These tracks are designed for quiet playback by small, portable speakers like the ones in a phone or laptop. You could also use a tablet or similar device to play them, but they’re not meant for headphones or large, powerful speakers.
Play them where they might be overheard. This might be by people in a library or a waiting room, but could equally be family at home, a pet, a plant, or a device.
Their volume is quite low, so you’ll need to play them in a quiet setting. Play them at a volume that’s barely audible to you but that doesn’t disturb the others you’re around. The volume doesn’t change much – don’t worry, there aren’t any jump scares.
