I've used this so many times to get me in the zone while studying or doing homework and it works 90% of the time. Honestly, this entire website is a blessing and I don't know what I would do without it.
I actually wanted to thank you for the "masking" series that you have on Spotify, but this noise generator is similar. I live in a small apartment with my boyfriend, who is an avid gamer, and this has helped me so many times. The apartment is literally just one big room save for the bathroom, but the masking series drowns out the talking and clicking in the background and helps me concentrate.
My neighbor keeps playing very loud music, and with this, I can study! :)
I wouldn't be able to function without White Rain some days. I have a boss that plays obnoxious talk radio daily and refuses to lower the volume. Playing this soundscape is the only way I can get relief from the anxiety-inducing noise pollution he emits and get work done in semi-peace.
Love White Rain! I use it to help me sleep in peace. It is incredibly soothing and helps me fall asleep quickly.
I never thought something like this could have so much diversity. This is a new art form. I use it in the office, even when no one is around. It's also a great noise blocker for some of my loud office workers. Thank you!
I work in a cubicle farm, and I use the speech blocker setting. Someone could be standing right next to me and I can't hear them talking! It makes it much easier to concentrate.
This setting absolutely melts my brain, at least at near midnight. I love the balance of rain/noise in this generator.
This is absolutely fantastic for me - has made focussing on work so much easier within a noisy shared office. Thank you so much.
I like to listen to this while I write essays for school. It helps me think clearer and calm my nerves.
I personally love a nice moderate treble with a deep, rumbly bass, and almost no high frequency. It sounds a bit like a slow, dark storm like the ones I used to get back home. Helps me get to sleep every night and doesn't annoy me when I wake up in the mornings.
Helps me sleep much better than a fan and also helps keep my dogs calm during fireworks!
The speech blocker is perfect to use in a busy environment 100/100
My tastes definitely aren't common, but I find that turning up the higher sliders is very comforting.
Wow... white rain adjusted with this preset. With animation mode at shuffle. Just kick back and listen. The sounds get so real you may even open your eyes to see if it isn't really raining outside.
Great for coding in a noisy office.
I have some really great neighbours that won’t stop moving their chairs and other stuff at any moment in the morning and during the night. Since I tried everything with them and can't afford to move as I'm a student living with my family, I put this sound at 46 volume and OH THANKS ! I can work no problem and sleep!
♥ This one is the one that helps me study the most.
♥ This is the ambience to use with Binaural for sleep.
♥ Best way to get some rest after many long days.
♥ White Rain set to "speech blocker" and calibrated is perfect for erasing the normal conversation of two people in the next room. Unfortunately, they still haven't come up with a sound that blocks out the drunken screams of undergraduate theater students.
♥ Speech blocker settings is perfect for when I need to study, especially since I can get easily distracted by other random noises <3
♥ I've tried so many white noise apps and sites, this site is by far the best I've used. It's particularly good for drowning out snoring due to its deep bass, and being able to adjust the levels means you can filter down sounds that might stimulate your mind like for me, trebley or raindroppy sounds.
♥ Not gonna lie, this is great with Black Hole and Twin Black Lodges both on timeless and this one on gentle rain.
♥ Helps me sleep when I'm tossing and turning in bed, good stuff.
♥ Comforting and a great alternative to the songs I usually would listen to, which are full of lyrics to distract me from what I'm doing (revising for GCSE's). Would recommend.
♥ My favourite website for studying background music!
♥ Helps me sleep when my mind is too active to rest. Deep bass and light trickling trebles really do the trick.
♥ Such a nice and peaceful way to unwind after a long, rigid day.
♥ Brilliantly when you're trying to work with a noisy building site just down the road:DThx v much
♥ I love this. It really helps me focus and calm down if I'm ever feeling anxious.
♥ I love this generator. It helps me to focus and to reduce outside noise. It also sounds so natrual! Here are my settings. Hopefully you like them too!
♥ As someone who suffers from severe depression and anxiety issues, staying calm is a difficult task. This helps me feel serene and relaxed, and sends my mind to happier places.
