Description
‣ "Turns the creation of ambient noise into an art form." - Apple, App of the Day ‣ "A better way to block distracting conversations when you work in an open-plan office or cubicle." - Wall Street Journal ‣ "Of all the ambient noise apps I’ve tried, myNoise® is the best. It never repeats, it has top-notch sounds, and it is just plain fun to use." - Cult Of Mac. ‣ "We've covered many online noise generators in the past, but myNoise® is different: it calibrates background noise based on your hearing range and listening devices." - Lifehacker. myNoise® is free, with White Noise, Rain Noise, Ocean Noise, Binaural Beats, Spring Walk, Temple Bells, Tibetan Choir and warp speed, the ultimate white noise machine for Sci-Fi fans. The idea behind a noise machine, 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. 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 myNoise®! Compared to conventional noise blocking machines, myNoise® generators can be shaped to the frequency characteristics of the audible nuisance that disturbs you, and therefore achieve a better camouflage, or - in other words - a greater masking efficiency at quieter levels. myNoise® will cover background noises whether you're trying to work, study, relax, or sleep. Listening to our sound generators in a quiet environment makes sense too, and is even recommended to enjoy their optimal sound quality. Let them become your best friend when it comes to soothing babies at bedtime, or during your meditation and relaxation sessions. Some of our noises are truly special: our so-called calibrated noise generators cover the entire audible frequency range, from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, over 10 color-coded octaves. Thanks to our unique calibration procedure, each calibrated generator can be made spectrally flat to your ears. As we get older, we all suffer from age-related hearing loss involving the higher tones. During the calibration procedure, we are able to measure your personal hearing levels, and adapt our calibrated noises - such as the rain noise - accordingly. You'll be surprised to hear frequencies you thought were lost forever! Calibrated noise generators also compensate for your audio equipment and listening environment deficiencies, including the presence of background noise and its nature. We regularly add new generators that you can find in the Download tab. Check them out, some of them are free to download. If you are a noise enthusiast, purchasing the "All You Can Hear" package guarantees that you will get unlimited access to all generators, including future ones. There are more than 150 generators available for download today, including 40+ calibrated ones. Enjoy! Terms of use: these sound generators are provided for personal/private use only. myNoise® audio stems are subject to copyright and shall not be used in any other context without permission.

SAME as the title!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Perfect
by uritaki on 2020/05/19 05:59
I use this app almost every day at work - as a spa business owner this is pretty much perfect for every client. I can make individual ambient combos for each person and with the ability to adjust the noise variations it never feels repetitive or annoying. It’s also perfect for group DnD chats for that extra bit of immersion! Love it 💕
Stellar app
by Sllbt on 2020/05/13 13:06
I have struggled with insomnia most of my life, and nothing has ever helped me as much as this app has. I can turn on one of my favorites about a half hour before I try to sleep and by then I can go right out. For me, the water and ocean sounds are too picks; the ferry ride, the peninsula, and pebble beach are three I love already, and I am finding new ways to love all the rest too. Being able to fine tune the sounds makes all the difference; I’ve always been frustrated in the past by liking most of a ‘background’ sound, but there always seemed to be a factor mixed in for me that ruined it. Not now! The variety of recordings (and incredible clean quality) make this an app worth every penny. If you’re someone who could benefit from calming sounds for any reason, this is the app for you.
Great app!
by locklyle on 2020/05/11 22:24
Ok, so I don’t usually write reviews, but this app is so good it’s worth it. I have had it for about 10 minutes and I’m already in love. It’s super customizable, so if you don’t like the default settings for one particular sound, you can completely change it. You can customize it for yourself, or you can choose from a long list of presets. I have not yet explored all the features, but from what I can tell, this app is totally worth it. Two suggestions: Maybe have a little tutorial in the beginning? I mean, it’s not super hard to figure out on your own, but it would be nice to know about all the features up front. The second thing: I wish that the app had all the same great sounds as the website! Other than that, it’s an amazing app and I totally recommend it.
My daily unwind
by Retired-Coastie on 2020/05/10 22:39
I didn’t like white noise at first. Now it is heard daily at our house to keep grands on schedule, the dog from barking, and allow our nerves time to relax.
A godsend
by Kasiered on 2020/05/01 19:25
I recommend this to friends, family, and coworkers. The app and it’s site provide endless soundscape options. Multiple treble/bass mixture options helped me a great deal with focus and anxiety. And I love that you can pay the flat charge for all downloads, plus it’s not laden with ads. Thank you for not making this subscription-based!
Very nice noise generator

Very nice noise generator
The Best
by Bbhallbb on 2020/05/01 02:44
I stumbled upon the MyNoise website about a year and a half ago when searching for ways to block my very loud office mates. Since then I’ve downloaded the app and recommended it to literally anyone who will listen to me! I love the degree of customization that can be achieved with this app!
❤️
by Avery1209 on 2020/04/30 04:37
This is amazing. I love that you can customize your sounds, and make your own! The main thing that makes it 5 stars it the fact that it plays even if your not on the app! I think that is the best feature.
Great for studying
by AudioMick on 2020/04/30 03:12
I use this all the time while studying, it’s great for blocking out noise in rooms, or even at home. I’m pretty easily distracted, and this helps a lot.
432 hz etc?
by AppleOclock on 2020/04/29 15:49
any chance you can allow these to be heard in 432hz, 693, & other meditative ranges? thank you.
White Noise
by Ilovehorses08 on 2020/04/24 17:48
This was a great app! I was able to create and customize my own white noise sound to help me relax and be peaceful.
Amazing sound quality!
by Tribalpilot on 2020/04/22 12:26
I don’t often write reviews, but this app continues to amaze me at the quality of sounds it provides! If your looking for a great white noise app, this app is the best one out there in terms of quality of deep rich sound.
Extraordinary App
by Rkj7738 on 2020/04/21 16:49
This app does things with sounds I didn’t even know were possible on an iPhone. Not only can you mix up to 5 different tones/sounds at once, you can use an equalizer board to pick which portions to accentuate. Furthermore , you can then even overlay that mix you created with music or sounds from another app, such as Sirius or your music library. So, if you wanted to create a mix of waves crashing with jungle bird sounds with monks chanting, and then overlay that mix with a Steely Dan song, yep you can do that. This, you will have endless creative music possibilities with this. Software makers like this deserve our highest support. Their talent is exceptional.
Incredible, versatile noise generator
by ishouldbeking on 2020/04/18 19:03
This app is so much more than a white noise generator—it contains multitudes, literally. Rain sounds, ocean waves, natural sounds and unnatural ones, soothing tones for meditation and the ability to create infinite combinations of paired sounds, this is one of the best apps I’ve ever used. Whether I’m trying to sleep, or meditate, or read, or write, there’s something here that works. Buy the $10 option and get every sound - it’s absolutely worth it.
Most used program
by Swimmer-Bear on 2020/04/16 05:09
Currently this my most used program. I got it a little over a year ago when my favorite old program left with IOS 12. It is used nightly so I can sleep as I suffer from tinnitus Thanks for a great program. My only regret is that I wish it had pink noise due to my tinnitus
Sleepphones and menus don't work
by alayambo on 2020/04/15 23:58
my bluetooth Sleepphones don't work with the app (they work with Spotify) and the preset menus are blank 99% of the time edit: and i can't get the two finger swipe to work (i might just be awkward)
Amazing app!
by stas_key on 2020/04/15 07:02
But... when sharing on presets, the application crashes!
UI Bugs
by DrillionaireSM on 2020/04/15 06:39
Unfortunately the UI is partially invisible. Can’t view presets or Set an alarm or timer. Before the UI broke this app was extremely handy and served me very well.
Thank you for this app!
by VVI-IAT'S I-IER FACE on 2020/04/14 07:54
I’ve been struggling with falling asleep, but thanks to this app, it’s so much easier to sleep now! I love to draw, and when I do, I often notice it’s too quiet. I’ll usually play music to fill the silence. However, that doesn’t help me sleep and I usually have trouble finding just the right song to play to fit with the feel of what I’m drawing. And also, $10 for all the sounds?! That’s so AWESOME! There’s a sound for everything and anything! I’m listening to sounds as I’m writing (or, um, typing) this! Again, thank you so much for this wonderful app and to those thinking about getting this app, it’s so worth every penny! There are countless amounts of sounds and many people making new sounds every day (or so) and I would totally recommend it! n^ v ^n
Crashes, and where’s the coffee shop?
by Wishew on 2020/04/13 20:47
Just got this app today. When I go to try it, the app crashes. Plus, the whole reason I got it was because of Apple’s promotion of this app saying that it has a coffee shop background noise option. But I don’t see it on there! Did a “coffee” search... nuthin’. 💩
Doubtful
by wyldbrnch on 2020/04/13 14:29
I’ve tried the app and liked it enough to attempt to purchase the complete bundle for $9.99. But the in-app purchases won’t work. I’ve restarted the app and deleted and reinstalled the app. Nothing works. If there’s problems with a in-app purchase I wonder what other issues will pop up. I’m doubtful I will continue to use the app.
A great app.
by Robacarp on 2020/04/10 03:44
Great soundscapes, and the ability to combine them is fantastic.
Love it, but can’t buy it
by Arick Conley on 2020/04/08 16:09
I love this app. I’ve purchased access on the web to use while at the office, but I can’t buy the all-access in-app purchase. The button for $9.99 is unclickable for some reason.
In or out?
by ericshmerick on 2020/04/05 23:17
Edit: to clarify some of the below, I also use Android and this app is a dumpster fire over there. iOS is better, but has a long way to go. Like the website a lot but let’s be honest, society doesn’t want to use a browser for anything on a phone. People demand an app to tell them to drink water, etc. it’s ridiculous but happens to be reality. This app is lacking and I understand why. Apps are very difficult. They break when the website is changed and the app isn’t instantly updated. Apps present a significant challenge in mimicking website features, particularly with a site like myNoise (publicly shared eq configurations, all of it). I agree with the myNoise owner who basically says don’t buy the app and just use the website. The aggravation is the app is costly and no doubt costs a fortune to maintain and build upon., but remains for sale. Then the developer puts some snark in the new release notes saying “apparently people want to use the app?” indicating their resentment for bad reviews or people wanting feature parity with the website. My armchair consumer opinion is to just shelve the app and don’t bother OR aggressively produce a product that addresses paying customer’s requests without eye rolls. Regardless, I use the app and it’s good enough, but end up using the website most of the time anyhow. If it was a superb app, I’d pay monthly, which I absolutely detest (revenue drips) or pay double what it is now. Are you in or out, devs? If not, just pull it from the App Store.
Cannot open app anymore/after new update every is working again
by TiyAmonet on 2020/04/05 22:13
I just got the latest update, and the app closes when I try to open it now. I’ve used the years to help soothe my sleeping patterns. Very disappointing! After another app update, it appears that everything is back to working the way it always has! Thank you so much for the quick response. I have enjoyed this app for years for helping me sleep. I truly enjoy the ability to layer tracks. Thanks again!
Crash issue fixed (updated review)
by peterlu234 on 2020/04/05 21:56
I have a 6s and it crashes now. Have been using this app for over a year with no issues until today. Update: the developers quickly addressed this issue. Thanks!
Version 2.7.4 Does Not Work
by Ian the Energy Man on 2020/04/05 19:59
The update that was pushed out today completely broke the app on my phone. Doesn’t load anymore.
2.7.4 back up and running
by Symbiotic relationship on 2020/04/05 19:11
2.7.4 resolved the crash on startup issue I experienced with 2.7.3.
Shortcuts integration needed
by vladgaus on 2020/04/05 18:42
MyNoise is a pleasing, easy to use white noise app that is very helpful at what it provides. Adding integration to the native Shortcuts app in order to allow the creation of widgets would make it perfect.
Fixed

App Crashing as of 04/03/20
by eyegnosis on 2020/04/05 02:21
Really enjoy this app - use it for multiple purposes on a daily basis...updated it today and now it keeps crashing upon opening the app. Even reinstalled the app as others have tried to no avail. Please fix this ASAP!!! Thank you in advance!! Stay safe folks!
Not working after update
by Wink7 on 2020/04/05 00:43
My MyNoise app won’t open after the last update.
Use it nightly
by MrGummischuh on 2020/04/04 19:03
I use this app every night and love it. But with the new update today 2.7.3, the app will no longer open on my iPhone.
Update killed it
by Mactopia1984 on 2020/04/04 17:14
Updated, wouldn’t launch, deleted it, downloaded it again, launched, saw the splash screen and it quit. Broken now.
Downloading extremely difficult!!
by Yagwara on 2020/04/02 03:37
I like this app on desktop. Cafe noise is very pleasant. There are many nice options. But on iOS, I’m trying to download just one noise. If I leave the app, or my phone locks, the download stops, and has to start again from the beginning if I return. So I have to keep playing with the app while waiting for the download. Which would be okay except that after fifteen minutes, the one noise I paid for is less than half downloaded. I am not going to poke my phone constantly for forty minutes just so this one thing will download. And that’s just for one background noise. Because of this, the app is not usable.
Not able to purchase All You Can Hear
by Unspecific_nick on 2020/03/28 16:46
I tried purchasing the All You Can Hear for $9.99. It popped up a dialog asking for my password, which was strange because I have fingerprint enabled. I had to get out of the app and go into my password manager to copy my password and now when I click on the $9.99 button, it does nothing and won’t allow me to purchase. I can still make single purchases, but not the “All You Can Hear”. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I’ve tried logging out and back into my Apple account and nothing helps. It still doesn’t allow me to make the purchase.
Perfect for tinnitus masking
by Treesntrees on 2020/03/26 00:07
I’ve used this app for years—almost an infinite variety of sounds with the way you can control the equalizer sliders. And you can mix sounds, so I layer tinnitus masking white noises with different natural soundscapes to prevent getting sick of the same sound all the time. It’s extremely high quality sound too—this app is a fundamental part of my life honestly, I couldn’t sleep without it. Highly recommended if you have tinnitus.
Amazing
by Egjftijfeegjasd on 2020/03/16 18:18
When I discovered this app a couple years ago I was just looking for something that played white noise, burbling water, or general nature sounds when I slept. But it blew away my expectations and offers more than I could have thought of on my own. Usability and customization is excellent. Variety and range of options incredible. The passion, experimentation, diverse tastes, and creativity of the app’s creator and his love of sound and audio comes through strongly. I increasingly explored new things and found both familiar and obscure chants, numerous variations on things like waves, rain, and running water with subtle but tangible differences I never would have thought I would care about, and a wealth of both natural and electronic / synthetic noises and soundscapes than I use when napping, meditating, or even sleeping that have a magical ability to tune out internal thoughts and self-dialogue, reset by brainwaves, and restore my focus and energy. While on pain meds and recovering from surgery with my leg immobilized, listening with earbuds dramatically improved my ability to focus away from the discomfort and sleep at night. Initially I just listened on my tablet and smart phone, but the audio quality is greatly enhanced with headphones, or decent earbuds if you’re not in a position to wear bulky headphones. It’s hard to imagine being without it now!
Helps me ignore Tinnitis when I’m reading/writing
by shiphassaled on 2020/02/27 22:08
I truly love the MyNoise app. It has given me an escape from the high pitched Tinnitis in my right ear. It even helps me sleep. I’ve read about similar apps, but what can beat a Spring Walk? Tinnitis can seem much louder when I don’t feel well. I just put in my earbuds and turn up MyNoise.
Love it!
by Mebby88 on 2020/02/21 13:20
I have listened to numerous rain sound makers and they are always not quite right. The first time I listened to myNoise I sat there grinning like an idiot! The rolling thunder is perfect!
