We all know that meditation is great for you, both mentally and physically.
Some of the powerful, proven effects of meditation are:
So… why don’t we all meditate more regularly?
There are many reasons, such as boredom, inability to quiet the mind, frustration, lack of progress, or just no time to spare.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could enter meditation easily in mere minutes, stay there as long as you want, and enjoy it?
With Master Meditation Music, you can.
Master Meditation Music uses specialized sound waves to aid you in your meditative practice. You see, auditory stimulation has been has been proven to change the frequency the brain operates at in a process called Brainwave Entrainment (BWE) 6, 7. Furthermore, certain brainwave frequencies are associated with certain tasks, and strengthening those frequencies leads to significant performance improvements. So, BWE can lead to increased creativity 8, improved concentration & memory 9, reduced stress 10, anxiety 3, 4, headaches, pain, & PMS 11, and (you guessed it) improved meditation 5.
Using rhythmic sounds to slow down your racing brainwaves isn’t new– you can see examples of this in a variety of religious and cultural practices, including kirtan, chanting (Gregorian, Sufi and Menzuma), Hebrew davening, Native American drum circles and rain chants, and Tibetan prayer bowls. Though the practitioners themselves probably don’t know the profound effect their sounds have on the mind, most would probably describe it is as “peaceful, calming or relaxing”.
So why do we primarily use binaural beats (carefully controlled and different sound in each ear) when these music practices all use monaural (the same sound in both ears)? Because it has been shown that binaural beats have a stronger brainwave entrainment effect than monaurals 12.

Your brain is a highly complex electrical device. The electrical impulses that operate it pulse through at a certain number of waves per second (waves per second is expressed in Hertz, abbreviated Hz, where 30 Hz means 30 waves per second). Scientists have known for more than 100 years that the frequencies of our environment can directly influence the frequency our brains operate at. This can be done deliberately through a process known as “brain wave entrainment”.
So how do you use sound to “entrain” your brain? Just sit back, put your headphones on, and play the desired frequency, right? Well, unfortunately the human hearing range is from 20-20,000 Hz, and all the beneficial brain frequencies are below 20 Hz (including the optimum range for meditation). How does binaural music work around this limitation? By using ‘base’ frequencies you can hear to generate the desired frequency inside your brain. These base frequencies generally range from 100 to 1,000 Hz, with a slightly different frequency being played in each ear (incidentally, this is why it is important to wear headphones or earbuds instead of just listening to it using speakers). These two base frequencies interact in your brain to synthesize a different, entirely new frequency: the “phantom sound”.
An entirely new, different frequency (called the binaural beat) is created by your mind using the base frequencies as, well, a base. This “phantom sound” is equal to the difference between the two base frequencies that go into your ears. For example, if you wanted to entrain with a frequency of 6 Hz, you could use a base of 206 Hz in the right ear and 200 Hz in the left ear (206 – 200 = 6 Hz). This unplayed sound, unheard by ear yet perceived by mind, is the key to unlocking a deeper, more restful meditative state.
So one of the core principles that underlies M3 is binaural beats, which use the tendency of the human brain to sync with external stimuli to get the novice meditation practitioner in the same state of mind as meditation masters who have been meditating several hours a day for many years. Two base frequencies are used to do this, one for each ear of the listener, which result in a third, “phantom sound” that changes brainwave frequency speed gently and naturally!
Binaural beats sound (no pun intended) like a powerful tool for self-improvement, but what does that have to do with creating a deeper, more profound meditation experience? In a couple of recent studies scientists scanned and analyzed the brain wave patterns of long-term meditation practitioners as well as those of meditation novices. Unsurprisingly, they found a huge difference between the brain wave patterns and intensities. One study found much more intense brain waves in the highest range (the Gamma range) for veteran meditators, while another found that the lowest ranges (Theta and Delta ranges) were much greater as well. Fortunately, you can meditate “like a zen master” in minutes- our powerful Master Meditation Music uses binaural beats (among other things) to smooth out your brain waves quickly and easily.

Short answer: everyone! Long answer: anyone who needs to relax, would like to sleep less, would like to reduce stress, improve cognitive function, sleep better, lose weight, reduce depression, increase altruism, wants better control over themselves and their emotions, or just generally wants to be a more effective, happier person!
Short answer: yes, but it won’t be as effective. Long answer: the way binaural beats work (full details in the How It Works section above) is that the frequency played in the right ear is different from the frequency played in the left ear, and the beat we actually ‘hear’ is the difference between the two. If you listen to binaural beats music with external speakers instead of earbuds or headphones, some of the sound intended for the right ear is heard by the left ear and visa versa. The result? Less difference between what is heard by the two ears, which weakens the resulting binaural beat, which leads to less brain entrainment. In short, not using headphones or earbuds reduces the meditation-deepening effect of M3.
While there is no known risk from listening to binaural music, we do not recommend M3 for those prone to seizures or people with pacemakers. Also, we generally recommend you do not exceed 15-25 minutes a day to start (see How Much/Often Should I Listen to It?). Finally, the effect caused by binaural music requires the use of headphones or earbuds so that a slightly different sound can be heard by either ear. Unfortunately, if you are deaf in one ear or otherwise have severely limited hearing on one side, binaural music will not work for you.
You can listen to M3 anywhere you wish to meditate, be it a quiet mountain meadow, a beach, a busy airport or a loud, chaotic office. Wherever you are, M3 can help you to be calm and quiet your mind. However, you should never listen to M3 while driving, operating heavy machinery or doing anything else that requires alert focus.
M3 can used any time. However, it should not be used when you are driving, operating heavy machinery or any activity that requires your immediate concentration. Basically, anything you wouldn’t try to do while meditating you shouldn’t try to do while listening to M3. It’s in the name- Master Meditation Music is a meditation aid. Nothing more, nothing less. Also, it is important to realize that M3 will effect your sleep if you listen to it too close to bedtime. (How close is too close? This varies from person to person. Generally, we recommend at least 4 hours between last session and bedtime, but again, this is just a general guideline). This can be a positive or a negative depending on your unique situation and what track you listen to. For example, some users report that their most restful and deepest sleep comes when they listen to 0.5 to 4 Hz music within 30 minutes of bedtime (or fall asleep listening to it). However, tracks that end with a higher frequency (>13 Hz or above) make it difficult for some users to get to sleep in the first place.
We recommend starting out with 15 – 25 minutes a day, and then increasing your exposure when you feel more comfortable. However, you should always listen to your body- how do you feel after a meditation session with a particular track? Calm, relaxed, and energized? Or tense, irritable, or sluggish? Everyone is unique, and while we know which binaural frequencies are best for most people, you may have a different experience. This is one of the reasons why we include so many different tracks with our package- instead of forcing you along a predetermined path, we help you to find your own way.
Yes! M3 gently guides your mind to the same level meditation masters reach. It does this by using scientifically proven techniques to strengthen weaker brain wave frequencies that are already present in low levels.
There have been no documented cases of binaural music causing seizures in those susceptible. In fact, the only studies that have been done suggest that some types of music REDUCE the incidence of seizures.1 However, it’s always a good idea to use your own judgement, as other studies have shown that even doing certain types of math in your head can cause seizures.2 So, even though we don’t recommend M3 for people prone to seizures, it entirely possible, likely even, that certain binaural music might be very good for preventing or reducing seizures. In general, more research needs to be done in this area. Sources: 1 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3523174/, 2 “Seizures Induced by Thinking”, A. J. Wilkins, published 1982 in the Annals of Neurology.
