Noise to fall asleep? This may seem paradoxical. However, certain sounds that are similar to noise can help you relax and, why not, throw yourself into a restful sleep. These noises, called whites, are signals that consist of all the audible frequencies, where each frequency has the same energy. As Wikipedia specifies, white noise (or white noise) “denotes, without mathematical stringency, an acute variation of respiration”. You know, the famous noise that we heard at the end of the programs when a television showed “snow”.

white noise generated by Audacity

Spectrum of white noise generated by Audacity.

In analogy with white light, which corresponds to the equivalent overlay of the different wavelengths visible to the eye, white noise is the result of the overlay of all the audible frequencies emitted at an equivalent power. This set of sounds of the same intensity produces a single uniform sound. This white noise, which can ultimately seem unpleasant (it is, to say the least, a noise … noisy) can saturate your auditory receptors and thus reduce your perception of ambient noise. Less disturbed, it would then be possible to fall asleep more easily. We use the conditional here, because if there are several scientific studies, it is difficult to find a consensus on the benefit of white noise during sleep and the quality of sleep. Either way, the internet is filled with hour-long videos of spinning dishwashers, rain, wind or waves that have been viewed – and above all listened to – millions of times.

iPhone, generator for white noise

Since version 15, Apple’s iOS mobile operating system has offered an option to stream white noise. To do this, go to Settings> Accessibility> Audio / Visual> Background Sounds.

generate white noise with iPhone and iOS 15

You get to the background sound settings in a few steps.

You will then be taken to the white noise setting screen. In the audio section, you can choose between different sounds. From noise balance to sea passing rivers and dark noise, you are free to choose the one that suits you.

If this technique works for you, and to save you a lot of tampering with turning on the background sound, you can define the Accessibility Hotkey with this feature. When enabled (Settings> Accessibility> Shortcut Accessibility), pressing the button on the right side of the iPhone three times will be enough to start spreading the noise.

Rain, sea or dark noise: It is up to you to choose the atmosphere you want to fall asleep with.