♥ This is without a doubt the best noise-screen I have found (and I have tried a lot). Did not realize that making a donation was even an option, but well worth it!
♥ It sets me indoors as the rain pours from the sky, threatening to thumder but never does. A day for doing nothing and feeling fine with that.
♥ A very loud bass is very calming to me, I hope this will calm others down as well!
♥ This is very similar to the sound of the rain in my hometown. It takes me back to my childhood.
♥ I absolutely love the white rain simulator. I just found it today and it is helping me to stay focused so I can stay on top of my school workload!
♥ I find it really hard to focus, but this helps a lot while I'm studying for the exams. Here's my Hearing Curve, see if it matches with yours! ;-)
♥ The way this cancels out noise is amazing. It just works. I know that this is a setting, but meh, in case you're too lazy to turn each slider higher, here you go. :3
♥ I have anxiety and PTSD and it gets really hard to focus with all the loud noise in my head at times, especially when studying or late at night. This helps SO much it's not funny, I've been doing so much better nowadays thanks to the sound of heavy rain blocking out my bad thoughts.
♥ Wow, I saw Dr. Jan "Honza" Cernocky's review and thought, "I know that name!". He is quite a distinguished professor of speech acoustics, and a fan of Dr. Pigeon's site! Well, it is a great site, worthy of accolades from the top down!
♥ This one is a bit of a louder variation for when you're around the house and you wanna hear it a bit everywhere. Good for constant background noise. <3
♥ This one is perfect. I leave it on pretty much constantly.
♥ myNoise is the reason I will be graduating college. It is the only thing which reliably helps my brain to focus.
♥ The exact sound I hear whenever it's raining here while I'm inside the house, I love it! Now I feel sleepy, haha.
♥ As someone who loves the rain... this has helped me to sleep more times than I can count.
♥ Perfect for any hangover or headache in general. 10/10
♥ An awesome website! Greetings from Brno, reference given by Honza Cernocky :)
♥ This is remarkably good at blocking voice in an open plan office, in conjunction with my noise cancelling headphones and the 'speech blocker' pre-set. I just have to crank it up a little to handle the more vocal of my colleagues though ;-)
♥ I discovered a mix of noise generators that perfectly capture my favorite childhood experience: a summer storm has knocked the power out, and you're sitting on the deck watching the rain because it's too hot inside. Combine White Rain, Distant Thunder, and Desert Wind. Love it!
♥ I have a really hard time staying focused while studying, so studying for 25 minutes with this in the background is really nice. It also makes the room feel a little less empty. I highly recommend using this, there are so many benefits.
♥ I suffer from auditory hallucinations pretty often. Recently tried the White Rain generator since I heard having white noise can help, and also because I've loved the sound of rain since I was a kid. It's helping a lot; one of the few things that's helping me stay sane. It's greatly appreciated. No other rain generator site has done a better job at natural 'white rain' than this one for me.
♥ I have adhd and insomnia, and this helps me stay focused when studying & it helps me fall asleep. Very soothing <3
♥ This is actually great for combatting headaches. I have to experiment with frequencies but if you find the right one it feels like it 'hits' the headache and is sort of massaging it away. Thank White Rain for helping me to work even when I'm headachey and tired!
♥ Takes my mind off the many, many thoughts I have on a day-to-day basis. Thanks <3
♥ This sound makes me feel like I'm home. It's easiest to work on writing my essays when I'm home. Thanks so much to whoever created it.
♥ Oh my... The brown rain setting is just... so perfect. I'm nearly crying as I write this.
♥ Love it! Helps to cut through all the fog in my brain when I'm revising, to keep me awake and focused. After a while, it just blends into the background and I hardly notice it's there, beautiful <3
♥ I had a horrible night of sleep and my anxiety just sky-rocketed. The White Rain sound with the personal calibration feature helped me A LOT to survive through the day and as a great sound blocker when you don't want to hear the stressful sound of people yelling in the office. Thank you Dr. Pigeon.
♥ I have PTSD and am helped every night by this website. It is interesting how different levels of noise put me in different states of mind. Thank you.
