Program Library

WHITE NOISE by Medcalm

Noise color is determined by the frequencies present. Simply put, white noise is comprised of random and equal amounts of frequencies from the entire sound spectrum. This is why it is so effective at masking just about every external sound. The reason that this works is simple. Audiology research has discovered that the human ear can only process a given number of sound frequencies at once. White noise machines create a sound pattern utilizing all available frequencies. This causes other noises to fade into the background and become less noticeable, preventing them from disturbing your sleep. Common benefits of white noise include: Sound masking and cancellation, Improved concentration, Sleep promotion.

PINK NOISE by Medcalm

Some listeners find white noise to be harsh or tinny. One popular alternative is pink noise, which also includes noise from the entire spectrum but emphasizes specific, lower frequencies to create a deeper, gentler sound. Some users compare pink noise to rushing water, heavy rain or strong wind through leaves. This subdued, fuller sound offers many of the same benefits as white noise, such as eliminating background sounds, but it’s more relaxing for many listeners. It’s been found in heart beat rhythms, neural activity, and even DNA sequences. If this is noise found in your mind and body, then maybe it’s just what the doctor ordered. Common benefits of pink noise include: Improved focus, Alleviated headaches, Soothed babies and young children, Better sleep.
