‣ "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.

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
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.
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.)
It’s good, but wish there was a bit more variety for free
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!