It’s take too much space on iPhone
by SHLOMO64 on 2020/02/20 12:23
It’s take too much space on iPhone and iCloud. Much more thAn app itself. Actually like this app but do not have so much space and data. It’s very common in those type of apps, probably need looking for some else
A different noisemaker
by Stee-rider on 2020/02/19 18:14
This app pays a lot of attention to detail, and does interesting things such as varying the equalization as it plays, so even the same looped sound isn’t quite the same as it was previously. Excellent sound choices, including a nice “cafe” which is great for blocking voices in a noisy office. A couple issues. First off, the equalizer has a control where I use a two-finger drag to change all sliders together. Unfortunately this only works in one direction... up. Once I’ve gone up I can’t get it to go down again, except by switching to a different sound, then back to the one I’m working on. The second issue is that the sound catalog isn’t well organized. It’s not easy to find things. The search is okay, but overall I mainly find new things on the web site, or simply by scrolling and seeing what I find randomly. Good app overall.
I graduated college because of this app
by Love7654321 on 2020/02/13 23:35
I could not have asked for a better productivity-inducing app. It flawlessly blocks out noise from inconsiderate roommates and yapping co-workers. It allowed me to focus on my work in some of the most annoying conditions. I do think that the website offers a lot more sounds, such as the sailboat which is my favorite. It also helps me with my anxiety when I just need to calm down without all of the stimuli around me. It’s perfect for those craving to slow down the madness around them and those yearning to create their own little worlds. :)
One of a Kind
by Violet Paget on 2020/02/13 06:00
No other app I’ve found allows you to select a kind of noise, like rain or a colour noise, and then recalibrate or change the frequencies. I’ve been able to custom-make the perfect sounds for my sleep with this app, cancelling out all of the irritating sounds of apartment living. I really can’t do without it now! The only thing is that sometimes I return to the app to find that all of my saved custom sounds have been erased. I am still rating at 5 stars because this app is SO useful. unique, and flexible, and I don’t have that many saved sounds, but I can imagine that this is a bit of an issue for people who have created a whole library of very specific sounds.
Awesome, amazing and use it everyday at work to drown out the noisy office environment.
by Binyacom on 2020/01/23 15:14
I am so easily distracted by noise when trying to work at the computer. Been using this for years now and the money for access to all generators was way more than worth it. The Flying Fortress and Port Town are my favs because people can be having a loud conversation right behind me and I am blissfully unaware.
My anchor
by Klevine4 on 2020/01/23 08:48
This app is my anchor. No exaggeration, this app has greatly improved my life. I have sensory issues and this keeps me level and calm. It keeps me sane when traveling through busy airports and train stations. At work in our open office. At home with my weird cat talking too much. When I get overstimulated or anxious my rain preset calms me like nothing else. It brings me back to center. When I have trouble sleeping, I listen to the same preset and it calms my brain enough to turn off. I like that I was able to take the rain noise and tweak it. Their preset scenes were a great starting point. So I started “on the porch,” dropped the treble a bit to reduce stimulation and increased the bass to add more calm. It’s perfectly tailored to the needs of my ears and brain. Thank you so much to the team that made this. On a daily basis you improve my life.
A wonderful app that keeps on giving
by Bluntside on 2020/01/19 04:31
A variety of sounds and excellent presets! The ability to modify the frequency based in multi levels of, bass, treble, mids & highs, only further make this app wonderfully catered to your desired sound. Not too simple nor complex to use. Perfect for any user who just wants quality ambient sound. Well worth the price!
Used to Work
by Mocha2007 on 2020/01/13 11:32
The app used to work, but then randomly decided it was gonna crash every startup. Even reinstalling doesn't fix the issue. Shame.
Best Binaural App I’ve Come Across
by AnemicMe on 2020/01/12 22:31
Worth the money and the extra sounds were worth investing in as well. The way you can blend them with each other and also simply adjust each individual eq is phenomenal. I often let the application run in the back ground and mix it with a YouTube vid of Eckhart Tolle or Adyashanti~like magic. It’s worth noting that the quality of the sounds are pristine and full of detail, nothing cheap here.
Excellent App
by Traditional Teacher on 2020/01/08 18:04
After doing some research, my wife discovered that a popular audio/video channel compresses the sound, which ruins the whole effect of the audio. We live on a noisy, 5.5 lane street and had difficulty sleeping until we found this. Even the dog is sleeping better. This also sounds really good on Bose SoundLink Mini Speaker vs headphones at night.
Why are there no directions?
by jpear on 2020/01/07 01:47
I just downloaded My Noise and clicked on a lullaby sound...which I like BUT when couldn’t find a way to stop it so i could listen to others! I had to power down iPhone to get rid of it! What’s the secret?? Update: I wish to correct my review above. It was “operator error”....I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. Now I love the app.
Love!
by LCLMomma1392 on 2019/12/27 02:15
Love it. Period.
Flawless. The best free white noise app.
by Mrsuperman171 on 2019/12/06 07:51
I love this app. I didn’t even know the joy of mixing my own noise machine. It helped me sleep during the holiday when I wasn’t home with my ambient bathroom fan noise. Life saver.
Wonderful white noise generator
by wubwub on 2019/12/02 02:30
Each generator has multiple sliders to affect how the noise sounds and you can also set it to vary the sliders over time so the noises feel more natural. In some noise generators you can hear when the track repeats, I’ve never heard any loops in this one. You can also layer sounds. My current fave is to have rain set with waves overlaid. Perfect for a good night’s sleep.
Simply the best
by DanVT on 2019/11/23 00:12
Frequent updates and sounds for everyone! I can put myself in the back of a early 20th bomber or inside a code breaker room while listening to my WW2 audiobook. The sound of snow and footsteps on a mountaintop as I read Into Thin Air. Perfection - just needs Chromecast support!
Highly recommend
by Army Tired on 2019/11/14 18:12
Love this app. I have recommended it to a few people after talking about stress and sleep issues. I do not use it a whole bunch but it is my go to when I’m looking to get some good hard rest or if I cannot sleep. It does so much and the variety is fantastic. I have donated in the past and it just gives you more when you do. I own a few sound generation apps and like I said this is my go to.
Needs an alarm
by 345673827 on 2019/11/11 13:44
The sounds are great. They work really well BUT no alarm and that creates a huge problem for me. You can’t get a good nights sleep if you are worried about not hearing your alarm.
Astonishing Sound Quality and Depth
by ThePresent.TODAY on 2019/11/06 11:21
Fun, refreshing and outstanding value for the investment. Thankuou!
Nice! BUT lowQ his
by mimimamomo on 2019/10/30 04:08
Good job, devs. Well designed, intuitive: I was able to figure out the basics very easily, only the info I need is presented and there are *just* the right amount of features placed in logical places. BUT [adding some caveats to my previous super positive review: 1. I started playing the noise through my studio monitors to try to get a nice full range and block out sound more comfortably. Turns out the audio quality of the white noise at least is pretty low. I realize white noise itself is artifact-y but the way you can tell is that the high end kind of hurts to listen to. It does not sound smooth like other white noise hi end I’ve heard. Maybe that particular setting isnt designed that way? 2. No pink noise gens! But. On with praising the design: the first thing I see is the first stuff I’d want to be able to do, then if I look closer I find out I can save the setting I just made, then if I look even closer I find out I can *mix* *multiple* soundscapes which I can separately modify. The visuals are cool but not distracting and are appropriate to their functions. On & on. I work in live audio so I love that this lets me personalize my noise! Has a nice number of bands (but I think the right amount to not confuse average user), and the ranges w/in each work pretty well for my needs. It’s the super cheap version of noise canceling headphones. Has saved my sleep and study life so many times already and I’ve only had it a few weeks! Will donate to this when I find a link to. Definitely worth it. Thanks y’all!
Thank you for making this app!
by minimalistgrl on 2019/10/22 16:04
High quality sounds. Very therapeutic.
It won’t play through my Sonos Speakers.
by King of Makai on 2019/10/17 16:48
I ADORE THIS APP. It has helped me through so much, work, sleeping, life, and when I just need a moment to detach. The only problem that I have is that I can’t get the app to play through my wireless speakers in my home. It used to work, but I don’t know what happened. I have Sonos speakers. Developers, please allow this app to connect a play through wireless speakers again. Thank you!
If there was a fire and you could only save one app on your phone....
by Qweruhgdhjjjkjdsgg on 2019/10/15 01:07
I would pick this one. The $10 package was so very very worth it. Not sure what makes the process creating the soundscapes such a cathartic thing but I cannot get enough. These generators are amazing for sleeping, for studying, for turning an urban walk into a tropical paradise, good “white noise that’s so much more than just white noise” when you want to read. Simply the best.
The website is better
by shorty squad member on 2019/10/13 23:59
I found the app through the website and downloaded it so I didn’t have to waste phone battery leaving the screen open on a website for hours, but apparently that’s better than using the app. The website gives you access to basically all of the sounds for free, while this app makes you pay for them. I am just a high school student with ADHD that just wants a nice way to focus without spending money for college. Could there at least be a feature where you can select maybe 10 of the sounds for free while after that others cost money? Is that too much to ask???
Best soundscape app
by Ploskd on 2019/10/13 15:23
this app is really neat. huge library of soundscapes from nature to creepy or trippy. You can customize each scape and you can set it to vary so that it doesn't just sound repetitive
Everything you need
by WithjusTapistol on 2019/10/08 05:37
This is by far the best app for generating white noise. Very customizable and you can even combine sounds. My favorite is the rain and the ocean at the same time. The best feature is that it has adjustable sliders you can use to change the sound too. You can even have it randomly move up and down so it never sounds the same. I don’t write reviews for apps, but I’ve used this app for several years now and am very satisfied.
Best sleep sounds app
by Spudvision on 2019/10/07 04:10
I’ve tried every sleep sounds app and this is the best by far. You can unlock everything for a reasonable price and customize sounds to the extreme. This app is a work of art and I regret all the time I spent buying audio tracks and using other apps. Get this dang thing already!
App spontaneously stopped working
by prashranger on 2019/10/06 12:39
This was a pretty nice app until one day it simply stopped working. I opened up the app and no amount of coaxing could get it to do anything. What happened?
Best back ground sound app
by Baaaaambaaaam on 2019/10/02 13:22
Hands down this is the best sound for back ground, concentration, meditation out. The fact you can customize and save your customizations is stellar. For a free app it surpasses all the paid ones. Hands down to the devs on this masterpiece !!!!!!
Amazing!
by PocketMouse12 on 2019/09/28 07:35
While I had many other apps for listening to both rain and music, none of them were quiet loud. Then I stumbled on this app, and thank goodness I did because it has been such an amazing help! I purchased the bundle for all of the sounds, which I recommend! They are good for helping with not only sleeping, but with panic attacks and sensory overload as well. The only thing I was a bit saddened by was that I couldn’t seem to find a sound for constant thunder and heavy rain, which I hope they add soon! With all their updates and new sounds this is a must have app for people who need noise to sleep to!
Best noises on the internet. Period
by Careylin on 2019/09/27 04:24
Trying to fall asleep but the tinnitus in your ears is too loud? Me too. Luckily, Stephane has you covered with the best sounds I’ve ever had the pleasure to fall asleep to. The variety and depth of sounds are incredible, and there’s so many to choose from. You won’t regret buying all the sounds.
Best app for studying/focus
by adesinacat on 2019/09/19 16:45
Having ADHD and Gen Anxiety, I always on the lookout for things to calm me down and help shut out the world around me when I need to focus. While I usually prefer my Spotify playlist, this has become my go to for a few reasons. Unlike many apps like it, this one has two big differences. One, you can tweak the sounds to fit your preferences. I can have a hard time with DEEP base or high treble. This allows me to lower those to a setting that doesn’t hurt but helps block. The BIG win for this app is that you can have it playing behind almost any other app. Haven’t found one yet where it is made to stop. So I can have this app playing while my text-to-voice app reads my textbooks to me while on the train with my noice cancelling headphones. I am finally able to do what I can only do on my laptop. I also like that you can set it to randomize so it can change a bit allowing it to not fully get ignored and in a way stop working. You can also combine sounds to make your perfect noice. I haven’t paid for the extra sounds yet but plan on it very soon.
Tranquility
by PaidGoodMoney on 2019/09/18 11:27
It’s an amazing app, I use it for meditating, studying, sleeping and generally to keep at peace. Y’all did a wonderful job!
I really like it
by Coolcatanddonkeyanddog on 2019/09/07 18:54
I really like it, but I’m struggling figuring out how to turn the darn thing off
Surprisingly Awesome App
by tigherj on 2019/08/15 01:20
If you're looking for a way to get your ios device to create a sound environment to drown out external noise or you just enjoy having the soft wooshing sounds of water in a stream or crashing ocean waves, this app truly comes through. I have had ear ringing for years and early on discovered the benefits of white noise. This sound generator has programmed sounds like ocean and rain and others but it also has equalizer type sliders for different audio frequency bands - very versatile. So far as I've seen there are no annoying adds added. I really hate those 🤔 I use this app mainly to mask out people talking and other disturbances in my office environment. Beyond masking the annoyance of tinnitus I discovered that white noise seems to make it easier to tune out those wakeful thoughts when trying to sleep. It's kinda hard to explain and I've rarely tried to before but the recent emergence of ASMR (google it) might help explain.
A gift
by gregg-alan bartell on 2019/07/31 21:14
Thank you.
Best Noise App
by LongTimeNeopian on 2019/07/31 04:18
This is the best white noise app I’ve ever used. I’ve been relying on it to sleep for years. The customization is amazing, the many different noise options are all great, and the lack of “repeat” in the sounds makes all the options the best sounds to be distraction free and calming.
Best noise machine
by WendySnap on 2019/07/22 19:55
The equalizer on this is fantastic for covering up specific noises. I have used it in many different situations to mask dogs barking or even trains going by. Being able t adjust the range and volume of the sound is helpful and brilliant. My only complaint is that I bought the full download package on my iPad but it doesn’t seem to transfer to my iPhone, where I need it the most. I pulled down the download page as was suggested in another review but it did not do anything.
Great service, decent app
by BleepBloopYourSongIsntPoop on 2019/07/18 03:01
I use the myNoise website for my dungeons and dragons campaigns, and it works wonders for atmosphere. However, I downloaded this app to try and use the same service on a more portable device. However, the account that I use on my computer seems to not be accessible for the app. I get that they’re urging people to buy noise generators, but the generators all come free with one donation on the website, so... I’m just confused and annoyed. If I’m missing something, please correct me
Fantastic white noise with random levels
by Torque Burning on 2019/07/12 20:11
The ability to make randomly shifting white noise is great. My only request would be to keep the levels animating after I shift the volume, sometimes it gets too quiet to hear over another app and I have to turn all the animations on again whenever that happens.
Love it!
by skwidney on 2019/07/06 03:05
I use it a lot for concentrating at work or for drowning out people at work. I also use for naps! I love the news sounds that keep coming out. Such a great app. Thank you!!
Like having your own composer to help you focus
by A. Non E. Mouse on 2019/07/04 12:14
I usually listen to movie soundtracks, as most don’t have vocals. Things like Max Richter, Brian Eno, Johann Johansson. Using this app and, say, Black Hole, I can very easily mix up something very similar. The sounds generated by MyNoise aren’t repetitive with no clicks and pops where other apps loop a sound over and over. I also use the Grey Noise generator to help block out environmental sounds. I use the app through Bose QC-35 headphones, and (rarely) AirPod 2s. This is fantastic for helping with my ADD!
I use this app every night!
by lythir on 2019/06/29 02:47
Through pregnancy, nursing insomnia, and when I desperately need a nap, this app helps me quiet my mind and sleep consistently. I don’t leave reviews often, so this is saying a lot!
Settings Absent - Can’t Customize
by Loathes Advertising on 2019/06/26 09:08
Extremely distracting useless “bars.” No clear controls or directions to eliminate. I couldn’t locate settings to set for only sounds.
Absolutely Incredible!
by App_Designer_5274 on 2019/06/22 04:38
Simply put, this is one of the greatest apps ever made. A very intuitive design and interface, fantastic accessibility features, and a great sound selection. Not having to worry about a time limit with each audio clip is a life-saver. I am definitely sharing this with friends. Great job!
