Over the past few years, ASMR channels have exploded on YouTube. 

Creators in this niche aim to activate their viewers’ autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR). This is a pleasant tingling sensation that starts on top of your head before moving down your neck and spine. Not all people are susceptible, but many say it helps them relax and even fall asleep! 

How ASMR YouTubers trigger this response varies. Some use tapping and scratching noises, crispy sounds, or simulate beauty treatments, from braiding hair to removing eyelash extensions. Some integrate the sounds into full-on roleplay of everyday situations, from going to see a therapist to getting a haircut. 

But what are the best ASMR YouTube channels? We’ve done the research for you. Here are our top five.

To start with, there’s CoromoSara. With over 2.4 Million subscribers, she’s one of the most popular ASMR creators out there.

Based in Japan, she relies on whispering, scratching, hair brushing, ear cleaning, and massages to trigger tingly feelings in her viewers. Her videos are all remarkably extensive. On average, they run well over an hour, letting viewers relax and fall asleep in their own good time. 

Plus, CoromoSara also has ready-made playlists centering around certain trigger sounds and different video flavors.

Next up, there’s ASMR Bakery, another YouTube channel with excellent ASMR content. It offers a huge range of videos – some quick 10-minute tingly fixes, others multi-hour marathons of tapping and scratching to give you those good vibes.

One thing that makes ASMR Bakery stand out is that some of the featured triggers are truly out of the ordinary, including popping a giant bean pod.

Many get the ASMR strongest response from some particular sound, so creators build whole videos around a single type of noise. This one from ASMR Bakery only focuses on tapping.

If you’re a fan of re-creating real-life situations to trigger ASMR, this is the right place for you. From a school nurse lice check to getting healing facial therapy, LatteASMR transports you into roleplay scenarios that will get your tingles going.

Another plus: Videos are available in different languages!

Situations with close personal attention are an ASMR favorite.

If you’re not into the soft female aesthetic that many ASMR YouTube channels on this list feature, Dong ASMR is a fantastic alternative. 

Dong describes himself as “Just a guy who makes asmr videos in a weird/relaxing/storytelling way”. And he delivers exactly that. 

Dong gets creative when it comes to using props (his sponge collection makes several appearances!) and involving other people to boost his ASMR, including his editor and subscribers. 

Mouth sounds – as shown here by Dong – are another major ASMR trigger, though they’re not for everyone.

Finally, there’s morningASMR, which offers a particular flavor of ASMR videos with amazing consistency and quality: Close-up shots of neck massages, hair brushing, and back scratches. 

Here, you can get lost in multi-hour hair play and brushing sessions while enjoying fantastically relaxing tingles.

Like the title indicates, ASMR videos have a hypnotic, sleep-inducing effect on some people.
