Customer Reviews

I took time to look into people’s feedback on the product on various social brain related forums and I got to say people loved it. Really. Although I can’t manage to list all the testimonials, I was able to get a couple of them to give a good idea of how people found it. Here they are.

Equisync Reviews

It is clear that it was helpful for reducing anxiety, blood pressure, ADD, bringing quality sleep and treating other disorders. I have it too, in fact I write this while listening to it. And it sure sounds great and really helps with improving concentration and focus.

So, in general, this thing is fairly good. Mark the word “fairly”. There’s more to it as I’ll be explaining here.

What is Equisync?

This is a program that was made for people who meditate to help them have a deeper experience with their daily meditation than they usually have. If you just started meditating, you may not be getting the same spiritual and physical experience as the one who has been doing it for months.equisync review

There is always a huge difference in terms of experience and benefits. Now equisync tries to bridge the gap between you, the beginner and the advanced. Even though it has not been entirely successful, it is doing a pretty good job. It is owned by Exploration of Consciousness Research Institute (EOC institute).

It uses a technique called brainwave entrainment.

As used in this system, this is a technology that uses your external wave frequencies that have been blended with regular music that helps influence your brain to behave like someone who’s been doing meditation for a long time, thus helping you feel more spiritually awake, at peace and calm with cheerfulness among other benefits.

How Equisync Works

Well, it all starts with you. In your brain there are waves that are used to indicate the state of mind you are in. This means that, if you are in a jovial state, there is a pattern that the waves in your brain form.

If you are sad, there is also a certain pattern that is formed. And this applies to all other states like concentration, how you sleep, calmness, meditation, focus and attention to mention a few. These brain wave patterns can be read and caught using an EEG machine that will then help to create those waves externally for people to use them.

equisync brainwave entrainment method

Now the waves created are in different varieties and intensity which will help induce different mind states for various people. This means, if you want to sleep, you need relaxing waves that take you right away to sleep. So you will get waves that start out high and slowly decrease to help shut your system down. In the same way, if you want to meditate, you will get waves that will help you shut down your body and make your mind alert and spirit awake.

The most common waves are theta waves, alpha waves, beta waves and delta waves. This program uses theta waves which report good results with meditation.

When you listen to the music mixed with these waves, your brain tries to copy the wave frequencies in the music, thus getting you in the mind state the music was meant for. Equisync has deep meditation wave frequencies which your brain will try to copy and get you to the depths of meditation, which saves you the time (months, and at times years) you’d have spent to get there.

How to Use Equisync

Equisync comes with 3 programs, Equisync 1 to 3, with each program having 2 CDs, A and B. So in total there are 6 CDs. In each CD, there are 3 tracks that last for about 24 minutes. You have 2 options for working with any of the tracks. You can choose one of these:equisync CDs

Structured Progressive Approach – This means starting from the simplest track to the most complex one. It takes about 4 months to completely get done and it kind of trains your brain to become much stronger on its own. But this, according to wider experience, is not sufficient to make the brain well able on its own. You need about 6 months to be completely capable mentally. That is why I recommend using other great programs to train your brain like BrainEv which take this long and are way more powerful than Equisync.

Intuitive Preferential Approach – This is where you use the tracks just for meditation without training your mind. And it what most people like, but which I don’t love since they make you dependent. You know most people don’t like engaging programs probably because they are busy or for some other reason. This approach will only give you instant benefits and when you are done, they disappear. And this is not something you want to work with. It’s best to use the progressive approach which will get your brain more powerful and independent. That is what I call fully making the most of the program.

After you choose your preferred option, you should listen to 1 to 2 tracks per day, which will be about 48 minutes per day.

