Pure tones played together interfere with each other when they are close in pitch but not identical. When each tone is sent to a different ear, there will not be any physical interaction between the waves, yet your brain still creates an interference inside your head: the so-called binaural beat. In order to create a binaural beat, each ear must receive its dedicated signal. Therefore, binaural beats only work through headphones.
Most binaural beat generators on the Internet use two carriers: one for each ear. We use 10 of them instead, creating the most complex beating patterns ever produced online! We also use the purest sine waves generated from a professional test tone generator, ensuring the clearest and deepest beats.
Activating the motion feature ever-changes the beating patterns, entraining various brainwaves frequencies one after the other. Have a try!
A word to the purist here. This binaural beat generator offers ten carrier frequencies, but humans only have two ears! Therefore, carriers on this generator will produce amplitude-modulated beating patterns inside each ear canal. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as it increases the perception of the overall beating pattern, and helps our brain catch up with the binaural beat. This explains why this generator produces stronger beats than any other available. If you are looking for a pure binaural beat generator instead - one without any intra-aural interference but a weaker stimulus - try our Harmonic Binaural Beat Generator; its carriers have been set to distant frequencies, in order to suppress any amplitude modulation between carriers.
Brainwaves are electrical activity patterns caused by the neurons of the brain communicating with each other. Brainwaves can be detected using sensitive medical equipment such as an EEG. They provide an indication of the mental state of an individual.
Brainwaves are divided into four main categories: thewaves, when deep sleep occurs; the waves, associated with a state of somnolence and reduced consciousness; the waves, when we are in a state of physical and mental relaxation; and the waves, emitted when we are consciously alert, or when we feel agitated or tense.
Brainwave frequencies are in the range of 0.1 to 4 (Delta), 4 to 7 (Theta), 7 to 13 (Alpha) and 13 to 30 (Beta) cycles per second (Hz).
Brainwave entrainement (or synchronization), aims to cause our brainwave frequencies to fall into step with a periodic stimulus having a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state. This can be used, for example, to induce sleep. This page uses binaural beats as auditory stimuli.

I fell asleep while listening to this last night. I haven't had such a good night's sleep in quite a while. Thank you for this!
I have been using the purple for my dysautonomia. It has been very helpful. Thank you.
OOOOO got the chills! I listened for a bit and then it got hard to breath! Woah!
I was kind of skeptical of this, but it seems to really help me focus and not get distracted when programming or digging into data. I put it on pretty low and play a Spotify coder/developers focus music list overtop of it, the hum goes well with the ambient sounds of the playlist and I am in the zone!
← This will make your mind go blank after a while... Test and see what helps you!
Try humming with your headphones on.
I found the Binaural Beat Machine to be my #1 focus tool. I have ADD/ADHD and am too easily distracted when I really want to focus. I turn on the binaural beats using the 16b preset for focus and turn down the volume so it's just barely present to my ear. I couple it with some classical music and am able to focus on what I want for extended periods. This literally has changed my life. Thank you!!
I've beeen training in self-hypnosis for a while (under supervision and for a reason) and found that the 8-4 Hz beats put me very quickly in a deeply relaxed state. Definitely the thing! With the timer, I can shut them for the real self-hypnosis. I haven't tried the other beat generators yet, but this one works much better than I expected and clearly does the job. In a few words: I'm impressed!
← Guaranteed relaxation and peace of mind. Made me fall into a trance where I was very concentrated, and relaxed. (32Hz)
Wow. Listening to this makes me feel really dizzy after a while. Like my eyes are moving randomly. Kind of fun, actually.
Second day I'm trying this generator (same for the website itself) along with a fire noise generator as a noise blocker while studying and it really helps me stay focused. Results are amazing, you should try it!
Not quite sure what setting I started off with but I started laughing uncontrollably after one minute and as a plus I started to feel tingly. Haven't had the effect since the first time but it does still help me focus and wake up if I'm drowsy.
← your mind just goes blank after a while...
At 56, I have tried many a thing. The default setting of Binaural Beat Machine does make me very relaxed. But it's not what it does on the moment, pleasant as this might be. It is the quality of the sleep, when I use it for half an hour before going to bed. I sleep a deep, restful sleep. I use it during day-time meditation as well, and the clear-mind feeling about an hour later is wonderful!
