Black noise is a type of noise where the dominant energy level is zero throughout all frequencies, with occasional sudden rises; it is also defined as silence. Contrary to general consideration, sound and silence are not each other's opposite, but they are mutually inclusive.
What Is Pink Noise? Pink noise is a sound that contains a random assortment of all the audible frequencies, with more power in the lower frequencies1. Specifically, pink noise contains the same overall intensity in each octave2, but the volume of individual pitches decreases by 3 decibels3 with each higher octave.
According to research, certain sounds are generally more satisfying than others, with most people preferring a relatively small number of specific sounds – among the top ten favourites are a crackling log fire, rain pattering against the window, an infant laughing, birds chirping, autumn leaves crunching beneath your ...
The loudest sound in recorded history came from the volcanic eruption on the Indonesian island Krakatoa at 10.02 a.m. on August 27, 1883. The explosion caused two thirds of the island to collapse and formed tsunami waves as high as 46 m (151 ft) rocking ships as far away as South Africa.

SoundOn is TikTok's own promotion and music distribution platform, enabling artists to grow their fanbases, harness their creative voice and get their music heard worldwide. The platform allows artists to upload their music directly to TikTok and begin earning royalties, when that music is used.
The highest safe exposure level for adults is 85 decibels over eight hours. Some researchers claim that white noise can lead to children developing auditory processing disorders. This is because the brain quickly adapts to the sound and stops acknowledging it as something worth listening to.
But pink noise, in which lower frequency sounds are more powerful—like the rush of a waterfall or pounding rain—may boost your brain, according to a study published in 2017 in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.
The release of endorphins is also thought to be one of the reasons music is so emotionally powerful. Endorphins are hormones that are released by the brain in response to pain or stress. They are responsible for the “runner's high” that people experience and they can also be released when listening to music.
You might have heard them called by other names – brain worms, stuck song syndrome, cognitive itch, or as the scientific community calls it, involuntary musical imagery, or INMI. An overwhelming 98% of people experience earworms, and 90% of people experience at least one earworm per week.
A 2021 study found that white noise significantly improved sleep for people who experience difficulty sleeping due to high levels of environmental noise. It concluded that the application of white noise may be an effective tool in helping to improve sleep in metropolitan areas.
Pink noise has potential as a sleep aid. In a small 2012 study in the Journal of Theoretical Biology , researchers found that steady pink noise reduces brain waves, which increases stable sleep. A 2017 study in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience also found a positive link between pink noise and deep sleep.
We call it white noise because it has basically equal power for all frequencies of audible sound—just like white light has equal power for all frequencies of visible light. And just as we call different frequencies of light different colors, we call different mixes of sound frequencies different colors of noise.
