Let’s not pretend that loud snoring is ever pleasant, however, you’ve got to admit that certain snorers are worse, better or even more entertaining than others. Whether it’s you or one of your loved ones that snores, chances are the snorer has developed a bit of their own personal snoring style. We’ve made a list of some of the most common snoring sounds we’ve encountered.

The drumroller

The drumroller emits a deep, heavy rumbling sound as they snore. The rumbling gets louder and louder, almost as a drumroll warning people around that something’s coming. Unbeknownst to the snorer, what’s coming just may be a kick in the shin from their partner.

The excited pig

If you’re an excited pig snorer, it means you’re bringing the full-on heavy snorts to the bedroom in a continuous hog-like frenzy. But it’s okay, because pigs are cute...right?


The whistler

If you’re a whistler, you tend to, well, whistle as you snore. While you’re inhaling into a grand crescendo and exhaling into a melodious, bird-like tune, your partner hears an obnoxious rumbling followed by an irritating wheezing. Too bad they can’t appreciate the fine music you’re creating.


The faulty engine

Ever have a car that would rumble and wheeze a bit before getting started? With some high-pitched rasps followed by some deep engine-like murmur, the faulty engine snorer offers a range of sounds that are guaranteed to keep listeners on their toes...and fully irritated.

As much as we like to poke fun at snorers, in all reality, snoring is far more than just an annoying habit. In many cases, snoring is a sign of additional health issues that, if left untreated, can be incredibly dangerous.
