Helps get the brain into a focused state first (40hz) and then progressively transitions into a relaxed state (6Hz). It’s a great way to start the day or to reduce stress and anxiety when preparing for something that requires focus (tests, exams, studying, bills, paperwork). This was inspired by experiments that have had success reducing stress and anxiety using Binaural Beats of 40Hz, 10Hz, or 6Hz for only 5 minutes. Other research has found that 40Hz beats for 5-10 minutes helps to increase focus. Listen to the entire 15 minutes. Your brain needs at least 5 minutes to synchronize. Most research suggests 15 minutes minimum. Some suggest 30 or 60 minutes, so see instructions below to enable looping if you want to play it longer.

The idea is to avoid interfering with the binaural beats. The music can help distract your mind, but there isn’t a lot of research on this technique. If you want the pure tones, for more intense brain entrainment, see the alternate version below. Alternate version with no music (pure tones). ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ 𝐖𝐀𝐑𝐍𝐈𝐍𝐆𝐒 & 𝐃𝐈𝐒𝐂𝐋𝐀𝐈𝐌𝐄𝐑 : See the WARNINGS & DISCLAIMER page. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ 𝐈𝐍𝐒𝐓𝐑𝐔𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐒 : 1. Use decent quality stereo headphones and make sure they are in the correct ears (left and right). Headphones with noise isolation are even better. 2. Only turn the volume up enough to hear the pulsing or wobbling effect of the Binaural Beat. Louder isn’t better and only risks damaging your hearing. 3. When trying to meditate or relax with the beats, close your eyes and try to clear your mind. Focus on the sound and let it take you away. 4. To get the most benefit, listen to the entire program because it takes time for the brain to synchronize. Most have unique progressions of carrier tones and beat progressions. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ 𝐑𝐄𝐅𝐄𝐑𝐄𝐍𝐂𝐄𝐒 : A skeptical systematic review, but I like this paper because the author presents the background very well and refers to several interesting studies.
