Binaural Beat MP3’s versus CD’s


If you are considering trying out binaural beat audios or some type of brainwave entrainment recording you will find that you have a choice of purchasing your product in MP3 format or else on a CD.

There is a difference of opinion as to which format will provide the most effective results. Below we will look at the facts so that you are able to make an informed decision.

The Controversy…

The difference of opinion is that some people believe that when binaural beats or other types of brainwave entrainment are created in MP3 format and then downloaded onto some type of media player they will lose a certain amount of quality.

In otherwords it is believed that by listening to binaural beats on an MP3 recording you will not have the same effectiveness as listening to brainwave entrainment products on a CD.

The Facts…

The facts are:

  • Yes binaural beats in MP3 form may lose some of their quality if they are not created using advanced software in the correct manner… i.e. with very little compression.
  • Many companies use stock recordings and these MP3 files will not be very effective once they have been downloaded and burned to a CD or on an iPod or MP3 player.
  • Reputable companies know this and will only use high quality software for their recordings with as little compression as possible in order to preserve the quality.

It is the compression that affects the MP3 files. So if you want to purchase binaural beats in MP3 format make sure to research that the website you are buying from uses as little compression as possible in the creation process. This will mean that the MP3 file is quite large but the quality will be intact.

Making a Decision…

Knowing these facts you can make the decision for yourself as to whether you would prefer your brainwave entrainment audio to be an MP3 file or a CD. A good quality MP3 will be just as good as a CD so it simply comes down to a matter of personal choice.

These days I personally prefer the MP3’s. I find them to be much more convenient as I can download them instantly and use them right away. Also they tend to be less money.
