Fireplace Nature Sounds. Fireplace: A crackling fire burning in the fireplace, the dull roar of the flames, the pops and snaps of the fiery logs. The constant and consistent sound is supremely relaxing and makes a good masking recording to cover ringing in the ears. Even during the warmer months, the sounds of a great fireplace is wonderful for relieving tension. A great soothing and relaxing sleep aid. Put on your favorite set of headphones or earbuds, sit back and relax in your recliner or sofa, and let time pass in your state of total relaxation.
