This is your brain on binaural beats
At the root of all our thoughts, emotions and behaviours is the communication between neurons within our brains. There are 5 brain waves, or electric patterns, that each person has.
Binaural beats, in short, stream a tone with a slightly different frequency into your left and right ear — say, 256 hertz (Hz) in one and 250 Hz in the other — they travel separately to your inferior colliculus, the part of your brain that gathers auditory input.
There, the tones “squelch” together into a so-called “beat” at a perceived, new frequency. (In this case, it would be 6 Hz.)

What is ASMR and how it affects you
Have you ever felt a certain tingling, relaxing sensation when someone brushed into your arm, or you listened to a particularly good song?
If so, you have experienced ASMR.
The Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response is a physical tingling sensation that begins in your scalp and moves down through the spine to the shoulders.
It is often triggered by an audible stimuli, such as whispering or scratching, though it can also be triggered through physical touch.Experience mental sensations

Sounds good to you, right?
Could it be even better?
Binaural beats + ASMR= B~ASMR
Studies results shown that combination of binaural beats and ASMR could be used for relieving negative emotions and increasing positive emotions for users.
Their findings suggest that this could provide an effective way of improving the quality of sleep, too.Get Started