I put on the 24hz and seems that I have been able to work without falling asleep. I usually have been having trouble concentrating lately. Seems that maybe this binaural thing is actually working. I have been working for about 4 hours now. Usually I find it hard to concentrate for more than 20 minutes.
Loved it, I love drawing stuff but couldn't get creative work. After playing this with some grey noise on the background for like 30 minutes, my head started tingling and my hands were like asking for me to draw something. Thanks!
I've suffered from patches of insomnia throughout my life, extending from a few days to dragging on for several weeks, and no amount of the usual proper "bedtime ritual" normally recommended, calms me, as my brain is overactive. Layering combos of the Binaural/Bilateral sounds right before sleep effectively resets me, allowing me to sleep like a normal human. I can't express enough gratitude!
This with the White noise playing in the back really helped me focus in class. I have a huge research paper due on Friday and I'm not really close to being done... Anyways.. Great for focus and studying!! Even just by itself, but I suggest the white noise with it if you wanna concentrate and block out noise.
This will make you feel dizzy and giddy after a little while! It's audio NOS. Try looking at optical illusion patterns while listening. I highly advise staying seated while listening to this setting. Woo. :D *giggle*
Things got a little stuffy when I gradually switched from 6 Hz to 24 Hz while listening to Crazy In Love, the 50 Shades Of Grey version. Earthshattering.
Playing these tones along with White Noise blocks out just about everything. I don't even realise that I end up studying for hours at a time.
I suggest listening to this while playing the Kronos Explorer Series by the Kronos Quartet. Amazing for staying on task while studying.
This helps you fight depression and daydream while staying awake.
Late night focus. Especially good for pressure headaches from insomnia and all-nighter study/gaming.
32 Hz is my favorite. Kills anxiety like no other. I share the link to this site on my facebook all every so often and have shown my friends: they like it too! Definitely the best genorator on the web.
Something about this tone really zones me out, it's fantastic. Play it normal or animated and it's great.
← This is crey
I love this site! Tried the 16hz with Deadmau5 and all I can say is, it totally harmonizes. Puts me in a good mood.
Imagine a really bad ringing in your ear and the pain that it brought along or when your ear was throbbing with pain. Can you remember the sound coming from that ear? Probably not, since the pain was probably far more memorable. This sounds very similar to that, but it is not at all painful. Quite a unique experience, really. Try it out, but you need to be wearing earphones and have the volume up.
Listening to Techno, House music with the 24Hz setting in the background makes me feel so euphoric! That is so fantastic!
OH YEAH! This sound makes me board the Science Spaceship and travel through the Mysteries of the Universe! It's the power of Sblaic and I love it. Thank you.
Very good, and relaxing brainwaves. I have been looking for them for too long, now found this and those are good. Very good.
Makes my brain actually pulse. Feels very nice.
Try this setting running in the background, while Johann Sebastian Bach's Suite No.1, BWV 1066Ⅰ Ouverture is playing in the foreground. It really stimulates mental clarity. Enjoy! :)
Taking the 16 HZ setting and combining it with a playlist of chilled out deadmau5 songs produces interesting effects, my right arm slowly began tingling and I eventually became rather focused on the task at hand. To be honest, although I don't go in for placebo and homeopathic remedies, the feeling I received from this combo made me feel... Alive... For the first time in a long time. It was nice.
Played the 16 Hz with some Deadmau5... holy crap
I'm a tired law student always looking for a study boost. I like to put on the Alpha waves and mix this with classical music for research and writing. The "beats" help to drive the music and add a feeling of focus and energy even during slower/softer passages. If you get the levels matched properly, you never even hear them. Throw in a cup of coffee and you'll be ready to save the world. Cheers!
I'm hearing this with heavy metal. I don't know what's going to happen...
← should keep you awake
When I learned about Binaural beats and found out how you can influence your state of mind, I utilized them for most of my college studies. I play 16Hz Beta waves behind my favorite study music. I've been using them for 3 years now and they help me stay focused longer. Just make sure you have quality headphones that can reproduce the frequencies accurately. 2Hz does make a difference with an EQ.
Really helps me stay focused when having to do homework
That is powerful. I was falling asleep one moment, fully awake the next!
