Now consider being in a room with thousands of people all talking at once, it is then impossible for your brain to focus on just one voice in the crowd. Your brain will hear a wave of sound.

With a white noise machine it works on this principle except it has every sound at all frequencies and it is more like the sound of radio static.

White noise machines are not annoying sounds they actually absorb all the sounds and replace what your brain hears with a soothing calming sound such as the sound of a motor of a fan, a waterfall, or the soft hum of an air-conditioner.
