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!
myNoise.net provides two binaural beat players. The carriers on this one have been set to harmonic frequencies and produce pure binaural beats.
Brain Waves (brainwaves) Entrainment
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:
the Delta waves, when deep sleep occurs;
the Theta waves, associated with a state of somnolence and reduced consciousness;
the Alpha waves, when we are in a state of physical and mental relaxation;
and the Beta 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.

Beautiful, calming sounds. I use this preset in between study sessions to relax my mind.
♥ I AM SO HAPPY someone developed this. Everyone needs this everyday. Remember that everything is vibration and your entire being is shaped by sound from the dense body to your thoughts. This is the best form of healing and mind mastery at your finger tips and it is free.
♥ The infinite study state of mind. Stable, relaxed, alert.
♥ I use this one pretty regularly for writing. I need focus to contend with a slight case of ADD but also need creativity, so this preset seems to help.
♥ Combine with Data Centre to block out office numpties!
♥ Sounds like a choir singing. Really beautiful and helps me focus.
♥ I'm doing homework with this playing on the background, I don't know why but it surely helps!
♥ Working on an essay to this, low tolerance to beta waves so made them very light.
♥ Super soothing. Instantly nips panic attacks in the bud.
♥ Amazing!! The sound helped keep my anxiety and OCD at bay.
♥ I quite like this setting. I pair it with Osmosis, and I find it incredibly comforting.
♥ I'm just gonna leave this comment here so I can keep a tab on my preferred setting. No Beta waves because they make me uneasy. I am doing thesis work and this really helps me keep my head. I use it with Singing Bowls and damn, it's soothing!
♥ The first time I listened to this it felt annoying, the idea it could help with a migraine sounded laughable. But then I got a debilitating mindnumbing migraine and decided to give it a try (after nothing else worked). When I played with sliders I could feel how different areas of my brain responded to different frequencies, how pain was changing or disappearing. And the effect lasts! Wow!
♥ Serenity. Pure calm. This is something really hard to experiment for me due to OCD, but this generator achieves it.
♥ I have dealt with debilitating mental illness all my life. When the noises in my head get too overwhelming, this generator is one of the things that has helped keep me somewhat sane. I cannot thank the creator of this site enough. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
♥ This one is SO relaxing and really gets me into sleep mode. The "beats" go slow, and then speed up until they disappear, and then come back. So cool!
♥ Burn your brain down into a state of calmness and become relaxed.
♥ Makes you feel at ease and great for studying or meditating.
♥ This helps me relax, but also keeps me focused. A good balance for me.
♥ I have migraine and cluster headaches, which is a huge issue for me. And while no replacement for my meds, I have found that listening to this on the calm setting helps me manage the pain, which is great. I didn't expect it, but it's really nice.
♥ High alpha + Low beta, this setting is getting me to the right point where I'm focused but relaxed.
♥ The Animate feature is pretty cool!
♥ I find this particularly nice to listen to before I sleep.
♥ Awesome! Try with dark water for amazing calmness!
♥ I have attempted to reproduce the sound of OM using the binaural harmonics. Just for fun.
♥ After listening for about 5 minutes, the back of my head began to throb a little then tingle... Never had this happen before :D
♥ Helps even the energy flow - smooths it. Also very calm and easy to hear.
♥ Kind of hypnotizing. Love it!
♥ I have really bad ADHD and this noise helps me focus. I use it so often I ordered it as a sound file.
♥ Best of all worlds.
♥ ← Seriously mind-bending and scary, if that's you're thing.
♥ Really helps induce lucid dreams!
♥ This starts out easy, but gets mind-blowing, and you feel like getting mind controlled.
♥ Listened to this and some calming music, studied for hours before needing to refill my coffee. Very invigorating.
♥ Uplifted, focused, and even a bit tingly in the extremities after a few minutes. Quite invigorating.
♥ Press animate and this turns into an EPIC brain massage.
♥ Focus with a bit of zing
♥ Would to see a section on people's favorite settings. Editor's note : that is exactly what this section does!
♥ I put this on a low volume and played the church generator on animate and wrote my entire mythology paper. Great for keeping me focussed!
♥ This setting induces so much fear in me. Listening to it makes me want to cry and rip the headphones off.
♥ ← I call this one "Alert Balanced". It's getting the alert, awake tones in while keeping you calm and relaxed.
♥ This makes me feel at peace.
♥ Only thing I can compare this combo to is a deep tissue massage for the brain. Does wonders for my stress migraines.
♥ I'm currently reading Steven Levy Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution and it's said that MIT engineers used to works 30 hours straight on their mainframe which seems incredibly impressive. I need to finish my open source project and I'm very late so I made this settings to avoid falling asleep and see how much times I can work without taking break.
♥ I love this setting! Some of the other ones make my ears itch (weird I know) but this one is just right for studying or righting this big research paper!
♥ I like this mixture, it helps me focus on work and helps drown out most of the noise in the office.
♥ Tibetan Didgeridoo ... enjoy!
♥ This one is nice, its like a loooong wave, but it has multiple peaks, just when you think you've reached the end of a cycle, they combine in a new way!
♥ I made a little song cycling from the Odd to the Even to the all harmonics to the 5 carrier and it was beautiful. Thanks so much guys. I look forward to contributing. Stay Phenomenal Family!
♥ This is fantastic, it puts me in a little bubble where my brain is completley concentrated on the task I'm doing. I'm currently learning pages of French and this just seems to make it easier. I would recommend this site to anyone who is doing exam or is stressed, which is all of us at some point!
♥ ← This beautiful waveform is a 6.9hz high transient theta using all 10 carriers. Mix with any drone :-)
♥ WOW, I am starting to love this. I helps me getting rid of my stress from school and headaches that I sometimes get during the month.
♥ I fell asleep perfectly listening to this.
♥ This setting is the best.
♥ Long working hours with this as a background to some tibetan bowls. Calmed, fluent, focused
♥ This sound helps me be at peace :3
♥ This setting keeps me relaxed and focused for homework: the low, calm tones keep me from getting stressed, whereas the almost inaudible beta tone keeps me focused and on task. I LOVE this site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
♥ This is my happy place it calms me down from the stress of the day
♥ So awesome for Homework.
♥ Literally music to my ears :)
♥ Gentle, Alert, Content. Like coffee and a piece of chocolate. What better way to bookmark than to share with others!

♥ ← Try this setting! Very interesting
♥ This is the most relaxing noise I could ever think to manufacture.
