Ambience (or cave sounds in Legacy Console Edition and eerie noise according to Java Edition subtitles) is a variety of eerie sounds that can play when the player is underground or in a dark cave. It can be played in any dimension, including The Nether and The End, and can be heard in both singleplayer and Multiplayer. Ambience can occur in a space of any size with a light level lower than 8, without any lighting from the sky.
Ambience does not direct to ores, dungeons, nor strongholds; nor is it dangerous itself.

- Ambience does not direct to ores, dungeons or strongholds; it directs towards unlit caves and unexplored areas underground.
- Prior to 1.2.1, ambience could not be heard in multiplayer.
- There is nothing dangerous about ambience, yet it may scare players. It may be thought dangerous as ambience could lead to a dark cave with monsters inside, but it is not dangerous itself. It can warn a player that hostile Mobs can spawn in an area they are trying to light up, which means that it can help prevent danger.
- Ambience was made by C418, the composer who makes the music.
- Putting Cave Sound 14 in a spectrogram will result in a creeper face.
