Free Relaxing Sounds Online

Bookmark and Share

soothing sounds online free relaxing sounds musicLiving in a big city such as I do here in Osaka I am always faced with the possibility of some form of construction going on not too far away from my apartment. I don't possess any sound canceling headphones so for some time now I've taken advantage of a few websites which offer free relaxing sounds online to block out the noise from my immediate environment. All of these sites offer sounds which are so relaxing.

These include sites that generate relaxing sounds relating to sleep sounds, sounds of the ocea
n and relaxing beaches, thunderstorm sounds online, sounds of nature, soothing sounds, rain forest sounds and sounds to do with sleep and relaxation and some sound machine online sites.

I especially like white and brown noise generators when I'm reading and the neighbors are being a little too noisy or a building across the street is being knocked down. You can also record these sounds and put them on an mp3 player so you have relaxing sound effect with you for when you travel. So I thought it might be nice to group some of my favorite ones and share them here on the psyamb site.


1. Sound Sleeping
Sound sleeping is a cool little sleep sounds online generator that allows you to create a kind of trance inducing tribal rhythm with sounds including drums, crickets, thunder, wind chimes, ocean sounds, birds and so on. One of my favorite free relaxing sounds sites.
Listen now.

2. Simply Noise
Simply Noise is the best noise generator I've come across so far. The user interface is clean and simple. The site provides white noise, brown noise and pick noise creation tools to help you block out noise in your environment. When a mate put me onto this site I was quite surprised at how well it was able to block out the sound of the construction going on a few doors down from me. When it comes to online relaxing sounds this is one of the best. Highly recommended for those of you who are having trouble sleeping.

3. White Noise 24/7
This site has a number of great relaxing sounds to listen to including rivers, sounds of the ocean and rain sounds. It also has a number of mechanical sounds which are also surprisingly soothing including washing machines, ventilators a dishwasher and a shower ! Great stuff. A good thing about this site is that a number of the sounds can be downloaded for play later on.
Listen now.

4. Rainy Mood
This is a great site that simply has one huge button that continuously plays the sound of a thunderstorm. Simple and brilliant. Possibly my all time favorite online relaxing sounds site.
Listen now.

5. My Dream Cloud
This one is a work in progress so keep an eye on this one. I really like the interface - very slick and cool. With a few more sound options this should be a big hit. One thing it does have over the other sound sites is the ability to program an alarm - very handy in-case the soothing sounds send you off to sleep. Has excellent relaxing water sounds.

6. Nature Sounds
Just found this one recently. Its really well presented with a mixture of four tracks that you can select from. Each track can comprise of natures sounds such as rivers,oceans and rain sounds or you can choose from various animal sounds. That's not all however as you can also select things like traditional Tibetan instruments and even the sound of Darth Vader's breath ! Although last time I tried to use Darth Vader's breath it didn't load. Maybe Mr Lucas and Co. didn't like the idea the idea of relaxing Vader and came down hard on the site ?

7. Ambient Mixer
Here is a new relaxing sounds one I found a while back. Now this one is really cool - you can choose a theme ( eg grassland, summer forest, small creek and much more) and mix in other sounds to create a unique mood just for you. Personally I love the sounds of being on a ship in the ocean one. The themes are all user driven by a dedicated group of users and fans. Once you load a theme you can adjust sound levels or add new sounds and save the setting for the next time you visit. Fantastic ! Some great free rain sounds for sleeping.

Well that's about all I can remember at the moment. If anyone out there has some other good links for online nature sounds, relaxation sounds , sleep sounds etc drop me an email or comment here and I'll add them to the list above. Happy sleeping.

Thanks for reviewing these - very helpful. If you have an Android phone also check out the Relax and Sleep app which does the same sort of thing. I'm not associated with Relax and Sleep.
