The Sound of Rain, without the wet feet
The sound of rain is one of the most relaxing sounds in existence. This sound alone eases away stress and makes everything outside look more calm and quiet. The sound of rain is great for helping one to fall asleep and for covering background noises.

This is so relaxing! I am an insomniac and have had trouble sleeping, but playing this through the speaker has allowed me to sleep better. Thank you!
I can blend my music really well with this! The Halo 3 Main Menu Theme is absolutely perfect for resting, I highly recommend it!
This is the best rain noise generator for studying! I like how it really sounds like raindrops and not just some staticky white noise.
This sound helps me remember about when I and my brother sitting in our house just watching and listening to the rain outside.
The rain noise is honestly so calming and helps me focus when I am studying. This is is amazing! Thank you.
Perfect for getting out the midday stress.
Perfect. Feels just like home.
Open plan offices aren't for everybody. Thank you for maintaining my sanity!
I can't thank you enough for this. I have tinnitus, and I've been looking for a decent rain sound generator forever, and being able to individually tune frequency so I can specifically tune out the ringing in my ears is amazing. I can finally get normal sleep again thanks to you.
I was doing my homework and unable to focus. Frantically trying to find something to help, I found this generator. I love how I can change the frequencies to my liking. They really calm me down and help me pay attention. 10/10.
I made this to go with "The Pilgrim" noise generator. Together, they sound like a mystical journey! Alone, the rain is a soft, low, and comforting. I'm in such a good place listening to this.
It helps me focus on my homework and makes me feel very calm. Love it!
♥ Living in Southern California I don't get a ton of rain, but every now and then I'll pop in some headphone, relax on the beanbag in my room by the window, grab a book, and pretend like it's the real thing.
♥ This makes me feel really calm, like watching the rain pour on my window while huddled up in a blanket drinking coffee! Love it.
♥ I love to listen to this with music for homework. Great for destressing C:
♥ This is really awesome... I have heard other Rain generators online as well but this is so natural, the best of all of them. This is so calm and if I close my eyes, I really feel that its raining outside. It is much needed in a hot and humid country where i am staying currently as there is no rain, never in 12 months and I miss my Home country so much where it used to rain.
♥ Definitely de-stresses me and helps me get work done!
♥ This is incredible. It's the perfect background noise for focus, and for drowning out those peskey key slammers that I find so distracting. Ever since I found this site, my essays and assignments have been so much easier to complete. Thank you so much!!!
♥ It's often perfect sunny weather here throughout the entire year and sometimes I terribly miss the cold, rainy weather and when my room is cold enough, I put my headphones on and listen to the rain noise here and it really feels like it's raining outside.
♥ As I'm currently juggling writing a novel and working on homework for college, I find the sounds of rain to be impossibly soothing in the midst of chaos.
♥ Love the variety.
♥ I have really bad adult onset ADHD, which causes me to not be able to focus on reading very well. Not being able to concentrate on reading is quite a bummer for me because I used to read very frequently when I was younger. Using the rain noise in conjunction with a fireplace screensaver I'm finally able to get through stories again without issues. I just sat down and read some Stephen King!
♥ I've struggled to concentrate in the office all my life- even the sound of other people typing on keyboards distracts me. I've tried other "white noise" sites and this is the best- I like being able to adjust the frequencies. It's still a struggle, but Rain Noise really helps!
♥ I get headaches more often than I like. I know what my triggers are, but I can't always prevent a headache from cropping up. Putting this website on doesn't remove the headache, but it allows my mind to unfurl enough to start relaxing, which is step 1 in the headache-be-gone plan.
♥ I love this setting because it feels like rain on a small river.
♥ The rumbling thunder associated with the relaxing trickle of rain, helps me relax when studying or trying to sleep. A little bass boost would be really really good if your sound systems support it.
♥ These settings make me feel like I'm driving through the rain, which is really relaxing and helps me sleep.
