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.

They are:

The Holosync Solution (one of the originals, though somewhat controversial)

 The Missing Link (BrainwaveLove’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: 

holosync brainwave entrainment program 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 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, and Yogic techniques.  For some this may be too much of a time investment in their day to day life.

The Morry Method brainwave entrainment


And Now for Quantum Confidence with The Morry Method:

 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…… 


(drum roll)


The Missing Link

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.  If you’d like to see for yourself how it works for YOU, you can visit this page and download the first month completely free (no C.C. info needed to try to rope you into automatic payments)

I hope you find this article helpful, and that it gives you a better understanding of what factors go into a product of this nature so you can help to make an educated decision on what would be right for you.  Feel free to drop me a line via email, or by leaving a comment below if I can be of help to you or answer any further questions!

    Dear Ashton
    I am a bit surprised that you don’t comment on 2 systems which have been around for a while: hemi-sync from the Monroe institute – and Silva-meditations.
    There is also a new system Zen12 which has 12 audios which you follow for 12 months.
    I am very interested in your comments regarding the above. I am quite sure you know these products as well…

      Hi there!

      In total honesty I have always heard of the Silva method but have never researched it. I have, however, done quite a bit of research and experimentation with Monroe Institute. There are a few reasons I do not touch upon the Monroe Institute very often. The main reason is that the full scope of what they are doing over there and with their products goes far beyond the goal I have in helping people make positive changes in their lives. What they do is absolutely fascinating to me, but it encompasses things like astral travel, communicating with the other side, remote viewing, etc. Though I don’t discourage people from exploring these things if they are called to them, I do not encourage people to explore these things either, and I certainly don’t feel qualified or comfortable offering advice on them, or leading people towards this path. My personal take is that these things are not necessary for one to explore in order to walk a path towards enlightenment, or to improve their lives and even sometimes these things can be dangerous actually, and distract people from where their peace lies, and also potentially bring people in touch with realms/beings that us humans are not really equipped for or prepared to handle. Also, in total honesty, I started out with Monroe Institute audios for meditation, and was totally unimpressed compared to everything else I tried out there. Rather than giving them negative publicity, I prefer not to mention them.

      As far as Zen 12 goes, I’d be interested in hearing anyone else’s feedback on the program, and I intend to check it out in the near future 🙂

      Hi Eric,

      I have not been able to try this one yet. I did try out their demo at one point in time, and liked it, but don’t know enough about it to responsibly comment at this time. Feel free to let me know by email or commenting back on this page what you think if you decide to try it though!

    Hello, my name is David. I have been on medication for most of my life for depression and anxiety. Today just off the top of my head, which is the way I do most things, I downloaded 3mp3s from the internet which you said no one should do. The were not binurial beats, but Eschain something. Well, I am an emotional person, and along with taking a lot of meds, I take Ativan for anxiety. I would love to ween myself off of this medication. The others, I’ll follow the doctors orders. I am of a spiritual nature, but sitting and meditating is not for me. I live alone, so I don’t need the isolation that sitting in a chain and paying attention to my breath is going to do anything but get me anxious. I enjoyed reading your article. But I need real professional guidance with this technique. Can you help me with any of this

      Ashton Brainwavelove

      Hi David,

      Great to hear from you. To be very clear, the audios I create and offer on this site are not intended to cure, treat, or diagnose illness or medically established symptoms, so I would be unable to advise you on weening yourself off of medication. I would have to recommend consulting a professional health care provider for this.

      I can speak more with you about reducing stress, improving your spiritual well-being, and building emotional resilience, which tend to have a spill-over effect into many other facets of your life 🙂

      Feel free to email me directly at

    Hi Ashton, I recently stumbled across Synctuition but not too sure what to make of it. Have you come across them and if yes what is your opinion on their product?

    • 12
      Ashton Brainwavelove

      Hi Hannah,

      I have not heard of Synctuition. Truthfully there are more and more products of this nature out there and I have stepped back from trying them out in lieu of testing my own projects instead 🙂 Feel free to come back and let us know what you think if you end up trying it!

    I agree that the Missing Link has the best education accompanying any brainwave entrainment program. and also the best price point for everything you get. But one thing I wish all of the programs had had was optional copies of the meditation tracks with different background music or no background music and just the beats or a bit of white noise or whatever. i actually find the loud bird kaws in the first month of missing link to be distracting. the free progressive alpha download track is pleasant and easy to meditate without getting jolted out by loud kawing of seabirds:) there are birds but they are very faint.
    I have found that holosync has the least obnoxious most soothing sounding audio. (Got the whole set when they had a sale, paying a little per month at one point) I have tried brain EV and also I Awake which is endorsed by Ken Wilber. have you checked them out? They have quite a bit of info an support and good explanations of brainwave tech. but both IAwke and brainEV are too obtrusive to meditate to with.

      Ashton Brainwavelove

      Hi Zoe.

      Thanks for the balanced and honest feedback, it is much appreciated. We are actually working on updating the soundtracks to a few of the audios in The Missing Link for this reason, and are looking into providing accompanying audios without a soundtrack.

      I am personally not a fan of Ken Wilber (won’t get into why). But I know many people love his stuff and get a lot out of it 🙂

      Warm regards,

    Hi Ashton,
    I have been using Profound Meditation Program 3.0 by awake for nearly 2 years now which has been tremendous-got me through PTSD and more(Have found it less obtrusive in terms of the “PUSH” compared with Holosync), yet still gets the best results. They have a myriad of varied subjects on different CD’s and MP3’s which I find interesting and refreshing.I will be looking at getting back to use Quantum Mind Power and Quantum Confidence with The Triliminals and Brainprints(from Morry Zelcovitch soon which I listened to for about 6-12 months and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED!!How does “The Missing Link ” course compare?

    • 18
      Ashton Brainwavelove

      Hi Barry!

      It is so cool to hear that you were able to move through PTSD with brainwave entrainment and meditation. Congratulations! I’m sure you feel a lot of gratitude and satisfaction for this accomplishment.

      The Missing Link is quite different from Quantum Mind Power or Quantum Confidence. It is very much a meditation program, that has a much more spiritual focus. It is also much more than just listening to the audios. In the Missing Link, brainwave entrainment is 1/4th of the tools you use. It also includes video training, energy practices, mind training exercises, etc. It is not for everyone! If you are interested in seeing more what it is like I’d encourage you to download month one for free at the bottom of this page:

    Hi, I wonder why you haven’t listed Deep progressive Alpha BWE as high quality brainwave entrainment? I am trying that out – I am very grateful for that gift, Ashton ?

      Ashton Brainwavelove

      Hi Ingrid!

      Thanks for mentioning how much you like that audio! Mainly it is not listed because it is free, and also a single audio, rather than a “product”. We do have an article that talks about what the best brainwave entrainment audio is, which would be a more appropriate place for it 🙂
