22 best ASMR printer videosAh, the sweet, ethereal sounds of feeder rollers, swishy paper, and electronic bleep-blorp. Printers play a special role in all our lives, especially for fans of ASMR audio and video, who get a deep, sensual thrill from this everyday office workhorse.

ASM-what?

According to the all-knowing gods at Wikipedia, ASMR— autonomous sensory meridian response — is an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. In short, it’s a hair-raising thrill brought on by sound. But not loud, brashy sounds. Soft, repetitive sounds. Murmured voices…whispered conversations…crinkly pages…churning printers.

Best Of The ‘Net

We scoured the Internet in search of the most satisfying ASMR printer clips we could find. We found a lot, a little something for everyone. Some are simple sound effect clips. Others are office roleplay videos featuring printers. It all sounds good to us!

Press play on this video and prepare yourself for a longform sensory thrill. Perfect for helping you settle in for a long night’s sleep.

Of all the great things available on the Internet — including toner buyback programs — none is greater than 10 hours of printer sounds.  

WHITE NOISE ~ Repetitive Sound of Printing Press ~ Focus, Studying, Sleeping, Baby – 8hrs

ASMR – Printer

A Canon inkjet runs through the motions in this 7-and-a-half minute video, shot in darkness with only the printer’s LED screen to guide us.
