Free “Digital Drug” iPhone App

Rockifone has released another so-called “digital drug” iPhone App, Binaural Beats (App Store link). 

Binaural beats are illusory “beats” that you can hear when pure tones of slightly different frequency are separately and simultaneously presented to each ear.

It’s an interesting psychoacoustic effect – one that at least some people think can help you do things ranging from concentrating to opening your chakras. Mainstream media has picked up on this so-called “digital drug”, though, and is offering hysterical coverage that recalls the days of Reefer Madness.

Binaural Beats is a free download.


Binaural beats helps you concentrate, relax or fall asleep by inducing the brain to perceive different brainwave states such as: beta, alpha, theta, delta.

Combining with different nature sounds, you can make your own themes for many purposes such as: Sleep induction, study aid or headache treatment etc. Blocking noise from the outside world, no more distraction!

How it works:

Binaural beats may influence functions of the brain besides those related to hearing. This phenomenon is called frequency following response. The concept is that if one receives a stimulus with a frequency in the range of brain waves, the predominant brain wave frequency is said to be likely to move towards the frequency of the stimulus (a process called entrainment). In addition, binaural beats have been credibly documented to relate to both spatial perception & stereo auditory recognition, and , according to the frequency following response, activation of various sites in the brain.

One thought on “Free “Digital Drug” iPhone App

  1. There is a lot more to BINAURAL sounds then just concentration. Many studies are now underway in many countries including USA France and others looking into the power of BINAURAL BEATS. We at believe this will become a pharmaceutical powerhouse within a few short years. We are selling ”DRUGS” for now but will be integrating research to our willing customers by giving them great tools to define their feelings and sensations.
