Publisher's Summary

Listen and see if ASMR 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. With its emphasis on creating a heightened sensory experience, ASMR can bring you fully into the present moment - a powerful way to achieve the kind of total relaxation you need to achieve deep sleep. 

In this piece from Whisperlodge, a pioneering New York-based company that performs live ASMR experiences, an ASMRtist plays with various office supplies while gently whispering about the history of ASMR and how it became a source of pleasure and relaxation for so many. 

With its accessible educational component, it's the perfect introductory piece to ASMR.

This title is part of a collection of audio experiences created to deliver your best sleep during this difficult time.

Induces anxiety and ASMR in equal measures

The voice is calming and the sounds are some classics for ASMR. The scenario that unfolds and the related visualizations, however, were laughably un-relaxing. Going to a professor's office to watch him grade my assignment in front of me, then wrapping my head in tissue paper while whispering in my ears is... undesirable.

Headline

Not really my cup of tea, maybe fine for others. Felt like I was about to get molested within the first 30 seconds of entering the office.

Terrifying narration!

The narrator should be reading horror stories. He sounds like a psychopath who sneaks up and grabs someone from behind and then whispers horrifying threats into the victim’s ear while holding a knife to the terrified person’s throat. Just a few minutes of this was enough to give me nightmares. How is the content? I have no idea. I was too busy freaking out and tearing my headphones off.

This Works So Well I Don't Know What It's About

I'm a lifelong insomniac, and I try everything I hear about to try to sleep. Last night I decided to try this new gift from Audible. I was gone in under ten minutes. I woke up again (as usual) and tried it again. Usually nothing works twice. But amazingly, I conked out again! So then I woke up again, too early (as usual), and played it a third time. Miracle! I was sound asleep in just a few minutes! For someone with all three types of insomnia, this is incredible. So I may never hear the ending of The Office...in fact, I hope I never do hear the ending of The Office! Thank you, Audible and Will Watt.

The First Ever ARMRtist Audiobook?

Whisperlodge's The Office (2020) is the first ever audiobook that is an actual ASMRtist performance to my knowledge. Narrator Will Watt taps or riffles through various office objects while also describing the history and the nature of the ASMR experience. He speaks in a soft-voiced tone instead of the whispered voice which is the most common in YouTube ASMRtist videos. I still found the resulting effect to be almost continuous throughout the audiobook, the ASMR tingles were constantly present but would peak in waves when a change of object was introduced.

The above will be a complete mystery to those who don't experience the sensation, but the effectiveness of the performance here earns an easy 5 star rating for its relaxation and euphoric qualities.

Super Weird and Even More Creepy

I felt like he was one of my teachers trying to molest me. I’m not sure how this supposed to help you sleep , because it made me nervous.

Proof Will Watt is the best voice for everything!

I found Will Watt as a voice actor from his audiobooks, and so this was a real change of pace for me but I absolutely loved it! First time I had heard of ASMR actually so I didn't know what I was getting into but it was like magic! xxx

Surprised!

Didn't think ASMR was for me. Had seen a few videos online and it always seemed weird, but this was WAY better! I understand a lot more about ASMR now and see why it helps make many people relaxed. Definitely want to listen to more of these.

Truly amazing narration.

Will Watt provides the most relaxing performance I’ve ever heard. His voice is like warm melted butter. His narration put me in the most relaxed state I’ve ever been in. I felt like he was in the room with me, personally whispering into my ear. Truly amazing!

How is this irritating noise story supposed to help you sleep!!

Awful as a sleep story. Don’t bother. Loads of irritating noises like paper tearing etc. Not at all restful

I found this performance hilarious

but mainly totally pointless for its intended use. I'm now wide awake laughing at what I've just experienced.

Rubbish sleep story!

I’ve never listened to ASMR before and thought I’d give it a go, as it’s supposed to be very relaxing. Well... all l can say is that it wasn’t!!!
The sounds kept moving higher and lower in volume (closer or further away from the mic) which was vastly annoying when you were trying to drop off! The narrative was okay- not too loudly spoken and the cadence was kept even.
I didn’t enjoy the experience.
