A Review from a Meditation Junkie
on October 1, 2012
I am one of those people who have tried everything that relates to meditation and brain improvement. I've been listening to these two tracks for some time now and I thought that a good review is due together with a comparison between the different types of brainwave meditation.
There are two main types of brainwave entrainment out there. Binaural beats is one of them, the other one is isochronic tones. These two tracks are made with isochronic tones - you can easily recognize the beats while listening to the tracks. The beauty of isochronic tones is that you do not have to use headphones. They work well even if you only play the music in one ear because unlike binaural beats, the brain does not have to construct the beat. The frequency with isochronic tones relates to beat frequency - the frequency at which a tone is turned on and off. The brain, in turn, synchronizes itself with that frequency to produce the desired effect.
I've tried most of the brainwave entrainment CDs that have been on the market for the last 15 years. All of them are excellent and I think that it is a matter of personal choice which one works for you. These two are by far my favorites because of the great combination of very relaxing background and the strong tones that you just can't miss.
I've been using Schumann Resonance as a substitute of a power nap and it works like a charm, I can never stay awake while listening to it. Those like me, who are meditation junkies, know that a lot more is happening than a power nap - I am not exactly sure how the brain reacts to this stuff but it does help with clearing the mind and washing away the stress.
I noticed that the two critical reviews here were written by people who did not even purchase these tracks - I would recommend that they do.
And to summarize, here are the pros and cons:
-No instruction, no description, if you don't know anything about brain waves and isochronic tones, you don't know what you are buying.
-Not available in CD format - I would have loved to buy this as a gift
-Super relaxing background
-Strong beats turning on and off at a very relaxing frequency
-Numerous long term emotional and health benefits (generally typical for brain wave synchronization or powerful meditations)
-Very easy to use
-More relaxing and powerful than other meditations that I've tried
