White Noise

Technology / Home Audio / White Noise: Random noise with equal energy per frequency is called white noise. It tends to sound very bright and 'hissy' due to the unique characteristics of the human ear's frequency response curve. Each ascending octave contains twice as many frequencies as the next lower one, resulting in a significant 'build up' of energy in the higher octaves.
