  • Summary

  • Due to its ability to deeply relax the mind and body, ASMR has become a source of calm and pleasure for millions. Listen and see if it triggers your autonomous sensory meridian response, a tingling sensation that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. For the best listening experience, we recommend listening to these tracks wearing headphones.

    This is an Audible Original Podcast. Free for members. When you add ASMR from Audible Sleep to your library, you'll receive all previous episodes and will continue to receive new ones as they're released.

Very relaxing and calming. Not creepy at all.

I'm not sure what the previous reviewer was on about, ASMR is one of the most relaxing and calming experiences that anyone can get from any sound that is around them. Even in your own home you can experience ASMR.
It is far from "creepy". It helps me sleep, feel calm and relaxed and has even saved my life one occasions.
I love that Audible is bringing ASMR into a more mainstream platform.

Hope they add more.

Beautiful relaxing ASMR series. My favourite is The Office. I kept missing the ending as I would be asleep by halfway

Annoying emphasis

I understand this is a whispered story, and the ASMR isn't all bad... but the way the narrator emphasises certain words was annoying from the outset. I gave it 10 mins and found myself myself so irritated I had to stop.
"I -love- the way this comb sounds"
"I'm going to comb -all- the way to the ends".
Every sentence spoken has at least one word that is overly emphasised unnecessarily.

Very Creepy and Frightening Indeed!

This is not relaxing at all. I have found it to cause more tension and anxiety instead. I agree with a prior reviewer that this audio is creepy, or simply put scary and sinister. That being said try it for yourself. I have deleted mine from my library as it had too many bad vibes.

Unpleasant mini horror story

Creepy in the extreme. How this can help anyone relax is a mystery. Takes all sorts.

Not for me

I really tried to get into this but just couldn't. I tried listening to a few different ones but I found the sounds grating instead of relaxing. Just not fit me obviously.

Creepy and unnerving

Only made it through the first 10 mins of the first episode - the narrator's tone, pace and subject matter is creepy and unsettling. Nightmare material

A bit Creepy

Sorry, but I'm familiar with ASRM and soundscapes but this was, particularly the tailor, weird and creepy and the end of the tailor is really sinister and had the opposite of sending me to sleep. The actual sounds of the paper rustling etc was very restful, it's the freaky whispering and the two different volume levels that put me off.Had to delete it so I couldn't listen to it by accident again!

Need nightmares!?! This is perfect!

TBH i only downloaded this as the reviews were amusing and wanted to see if it really could be so bad!

Its worse! subject matter of the first episode and the narrators voice are terrifying. 50 shades of WTF!

If this helps you sleep you need help

Sinister whispering

Just so weird. Can’t imagine who would find this relaxing, but I’m sure some people do. It was my first experience of ASMR and I’m now off to read about it and find out whether the sinister whispering is an integral part of it or just something weird they’ve chosen to do here.

The reviewer who mentioned grooming really made me laugh and I can’t help agreeing. Though it also reminded me of The Blair Witch Project.

Just awful

It feels like you are being groomed by a paedophile. I found it really discomforting to hear the heavy breathing and guttural sounds as the narrator spoke.

No thanks!

Creepily amusing...

If you want the experience of being held captive in a basement by a 'stationery-obsessed-ex-Paperchase-employee-serial-
killer', may I suggest this.....?

Love Live ASMR!

I have long been a fan of ASMR and I am so happy to see it in a more main stream setting. It is either something you get or you don't but for those of us who do it is amazing. If you like everyday sounds such as the hairdryer, paper, typing and fabric rustling then it's worth a try. By focusing on the sounds it helps calm down your thoughts and if you are lucky enough to experience the tingles it will open up a whole new world in relaxation!

Relaxing

I've never heard of ASMR but it's a terrific way of slowing the mind when you're trying to get off to sleep. It totally takes you out of your worries as you're delved into a relaxing sensation of sounds and descriptions. Very sensual and relaxing. Loved it.

Amazing Experience

WOW - never heard of ASMR but these broadcasts are amazing! SO relaxing, I am quite sensitive so the 'tingling' comes easy for me. More like this please Audible.
