LoFi ASMR, short for "low-fidelity autonomous sensory meridian response," refers to a type of ASMR that incorporates elements of lo-fi music. ASMR, or autonomous sensory meridian response, is a sensation of tingling and relaxation that some people experience in response to certain stimuli, such as soft sounds or gentle touch.
In LoFi ASMR, the sounds are typically low-fidelity, with crackling or static noises that create a nostalgic or vintage feel. The content may include soft spoken or whispered voiceovers, tapping or scratching sounds, and other gentle noises that are intended to induce a sense of calm and relaxation in the listener.
This type of ASMR can be found in various forms, including videos on platforms like YouTube and Twitch, as well as podcasts and music playlists. It has become increasingly popular in recent years as a way for people to unwind and destress, and can be especially helpful for those who struggle with anxiety or insomnia.
