Isochronic Tones – Should You Buy Isochronic Tones?

In an earlier post, Isochronic Tones – Why Isochronic Tones Beat Binaural Beats, we looked at the superiority of this latest technique in brainwave entrainment. This article moves beyond technical comparisons and explores the exciting benefits of isochronic tones. Their potential is truly remarkable!


Whether your goal is relaxation with alpha brainwaves, greater concentration (including ADD treatment) with beta brainwaves, exploring the subconscious in theta, or exploiting the physical regeneration that accompanies delta, your goal will be reached quicker, easier, and more effectively with isochronic tones. While headphones are not necessary with this technology, using them will enhance your meditation session by cutting out unwanted distractions. Choose your destination wisely, because these tones work!


  • Free yourself from stress with powerful meditation sessions, attaining a relaxed alpha state in as little as ten minutes. The more you listen to these special recordings, the easier it will be for you to revert to a state of inner peace. You no longer need to be a hostage to the worries and pressures of everyday life that seem so inescapable in our usual waking state of beta.
  • Tap into the creativity of the right brain that runs rampant when the conscious mind is asleep. Come up with solutions to nagging problems that your logical mind cannot fathom. Encouraging theta waves on a regular basis will make the wisdom of the subconscious mind readily available through enhanced intuition.
  • Enjoy natural and healthy feelings of well-being without resorting to self-destructive habits like alcohol or drugs. The restoration of neuro-chemical equilibrium that takes place in the theta state will help you break free of addictive patterns of behavior.
  • Perform at your highest level and act with greater confidence. The performance-enhancing properties of theta brainwaves were demonstrated by a study involving 100 students of the Royal College of Music in London. Those exposed to theta sessions improved by one musical grade – and the gains were permanent.
  • Effectively treat Attention-Deficit Disorder by inducing beta waves if your natural tendency is to exhibit excessive theta. Most people need to spend less time in a beta state, but those suffering from ADD have the opposite problem. Isochronic tone recordings can induce beta brainwaves just as well if needed.
  • Repair your body on a cellular level by inducing the delta waves normally generated only during deep sleep. It is in this state – which many poor sleepers seldom reach – that DNA repair is effected. In an increasingly polluted world that threatens us with so many carcinogenic substances, our bodies need every opportunity to repair damage. If you’re not getting enough proper sleep, you need to spend more time in delta.

These are just a few of the many personal benefits attainable with isochronic tone brainwave entrainment. The value of these benefits far exceeds the remarkably low cost of these recordings, which can be downloaded over the internet in the comfort of your own home. Today, the results of years of neural research and advanced digital audio technology are available with an ease that would boggle the minds of earlier generations.

You can start experiencing some of these benefits for free with some high-quality samples from The Unexplainable Store. There is nothing more exciting than exploring the potentials that have always been within you!

Isochronic Tones – Why Isochronic Tones Beat Binaural Beats

Isochronic tones are the most sophisticated method yet devised to enable ordinary people to control their own brainwaves. For those of us who cannot spare the time to study advanced meditation techniques, or who cannot afford to set up expensive in-home biofeedback equipment, listening to recordings of isochronic tones offers the cheapest and easiest route to brainwave entrainment.

Many people are familiar by now with the basic concept of how external stimuli, whether sound or light, can induce a frequency-following response in the brain. This phenomenon can be exploited to our advantage, using sounds of particular frequencies to induce desired brainwave patterns. For example, someone having trouble sleeping might benefit greatly from inducing the delta brainwaves associated with deep, dreamless, and restorative sleep.

But what is the best technique for entrainment? Up to now, binaural beats have been the most widely used technology, and many online vendors of binaural beats MP3s have sprung up on the web. (Not all of these really know what they’re doing, but that’s another story!) Yet even the 1973 article in Scientific American that brought binaural beats to prominence acknowledged that their effectiveness is questionable. The author of that article, Dr. Gerald Oster, found binaural beats to be as perceptible as 1/10th of a whisper – essentially subliminal. This makes them easy to blend with pleasing relaxation music, but is not a recipe for powerful entrainment sessions.


Whereas binaural beats require the brain to interpret two independent frequencies presented to the left and right ears through headphones, isochronic tones do not “ask” the brain to figure anything out and can be listened to without headphones if the user prefers. Isochronic tones are very well-defined, carefully spaced pulses of sound targeting the exact frequency desired for entrainment. They evoke a profound cortical response and can achieve the intended result much more quickly and deeply than binaural beats ever could.

Possible Disadvantages

For some users, isochronic tones may simply be too powerful, leading to headaches. A period of gradual acclimatization may be necessary. The larger issue is that the very sharpness of the tones makes them harder to incorporate into the kinds of music soundtracks with which binaural beats users are familiar. A session with isochronic tones is a more serious meditation session – a session with a purpose. It is for people who know exactly where they want to go, mentally or spiritually, and are determined to get there in the most effective way. Isochronic tones are a tool; they are not elevator music!

If you feel ready to take your meditation sessions to the next level, or you’re not quite satisfied with the results of using binaural beats, high-quality free samples are available at The Unexplainable Store.
