ASMR can be used to help in a variety of situations; focusing, studying, relaxing and even reading. But perhaps where ASMR videos are most effective is for sleeping. We’ve put together some of the best ASMR videos for sleep in the list below.

And if you’re interested in recording your own ASMR content with an ASMR microphone, learn more here.

What is ASMR?

ASMR or Autonomous sensory meridian response is a term used for an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia. ASMR signifies the subjective experience of “low-grade euphoria” characterized by “a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin”. It is most commonly triggered by specific acoustic or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control.

Why ASMR?

To say that sound plays a crucial role in triggering this pleasurable sensation is an understatement. The best ASMRtists are also audiophiles, and together they have raised widespread awareness of a superior alternative to stereo sound called binaural audio. Binaural ASMR, like all binaural recording, captures sound as you actually hear it by employing two microphones spaced to approximate the distance between your ears. Many online videos and audio tracks are marked “Binaural ASMR,” but some of them are actually stereo recordings, which why there’s a sub-Reddit dedicated  to “Real Binaural ASMR.” The difference in sound quality is clear. When you play back a binaural recording through headphones, it produces the incredibly immersive sensation of being in the same exact place where the recording was made. It’s a difference you can physically feel.

Unbox The True Potential of ASMR

ASMR is another niche in binaural recording. Like all of the people and videos mentioned above, it triggers that sense on the back of your neck and down your spine and can send you into a state of relaxation. It helps calm people down and even deal with anxiety, helping people focus on that feeling moving down their body and having their attention elsewhere. It doesn’t even have to be staged or practiced ASMR tricks, either. Sometimes, being placed in another spot helps others by itself. But ASMR is a pop culture phenomenon that is helping society articulate and define what ASMR and binaural are, how they can be used, and even how they can be helpful.
