Isochronic Tones vs Binaural Beats

Does isochronic tones reign in superiority compared to binaural beats in terms of brainwave entrainment? There are mixed opinions with regards to the effectivity of both technologies. Others prefer isochronic tones while others are more comfortable with binaural beats.

To guide you with your decision in what to purchase, here are some pros and cons.


Isochronic tones does not require the use of headphones since both speakers emit the same tones. Binaural beats on the other hand required the use of headphones because each speaker emits different frequencie and the brain 'hears' the difference between the two frequencies. Binaural beats cannot give you the brainwave entrainment you need if you do not use headphones.


The waveforms of isochronic tones are very distinct because the tone and silence are of equal duration making the target frequency very distinguishable. Binaural beats does not alternate to a silence level but only dips a little to a lower volume.

Which is more pleasant to listen to?

Isochronic tones emits a constant 'toot toot' while binaural beats sounds like a hum. There are people who are annoyed by the 'toot toot' so they prefer binaural beats.

I've tried both technologies but isochronic tones gives me a faster entrainment whereas binaural beats takes me a longer time before I reach the target frequency. Others experience the opposite.

How do you know that your brain are entrained?

When I do an alpha or a theta session, I yawn when I dip to the lower brainwave. Yawning is an indication that your brain is relaxing.
