Well I’ve taken a break from traveling to the depths of the Internet to take a look at the few positive affects the Internet has had. No Chat Roulette is not a good thing, unless you consider watching men do the deed then I suppose it would be a good thing. Today I take a look at SimplyNoise.com. First we must understand what white noise is, (and not the crappy movie starting Michael Keaton) take it away HowStuffWorks: “white noise is a combination of all of the different frequencies of sound. You can think of white noise as 20,000 tones all playing at the same time.” You can also imagine two people having a conversation, your hearing is able to distinguish the two separate voices. If those two people are joined by a 1,000 of their closest friends your hearing can no longer tell who is who and it ends up sounding like white noise!
Over at SimplyNoise.com you can chose the volume level of constant stream of white noise you wish to listen to, plug in some headphones and be on your way to chillaxing (don’t say that). SimplyNoise’s instructions are a bit more corny telling you to “slide the volume orb…find your comfort zone…enjoy auditory Zen.” SimplyNoise claims on their website white noise can aid sleep, increase focus, enhance privacy, block distractions, mask tinnitus (ringing in your ears thanks Wikipedia), melt away stress, soothe migraines, pacify children and pets and (the most important) configure audio equipment.
For those not into white noise SimplyNoise also offers a selection of red noise, brown noise, and tucked into the “download audio files” section a 60 minute recording of a thunder storm!
I sampled the white noise with the “volume orb” set to 10 and I was hooked. I eliminated distractions while increasing my focus of enhancing privacy, masked my tinnitus, melted away my stress, soothed my migraine, pacified my pets, and configured my audio equipment! All of that aside I was able to concentrate more deeply while writing a paper; and it cured my eye strain headache. I found SimplyNoise to be such a positive experience I decided to share it all with you!
If you’re tired of background noise distracting your work, or have headaches you’re tired of overmedicating give SimplyNoise.com a try, it can only help!
