Reaching a deep, super-pleasurable, highly beneficial state of meditation is easy with EquiSync's advanced brainwave technology. Just a few of meditation’s limitless benefits:→ Transcend the effects of stress
Backed by extensively researched, deeply featured, multilayered brainwave entrainment technology, EquiSync's powerful audio tracks are designed to help you unlock the limitless power of your brain & mind, creating the perfect mental, emotional, and physical environment to realize your highest potential.
EquiSync®: Constant innovation. Combined with our own independent testing, we have comprehensively examined hundreds of binaural audio scientific studies to make sure that all of the latest breakthroughs have been incorporated into EquiSync’s carefully engineered, highly precise design.
The highest quality, most advanced mental states are always available to you through EquiSync®. You can learn the basics about binaural audio below:
First discovery. First discovered by Austrian physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove in the mid 20th century, the last two decades have seen an amazing amount of scientific interest in therapeutic binaural audio technology - with more than 3,000 studies conducted to date.
Gaining significant ground within the scientific community. Today, this simple yet highly effective technology is used to create an unending list of positive mental states: meditation, relaxation, sleep, focus, creativity, and much more. Many researchers, doctors, teachers, scientists, and countless other professionals have endorsed this powerful therapeutic tool, while personally taking advantage of the limitless benefits.
How does binaural audio work? Put simply, when two precise, yet distinct sounds are introduced, one to each ear - the brain responds by producing low-frequency vibrations. The brainwave patterns then passively mimic the difference between the two tones, with the user’s state of consciousness following in-step.
Example. If 200 Hz is played in your right ear, and 190 Hz to your left ear, the difference between these tones (10 Hz) will be experienced as a very relaxing alpha wave. After a few minutes, your state of consciousness will mirror this particular 10 Hz brainwave, entraining your neural rhythms via what scientists call “Frequency-Following-Response (FFR)”. The countless positive mental, emotional, and physical benefits of the alpha state then become instantly available to you - inevitably followed by profound results.
Note: The design of EquiSync incorporates this very basic technique along with a handful of much more advanced proprietary techniques like Synchrowave Modulation, Deep Carrier Frequencies, Polyphasic Structuring, Harmonic Resonance, DeepMind Drum Therapy, and more. We encourage you to learn more about these features in the next sections.
On the most basic level, an isochronic tone is simply an audio signal that is turned on and off rapidly, creating a pulse effect that is extremely effective when used for therapeutic purposes.
A relatively new neuroscientific finding, this form of brainwave stimulation is known for leaving a deep impression on the brain. In fact, many in the field now hail these tones' bulletproof success rate of creating a deep, super beneficial state of meditation.
EquiSync incorporates this basic but effective technique to strengthen the coherence/amplitude response of the brainwaves during the meditative state, thereby deepening and expanding the benefits available to the user. You can see the basic structure of these sound waves in the image below:
EquiSync brainwave entrainment is delivered under tranquil ambient music and/or nature soundscape, with each being carefully tested to maintain a flowing brainwave pattern during your deep meditative state.
After years of our own independent testing, we created a cutting edge new feature: SynchroWave Modulation™.
This powerful innovation very precisely modulates the smooth ambient background music, directly in sync with the entrainment carrier signal, producing an even stronger meditative effect than more traditional entrainment methods like binaural audio.
This is a revolutionary, highly powerful new feature in our field of research, designed to bring you incredible meditative benefits!
EquiSync is designed with a feature that few other brainwave programs offer – deep carrier frequencies.
These smooth, oscillating sine wave frequencies enhance your mind’s ability to relax into a quiet and peaceful meditative state.
By amplifying the brainwave synchronization effects, deep carrier frequencies allow you to achieve a far deeper level of meditation, quickly, safely and easily.
Only the most expensive brainwave entrainment products on the market offer deep carrier frequencies, and only during the final phase of their programs.
As a result, these programs are often very expensive and require many months of practice to achieve the deep meditative states that EquiSync helps you to achieve in a matter of days and at far less cost.
As our scientific understanding of the world grows, certain ideas once thought fringe are now becoming mainstream. Today, the healing properties of certain sound frequencies are showing incredible promise.
Perhaps one of the most incredible experiments on the healing power of sound comes from a Japanese doctor and bestselling author, Dr. Masuro Emoto.
In his groundbreaking book “Messages from Water” he outlined his experiments into how positive/ negative/ harmonic/ disharmonic sound vibrations affect the structure of water molecules in many surprising and amazing ways.
He found that after exposing water to certain sounds, words, and frequencies, either incomplete, malformed or beautiful, highly geometric crystals would form, as examined under the microscope in their respective Petri dish during the freezing process.
Dr. Emoto concluded that all sound is vibration, and positive vibrations and precise sounds can indeed be a form of healing energy. As water based beings, we humans are indeed impacted by this powerful phenomenon.As the years and mounting evidence build, even the most hardened skeptics are opening up to the vast potential of the healing power of sound.
Armed with this growing body of research, EquiSync multi-layers the most harmonic frequencies known to science (including Solfeggio Frequencies, Pythagoreon Tuning, and more). The result?
Extremely beneficial effects on consciousness, deepening the meditative state to new levels, creating a sequence of changes that science is just learning to measure.
We believe this feature is one reason why so many EquiSync users continually report amazing experiences with the program.
When varying brainwave entrainment intensity, depending on the user’s level of experience, the so called "signal pattern" is of paramount importance. From a static, unwavering signal, to a multi-cycle, range sweeping pattern, EquiSync is a highly optimized program to forever upgrade your mental, emotional, and physical health, making an incredibly effective meditation session the standard.
