Low Frequency White Noise

Both white and pink noise are considered broadband noises. Both of them are made of all frequencies that are audible to humans, so all frequencies anywhere between 20 and 20000 hertz. But the way their signal power is distributed among all frequencies radically differs, and you can see that using a power analyzer or just by looking at the simple sound spectrum graphs provided below.

Therefore, at lower frequencies, the octave bands are narrower, and at higher frequencies, the octave bands are wider. To help you grasp this concept better, the table below shows the typical octave bands used in acoustics and the frequency range contained in each band. The numbers make it very clear: the 8000 hz octave band regroups a lot more frequencies than the 63 Hz octave band.

Now remember earlier in figure 1 how the white noise spectrum looked like a flat straight line when viewed in narrow bands on a linear scale? Based on what you know about pink noise, and how its energy distribution differs from white noise, how would you expect its spectrum to look like when viewed in narrow bands instead of third-octaves?

Keeping in mind what you know about octaves and how they work: if white noise has equal power per hertz throughout all frequencies and shows a positive slope when viewed in octave mode, then pink noise, which has equal power per octave throughout all frequencies, will logically show a negative slope when viewed in narrow bands, right? And there you go:

Graphically speaking, sound masking is practically the total opposite of white noise. Indeed, as we go from lower to higher frequencies, the white noise signal gains 3 decibels per octave while the typical sound masking signal loses 3 decibels per octave. Furthermore, unlike white noise, sound masking is everything but a straight, rather bumpy slope. In the figure below, notice how the sound masking spectrum gently curves down, almost without any noticeable increment?

We at Yogasleep have a confession to make. The Dohm is not actually a white noise machine. What?! Yes, it's true. The Yogasleep Dohm produces, not white noise, but pink noise. Well, you might be wondering, what's the difference? We're glad you asked.

White noise refers to a type of sound that's an equal intensity across all frequencies audible by the human ear; similar to white light, which contains all visible light at equal intensity. White noise is produced by randomly generating noise across the entire sound spectrum, and it ends up sounding like radio static, which some people enjoy as background noise, while others find it irritating.

This is the major difference between pink and white noise. In white noise, the power is constant, but in pink noise, as the numbers get bigger, the difference in power becomes smaller, so the higher-pitched sounds are softer.

Because the lower frequencies are louder than the higher frequencies in pink noise, it sounds less abrasive and leads to a better night's sleep. Less like radio static, and more like leaves rustling.

Pink noise has been found by many studies to be the most soothing background sound. Not only that, but studies have also shown that going to sleep listening to pink noise from a sound machine helps improve memory the next day and could have long-lasting positive effects on memory and concentration.

It can be seemingly hard to find readily available sources of pink noise. Luckily, the Yogasleep Go, Yogasleep Nod, and Yogasleep Soundscene provide pink noise, and the Yogasleep Duet and Yogasleep Dreamcenter offer multiple pink noise options.

Often, other noise colors are lumped under the "white noise" umbrella, because it is a common term people understand, but the distinctions are important. Understanding what noise colors are helps you understand what color of noise is best for you.

It is also used to help people who suffer with tinnitus and people who have trouble sleeping. That is because our brain can determine a single source frequency, but it becomes difficult to hear multiple.

Coming back to our white noise, it sounds very similar to what you hear when you see a snow screen on the TV. Noise on TV appears in case of no transmission signal coming through the antenna receiver.

Why exactly is it pink? Because pink noise spectrum emphasizes the lower frequency with warmer colors like red (brownian noise). So relative to the white noise, pink noise gets a red glow and becomes pink.

It is mainly utilized by scientists to test flat frequency responses, but it can also serve as a tool to diminish low frequency background noises. In fact, according to a study conducted by Neuron journal showed that people actually fall into deep sleep better with pink noise stimulation.

Violet has a lot of power in high frequencies which is why it will be a lot more annoying to listen for a long time. However, it can still be helpful with diminishing high frequency background noises and specific cases of tinnitus or hearing loss.

