People are just discovering ‘brown noise’ and it’s blowing their minds.

The noise is seemingly taking TikTok by storm, and it’s not just a passing fad.

The ADHD community on the platform has discovered its incredible calming effects, and videos showcasing its benefits are spreading like wildfire.

Hear an example of the noise in the video below…

One user’s video is captioned: “Is this how most people’s brains feel all the time?!”

It then shows her listening to the low, soothing roar of brown noise.

She declares: “Brown noise is so much better than white noise.

“My brain is quiet for the first time ever.”

The comments on her video echo her sentiment, with many users expressing their newfound love for the noise and its impact on their mental well-being.

But wait, what exactly is it, and how is it different from other types of noise like white noise or pink noise?

It is one of the various colours of noise, alongside white, pink, and blue noise.

While it may not be named after the colour, brown noise is called so because of its similarity to the low, deep sound of a powerful waterfall or a roaring river.

The science behind it is fascinating.

Unlike white noise, which has a consistent spectral density across all frequencies, brown noise’s spectral density decreases significantly as its frequency increases.

It’s almost as if it’s tailor-made to soothe the mind, creating a calming effect that many users find beneficial.

Its name is attributed to botanist Robert Brown, who made significant discoveries related to Brownian motion in the 1800s.

The term ‘Brownian noise’ stems from the fact that the sound signal of brown noise changes randomly from one moment to the next.

The TikTok videos showcasing the wonders of the noise have sparked a wave of agreement among users.

Many commented on how they’ve always found comfort in the sound of fans and air conditioning, which share similarities with the soothing noise.

In another revealing TikTok video, a user shares their experience with brown noise, claiming it cured their ADHD.

They wrote: “If you’re wondering, brown noise … cured my ADHD. Why? I don’t know.

“What I do know is that anytime I put it on I’m sucked into a vortex of hyper-focus and the world just makes sense.

“Have I cracked the code? Maybe.”
