What Does Pink Noise Mean?

Pink noise is a sound played for relaxation.

Like brown noise and white noise, pink noise refers to sounds that appear constant to the human ear. These type of noises, or sonic hues, contain minimal sound variations (i.e., changes in tone and speed) compared with sounds such as speech, singing or music.

With pink noise, the focus is on deeper sounds and lower sound waves, resulting in a lower pitch than white noise, but not quite as low as brown noise. Pink noise sounds like steady rain, or waves on a beach.

Some people find pink noise is more helpful than white noise in dealing with tinnitus or sleeplessness, and is especially good at blocking background noise and helping with concentration.
