Welcome to myNoise, a website where serious audio engineering, creative sound design, and a scientific understanding of human hearing converge into unique online noise machines!

If you've arrived here by chance — maybe while looking for atmospheric sounds on the internet — be ready for a treat! Our noise machines are extraordinary just to experience, especially with your favorite set of headphones!

Background noise machines can be used in a variety of ways throughout your daily lives, and can be used by all audiences. They can not only help you focus while working in a noisy environment or help to settle your anxiety, but they are also useful in cases of insomnia or tinnitus. Fortunately, you don't need a specific reason to start listening to our background noise generators!

Discover our impressive list of background noises and relaxing sounds available for free.

Candy for your ears, tailored to your hearing thresholds

myNoise generators cover the whole audible frequency range, from 20Hz to 20kHz, over 10 color-coded sliders. Our calibrated noises are even better: they can be shaped to your personal hearing thresholds!

Calibrated noise generators are marked with a small calibrated target icon. Through a simple but accurate calibration process, these special noise generators can be matched to your hearing and compensate for your audio equipment and listening environment deficiencies, including the presence and nature of background noise. Calibration is unique to this website, and makes calibrated noise machines stand out from regular white noise machines.

As we get older, we all suffer from age-related hearing loss involving the higher tones. During the calibration process, we are able to measure your personal hearing levels, and adapt our calibrated noises accordingly. You'll be surprised to hear frequencies you thought were lost forever!

Listening to our calibrated noises is a truly unique and ear-refreshing experience at any age. The prerequisite is to perform the calibration once, then select one of our generators that has been engineered to work with calibration, such as our Rain Noise for example. Watch the following video to understand how it works, then go to the Calibration screen or straight to the Online Noises.

The Ultimate Noise Machine

Noise machines are great for blocking out background noises whether you're trying to work, study, relax, or even sleep. The idea behind an online background noise machine like this website, is to make use of the noises you like to mask the noises you dislike. The concept is simple, works extremely well, and does not require expensive equipment, such as active noise cancelling headphones.

Compared to conventional noise blocking machines, myNoise noise generators can be shaped to the frequency characteristics of the environmental noise one needs to block, and therefore achieve a better camouflage, or - in other words - a greater masking efficiency at quieter levels.

Listening to myNoise noise generators in a quiet environment makes sense too, and is even recommended to enjoy their optimal sound quality. Let our noise generators become your best friend when it comes to soothing children at bedtime, or during your meditation and relaxation sessions.

This site offers invaluable custom-designed noises for professionals as well. ENT and audiologists, this calibration procedure has been designed for you, and to be used for serious applications such as tinnitus or hyperacusis treatments.

Sound healing therapists will love the unequalled level of control over the frequencies radiating from myNoise sound generators.