Multi-Gen broken
by StmAppleSeed on 2019/06/19 17:17
This is normally a five star app but I made the mistake of upgrading (to version 2.7.2) and now the application crashes every time I try to create a multigen. Also, all my saved multigen favorites no longer play. Reinstalling does not help. No response from developer for 2 weeks so feel compelled to write this review to warn others not to upgrade.
Mac
by OBAwannabe2017 on 2019/06/11 16:15
It’s a good app. It’d be amazing if I could use it on my Mac
The most flexible and affordable
by More nerd girl on 2019/06/06 10:10
Have tried MANY white noise generators. THIS is the one I like most. The free defaults are nice. Buy all the sounds or just a few and $0.99 is worth the price for one sound unless more that 9 sounds are desired. Getting a lot of variety from three purchased sounds. Also, and this is a HUGE problem with OTHER white noise apps: the musical sounds are too repetitive. That has not been the case so far with myNoise. Too many other apps do not have previews before you buy: THIS WAS DOES! There are 10 ways to control the strength/volume of each “noise” plus presets. Sounds can be mixed within the app and can be played with OTHER apps. Takes a minute to figure out how to save NAMED favorites and mixes but that can be overlooked. Looking forward to some super zen moments. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Surprised at how much you get for free!
by LinkTiger on 2019/06/03 02:34
I had gotten used to the white noise my boyfriend uses to sleep, so when he was traveling, I downloaded this on a lark, expecting a no-frills basic mode with aggressive up-sells. I could not have been more wrong! This is a quality app with loads of settings, options, and features right out of the box! Sure, there are ways to pay, but they are discrete and tasteful; even if you never pony up a cent, you are getting an app of uncompromising quality and polish. Thank you, developers. Now, if you don’t mind, I’ll let these soothing starship engine sounds lull me to sleep at warp speed.
lifesaving
by 404accessdenied on 2019/05/31 22:16
easily the best money i’ve ever spent on an app
Phenomenal use of technology and sound
by Terrance Hall on 2019/05/30 13:03
I wish I had this app years ago. Props to the team who made this!
Great app
by TJ sjb on 2019/05/29 11:55
Tremendous variety of sounds. Be careful about purchasing a few sounds and then buying the whole package. Any purchases you make prior to purchasing all the sounds will not count toward the final cost. “All you can hear” costs $8.99. If you purchased 5 sounds prior to paying the $8.99, you’ll be paying almost $14.
A big help for both focusing and relaxing
by fred_gawilawitz on 2019/05/16 17:40
If you enjoy the website, having the app insures continual music. And you can get your favorite scenes and support the developer (who donates an insane amount of time to these) for just a buck each. Be sure to check out his other project Calmyleon.com. I would love to see it become another app. Thank you Dr. Pigeon!
Amazing app, fixed the no-download bug!
by The Winged Wombat on 2017/08/13 09:10
Edit: You can disregard the below review. The bug is now fixed for me even though it took a while and the app is 5 stars again. Thank you to the creators of myNoise for making the app. Hands-down best sound app for readers, writers, sounds for sleep, meditation...I could go on. Just wonderful, honestly! Not much more to add. If anyone else is having a similar issue, try refreshing the download page and letting the sound generators roll in one at a time until everything has loaded. (As said in the developer response to this review as well) It doesn't take very long at all and when they're loaded up you can download any of them without hassle. Old review: I used to love this app. I recently switched from an iPhone 5s to a 6s. I had previously purchased the 10 dollar package unlocking everything but suddenly I'm unable to download any generators. I've tried restoring my purchases multiple times, reinstalling the app, it's all useless. When I go to the download tab, none of the soundscapes are even available to download - they just don't appear anymore. Instead I'm left with the Tip Jar and a blank endless loading page. I don't have any use for this app until this is fixed.
It’s good, but wish there was a bit more variety for free
by proboning on 2019/01/12 18:00
I know it sounds selfish, but I wish there was a bit more to listen to for free, like distant thunderstorm and their more ethereal ones like Anamnesis (loved distant thunderstorm with Gregorian chants, and grey noise with Anamnesis is god tier). I discovered myNoise through their website and there’s such amazing variety, and I was so excited to find out there was an app so I could turn it on to help me fall asleep, but then I discovered none of the sounds I like are available, and I don’t particularly like any of the ones that are free. And unfortunately I don’t have $5 I can just spend on a bunch of sounds. A bit sad about that, I wish I could! Other than that I really love all the features on this app! The sliders are great (though not as advanced as they are on a browser, I noticed), and the fact you can combine sounds (which I wasn’t expecting) is so great, as well as the fact that you can set a timer so it’s not running all night draining your battery! I actually really love that feature a lot. Last night I managed to fall asleep to the temple bells and the white noise, and will try it again tonight! It’s an awesome idea for an app!
Ahhhhhmazing
by Secretdreamer on 2018/08/01 19:55
I'll never need to download another "relaxing sounds" app again. This one blows all the others away. I am amazed by it each and every night. I have a set of really nice headphones and I'm pretty picky when it comes to sound quality. I feel like I am actually "THERE" (wherever there might be, a Japanese garden, a steel mill, in a tent during a thunderstorm, a cathedral in the quiet moments before mass). I've never experienced another app quite like this. Spend the extra dollars on the unlimited access to the different downloads, Italy's for itself in no time at all. One of the coolest apps I've ever purchased. (Also to the creator the new "pilgrim" setting is divine, one of the prettiest things I've heard. I hope you are making a living off your skills because you are certainly talented and knowledgeable enough to be! And I LOVE the fact there is a soundscape dedicated to Oxygene. My dad used to put the record on his super nice stereo in the early 80s when I was a child and we would listen to it together, describing to each other what the music made us see. One of my first real memories of music listening.)

Amazing
by Egjftijfeegjasd on 2020/03/16 18:18
When I discovered this app a couple years ago I was just looking for something that played white noise, burbling water, or general nature sounds when I slept. But it blew away my expectations and offers more than I could have thought of on my own. Usability and customization is excellent. Variety and range of options incredible. The passion, experimentation, diverse tastes, and creativity of the app’s creator and his love of sound and audio comes through strongly. I increasingly explored new things and found both familiar and obscure chants, numerous variations on things like waves, rain, and running water with subtle but tangible differences I never would have thought I would care about, and a wealth of both natural and electronic / synthetic noises and soundscapes than I use when napping, meditating, or even sleeping that have a magical ability to tune out internal thoughts and self-dialogue, reset by brainwaves, and restore my focus and energy. While on pain meds and recovering from surgery with my leg immobilized, listening with earbuds dramatically improved my ability to focus away from the discomfort and sleep at night. Initially I just listened on my tablet and smart phone, but the audio quality is greatly enhanced with headphones, or decent earbuds if you’re not in a position to wear bulky headphones. It’s hard to imagine being without it now!
Incredible. One of the best apps I’ve ever purchased.
by Devil'sOtherOpinion on 2018/07/09 20:18
I’m not much of a ‘review’ writer. I appreciate those of you who do take the time to write them and bring my attention to great apps, so I thought I’d take a moment and try to do the same: This is a phenomenal app. It’s such a complex, deep dive into both entrainment and relaxing sounds that you’re really only able to appreciate its greatness by purchasing it. The options for customization are extensive and impressive; as a sound engineer myself, I’m blown away by the sophistication, depth and attention to detail. It’s always being updated. Couldn’t recommend more highly if you have attention deficit challenges (like me), love immersing yourself in other aural worlds. (The engineering of the binaural generators, by the way, is worth the price alone.) Be sure to use headphones (unless you’re using this for background ambience) and take time to explore.
A great app with a terrible bug
by WolvenStarXC on 2018/09/12 09:26
I so badly want to give this app 5 stars like it would ordinarily deserve, but unfortunately the ability to mix sounds into custom “multigen” experiences, which is one of its most unique and defining features, is hampered by the fact that you will eventually lose all of your work. If you quit the app (by swiping it up), return to it, and then go to the favorites section where all of your custom and multigen sounds are found, they will have disappeared. I figured a workaround was merely to keep the app open in the background at all times. However, today I discovered that the app had frozen and rebooted automatically. This wouldn’t be much of a problem ordinarily, but considering it resulted in all of my multigens being wiped again, it’s more than just a slight inconvenience. I hope the developers can fix this issue because I’d love to purchase the premium package to access every sound. I will be holding off until I can actually save my crafted multigens.
Nice. Unique. Hard work that will pay off.
by GadgetGuruGal on 2019/02/19 13:25
I just it when I find apps that don’t just LOOK polished and professional (though many don’t anyway), but actually perform great as well. Nothing is perfect when released of course.... beta testers are usually the first people who use the app. What makes the difference is if the developer cares about their product enough to respond to (helpful) feedback, correct the bugs, and update appropriately when there are IOS changes, etc. I also think it’s classy as hell that she’s not even charging for this yet (only suggesting options for those who would like to help with this expensive project). Many other developers want you to pay a monthly subscription for pieces of half-put-together, never-updated crap now. She’s still working hard to make it perfect. That works for me.
Stellar app
by Sllbt on 2020/05/13 13:06
I have struggled with insomnia most of my life, and nothing has ever helped me as much as this app has. I can turn on one of my favorites about a half hour before I try to sleep and by then I can go right out. For me, the water and ocean sounds are too picks; the ferry ride, the peninsula, and pebble beach are three I love already, and I am finding new ways to love all the rest too. Being able to fine tune the sounds makes all the difference; I’ve always been frustrated in the past by liking most of a ‘background’ sound, but there always seemed to be a factor mixed in for me that ruined it. Not now! The variety of recordings (and incredible clean quality) make this an app worth every penny. If you’re someone who could benefit from calming sounds for any reason, this is the app for you.
Thank you for this app!
by VVI-IAT'S I-IER FACE on 2020/04/14 07:54
I’ve been struggling with falling asleep, but thanks to this app, it’s so much easier to sleep now! I love to draw, and when I do, I often notice it’s too quiet. I’ll usually play music to fill the silence. However, that doesn’t help me sleep and I usually have trouble finding just the right song to play to fit with the feel of what I’m drawing. And also, $10 for all the sounds?! That’s so AWESOME! There’s a sound for everything and anything! I’m listening to sounds as I’m writing (or, um, typing) this! Again, thank you so much for this wonderful app and to those thinking about getting this app, it’s so worth every penny! There are countless amounts of sounds and many people making new sounds every day (or so) and I would totally recommend it! n^ v ^n
One of the best apps I've seen in a long time
by littlegreekalexandra on 2017/07/26 08:24
I have a long history of insomnia that recently has reared its ugly head. A friend recommended the webpage and I fell in love instantly. I've already told everyone I know. From the calibration adjustment with hearing loss so you can hear the sound the way it is intended, to the authentic sounds recorded ON LOCATION, I just had to have this app. It is even better than I anticipated. It has a timer AND an alarm! Customizable calibration for each device you listen to it on! I listen to it all the time now. While I donate plasma, while I drive, through my Alexa on Bluetooth, while I sleep... $10 for a ton of customizable sounds is well worth the money. And certainly cheaper than a prescription for sleep medication. It's worked!
Simply the best noise generator out there!!
by frannyval on 2018/04/07 00:30
I have been using MyNoise online for years now and am SO happy there is an app too! I love the endless possibilities available - especially when you listen to multiple generators at once. The sounds are so clear and detailed - the quality is just so impressive. And I’m obsessed with the calibrator and animation options, it helps me make the noises so personal to my mood. Basically, the person who created this is hands down amazing and a genius in my book! Thank you for being passionate about sounds and noises, and for producing such amazing work! If I could give one suggestion - the online website has volume buttons for the calibrator, so you can turn up your set calibration all at once. I think it would be helpful to have something similar on the app. My headphones can only go so loud, so it would be awesome to be able to turn up the calibrator without moving each individual frequency/sound. Thank you again for making this app & website! It’s amazing! I highly suggest everyone donate online and purchase all the sounds in the app so that this amazing work can continue and more sounds can be added 😊
Great app!
by locklyle on 2020/05/11 22:24
Ok, so I don’t usually write reviews, but this app is so good it’s worth it. I have had it for about 10 minutes and I’m already in love. It’s super customizable, so if you don’t like the default settings for one particular sound, you can completely change it. You can customize it for yourself, or you can choose from a long list of presets. I have not yet explored all the features, but from what I can tell, this app is totally worth it. Two suggestions: Maybe have a little tutorial in the beginning? I mean, it’s not super hard to figure out on your own, but it would be nice to know about all the features up front. The second thing: I wish that the app had all the same great sounds as the website! Other than that, it’s an amazing app and I totally recommend it.
One of a Kind
by Violet Paget on 2020/02/13 06:00
No other app I’ve found allows you to select a kind of noise, like rain or a colour noise, and then recalibrate or change the frequencies. I’ve been able to custom-make the perfect sounds for my sleep with this app, cancelling out all of the irritating sounds of apartment living. I really can’t do without it now! The only thing is that sometimes I return to the app to find that all of my saved custom sounds have been erased. I am still rating at 5 stars because this app is SO useful. unique, and flexible, and I don’t have that many saved sounds, but I can imagine that this is a bit of an issue for people who have created a whole library of very specific sounds.
Great variety and adjustability
by random wanderer on 2018/01/26 22:59
I've been quite pleasantly surprised with the wide variety of sounds available within this app. Even more, the ability to adjust various components of each sound is fantastic -- for example, within the Japanese Garden I can turn up the Waterfall, which I like to hear, and turn to nothing the Cicadas, which I'd rather not hear. This way each sound option permits customization to your own preferences. It's also possible to store your settings for future use, which is very handy. I enjoyed so many of the sounds available that I purchased the entire generators bundle, and I don't regret the purchase in the slightest.
Sensory overloaded? The world getting to you??
by caseymiche on 2018/09/23 05:11
This app is the single greatest app ever in existence. I’m a sensory-overloaded artist who’s an orange in a world filled of apples....and all the world is full of hate and blips and beeps and rings and flashing signs and ticks and tv’s and thumping cars and I’ve gone mad in the process of trying to find peace in this world. MyNoise has given me what I’ve needed. You get free stuff, but paying the $9 for the unlimited sound programs is well worth it. If you’re anything like me....overloaded in a loud world that you don’t feel you belong in, try this app to help you escape. Trust me. It’s worth it. If I had a lot of money....I’d give so much more money to these soul-sensitive creators.
Used for years, love it
by connieRiddle on 2017/10/09 10:19
I don't usually leave reviews, especially for apps. I feel that this is mostly b/c of the fact that they don't usually feel personal. MyNoise started out being one of the few noise generators with tonal control and has only gotten better with every update. The creators have really made this a usable and specific to the user. It is extremely customizable to the user so that you can have a personal setting that makes sense for you, and the creators have made it to accommodate someone like me, which I love. It has helped a ton with my learning disabilities and mental stuff. If I could leave more that five stars I would.
Can’t eliminate the “drip” in rain sounds
by Dimmiedisaster on 2018/03/16 03:59
All the tones in “rain sounds” include burbling or dripping noises that over whelm the white noise. Even the more bass sounds (except sub bass which is thunder). I don’t strongly associate rain with dripping or burbling. All the rain tones sound like rain AND a fountain. Maybe that’s what rain sounds like in more rural areas, I wouldn’t know, but but in the city you wouldn’t experience a dripping sound unless your gutter is broken or your roof is leaking, dripping = stress. It wouldn’t be much of a problem except every single tone except sub bass has dripping sounds seems like something as customizable as this would let you customize the dripping out. Its not subtle background dripping either. Each tone has a drip in line with that tone and you can’t increase the white noise tone without increasing the drip.
Wide range of options and personalization
by SeriousTurtle on 2019/01/31 20:22
MyNoise offers a wide range of quality looping sounds to mix within pre-made soundboards and even allows you to create custom mixes between 2 or more soundboards. Pros: can set a timer/alarm so music stops after a while or at an exact time, perfect for bedtime use. Sounds can be animated so that the mix is constantly changing, great for immersion. Con: making custom mixes is addictive and I want a way to easily share my own and browse those created by other users. So far, all I have found is a subreddit which links to the MyNoise website, but nothing to import directly into the app.
