Drones are built from a single, unbroken, musical note − sometimes a simple chord. Their harmonic content is the only characteristic evolving with time. Therefore, drones constantly balance listeners between two hearing states: the unchanging and steady sound, and the ever-evolving tone.
The ever-evolving texture gives your mind something to focus on, while the constant pitch makes it virtually impossible to concentrate on anything but the sound you hear. Therefore, drones offer a very pronounced hypnotic character and are ideal for washing your daily worries away.
If you are looking for inspiring tonal noises instead, check out our soundscape section.
This sound generator is calibrated and outputs a pink-like spectrum when the sliders are horizontally aligned. Calibration is unique to this website, and can be used to compensate for your own hearing, audio equipment, and listening environment deficiencies: follow our Calibration Procedure once, then access Your Hearing Curve from the right column.

It took a while to adjust to the current version of Ice World after the update, but whenever I listen to this generator I'm still drawn to some bright place where I can breathe fresh air and my worries are dispelled.
This is a beautiful collection of drones. Thank you Dr. P for all that you do!
This is my first time really trying this drone and I love it! Combine it with Rain on a Tent and Fireplace noise and put all 3 on the fastest animation setting and it's so relaxing and peaceful!
I use this on a low setting to help fill the silence of my room at night. But because it is so quiet, it helps me to feel lost and alone. I love it.
Bright sunny and brisk Colorado snow.
Loving the new update to Ice World.
← It's like silence but it is noise. These specific slider settings are good for sleep.
This is really good with Black Hole.
I feel like in the cosmos.... Magic!
♥ This sounds random and good.
♥ Ice World is the most reliable sleep noise on the site, in my considered opinion. I've tried many and some work very well for a while but Ice World keeps me down all night.
♥ Try pairing this on Maris Tranquilis with Orchestron and Northern Lights on Deep Sky and you have the perfect mix. It's great for when I'm trying to work on something for one of my stories and makes me imagine an unfinished world left for the hero to discover, thousands of stars glittering them upon a pitch sky. A cool breeze blows past as ice floats on ancient yet newly formed waters.
♥ I love this! So calming and relaxing.
♥ A man in therapy told me about this site... I have to still look more... but so awesome!
♥ This is the best drone ever.
♥ This is amazing. Who did this deserves fame from the whole world. Put it up high and it reminds me of my celestial arcane interests. Thank you!
♥ Whoever made this glorious website, you are the most deserved AND most well earned human being for making such soothing sounds. Visualizing is a powerful thing in, almost, anything! If used correctly with the right sounds, such as this, it'll make those fictional or non-fictional things seem more real... Or 'Immersed' for a looser term.:)
♥ I loved this, it may seem like it will put you to sleep but it is so motivational for me. It helped me get all my work done in under an hour, procrastination-free. Thanks, <3
♥ Thank you for all your work man, I'm amazed by this one every time I listen to it.
♥ It sounds so crystalline, so pure and resonant. Perfect for soul food if I'm completely honest. This washes away everything I overthink and worry about in the day. Comforting, Soothing and Magical.
♥ Very nice and soothing! Perfect for a tranquil mind.
♥ Wow I am speechless, what an amazing gift. THANK YOU.
♥ Perfect, deep, if you can't relax with those high tones. So soothing. Slows my heartbeat down.
♥ This is amazing. I feel like I'm at the center of a beautiful, magical conjunction.
♥ Was using this while meditating and accidentally fell asleep. XD Still really good. I love all the sounds on this website.
♥ A fun thing to do is combine different settings on different pages. You can make a pretty complex little song.
♥ I made an Ice Cat :D
♥ Out of all the noise generators on this site, this one is my absolute favorite. It's fantastic stress relief and it has helped me fall asleep more times than I can count. I hope this is what Heaven sounds like. :)
♥ While I have tried all the drones from this website, Ice World is by far my favourite. It feels like magic. Like phoenix song from "Harry Potter", it's relaxing and it takes away most of your fatigue when you listen to it long enough. Also, Northern Dawn setting from Northern Lights + Deep Sky setting from Stardust + Clear Water from Ice World = perfect. Just perfect.