This sounds like a headache feels... like the pulses of pressure in your head. This version is actually soothing though.
I made a washing machine out of "fear". It's peaceful.
Scary. It makes my heartbeat soar and fear creeps in my mind.
Tried out the "Fear" preset with a bit from the "Trainspotting" soundtrack. Just... Woah.
Great for focusing while working, and has the advantage of being a Major 3rd interval (or the enharmonic equivalent - a minor 6th as I hear it) so there is a familiar musicality about it. A Major 3rd is a pleasant, consonant interval, so I find this less intense and uncomfortable than some other binaural pulses can be.
Goes back and forth, my chest starts to feel tingly and then my arms get heavy.
Wow, 30 years of insomnia cured!
It feels like a circular brain massage. Trances me right to sleep.
Achievement Unlocked: Give Yourself ASMR Whenever You Want. Amazing :D
Throughout the day I listen to high volume Theta 6hz with equal base and a low volume of alpha 8hz and the result is calm and relaxing. If I sit down I pass out within a few minutes.
Nothing quiets my thoughts and puts my mind at ease like this machine. Falling asleep has never been easier.
I hate this but it shush my colleagues noises :)
Without question, the 6Hz fantasy setting WORKS. I had it running quietly alongside 16Hz and 24Hz , and kept getting lost in daydreams. I dropped the 6Hz slider and in minutes I was back on track. Astonishing.
Listen to 10 hertz if you're feeling sad! Within 2 minutes you will start laughing uncontrollably.
It sounds just like an at-rest heartbeat. Such calming and focused energy!
This gave me a wonderful calm and yet it made me feel a bit sleepy but got me to 'the zone' while studying... Play with some mellow piano in the background and you've got homework heaven!
If you listen carefully, just for a minute or two, the sounds will make you feel relaxed so much that memories come flying everywhere at once. It feels like an ethereal heartbeat or the heartbeat of the universe.
Feels a bit like MK Ultra, but it's nice.
This has helped us through a difficult time, we feel like new men. New people, ready to take up the mantel of our elders.
← a 95hz tone nine carrier binaural. Mix with a 3k sweep for use as a sedative or pain killer.
Thank you so much for making my life easier! Love this website!
The focused setting is wonderful! I used to be trapped in an endless loop of web surfing and constant distractions, just glancing at my homework from time to time, but now I can actually sit down and write several pages of an essay without tabbing away or losing my focus.
The 2Hz deep sleep setting absolutely lives up to it's name! 10 minutes of it and I can't keep my eyes open!
Should I put fear on in the background while playing spooky video games?
I used to not be ale to sleep due to hyperactivity. Not any more!!!
Wow, the 8 hz relaxation setting literally has a tranquilizing effect. I felt like mush (in a good way ;). At first it sounds like the opposite of relaxing, but stick with it.
Using the focused setting, I have completely changed my study/homework habits. My ADHD self was able to finish 4 assignments in one sitting! Thank you Dr. Stephane!!!
This was a WOW experience for me. Before I found this website, all I could focus on was... you guessed, nothing. This website really helped me, thanks for the wonderful sounds.
This allows me to focus on my work at night; normally, I would be a walking zombie then.
Now I understand why I used to go to sleep with Pink Floyd's 'Welcome to the machine', an almost 2 Hz binaural beat.
This is an odd sensation - but fun. It made me laugh - it's like a soothing massage in your head. Matt
I used to get frequent headaches. At first it was because I wasn't drinking enough water. Then they started coming back. A great friend introduced me to this site and this sound. Now that I listen to this sound, I rarely have headaches. Thank you!!! <3 <3 <3
Lately I have been getting a roaring sound coming from the back of my head. It sounds a lot like this, but listening to this helps a lot.
I like to use this sound to help me focus on the more emergent work. It keeps me calm but focused so when people come by every 5 minutes asking "is it done yet?" I won't rip their head off.
It helped me so much with my sleeping problem. Thank you so much!
I admit that I do not know much about brainwaves and can be swayed by suggestion (ah, the fickle subconscious), but since using this machine and sort of hiding the noise with other sounds or my own music so it is not so obvious to me, it has helped me get through my email correspondences and other online tasks with the focus that I need. Thank you so much for making this!
