What is the Best Brainwave Entrainment Product?
This is a question that gets asked a lot, and is a little more complicated to answer than one may think.
There are many different factors to consider when deciding which brainwave entrainment is ‘THE BEST’. Quality is certainly an important factor. How consistent is the product at producing its advertised result? How well does the audio do in actually bringing your brain into the state it is meant to? This is just talking about the quality of the brainwave entrainment audios themselves. There is also the question of quality of the whole product/program. Brainwave entrainment is a powerful technology, and is also still a relatively new and unexplored technology. How well does the orchestration of the various audios/uses for the audios come together to produce its promised benefit? A program is not just about the brainwave entrainment audios, as there are many other activities, techniques, and practices that one can do while using brainwave entrainment audios on a regular basis to get the most out of their use, and to move along towards the designated goal of the program as a whole.
Another very important factor to consider is personalization. Not every brainwave entrainment product is designed to do the same thing. Yes we can gather that an alpha audio is of course designed to bring the brain into an alpha state, but when you look at some of the most popular brainwave entrainment products on the market, you’ll see that they do not all aim towards the same end. One may be aimed at increasing confidence, one may be more targeted at instilling powerful beliefs into the subconscious mind, or goal achievement, and one may be designed strictly to supercharge and speed up the same results that one would get from regular meditation.
With this preliminary statement, I am going to explore some of the best brainwave entrainment products on the market today, and give you some of my opinions, based on my own personal use and experiences with them.
What distinguishes the best brainwave entrainment products from all the rest?
One general similarity that we can conclude upon among all of these products is that they are all aimed at making a positive improvement in your life, so we can go from there. However, this positive improvement can take a few different forms, depending on what you are looking for.
Another important factor is simply how well the audios work, how knowledgeable their creators are on how the technology works as they create them, and how effectively the technology is in creating positive change in the brain.
When we start with these two variables mentioned above – the quality of the brainwave entrainment audios, and the positive impact that the program has overall on your life – we limit the choices down to a few contestants.
There are three products that I would consider to be candidates for the best brainwave entrainment product.
– The Holosync Solution (one of the originals, though somewhat controversial)
– The Missing Link (Brainwave Love’s own 7-month meditation program)
– Quantum Confidence w/ the Morry Method (Morry Zelcovitch’s program aimed specifically at improving confidence and stimulating the brain to produce beneficial hormones and neurochemicals)
again, these have all been selected as contestants because all three of them have considerably high quality brainwave entrainment audios that work well in bringing the brain into the state that the audio is designed to bring it to.
All three of these programs are also high in quality in regards to the orchestration of the brainwave program itself, the materials and information provided, and the support given to the purchaser of the product.
Let’s now briefly explore these brainwave entrainment products, their aims, promised benefits, and actual results. We’ll start with Holosync:
The Holosync Solution, a brainwave entrainment program created by Bill Harris, is all about what happens when the ordinary fellow can all of a sudden meditate as deeply as a 20-year experienced Zen monk. The audios are designed to simulate deep meditation, starting you from the alpha state at the beginning of the audio and slowly bringing you down progressively through alpha, theta, and ending in delta over the course of a half-hour. The brain is then held in delta for half an hour, and the session is over. One interesting thing about Holosync is that with all the hype these days about isochronic tones and monaural beats, Holosync still sticks primarily to binaural beats.
There is a very specific reason for this, and this is where Holosync’s approach is unique from the competition. As described above, there is only one formula for Holosync’s brainwave entrainment regimen. The brain is brought from alpha over the course of a half-hour, slowly down to delta, then held in delta for another half-hour. What is interesting and unique is that the program is divided into levels. With each progressive level, the carrier frequency for the binaural beats is lowered. This has been found to increase stimulation to the nervous system, and actually “exercise” and push the brain to increase its resiliency to input and stimuli. This results in the brain and nervous system evolving to be able to more effectively handle stress and negative emotion. This whole approach is indeed different from any other program out there, and Bill Harris has done quite a bit of due diligence in explaining this process in scientific terms, drawing upon theory of entropy and open systems, and a few other interesting concepts.