♥ This is PERFECT!
♥ Helps me relax, I feel enchanted and free.
♥ I left this on as I slept while my blue/green/violet nightlight shimmered across the ceiling, sort of simulating an aurora. The next morning, I wake up, with this still playing, to the cool glow of fresh snow outside my window. Perfect... just perfect...
♥ So, I just spent a few hours studying for exams listening to this. It's so chill (no pun intended). I didn't think I liked the drones at first, but when I just put them on in the background, I half-forget about them and seem to focus a lot better!
♥ I love this generator, it makes me feel like an ice princess fairy, or something like I'm flying.It sounds like magic.
♥ This combined with the Humming preset on Anamnesis is just so perfect and haunting. Thank you for this site.
♥ This noise generator and all the other ones! keep me focused on what I'm doing. Normally, I bounce back and forth between projects, I have a problem with never finishing anything, but listening to these, I am able to sit down and relax and keep my brain on task and from everything being fuzzy from anxiousness. Beautiful, soothing, and ethereal; I can open my brain and accomplish more.
♥ This generator really helped me to focus on my stressful exams. Truly a life saver especially as I am currently on my third year college, where all the pressure at its peek. I can't live a day without hearing all these magnificent sound generators. I told my friends about this site and they love it too. Thank you very much! <3
♥ Wow! This is amazing! There is tons of positive feedback for this, this is great!! Really helps me sleep, and usually I have trouble sleeping! Thank you!
♥ It really feels like angels singing to me. It's awesome!
♥ I feel like I'm floating. It's amazing.
♥ This is my absolute favorite, it feels like I'm outside the portal to another dimension!
♥ This noise shapes the environment of my favourite dreams. This app is definitely one I'll be using before bed every night. After lying in bed for about 5 minutes, I felt like I didn't want to move. As a sufferer of generalized anxiety disorder, this is a new level of calm for me.
♥ This is truly beautiful and really helped get me out of a stressful situation today.
♥ Listening to the Ice World drone was the only way I could relax for a while: there had been a bunch of recent deaths in the family a while back, I lost my job, and we were almost evicted because the company that owns our house changed policies without warning. This and rain noise were the only things that helped me relax at the end of the day.
♥ Combine this with the aural scanner on Alert and find the most calming noise you have ever heard
♥ Beautiful! This is what I would hear if I went to heaven!
♥ Very very relaxing. Can be used to focus on homework or fall asleep.
♥ This one is very relaxing. I love how the bass just consumes me every once in a while.
♥ Pro Study Tip: "Deep Sea" preset with just a touch of mids, low treble and high treble. It makes homework doable, and makes me feel like I am floating.
♥ I put this on when I go to sleep every night, it's definitely calmed some of my night terrors and given me more pleasant and inspiring dreams. I absolutely adore this drone <3
♥ This coupled with Skyrim Atmospheres brings me such a calm and bliss.
♥ I always experiment with this FANTASTIC site, but a testimonial directed me to this world of... something hard to describe unless you hear it yourself. My head is always swimming with ideas, which interrupts my studying. (Which is what I should be doing now, but this is so good I have to write it down.) But with this, my brain was able to push away everything else. It made me delirious.
♥ For all you gamers out there, when I sit back and close my eyes I always picture adventuring through the Ice Cavern in the Ocarina of Time!
♥ This reminds me of adventuring through some ice caves and finally getting out, or something else along those lines!
♥ This is perfect for meditation. It feels like a harmony is going on in my mind when I Om. I can sit there for hours listening only to this drone, and it is the most soothed I have ever felt in my entire life. It's actually improving my meditation, which is improving my life.
♥ Wow. Set to Magnetic Fields, Ice Drone is amazingly relaxing. Works great when meditating or studying.
♥ Just what you need for writing a dissertation on cometary ices.
♥ Yeah ice world, you're cevin key skilled, real engineering
♥ Namaste! _/
