Time Magazine: “If you're committed to going deep, go Naturespace. This is some of the best sound quality out there.”
At Naturespace, we do things differently. Using advanced recording techniques, we capture all of our nature audio in the wild to create the ultimate headphone listening experience. If sound quality matters to you, then you owe it to yourself to try Naturespace. Our immersive, spatially accurate, 3D recordings from some of the most remote and beautiful places on earth can instantly relax and quiet your mind. It truly must be experienced to be believed, which is why this app is free. Six free recordings, no ads, and a vast catalog make it easy to experience what millions of others have discovered: the amazing world of holographic sound.
Naturespace contains completely real, full-spectrum recordings of the natural world, captured with remarkable detail and fidelity. Using state-of-the-art recording equipment and techniques refined over decades of capturing natural sound in the field, we sought out the earth’s most beautiful sonic landscapes. And boy, did we find them. Vast shorelines, spectacular mountain valleys, eerie desert mountains, wild autumn forests, and hundreds of natural environments have been captured over years of expeditions. Each recording has its own unique character and suggested usage (sleep and relaxation, focus and concentration, anxiety and stress relief, meditation, or creative visualization).
Naturespace enhances focus, eliminates distractions, reduces anxiety, and promotes a state of relaxed mental clarity. It is the perfect sonic tool for help with masking distracting sounds, sleeping, studying, concentration, meditation, anxiety, PTSD, and tinnitus. The University of Kansas Medical Center recommends our audio as a top mindfulness tool for medical training.
With six infinitely-looping tracks, an elegant and simple user interface, and endless uses for Naturespace, there’s something for everyone. Connect with the natural world and get in touch with yourself. It’s that simple.

We’re back! Time to get our code all neat and tidy, primarily involving tweaks to the UI for the newest devices. Production of new tracks has begun and will be available soon. This update prepares the way.
Ratings and Reviews
I've read a lot of reviews recently complaining about the the UI. I respect personal preference, but can't help but feel like many of these complaints are a bit unfounded.
I've been using the app for about 3 years now, and have yet to find another that even remotely compares to the quality, creativity, and length of Naturespace tracks. The UI update was fine. Nothing life changing, but nothing detrimental either. The sleep timer is pretty slick once you set it up, which does indeed have several steps, but certainly isn't complicated. Many of her new features are simply visual: prettier, bigger track images and higher saturation, lightening flashes on the screen for those lightening tracks, and a folder based organization system for convenience. Perhaps it's just me, but I didn't notice a difference - at all - with the lack of earbud optimization. It sounds pretty much like it did before the update. I'm a big fan. :)
If I had one complaint, it would be of a lack of new tracks and bundles with the release of this update. Experiencing my old tracks in a new way isn't half as exciting as closing one's eyes, and losing oneself in the magic of a new track. I understand the recording process is extremely time-consuming, but I think I'd have preferred to be blown away with the new tracks and UI update TOGETHER. Some tracks are indeed more three-dimensional than others, but look luck finding an app with equal quality even on hose "flatter" tracks.
Very Realistic, High-Quality Sounds!
JANUARY 2023 UPDATE:
Nothing new to report except that I’m still enjoying this app and the great audio tracks it provides. My favorite track is titled “Serpentine.“ It’s a recording made at night in some remote, mountainous canyon where two distant trains are traveling on railroad tracks. The main sounds are the crickets that are all around you as well as the wind rustling the leaves and grass that are also all around you. Every once in a while, though, you can hear the faint sound of a train horn. Hearing that distant, forlorn, and lonely train horn always makes me stop whatever I’m doing and listen intently. It’s a really amazing experience! It’s so darn immersive and evocative! It’s difficult to describe how this particular track affects me emotionally. I am concerned, however, that the app has been abandoned by the developers. I hope that’s not the case! There hasn’t been an update in a couple of years now. The app is still functioning properly on my iPhone 11, but an update would be nice — especially if it had some new audio tracks to purchase! please don’t desert this app and let it become abandoned-ware.
The sounds in this app are incredible! Very high-quality and ultra-realistic. Very happy and satisfied with my purchase! HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Setting the bar to a new high! (March 2023 Update)
Updating my prior review. I have been using this app daily for YEARS! It has become an old friend. In this time when every new app requires a subscription (eg Portal), an app like this that allows you to buy just the sounds you want, when you want/need them is a breath of fresh air. A breath made all the more lovely as I listen to the beautiful wind swirling around me. One feature that I frequently use is the ability to mix the nature sounds with other apps. I like to play waterfalls at low volume while my meditation app (Insight Timer) counts down my meditation sessions. This allows me to block out ambient noise and enjoy my meditation more. Could also be used to have night time sounds playing all night at low volume while allowing the alarm clock app to function at full volume. I notice there haven’t been any new sounds in a while and I truly hope the developers have not abandoned the app. (Also, kudos for allowing fee downloads during covid lockdown. A company with a social conscience)
