Have you ever been too stressed to concentrate? Too jet-lagged to wake-up? Too tense to really relax?
What if I told you that your emotions, mood or state of mind could be altered simply by listening to certain sounds and audio?
That’s what BrainwaveShots aims to do with their innovative digital downloads. These 15 minute audios can help change the course of your brainwaves in order to promote a happier, healthier and stress-free life.
How it Works
Brainwave Shots use special embedded “brainwave sounds” to influence how you feel – replicating key states, such as increased brain power, creativity, happiness, confidence, motivation, and relaxation.
This is otherwise known as Brainwave Entrainment, or any procedure that causes one’s brainwave frequencies to synchronize with a periodic stimulus.
There are multiple ‘shots’ available for purchase, each fulfilling a different feeling – from happiness, focus, relaxation and more. Each audio contains a variety of noises including nature and ambient sounds.
To use you simply hit play and listen. In theory, by the end of the session, you’ll be fully within the desired state of mind.
Of course, having an open mind can influence the success of the shots. Those who are more receptive to the idea of brainwave entrainment are more likely to experience noticeable results.

Does it Work?
According to a study completed in 2018, authors found that “preliminary evidence suggested that brainwave entrainment was an effective therapeutic tool, but further research was required.”
So what does that mean?
In short, while there isn’t necessarily hard scientific evidence to prove the validity of brainwave entrainment, there has been feedback to suggest that certain sounds and stimuli can affect the mood or emotions of a willing participant.

BrainwaveShots can be a great way to calm and relax your mind, though it may have varying effects from person to person. If you do decide to try out these audios, make sure to:
- Space out your listening to avoid becoming desensitized (unless you’re using one of the loop audios that is meant to be played continuously.)
- Try to have an open and accepting mind when using this product. It is less likely to work if you go into the process thinking it won’t be successful.
If you’re unsure where to start, decide which state of mind you’re most interested in working on. For example, if you’re feeling stressed, one of the relaxation shots might be the best place to start.
- There are no side effects.
Even if certain audio sounds don’t work for you, you won’t feel any pain or experience any harm from listening. (However, as mentioned above, those with epilepsy should consult a doctor prior to using this product.)
- Long-lasting results.
BrainwaveShots guarantees the effects of their products will last a minimum of 4 hours if not longer. You’ll be able to reap the benefits of the sounds for the duration of events, social outings, tests or otherwise
These audio sounds can be downloaded right onto your smartphone or tablet, can be burned onto a CD or be played on any stereo or other listening device
- It won’t have the same effect on everyone.
All of our brains are different and some stimuli have a more substantial effect than others. In fact, certain sounds might actually be emotionally uncomfortable for some or make certain individuals uneasy rather than provide a relaxing experience
- You can become immune to the effects.
There’s a reason companies suggest using their brainwave entrainment once a day. Overusing the audio can actually allow your brain to adapt to its effect, rendering it unimpressionable. Therefore it’s important to space out your use of any brainwave entrainment products
- More research needed.
While research has shown that brainwave entrainment can provide results to users, there is additional research needed to prove it’s true validity
