Ambient sleep sounds are now specifically designed and engineered to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

Ambient Sleep Sounds Playlist

Ambient sound, by definition, is the background noise that is present at any given location. Real-world examples include rain, traffic, crickets, birds, muffled voices, air-conditioning hums, and the sound of a distant train. Many people get used to the ambient sounds in their environment and they become a welcome background noise mix that the human brain expects to hear during sleep.

Recent technological advancements have given us drastically more sophisticated options when it comes to creating the perfect soundscape for drifting off. Specially curated playlists and sleep albums have become an accessible solution for many seeking better quality rest. This series of five sleep-promoting playlists were created by Endel, a sound technology that generates real-time personalized soundscapes to enhance sleep, relaxation, and focus. Endel’s core algorithm is based on circadian rhythms, pentatonic scale, and sound masking. These playlists, created by Berlin-based team of artists, developers, and scientists, feature scientifically proven and expertly crafted sleep sounds to help you enjoy the benefits of restorative slumber.

Multiple scientific studies indicate that certain types of sounds have the power to help lull us into a deep sleep. Sounds inspired by nature, devoid of instrumentation or human vocals, have been shown to be equally or even more effective than traditionally composed music melodies.  The tracks featured on these five playlists were produced with specifically pentatonic scale in mind – the musical scale with five notes per octave. The use of the pentatonic scale and pure intonation results in simple, pleasant sounds that are physiologically natural.  When pentatonic melodies and pure intonation are joined, the most relaxing ambient combinations possible are created as a result. Enjoy higher-quality sleep by utilizing these playlists which represent the perfect balance between technology, engineering, and the influence of nature.
