pink noise

Pink noise can be used to mask distracting sounds in the environment around you. It can be useful for providing a neutral sonic background for concentration.

The program speaker-test comes in the alsa-utils package, and provides pink noise by default. This is described by its man page as “perceptually uniform noise”. There are a number of other options, but for a quick noise generator, speaker-test is very handy.
