Get to sleep quicker without using sleeping pills while blocking out the snoring, loud neighbors or distracting noises in the night with a AcousticSheep SleepPhone Sleep Aid System. Developed by a physician, these headphone help patients fall asleep and stay asleep and are held in place by a soft, fleece headband so they won’t fall off or cause your ears to ache after a couple hours of use.
The headphones are only part of the system as a CD of binaural beats are included as well. Binaural beats are waves generated by the brain when exposed to slightly different tones in the right and left ears. For example, if the right ear hears a tone of 100Hz (a very deep low sound) and the left ear hears a tone of 110Hz (just a tad higher pitch than the 100Hz), then the brain will combine those tones as one pitch, pulsating at 10Hz. The principle of how this works is just basic the basic interference pattern of sound waves.
Binaural beats are especially cool because as you listen to the pulsating beats, your brainwaves will slowly conform to the frequency of the binaural beats. So if you wanted your brainwaves to function faster, then just dial up the beats. If you want to go to sleep, then bring the tones closer together for slower brainwaves.
Not only is a CD included of binaural beats, but you can download additional binaural beats from AcousticSheep.