♥ This sound reminds me so much of when I'm laying in bed at night in the summer and listen to the rain after the worst of the storm has passed. That always helps me relax enough to fall asleep, so when I discovered this website, I adjusted the sliders to make it just like that rain. Now I honestly cannot study or write without this in the background. Thank you so much for the wonderful site! <3
♥ I'm suffering from Tinitus, and myNoise is just saving me every night when I try to sleep and sometimes during the days if the noise is too strong. It covers the inner noise and let me forget my problem for some time. I've bought some of the noises on the phone application and now I've donated for the online site, because it is the only way for me to say "thank you".
♥ Great for sleeping. Helps with my anxiety condition which can make it very hard to sleep. Thanks myNoise ;)
♥ Best website ever. I love that you're able to adjust the sound! Rain is the only sound that helps me concentrate. Thank you for this!
♥ Always struggled on focusing on my essays, but this is the first thing that had really worked! Love it!
♥ This one sounds like your inside somewhere but you have a window or door open. its distant but you still hear the rain. But not as in a muted way.
♥ Haha this one adds a 2nd-order low pass filter to the sound, making it more distant and gentle.
♥ Really helps me study and drown out my distracting thoughts.
♥ This is the perfect combination of rain and white noise (well, I use the brown rain settings, but you know what I mean). I've been playing this every night while I sleep and it's helped me fall asleep faster and sleep deeper. It drowns out the sounds of outside traffic and the activity within my own house but isn't distracting. I love this website, and I love this noise generator.
♥ This is by far my favorite background noise to have on when I'm trying to do my work. It gives me a calming noise to listen to so I won't procrastinate.
♥ I work 40 hours a week or more at a cubicled office job. Usually I listen to music or podcasts to tune everything out, but when I really need to focus, I use this noise. I always felt the sound of rain was very soothing. After calibrating my hearing curve and setting it to animate at 2x speed, I find it much easier to get my work done.
♥ This really helps me calm down when I write, and it lets me concentrate on my homework. Thanks!
♥ I got ADHD and can't focus if I hear a single noise, but this white rain helps me so much. I think without it, I would've drop University already. Thank you so much !
♥ I have a lot of schoolwork to do, and it leaves me stressed. I also have General Anxiety Disorder and Depression, which leads me to often having difficulty focusing, not even bothering to do the work I have to do, or in some cases, having panic attacks. Today I was panicking severely, and this managed to calm me down to try and study. Thank you. -Tea
♥ White Rain paired with Aeternitas sends shivers down my spine!
♥ I am an author, and White Rain is a perfect choice to drown out the sounds of a busy household, relaxing me and helping the words to flow. Bliss.
♥ This is perfect for me whenever I feel homesick. The noise reminds me of sitting in my room, watching lazily as the rain taps the window and hums against the roof. It brings me comfort and an instant memory when I feel lost, so I thank you mynoise for bringing us more than just sounds.
♥ This site was invaluable in getting my book written. I originally used it to block out the sound of other people around me when writing but pretty quickly it became an essential part of the writing process just putting my headphones on and bringing up White Rain got me into the writing 'zone'. I'll be using it for my next book, too.
♥ This generator is amazing. I close my eyes and it almost feels like I'm getting wet. I imagine being in a pine forest with water dropping off of the needles. And now I can almost smell the pine... Incredible.
♥ This is an awesome site. Finally I found a tool to generate rain without thunder, as on most tools there is very loud thunder that disturbs me. Thanks a lot for this implementation!
♥ Set slightly steeper than brown, this noise set is a huge help for my anxiety when paired with Distant Thunder. This site in general is really important for me.
♥ I have minor tinnitus, moments of headaches and frustration, sleeping issues added on, but all that is cured with resting my head and listening to the rain you've provided. Thank you.
♥ I've suffered through chronic migraines since I was a young boy. I expected this to just help lull me to sleep but it actually helps reduce the pain.
