Mindwave’s potent binaural tones have been imitated since it’s first week in the app store, but the nearly 2000 positive reviews in US store can’t be wrong. Nothing comes close to this #1 way to get natural pain relieve, insomnia, help concentration, relieve stress and much more.

– Mix with songs on your iPod.

Now available on iTunes Music Store under Mindwave pro. Perfect for older ipods. Was #1 in Canada, Japan, Italy, Singapore and on it’s way in Sweden.

Mind Wave is a unique brain wave application that puts you to a certain state of mind. These Binaural tones help to improve the learning process, relieve headaches, help you fall asleep, relax and even get rid of bad habits like smoking, binaural tones are very useful for ADHD.

How it works: The easiest way of stimulating the brain is through ears. Other senses are often used as well like vision. The problem is that humans cannot hear low sounds, which are very useful for brain wave stimulation, that’s where a technique called binaural beats is used.

Let me give you an example of a binaural beat/tone. Right ear is given a steady tone of 400Hz and the left one is given 410Hz, these tones combine in your brain to achieve a 10hz difference. This 10Hz tone is totally formed by your brain. This can only be achieved when using stereo headphones since the right and left channels do not mix until in your brain.

There are four frequency stages:
●Delta (0.5Hz-5hz)
●Theta (4Hz-8Hz)
●Alpha (8Hz-14Hz)
●Beta (14Hz-30Hz

For example: Theta stage (4hz-7Hz) has been found to increase learning abilities. Children spend more time in theta stage than adults, which could explain their accelerated learning capabilities.

I hope you enjoy this brainwave entertainment application as much as I do. More presets to come every month.

●Can I use earbuds that came with iphone/ipod.
–Yes, these are stereo and work great.

●When should I listen to the tones?
–Best time is during the activity you want to accomplish. For example listen while studying, or while trying to fall asleep.

●There is static noise, is this from low quality sound?
— No, these static frequencies are intentional and have major effects on the potency of the tones.

●I got a headache after listening is it normal?
— Some(Very few) people may experience a headache the very first time they listen, this is due to neural change. Your brainwaves are adjusting causing a slight headache. Your next session should be fine.

NOTE: You must wear stereo headphones in order for this application to have any affect. Do not use if you have a pacemaker or if you have epilepsy(visual stimulator in v2).


  1. It’s been amazing for relaxing my mind & put me to sleep at night! It’s like a switch to divert all my brain activities to the tones & I get knock OUT!
  2. The virtual caffeine tones is like ……slowly but surely WAKES ME UP! OMG! How I wish I can have that for my alarm!


  1. I hope the developer add the ALARM feature for the virtual caffeine so that I can wake up feeling very ALERT! 😀
  2. I am not sure what’s up with the visual stimulation white blinking lights, I believe the developer can make some nice animations with similar effects but looks more prettier. 😀
  3. I heard older version of iOS (Below 4.0.x) may not be able to use this app, which is unfortunate as it’s functions are pretty basic therefore should be backward compatible to devices still using older iOS versions.

Personally, this app is one of my favorite in terms of health & fitness section. I had used it for sleeping especially at nights when I drank too much coffee & find it hard to fall asleep, mind wave will come to my rescue!

For me, it’s worth every dollar I spent on applications made by this developer!