♥ I discovered this site two months ago. For the software development indispensable. Very good!
♥ I've always loved the sound of the rain. This site mimics it so well that I've sometimes even found myself looking out the window!
♥ I always feel like there is a looming threat in the clouds, now I can hear it!
♥ I love the sound of rain and I also love the sound of being underwater so I tried mixing the two together.
♥ This setting really helps me to unwind and relax. It helps blocks out my computer's fan noise.
♥ Rain Noise has eased anxiety I have around living with an unstable housemate. I don't react to the sounds of doors slamming and angry muttering much any more. It's running day and night. I wish it was on a machine other than my computer so it wouldn't be dependent on the internet. Much gratitude here. Will donate now.
♥ Rain was always one of the things I liked in school. It always meant getting home early and sitting under the dark but comfortable atmosphere. I only use this at night because it doesnt work when the sun is out.
♥ Definitely de-stresses me and helps me get work done!
♥ Nothing helps me focus on writing, as well as come up with the scene much more clearly in my mind, than these noises! Thank you so much!
♥ I use this every night. I cant sleep without it!
♥ The noise is beautiful, it helps me to do my homework without hating it. Thanks :D
♥ So relaxing!! I love it for sleeping and relaxing. :D
♥ This reminds me of a heavy storm and it is perfect for me to fall asleep with. It surrounds me with thunder and rain and really gets me in the "sleeping zone" as I like to call it. Thank you so much to this website for making my sleep more peaceful.
♥ ← This setting makes you feel like there's a storm gathering, but you know your safe. It fills you with relaxation. : )
♥ This is one of the most beautiful websites i've visited, professionally made and perfected with the custom slider.The perfect website for anyone searching for rain heaven.
♥ I absolutely love this website! It is so relaxing and it helps me calm down and concentrate on work that I need to get done.
♥ Last school year, when I initially discovered this site, I fell in love with it immediately. I would play my favorite genators (Rain Noise, Japanese Garden, and Healing water) while doing schoolwork, and it really helped me focus and relax. Nowadays, I still use it for schoolwork, but I found that its fantastic to fall asleep to, especially when paired with rain.today.
♥ I use this noise generator every single day in the office and it is absolutely fantastic. Rain Noise is my favourite by far, and the high quality sound, depth, and custom settings immediately calm and focus me. My productivity and stress levels thank you, and I cannot recommend this site enough!
♥ Hi, I am a student and from Pakistan. I often find it difficult to actually concentrate on something when not in library but somewhere else for example at home or any other public place. This sound generator has helped me a lot since it reduces extra stress and helps me concentrate. I'll definitely recommend to my friends.
♥ I always knew that the sound of water was relaxing, but I had no idea that playing rain or streams in the background constantly would reduce my anxiety, help me to be more productive, and get more restful sleep! Animated rain sounds are my go-to, switching between several to keep it non-repetitive, and my overall quality of life has improved tremendously! Thank you so, so much for this gift!
♥ This is by far the most relaxing noise, that I can make by adjusting the sound. You guys are bloody brilliant. Heck, how did you even make these sounds in the first place?
♥ Love this site! Thank you. My partner and I both work from home, and sometimes I find music too distracting, so this is great for avoid being disturbed by his phone calls and Skype meetings!
♥ I'm from North Western Oregon and this program helped me massively when trying to do things like write and do homework. Reminded me of listening to the rain as I fell asleep, which is basically the only weather setting Oregon has, so thanks.
♥ It helps me focus get things done. The sound of the rain is so calming even though I don't like rainy weathers.
♥ A true gift when you are in a home full of well-meaning yet noisy people and need to get some reading done!
♥ Your noise generators have helped me in so many ways. If I need to focus at work, have a chatty coworker in cubicleland, who I need to block out, or simply need to calm myself after a stressful meeting, these noise generators have achieved just that. Thanks.
