ASMR and Its Whisperers

Do you like watching people flip through magazines? Does the sound of bubble wrap relax you? Have you ever stopped to watch Bob Ross’s painting show on PBS just because you like his slow, gentle voice and the sound of his paint brush running over the canvas? If so, then you might have ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response).

ASMR is a tingling and relaxing sensation triggered by whispers, slow movements, and soft sounds. Over the last few years, an entire community of "whisperers" have sprung up on YouTube. These “ASMR artists” create videos that can last from a few minutes to a few hours. Viewers watch the ASMR artists tap on objects, flip through books, or whisper about various topics to promote relaxation and/or sleep.

Science has not been able to explain ASMR, and not everyone experiences the tingling sensation when they listen to an ASMR video, but it is immensely helpful for those who do. Below is a list of my favorite ASMR artists (in alphabetical order- because I can't choose a favorite). Each artist brings something different to the ASMR community. Some incorporate their lives into their videos, while others prefer to remain anonymous, never even revealing their faces. Some create professional, polished videos with props and special effects while others simply use their camera phone and whatever objects are nearby. They live all over the world and are from different generations and backgrounds. If you like what you see, check out some of their videos to discover your ASMR triggers and help you calm down and fall sleep after an exhausting day.

albinwhisperland

This Canadian YouTuber is a born ASMR artist. She has a high but calming voice and buys a lot of interesting souvenirs on her trips to tap on, crinkle, and talk about. Her videos are colorful and bright but slow and serene. If you like candy, Alice In Wonderland, comic books, and Disney characters, hers is the channel for you. I especially like the painting and drawing tips that she incorporates into her art videos, her Morticia Addams role plays, and the shopping bag that she crinkles at the end of her "New York Goodies" video.

  • hand motions
  • clear whisper voice
  • interesting props
  • colorful backgrounds
  • artistic

Videos to Watch

ASMR Darling

From her signature greeting of a quick, whispered, "Hey!", ASMR Darling is already likable. She brings a centeredness to even her more unusual videos, and she looks at the camera as if she can see her viewer watching her from the other end. She also likes to experiment with different types of videos and keeps the run time short so that you can view multiple videos in one sitting before you fall asleep.

Strengths

  • attentive
  • short videos
  • cheerfulness

Videos

  • ASMR Prom Makeup and Dresses
  • ASMR Tapping Christmas Decorations
  • Color with Me!

ASMR Massage PsycheTruth

This channel is hosted by a team of women who take turns brushing each other's hair, giving massages, and role playing. They have soft speaking, whispering, and no talking videos. Their sounds are sharp and crisp, and their movements are slow and gentle. They offer a variety of tips and expertise on beauty and health topics, and their videos are always a decent length, not too long or short. I like how they dress up for every video and really get into their role plays and tutorials.

Strengths

  • highly professional technology, multi-camera angles and high quality microphones
  • regularly posted videos

ASMRrequests

This ASMR artist's videos include role plays, creating sounds with thrift shop items, and theme videos. Some of her videos have better special effects than some Hollywood movies. Whether you want to see an elaborate show or just a bare bones whisper video, she's got a variety to choose from. I appreciate the research that goes into some of her videos and the trivia that she provides on specific topics.

This whisperer has dozens of role play videos and a really fun Top 10 series. Known for her unique voice and candid nature, she's another ASMR community favorite. Her medical role plays are some of the best in the genre, complete with lab coat, instruments, and even introductory phone calls where the appointment is made before the patient comes into the office.

GentleWhispering is a favorite in the ASMR community and may even be the star of ASMR. She has a great Russian accent and very fluid hand motions. Her videos showcase her interests including: origami, crafting, and Russian culture. She puts out tons of content, is always original, and has a variety of interests, with new ones constantly being introduced, such as crystals and meditative art.

Gibi ASMR

Gibi is a quirky artist with elaborate dress up videos and role plays.In the end, though, she achieves what she sets out to do: put her audience to sleep. Her videos involve cooking, make up, anime, medical tools, found objects, and fantasy. She has a lot of personality, and you can see that she has fun making her videos.

  • imagination

Videos to Watch

  • Following the Light (relaxation)
  • (ASMR) 5 POUND CHOCOLATE BAR

Hungry Cakes

Some people can't stand the sound of eating, especially loud eating. If, like me, you disagree, Hungry Cakes is the channel for you. This whisperer participates in the sub-genre of mukbang videos, where someone sits and eats a big meal for the duration of a video. This is not a good channel to watch if you're hungry (though I do), but it is a great channel to watch if you love food, especially food that is bad for you. I'm addicted to her Chick-fil-A video where she displays every kind of sauce that the chain provides and tries them all as she devours her meal.

Strengths

  • mukbang
  • eating sounds
  • good food

Videos to Watch

  • ASMR: Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich *Eating Sounds*
  • ASMR: Lemon Cake *Eating Sounds* Mukbang
  • ASMR: Nigiri Sushi

Latte ASMR

Latte jumps right into her role plays in the first few seconds with a brief introduction before she gets right to work. She has one of the highest voices in the ASMR universe, giving her a natural whisper voice. She moves slowly and rhythmically, creating a sleep-inducing environment. Her backgrounds are colorful and interesting, and she has some imaginative ideas for videos. I like to listen to her channel as I work on the computer or just to recharge after work.

