Our sunroom has two skylights. Despite being double glaze, itís easy to hear the rain falling on them.

They have apps for this.. just download the app and you can have rain sounds.... even when it’s not raining. They’re free to download.

OK, well, I got excoriated for making a suggestion, but I'll throw another one out there:


Get a big sheet of corrugated steel as used for roofing material. Put it out in the yard, up on four cinder blocks, in a place where the rain can hit it. Voila! lots of rain sound!

Avoid the whole baby monitor nonsense. They aren't designed for outdoor use, so can't be relied on. Water and unprotected electronics simply do not mix. This wouldn't be high voltage/current issue, but it's still a bad idea.

I'd personally find an outdoor microphone designed for humidity, that is wireless (say Bluetooth). Send the audio signal inside to a sound system. If not wireless, have one with a flat cord. Either one would still need power, but maybe a battery model would be available.

Or, get one of those sound generators, and have rain sounds available 24/7.

Or, run sounds from YouTube over a phone, computer, or sound system.