Actually Cancels Sound!
by amberwolf2 on 2018/09/20 14:21
This is this first app I have found that cancels outside noise without the need to turn your headphones up incredibly loud! I also like how when you click the "about" section for each sound, it tells you what the sound is good for (relaxation, noise canceling, ect.), all sounds included in the soundscape, and the purpose of each soundscape! There are even soundscapes for tabletop and card gamers, destination soundscapes, and more neutral things like tones and white noise! Also! There are 10 sliders per soundscape. Hate that one noise in the background? Turn it completely off without affecting the other sounds! The recordings are quite long. You don't hear the same bird song for a long time, and if you turn on "animate" you most likely won't notice the repeat. Because animate changes the volume of all sliders randomly, making all 10 sounds at different noise levels all the time. This is has been the only effective sound app I have found, and I absolutely love it!
Tranquility
by Gina Hart on 2017/07/22 20:16
To call this "noise" is an unfortunate misnomer. The tranquility imparted by this app is my salvation at work (or any time I want to feel more peaceful). The incredible array of sounds and the versatility in how they can be played means that you will never have to hear the same mix twice (unless you want to). As if that weren't enough, you can precisely calibrate the app to your personal hearing, and that's no gimmick. The difference after calibration is a genuinely noticeable improvement. I like the app so much that I bought the full app AND donated to the web site. I buy very, very few apps. This one is absolutely worth every penny.
Extraordinary App
by Rkj7738 on 2020/04/21 16:49
This app does things with sounds I didn’t even know were possible on an iPhone. Not only can you mix up to 5 different tones/sounds at once, you can use an equalizer board to pick which portions to accentuate. Furthermore , you can then even overlay that mix you created with music or sounds from another app, such as Sirius or your music library. So, if you wanted to create a mix of waves crashing with jungle bird sounds with monks chanting, and then overlay that mix with a Steely Dan song, yep you can do that. This, you will have endless creative music possibilities with this. Software makers like this deserve our highest support. Their talent is exceptional.
Surprised at how much you get for free!
by LinkTiger on 2019/06/03 02:34
I had gotten used to the white noise my boyfriend uses to sleep, so when he was traveling, I downloaded this on a lark, expecting a no-frills basic mode with aggressive up-sells. I could not have been more wrong! This is a quality app with loads of settings, options, and features right out of the box! Sure, there are ways to pay, but they are discrete and tasteful; even if you never pony up a cent, you are getting an app of uncompromising quality and polish. Thank you, developers. Now, if you don’t mind, I’ll let these soothing starship engine sounds lull me to sleep at warp speed.
Best sound program in the App Store
by Copelco66 on 2018/02/22 23:25
I Purchased the full version not because I needed every sound but because I felt the developer deserved payment for a great program like this. It’s too bad other apps in the iTunes Store don’t provide this kind of value. I have tinnitus and have found several settings that seemed to help. My wife also enjoys many of the other options as background noise because she is a writer and it helps her set the mood in her mind as she writes. Great app download and purchase. There was a problem but the developer responded and we resolved the issue quickly. Great app, BUY IT!
I graduated college because of this app
by Love7654321 on 2020/02/13 23:35
I could not have asked for a better productivity-inducing app. It flawlessly blocks out noise from inconsiderate roommates and yapping co-workers. It allowed me to focus on my work in some of the most annoying conditions. I do think that the website offers a lot more sounds, such as the sailboat which is my favorite. It also helps me with my anxiety when I just need to calm down without all of the stimuli around me. It’s perfect for those craving to slow down the madness around them and those yearning to create their own little worlds. :)
I love drowning! Out sound! And also in water!
by 2qutelatrice on 2017/07/25 08:44
I have this horrible problem with not being able to sleep if I can hear someone breathing and this app completely drowns out everything, AND it doesn't keep me up like music does bc there's not much for my brain to focus on. It's also nice to just listen to the sounds when I'm walking to class. I like doing that because no one around me knows I'm not listening to Country Musics Top 40, but actually the sound of sub base water noises and pretending I'm chilling at the bottom of the sea next to a frog on a log in a hole in the bottom of the sea.
This really helps
by ejsaunier on 2018/09/07 17:55
I struggle with manic depression and anxiety. It’s a daily struggle. I can tell you that reading the Bible and this app is the only tangible help I’ve managed to stumble upon. These noises are calming and good for meditation, which is the best medication. The actual medication would make me drowsy, but this gets me moving and makes me remember to love life. Reading my bible and listening to these sounds have helped so much; I’ve seen improvement in my mental health in a matter of days. Thank you developers and other contributors, this app has changed my life. And I thank God for you! You are such a blessing!
This is the only noise/sound/music therapy app you need
by Butchadd on 2018/02/19 15:07
Phenomenal, sound science, compassionately and intuitively designed, highly adjustable to fit every individuals hearing abilities preferences and audio-therapeutic needs. I find it never gets old trying out all the sounds, mixing them, layering them, possibilities are endless... I loved my white noise pro app but this BLOWS IT OUT OF THE WATER!! I almost forget to take my Wellbutrin (I feel that good! But never go off antidepressants without medical supervision 😉 however I’m off of my temazepam, a heavy sleeping pill/ narcotic sedative, thanks to this wonderful app!! Never felt better!
Incredible app
by Joflo916 on 2018/05/08 16:48
I don’t write many review but as I download this app on my next new phone for the third time, I figure they deserve it. The sounds are incredible. The scenes I can set depending on my mood. Above and beyond any other I’ve tried. I paid for full access and I’ve never regretted it. Thank you devs!! Ps. Devs - As I was writing this review I was also going to add the suggestion to let me listen to other music while using your sounds, but I stopped myself to make sure it wasn’t actually a feature I’d missed. Turns out it’s there and now I’m DOUBLY stoked to try new combos!!! THANKYOU
Stunningly good!
by Sound-A-Plenty on 2019/02/15 10:31
Imagine you have a world class recording studio in your hand. Tracks and tracks of prerecorded stereo sounds of, well, almost anything you can think of. And you can mix, layer, and customize 50 of those tracks at once (5 sets of 10). Yes, 50. Then tap “Animate” and the whole shindig starts mixing itself in random and delightful ways - oh dear! Sounds great, right (pun intended)? Now, imagine that you can leave it running in the background while you motor around the rest of your online (or offline) world. There it is then. I’m an audiologist and recording engineer. I use the app at work to recreate challenging listening environments when working with patients with hearing loss. I also use the provided high frequency noise bands for tinnitus testing and management. All with great results. If hearing and sound is your thing, you need this app. It’s just fun. And useful. And well designed and executed. Kudos!
A monumental app
by Borisattva on 2017/10/20 16:02
If all sound generation apps were mountains, myNoise would be mt. Everest. It is simply a cut above the rest. It offers thousands upon thousands of combinations of sounds, all of them engineered to a high degree of perfection. You can mix and match and customize so the sounds feel just right. Customizability is off the charts. You can even blend it with audio from other apps. I was blown away by the diversity and sheer quality of the sounds and keep discovering new ones. I use it daily and it has quickly become my favorite app.
Thrilling
by Jayymf on 2018/04/04 16:59
MyNoise delivers an unlimited array of noise combinations for every environment. No matter your mood you are sure to find a thrilling sound that will white wash the background and keep you focused on any task. I’ve been using the app for a month and continue to find sounds that keep me going. The calibrations to block the background help with my early onset hearing loss. The one MAJOR drawback is the apps ignoring of IOS’ headphone music protocols. Pause your Airbuds and MyNoise keeps playing. Remove your Airbud and MyNoise keeps playing. This is incredibly frustrating. Resolve this and I will change my review to 6 stars.
Cannot open app anymore/after new update every is working again
by TiyAmonet on 2020/04/05 22:13
I just got the latest update, and the app closes when I try to open it now. I’ve used the years to help soothe my sleeping patterns. Very disappointing! After another app update, it appears that everything is back to working the way it always has! Thank you so much for the quick response. I have enjoyed this app for years for helping me sleep. I truly enjoy the ability to layer tracks. Thanks again!
Love it
by Lte0 on 2018/09/20 02:31
This is just by far the best sound app I've ever gotten. I use it for a myriad of reasons. I do wish that the different categories were separated by headings or something that would make it easier to navigate with voiceover. And the multi gen is somewhat accessible with voiceover but it's extremely finicky. I'm giving this app five stars because it does not detract from my overall experience, I just want to give my honest feedback. Also, I wonder if it’s possible to use the magic generators with the app.
Fantastic!
by Rodscha on 2019/02/16 21:06
I really, really love this app! I’m so glad I found it. I use it every day. The quality of the recordings are outstanding and the ability to adjust the noises (and the composition of the noise itself!) is absolutely fantastic!! It’s not just a recording of a sound but rather multiple channels of sounds that compose a noise. You can tune this exactly to your liking. Amazing. Just bought myself a new pair of speakers because of this :-). I own a handful of other noise apps and nothing comes even close. Get it.
My favorite. Now crashes on every launch
by Brandopants1 on 2019/02/01 11:14
Not sure what broke but I got my install into a corrupt state and now I can't launch it. I deleted it and restored it from the store and on launch, when prompted to restore old purchases, it just crashes again. Shame. Also would love to see two new generators sorely missing: 1) a simple box fan: this is my infant sons favorite sound. 2) distant ocean: the current ocean sound has the close up sound of the waves receding on the sand. I miss the sound of the surf from the window a few hundred yards away..not on the beach. Rolling off the high end gets close but it isn't the same.
Best background noise app ever
by Some random nerd from wj on 2018/01/28 15:33
So many amazing sounds for focus and relaxation and just about anything you can think of The only app I have found so far with a good railroads sound (without the whistles) Definitely worth buying the all you can hear package; if you have one or two specific sounds you want maybe buy them individually but if you want to play around with it and see what’s there definitely get the whole thing it’s literally just $10 for over 150 sounds so far
Doesn’t have a whole lot for free
by Andrew1243 on 2018/09/12 12:10
But the things you do have are incredible! I love that you provide the option to mix sound with other apps. Every sound app should have that! But I do have a glitch. Every time I compose a favorite sound, when I make a second one, it disappears always leaving the first one only. This can be quite a nuisance, as I can never compose more than one favorite at a time. If you fix this that would be extraordinary! I will keep 5 stars for support
Best noise machine
by WendySnap on 2019/07/22 19:55
The equalizer on this is fantastic for covering up specific noises. I have used it in many different situations to mask dogs barking or even trains going by. Being able t adjust the range and volume of the sound is helpful and brilliant. My only complaint is that I bought the full download package on my iPad but it doesn’t seem to transfer to my iPhone, where I need it the most. I pulled down the download page as was suggested in another review but it did not do anything.
Love it but am disappointed...
by j.r.j. on 2019/04/14 15:35
Recently after an update, the release notes claimed you can sync your favorites via iCloud. As someone who went all in and purchased all noises, I’m disappointed that the syncing does not work. I sent feedback to the dev from within the app about it and never heard back. It’s a great app otherwise which I use on several devices but the syncing “bug” and sending feedback and never getting a response is enough for me to drop what would have been five stars to only a three. By the way, favorites have always been buggy even on the newest devices.
THANK YOU!
by DCHFoundations on 2018/05/14 22:18
Thanks for helping me get lost in a cacophony of binaural beats, ocean waves, and Yakutian voices! Truly a relaxing, motivating, and easy way to drown out my surroundings while working, reading, or winding down at the end of the day. Love the Animate function and all the free sounds to make my own personal and ever-morphing sound bubble. Wish list: When creating favorite multigens, would love to have the sound levels and animations saved as well, instead of having to tweak and adjust every time I call it back up.
A different noisemaker
by Stee-rider on 2020/02/19 18:14
This app pays a lot of attention to detail, and does interesting things such as varying the equalization as it plays, so even the same looped sound isn’t quite the same as it was previously. Excellent sound choices, including a nice “cafe” which is great for blocking voices in a noisy office. A couple issues. First off, the equalizer has a control where I use a two-finger drag to change all sliders together. Unfortunately this only works in one direction... up. Once I’ve gone up I can’t get it to go down again, except by switching to a different sound, then back to the one I’m working on. The second issue is that the sound catalog isn’t well organized. It’s not easy to find things. The search is okay, but overall I mainly find new things on the web site, or simply by scrolling and seeing what I find randomly. Good app overall.
The website is better
by shorty squad member on 2019/10/13 23:59
I found the app through the website and downloaded it so I didn’t have to waste phone battery leaving the screen open on a website for hours, but apparently that’s better than using the app. The website gives you access to basically all of the sounds for free, while this app makes you pay for them. I am just a high school student with ADHD that just wants a nice way to focus without spending money for college. Could there at least be a feature where you can select maybe 10 of the sounds for free while after that others cost money? Is that too much to ask???
My anchor
by Klevine4 on 2020/01/23 08:48
This app is my anchor. No exaggeration, this app has greatly improved my life. I have sensory issues and this keeps me level and calm. It keeps me sane when traveling through busy airports and train stations. At work in our open office. At home with my weird cat talking too much. When I get overstimulated or anxious my rain preset calms me like nothing else. It brings me back to center. When I have trouble sleeping, I listen to the same preset and it calms my brain enough to turn off. I like that I was able to take the rain noise and tweak it. Their preset scenes were a great starting point. So I started “on the porch,” dropped the treble a bit to reduce stimulation and increased the bass to add more calm. It’s perfectly tailored to the needs of my ears and brain. Thank you so much to the team that made this. On a daily basis you improve my life.
Like having your own composer to help you focus
by A. Non E. Mouse on 2019/07/04 12:14
I usually listen to movie soundtracks, as most don’t have vocals. Things like Max Richter, Brian Eno, Johann Johansson. Using this app and, say, Black Hole, I can very easily mix up something very similar. The sounds generated by MyNoise aren’t repetitive with no clicks and pops where other apps loop a sound over and over. I also use the Grey Noise generator to help block out environmental sounds. I use the app through Bose QC-35 headphones, and (rarely) AirPod 2s. This is fantastic for helping with my ADD!
Everything you need
by WithjusTapistol on 2019/10/08 05:37
This is by far the best app for generating white noise. Very customizable and you can even combine sounds. My favorite is the rain and the ocean at the same time. The best feature is that it has adjustable sliders you can use to change the sound too. You can even have it randomly move up and down so it never sounds the same. I don’t write reviews for apps, but I’ve used this app for several years now and am very satisfied.
The most flexible and affordable
by More nerd girl on 2019/06/06 10:10
Have tried MANY white noise generators. THIS is the one I like most. The free defaults are nice. Buy all the sounds or just a few and $0.99 is worth the price for one sound unless more that 9 sounds are desired. Getting a lot of variety from three purchased sounds. Also, and this is a HUGE problem with OTHER white noise apps: the musical sounds are too repetitive. That has not been the case so far with myNoise. Too many other apps do not have previews before you buy: THIS WAS DOES! There are 10 ways to control the strength/volume of each “noise” plus presets. Sounds can be mixed within the app and can be played with OTHER apps. Takes a minute to figure out how to save NAMED favorites and mixes but that can be overlooked. Looking forward to some super zen moments. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
I use it everyday, at work and for sleep
by Megyn Cora on 2018/01/10 07:20
No other app lets me dial in so exactly the mix of sound I need for sleep, for the train, to cover chatter at the office, and so forth. The sounds are really good and to be able to mix them together is great — to be able to mix them with other apps is brilliant! I have used many apps (white noise, brainwave, etc.) but I always come back to this one for the infinite customization possible. I was happy to pay for the whole bundle.
Perfect for tinnitus masking
by Treesntrees on 2020/03/26 00:07
I’ve used this app for years—almost an infinite variety of sounds with the way you can control the equalizer sliders. And you can mix sounds, so I layer tinnitus masking white noises with different natural soundscapes to prevent getting sick of the same sound all the time. It’s extremely high quality sound too—this app is a fundamental part of my life honestly, I couldn’t sleep without it. Highly recommended if you have tinnitus.

