white noise always proved irritating after a while. This is like a pillow. It's like acoustic tiles for my mind; my thoughts come and... then they vanish... They don't bounce aound echoing behind new thoughts until the layers result in anxious cacaphony. A thought vacuum cleaner! Quite exxcellent!

  I work in a 'quiet' office and this drowns out the sound of people chewing like a cave man. I can't focus with lyrics, so this was not only soothing, but helped me stay focused and drown out the chatter and chomping!

  I turn up the bass and down the treble. Suddenly, I am the passenger of a first class suite on my own private jet. This is incredible and saves my roommate's life. Without this, I would've killed them by now.

  I love the grey noise machine! I boost the bass and kill the treble, and I am suddenly a passenger on my own private jet, soaring through the night skies. This is bliss! Thank you, so much!

  Wonderful for working in an office doing repetative tasks.

  An essential tool for making hotel travel sleep restful.

  Blocks out everything but doesn't bother your ears after a little bit.

  Thank you! Helped me a lot with panic attacks!

  Relaxing and soothing, perfect for studying.

  It saves my colleagues' lives. Without this site, I probably would have murdered them by now.

  Great for cloudy days.

  The perfect noise blocker. It reminds me of heavy falling snow on a cold night.

  Feel's like I'm in a huge cavern with water rushing in the background, I love it!

  This is what a large waterfall sounds and feels like, a constant rumbling with the trebly sound of splashing water at the same time. Thank you!

  Love love LOVE this while studying. I also love that it's adjustable. I can find just the right blend for whatever I'm feeling for the day.

  This sounds like a far away highway. It's great.

  I got a new job as an Admin at a University, my office is located in the gymnasium. The noises of bouncing balls, etc made it impossible to concentrate on my work and made me feel so irritable. Thanks to this site, I can now tune it out! I am so amazed!

  I love the ability to customise the sound to your own hearing! Much better results than generic white noise.

  Windy rain, love it!

  I've used this website every day for the past 4 years to help me sleep. A huge thank you to the creator for helping me deal with my insomnia, I owe you my happiness.

  The grey noise allows me to focus for hours!

  This is perfect for when my coworker has his music turned up - it's like a rushing waterfall but warm like a hug. I can focus so much better with this noise.

  Grey noise works perfectly for focusing on one particular task - my students use it, too.

  So realistic, sounding rain!

  Love this website! Its perfect for studying and drowning out noise. I love the waterfall sound.

  I showed up looking for some sci fi Starship background ambiance, but your site is a treasure trove of so much more. I love this service! :D

  Helps me study and do homework.

  This is AMAZING. Blocks out the sounds of my talkative brothers!

  I really enjoy this app. I use it with the Pomodoro time set-up.

  I use noise generators to help drown out my wandering thoughts and let me focus on what I really want to. Grey noise is my favourite so far. Thanks for making this noise machine website.

  Who needs organic peace of mind when my noise dot net slash grey noise generator is there to wrap you in the warm comforting embrace of its mind numbing rumble. Take me into your loving arms grey noise generator!

  Helps me sleep better than THC does! Thank you for your hard work!

  Perfect while studying or just simply get lost in your thought.

  This calms me down and makes me feel warm and safe. I turn the bass way up and have it on when I study and need to drown out irritating noises or relax. Lovely site.

  A crying baby on my arm just got knocked out by a few seconds of this :D

  Really love this website, helps me study.

  Cross between hotel AC at night and airplane cabin, cranked up to 10. Focus is greatly enhanced when this sound is playing. I love this site.

  You can almost hear it changing and moving as you move between the frequencies. It sounds like I'm sitting beside the ocean with my textbook open. Awesome!

  With headphones, it's like a warm hug for your ears.

  As a tinnitus sufferer I have found sleep difficult and have spent many long tedious nights lying awake without relief. Then I happened upon your site one night when, in desperation, I was trying to find a masking sound that would help me get some rest. To be able to customise a sound that actually works for me has been bliss. I now call my personal sound my 'Velvet Lullaby' and it is wonderful.

  I love putting this on underneath my mp3's - makes the nuances of certain songs sound crystal clear. As an added bonus, anyone who grew up in the 80's like I did probably knows some songs just don't sound right without that touch of cassette tape hiss or record crackle - problem solved.