Who Shouldn’t use Equisync

This doesn’t apply to equisync product alone, but to all other brainwave entrainment products like holosync, and the rest. Here is the list of people who are not encouraged to use equisync and brainwave systems, for safety purposes:

• Those below 18 years (teenagers)

• Those who have epilepsy to avoid triggers of seizures

• Those who are driving or running dangerous machinery (while listening to relaxing or sleep inducing programs)

• Those who have had injuries in the brain or suffer any mental disorder

What is Included in the Program

As said earlier, there are 3 Equisync programs:

• Equisync 1 with 2 CDs, A and B (each CD has 3 tracks lasting for 24 minutes)

• Equisync 2 with 2 CDs A and B (each CD has 3 tracks lasting for 24 minutes)

• Equisync 3 with 2 CDs A and B (each CD has 3 tracks lasting for 24 minutes)

And you get them all when you buy any of the packages offered.

Equisync Cost, Discount, Demo and Free Downloads

There are 3 packages for the program. The first package consists of mp3 downloads which you get links to make instant downloads immediately you complete your payment. This package costs a one time payment of $99. You can also choose to pay for it in 3 installments of $34.95 each.

The second package consists of CDs only. This is where you pay for physical CDs and wait for about a week to have them delivered to your location, wherever you are in the world. The price for this is a bit higher, it goes for a one time fee of $124. You can also pay in 3 installments of $44.94 each.equisync cost

The third package comes with both the mp3 downloads and the physical CDs. Here, after you pay, you can download the mp3 audio series and be listening to them as you wait for the physical CDs to be shipped.It’s double the benfits and is what I highly recommend you go for. And it costs the same as physical CDs alone, $124, with the options of paying the whole $124 and get done with it, or pay 3 monthly installments of $44.95. Don’t buy the one at Amazon, or use the YouTube version, they are not original, buy from the main website (www.eocinstitute.org).

And you get a 20% discount code when you order it quick.

Is there a demo? Oh yes! You get a demo that is 12 minutes long to help you get an idea of what you are paying for. You can download it, listen and keep it.

Equisync is Good But Here’s Why I Don’t Recommend it

Based on the details I’ve given about it as well as the customer reviews, and the fact that there haven’t been any complaints about it this far, it is evident that this is program you can use and get good results. But the price you have to pay for it is really high. $124 or $99 is just too much for me. I say this because I know many other great programs like these, and sometimes better than Equisync that go for way less.

If you want to meditate properly and comfortably, you should get a program that is cheaper and that also gives you a variety method of meditation options, like guided meditation, or meditation with nature sounds (giving you different atmospheric impressions), with relaxing music or white noise.

We are all different and should meditate differently too. And the program which offers that which is my #1 recommendation for meditation is Zen 12. It is way cheaper (almost half the price of equisync), offers 48 audio CDs and has these 4 options.

    Thanks for your review of this product! I love that you included what customers were saying about it! It seems like a great product, but it has a hefty price tag!

    What programs are out there that you would recommend that provide the same benefits for less of the cost?

    I like your explanation of how the brain waves work too! You mentioned that people who have a mental disorder should not use this. Does that include depression or Bipolar disease?

    If it does, is there a meditation program that is recommended for people who suffer from those?

    Great review tough! Very in depth and informative! Thanks for your time and effort!

      Hey Kayla, 

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Sure Equisync has got a hefty price tag. That is why I recommend using zen 12, I have given more information on it at the bottom of the post. It goes for almost half the price of Equisync. 

      And it has many more wonderful options as far as style goes. 

      You can also use zen 12 when you have depression. I think it is also safe to use for people who have bipolar disorder. 

      Ideally, ainwave entrainment products are only unsafe for people who have serious mental issues like brain injuries and the like.

        This is so confusing. I am researching to help my son with his bipolar, manic, europhoric, depression and balance as he does not do well with numerous side effects from meds. He loves the up europhoric state as the low depression is awful but he gets so excited and brings on manic. I came to this meditation site Equisync because it said controls bipolar minds helps put in sync and now read is not recommended for people with mental Illness???? I need to check more reviews with people with bipolar that use this as this is so confusing to my balanced mind.

          Hey Kelli,

          I am very sorry if it came out confusing to you.

          The thing is, brainwave synchronization is great and really does help with many mental illnesses, but not in all cases.