Description
‣ "Turns the creation of ambient noise into an art form." - Apple, App of the Day ‣ "A better way to block distracting conversations when you work in an open-plan office or cubicle." - Wall Street Journal ‣ "Of all the ambient noise apps I’ve tried, myNoise® is the best. It never repeats, it has top-notch sounds, and it is just plain fun to use." - Cult Of Mac. ‣ "We've covered many online noise generators in the past, but myNoise® is different: it calibrates background noise based on your hearing range and listening devices." - Lifehacker. myNoise® is free, with White Noise, Rain Noise, Ocean Noise, Binaural Beats, Spring Walk, Temple Bells, Tibetan Choir and warp speed, the ultimate white noise machine for Sci-Fi fans. The idea behind a noise machine, 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. 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 myNoise®! Compared to conventional noise blocking machines, myNoise® generators can be shaped to the frequency characteristics of the audible nuisance that disturbs you, and therefore achieve a better camouflage, or - in other words - a greater masking efficiency at quieter levels. myNoise® will cover background noises whether you're trying to work, study, relax, or sleep. Listening to our sound generators in a quiet environment makes sense too, and is even recommended to enjoy their optimal sound quality. Let them become your best friend when it comes to soothing babies at bedtime, or during your meditation and relaxation sessions. Some of our noises are truly special: our so-called calibrated noise generators cover the entire audible frequency range, from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, over 10 color-coded octaves. Thanks to our unique calibration procedure, each calibrated generator can be made spectrally flat to your ears. As we get older, we all suffer from age-related hearing loss involving the higher tones. During the calibration procedure, we are able to measure your personal hearing levels, and adapt our calibrated noises - such as the rain noise - accordingly. You'll be surprised to hear frequencies you thought were lost forever! Calibrated noise generators also compensate for your audio equipment and listening environment deficiencies, including the presence of background noise and its nature. We regularly add new generators that you can find in the Download tab. Check them out, some of them are free to download. If you are a noise enthusiast, purchasing the "All You Can Hear" package guarantees that you will get unlimited access to all generators, including future ones. There are more than 150 generators available for download today, including 40+ calibrated ones. Enjoy! Terms of use: these sound generators are provided for personal/private use only. myNoise® audio stems are subject to copyright and shall not be used in any other context without permission.

SAME as the title!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Perfect
by uritaki on 2020/05/19 05:59
I use this app almost every day at work - as a spa business owner this is pretty much perfect for every client. I can make individual ambient combos for each person and with the ability to adjust the noise variations it never feels repetitive or annoying. It’s also perfect for group DnD chats for that extra bit of immersion! Love it 💕
Stellar app
by Sllbt on 2020/05/13 13:06
I have struggled with insomnia most of my life, and nothing has ever helped me as much as this app has. I can turn on one of my favorites about a half hour before I try to sleep and by then I can go right out. For me, the water and ocean sounds are too picks; the ferry ride, the peninsula, and pebble beach are three I love already, and I am finding new ways to love all the rest too. Being able to fine tune the sounds makes all the difference; I’ve always been frustrated in the past by liking most of a ‘background’ sound, but there always seemed to be a factor mixed in for me that ruined it. Not now! The variety of recordings (and incredible clean quality) make this an app worth every penny. If you’re someone who could benefit from calming sounds for any reason, this is the app for you.
Great app!
by locklyle on 2020/05/11 22:24
Ok, so I don’t usually write reviews, but this app is so good it’s worth it. I have had it for about 10 minutes and I’m already in love. It’s super customizable, so if you don’t like the default settings for one particular sound, you can completely change it. You can customize it for yourself, or you can choose from a long list of presets. I have not yet explored all the features, but from what I can tell, this app is totally worth it. Two suggestions: Maybe have a little tutorial in the beginning? I mean, it’s not super hard to figure out on your own, but it would be nice to know about all the features up front. The second thing: I wish that the app had all the same great sounds as the website! Other than that, it’s an amazing app and I totally recommend it.
My daily unwind
by Retired-Coastie on 2020/05/10 22:39
I didn’t like white noise at first. Now it is heard daily at our house to keep grands on schedule, the dog from barking, and allow our nerves time to relax.
A godsend
by Kasiered on 2020/05/01 19:25
I recommend this to friends, family, and coworkers. The app and it’s site provide endless soundscape options. Multiple treble/bass mixture options helped me a great deal with focus and anxiety. And I love that you can pay the flat charge for all downloads, plus it’s not laden with ads. Thank you for not making this subscription-based!
Very nice noise generator

Very nice noise generator
The Best
by Bbhallbb on 2020/05/01 02:44
I stumbled upon the MyNoise website about a year and a half ago when searching for ways to block my very loud office mates. Since then I’ve downloaded the app and recommended it to literally anyone who will listen to me! I love the degree of customization that can be achieved with this app!
❤️
by Avery1209 on 2020/04/30 04:37
This is amazing. I love that you can customize your sounds, and make your own! The main thing that makes it 5 stars it the fact that it plays even if your not on the app! I think that is the best feature.
Great for studying
by AudioMick on 2020/04/30 03:12
I use this all the time while studying, it’s great for blocking out noise in rooms, or even at home. I’m pretty easily distracted, and this helps a lot.
432 hz etc?
by AppleOclock on 2020/04/29 15:49
any chance you can allow these to be heard in 432hz, 693, & other meditative ranges? thank you.
White Noise
by Ilovehorses08 on 2020/04/24 17:48
This was a great app! I was able to create and customize my own white noise sound to help me relax and be peaceful.
Amazing sound quality!
by Tribalpilot on 2020/04/22 12:26
I don’t often write reviews, but this app continues to amaze me at the quality of sounds it provides! If your looking for a great white noise app, this app is the best one out there in terms of quality of deep rich sound.
Extraordinary App

This app does things with sounds I didn’t even know were possible on an iPhone. Not only can you mix up to 5 different tones/sounds at once, you can use an equalizer board to pick which portions to accentuate. Furthermore , you can then even overlay that mix you created with music or sounds from another app, such as Sirius or your music library.

This, you will have endless creative music possibilities with this. Software makers like this deserve our highest support. Their talent is exceptional.
Incredible, versatile noise generator
by ishouldbeking on 2020/04/18 19:03
This app is so much more than a white noise generator—it contains multitudes, literally. Rain sounds, ocean waves, natural sounds and unnatural ones, soothing tones for meditation and the ability to create infinite combinations of paired sounds, this is one of the best apps I’ve ever used. Whether I’m trying to sleep, or meditate, or read, or write, there’s something here that works. Buy the $10 option and get every sound - it’s absolutely worth it.
Most used program
by Swimmer-Bear on 2020/04/16 05:09
Currently this my most used program. I got it a little over a year ago when my favorite old program left with IOS 12. It is used nightly so I can sleep as I suffer from tinnitus Thanks for a great program. My only regret is that I wish it had pink noise due to my tinnitus
Sleepphones and menus don't work
by alayambo on 2020/04/15 23:58
my bluetooth Sleepphones don't work with the app (they work with Spotify) and the preset menus are blank 99% of the time edit: and i can't get the two finger swipe to work (i might just be awkward)
Amazing app!
by stas_key on 2020/04/15 07:02
But... when sharing on presets, the application crashes!
UI Bugs
by DrillionaireSM on 2020/04/15 06:39
Unfortunately the UI is partially invisible. Can’t view presets or Set an alarm or timer. Before the UI broke this app was extremely handy and served me very well.
Thank you for this app!
by VVI-IAT'S I-IER FACE on 2020/04/14 07:54
I’ve been struggling with falling asleep, but thanks to this app, it’s so much easier to sleep now! I love to draw, and when I do, I often notice it’s too quiet. I’ll usually play music to fill the silence. However, that doesn’t help me sleep and I usually have trouble finding just the right song to play to fit with the feel of what I’m drawing. And also, $10 for all the sounds?! That’s so AWESOME! There’s a sound for everything and anything! I’m listening to sounds as I’m writing (or, um, typing) this! Again, thank you so much for this wonderful app and to those thinking about getting this app, it’s so worth every penny! There are countless amounts of sounds and many people making new sounds every day (or so) and I would totally recommend it! n^ v ^n
Crashes, and where’s the coffee shop?
by Wishew on 2020/04/13 20:47
Just got this app today. When I go to try it, the app crashes. Plus, the whole reason I got it was because of Apple’s promotion of this app saying that it has a coffee shop background noise option. But I don’t see it on there! Did a “coffee” search... nuthin’. 💩
Doubtful
by wyldbrnch on 2020/04/13 14:29
I’ve tried the app and liked it enough to attempt to purchase the complete bundle for $9.99. But the in-app purchases won’t work. I’ve restarted the app and deleted and reinstalled the app. Nothing works. If there’s problems with a in-app purchase I wonder what other issues will pop up. I’m doubtful I will continue to use the app.
A great app.
by Robacarp on 2020/04/10 03:44
Great soundscapes, and the ability to combine them is fantastic.
Love it, but can’t buy it
by Arick Conley on 2020/04/08 16:09
I love this app. I’ve purchased access on the web to use while at the office, but I can’t buy the all-access in-app purchase. The button for $9.99 is unclickable for some reason.
In or out?
by ericshmerick on 2020/04/05 23:17
Edit: to clarify some of the below, I also use Android and this app is a dumpster fire over there. iOS is better, but has a long way to go. Like the website a lot but let’s be honest, society doesn’t want to use a browser for anything on a phone. People demand an app to tell them to drink water, etc. it’s ridiculous but happens to be reality. This app is lacking and I understand why. Apps are very difficult. They break when the website is changed and the app isn’t instantly updated. Apps present a significant challenge in mimicking website features, particularly with a site like myNoise (publicly shared eq configurations, all of it). I agree with the myNoise owner who basically says don’t buy the app and just use the website. The aggravation is the app is costly and no doubt costs a fortune to maintain and build upon., but remains for sale. Then the developer puts some snark in the new release notes saying “apparently people want to use the app?” indicating their resentment for bad reviews or people wanting feature parity with the website. My armchair consumer opinion is to just shelve the app and don’t bother OR aggressively produce a product that addresses paying customer’s requests without eye rolls. Regardless, I use the app and it’s good enough, but end up using the website most of the time anyhow. If it was a superb app, I’d pay monthly, which I absolutely detest (revenue drips) or pay double what it is now. Are you in or out, devs? If not, just pull it from the App Store.
Cannot open app anymore/after new update every is working again
by TiyAmonet on 2020/04/05 22:13
I just got the latest update, and the app closes when I try to open it now. I’ve used the years to help soothe my sleeping patterns. Very disappointing! After another app update, it appears that everything is back to working the way it always has! Thank you so much for the quick response. I have enjoyed this app for years for helping me sleep. I truly enjoy the ability to layer tracks. Thanks again!
Crash issue fixed (updated review)
by peterlu234 on 2020/04/05 21:56
I have a 6s and it crashes now. Have been using this app for over a year with no issues until today. Update: the developers quickly addressed this issue. Thanks!
Version 2.7.4 Does Not Work
by Ian the Energy Man on 2020/04/05 19:59
The update that was pushed out today completely broke the app on my phone. Doesn’t load anymore.
2.7.4 back up and running
by Symbiotic relationship on 2020/04/05 19:11
2.7.4 resolved the crash on startup issue I experienced with 2.7.3.
Shortcuts integration needed
by vladgaus on 2020/04/05 18:42
MyNoise is a pleasing, easy to use white noise app that is very helpful at what it provides. Adding integration to the native Shortcuts app in order to allow the creation of widgets would make it perfect.
Fixed
by Tolch0cking on 2020/04/05 18:25

This app is awesome.
App Crashing as of 04/03/20
by eyegnosis on 2020/04/05 02:21
Really enjoy this app - use it for multiple purposes on a daily basis...updated it today and now it keeps crashing upon opening the app. Even reinstalled the app as others have tried to no avail. Please fix this ASAP!!! Thank you in advance!! Stay safe folks!
Not working after update
by Wink7 on 2020/04/05 00:43
My MyNoise app won’t open after the last update.
Use it nightly
by MrGummischuh on 2020/04/04 19:03
I use this app every night and love it. But with the new update today 2.7.3, the app will no longer open on my iPhone.
Update killed it
by Mactopia1984 on 2020/04/04 17:14
Updated, wouldn’t launch, deleted it, downloaded it again, launched, saw the splash screen and it quit. Broken now.
Downloading extremely difficult!!
by Yagwara on 2020/04/02 03:37
I like this app on desktop. Cafe noise is very pleasant. There are many nice options. But on iOS, I’m trying to download just one noise. If I leave the app, or my phone locks, the download stops, and has to start again from the beginning if I return. So I have to keep playing with the app while waiting for the download. Which would be okay except that after fifteen minutes, the one noise I paid for is less than half downloaded. I am not going to poke my phone constantly for forty minutes just so this one thing will download. And that’s just for one background noise. Because of this, the app is not usable.
Not able to purchase All You Can Hear
by Unspecific_nick on 2020/03/28 16:46
I tried purchasing the All You Can Hear for $9.99. It popped up a dialog asking for my password, which was strange because I have fingerprint enabled. I had to get out of the app and go into my password manager to copy my password and now when I click on the $9.99 button, it does nothing and won’t allow me to purchase. I can still make single purchases, but not the “All You Can Hear”. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I’ve tried logging out and back into my Apple account and nothing helps. It still doesn’t allow me to make the purchase.
Perfect for tinnitus masking
by Treesntrees on 2020/03/26 00:07
I’ve used this app for years—almost an infinite variety of sounds with the way you can control the equalizer sliders. And you can mix sounds, so I layer tinnitus masking white noises with different natural soundscapes to prevent getting sick of the same sound all the time. It’s extremely high quality sound too—this app is a fundamental part of my life honestly, I couldn’t sleep without it. Highly recommended if you have tinnitus.
Amazing
by Egjftijfeegjasd on 2020/03/16 18:18
When I discovered this app a couple years ago I was just looking for something that played white noise, burbling water, or general nature sounds when I slept. But it blew away my expectations and offers more than I could have thought of on my own. Usability and customization is excellent. Variety and range of options incredible. The passion, experimentation, diverse tastes, and creativity of the app’s creator and his love of sound and audio comes through strongly. I increasingly explored new things and found both familiar and obscure chants, numerous variations on things like waves, rain, and running water with subtle but tangible differences I never would have thought I would care about, and a wealth of both natural and electronic / synthetic noises and soundscapes than I use when napping, meditating, or even sleeping that have a magical ability to tune out internal thoughts and self-dialogue, reset by brainwaves, and restore my focus and energy. While on pain meds and recovering from surgery with my leg immobilized, listening with earbuds dramatically improved my ability to focus away from the discomfort and sleep at night. Initially I just listened on my tablet and smart phone, but the audio quality is greatly enhanced with headphones, or decent earbuds if you’re not in a position to wear bulky headphones. It’s hard to imagine being without it now!
Helps me ignore Tinnitis when I’m reading/writing
by shiphassaled on 2020/02/27 22:08
I truly love the MyNoise app. It has given me an escape from the high pitched Tinnitis in my right ear. It even helps me sleep. I’ve read about similar apps, but what can beat a Spring Walk? Tinnitis can seem much louder when I don’t feel well. I just put in my earbuds and turn up MyNoise.
Love it!
by Mebby88 on 2020/02/21 13:20
I have listened to numerous rain sound makers and they are always not quite right. The first time I listened to myNoise I sat there grinning like an idiot! The rolling thunder is perfect!
