What are Binaural Beats?

Binaural beats for super focus and deep sleep

Binaural beats consist of two tones being played with a slightly different frequency (Hertz - Hz), in each ear. These two tones are played rhythmically, one is slightly higher or lower than the other. The difference in frequencies creates the illusion of a third sound -- a rhythmic beat. For example, if you hear 14 Hz in your left ear and 14.5 Hz in your right, your brain creates a third tone of 0.5 Hz. This process creates brain waves, which may help you relax better or improve your focus.

Brain waves operate in 5 different frequencies.

  • Delta waves: Binaural beats in the delta pattern operate at a frequency of 0–4 Hz with links to a dreamless sleep.
  • Theta waves: Practitioners set binaural beats in the theta pattern to a frequency of 4–8 Hz. Theta patterns contribute to improved meditation, creativity, and sleep in the rapid eye movement phase.
  • Alpha waves: Binaural beats in the alpha pattern are at a frequency of 8–14 Hz and encourage relaxation.
  • Beta waves: Binaural beats in the beta pattern are at a frequency of 14–30 Hz. This frequency range may help promote concentration and alertness.
  • Gamma waves: This frequency pattern accounts for a range of 30–100 Hz. Very vigilant, high consciousness, memory

Most beneficial results will be achieved by using a headphone or earphones.