♥ Just handed my dissertation for my final year at university. Who ever made this, thanks! I wouldn't have gotten halfway to where I am now without this. I'm not sure you know of all the impact this program made on people, nor how many people it helped. <3 dev
♥ I love listening to this while I draw, it calms me down and it helps with my art block! Rain is my fav <3
♥ I absolutely LOVE mynoise.net. As an author, writer's block is a serious issue, and this website can almost instantaneously help relieve it. Rain On A Tent, White Rain, and other rain/water-related generators help to write sad scenes, the Atmosphere generators basically help to write whatever theme (fight, happy, sad, etc.) goes with the scene, and Stardust is my go-to for any occasion.
♥ Earlier, I was so hurt, angry, and stressed that I felt like I was going to vomit, so I came here to relax, like I always do. Someone else suggested that I play music on top of this, and I decided to play a very calm, water-themed music track from a video game I'm fond of. They work extremely well together, and this is calming me down greatly. Kudos to the creators of this sound; it's magnificent.
♥ I suffer from adult ADHD and on atomoxetine medication for more than 6 months by now. It's quite draining to the emotions and thats where this site has done wonders to me. White rain helps me keep attention while working, regulates my breath patterns and I don't even notice listening to any sound. Cave chimes shush the inner blabber and that's gold for meditating. Big love to the developer.
♥ I would have never have got my class work done without this (-:
♥ I always understood sound emotionally through music, but discovering myNoise taught me I could experience it physically as well. The tension in my head is relieved and even my thoughts seem to clear up. I can almost imagine the fresh scent of damp grass and the coolness of the air. My ears, even when they seem tired of all sounds feel relief. Thank you for lulling me to sleep, White Rain.
♥ I have autism and noises really disturb me to the point where I panic and can't concentrate at all. My ears are constantly ringing and I can't make it stop. This noise really helps me calm down, I always listen to this to relax and focus on things :)
♥ I love using this to sleep. I usually get woken up by noises but now I don't! Thanks, this is no ordinary noise loop!
♥ Hi! You got me through writing my thesis in a never-quiet-enough library this past year. I just donated to say thanks :)
♥ This has helped a bunch with meditation, sleeping and staying calm and focused on the tedious work that I have to get through every day, and even while focusing on my hobbies. Can't wait for the Android version of White Rain, but until then, I use an mp3 of 8 hours recorded from my computer to help me sleep and keep from waking up from outside noise. This is no ordinary rain sound loop.
♥ As someone who moved to a place where it only drizzles three times a year, all your rain noises are the best. I used rainymood for a while until I started to pick out the loops, but this website has such awesome customisation abilities. Thank you x1000!
♥ White rain really helps me concentrate on late night studying and daily school work. Thanks!
♥ Inside a building during a rainstorm
♥ Listening to this leads to dreamless sleep. It helps to ease stress.
♥ This is going to save my college career
♥ Covers up the annoying AC outside my window so I can concentrate! Love it
♥ I combine this with the train noise while I'm at work to block out the office noise. I don't know why it's so relaxing and helps me to concentrate so much, but it does. Thank you, Dr. Pigeon!
♥ I have autism, and I am extremely sensitive to sounds. This blocks out all the horrible people who make painful noise. A+
♥ I work right beside a server room, the low frequency of the brown rain really helps cancels out the noise, and help me concentrate.Thanks for making my life so much better.
♥ This is quite possibly one of the greatest things I have ever come across. I struggle with ADHD, and, after finding this, am completely comfortable doing work. Thank you so much!
♥ I love, love, love the grey rain preset. It's just a very effective, gentle noise-blocker.
♥ The absolute best for recovering from a panic attack, or even just a feeling of agitation and anxiety. I've only known about myNoise for a month, but now I'm not sure what I'd do without it!
♥ Thank you so, so much for this! I have been suffering from tinnitus for six months now and today, on my birthday, it was quite annoying and almost driving me insane. I don't even know why I googled 'white noise' but I'm glad I did. I am so grateful for this website and for the first time in weeks I can truly relax thanks to the noise of White Rain. I downloaded the app immediately! Thank you! <3
♥ This sound right here is the best for concentrating on work. I wouldn't recommend it if you need noise blocking though!
