Considering this, what does white noise do to you?
White noise creates a masking effect, blocking out those sudden changes that frustrate light sleepers, or people trying to fall asleep. "The simple version is that hearing still works while you're asleep," says Seth S. Horowitz, a neuroscientist and author of The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind.
Furthermore, is white noise harmful? The answer again, is YES. White noise machines benefit a baby by promoting sleep. However, it's important to keep noise at a safe level for a baby and adults. If white noise machines produce sound above safe decibel levels, then they can be harmful.
Keeping this in consideration, what is an example of white noise?
Streams, the wind in the tress, rain, vehicles, machinery, footsteps on gravel or leaves, fire and even sounds heard by babies in the womb are a few examples of noise in our environment. I bet you can think of more examples.
Is Rain white noise?
Our white rain sound recording is totally natural: no synthetic white noise has been superimposed here. Yet, it sounds close to white noise. Not all rain sounds are white though, mostly because of the environment in which the rain falls alters the color of the sound too.
