Sleep's an important function of life, so why not treat it that way? Pink noise can help you sleep, even better than white noise, and which of our air purifiers are pink noise generators.
“White” noise is created by combining high and low frequencies of sound together. It is similar to the sound of TV static. White noise is random and contains equal amounts of high tones and low tones. White noise is not a high pitched squeal, like nails on a chalkboard, nor is it soothing to listen to, like a cat purring.
“Pink” noise is less random. The low sound tones are much more powerful, while the high and more irritating tones are reduced.
Pink noise is sometimes compared to your heartbeat. It's more steady and goes at an equal pace. Pink noise is the most common noise found in nature.
Pink and white noise are named after the color spectrum. Just like the color white is made up of multiple colors, white noise is a blend of multiple frequencies that form one unique sound.
Similarly, shades of red are found in the lower end of the color spectrum, which is where the term "pink" noise came from. The lower and "slower" wavelengths of light combine to make red/pink light and the lower and more soothing sound tones make up pink noise.
White noise is used to cover other sounds by essentially overwhelming them. For example, if you are in a house with a lot of people who are making too much noise, you might turn on a machine, such as a fan, to block out the outside noise.
On the other hand, pink noise blends into the background and provides a steady tempo to sleep to. In fact, one study found that participants slept up to 25 percent better with pink noise than white noise. Pink noise doesn't simply cover other noises, so much as masking them, bringing down the impact of noises that might otherwise disrupt normal sleep.
The Alen BreatheSmart HEPA and the Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 air purifiers both produce pink noise. These machines can help improve sleep quality as well as clear allergens, dust, odors and chemicals in the air.
