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!

Ratings and Reviews
This app is just amazing!! I’m shocked by how much I love this app. Whether you want to sleep, focus, or relax this is the one to get. I’d downloaded it when I downloaded a highly promoted, subscription based, soundscape generator. I didn’t open myNoise until a week after I’d deleted the other; one night when my younger neighbor and friends were keeping me awake and I couldn’t stand another night of ear plugs. I played the free rain track over a speaker. Ahhhh, so relaxing, and enough randomness, that my brain stopped paying attention to the noises downstairs. The next day I sampled some of the non-free tracks, and took a chance on the “All you can hear” option. Currently, the “Distant thunder” track is my favorite for sleeping, but others I’ve tried have been great too. I often play one of the tonal tracks in the evening to relax. I’ve mostly used the default options, but the customization, and mix options are unbelievable. The free tracks are good, and really free; no ads, but the “All you can hear” option is a bargain if you can afford it. Having experienced more of the paid tracks, I would pay five times the price for the all access pack. Thanks so much for creating this amazing app!!
Amazing app, fixed the no-download bug!
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.
Developer Response ,
We are aware of that bug affecting some users. This is a bug. Try going to the download tab, pull-down-to-refresh, and wait... sometimes a minute. The list may update correctly at the end. Next update we work on, will fix this. Extremely sorry for the inconvenience.
Get the all-you-can-hear for the best White Noise app around.
So, honestly, if you need a FREE white noise app, there are better ones. However, a couple of dollars turns this into far and away the best background noise app in the store. It is more powerful and more customizable than others and the sounds are of higher quality. You will never hear the loop... it might not even exist in the way it does in other apps. The sliders and mixer features provide a inconceivable number of changeable background noises and environments. Some other apps may appear to have more sound options, but because of the precise way MyNoise works, the possibilities are truly limitless. Using the sliders, each sound provides a nearly infinite number of listening choices and venturing into the generator to make custom mixes opens up literally endless soundscapes.
I love MyNoise so much that I have the app and am a continual supporter of the website. I have tried them all. Every so often I will find other generators with a specific recording or two I quite like. Overall, though, this is easily the best.
