Michal Moravec Away with noisy neighbours. I can now work distraction-free. Quite expensive at 12 USD, but this specialy crafted masking noise is worth it.

Shirayuki Hime I work in a noisy office. I have sound isolation headphones, but even with that noises break through when music gets to quiet sections. This recording is exactly what it says. I can't hear anything else to distract me, but I don't have to play it very loud. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a way to remove distractions.

Do you have trouble sleeping? Well, forget the meds and try this simple and natural solution to help you rest.

Turn your smartphone into a relaxing sleep machine. Just put "Useful Masking Noise" on your phone and set it to repeat. A little goes a long way!

65 minutes of specially-created complex noise - noise you can't get anywhere else - which can be used to mask unwanted sounds.

Great for sleeping, studying, tuning out annoying neighbors, crying babies or covering up other unwanted sounds.

But, it's only noise, right? No, this is a custom product created by a professional audio engineer, designed to cover up irritating and distracting noises.

It sounds like a cross between a closeup waterfall hitting cool rocks, old analog television static, with a gentle touch of industrial fan and a faint hint of radio crackle. There's no looping or repeating either.

"Useful Masking Noise" is simple to use and effective at covering up irritating sounds.
