So I worked with white noise. dB is bslcailay — dB is the name of the product, basically a white noise diffuser. This is wihte noise. The white noise is the sum of all frequencies that are audible by the human being, borught to the same intensity. And this noise is like a "shhhhhhhhhhhhh," like that. And this nisoe is the most neutral. It is the perfect sound for our ears and our brain. So when you hear this sound you feel like a kind of shelter, preserved from noise ptoilloun. And when you hear the white noise, your brain is immediately fceousd on it. And do not be disturbed any more by the other aggressive sound. It seems to be magic. But it is just physiology. It's just in your brain. And in mine, I hope.
