21 Powerful Mind Altering Binaural Programs to help achieve incredible states of mind. Includes Zen Meditation, Mindfulness, Theta Meditation & Lucid Dreaming.

Combine Mind Altering Binaural Sequences with Soothing Nature Sounds, Ambient Music, your own iTunes Music (with the built-in iTunes playlist creator), or Audio from apps like Spotify and Audio Book Readers. * Powerful Binaural Programs for Lucid Dreaming, Mindful Meditation, Dreamy Sleep, Astral Projection, Zen Meditation and much more! * Universal app with built-in UIs for iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch, iPhone 5/6/6+ * Different states of mind are associated with specific brainwave frequencies that would inaudible if played directly, but can be induced by playing two different audible binaural tones into each ear, which, after being processed by the brain, are perceived as an inaudible low frequency beat matching the target brainwave frequency. As you listen your brainwaves fall into step with this inaudible beat, and after several minutes synchronize with the target frequency.

Brain Wave Altered State uses the most advanced multi-stage binaural sequences available, combined with the flexibility to choose from a range of relaxing ambient backgrounds, other audio apps, or your own iTunes Music, allowing your mind you to relax and synchronize with your desired state. It achieves this using our unique process called Progressive Brainwave Entrainment.

*** Progressive Brainwave Entrainment ***

Progressive Brainwave Entrainment algorithms use layers of frequencies and carrier signals assembled in precise sequences to create profoundly unique experiences. Each program gently brings your brainwave frequencies to your desired state using a more natural frequency progression.

What’s New

Version 9.3

Thanks for making the BrainWave Series the Top-Ranked Binaural Apps in the App Store for 12 Years! * Headphones/Earbuds must be worn for Binaural Tones to be Effective.
* To combine Brainwaves and Audio from Another App use the "Other App" or "Ambience + Other" option for the Background Mode in Background Settings.
* Added the ability to play and pause audio using Remote Controls *only* when using Brainwaves with the "Ambience Only" background mode. In modes that allow other audio apps or iTunes Music to be playing these controls will only affect iTunes or the other app. This is because in modes where our app allows other audio to play that other app becomes the "Now Playing" app--and there can be only one "Now Playing" app on iOS.
* If the audio stops when the app is backgrounded or the screen locks please restart the device with a full shutdown as this is the result of low RAM memory which causes iOS to suspend background audio.

Daily Essential w/bugs

I love this app! I use it a few times everyday including waking up and bedtime.

I listen to it on n 15 min increments,
which is how I pace my morning activities. Periodically the timer doesn't start (or it will stop after :15 seconds), which I don’t discover until 20 or 30 mins. Also, when changing the timer (ex from 15 mins to 5 mins) the timer wont change. You have to press play and then change it. The timer has also randomly changed to 2 hours a few times.

These apps are so dynamic, allowing you to select your own background music or selecting from many great calming sounds.

You don’t need to wear earphones. I put speakers under my bed and go to sleep with it, wake up with it and sometimes put in on in the background while I’m working. The levels allow you to turn up or down either the music or the vibrations.

Sleep is better quality and I’ve started remembering my dreams again. I can use it to focus or get motivated in the morning.

Works for me!

I’ve never used a binaural beat or brainwave app before. I heard it helps with relaxation and sleep, two areas I have problems with. I’m a severe insomniac and find it hard to relax at night, but this app really helps! When I listen to certain states, I feel all tingly. I’ve never done astral projection before but I was able to achieve it the first time I used that brainwave program! I was able to fall asleep within 30 minutes and was able to recall much of my dreams once I woke up. Cheers to a healthy sleep schedule!
