App Description

*** Free for a Limited Time ***

We are over 1,000,000 relaxed Ladies and Gentlemen who immerse ourselves in realistic thunderstorms any time we wish to relax, focus, sleep or meditate.

Join the Thunderspace collective and hear, —or shall we say— *experience* the great benefits Thunderspace will bring to your busy life.

Thunderspace's spectacular 3D audio sound field reproduction technology delivers an incredibly realistic, highest quality open space sonic ambience over regular stereo headphones. That's right, you don't need expensive surround headphones to enjoy true 3D sound. Your regular stereo headphones or earbuds will do. How so? Think 3D glasses for 3D film. Left eye, right eye. Your brain combines these two images into a 3D image. The same principle works for sound: Left ear, right ear. Windy audio is biomimetic: It reproduces the ambient sound field exactly the way you hear. As if you were there. With interaural time and level differences. The storm rumbles high above you, and the rain falls around you. Once you experience the transportive sonic ambience, you will never again want to go back to simple stereo.

Precisely synchronized lightning flashes, wind via WiFi-enabled fans, frequent updates with new thunderstorms, a carefully crafted user interface and highest quality recordings from Emmy-award winning nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton separate Thunderspace from all other relaxation apps.

Thunderspace teleports your mind to a place far away from stress. Far away from the noise. So you can focus on your work, sleep better and relax.
