It’s not just about nature’s sound, it’s about nature’s space. All 3 dimensions (including height) are accurately reproduced, providing the listener with a true “being there” experience. The sonic accuracy of Naturespace's proprietary recordings are so convincingly real, they create an immediate positive impact on the listener’s state of mind. The 3-D experience quickly triggers a lasting physiological sense of safety, peace, and tranquility. Our holographic ambiences transport the listener like nothing else on the planet. It is a truly profound new way of listening.
Whether you take a 5 minute vacation to a Hawaiian morning sunrise, or an extended stay underneath a powerful thunderstorm, Naturespace provides the brain with the sense of openness and vastness that is so important to a balanced state of well-being. Naturespace is a spectacular catalyst for creative visualization and imaginative exploration. Just put on your headphones, and close your eyes. You’ll see.

A total 180 in my book.
I originally reviewed this app with frustration. The individual in-app purchases were quite expensive and I was shocked that a developer felt their program was worth upwards of $340. For an ipad app. So I wrote a review, offering marketing advice. lol :) Just before I deleted the app from my ipad, I discovered a little box at the top of the store page that says categories. It offers sets of sounds at discounts. So there I was back at the review, hitting delete.
Now these sound packages are by no means inexpensive, but it is a good marketing move to "bundle" and drop the price a bit. I still ended up paying more for this app than any other so far, simply because the sounds are good. The layout works. You don't hear the loops, at least I don't...the variety is very nice.
So yes it's expensive. And yes the developers offer options/packages. That is nice. What's nicer is that the app actually is an incredibly well put together app that does what it should, when it should.
Sometimes I wish that we could mix sounds, but for now that's the main flaw. Otherwise, it's a great app. And you get what you pay for.
Incredible spaces and so many of them
I bought this a couple years ago. After they added in-app purchasing, I bought about five or six additional sounds. On good headphones like Eymotic's, the sound is not believable! If you shut your eyes, the Campfire is really there. I can tell some of the environments "loop" and repeat, but I can never tell where.
Several of these I use to cover noisy neighbors. I have used them on subways with good isolating headphones—and you are suddenly miles away.
A few of them have sort-of New Age synths in the background. I don't like those so much since I would not normally hear that stuff in the real world. They are good at marking which ones those are, tho, if you want to avoid them also
Update March 2012: They added more environments. This is kinda silly, but it's fun: put on good headphones, and select an environment that goes with the book you are reading. (The Wolves track, along with "Game of Thrones" really freaked me out late one night!) It is really transporting into that author's world.
Excellent App, superb quality.
I absolutely love this application. I own all but a handful of the tracks.
First off, the recordings are amazing. I can't imagine the work, the equipment and the skill this Team has gone through to produce the quality that they have. When you actually sit and focus on the sounds even for a minute they become real. Right now it is raining and i'm in my tent typing this...it's not really below freezing outside...=)
Second, for those having technical difficulties with this App or any others, contact the Devs first before bashing the App. Also if the Devs fix any bugs and you say 1 Star until they fix and then do have the personal integrity to go back and change your rating. I saw lots of reviews bashing this App about issues and clearly they have fixed any bugs but no one adjusted their review.
I highly recommend this app and the tracks are amazing. The personal reviews on the tracks are great guides to choosing what you would like.
