So “white noise” is a blanket of sound created from all sound spectrums. It ranges from low frequencies to those that are emitted in the highest frequencies. With this combination, a torrent of soft sounds is generated, such as a drizzle or a gentle stream, which are “relaxing” to the ear. Now, the “brown noise” unlike white, emphasizes the deepest notes of the sound spectrum. High frequencies are eliminated and the experience is deeper and calmer. Heavy rains, kingdoms and rushing rivers are associated with this type of sound.
