Yahoo!, attributed to the Washington Post:

"For some with ADHD, the low rumble of brown noise quiets the brain"

The clickity clack of wheels against train tracks had a similar soothing effect on rail passengers back in the pre Jet heyday of American passenger trains. So that might be considered a type of "brown noise".

I often use brown noise when I'm working. It does quieten the part of the brain that wants to distract me.

I've heard white and pink noise and I find them to be too high-pitched. Brown noise, though, just right. I have ADHD and autism.

can't say noise like that has ever done anything for me, though I wish it did. I struggle real bad with sleeping and listen to things to help me fall asleep... eventually. my brain often takes a good while to truly settle tho.
