: Anyone heard of this? -- "white noise".

Just as white light is light that is made up of all of the different colors (frequencies) of light combined together, white noise is a combination of all different frequencies of sounds.
This combo of noise is used to drown out other sounds.
Sorta like being in a room with hundreds of people talking. You cant hear anything but the white noise.