In short, regular long-term use of Holosync gives one the ability to more resourcefully handle stress, and immunity to negative emotions.
Overall this is a very effective and powerful brainwave entrainment program. It works. There is also a great deal of support offered (there is a 24/7 support hotline) along with a wealth of very useful and applicable information and free bonus materials.
However, there is a major downside with this program: the price. I personally believe that this program is more than a little bit overpriced, and that Bill Harris is taking advantage of the public’s lack of knowledge of how brainwave entrainment audios are created. Holosync costs several hundred dollars per level, and contains several levels. In order to progress along this program you will end up spending THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. The snake oil is revealed when you begin to understand that it literally takes a couple clicks of a button on a brainwave entrainment software program to lower the carrier frequencies. There is not much to it, and yet the customer is being charged hundreds of dollars each time they upgrade to the next level, for these couple clicks of a button. If you learn to make your own audios, you can very very easily duplicate this same progression by yourself.
Let’s Move on to The Missing Link meditation program
I want to be completely upfront and honest by making sure that you understand that this is my program. Of course I am going to have good things to say about it, however, I am going to do my best to be honest in explaining its benefits and drawbacks.
The Missing Link is a meditation program with a very specific purpose. It is aimed at enabling you to make it to deep and profound meditative states as quickly as possible, and then to be able to use this meditation for the specific purpose of having a tangible experience of your true identity as the Self, your Oneness with All That Is.
The basis for this approach is that your identity, who and what you believe yourself to be at the deepest level, is the very foundation upon which every other belief, habit, action, thought, and feeling that you have rests. By making a shift at this profound level, and by connecting with your transcendental Self, you are able to make positive changes to every aspect of your life all at once. This especially makes a powerful shift in what you manifest and create in your life experience with your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs.
The Missing Link last 7 months, each month coming with 2-3 hour-long brainwave meditation audios, specific instructions for the meditation practice, and little-known esoteric exercises for working with the energy system of the body and transcending the ego.
This program is unique in a few different ways. One is that is does offer many more instructions, practices, and exercises aside from just having you listen to the brainwave entrainment audios. Rather than the brainwave entrainment being THE program, it is a facet of the whole picture. The different practices from month to month work in synergy with each other to produce the end goal of the program. Another difference between the other comparable programs on the market is that the end goal is much more “spiritual” in the sense that it deals with the ego-mind and the energy body.
As far as the audios go, the program starts out by slowly bringing the brain into an alpha state in month 1. By the next month the brain is brought into a lower alpha, and then into theta the next month, and gradually progresses until by Month 7 the audio is bringing you gradually from Alpha, all the way down into the epsilon range of deep delta. This is meant to as naturally mirror a traditional meditation path as possible, gradually introducing you to the deeper and deeper levels one month at a time.
The last thing about this program that is quite unique from the others on the market is that it uses BOTH binaural beats AND isochronic tones. Each month comes with one binaural beats audio, and one isochronic tones audio. From my personal experience there are unique positive benefits of both of these methods. Where many audio creators bicker about which one is better, my belief is that they both are useful for their own reasons.
One of the big reasons why binaural beats are used each month, along with the isochronic tones is so that the approach used in Holosync can be utilized. Therefore over the course of 7 Months in this program, the carrier frequencies are gradually lowered in the binaural beats tracks to produce more input to the brain and nervous system. This is very similar to Holosync, however, because of the way the program is set up, we are able to lower the carrier frequencies of the very end tracks of the program all the way to the frequencies that Holosync uses in their deeper levels (these are frequencies that you would only be able to use with Holosync after over a year with them and spending 800+ dollars)
With the program priced at $350 (right now it is on sale for $199.99) it is a comparable value to the other products on the market.
Drawbacks of The Missing Link
As mentioned above, this program does have more of a “spiritual” approach, and dips well into the esoteric in terms of the mind, the ego, and the energy body. This may not be as practical and goal oriented as some people would prefer. Though the product is advertised as a means of helping to achieve your goals and better use the power of the mind to create your reality, some people may feel more comfortable with a bit more of a practical approach.
