Noise can make it very hard to concentrate, and for many students at school and college there is no quiet place to work in their home. This simple, free app delivers 45 minutes of scientifically designed productivity-boosting sound that can mask ambient noise, help focus, improve cognition and reduce fatigue. It is intended to be played through headphones at modest volume – just loud enough to mask the background sound, particularly any conversation. After 45 minutes a quick break from working is always a good idea – hence the length of the soundscape. It can be set to repeat if you prefer.

This app is made by leading sound consultants The Sound Agency, with personal creative direction by their chairman Julian Treasure, whose five TED talks on sound have been seen by over 50 million people. The app is free thanks to sponsorship from Ecophon, one of the world’s leading acoustics specialists.

Great app

Listen to this all the time when I study, the soundscape does actually help me focus believe it or not, and the fact it's 45 minutes in length helps me time manage much better than I did before! I would recommend this to all students and people who have trouble maintaining concentration. My only issue with the app is the fact there's only one soundscape and this loses it's affect if you were to say do 4 hours study in one day listening to this app. But other then that it's great!

Excellent app

Helps me so much when I'm working, it's great at stopping your mind from wandering, yet doesn't distract you from the work you're supposed to be doing. Would definitely recommend it

Issues with airpods

Nice sounds and I think it did help me concentrate but there are issues with the air pods where it doesn’t stop the playback when you take them out like it does with music or radio apps. Bit embarrassing when you are in an open plan office!