It’s take too much space on iPhone
by SHLOMO64 on 2020/02/20 12:23
It’s take too much space on iPhone and iCloud. Much more thAn app itself. Actually like this app but do not have so much space and data. It’s very common in those type of apps, probably need looking for some else
A different noisemaker
by Stee-rider on 2020/02/19 18:14
This app pays a lot of attention to detail, and does interesting things such as varying the equalization as it plays, so even the same looped sound isn’t quite the same as it was previously. Excellent sound choices, including a nice “cafe” which is great for blocking voices in a noisy office. A couple issues. First off, the equalizer has a control where I use a two-finger drag to change all sliders together. Unfortunately this only works in one direction... up. Once I’ve gone up I can’t get it to go down again, except by switching to a different sound, then back to the one I’m working on. The second issue is that the sound catalog isn’t well organized. It’s not easy to find things. The search is okay, but overall I mainly find new things on the web site, or simply by scrolling and seeing what I find randomly. Good app overall.
I graduated college because of this app
by Love7654321 on 2020/02/13 23:35
I could not have asked for a better productivity-inducing app. It flawlessly blocks out noise from inconsiderate roommates and yapping co-workers. It allowed me to focus on my work in some of the most annoying conditions. I do think that the website offers a lot more sounds, such as the sailboat which is my favorite. It also helps me with my anxiety when I just need to calm down without all of the stimuli around me. It’s perfect for those craving to slow down the madness around them and those yearning to create their own little worlds. :)
One of a Kind
by Violet Paget on 2020/02/13 06:00
No other app I’ve found allows you to select a kind of noise, like rain or a colour noise, and then recalibrate or change the frequencies. I’ve been able to custom-make the perfect sounds for my sleep with this app, cancelling out all of the irritating sounds of apartment living. I really can’t do without it now! The only thing is that sometimes I return to the app to find that all of my saved custom sounds have been erased. I am still rating at 5 stars because this app is SO useful. unique, and flexible, and I don’t have that many saved sounds, but I can imagine that this is a bit of an issue for people who have created a whole library of very specific sounds.
Awesome, amazing and use it everyday at work to drown out the noisy office environment.
by Binyacom on 2020/01/23 15:14
I am so easily distracted by noise when trying to work at the computer. Been using this for years now and the money for access to all generators was way more than worth it. The Flying Fortress and Port Town are my favs because people can be having a loud conversation right behind me and I am blissfully unaware.
My anchor
by Klevine4 on 2020/01/23 08:48
This app is my anchor. No exaggeration, this app has greatly improved my life. I have sensory issues and this keeps me level and calm. It keeps me sane when traveling through busy airports and train stations. At work in our open office. At home with my weird cat talking too much. When I get overstimulated or anxious my rain preset calms me like nothing else. It brings me back to center. When I have trouble sleeping, I listen to the same preset and it calms my brain enough to turn off. I like that I was able to take the rain noise and tweak it. Their preset scenes were a great starting point. So I started “on the porch,” dropped the treble a bit to reduce stimulation and increased the bass to add more calm. It’s perfectly tailored to the needs of my ears and brain. Thank you so much to the team that made this. On a daily basis you improve my life.
A wonderful app that keeps on giving
by Bluntside on 2020/01/19 04:31
A variety of sounds and excellent presets! The ability to modify the frequency based in multi levels of, bass, treble, mids & highs, only further make this app wonderfully catered to your desired sound. Not too simple nor complex to use. Perfect for any user who just wants quality ambient sound. Well worth the price!
Used to Work
by Mocha2007 on 2020/01/13 11:32
The app used to work, but then randomly decided it was gonna crash every startup. Even reinstalling doesn't fix the issue. Shame.
Best Binaural App I’ve Come Across
by AnemicMe on 2020/01/12 22:31
Worth the money and the extra sounds were worth investing in as well. The way you can blend them with each other and also simply adjust each individual eq is phenomenal. I often let the application run in the back ground and mix it with a YouTube vid of Eckhart Tolle or Adyashanti~like magic. It’s worth noting that the quality of the sounds are pristine and full of detail, nothing cheap here.
Excellent App
by Traditional Teacher on 2020/01/08 18:04
After doing some research, my wife discovered that a popular audio/video channel compresses the sound, which ruins the whole effect of the audio. We live on a noisy, 5.5 lane street and had difficulty sleeping until we found this. Even the dog is sleeping better. This also sounds really good on Bose SoundLink Mini Speaker vs headphones at night.
Why are there no directions?
by jpear on 2020/01/07 01:47
I just downloaded My Noise and clicked on a lullaby sound...which I like BUT when couldn’t find a way to stop it so i could listen to others! I had to power down iPhone to get rid of it! What’s the secret?? Update: I wish to correct my review above. It was “operator error”....I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. Now I love the app.
Love!
by LCLMomma1392 on 2019/12/27 02:15
Love it. Period.
Flawless. The best free white noise app.
by Mrsuperman171 on 2019/12/06 07:51
I love this app. I didn’t even know the joy of mixing my own noise machine. It helped me sleep during the holiday when I wasn’t home with my ambient bathroom fan noise. Life saver.
Wonderful white noise generator
by wubwub on 2019/12/02 02:30
Each generator has multiple sliders to affect how the noise sounds and you can also set it to vary the sliders over time so the noises feel more natural. In some noise generators you can hear when the track repeats, I’ve never heard any loops in this one. You can also layer sounds. My current fave is to have rain set with waves overlaid. Perfect for a good night’s sleep.
Simply the best
by DanVT on 2019/11/23 00:12
Frequent updates and sounds for everyone! I can put myself in the back of a early 20th bomber or inside a code breaker room while listening to my WW2 audiobook. The sound of snow and footsteps on a mountaintop as I read Into Thin Air. Perfection - just needs Chromecast support!
Highly recommend
by Army Tired on 2019/11/14 18:12
Love this app. I have recommended it to a few people after talking about stress and sleep issues. I do not use it a whole bunch but it is my go to when I’m looking to get some good hard rest or if I cannot sleep. It does so much and the variety is fantastic. I have donated in the past and it just gives you more when you do. I own a few sound generation apps and like I said this is my go to.
Needs an alarm
by 345673827 on 2019/11/11 13:44
The sounds are great. They work really well BUT no alarm and that creates a huge problem for me. You can’t get a good nights sleep if you are worried about not hearing your alarm.
Astonishing Sound Quality and Depth
by ThePresent.TODAY on 2019/11/06 11:21
Fun, refreshing and outstanding value for the investment. Thankuou!
Nice! BUT lowQ his
by mimimamomo on 2019/10/30 04:08
Good job, devs. Well designed, intuitive: I was able to figure out the basics very easily, only the info I need is presented and there are *just* the right amount of features placed in logical places. BUT [adding some caveats to my previous super positive review: 1. I started playing the noise through my studio monitors to try to get a nice full range and block out sound more comfortably. Turns out the audio quality of the white noise at least is pretty low. I realize white noise itself is artifact-y but the way you can tell is that the high end kind of hurts to listen to. It does not sound smooth like other white noise hi end I’ve heard. Maybe that particular setting isnt designed that way? 2. No pink noise gens! But. On with praising the design: the first thing I see is the first stuff I’d want to be able to do, then if I look closer I find out I can save the setting I just made, then if I look even closer I find out I can *mix* *multiple* soundscapes which I can separately modify. The visuals are cool but not distracting and are appropriate to their functions. On & on. I work in live audio so I love that this lets me personalize my noise! Has a nice number of bands (but I think the right amount to not confuse average user), and the ranges w/in each work pretty well for my needs. It’s the super cheap version of noise canceling headphones. Has saved my sleep and study life so many times already and I’ve only had it a few weeks! Will donate to this when I find a link to. Definitely worth it. Thanks y’all!
Thank you for making this app!
by minimalistgrl on 2019/10/22 16:04
High quality sounds. Very therapeutic.
It won’t play through my Sonos Speakers.
by King of Makai on 2019/10/17 16:48
I ADORE THIS APP. It has helped me through so much, work, sleeping, life, and when I just need a moment to detach. The only problem that I have is that I can’t get the app to play through my wireless speakers in my home. It used to work, but I don’t know what happened. I have Sonos speakers. Developers, please allow this app to connect a play through wireless speakers again. Thank you!
If there was a fire and you could only save one app on your phone....
by Qweruhgdhjjjkjdsgg on 2019/10/15 01:07
I would pick this one. The $10 package was so very very worth it. Not sure what makes the process creating the soundscapes such a cathartic thing but I cannot get enough. These generators are amazing for sleeping, for studying, for turning an urban walk into a tropical paradise, good “white noise that’s so much more than just white noise” when you want to read. Simply the best.
The website is better
by shorty squad member on 2019/10/13 23:59
I found the app through the website and downloaded it so I didn’t have to waste phone battery leaving the screen open on a website for hours, but apparently that’s better than using the app. The website gives you access to basically all of the sounds for free, while this app makes you pay for them. I am just a high school student with ADHD that just wants a nice way to focus without spending money for college. Could there at least be a feature where you can select maybe 10 of the sounds for free while after that others cost money? Is that too much to ask???
Best soundscape app
by Ploskd on 2019/10/13 15:23
this app is really neat. huge library of soundscapes from nature to creepy or trippy. You can customize each scape and you can set it to vary so that it doesn't just sound repetitive
Everything you need
by WithjusTapistol on 2019/10/08 05:37
This is by far the best app for generating white noise. Very customizable and you can even combine sounds. My favorite is the rain and the ocean at the same time. The best feature is that it has adjustable sliders you can use to change the sound too. You can even have it randomly move up and down so it never sounds the same. I don’t write reviews for apps, but I’ve used this app for several years now and am very satisfied.
Best sleep sounds app
by Spudvision on 2019/10/07 04:10
I’ve tried every sleep sounds app and this is the best by far. You can unlock everything for a reasonable price and customize sounds to the extreme. This app is a work of art and I regret all the time I spent buying audio tracks and using other apps. Get this dang thing already!
App spontaneously stopped working
by prashranger on 2019/10/06 12:39
This was a pretty nice app until one day it simply stopped working. I opened up the app and no amount of coaxing could get it to do anything. What happened?
Best back ground sound app
by Baaaaambaaaam on 2019/10/02 13:22
Hands down this is the best sound for back ground, concentration, meditation out. The fact you can customize and save your customizations is stellar. For a free app it surpasses all the paid ones. Hands down to the devs on this masterpiece !!!!!!
Amazing!
by PocketMouse12 on 2019/09/28 07:35
While I had many other apps for listening to both rain and music, none of them were quiet loud. Then I stumbled on this app, and thank goodness I did because it has been such an amazing help! I purchased the bundle for all of the sounds, which I recommend! They are good for helping with not only sleeping, but with panic attacks and sensory overload as well. The only thing I was a bit saddened by was that I couldn’t seem to find a sound for constant thunder and heavy rain, which I hope they add soon! With all their updates and new sounds this is a must have app for people who need noise to sleep to!
Best noises on the internet. Period
by Careylin on 2019/09/27 04:24
Trying to fall asleep but the tinnitus in your ears is too loud? Me too. Luckily, Stephane has you covered with the best sounds I’ve ever had the pleasure to fall asleep to. The variety and depth of sounds are incredible, and there’s so many to choose from. You won’t regret buying all the sounds.
Best app for studying/focus
by adesinacat on 2019/09/19 16:45
Having ADHD and Gen Anxiety, I always on the lookout for things to calm me down and help shut out the world around me when I need to focus. While I usually prefer my Spotify playlist, this has become my go to for a few reasons. Unlike many apps like it, this one has two big differences. One, you can tweak the sounds to fit your preferences. I can have a hard time with DEEP base or high treble. This allows me to lower those to a setting that doesn’t hurt but helps block. The BIG win for this app is that you can have it playing behind almost any other app. Haven’t found one yet where it is made to stop. So I can have this app playing while my text-to-voice app reads my textbooks to me while on the train with my noice cancelling headphones. I am finally able to do what I can only do on my laptop. I also like that you can set it to randomize so it can change a bit allowing it to not fully get ignored and in a way stop working. You can also combine sounds to make your perfect noice. I haven’t paid for the extra sounds yet but plan on it very soon.
Tranquility
by PaidGoodMoney on 2019/09/18 11:27
It’s an amazing app, I use it for meditating, studying, sleeping and generally to keep at peace. Y’all did a wonderful job!
I really like it
by Coolcatanddonkeyanddog on 2019/09/07 18:54
I really like it, but I’m struggling figuring out how to turn the darn thing off
Surprisingly Awesome App
by tigherj on 2019/08/15 01:20
If you're looking for a way to get your ios device to create a sound environment to drown out external noise or you just enjoy having the soft wooshing sounds of water in a stream or crashing ocean waves, this app truly comes through. I have had ear ringing for years and early on discovered the benefits of white noise. This sound generator has programmed sounds like ocean and rain and others but it also has equalizer type sliders for different audio frequency bands - very versatile. So far as I've seen there are no annoying adds added. I really hate those 🤔 I use this app mainly to mask out people talking and other disturbances in my office environment. Beyond masking the annoyance of tinnitus I discovered that white noise seems to make it easier to tune out those wakeful thoughts when trying to sleep. It's kinda hard to explain and I've rarely tried to before but the recent emergence of ASMR (google it) might help explain.
A gift
by gregg-alan bartell on 2019/07/31 21:14
Thank you.
Best Noise App
by LongTimeNeopian on 2019/07/31 04:18
This is the best white noise app I’ve ever used. I’ve been relying on it to sleep for years. The customization is amazing, the many different noise options are all great, and the lack of “repeat” in the sounds makes all the options the best sounds to be distraction free and calming.
Best noise machine
by WendySnap on 2019/07/22 19:55
The equalizer on this is fantastic for covering up specific noises. I have used it in many different situations to mask dogs barking or even trains going by. Being able t adjust the range and volume of the sound is helpful and brilliant. My only complaint is that I bought the full download package on my iPad but it doesn’t seem to transfer to my iPhone, where I need it the most. I pulled down the download page as was suggested in another review but it did not do anything.
Great service, decent app
by BleepBloopYourSongIsntPoop on 2019/07/18 03:01
I use the myNoise website for my dungeons and dragons campaigns, and it works wonders for atmosphere. However, I downloaded this app to try and use the same service on a more portable device. However, the account that I use on my computer seems to not be accessible for the app. I get that they’re urging people to buy noise generators, but the generators all come free with one donation on the website, so... I’m just confused and annoyed. If I’m missing something, please correct me
Fantastic white noise with random levels
by Torque Burning on 2019/07/12 20:11
The ability to make randomly shifting white noise is great. My only request would be to keep the levels animating after I shift the volume, sometimes it gets too quiet to hear over another app and I have to turn all the animations on again whenever that happens.
Love it!
by skwidney on 2019/07/06 03:05
I use it a lot for concentrating at work or for drowning out people at work. I also use for naps! I love the news sounds that keep coming out. Such a great app. Thank you!!
Like having your own composer to help you focus
by A. Non E. Mouse on 2019/07/04 12:14
I usually listen to movie soundtracks, as most don’t have vocals. Things like Max Richter, Brian Eno, Johann Johansson. Using this app and, say, Black Hole, I can very easily mix up something very similar. The sounds generated by MyNoise aren’t repetitive with no clicks and pops where other apps loop a sound over and over. I also use the Grey Noise generator to help block out environmental sounds. I use the app through Bose QC-35 headphones, and (rarely) AirPod 2s. This is fantastic for helping with my ADD!
I use this app every night!
by lythir on 2019/06/29 02:47
Through pregnancy, nursing insomnia, and when I desperately need a nap, this app helps me quiet my mind and sleep consistently. I don’t leave reviews often, so this is saying a lot!
Settings Absent - Can’t Customize
by Loathes Advertising on 2019/06/26 09:08
Extremely distracting useless “bars.” No clear controls or directions to eliminate. I couldn’t locate settings to set for only sounds.
Absolutely Incredible!
by App_Designer_5274 on 2019/06/22 04:38
Simply put, this is one of the greatest apps ever made. A very intuitive design and interface, fantastic accessibility features, and a great sound selection. Not having to worry about a time limit with each audio clip is a life-saver. I am definitely sharing this with friends. Great job!
Multi-Gen broken
by StmAppleSeed on 2019/06/19 17:17
This is normally a five star app but I made the mistake of upgrading (to version 2.7.2) and now the application crashes every time I try to create a multigen. Also, all my saved multigen favorites no longer play. Reinstalling does not help. No response from developer for 2 weeks so feel compelled to write this review to warn others not to upgrade.

