Biography

Binaural Beats are also known as Binaural Tones. They are sounds/tones which produce specific stimuli in your brain, but that will not suffice so lets dive into them more deeply.

How Do Binaural Beats Work?
Basically, your brain when perceiving two tones with subtle differences between them (or with frequencies slightly different than each other) will pick up the difference between the two frequencies when the difference is < or = to 30Hz.

When this happens, the brain will hear this difference as a binaural tone/beat.


But this is where they effect the brain.

You have probably heard of all the different brain waves which tend to correlate to different patterns of thinking. The breakdown is below;

Gamma Waves (> 40Hz) are usually associated with fear, perception, problem solving and strong mental activity

Beta Waves (13-39Hz) are associated with busy/anxious or nervous thinking, active concentration, paranoia and arousal

Alpha Waves (7-13Hz) are associated with a state of relaxation while being fully awake. Possible pre-sleep, REM sleep, & Dreams

Theta Waves (4-7Hz) are associated with deep meditation, relaxation and NREM sleep

Delta Waves (<4Hz) are the product of deep sleep, loss of body awareness


How does this relate to Binaural Beats?
Remember the part about the difference between the two frequencies creating the binaural beat you hear in your brain? Well, if the difference created from two frequencies is say 10Hz, then your creating a binaural beat which will help to stimulate Alpha Waves in your brain.

    it's not meant to "force" or induce sleep, it just is another encouragement for your body to sleep in the frequency of the Binaural beat. it's not like a sleeping pill guys. more like a comfy pillow :)

    I actually listened to one that was supposed to induce REM sleep, and I did have some vivid dreams that night. I'm gonna try it again some time.
