Relax With Some Rain and White Noise
This week I stumbled across two similar sites that provide some pleasant auditory distraction through a simple web interface.
The first site SimplyNoise offers up some white, brown, and pink noise to help drown out distractions. And the second site RainyMood plays a gentle 30-minute loop of rain to help you relax and wash your stress away.

Simplynoise.com has popped up on reddit several times – read this comment for some sage advice re: noise masking.
tl;dr Listen to the brown/red noise, DO NOT listen to the white noise.
Stephen, thanks for the tips. Definitely good tips (pasting 3 from the comment):
* my favorite ocean waves generator(http://www.katsurashareware.com/pgs/oceanwaves.html). Only works on OS X and works best if you roll off the high end.
* most anything from Bernie Krause (http://www.wildsanctuary.com/) will give you the space you need.
* Cheap … solution: sign up for seven days of eMusic. Look here (http://www.emusic.com/artist/Natural-Sounds-MP3-Download/11570976.html). Pretty much every one of these albums is one or two tracks of actual recorded ambience, nearly all of it without that new-agey panflute shit over the top of it. With 25 free downloads, you can get damn near three straight workdays of non-repeating, unlooped background noise for absolutely free.
