Publisher's summary

Headphones recommended. 

Allow yourself to relax as a loving maternal figure combs, brushes, and braids your hair, then pins it up with ribbons. Throughout, she warmly reminisces about her own childhood while admiring you and your hair in the mirror. Whisperlodge is a pioneering New York-based company that performs live ASMR events around the country. Their collaboration with us is the first time they've allowed their work to be recorded, and you can now experience the talent of their renowned ASMRtists at home. 

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. 

This title is part of The Audible Sleep Collection, exclusive audio experiences created to invite relaxation and sleep. New and free for members.

this says optional. but then you require it.

This one was not as good as a previous sleep story that I listened to. this one has a lot of noises in it. it makes the story more believable and it goes from one ear to the other ear, but it's very distracting and I think helped to keep me awake. the whispering voice is also rather creepy, but is intended to relax you, but I found it creepy.

Creepy

I gave up a few minutes into the recording. The whispering was just too creepy.

This is not ASMR.

I am a huge ASMR fan and this is just not well done. The audio lacks the crisp, detailed audio quality I get even from smaller ASMRtists on YouTube or Patreon. I don’t see what the fuss is about at all for these Audible Whisperlodge tracks.

Irrating

I tried to listen to this while falling asleep and was irritated! I gave up on it and went to sleep. The whole story is down as if someone is whispering in your ear. Just talk and I can fall asleep. Whispering makes me look for the source thus keeping me awake.

Triggers are good, voice acting is not great.

The triggers are good, sound quality is crisp and clear. The storyline is relaxing. This narrator has a nice voice, but stiff and unconvincing voice acting. Maybe look into popular ASMR artists from YouTube to narrate future offerings like this.

Loud props

I am a diehard ASMR fan. But, this just didn’t make sense. The performer was fine. It wasn’t a bad story line. But the shrill sound of the snipping scissors was awful. I felt more tense after the couple of minutes of fast snipping sounds. I had to finally skip past it. Then it was a blow dryer. A blow dryer should never be incorporated into ASMR. I was wide awake and irritated. Seems like such a rookie mistake. And I love the Whisper Lodge audios!

not exactly....

Although the voice is quite calming, the sounds are so unrealistic. The hair cutting sounds like someone is just ripping paper or using a knife sharpener. The sounds are also pretty creepy, like the comb that she uses at the beginning. I also cant tell if the voice is a boy or a girl. Overall it’s pretty weird.