  I've been having trouble focusing on math work, but playing this noise is the background has helped me a lot! I definitely recommend to anyone else having the same problem.

  This noise helps me in all my activities, whether I'm trying to sleep or have a case of writers block, I can always find the noise I need!

  As somebody who has suffered from severe ADD throughout my entire childhood as well as my adult life, this custom sound blocks out all other noises, including my two 6 year old daughters when I am trying to get work done.

  This is great! Was trying to write my essay with constant screaming coming from upstairs, but now I can just tune it out and write. Now that exam season is coming up, I can put this on all the time.

  It's a windy day outside...

  It sounds just like Yellowstone falls, in the national park. There is an overlook half way up the falls. It has a thunderous but continuous kind of sound to it. It is frightening because of the power, but soothing because it is raging nature.

  Open office floorplan + horrifyingly annoying guy who won't shut the hell up = THANK YOU for customizable grey noise. I enjoy watching his mouth flapping while I can't hear anything!


  Makes studying geography a lot easier!


  Great for "open space" work environments! Thank you!

  Came to this site because of tinnitus, which sometimes seems quite loud (especially when trying to sleep). The gray noise customized to my "hearing curve" matches it so well, and I can't tell if my ears are still ringing.

  Helps me study with peace in the hostel while everybody else in the room is chilling out.

  Awesome! Thanks!

  Titled 'Hush'.

  Sounds like rain.

  This is very calming. Sounds like a constant rumble, helps me a lot!

  Baruch's noise

  Trying to get work done in a coffee house, this is a great way to help focus my brain.

  White noise makes me happy. It helps me be like buddha :)

  I use it to go to sleep - this website is great!

  Wow, that's awesome. Really helps me to relax and gather my thoughts.

  I like to experiment by combining two noises, like the wind for ambience and grey noise to mask my background distractions...

  Everytime I'm stressed out this noise helps me to slow down my nerves. Really helpful!.

  Wear your shadow like a cloak. Rest in the dark and follow your imagination to the places you have forgotten.

  I really enjoy this sound. It helps me being calm ans sleeping a lot. My sleeping problems are gone now. It is also a nice background sound to just get in a chilly mode after work. Thanks a lot!

  So I suffer from severe and frequent migraines. I found this website through a youtuber I watch and was curious as to what "Grey Noise" was. After I re-calibrated the sound settings to fit my hearing curve it gave me this wonderful sense of peace. My head stopped hurting and for the first time in years my insomnia isn't a massive issue because the re-calibrated Grey Noise quiets my mind.

  Not only did I achieve great calmness and focus, but also it appeared to me that I was a little more mentally capable, meaning that I was able to solve some math problems (homework) with greater ease than without the noise.

  It is so calming and perfect for studying, relaxing, even just to have playing in the background around the house. It helps me focus, or not focus, if I need to just not think for a while. I love this site!

  Perfect 'mask the loud talkers down the hall' setting. A little rumbly, too.

  It's really relax me, remember me the sound of ocean and the wind in a dark moonless night.

  It's really calming, and helps with my insomnia and sort of tampers my night terrors

  Helps me to focus and get work done while 'Open Door meetings' are happening in the conference room across the hall.

  This is so relaxing, perfect for working on homework!

  I use it to shush out my dad's radio on occasion, and it kinda reminds me of the joy and natural belonging I feel with water

  My custom-made grey noise helps me study. I get distracted easily and find myself reading over whole pages and not absorbing a single word - I've noticed with the grey noise that I can concentrate more and re-read less, which is a huge help, because this is graduate level work! I'm going to keep using it and see how much more I can do in the few hours a night I have to study. Thanks, My Noise!

  I've never come across a sound and been instantly transfixed before. It not only fills my whole head space, but it also calms me instantly.

Different shades of Grey

Grey noise files found on other websites or played from noise generator applications, only implement a generic hearing curve. True grey noise generators should take your own hearing thresholds into account, including a possible hearing loss, as well as deficiencies in your audio equipment or listening environment. Our noise generator achieves this through its unique calibration process.