♥ I work as a web developer in a noisy office and find peoples conversations very distracting when I am trying to concentrate on writing code. However I find the brown rain is extremely effective at cancelling them out, without being distracting to me. John, web developer.
♥ Thank you so much for creating this treasure of sound for us. I am using it for my therapy practice and also at home in various ways. Today I am enjoying the White Rain. Also, your site is lovely to use and look at as well. Thank You!
♥ I'm writing a book, and I don't like to write in silence. But I also can't concentrate with songs, so I listen to this. It's great! Every time I want I can hear a thunderstorm or a much softer rain, I love it! Thanks from Argentina!
♥ This noise is so perfect for me: I start to think it's gently raining outside. Especially with the increased higher tones.
♥ One word : PERFECTION.
♥ This one sounds like you're inside a building - it goes great with the caf noise :)
♥ I'm a little in love with this sound. Have already recommended it to many.
♥ I love the sound of rain but can't listen to the Rain Noise generator because the sound of individual drops of water makes my jaw and ears itch (I react oddly to 'plink'-type sounds) and breaks my concentration. This is absolutely heavenly, obviously rain without individual droplets.
♥ I find White Rain an excellent way to surpass distractions. I love to set the EQ according to surrounding noises in order to override e. g. my neighbour's subwoofer or high pitch hoover. Fight the Noise with Noise! L:o)L It is way better than listening to loud music as it doesn't hurt your ears. Thanks a lot for this website, great idea and great engineering. Maciek, web designer
♥ Real good to help chill out. Distresses, and helps to focus when you gotta work.
♥ I love this white rain. It is so soothing, helps with my anxiety and I can turn the bass way up to drown out everything else and concentrate on my work. Thank you so much for this website!
♥ I'm feeling quite anxious and have a headache but I'm trying to get back up on my feet and clean up my room - this soundscape is keeping me grounded and making me able to actually do it. For some reason it works a lot better (less painful on my headache) turning the speakers backwards so they face away from me.
♥ I have major sensory issues, and I have this playing at my house to drown out cars, birds, and just bumps and general noise from my family, and it's helped me be calmer and more able to function at home. Thank you so so very much for this incredible site.
♥ I'm a student and have anxiety problems and a really passively noisy roommate who whistles near-constantly. This almost completely drowns him out, and is very soothing. I can finally concentrate on work when I'm at home. Thank you so much for this.
♥ Sometimes when I'm feeling particularly anxious and can't relax, I try to calm down by listening to rainy sounds online but often unless it's just right it can actually make things worse. This generator is great and being able to adjust, reduce and mute the bass tones is an absolute blessing.
♥ I just noticed the timer. YES!!! I don't know how I'd never noticed that before. This will make going to sleep at night that much easier. Thank you!
♥ Really nice! Great for concentrating on homework!
♥ I'm currently in therapy for anxiety with possiblile psychotic symptoms. My therapists finds it peculiar that I can't simply 'don't listen' to speech I hear, be it real people or a transmission, I follow even when I'm not interested and/or busy. My family still refuses to give up on their TV marathons in the evening, Brown Rain is the first thing that finally makes the dialogues incomprehensible.
♥ This is just amazing: noise cancelling headphones + white rain + The Last Goodbye by Billy Boyd. So peaceful, which is a really nice change from crazy, stressful, everyday life. <3
♥ Took another listeners suggestion and listened to this and music at the same time. This is amazing!
♥ I had a horrible case of Tinnitus. It was really really bad. Last week, I downloaded a generic rain sound and have been doing great with it. But with finding the right octave, I think I can totally defeat the tinnitus by retraining my brain to not produce it. I think this site is just what I need!
♥ I know my noise isn't the actual rain noise anymore but just the continues 'thunderboom' -ish base sound is very relaxing and helps me concentrate as someone who is VERY easily distracted.
♥ Thank you! This is the best thing for if I want to block out any other noise while I'm trying to study! It's really relaxing as well.
♥ I love this, it sounds like a nice thunderstorm without having to get wet. Helps me focus. And when I'm playing games, and don't get angry. Like, AT ALL. :) Love it
♥ This is SO relaxing after a hard day's work... It lulls me right off to sleep and calms me down a lot.