Just as as an olympic athlete would incorporate a variety of protocols into his/her training regimen to increase the speed/ endurance/ strength of their body, EquiSync is a mental/ emotional/ cognitive toolkit designed to bring excellence to your brain/mind, from a variety of angles.
In fact, meditation is gaining huge popularity among professional athletes, with many at the top of their sport declaring their success is in great part owed to the age old mind practice.
Of course, you don’t need to be an elite athlete to experience the limitless benefits of meditation, countless people all over the world have used this technology to transform themselves from the inside out. We invite you to experience these limitless benefits with EquiSync!
Note: We have applied the incredible science behind drumming to a select number of EquiSync tracks. Quite a few users report these as their favorites! You can learn a bit more below:
Used for thousands of years, drum therapy is a time-tested method used to promote and maintain mental, physical, and spiritual wellness. In fact, scientists are becoming increasingly interested in these age-old rhythm healing techniques, with more and more academic studies verifying what our ancient ancestors have known through time.
Research has demonstrated the benefits of drum therapy for its ability to speed up physical healing, releasing of emotional issues, boosting the immune system, creating a deep sense of well-being, reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and allowing deep relaxation.
What Can Be Helped By Drum Therapy? Stress and all of its countless ugly derivatives, just to name a few: anxiety, addiction, chronic fatigue, depression, asthma, hypertension, chronic pain, mental disease, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, emotional disorders, MS, heart problems, & many others. Here are a few results of scientific studies showing the benefits of drumming:
Turn Off Stress Genes. As evidenced by countless studies, stress greatly factors into almost all disease. A landmark 2005 study published in the Medical Science Monitor found that listening to rhythmic drumming not only decreases stress, but also turns off the stress response genes believed responsible for most common diseases. Clearly, the implications for this finding are profound.
Liberate Emotional Blockages. Dysfunctional thoughts and feelings are thought by many to create "energy blockages", developing in time into emotional and psychological problems. Sound vibration can stimulate deep within each cell of the body, effectively removing blockages and allowing emotional release. In a key 2003 study “Drumming Out Drugs”, researchers concluded that drumming can rebuild & integrate emotional health, while facilitating self expression.
Naturally Release Endorphins. A UC-Irvine researcher discovered that drum therapy can boost the body’s natural painkillers and mood enhancers: endorphins and endogenous opiates. These highly beneficial neurotransmitters are best known for their ability to ease pain, lower stress, bolster the immune system, and slow aging. Rhythmic drumming does all this naturally, and when combined with meditation, can work wonders.
Double Alpha Brainwaves. A study by clinical psychologist Barry Quinn Ph.D found rhythmic drums to double the highly important “meditation brainwaves”, producing feelings of euphoria and advanced mental states. Drum therapy can bypass the sometimes steep meditation learning curve, condensing years of practice, allowing the limitless benefits of this age-old practice to proliferate.
EquiSync is built upon a precisely designed, perfectly balanced layering of multiple entrainment methods & techniques over its catalog of programs.
Listed are a few of these techniques:
Binaural Audio Technology
Deep Carrier Frequencies
DeepMind Drum Therapy
Finding the proper balance. EquiSync 1, 2, & 3 have incorporated and multilayered the above mentioned entrainment methods to various degrees. The foundation of EquiSync’s design is built here.
Focus on your favorites. It is important to note that each user is unique as to their personal preferences/ what they respond to best, in terms of meditative results.
In other words, if you discover that you really like a specific track then by all means focus on that one above the stronger tracks. The consistent user will see great results no matter which tracks they favor.
It is generally a good idea to be aware of the various layers comprising EquiSync audio technology. At the highest volume is the tranquil ambient music and/or nature background (calm ocean waves/ relaxing rainfall/ babbling brook, etc), carefully tested to maintain flowing brainwave patterns during your deep meditative state.
Next, you should hear a slight rhythmic volume oscillation, up and down, of the smooth ambient background music- synced directly with the entrainment carrier frequency. This is a new feature, and a very effective form of brainwave entrainment. At varying fractional volumes are the sub-layers of EquiSync, which contain the harmonic isochronic, monaural and binaural tones of our technology.
Though less prominently audible, these tones have a very beneficial effect on the brainwave patterns, whose distinctive architecture & construction are one of the many potent EquiSync proprietary secrets.
Please note: Not all EquiSync layers are listed on the chart above.
Quick Advice. If we had to give one piece of advice, do not try to listen to the brainwave technology or the ambient soundscape, focus on your breathing. Pay attention to how your thoughts intertwine with your breathing rate — the more relaxed you become via meditation, the less physiological impact your thoughts have on you.
After around 10 minutes of this, your brainwaves will passively mimic and sync with the EquiSync entrainment frequencies, easily guiding you into various states of meditation.

Your brain has nerve cells that fire electrical signals day and night, forming distinctive arrangements called brainwave patterns. These highly unique patterns are closely connected to your thoughts, emotions, moods, biological chemistry, everything you do, and really, everything that you are.
Because EquiSync® sound technology guides you into different mind states (and various states of meditation) via brainwave entrainment, it's helpful to understand the different frequencies and how they contribute to your state of consciousness.
Since most of us spend our days in the beta state, EquiSync excludes beta brainwaves, and entrains only those responsible for the most beneficial states of consciousness: alpha, theta, and delta. The two charts on this page illustrate the basic benefits of each brainwave state as well as the basic targeting of the EquiSync programs 1, 2, & 3.
