Synchronize Your Brain with Binaural Beats


with the ultimate audio tool. Experience profound levels of focus, meditation, creativity and deep sleep with binaural beat technology. Brain cells resonate to the beat, driving brain activity in ideal states, such as Gamma for enhanced cognitive performance, Beta for focus, Alpha to reduce anxiety and increase creativity, Theta for meditation and memory and Delta for deep sleep and healing.

  • “The highest activities of consciousness have their origins in physical occurrences of the brain, just as the loveliest melodies are not too sublime to be expressed by notes.”

    —W. Somerset Maugham

The Impact of Binaural Beats

Binaural Beats stimulate the remarkable mental state known as hemispheric synchronization, which supports whole-brain thinking. Studies suggest the effectiveness of binaural beats has a profound impact on synchronizing right and left sides of the brain. Most people tend to favor one hemisphere over the other or shift between left-brain (analytical) and right-brain (imaginative) dominance in cycles that last from thirty minutes to three hours. While one hemisphere is dominant, the attributes and skills of the other are less available.

When both hemispheres operate in harmony, you enjoy a profound synergy of logic and imagination. Your mind becomes sharper, more focused, and more lucid. You synthesize and solve problems with greater speed. And you may be delighted to discover that you are more in touch with your emotions and intuition, and more receptive to creative insight.

What are binaural beats?

Brain Sync technology harmonically layers pure and precisely tuned sound waves to gently guide your brain into balance. These sound waves create a binaural beat. A binaural beat is an auditory illusion that occurs in the brain when two slightly different sine waves, or frequencies are delivered to either ear through headphones.

A sine wave is a continuous sound wave with a constant frequency and amplitude. Sine waves are pure tones. For example, a sine wave of 100 Hz played in the left ear plus another one at 107 Hz in the right ear will produce an auditory illusion of a beat oscillating at 7 cycles per second, exactly the difference of the two tones. (Hz is the abbreviation for hertz — not the rental car company but the standard unit for measuring cycles per second.)

In other words, the two hemispheres of the brain function together to “hear” not the external sound signals but instead a third “phantom” beat, which is the mathematical difference between the two tones. The beat is not coming through the headphones but is perceived and "felt" within the brain. It sounds like a soft, gentle drumbeat.

Who Discovered Binaural Beats?

Original research on auditory beats was discovered in 1839 by German physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. Up until 1973, binaural beats were just a curious anomaly until Gerald Oster, M.D., published his landmark article entitled “Auditory Beats in the Brain,” published in The Scientific American magazine. Working at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, Dr. Oster found that binaural beats evoked change in the electrical activity of the listener’s brain. This tendency for brain waves to resonate sympathetically is known as the frequency following response.

In the same way you might tap your foot to the rhythm of a song, brain activity naturally falls into rhythm with binaural beats. This frequency following response means that binaural beats can be orchestrated to influence our brain waves, thus altering our states of consciousness.

Different brain wave types are associated with different mental states, such as alpha for relaxation, beta for concentration, theta for meditation, and delta for sleep. Binaural tones have a completely different effect than isochronic tones.

Are isochronic tones as effective as binaural beats?

There's been a lot of curiosity and hype around "isochronic tones." But generally you can think of isochronic tones as "the ugly cousin" to binaural beats.

While research into isochronic tones is lacking, there are ample studies showing the effectiveness of binaural beats and using specific binaural beat frequencies for brain wave entrainment. In countless clinical studies binaural beats have proven time and time again to drive brain activity into desirable brain states.

What are the benefits of binaural beats?

Research results show that parts of the brain, and eventually large areas of the brain, resonate sympathetically to this ‘phantom’ auditory illusion, like a crystal goblet vibrates in response to a pure musical tone. Binaural beats provide a highly effective method for entraining brain waves and rapidly altering the electrical activity in the brain to boost listeners into highly specific states of consciousness.

Do binaural beats actually work?

In studies conducted at UCLA, Harvard Body Mind Medical School and by many independent biofeedback researchers, Brain Sync sound waves have shown many powerful brain enhancing benefits. Binaural beats are one of the most effective brainwave entrainment tools to reduce pre-operative anxiety, enhance healing,

Today, millions of users listen to Brain Sync tracks to improve the effects of cognitive performance, encourage deep sleep, reduce anxiety, relieve chronic pain, improve short and long-term memory and so much more.