♥ Makes studying a little less stressful :)
♥ Finally, a customizable rain noise generator that actually approximates pure noise! Time to go to sleep. I usethe brown noise setting, but I like to vary it up a little bit.
♥ This is the perfect blend of bass and treble to mask everything and let me get work done. Thanks for this great tool and the productivity it ensures!
♥ This is so soothing. It helps me sleep and relax every night. I love this site and this sound.
♥ I have moderate hearing loss in both ears, plus tinnitus consisting of a different set of multiple frequencies each ear. It has been maddening at times, adding to that the noise of neighbor dogs barking, all adding up to many years of sleep deprivation and associated health problems. Calibrated White Rain is masking all of that and probably more than necessary for quality sleep.
♥ Thank you so much for this! All the noise in my office has caused fairly severe headaches, and this is by far the best solution I've found to help me focus and avoid all the sound that normally drives me crazy.
♥ Living in Australia, hardly ever get heavy showers. Even when they do come, they don't stay for very long. Unfortunately, they're my favourite kind of rain, and I've always loved hearing it thundering on the roof above me. Now, the rain can stay for as long as I want, and animating it makes it feel more realistic.
♥ I have Tinnitus and it has been causing me anxiety and frustration, I love the "softness" of the violet sound which I am using to habituate to the noise in my head, beautiful, THANK YOU! :)
♥ This rain generator is absolutely heavenly. When I listen to it I can feel my stress and anxiety melt away. It's also great for background noise while working or for layering with music. A++
♥ Whenever I'm feeling upset or sad, this rain generator helps me calm down and blocks out noises from my parents watching TV and stuff. It's great for when I have to do homework. I like to lower the highest frequency and raise the lower frequencies so it won't hurt my ears.
♥ This with the Rumble Only preset on Rain noise makes the perfect wintry rain without the fear of actual thunder and lightning. Soooo relaxing!
♥ The storm is lost behind you, and it's suddenly the sound of driving on newly paved roads. You can almost feel the tires spinning outside while someone takes you far into the night.
♥ Very imaginative work. I like a lot the Rain noise, but this is even better to focus and relax. Great work, Stephane!
♥ First and foremost - there is this: GRATITUDE. I live in Palm Springs, CA, and have a very stressful life at present. Having tried various other rain generators on the web, I was disappointed. White Rain, however, allowed me to dial in what sounds like 'real' rain, and this has made my sleep much better. I'm so thankful for this site, and for the effect it has had on my daily life.
♥ This is just amazing. When I listen to this and it helps me write, draw, and study.
♥ This and the traffic noise sounds like being in a car during a rainstorm. It's so soothing; I really love it.
♥ This setting, along with some relaxing music, makes me feel incredibly at ease. It reminds me of falling asleep when there's a storm out, just without the thunder. It's odd, but it's soothing.
♥ Perfect for when I need to sleep, helps drown out the busyness of my thoughts.
♥ This is such a perfect noise machine for me --my personal curve cranked up a bit. There's just a little hint of thunder and I sometimes get the impression that there's a car driving on wet asphault just outside my window. Very soothing and nostalgic.
♥ Now this rain noise is the sound of English rain. This is what our days sound like, city and countryside, so if you're English and homesick, this page is the place to go!
♥ What I call perfect at any rate. That nice, consistent white noise of rain with just a little looming thunder overhead. I love this.
♥ ← Inside during a rain storm.
♥ It sounds like I'm outside getting wet with some cold light rain. Very calming.
♥ Thank you for going through so much trouble to source your sounds. I have been looking for a rain noise free of synthetic sounds, but that resembles white noise. Thanks to you, now I have it!
♥ This is a really strange generator, in the best way! The normal rain generator is bubbly and relaxing, but this rain is a totally different beast; windy, cold, and heavy.
♥ The white rain sound helps me focus on my work; that is, at least until I fall asleep! Like a summer day, when the blistering heat is broken by a steady downpour, and the coolness of the rain feels so good--this is relaxation...