I had been having some trouble focusing, but listening to this noise helped me a lot! Also, if you listen closely, it sometimes sounds like music. :P -Some random girl that ended up here ^w^
I like to listen to this on low volume whilst listening to radio at the same time. It keeps me relaxed and helps me find things more funny, strangely enough. ¯\(ツ)/¯
(Pair it with Deserted) You step into your dreams, but something is wrong. A low hum haunts you. It comes from everywhere, and it keeps getting closer and closer. You try to escape by waking up, but then you realize - you can't.
This with sweeping pink noise in the background is my favorite noise to listen to at work. It helps keep me alert and focused on the task and even blocks out the noise from chatty coworkers. Since I discovered this combination, work days seem to pass by quicker and I get much more work done.
Thin apartment floors + downstairs neighbor who likes bass-heavy music = THANK YOU for the binaural beat generator. Not only are these beats relaxing and pleasant to listen to, the deeper tones completely block out the bass from my neighbor's stereo. We used to argue constantly over the noise but now he can listen to his music, I can listen to my beats and everyone's happy.
← I LOVE THIS MIX
Nice way to stay focused while learning.
This makes me feel great. I get great sleep, can relax, and just feel good over all! :D
It really helped me stay focused to write my huge essay!
I used the Alpha stage to think and meditate and used the Napoleon Hill technique of a council meeting. Whereby I imagine a group of my peers alive or dead, anyone that I want to think of. I am The chairman, I set the stage by asking the question. I imagine what they would say to me and advise in answer to my question of the night. It takes on a life of its own and will shock you. It's real!
I use this to focus while I do work.
On the nights where sleep eludes me, the 2Hz deep sleep binaural noise works wonders.
This with sweeping white noise gives me the PERFECT non-drowsy, creative focus for art, reading, and writing. Not to mention helping with depression and anxiety. THANK YOU SO MUCH MR. PIGEON!!
← Handsfree brain massage - bye bye headache
I use this to focus while I do work.
I really love the brainwaves gens and the focus setting really helps me stay attuned, but for some reason my girlfriend can't stand it. I guess it's not for everyone but it sure is for me!
This is so much better than caffeine! Keeps me alert, makes it easy to focus, and no crash later. Thanks!
I have both Multiple Sclerosis & Lupus, as well as Fibronyalgia. Chronic pain makes it impossible to rest, let alone sleep. The low tones of the binaural beats, animated, help take away the pain, and cause me to fall asleep. Thank you so much for creating this site, and free as well! Life often felt like a living hell before I found these wonderful 'beats'! =)
← Native War Beat. Helps me prepare for the day ahead.
I thought that this would give me a big headache, but that did not happen! Really clears my over-active mind up.
Makes me feel focused and creative and everything is smooth
I like to layer this over the sweep noise generator set to "animate". The constant under tone combined with the airy sweep noise is relaxing and helps me focus on tedious reading!
← Combined some Fantasy and Focus for some creative writing and art beats.
This sound, though strange and a little creepy, really makes me think. But, it can give major headaches, be careful...
This has literally been a lifesaver. I'm ADD and sometimes, no matter how much I want to settle to my work, I can't. Like there's cotton stuffed up the back of my skull keeping my analytical and creative sections of my brain from functioning. With the binaural beta waves, I finally feel my mind relax, the cotton easing out, and I'm able to WORK. I'm a little bit teary-eyed, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
When you have 6 year old nese to take care of a little meditation helps.
I don't know what it is about low notes to me, but they always help me meditate and can lull me to sleep.
Please make this into an app: wish I could sleep with it, but can't leave my laptop screen on. This is so amazing and relaxing!
It's calming and helps me clear my mind for studying.
Heartbeat in your head.

Each slider controls a particular frequency. Adjust sliders to induce a particular mental state. Mixing adjacent sliders works best.
Our brainwave generator specifically outputs frequencies that replicate the cycles of brain waves. By syncing up your brain with these frequencies, your state of consciousness will be altered.
Because of the strong and repetitive pulsating rhythms, people who are prone to seizures or epilepsy should not use our brainwave generator. Children and pregnant women should also use caution when considering using brainwave entrainment.
