If you think that you are going to feel a little foolish listening to nothing, you can relax. (“Binaural Beats Meditation – All About Binaural Beats. Free …”) If you did listen to the beats by themselves, it would sound a little like a motorboat with its engine running underwater. Because that is not the most engaging sound to listen to, producers have created several different methods of masking that sound a little. (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”) Your ears may not be able to hear them, but your brain can.
Binaural beats are added to tracks of music that you can listen to as your brain does its work. The type of music changes to match the chief reason you are listening. For instance, if you want to listen to become more relaxed, then the music is more relaxed. If it is because you want to sharpen your focus, then the music upon which the binaural beats are laid on top of is more upbeat and steadier.

“The music also gives your conscious mind something to focus on as it relaxes and rests while your subconscious mind takes over.” (“Statement of Rights”)
Not all tracks are set to music. Sometimes they are set to white noise, or to sounds of nature. Occasionally the binaural beat sounds can be heard faintly depending on the producer’s decision. (“Statement of Rights”)
As you need to hear the separate sounds going into each ear, it is not enough to simply put the track on your stereo and play it into a room. You need to have stereo headphones on so your brain can experience the sensation of having the sine wave tones played into each ear. If you do not have stereo headphones, placing yourself between (not too loud) stereo speakers are the next best thing. (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”)
Even if your ears cannot hear them, your brain can. “These tones talk to your brainwaves and help them either slow down or speed up, depending on what your purpose is.” (“Statement of Rights”)
Why Should I use Binaural Beats?
Our poor subconscious mind has a challenging time in our busy lives. “We have both a conscious and subconscious mind and need to have both in ship shape order for our bodies to work well.” (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”)
“Our conscious mind is only able to do one thing at a time.” (“Statement of Rights”) It is the part of us that rationalizes and analyses everything. We need our conscious mind to help us to remember things we only need to store for a few moments such as telephone numbers or that you need to pick up milk and bread. This part of us is around all the time we are awake – talking to us and helping us function in our everyday activities. (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”) It is our analytical person, the part of us that sees everything from a very logical place.
“Our subconscious is busy too but is like the chef in the back of a huge restaurant.” (“Programming Your Mind With Binaural Beats – C.J. Hallock …”) You do not see them, but they are making all the great food to nourish you and help you enjoy life. It oversees all the mechanics of your body like your heart rate, and you are breathing. But it is also in charge of all those lovely feelings and emotions too. (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”)
The subconscious mind is also in charge of your memories and your ability to store added information in the right place so you can use it when you need to. Anytime you remember a special smell or memory, it is your subconscious helping you find it. (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”)
With all the busy-ness of our lives, giving your subconscious time to relax and reboot, to find space to put current information or just not be quite so anxious, is increasingly difficult. (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”)
Binaural beats help your subconscious have a chance to get that sorted. Because it is going direct to your brain, it manages to slip past that chatterbox conscious self and talks directly to your subconscious. It is particularly good for those who find straight meditation hard to achieve as it gives you something to focus on that your brain is doing automatically. (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”)
Because so much of our day-to-day life stems from the actions of our subconscious, making it easier to talk to it, by opening the pathways with binaural beats, makes a lot of sense. (“4 Questions You Need To Ask Before Using a Binaural Beats”)