It’s a good app. It’d be amazing if I could use it on my Mac
The most flexible and affordable
by More nerd girl on 2019/06/06 10:10
Have tried MANY white noise generators. THIS is the one I like most. The free defaults are nice. Buy all the sounds or just a few and $0.99 is worth the price for one sound unless more that 9 sounds are desired. Getting a lot of variety from three purchased sounds. Also, and this is a HUGE problem with OTHER white noise apps: the musical sounds are too repetitive. That has not been the case so far with myNoise. Too many other apps do not have previews before you buy: THIS WAS DOES! There are 10 ways to control the strength/volume of each “noise” plus presets. Sounds can be mixed within the app and can be played with OTHER apps. Takes a minute to figure out how to save NAMED favorites and mixes but that can be overlooked. Looking forward to some super zen moments. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Surprised at how much you get for free!
by LinkTiger on 2019/06/03 02:34
I had gotten used to the white noise my boyfriend uses to sleep, so when he was traveling, I downloaded this on a lark, expecting a no-frills basic mode with aggressive up-sells. I could not have been more wrong! This is a quality app with loads of settings, options, and features right out of the box! Sure, there are ways to pay, but they are discrete and tasteful; even if you never pony up a cent, you are getting an app of uncompromising quality and polish. Thank you, developers. Now, if you don’t mind, I’ll let these soothing starship engine sounds lull me to sleep at warp speed.

easily the best money i’ve ever spent on an app
Phenomenal use of technology and sound
by Terrance Hall on 2019/05/30 13:03
I wish I had this app years ago. Props to the team who made this!
Great app
by TJ sjb on 2019/05/29 11:55
Tremendous variety of sounds. Be careful about purchasing a few sounds and then buying the whole package. Any purchases you make prior to purchasing all the sounds will not count toward the final cost. “All you can hear” costs $8.99. If you purchased 5 sounds prior to paying the $8.99, you’ll be paying almost $14.
A big help for both focusing and relaxing
by fred_gawilawitz on 2019/05/16 17:40
If you enjoy the website, having the app insures continual music. And you can get your favorite scenes and support the developer (who donates an insane amount of time to these) for just a buck each. Be sure to check out his other project Calmyleon.com. I would love to see it become another app. Thank you Dr. Pigeon!
Amazing app, fixed the no-download bug!
by The Winged Wombat on 2017/08/13 09:10
Edit: You can disregard the below review. The bug is now fixed for me even though it took a while and the app is 5 stars again. Thank you to the creators of myNoise for making the app. Hands-down best sound app for readers, writers, sounds for sleep, meditation...I could go on. Just wonderful, honestly! Not much more to add. If anyone else is having a similar issue, try refreshing the download page and letting the sound generators roll in one at a time until everything has loaded. (As said in the developer response to this review as well) It doesn't take very long at all and when they're loaded up you can download any of them without hassle. Old review: I used to love this app. I recently switched from an iPhone 5s to a 6s. I had previously purchased the 10 dollar package unlocking everything but suddenly I'm unable to download any generators. I've tried restoring my purchases multiple times, reinstalling the app, it's all useless. When I go to the download tab, none of the soundscapes are even available to download - they just don't appear anymore. Instead I'm left with the Tip Jar and a blank endless loading page. I don't have any use for this app until this is fixed.
It’s good, but wish there was a bit more variety for free
by proboning on 2019/01/12 18:00
I know it sounds selfish, but I wish there was a bit more to listen to for free, like distant thunderstorm and their more ethereal ones like Anamnesis (loved distant thunderstorm with Gregorian chants, and grey noise with Anamnesis is god tier). I discovered myNoise through their website and there’s such amazing variety, and I was so excited to find out there was an app so I could turn it on to help me fall asleep, but then I discovered none of the sounds I like are available, and I don’t particularly like any of the ones that are free. And unfortunately I don’t have $5 I can just spend on a bunch of sounds. A bit sad about that, I wish I could! Other than that I really love all the features on this app! The sliders are great (though not as advanced as they are on a browser, I noticed), and the fact you can combine sounds (which I wasn’t expecting) is so great, as well as the fact that you can set a timer so it’s not running all night draining your battery! I actually really love that feature a lot. Last night I managed to fall asleep to the temple bells and the white noise, and will try it again tonight! It’s an awesome idea for an app!
Ahhhhhmazing
by Secretdreamer on 2018/08/01 19:55
I'll never need to download another "relaxing sounds" app again. This one blows all the others away. I am amazed by it each and every night. I have a set of really nice headphones and I'm pretty picky when it comes to sound quality. I feel like I am actually "THERE" (wherever there might be, a Japanese garden, a steel mill, in a tent during a thunderstorm, a cathedral in the quiet moments before mass). I've never experienced another app quite like this. Spend the extra dollars on the unlimited access to the different downloads, Italy's for itself in no time at all. One of the coolest apps I've ever purchased. (Also to the creator the new "pilgrim" setting is divine, one of the prettiest things I've heard. I hope you are making a living off your skills because you are certainly talented and knowledgeable enough to be! And I LOVE the fact there is a soundscape dedicated to Oxygene. My dad used to put the record on his super nice stereo in the early 80s when I was a child and we would listen to it together, describing to each other what the music made us see. One of my first real memories of music listening.)
Surprisingly Awesome App
by tigherj on 2019/08/15 01:20
If you're looking for a way to get your ios device to create a sound environment to drown out external noise or you just enjoy having the soft wooshing sounds of water in a stream or crashing ocean waves, this app truly comes through. I have had ear ringing for years and early on discovered the benefits of white noise. This sound generator has programmed sounds like ocean and rain and others but it also has equalizer type sliders for different audio frequency bands - very versatile. So far as I've seen there are no annoying adds added. I really hate those 🤔 I use this app mainly to mask out people talking and other disturbances in my office environment. Beyond masking the annoyance of tinnitus I discovered that white noise seems to make it easier to tune out those wakeful thoughts when trying to sleep. It's kinda hard to explain and I've rarely tried to before but the recent emergence of ASMR (google it) might help explain.
Amazing
by Egjftijfeegjasd on 2020/03/16 18:18
When I discovered this app a couple years ago I was just looking for something that played white noise, burbling water, or general nature sounds when I slept. But it blew away my expectations and offers more than I could have thought of on my own. Usability and customization is excellent. Variety and range of options incredible. The passion, experimentation, diverse tastes, and creativity of the app’s creator and his love of sound and audio comes through strongly. I increasingly explored new things and found both familiar and obscure chants, numerous variations on things like waves, rain, and running water with subtle but tangible differences I never would have thought I would care about, and a wealth of both natural and electronic / synthetic noises and soundscapes than I use when napping, meditating, or even sleeping that have a magical ability to tune out internal thoughts and self-dialogue, reset by brainwaves, and restore my focus and energy. While on pain meds and recovering from surgery with my leg immobilized, listening with earbuds dramatically improved my ability to focus away from the discomfort and sleep at night. Initially I just listened on my tablet and smart phone, but the audio quality is greatly enhanced with headphones, or decent earbuds if you’re not in a position to wear bulky headphones. It’s hard to imagine being without it now!
Incredible. One of the best apps I’ve ever purchased.
by Devil'sOtherOpinion on 2018/07/09 20:18
I’m not much of a ‘review’ writer. I appreciate those of you who do take the time to write them and bring my attention to great apps, so I thought I’d take a moment and try to do the same: This is a phenomenal app. It’s such a complex, deep dive into both entrainment and relaxing sounds that you’re really only able to appreciate its greatness by purchasing it. The options for customization are extensive and impressive; as a sound engineer myself, I’m blown away by the sophistication, depth and attention to detail. It’s always being updated. Couldn’t recommend more highly if you have attention deficit challenges (like me), love immersing yourself in other aural worlds. (The engineering of the binaural generators, by the way, is worth the price alone.) Be sure to use headphones (unless you’re using this for background ambience) and take time to explore.
A great app with a terrible bug
by WolvenStarXC on 2018/09/12 09:26
I so badly want to give this app 5 stars like it would ordinarily deserve, but unfortunately the ability to mix sounds into custom “multigen” experiences, which is one of its most unique and defining features, is hampered by the fact that you will eventually lose all of your work. If you quit the app (by swiping it up), return to it, and then go to the favorites section where all of your custom and multigen sounds are found, they will have disappeared. I figured a workaround was merely to keep the app open in the background at all times. However, today I discovered that the app had frozen and rebooted automatically. This wouldn’t be much of a problem ordinarily, but considering it resulted in all of my multigens being wiped again, it’s more than just a slight inconvenience. I hope the developers can fix this issue because I’d love to purchase the premium package to access every sound. I will be holding off until I can actually save my crafted multigens.
Nice. Unique. Hard work that will pay off.
by GadgetGuruGal on 2019/02/19 13:25
I just it when I find apps that don’t just LOOK polished and professional (though many don’t anyway), but actually perform great as well. Nothing is perfect when released of course.... beta testers are usually the first people who use the app. What makes the difference is if the developer cares about their product enough to respond to (helpful) feedback, correct the bugs, and update appropriately when there are IOS changes, etc. I also think it’s classy as hell that she’s not even charging for this yet (only suggesting options for those who would like to help with this expensive project). Many other developers want you to pay a monthly subscription for pieces of half-put-together, never-updated crap now. She’s still working hard to make it perfect. That works for me.
Stellar app
by Sllbt on 2020/05/13 13:06
I have struggled with insomnia most of my life, and nothing has ever helped me as much as this app has. I can turn on one of my favorites about a half hour before I try to sleep and by then I can go right out. For me, the water and ocean sounds are too picks; the ferry ride, the peninsula, and pebble beach are three I love already, and I am finding new ways to love all the rest too. Being able to fine tune the sounds makes all the difference; I’ve always been frustrated in the past by liking most of a ‘background’ sound, but there always seemed to be a factor mixed in for me that ruined it. Not now! The variety of recordings (and incredible clean quality) make this an app worth every penny. If you’re someone who could benefit from calming sounds for any reason, this is the app for you.
Thank you for this app!
by VVI-IAT'S I-IER FACE on 2020/04/14 07:54
I’ve been struggling with falling asleep, but thanks to this app, it’s so much easier to sleep now! I love to draw, and when I do, I often notice it’s too quiet. I’ll usually play music to fill the silence. However, that doesn’t help me sleep and I usually have trouble finding just the right song to play to fit with the feel of what I’m drawing. And also, $10 for all the sounds?! That’s so AWESOME! There’s a sound for everything and anything! I’m listening to sounds as I’m writing (or, um, typing) this! Again, thank you so much for this wonderful app and to those thinking about getting this app, it’s so worth every penny! There are countless amounts of sounds and many people making new sounds every day (or so) and I would totally recommend it! n^ v ^n
One of the best apps I've seen in a long time
by littlegreekalexandra on 2017/07/26 08:24
I have a long history of insomnia that recently has reared its ugly head. A friend recommended the webpage and I fell in love instantly. I've already told everyone I know. From the calibration adjustment with hearing loss so you can hear the sound the way it is intended, to the authentic sounds recorded ON LOCATION, I just had to have this app. It is even better than I anticipated. It has a timer AND an alarm! Customizable calibration for each device you listen to it on! I listen to it all the time now. While I donate plasma, while I drive, through my Alexa on Bluetooth, while I sleep... $10 for a ton of customizable sounds is well worth the money. And certainly cheaper than a prescription for sleep medication. It's worked!
Simply the best noise generator out there!!
by frannyval on 2018/04/07 00:30
I have been using MyNoise online for years now and am SO happy there is an app too! I love the endless possibilities available - especially when you listen to multiple generators at once. The sounds are so clear and detailed - the quality is just so impressive. And I’m obsessed with the calibrator and animation options, it helps me make the noises so personal to my mood. Basically, the person who created this is hands down amazing and a genius in my book! Thank you for being passionate about sounds and noises, and for producing such amazing work! If I could give one suggestion - the online website has volume buttons for the calibrator, so you can turn up your set calibration all at once. I think it would be helpful to have something similar on the app. My headphones can only go so loud, so it would be awesome to be able to turn up the calibrator without moving each individual frequency/sound. Thank you again for making this app & website! It’s amazing! I highly suggest everyone donate online and purchase all the sounds in the app so that this amazing work can continue and more sounds can be added 😊
Great app!
by locklyle on 2020/05/11 22:24
Ok, so I don’t usually write reviews, but this app is so good it’s worth it. I have had it for about 10 minutes and I’m already in love. It’s super customizable, so if you don’t like the default settings for one particular sound, you can completely change it. You can customize it for yourself, or you can choose from a long list of presets. I have not yet explored all the features, but from what I can tell, this app is totally worth it. Two suggestions: Maybe have a little tutorial in the beginning? I mean, it’s not super hard to figure out on your own, but it would be nice to know about all the features up front. The second thing: I wish that the app had all the same great sounds as the website! Other than that, it’s an amazing app and I totally recommend it.
One of a Kind
by Violet Paget on 2020/02/13 06:00
No other app I’ve found allows you to select a kind of noise, like rain or a colour noise, and then recalibrate or change the frequencies. I’ve been able to custom-make the perfect sounds for my sleep with this app, cancelling out all of the irritating sounds of apartment living. I really can’t do without it now! The only thing is that sometimes I return to the app to find that all of my saved custom sounds have been erased. I am still rating at 5 stars because this app is SO useful. unique, and flexible, and I don’t have that many saved sounds, but I can imagine that this is a bit of an issue for people who have created a whole library of very specific sounds.
Great variety and adjustability
by random wanderer on 2018/01/26 22:59
I've been quite pleasantly surprised with the wide variety of sounds available within this app. Even more, the ability to adjust various components of each sound is fantastic -- for example, within the Japanese Garden I can turn up the Waterfall, which I like to hear, and turn to nothing the Cicadas, which I'd rather not hear. This way each sound option permits customization to your own preferences. It's also possible to store your settings for future use, which is very handy. I enjoyed so many of the sounds available that I purchased the entire generators bundle, and I don't regret the purchase in the slightest.
Sensory overloaded? The world getting to you??
by caseymiche on 2018/09/23 05:11
This app is the single greatest app ever in existence. I’m a sensory-overloaded artist who’s an orange in a world filled of apples....and all the world is full of hate and blips and beeps and rings and flashing signs and ticks and tv’s and thumping cars and I’ve gone mad in the process of trying to find peace in this world. MyNoise has given me what I’ve needed. You get free stuff, but paying the $9 for the unlimited sound programs is well worth it. If you’re anything like me....overloaded in a loud world that you don’t feel you belong in, try this app to help you escape. Trust me. It’s worth it. If I had a lot of money....I’d give so much more money to these soul-sensitive creators.
Used for years, love it
by connieRiddle on 2017/10/09 10:19
I don't usually leave reviews, especially for apps. I feel that this is mostly b/c of the fact that they don't usually feel personal. MyNoise started out being one of the few noise generators with tonal control and has only gotten better with every update. The creators have really made this a usable and specific to the user. It is extremely customizable to the user so that you can have a personal setting that makes sense for you, and the creators have made it to accommodate someone like me, which I love. It has helped a ton with my learning disabilities and mental stuff. If I could leave more that five stars I would.
Can’t eliminate the “drip” in rain sounds
by Dimmiedisaster on 2018/03/16 03:59
All the tones in “rain sounds” include burbling or dripping noises that over whelm the white noise. Even the more bass sounds (except sub bass which is thunder). I don’t strongly associate rain with dripping or burbling. All the rain tones sound like rain AND a fountain. Maybe that’s what rain sounds like in more rural areas, I wouldn’t know, but but in the city you wouldn’t experience a dripping sound unless your gutter is broken or your roof is leaking, dripping = stress. It wouldn’t be much of a problem except every single tone except sub bass has dripping sounds seems like something as customizable as this would let you customize the dripping out. Its not subtle background dripping either. Each tone has a drip in line with that tone and you can’t increase the white noise tone without increasing the drip.
