The essential idea of white noise is to create constant and unchanging background noise to help us fall asleep or to study. From crickets chirping to distant thunder noises, white noises drown out any potentially distracting sounds.
The adjective "white" was used to describe the sound because its ultimate combination has similarities to the qualities of white light.
