About: Binaural Beat When two sounds of nearly similar frequencies are presented, one to each ear, with stereo headphones or speakers, the brain integrates the two signals, producing a sensation of a third sound. This third sound, called a binaural beat, encourages brainwave activity that matches the Hemi-Sync sound frequency patterns.  For example, a Hemi-Sync® relaxation tape encourages the brain to create a beat that results in brain waves that are naturally characteristic of a relaxed state. A sound played in the left ear is heard as a single tone.  (e.g. 100 hz) A slightly different sound played in the right ear is also heard as a single tone.  (e.g. 104 hz) When played together through headphones, the vibrato perceived in the brain is called binaural beating. The beat perceived is the difference between the two tones played in the two ears. (E.g. 104 hz - 100 hz = 4 hz) If you would like technical information about how Hemi-Sync® alters states of consciousness, click here.
