    I was thinking about getting it too. Seems kind of interesting. He also has another one called mind freek that has all this crazy stuff on it. Judging by the rviews it works for some and not for others. Go on wikipedia and research binaural beats which is what this is; this thing is like legit science, it's a real thing

    There are entire books about artists and writers knowing more about the brain than nerosientists (no offense salsamd:p).

    There's been music around for a long, long time that has the same effect. Whether you like it or not, Mozart often has this affect on people. If you want some to stimulate you brain in a similar way to those apps, listen to some Sigur Ros, especially their weird b-sides. You'll be amazed how much they can help you concentrate.

    My all-time favorite album:

    I haven't tried MindWave but I do have Entrainment as well as several of the DSRTech Affirmation apps. They do work if you have an open mind about such things.

    i use mindwave and mindfreek on a daily basis, mindwave more so.

    the headache relief one works wonders for me and the virtual coffee one gives me an instant "boost"

    the mindfreek app has one called crazy high and while it doesnt make you feel high in the traditional sense, you do feel...different. my legs start to tingle every time.

    also, i use it for inducing astral projection, which i could already do before hand, but by getting my brain wave into the zone already, i find it very easy to do so with the aid of the program

    i would highly suggest them

    Ok so I played around with Mind Wave for a bit and Im honestly not sure if it actually "works." I didn't see any HUGE difference but it is pretty cool.
    Ill try it tonight for sleeping

    everyones brain is wired different. some people will have no use for the programs. it just sucks that the only way to find out is pay for it.

    ive been listening to weightlessness from mindfreek for the past half an hour and i feel like im floating off my chair, its bizarre

    Thought i'd create an account to comment on this..

    I downloaded mindwave because it sounded somewhat interesting,and I had Itunes gift dollars just sitting idle. I tried it over the course of two days, then deleted it.

    It is obvious to me these "biaural beats" are doing something , what exactly I don't know. The "sleep inducer" setting I tried on 3-4 occasions, and every time I noticed I would get random muscles either in my face or legs twitch. I did not feel tired, but rather concerned. The last time I tried it I stopped after about 2 minutes, after which I was left with an odd rythmic ringing in each ear that lasted about 10 minutes.

    I next tried the "creativity boost" setting, after about 3-5 minutes I noticed my heart was palpitating and banging very hard in my chest. I only tried it once, so I cannot say for certain that was the cause, although I have never had random heart pounding. I decided that was enough and never tried any of the other "beats", so I can't comment on those.

    On a positive note, I got my wife to try the "headache relief" rather then pop her usual advil, and to both our surprise it actually seemed to relieve her headache pain. She has tried it a few more times after that, and sometimes it does nothing at all and other times it seems to take the pain away. Placebo effect? I have no clue.

    Playing around with ones brainwaves seems a little..iffy to me. Try listening to classical music, that relaxes you plenty =) But if you are still so inclined there is a free application that has biaural beats in the app store if you don't want to pay for mindwave.

    Good luck..

    I too registered just to reply to this one. I've used binaural beat devices in the past relaxation/curiosity - the "brain machine" project in particular, and I've found them to be somewhat effective in simulating meditation and triggering mild closed-eye hallucinations.

    I downloaded both the mindwave and mindpulse apps and found them helpful as well. Mindwave's coffee, mental refresh, and headache modes seem effective in particular - just don't expect them to be as strong as caffeine/etc, they're quite different. They seem to work best while if listen with headphones while doing something else. Theta wave frequency seems to be the most helpful for me.
     
  16. i wonder if it's like this one brain wave generator program that i used to have

    i memorized the tone that they played

    then i played that tone in my head while trying color progression self-hypnosis and it made me "melt" into my bed

    a very unique sensation accompanied with my eyes rolling into the back of my head (while closed)

    eek

    memorized a tone?!

    I imagine actually 'playing back' the tone internally would be quite effective in syncing your brain up to it.
    Sweet - Not sure if I'm able but now I'll have to try!

    Try some free beats before you spend any money

    I've listened to binaural beats off and on over the years. A couple places that have been very helpful to me have been:

    http://www.healingbeats.com/play.html

    and

    http://www.iso-tones.com/tones.html

    The last one I mentioned actually features isochronic beats, which have the same effect as binaural beats but you don't have to listen to them in stereo as you do with binaural beats.

    My interest in binaural beats is for meditation and concentration purposes. I'm not really into the "weird" ones, so I can't help you there. But the ones I use are very effective at putting me in the state I'm looking for.

    If you're weirded out by the idea of listening to something that alters your brainwaves, I was too. But when you think about it, our bodies naturally respond to our surroundings. We yawn when others around us do. Women's menstrual cycles synchronize when they live in the same house together. It's hard not to laugh when you are among a number of laughing people (hence laugh tracks or live studio audiences on comedy shows).

    Likewise, our brains respond to sounds the same way. They try to synchronize with the "beats" and create a comparable brainwave to match them.

    I have the Mind Wave app. and I use it most often at bedtime. I found that the sleep induction setting was not relaxing enough. It would go from a low calming sound and then rise in pitch too much. I found that the deep meditation was better for me. I also use it once in awhile during the night when I'm having one of those nights where I wake up and my mind is going a mile a minute about the dumbest things. Then I use it for calming my thoughts to help me get back to sleep again.

    I haven't tried it for headaches yet or to give a mental boost so I'll have to try this soon. I like this app. I don't know if it really works or I just want to believe that it works, but I think it is worth a try to those who are interested.

    So last night i tried the sleeping one and (drum roll)
    It might of actually worked.
    Im not sure if its supposed to make you fall asleep faster or make you have a better sleep. For me I think that it made me have a better sleep. I didn't wake up at all and I felt really relaxed and energized when i woke up ;) All and all im still not sure if this is fact or crap.

    Oh and welcome to Touch Arcade guyz (or gals)
