Binaural Beats are an audio stimuli that utilize sub-audible frequencies to synchronize the left and ideal hemispheres of the brain to a desired brainwave pattern and impact.
Earphones are essential when listening to binaural beats to acquire the full benefit. Binaural beats work by playing 2 separate audible frequencies into each ear. The distinction of those frequencies is the binaural beat frequency.As an example,
to reproduce a sub-audible 5Hz theta frequency you could play 200Hz in the ideal ear and 205Hz in the left ear. The difference in frequencies develops a “wub” or “beat” sound that occurs in the listeners brain. This works similar to a tuning fork to help entrain the brain to the wanted frequency pattern. Theta range audios in specific are understood to assist listeners in reaching much deeper states of meditation.
