• "It is one of the best apps I have used to keep me calm and to go to sleep" - V lovelyu -

• "Lull me into relaxing! -Downloaded last night and easily selected sounds to make a custom mix of favorites: chimes, rain and a really cool "celestial" sound. The choices are many and are super good quality. I've had a hard time finding an app of sounds that were good and not so cliche." - ElizGoetz

• "Beautiful app -Not only are the sounds fabulous, the photos are incredible. Easy to use, elegant interface. Great app!" - WebbyHess19

Sleep deeply every night, and wake up feeling fresh and energized.

Sleep Sounds HQ gives you immediate access to a massive catalog of high-quality, naturally recorded sounds. Much better than synthetic sounds and short repetitive loops, these are real-world sounds with all the richness, texture, and nuance of the natural environment.

Imagine falling asleep to soft rain on a Bali rice terrace, a Himalayan stream, Red Sea waves, South African crickets, a warm crackling campfire, or enchanting wind chimes. 

Or … if you prefer the steady hum of 'white noise’, fall asleep to a steady blizzard, Swiss waterfall, the drone of a Dutch highway, a working flour mill, dishwashers and spinning washing machines, or pure white, pink, and brown noise.

You will fall asleep fast and wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

What's more, Sleep Sounds HQ can be used anytime you need to block out the outside world:
• Increase your ability to focus and be creative at work by removing distractions.
• Soothe your baby or small children and create a peaceful sanctuary for you and your family.
• Transform your hotel room into a familiar sleep oasis by blocking out noisy neighbors, ice machines, and elevator doors.
• Create a calm and tranquil environment for meditation and yoga.

With over 600 high-quality audio tracks to choose from, fine-tune a collection of sounds to your individual taste.

And if that isn't enough, you can create your own personalized mixes for sleep, work, travel, nap time, or meditation, blending up to 6 sounds at a time.

Improve your sleep, your health, and your sense of well-being starting tonight.

Use It Nightly - There Is A New-ish Bug

I love the app and I use it nightly it definitely helps. Lately I would say maybe since the last iOS upgrade maybe I've had an issue of Setting my time and everything being fine with the app and pressing play and it acts like it's playing but there's actually no sound. And I've checked to make sure my phone wasn't muted and all that good stuff and it's not. Once this happens basically the only way I can get the app to play properly is to restart my phone. So that's a glitch I'd like to see fixed. In reference to the Developer's response: I said in my review that I did all that. The review still stands it's a glitch that needs to be looked into. The app hasn't been updated in a while, maybe just update it.

Developer Response ,

Glad you love the app and use it nightly. That shouldn’t be happening. Please restart your phone, run only this app and check Bluetooth and headphone connections, and ringer-alert volume settings. If that doesn’t help please delete and re-download the app. Please connect with us in the app via “Questions or Feedback”, we’d be glad to help further.

Sweet Dreams

Love this app! Can download sounds into App Library, and combine up to six different sounds to create personalized mixes. What’s even sweeter is that I can control the volumes of all sounds in the mix. That way I can, for example, have the wind louder and the crickets toned down, making for a more effective sleep inducer. Mixes have me drifting off in no time. In the past, I’ve woken up in early morning to use bathroom and found it difficult to fall back asleep, but with Sleep Sounds mixes I’ve created, I’m back to Dreamland. App also allows me to set duration of time that mix will play and then automatically stop. I usually set it for 30 minutes, but I’m lucky to conk out in minutes. Great app at a good price!

If I could I would give this app a ten.

This app is like a dream come true for me! I've got so many different apps with sounds that I enjoy but it's a pain to try to remember which sounds are in whitch app. With this one you have over 600 sounds in one place! If you can't find several you love among all of these I would be very surprised. The timer works well. Some don't work at all in other apps. If you are having one of those nights where you just can't sleep then you can just listen to all of these sounds and relax while you snack on ear candy. As you listen you may even remember some long forgotten memories from long ago. Come on! Give it a try! You won't be sorry. Listen with or without headphones! Just have FUN!
