Sleep Sounds is an online tool designed to provide you with a variety of free sleeping sounds known to induce sleep and sustain good-quality slumber throughout the night.

Sleep Sounds provides a mixing feature where you can create unique sleep music by combining different sounds into one soothing sleeping mix. For example, instead of playing ocean sounds for sleep, you can create a mix of ocean sounds as well as rain and thunderstorms, all on the same track.

Users can mix a wide range of sounds including thunderstorms, wind, ocean sounds, waves, campfire, creek, piano, birds, seagulls, crickets, light rain, heavy rain, etc.

We also offer several pre-made sleeping sound combinations, blending popular calming sounds. For example, there’s the “Nature-Forest-Stream-Birds” mix, which transports you to a tranquil forest, complete with the gentle flow of a stream and the melodic chirping of birds on a peaceful morning.

What Sound Is Scientifically Proven to Help Sleep?

Sleep experts recommend changing sleeping behaviors instead of relying on sleep medications to improve sleep. One effective change is listening to calming music or sounds before or during bedtime.

In fact, listening to relaxing ambient sounds has been found to reduce the severity of insomnia and works as well as using sleeping pills such as benzodiazepine “benzos”.

The better news is you do not need to listen to specific sounds or music. Any type of music can be used to mask ambient noises, distract your mind, and offer a pleasurable feeling when drifting into slumber.

However, certain nature sounds, as well as white and green noise, have been found to offer more consistent and significant improvements in sleep, particularly in noisy environments.

This is because these types of sounds, especially white noise, are better at masking environmental noises that may interrupt sleep. Hence, keeping you in sleep longer and more consistently.

Sounds known to improve sleep include:

  1. White Noise – Includes all sound frequencies that can be heard by the human ear, including fan noises, vacuuming sounds, radio static, and AC humming. White noise becomes a blanket when it’s produced by layering multiple sound frequencies.  
  2. Green Noise – Green noises are simply amplified middle-range white noises. They are known as nature’s lullaby because they mimic the sounds of nature. Examples include a gust of wind, insect noises, rolling waves, and rushing waterfalls.
  3. Pink Noise – Includes the sound of a steady river, ocean waves on a beach, and light rain. Pink noises are consistent frequencies with more even and flat sounds.
  4. Brown/Red Noise – These are lower frequencies with intense sounds. Examples include thunderstorms, heavy rain, and waves crashing.

Green, Pink, and Brown Noises are soothing, offering a relaxing feeling that makes you sleep faster.

With these positive effects, sleeping sounds should be at the forefront of your sleep hygiene since they are also low-cost, effective, accessible, and fun.

However, it should be noted that sleep sounds do not affect each person in the same way. This is where Sleep Sounds comes in.

By providing a wide range of noises, Sleep Sounds offers a playground to experiment with different sounds to see what works for you.

Combine different noises to see which soothing sounds are more effective at helping you sleep. Once you find the ones that work, proceed to use them regularly to make a healthy bedtime routine.