Strengths

  • voice
  • backgrounds
  • slow hand movements

Videos to Watch

  • Relaxing Facial Spa Treatment
  • ASMR Cranial Nerve Exam Roleplay
  • Calm and Peaceful Time with a Nurse

MassageASMR

Massaging is his specialty, but MassageASMR is just as effective an ASMR artist when he is silently crinkling packages for hours on end. He stands out in a female-dominated art form and has a gentle way of speaking without being creepy, offering tips and the choice of verbal vs. silent versions of some of his videos. His role plays aren't bad either.Dr. Dmitri always gets me to sleep. I like how some of his videos give you an option between a speaking and non-speaking version. Depending on my mood, I tend to prefer one over the other on different days.

Strengths

  • gentle voice
  • crinkle master
  • deep topics
  • massage videos

Videos to Watch

  • Back Massage to Reduce Lower Back Pain & Relaxation - ASMR
  • ASMR Crincle Heaven 11 - Ear to Ear Crinkles (No Talking)
  • Dmitri Talking about Grief & Anxiety and Tools to Help

RelaxingASMR

I've never seen someone with as many interests as RelaxingASMR, and he uses these interests to create sleep-inducing videos. Whether it's nostalgically flipping through old magazines, testing the water in his fish tank, or setting up his annual Christmas village, he does it with slow, calm movements and only the most necessary whispering. I especially like to watch him work on drawings and crossword puzzles and play a game where he decides what item he would buy on each page of a catalog.

Strengths

  • educational videos/interesting topics
  • strong and steady hand movements
  • catalog flipping

Videos to Watch

  • Page Turning 1992 Store Catalog – ASMR
  • Christmas Village ASMR
  • Will I Choose This or That? - ASMR Sleep Aid

susurrowhisper

Whether she is gum snapping, eating, or reporting on the latest hurricane, susurrowhisper is a character, giving you a snapshot into her daily life, hopes, dreams, and sleepy stories. She doesn't post often, about once a month but has gathered a collection of videos since starting her channel in 2012. Her theme videos where she describes and taps on items found around her house that are a specific color are simple yet unique videos in the ASMR community. I like how she keeps it simple without fancy equipment or props.

Strengths

  • simplicity
  • unique topics
  • personal stories


Videos to Watch

  • Cabbage Patch Kid Rescue
  • State Quarters Collection
  • ASMR Pink and White Show and Tell Soft Spoken

VeniVidiVulpes

Violet is another very open whisperer. She shares stories about her day and her life as she scratches on her binaural microphone. Her videos are nice and long, and she has a useful set of props to help you drift off to sleep. You won't find any new content from her lately, but she has plenty of old stuff to choose from. I love to put on her videos when I'm feeling nostalgic for the time when ASMR videos were new to me.

Strengths

  • long videos
  • slow movements
  • great sound quality

Videos to Watch

  • Hair Brushing and Relaxing Rambling
  • Making Tea *Softly Spoken* *ASMR*
  • ASMR Sounds: Water, Bath Bomb, and Hand Washing

VisualSounds1

VisualSounds1 is a very active member of the ASMR community. She has an enthusiastic interest in pop culture and tons of role play videos to peruse. She also has a very relaxed, conversational tone in her videos. Despite the fact that she is merely talking into a camera lens, she makes me feel like she's an old friend telling me a story through Skype.

Strengths

  • accents
  • enthusiasm
  • pop culture interests
  • acting ability

Videos to Watch

  • DVD's and Rambling (ASMR)
  • Tour of my room

Emma's red hair is her trademark look, and it catches your eye as you are browsing through the latest ASMR video thumbnails. She has a motherly way about her and is intent on finding new ways for improving her videos and expanding her audience, whether it be taping a microphone to her brush or creating a special playlist for children. She has a pleasant nature and a nice variety of videos to choose from. Few whisperers can move as slow as she does to get just the right sound out of her ASMR tools.

  • red hair
  • crinkle noises
  • extra-quiet whispering

        I can also recommend WhispersRed ASMR. She's one of my more recent favorites. Check out her virtual haircut videos or the relaxing by the fire video for a good example of her work.

        Best ASMR artist who doesn't fail to give me goosebumps and or relax me and melt away anxiety. I know that there are different ASMR types for everyone. One size does not fit all. Check out JUICYTINGLES dollar tree haul. The time period on her channel JUICYTINGLES from October 2015 to June 2016 with " haul" or gum popping while showing nail polish collection or gum popping while doing my daughter's hair or sorting make up while chewing popping gum are the best ever. She whispers on some but speaks naturally on most she also does MUKBANG which I don't watch. Also she has another channel EyesMarriedNow. On You Tube one of her best is EyesMarriedNow Halloween haul. The time frame that I mentioned is her strongest work. She's so natural so you don't really think it's intentional ASMR.

        I just got into watching his videos, and one of the whisperers above deleted their account so I might replace hers with his. Thanks for the comment!
