Binaural sounds are said to help integrate the communication between the left and right sides of the brain. Binaural sounds are also said to be help with relaxation and meditation. This group is for exploring binaural sound effects. Although any results will be based on individual perception, and will probably not adhere to any "scientific" type of investigation.

A series of sound experiments will be conducted using sounds uploaded to the Music section to explore the possibilities. Click on the Forum Tab of this group to see the experiments.

I just joined this group and I can tell you Binuaral is real. Isochronics to even be more effective when mixed with binaural. Robert Monroe created the Monroe institute many years ago.After learning about mind machines from the bookMegabrain by Micheal Hudchenson. I bought one of Monroes tapes about thirty years ago, to create visions, and it worked. It opened a portal in time and allowed me to see into the future.I bought recently software on line called subliminal recording system, that came with a binaural system that allowed you to create whatever frequency you wanted, and add other recorded frequencies with it.It even created it into sound wave graphs. At first it was fun, such as combining inside the pyramid frequency with deep sleep. After listing to pinal gland activaters, I started feeling as though I was on mild psychedelics and living everyday all day long like that. The pinal gland produces DMT naturally whenever activated.All of this was fun , but I started thinking that, I really do not know, what the long term effects could be so I stopped experimenting.At that time I was also using a tens device ( using a frequency meter to set it to whatever frequency Iwanted). I was able to help other people suffering in pain, setting the tens device to 38 htz, and using binaural and isochronic tones for sleep and pain, and watch them fall asleep within minutes.You can find many beats on youtube for free, by punching in- you tube binaural or isochronics, and whatever you are looking for such as pain, pinal gland activation, or whatever. But again I warn you that no one knows the long term effects, for instance, one particulail pinal gland activater would cause me to jerk all night in bed after listening to it.I have used ones for sexual arousal that work better then Viagra. I have used ones for concentration in classroom settings that put me at the top of the class. But the true question is, how do you experiment on the brain, when you really do not know what you are doing?

I think it would be great if everyone who joins this group and practices meditation while using the audio method of binaural beats/holosync could keep a brief journal of their experiences and share with others in the group. Several times I have joined a group on the Intention Experiment and was very interested and excited about the subject matter....and then after about 6 - 10 posts...it seems to be done. I'm not sure why that happens and my observation has no reflection on the Administrator of the group. We have all come here for a reason and we can all learn from and gain from each other's experience. This is a subject that I am very much interested in, however; when I look at the last post- it's dated almost a year ago....Maybe I'm behind the times and maybe nobody else is still interested in the subject. I have meditated off and on for a number of years--unfortunately, it's usually at a time period when I'm so stressed that I feel I must take an active roll in relieving/controlling my stress. When I look back, I think why do we wait until we reach such levels of stress/discomfort before we take action? Why don't we keep up this practice? Most of us know it's beneficial. I know it's beneficial to me when I allow myself the time to do it. Do you benefit and if so, how? If you are participating and keeping notes, maybe you could also list the source that you are listening to--so that we could find out which companies/products seem to be generating the best results. I have used several different audio's over the years and over the last 2 or 3 years have been meditating on my own with breathing and chakra balancing techniques with no audio-just me. This past week, my Father-In-Law passed away, unexpectedly. I was stressed. He and my Mother-in-Law were supposed to come and visit next month. It would have been their first time to visit in 22 years. Please post if you think you are willing to share your experience. I am interested in researching this topic. Thanks!

Teresa, one of the things I like to use is Musical Rapture. It is free to download in MP3 format. It is purely music, but done in such a way that the musical notes often have a binaural content.

I listen to this almost every morning while in the shower... I know that sounds like TMI; however, I like what it does to the water!

Hi all. I have been a member of the community for several months now, but am just learning my way around.

I've been using Binaural Beats for several months now. There are several iPhone apps, some are free, where you can tune into the desired effect, sleep, meditation, relax, active, energize, etc. They are said to work for migraine, but I have not success as of yet. What I have used them for is that same as Stan Ellis, which is to meditate. I find it easier to concentrate on the sound than trying to stop the 'chatter.' Another use I have found is that I run beats in the background while listening to self guided hypnosis. You can find these on the internet on a variety of topics. Frankly, I find that I get better result if I do hypnosis this way. They suggest listening to 7 days in a row, but I have been able to implement changes in as little as one or two sessions.

The third experiment, Recognition Of Binaural Sounds can be found here. There is a recording of some rain with an underlying binaural sound. At each 5 second marker, the binaural sound is increased and/or the rain sound is decreased. The experiment is to show at which levels, you are able to detect the binaural sound. There is a poll here to record your responses.

The second experiment can be found here. It is a true binaural sound generated by a 440 Hz. tone in the right ear and a 435 Hz. tone in the left ear.

Perhaps this will prompt and inspire me to explore the tinitis that I experience 24/7. So I will have you to thank, Dean, if I gain any understanding in that area. It will be wonderful to be part of such a collective study with people I admire from afar.

The first experiment in the "Exploration Binaural Sound Effects" group can be found here is not a binaural sound at all, but an attempt to demonstrate how the mind processes sounds. In a stereo sound, each ear connects to one side of the brain. Both halves of the brain have to communicate with each other in order to determine which direction a sound is coming from.

The way it does this is by measuring the sound arriving at each ear. When the brain identifies the same sound in each ear, it attempts to measure the time delay in order to determine which ear detected the sound first. For instance, if the right ear detected the sound first, and the delay is very short, the sound will be determined to be coming slightly to the right of directly ahead. If there is correspondingly more delay between the detection time, the sound will appear to come more and more from the right, until at some point the separation will become great enough that it is actually detected as two different identical sounds.

Experiment 1 is a recording of some crickets with some clicking sounds. I took the same recording and placed one on the right channel and one on the left channel. then I delayed the left channel by a few milliseconds, otherwise they are identical in content and strength.

Try the experiment and let me know if you believe the clicking sounds are coming from the left, the right, or centered.

Please leave your comments on the thread fro that experiment here.