♥ I have loved the sound of rain for a long, long time, despite the fact that grey weather does make my depression worse. Paired with some relaxing piano, this sound generator has helped me fall asleep, study, and relax during a panic attack.
♥ This website is the best, I love using it when I need to drown out the sounds of my classmates in school when I have a headache. Thank you so much for making this awesome website! -Bendy
♥ This is really relaxing and helps whenever I'm doing something and need background noise to help me focus. Would definitely recommend this!
♥ Thanks for this. It's 3AM. I have more homework than I ever had in my life. This helps me relax and focus. -a
♥ I love putting this on while I'm at school. It helps block out the chatter of my classmates when I have a headache and it also helps me concentrate when I want to write. I love it! -Sarah (17)
♥ I love it!!!! Thank you for making this great program for free.
♥ Amazing! Helps me focus while working on schoolwork and very relaxing. The custom settings are great, I love that I can adjust it to the perfect frequency, I love having a good amount of bass while not being overpowered by the higher treble.
♥ This helped me so much. It helped me focus when I was studying for my SATs! Now I am a full time funder to help keep this website alive for people like me! Sincerely, Kelly Hash
♥ There's a youtube channel that plays jazz, and I simply love it. Sadly, their videos meant for rainy days don't have the rain effect that loud. I can barely hear it. So I turned to this site and play the rain as loud as the music. Perfect! <3
♥ I'm a part of a Creative Writing class, in which a lot of people, sadly, don't enjoy writing, but simply needed a laid back extracurricular, so they fill the room with whispers and giggles. This site is perfect for such an environment, just plug in your headphones and you are perfectly immersed in your work.
♥ I couldn't concentrate on writing my essay due tomorrow, so I turned to this generator to block out background talking and clear my head, and I was surprised by all the settings, and I absolutely love it! It has increased my productivity level to an all-time high. I will be back.
♥ This has helped so much while writing my thesis. Dealing with migraines and headaches alike, this helps me to stay focused and pain free.
♥ The best sleep has been made by this wonderful website!
♥ Great website, really immersive atmosphere.
♥ OMG... this is the best Rain Noise Generator ever created! I LOVE it SOO much! This is why I listen to two of these.
♥ When the thunder roars, I get nothing but shudders down my spine. When the rain droplets sing, I feel peace. This has helped me find myself as I always turn to myNoise when I need to meditate, reminisce or introspect. I have fallen in love with this website because I never get disappointed, there is every customisation for every mood I am in.
♥ I really do love the noise of the rain. It's relaxing and easy to the ears, and when it starts to get loud at night for whatever reason I just turn it up and close my eyes. It also works well when sitting in class and needing something to help keep me focused on my work, and not on my classmate's chit-chat.
♥ I feel more concentrated when doing my work with this because it's relaxing. With this, the days of me feeling stressed over heaps of homework are finally over! :)
♥ This is the perfect noise to help me fall asleep. The deep rain and thunder surrounds me and I can just drift off as if nothing bad is happening in my life.
♥ This reminds me of the rainy afternoon drives my father used to take me on the way home when I was little. It feels very comforting to listen to when I feel lonely and when I want to relax.
♥ The thunder settings help me concentrate on my work without the distractions. It is endless and has no loop which makes it a great experience. Truly transforms me when I work. Also helps in my procrastination.
♥ It reminds me of the rain before or after a storm, which is usually either relaxing or exciting if we've had a lot of hot and bad weather.
♥ Getting Wet with my personal hearing curve really feels like I'm in a bubble in the middle of a rain storm. Extremely soothing and helps drown out most noises at work.
♥ This was the very first generator I used when I first discovered myNoise. I was struck with tinnitus as a teen. For two years I could barely sleep at night because of it, until I found this site. I used rain noise mainly to mask my tinnitus, but a year later I noticed - I could sleep without it. I could still hear my tinnitus, it just didn't bother me anymore. We made peace!
