Editor: As someone who has been known to use noise-canceling headphones with only the sound-canceling feature on without music, I can certainly understand the desire for peace and quiet in the city or in a busy communal space. Here are a couple of apps available for iOS and Android devices designed specifically for relaxation:
often cite Ambiance as their go-to audio relaxation app (or in the developer's words, an "environment enhancer"). The $2.99 app includes 3,500 sounds for download and mixing for customized effect. There's also a desktop preview version available here for both Mac and PC users.
If you love the pitter-patter and dramatic rumble of a storm, Thunderspace simulates the experience in stereoscopic 3D audio. Two thunderstorms are included in seamless loop format with a .99 cents purchase, with six additional simulated storms available as in-app purchase options.
Leave any further suggestions for Melissa in the comments - thanks!
