Amal is one of the founding names in ASMR, and she has steadily built up her fan base to the point where she is now the 10th most popular ASMR artist. Her first video came out over four years ago, at a time when most people had never even heard of the term ‘ASMR’.
While many of her early video were somewhat basic, her recent works are all tingle inducing masterpieces. With a combination of an incredible whispered voice, and a penchant for relaxing tapping, Amal provides some of the best ASMR triggers out there. And it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if she continues to climb the ranking chart in the coming years.
Chloe burst onto the ASMR scene two years ago and right out of the gate, her videos were some of the best YouTube had to offer. She creates a solid mix of role-playing and raw ASMR videos, and with her unbelievably relaxing accented voice, she has earned her place in the top ten.
Another relative newcomer to ASMR, Olivia has quickly developed a loyal following. Unlike the other ASMR artists on this list, Olivia uses her background in psychology and transpersonal psychology to delve into really interesting areas of ASMR. It’s not unusual to see truly unique videos on her channel, exploring areas such as lucid dreaming, meditation and even hypnosis.
Unlike most of the others on this list, Ilse focuses almost exclusively on raw ASMR videos. These include tapping, whispering, crinkling and a whole host of other sounds to trigger a person’s ASMR. While she does occasionally do some role-playing videos, they tend to be relatively rare.
Ilse has stated that she experienced ASMR as a child, but like so many others, never had a name for the phenomenon. Now that she recognizes the source of these sensations, she has made it her goal to regularly produce tingle inducing content for her legion of fans.
Fairy Char’s enthusiasm for ASMR is almost infectious, and her bubbly, optimistic personality bleeds through to all of the work that she does. She’s is one of the oldest names in ASMR, and produces high quality content on a regular basis. Watch for her star to continue to rise, as her videos have only been improving in recent years.
Male ASMR artists tend to be somewhat rare, but Ephemeral rift has built a huge fan base with his eclectic, and often downright bizarre videos. He’s never afraid to push the boundaries when it comes to ASMR, and he’s probably the only person in the world who could create a relaxing video, featuring a plague doctor. Combine that with his everyman vibe, and you have one of the most popular, and without a doubt, skilled ASMR artists out there.
A few years ago, no one would have believed that a channel focused on just watching someone massage a person would have nearly 300 thousand subscribers – but somehow, Dmitri of Massage ASMR made it work.
While his videos have branched out to include more traditional ASMR triggers recently, many of his earlier works featured nothing more than him massaging someone, while narrating with his amazing Australian accent.
If one word comes to mind when describing Ally, it’s innovative. She is on the cutting edge of ASMR, and produces videos that could easily be mistaken as coming from a high budget studio. Few others can match the level of professionalism in her videos, and some of her special effects are mind blowing.
But if you look past all of the special effects, and experimental video technology, there’s no arguing with the fact that Ally produces some of the most tingle inducing videos out there. Even if she hadn’t created such ground breaking videos as Departure, there’s no question she would have still found her way into the top ten list.
Heather brings an amazing positive energy to every video she produces, and it’s easy to see why she holds the second place on this list. She describes creating videos as being on an adventure with her fans, and the amazing variety of content she creates mirrors this statement. Whether creating original stories, wonderful role-plays, guided mediations, or raw ASMR videos, she always produces only the very best content.
Coming in first at a staggering half a million subscribers, is Maria of GentleWhispering. No one has found more fame through ASMR than her and she’s become the poster child of these niche videos in recent years. She has appeared in a variety of media, and even been featured in a Washington Post article.
But if you ignore all that, there’s a reasons she’s number one of this list – she makes amazing ASMR videos. It’s a simple as that. Every video is lovingly crafted to induce tingles in her viewers, and whether she’s role-playing a flight attendant, or just giving a gentle head massage, everything she creates is always top notch.
