Has anyone had any experiences with Binauaral Beats (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binaural_beats)? I've tried the different frequencies, and they all seem to work. But, I've seen some for sale as MP3 files that are supposed to work like anti-depressants, stimulants, etc. But, I'm not sure if I'd want to buy them because I'm not sure if they'd work

I use them to tune (in orchestra, etc.), but that's about it.

I've used binaural beats as well as other brainwave entrainment products for years. I began using them mostly to help me relax as well as to help with sleep and I found them to work really well. Most of the recordings I've used recently have all been MP3 files from the Unexplainable Store and I have found them to be really good.

I haven't bought specific binaural beats to be used as an antidepressent or as a stimulant but I do think they can work that way. For me they take me "out of my head" and consequently I find that they not only relax me but take me out of the "fight or flight" mode which can be really stressful and depressing. So I guess I would consider them to work as an antidepressent as well. It would be interesting to try some that are specifically geared to tune into a so called "happy" frequency. Here are some articles on the subject that I have found interesting... http://www.binauralbeatsonline.com/category/articles/

I don't know if it's because I've got poor hearing or not, but I found that they have only varying degrees of success on me. Basically, it all boiled down to how much I was thinking about it. If I was at peace, and not focused on anything, then it worked. If I was any sort of focused, not so much.


Incidentally, I just used BitTorrent.
