Let's Know About
Binaural Beats ?

When listening to music with two tones that have different frequencies, the tones align with brain waves, producing another beat with a different frequency (Brennan, 2021). The new beat produced is referred to as a binaural beat. For instance if you listened to a tone of a 320 Hz in one ear and 328 Hz in the other, you would hear a 8 Hz tone, the binaural beat. There are five types of brain waves produced by different frequencies including beta, gamma, theta, delta and alpha waves (Brennan, 2021)
