Discover the secret to better sleep with Mudita’s guide on color noises. 

Ah, sleep! That elusive state of bliss we all crave, however, some of us often struggle to achieve. I’m sure many of us have at some point been a victim of the vicious cycle of sleepless nights, ceaselessly tossing and turning, staring blankly into the oblivion of the bedroom ceiling, punctuated only by the relentless clicking of the wall clock? However, what if we told you that the secret to a good night's sleep might just be a sound away? No, I'm not talking about lullabies or the gentle hum of a fan. I'm talking about color noises. [1]


Let's embark on this journey together!

The Symphony of Sleep: An Introduction to Color Noises

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let's clear up what color noises are. These are specific types of sound frequencies which can help mask external noises, making it easier for you to drift off into dreamland. The most popular ones are white, pink, brown, and blue noise. Each has its unique characteristics and benefits, which we'll explore in detail.[2] 

White Noise: The Classic Lullaby for the Insomniac

White noise is the granddaddy of sleep sounds. It encompasses all frequencies that a human ear can hear, from 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz. Imagine the static you hear when you accidentally tune your TV to an unused channel—that's white noise for you! A 2017 study found that adults fell asleep 38% faster while listening to white noise. White noise can even help you stay asleep.  Additionally,  studies have found that listening to white noise helped newborn babies fall asleep faster.[3][4]  

Best for: Those struggling with insomnia or ADHD. The consistent sound of white noise creates a masking effect that can help you fall asleep faster.

Pink Noise: The New Darling of the Sleep World

Move over, white noise; pink noise is here to steal the spotlight! Research suggests that pink noise can increase deep sleep and improve memory. It's a mix of high and low frequencies, resembling the sound of falling rain or gentle ocean waves. [5][6]

Best for: Light sleepers. Pink noise can help drown out distracting noises like footsteps or revving engines, especially if you live in a busy city, a bustling apartment complex, or another high noise environment. 

Brown Noise: The Deep Ocean of Sleep Sounds

Brown noise is like pink noise, but on steroids. It's packed with even more bass tones and low-frequency energy. Imagine the sound of a hard ocean surf during a storm—that's brown noise.

Best for: People who live in noisy environments or have trouble clearing their minds at night. Brown noise can help you feel cocooned in a sound blanket, away from the chaos of the world.[7]

Blue Noise: The High-Pitched Maestro

Blue noise is the odd one out, with its energy concentrated at the high-frequency end, it's great for masking outside noises, but can be harsh at loud volumes. A research featured in Frontiers in Physiology, a leading journal in the field of physiology, revealed that individuals subjected to blue noise while sleeping experienced enhanced sleep quality and felt less fatigued the next day. It is thought that blue noise has a soothing impact on the brain, thereby facilitating relaxation and contributing to better sleep.[8]

Best for: Those who have difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds. Blue noise can be a lifesaver if you're not sensitive to its frequency range.

The Great Debate: Which Color Noise is the Best?

The truth is, there's no one-size-fits-all answer. No scientific study has definitively proven which color noise is the best for sleep. Your best bet? Experiment with different types to see which one works for you.
