Enjoy Four ASMR Videos from Apple – Crunching, Whispering, Woodworking, Rain
Apple has released a series of interesting ASMR videos to listen to and enjoy with headphones on. The videos emphasize different sounds, like falling rain, the sounds of boots on a trail, the sounds of workworking, and the sound of someone whispering. Apple recommends wearing headphones for the best experience.
ASMR, which stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, is apparently supposed to trigger positive feelings or tingling in the listener in a similar way to using a scalp massager.
The Apple ASMR videos have been embedded below for trying out yourself, Apple says they are best enjoyed wearing a set of headphones.
If you have never heard of ASMR before (and you certainly wouldn’t be alone), then you can read more about ASMR here.
The series of videos were apparently all shot with iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, but with additional professional hardware and software presumably to capture the high quality sounds.
Apple ASMR — Satisfying woodshop sounds
Apple YouTube describes the work working video as: “ASMR, shot and recorded on iPhone, to relax wherever you are. Savor the rhythmic sounds of wood as it’s scraped and shaved into a work of art.”
Apple ASMR – A calm rain at camp
“Apple ASMR — A calm rain at camp — Shot on iPhone” features the sounds of rain falling on a tent and in the outdoors, and the sounds of rain falling on various camping gear like pots and pans, and rain falling on an inflatable camp mattress (not to judge anyone but I personally like to sleep on a dry bed).
The Apple YouTube channel describes this video as “ASMR, shot and recorded on iPhone, to relax wherever you are. Immerse yourself in the delicate tapping of rainfall, without getting wet.”
Apple ASMR — Crunching sounds on the trail
Apple YouTube describes the trail crunch video as “ASMR, shot and recorded on iPhone, to relax wherever you are. Follow the satisfying crunch underfoot, wherever the trail takes you.”
Apple ASMR — Whispers from Ghost Forest
Apple YouTube describes the ‘Whispers’ video as “ASMR, shot and recorded on iPhone, to relax wherever you are. Unwind with the whispered legend of Ghost Forest.”