This product also may require more dedication than the others mentioned on this page. For Holosync, your main objective is to just listen to the audios daily. The Morry Method product below has audios you listen to daily, a meditation track, and a “triliminal” recording with affirmations on it. The Missing Link, however, includes breathing exercises, different practices and meditations each month, videos to watch, Yogic techniques, and daily affirmations. For some this may be too much of a time investment in their day to day life.
This product is based on the premise that your core beliefs about yourself affect everything else in your life, your success in relationships, the amount of money and wealth you accumulate, etc. I wholeheartedly agree with this premise. The program is designed to improve your level of confidence and self-esteem at the core level, using a collection of brainwave entrainment training, subliminal messaging, guided meditation, and an interesting creation of Morry Zelcovitch’s called a triliminal. I have to hand it to Morry, these audios are also of premium quality!
They work very well, and have many features to them that are not duplicated by anyone else out there. They have a specifically created “white noise” in the background that helps drown out any noise that may be happening in your environment, and keep it from interfering with the brain’s entrainment to the audio. These audios are also specifically designed to produce certain types of endorphins and neuro-chemicals in the brain when listened to. This is a slightly different approach from other brainwave entrainment products.
Once again, this is a great brainwave entrainment product, for a great value. The cost is relatively cheap, it also comes with some good bonus materials, and all of the components in the product come together to work quite well and accomplish the goal of improving one’s core self-esteem. The triliminal is enjoyable to listen to, and seems to work quite well, along with the confidence guided meditation, and the subliminal audios.
One thing that the Morry Method lacks in comparison to the other two is support. The materials themselves are quite “supportive”, and you do get several fantastic bonus audios from your purchase, but aside from the purchased product, there is not much additional support offered.
Another issue I’ve had of late, from really studying and evaluating Morry’s products and advertising, as well as from talking with customers from my page that has also dealt with Morry, is that he has made a reputation for himself of being completely dishonest and shady in the way he markets his products and in the “information” he gives his customers and contacts on brainwave entrainment. There is a good deal of smoke and mirrors on his sales page, and there are a few claims he makes that, from my perspective, are not true, and that I would have to think he knows are not true.
For example, Morry adamantly claims that any background music, nature sounds, etc. in a brainwave entrainment audio interferes with how effective the audio is. I completely disagree. The reason being that a brainwave entrainment engineer is able to actually use the background tracks to further imbed additional entrainment technology into the audio to actually make it more effective. The background also adds more mood and atmosphere to the track, where Morry’s audios are very bland tones pulsing on and off (which can get a little dry and boring). I’m not sure if he simply doesn’t understand that this something you can do to make an audio, or if he doesn’t want to use this approach in his audios, but I absolutely don’t think that his audios are better in any way because they don’t have soundtracks to them.
There are a few more examples I could give, but I do not wish to be unprofessional. In spite of my feelings that Morry Method claims and information are sometimes dishonest, I do believe that the audios are of great quality and that quantum confidence is a great program. Because of this, I still recommend it to anyone who is looking to improve their level of confidence and feel better in their own skin.
So when we compare these three high quality brainwave entrainment products, my personal opinion on which is the best is……
Ok, of course I’m going to say that my product is the best one right? But keep in mind that I’ve been using brainwave entrainment products for over 12 years now, and have had a great deal of experience reviewing other products and programs. One of the best things about The Missing Link is that I was able to take the pro’s and con’s of some of the best programs that I have personally used (including both Holosync and Quantum Confidence) and combine what works best while eliminating what doesn’t work.
The real edge that The Missing Link has is in the fact that is uses both binaural beats and isochronic tones, and that it is able to utilize the method of lowering the carrier frequencies as the program progresses. It also has a much more personal, spiritual, and holistic approach than just giving you the audios and having you listen to them. Yes, brainwave entrainment audios are fantastic, and will do a lot for you by just listening, but you can improve the speed and efficiency of your results one-thousand fold by combining your meditation time with actual meditation practices and yogic techniques.
But again, I’m being up front with you here, of course I’m going to think my product is the best when I’ve personalized it over the past 10 years of reviewing and using other people’s products.
