White noise machines benefit everyone by cutting out the unnecessary sounds through a process of imbibing other frequencies. Using white noise machines in an office setting where several individuals are working from cubicles will give them a more relaxing and soothing environment in which to work while blocking out others in their own cubicles. Many people have explained the natural sounds of the white noise machine as soothing and relaxing such as the sound from rain, a stream, a train, or radio static. When an individual is using a white noise machine the only sound they hear are the pleasant sounds coming from the machine. This is because the ears concentrate on these sounds.