This noise is more intense for high and low frequencies, and less intense for middle-range frequencies (audible to human ear) which is what gives you the feel that it sounds the same for all frequencies.

y = lowpass(xt,fpass) lowpass-filters the data in timetable xt using a filter with a passband frequency of fpass hertz. The function independently filters all variables in the timetable and all columns inside each variable.

Most nonideal filters also attenuate the input signal across the passband. The maximum value of this frequency-dependent attenuation is called the passband ripple. Every filter used by lowpass has a passband ripple of 0.1 dB.

A person can determine the color of noise by the energy of the sound signal, with the color referring to how the signal distributes energy over various frequencies. Pink and white noise both encompass all audible frequencies but differ in how they distribute energy across these frequencies.

Some researchers believe that pink and white noise might offer potential benefits, including better sleep and improved productivity. However, more research is necessary to investigate the effects of these colors of noise and how people can use them.

Sonic hues, also known as the noise spectrum or colors of noise, describes the practice of naming different noises after colors. The color of the noise relates to the power spectrum of a noise signal, or the frequencies of the noise.

The practice of naming noises after colors originated with white noise. Researchers chose this system to classify noise as it mirrors how they measure light on the electromagnetic spectrum. For example, just as white light includes all visible light, white noise includes all audible frequencies.

Pink noise is similar to white noise in that it is also a broadband noise, containing all frequencies between 20 Hz and 20,000 Hz. However, pink noise is deeper than white noise due to a reduction in power at higher frequencies and an increase in power at lower frequencies.

A similar 2020 study found that pink noise helped participants fall asleep and achieve deep sleep faster. A small 2020 study indicates that pink noise may improve work efficiency, continuous performance, and working memory.

For example, a person may use a white or pink noise machine to produce a steady background noise in the bedroom. Although there is a scarcity of research, leading theories suggest that these colors of noise may aid sleep by providing a calming environment, forming part of a bedtime routine, or masking loud and distracting noises. These machines are available commercially.

A person can also download white and pink noise apps on their mobile phone. Similar to machines, these apps are capable of playing white or pink noise, which a person can use to try to improve their sleep. People can search for these apps via the application store on their phone.

Both white noise and pink noise encompass all frequencies of noise that are audible to the human ear. However, white noise contains all frequencies with equal distribution, whereas pink noise has more power at lower frequencies and less at higher frequencies, making it deeper.

Research indicates that both white noise and pink noise may have beneficial effects on sleep. Some evidence also suggests that white noise may be helpful for children with ADHD, while pink noise may boost working memory and recall. However, more research is still necessary to determine the effects and uses of these noises.

The White Noise Lite app also offers the full gamut of colored sounds, including white, gray, brown, pink, blue, and violet, so you can choose the frequency that you find most relaxing. I found the brown noise to be the most relaxing, thanks to its lower tones.

Magnetoresistive spin-valve sensors based on the giant-magnetoresisitive (GMR) and tunneling-magnetoresisitive (TMR) effect with a flux-closed vortex-state free-layer design are compared by means of sensitivity and low-frequency noise. The vortex-state free layer allows high saturation fields up to 80 mT with negligible hysteresis, making it attractive for applications with a high dynamic range. The measured GMR devices comprise pink noise lower by a factor of 300 and better linearity in resistance but are less sensitive to external magnetic fields than TMR sensors. The results show comparable detectivity at low frequencies of about 2μT/Hz for 1-μm-diameter devices and 0.8μT/Hz for 2-μm-diameter devices at 1 Hz with ten active elements connected in series. The performance of the TMR minimum detectable field at frequencies in the white-noise limit is better by a factor of about 20 than that of the GMR devices.

Noise in GMR sensors with diameters of 1 and 2 μm at different bias currents. The measurement results (dots) are fitted (lines) according to Eq. (3) with the adjustable parameter α. The noise floor refers to the ultralow-noise amplifier and setup noise measured with shorted inputs and is added to the fit function.

TMR ratio of 1 and 2-μm disks [blue axis, crosses; see Eq. (5)] with the noise parameter α (red axis, dots) extracted from the measurements in Fig. 3. TMR ratio and α decrease with increasing bias voltage. At low voltages α(D=2μm) is roughly twice α(D=1μm). 041b061a72
