White noise is a type of noise that is produced by combining sounds of all different frequencies together. If you took all of the imaginable tones that a human can hear and combined them together, you would have white noise. Because white noise contains all frequencies, it is frequently used to mask other kinds of sounds because it effectively overloads or “numbs” our auditory systems.
Some people use white noise to mask unwanted noises (nearby traffic, neighbors, barking dogs, spouse's snore, next room hotel guests, etc) that interrupt their sleep. The net result is a more restful sleep with the full rejuvenating benefits that a good night's sleep can bring.
White noise can actually be obtained in many forms, for instance some people say that radio static or the humming sound of a running fan, rain or air conditioner provides white noise. Some companies produce hardware noise masking solutions (sound machines and white noise generators) but they usually are bulky or cumbersome to use, they usually have one speaker (with fixed sound samples) and they usually are to expensive to acquire costing hundreds of dollars.
