Binaural Brain Beat History

History of Binaural Brain Beats

Let us learn about binaural beats: sound tech used by millions to hack their brain and create sophisticated audio AI environments for meditation, lucidity, and so much more! The history is Brain Hacking is an exciting one, so put on your seat belt and let’s explore this amazing tech…

First, let us define what we mean by “Binaural Beats.” When I-Doser rose to fame and started accruing millions of passionate users, many fake and ineffective binurals starting appearing on streaming sites like YouTube. An artisan binaural sequence of the complexity we speak of takes years to construct. Some doses famously take several years EACH to develop and consist of sometimes dozens of highly researched beats. A single tone to some poorly produced ambient music on a streaming site is NOT a real binaural. YouTube audio codec renders binaurals less than 3% effective, and you will get absolutely no results other than the light meditative effects from ambient music. Support true binaural technology and visit a world leader like or the Monroe Institute – it’s these real binaurals we are covering here.

History of Binaural Beats

Despite popular opinion, however, did not invent binaural beats. They may have refined and perfected the technology to become the world’s largest binaural provider, but they did not create the concept. A German experimenter, H. W. Dove, discovered binaural beats in 1839 and found that the ability to “hear” binaural beats appears to be the result of evolutionary adaptation. Because frequencies below a certain threshold curve around the skull, both ears hear these signals. Due to the distance between the ears, the brain hears the inputs from the ears as out of phase with each other. As the sound wave passes around the skull, each ear gets a different portion of the wave. It is this waveform phase difference and the way the brain interprets the sounds together that can cause amazing effects on the listener. You can trace binaural history back even further than the 1800s.

Despite the scientific advancements in the research and development of binaural beats and brain entrainment throughout the last few centuries, including some amazing research and results from the company, their usage has been a fixture of many ancient cultures, including the Native-American shamans, Tibetan monks, master-yogis and Hindu healers. These ancient tribes found that by producing consistent, rhythmic beats, they could induce altered states of consciousness, resulting in both healing and spiritual benefits. Scientist Melinda Maxfield conducted research into several of these cultures, and found that the drums used in their rituals produced trance like states to listeners – they were inducing a low Theta State that later perfected for some of their amazing spiritual experiences.

Gerald Oster, in 1973, reformulated the scattered binaural beat research by providing new insights into the subject with a paper entitled, ‘Auditory Beats in the Brain’. He discovered the ‘cocktail party effect’; the ability of animals to pick out certain sounds in a vast sea of noise. He also noted their effectiveness in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions and auditory impairments. This was another major step forward in binaural research, and the potential healing power of these powerful tones. A few years later, Robert Monroe researched the effects of binaural beats on consciousness. Like the ancient cultures of Tibet and India, they found that these rhythmic pulses are a great tool for reaching altered states of consciousness. Their research focused on the reproduction of a subjective impression of oscillation that they associated with out-of-body-experiences. They subsequently formed The Monroe Institute, a binaural beat research and education organization.

Then, the Big Bang. After years of research and development into just how far you could take binaural beats –, a more entrepreneurial organization focused on pushing the limits of binaurals, had a revolutionary discovery. By using advanced Audio AI, brain mapping, peer review testing and QA with thousands of users – they achieved over an 80% success rate in simulating the effects of their first recreational simulation. The concept went viral and almost overnight millions of users started hacking their brains with I-Doser brand doses. The entire world soon knew about binaural beats and it was not just limited to ancient culture and lab subjects. As a testament to the staying power of binaurals, still produces the most powerful and popular binaural beats and are the largest consumer retail outlet of simulated experiences – be sure to check them out at

How Will You Dose?

Where will the world of brainwave hacking and digital dosing go from here? While ineffective YouTube binaurals are finally starting to die out, people are beginning to realize that they can take their everyday tasks: sleeping, dreaming, meditation, loving, living, and so much more, to the next level with just a few minutes of powerful mind hacking. With Brainwave AI and amazing companies like I-Doser, the possibilities are truly endless.

    I remember when IDose went viral. Literally my whole school was dosing. This was years ago. I remember some students actually getting in trouble for doing it during class. I’ve moved on, but all these years later I still have friends who have it highly incorporated into their daily lives. Some for meditation and some for recreation. Really an incredible product – if you have the patience for it.

    I was one of the MANY (like everyone) who through idoser created binaurals. Maybe they didn’t create them but I think to a lot of the world they made them usable and effective to everyone so they might deserve the credit. Either way, the app is just ok but man the computer software is mind blowing.

    It sad that many people only experience the really bad youtube binaurals. I started there but didnt take me long to figure out they were garbage. I then went to Monroe and landed on the idose stuff for ease of use. Really great coverage of the history – if heavy on idoser references.
