White noise is believed to help balance hearing by effectively reprogramming the way we experience sounds. Given that there are so many noises around us, it’s understandable how our hearing can easily get muddled. Which is where white noise comes in.
The following describes the process of how white noise helps improve overall hearing quality:
- As white noise is effectively a signal containing equal frequencies, this creates something of a sonic blur
- With the different frequencies inseparable, auditory nerves are less excitable
- Your auditory nerves unstimulated, you should begin to find other noises clearer and easier to perceive
Sufferers of tinnitus
sometimes use white noise to accustom themselves to the constant ringing in their ears. If you feel like this is something you could benefit from, speak to your GP or a hearing specialist for further information and advice.
