Sound therapy is hardly new, but binaural beats are being touted as ways to induce well-being and relaxation, enhance mood or cognition, and treat neurophysiologic abnormalities. The benefit of binaural beat technology is largely unsubstantiated, however, and the technology touted for its health benefits is unregulated. One thing is for certain, using binaural beats with personal listening devices can put listeners at risk for noise-induced hearing loss. As an auditory phenomenon, it hits close to home for hearing professionals.