Wide range of options and personalization
by SeriousTurtle on 2019/01/31 20:22
MyNoise offers a wide range of quality looping sounds to mix within pre-made soundboards and even allows you to create custom mixes between 2 or more soundboards. Pros: can set a timer/alarm so music stops after a while or at an exact time, perfect for bedtime use. Sounds can be animated so that the mix is constantly changing, great for immersion. Con: making custom mixes is addictive and I want a way to easily share my own and browse those created by other users. So far, all I have found is a subreddit which links to the MyNoise website, but nothing to import directly into the app.
Actually Cancels Sound!
by amberwolf2 on 2018/09/20 14:21
This is this first app I have found that cancels outside noise without the need to turn your headphones up incredibly loud! I also like how when you click the "about" section for each sound, it tells you what the sound is good for (relaxation, noise canceling, ect.), all sounds included in the soundscape, and the purpose of each soundscape! There are even soundscapes for tabletop and card gamers, destination soundscapes, and more neutral things like tones and white noise! Also! There are 10 sliders per soundscape. Hate that one noise in the background? Turn it completely off without affecting the other sounds! The recordings are quite long. You don't hear the same bird song for a long time, and if you turn on "animate" you most likely won't notice the repeat. Because animate changes the volume of all sliders randomly, making all 10 sounds at different noise levels all the time. This is has been the only effective sound app I have found, and I absolutely love it!
Tranquility
by Gina Hart on 2017/07/22 20:16
To call this "noise" is an unfortunate misnomer. The tranquility imparted by this app is my salvation at work (or any time I want to feel more peaceful). The incredible array of sounds and the versatility in how they can be played means that you will never have to hear the same mix twice (unless you want to). As if that weren't enough, you can precisely calibrate the app to your personal hearing, and that's no gimmick. The difference after calibration is a genuinely noticeable improvement. I like the app so much that I bought the full app AND donated to the web site. I buy very, very few apps. This one is absolutely worth every penny.
Extraordinary App
by Rkj7738 on 2020/04/21 16:49
This app does things with sounds I didn’t even know were possible on an iPhone. Not only can you mix up to 5 different tones/sounds at once, you can use an equalizer board to pick which portions to accentuate. Furthermore , you can then even overlay that mix you created with music or sounds from another app, such as Sirius or your music library. So, if you wanted to create a mix of waves crashing with jungle bird sounds with monks chanting, and then overlay that mix with a Steely Dan song, yep you can do that. This, you will have endless creative music possibilities with this. Software makers like this deserve our highest support. Their talent is exceptional.
Surprised at how much you get for free!

Best sound program in the App Store
by Copelco66 on 2018/02/22 23:25
I Purchased the full version not because I needed every sound but because I felt the developer deserved payment for a great program like this. It’s too bad other apps in the iTunes Store don’t provide this kind of value. I have tinnitus and have found several settings that seemed to help. My wife also enjoys many of the other options as background noise because she is a writer and it helps her set the mood in her mind as she writes. Great app download and purchase. There was a problem but the developer responded and we resolved the issue quickly. Great app, BUY IT!
I graduated college because of this app
by Love7654321 on 2020/02/13 23:35
I could not have asked for a better productivity-inducing app. It flawlessly blocks out noise from inconsiderate roommates and yapping co-workers. It allowed me to focus on my work in some of the most annoying conditions. I do think that the website offers a lot more sounds, such as the sailboat which is my favorite. It also helps me with my anxiety when I just need to calm down without all of the stimuli around me. It’s perfect for those craving to slow down the madness around them and those yearning to create their own little worlds. :)
I love drowning! Out sound! And also in water!
by 2qutelatrice on 2017/07/25 08:44
I have this horrible problem with not being able to sleep if I can hear someone breathing and this app completely drowns out everything, AND it doesn't keep me up like music does bc there's not much for my brain to focus on. It's also nice to just listen to the sounds when I'm walking to class. I like doing that because no one around me knows I'm not listening to Country Musics Top 40, but actually the sound of sub base water noises and pretending I'm chilling at the bottom of the sea next to a frog on a log in a hole in the bottom of the sea.
This really helps
by ejsaunier on 2018/09/07 17:55
I struggle with manic depression and anxiety. It’s a daily struggle. I can tell you that reading the Bible and this app is the only tangible help I’ve managed to stumble upon. These noises are calming and good for meditation, which is the best medication. The actual medication would make me drowsy, but this gets me moving and makes me remember to love life. Reading my bible and listening to these sounds have helped so much; I’ve seen improvement in my mental health in a matter of days. Thank you developers and other contributors, this app has changed my life. And I thank God for you! You are such a blessing!
This is the only noise/sound/music therapy app you need
by Butchadd on 2018/02/19 15:07
Phenomenal, sound science, compassionately and intuitively designed, highly adjustable to fit every individuals hearing abilities preferences and audio-therapeutic needs. I find it never gets old trying out all the sounds, mixing them, layering them, possibilities are endless... I loved my white noise pro app but this BLOWS IT OUT OF THE WATER!! I almost forget to take my Wellbutrin (I feel that good! But never go off antidepressants without medical supervision 😉 however I’m off of my temazepam, a heavy sleeping pill/ narcotic sedative, thanks to this wonderful app!! Never felt better!
Incredible app
by Joflo916 on 2018/05/08 16:48
I don’t write many review but as I download this app on my next new phone for the third time, I figure they deserve it. The sounds are incredible. The scenes I can set depending on my mood. Above and beyond any other I’ve tried. I paid for full access and I’ve never regretted it. Thank you devs!! Ps. Devs - As I was writing this review I was also going to add the suggestion to let me listen to other music while using your sounds, but I stopped myself to make sure it wasn’t actually a feature I’d missed. Turns out it’s there and now I’m DOUBLY stoked to try new combos!!! THANKYOU
Stunningly good!
by Sound-A-Plenty on 2019/02/15 10:31
Imagine you have a world class recording studio in your hand. Tracks and tracks of prerecorded stereo sounds of, well, almost anything you can think of. And you can mix, layer, and customize 50 of those tracks at once (5 sets of 10). Yes, 50. Then tap “Animate” and the whole shindig starts mixing itself in random and delightful ways - oh dear! Sounds great, right (pun intended)? Now, imagine that you can leave it running in the background while you motor around the rest of your online (or offline) world. There it is then. I’m an audiologist and recording engineer. I use the app at work to recreate challenging listening environments when working with patients with hearing loss. I also use the provided high frequency noise bands for tinnitus testing and management. All with great results. If hearing and sound is your thing, you need this app. It’s just fun. And useful. And well designed and executed. Kudos!
A monumental app
by Borisattva on 2017/10/20 16:02
If all sound generation apps were mountains, myNoise would be mt. Everest. It is simply a cut above the rest. It offers thousands upon thousands of combinations of sounds, all of them engineered to a high degree of perfection. You can mix and match and customize so the sounds feel just right. Customizability is off the charts. You can even blend it with audio from other apps. I was blown away by the diversity and sheer quality of the sounds and keep discovering new ones. I use it daily and it has quickly become my favorite app.
Thrilling
by Jayymf on 2018/04/04 16:59
MyNoise delivers an unlimited array of noise combinations for every environment. No matter your mood you are sure to find a thrilling sound that will white wash the background and keep you focused on any task. I’ve been using the app for a month and continue to find sounds that keep me going. The calibrations to block the background help with my early onset hearing loss. The one MAJOR drawback is the apps ignoring of IOS’ headphone music protocols. Pause your Airbuds and MyNoise keeps playing. Remove your Airbud and MyNoise keeps playing. This is incredibly frustrating. Resolve this and I will change my review to 6 stars.
Cannot open app anymore/after new update every is working again
by TiyAmonet on 2020/04/05 22:13
I just got the latest update, and the app closes when I try to open it now. I’ve used the years to help soothe my sleeping patterns. Very disappointing! After another app update, it appears that everything is back to working the way it always has! Thank you so much for the quick response. I have enjoyed this app for years for helping me sleep. I truly enjoy the ability to layer tracks. Thanks again!
Love it
by Lte0 on 2018/09/20 02:31
This is just by far the best sound app I've ever gotten. I use it for a myriad of reasons. I do wish that the different categories were separated by headings or something that would make it easier to navigate with voiceover. And the multi gen is somewhat accessible with voiceover but it's extremely finicky. I'm giving this app five stars because it does not detract from my overall experience, I just want to give my honest feedback. Also, I wonder if it’s possible to use the magic generators with the app.
Fantastic!
by Rodscha on 2019/02/16 21:06
I really, really love this app! I’m so glad I found it. I use it every day. The quality of the recordings are outstanding and the ability to adjust the noises (and the composition of the noise itself!) is absolutely fantastic!! It’s not just a recording of a sound but rather multiple channels of sounds that compose a noise. You can tune this exactly to your liking. Amazing. Just bought myself a new pair of speakers because of this :-). I own a handful of other noise apps and nothing comes even close. Get it.
My favorite. Now crashes on every launch
by Brandopants1 on 2019/02/01 11:14
Not sure what broke but I got my install into a corrupt state and now I can't launch it. I deleted it and restored it from the store and on launch, when prompted to restore old purchases, it just crashes again. Shame. Also would love to see two new generators sorely missing: 1) a simple box fan: this is my infant sons favorite sound. 2) distant ocean: the current ocean sound has the close up sound of the waves receding on the sand. I miss the sound of the surf from the window a few hundred yards away..not on the beach. Rolling off the high end gets close but it isn't the same.
Best background noise app ever
by Some random nerd from wj on 2018/01/28 15:33
So many amazing sounds for focus and relaxation and just about anything you can think of The only app I have found so far with a good railroads sound (without the whistles) Definitely worth buying the all you can hear package; if you have one or two specific sounds you want maybe buy them individually but if you want to play around with it and see what’s there definitely get the whole thing it’s literally just $10 for over 150 sounds so far
Doesn’t have a whole lot for free
by Andrew1243 on 2018/09/12 12:10
But the things you do have are incredible! I love that you provide the option to mix sound with other apps. Every sound app should have that! But I do have a glitch. Every time I compose a favorite sound, when I make a second one, it disappears always leaving the first one only. This can be quite a nuisance, as I can never compose more than one favorite at a time. If you fix this that would be extraordinary! I will keep 5 stars for support
Best noise machine
by WendySnap on 2019/07/22 19:55
The equalizer on this is fantastic for covering up specific noises. I have used it in many different situations to mask dogs barking or even trains going by. Being able t adjust the range and volume of the sound is helpful and brilliant. My only complaint is that I bought the full download package on my iPad but it doesn’t seem to transfer to my iPhone, where I need it the most. I pulled down the download page as was suggested in another review but it did not do anything.
Love it but am disappointed...
by j.r.j. on 2019/04/14 15:35
Recently after an update, the release notes claimed you can sync your favorites via iCloud. As someone who went all in and purchased all noises, I’m disappointed that the syncing does not work. I sent feedback to the dev from within the app about it and never heard back. It’s a great app otherwise which I use on several devices but the syncing “bug” and sending feedback and never getting a response is enough for me to drop what would have been five stars to only a three. By the way, favorites have always been buggy even on the newest devices.
THANK YOU!

Thanks for helping me get lost in a cacophony of binaural beats, ocean waves, and Yakutian voices! Truly a relaxing, motivating, and easy way to drown out my surroundings while working, reading, or winding down at the end of the day. Love the Animate function and all the free sounds to make my own personal and ever-morphing sound bubble. Wish list: When creating favorite multigens, would love to have the sound levels and animations saved as well, instead of having to tweak and adjust every time I call it back up.
A different noisemaker
by Stee-rider on 2020/02/19 18:14
This app pays a lot of attention to detail, and does interesting things such as varying the equalization as it plays, so even the same looped sound isn’t quite the same as it was previously. Excellent sound choices, including a nice “cafe” which is great for blocking voices in a noisy office. A couple issues. First off, the equalizer has a control where I use a two-finger drag to change all sliders together. Unfortunately this only works in one direction... up. Once I’ve gone up I can’t get it to go down again, except by switching to a different sound, then back to the one I’m working on. The second issue is that the sound catalog isn’t well organized. It’s not easy to find things. The search is okay, but overall I mainly find new things on the web site, or simply by scrolling and seeing what I find randomly. Good app overall.
The website is better
by shorty squad member on 2019/10/13 23:59
I found the app through the website and downloaded it so I didn’t have to waste phone battery leaving the screen open on a website for hours, but apparently that’s better than using the app. The website gives you access to basically all of the sounds for free, while this app makes you pay for them. I am just a high school student with ADHD that just wants a nice way to focus without spending money for college. Could there at least be a feature where you can select maybe 10 of the sounds for free while after that others cost money? Is that too much to ask???
My anchor
by Klevine4 on 2020/01/23 08:48
This app is my anchor. No exaggeration, this app has greatly improved my life. I have sensory issues and this keeps me level and calm. It keeps me sane when traveling through busy airports and train stations. At work in our open office. At home with my weird cat talking too much. When I get overstimulated or anxious my rain preset calms me like nothing else. It brings me back to center. When I have trouble sleeping, I listen to the same preset and it calms my brain enough to turn off. I like that I was able to take the rain noise and tweak it. Their preset scenes were a great starting point. So I started “on the porch,” dropped the treble a bit to reduce stimulation and increased the bass to add more calm. It’s perfectly tailored to the needs of my ears and brain. Thank you so much to the team that made this. On a daily basis you improve my life.
Like having your own composer to help you focus
by A. Non E. Mouse on 2019/07/04 12:14
I usually listen to movie soundtracks, as most don’t have vocals. Things like Max Richter, Brian Eno, Johann Johansson. Using this app and, say, Black Hole, I can very easily mix up something very similar. The sounds generated by MyNoise aren’t repetitive with no clicks and pops where other apps loop a sound over and over. I also use the Grey Noise generator to help block out environmental sounds. I use the app through Bose QC-35 headphones, and (rarely) AirPod 2s. This is fantastic for helping with my ADD!
Everything you need
by WithjusTapistol on 2019/10/08 05:37
This is by far the best app for generating white noise. Very customizable and you can even combine sounds. My favorite is the rain and the ocean at the same time. The best feature is that it has adjustable sliders you can use to change the sound too. You can even have it randomly move up and down so it never sounds the same. I don’t write reviews for apps, but I’ve used this app for several years now and am very satisfied.
The most flexible and affordable
by More nerd girl on 2019/06/06 10:10
Have tried MANY white noise generators. THIS is the one I like most. The free defaults are nice. Buy all the sounds or just a few and $0.99 is worth the price for one sound unless more that 9 sounds are desired. Getting a lot of variety from three purchased sounds. Also, and this is a HUGE problem with OTHER white noise apps: the musical sounds are too repetitive. That has not been the case so far with myNoise. Too many other apps do not have previews before you buy: THIS WAS DOES! There are 10 ways to control the strength/volume of each “noise” plus presets. Sounds can be mixed within the app and can be played with OTHER apps. Takes a minute to figure out how to save NAMED favorites and mixes but that can be overlooked. Looking forward to some super zen moments. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
I use it everyday, at work and for sleep
by Megyn Cora on 2018/01/10 07:20
No other app lets me dial in so exactly the mix of sound I need for sleep, for the train, to cover chatter at the office, and so forth. The sounds are really good and to be able to mix them together is great — to be able to mix them with other apps is brilliant! I have used many apps (white noise, brainwave, etc.) but I always come back to this one for the infinite customization possible. I was happy to pay for the whole bundle.
Perfect for tinnitus masking
by Treesntrees on 2020/03/26 00:07
I’ve used this app for years—almost an infinite variety of sounds with the way you can control the equalizer sliders. And you can mix sounds, so I layer tinnitus masking white noises with different natural soundscapes to prevent getting sick of the same sound all the time. It’s extremely high quality sound too—this app is a fundamental part of my life honestly, I couldn’t sleep without it. Highly recommended if you have tinnitus.
