Yeah, you wish you heard the sound of the waves

Ever been stuck in the draining silence of the Rock stacks where you’d much rather hear the peaceful lull of beach waves? Prefer to listen to the sounds of creeks or forest birds instead of your roommate’s snoring every night?

Nature Sounds let’s you compose your own ambient melody, be it for reading, sleeping, or meditating, for free. Some of our favorite sounds: cat purr, fireplace, tibetan bowl…and “brown” noise? What it’s a sound of and why it’s called “brown” remains a mystery.