          There are people who will find it great when they use it to deal with bipolar disorder and there are those with this same issue who will use it and not get results, or perhaps get worse.

          Why this?

          Because the results vary with the individuals.

          That is why I warn people with mental illnesses to be careful with this brain altering systems, and also recommend others to use it, if they know it’s their right fit.

          It may or may not work for you or your son depending on how intense the problem is and the other health conditions you or your son have in addition to this.

          In simple terms, it works best if you are fit for it and may at times go below average if you are not fit for it.

          Please determine where you are and make your decision. 🙂

          Personally, I recommend first checking with a health specialist before you jump on any of these systems, just to be safe and sure it will work with this specific system based on how it has been made, and how you or your son needs it to be, to get well.

          There are many brainwave synchronization methods used in different systems.

          I hope this helps Kelli.

          P.S. If you need more help I am here, just keep the conversation going.

            Hey Thomas,

            It is safe to equisync if you don’t have any brain issues, or injuries, and don’t plan to use the cds while you are driving or using heavy machines. You can see in the post the people who I don’t encourage to use equisync and other brainwave entrainment programs in the “Who Shouldn’t Use equisync “ section.

            Also, if you are wondering whether equisync will help with anxiety, I cannot assure you of that as this program is for helping people with meditations and it brings a few other benefits, although not for all people.

            I would advise you to use brain salon as that has great solutions for anxiety. I hope this helps. 🙂

    Having never tried a product like this, is it some combination of hypnosis and biofeedback? Or is the meditation training different? I guess I’d like a clearer idea of how it works and what benefits I could get from it right away. I also see that you think it’s a good but overpriced program. What are some cheaper alternatives?

    Reply
    1. Dave Post author

      Hey Penelope, 

      This one uses brainwave entrainment, there is no hypnosis involved. Brainwave entrainment is simply using external wave frequencies in audio tracks to change the state of your mind to be the same with the frequencies in your headphones. 

      The tracks are meant to move the brain in certain waves that will get your brain waves moving in the same direction and ultimately getting you to experience the state the waves are meant to induce.  

      And yes, the cost of equisync can be quite an issue for most people. That is why I recommend using zen 12 which us way cheaper and more effective than

    Interesting. I’ve never owned a program to help with meditation, I came to know of them just recently.

    Once I heard they existed, I wanted to try one of them out and see how it goes. Also, I didn’t realize there were right and wrong ways to use these programs in order to train your brain.

     It makes sense to me that this would be the case, I just hadn’t thought about it that way.

    I often meditate while doing my morning yoga and I have done this with and without music. I’ve also just sat quietly in meditation for a period of time in the quiet early morning hours. 

    I don’t know how this compares to using a program and whether it would be comparable to training my brain to delve deeper or not. But I think I am yet to see that with zen 12. I’ll try this one 

    Thank you for sharing about the equisync program and comparing to your preferred method. I think I’d rather spend less as well. Thanks for giving better and cheaper recommendations, you have helped me save big time.

    Thank you very much Dave for the cheap recommendation. 

    I was actually about to buy into Equisync when I saw you talking about zen 12.

    And if price and styles are anything to go by, I will surely go for zen 12 because it is more convenient. 

    I would also like some clarifications, you mean to say that you will get 48 CDs in total, with zen 12? All for less than $90?

        Hi Dave. You mentioned that the Equisync is great, but is expensive. And you mentioned that Zen 12 is great as well but cheaper and offers more quantity(cds). Is comparing the two similar to comparing a Porsche to a Toyota? Porsches are more expensive than a Toyota, but both are of great quality.

    Very interesting product. Although, I can understand that there might be better alternatives.

    I first tried out meditation a few years ago. I saw some benefit but never managed to make it a habit. I eventually stopped completely, and I probably haven’t meditated for more than a year now.

    I would really like to get back to it, and I wondering if you think such a product like this is still useful for me? I would classify myself as a beginner.

    1. Dave Post author

      Definitely Marcus,

      Both Equisync and Zen 12 are great tools you can leverage for meditation as a newbie. But zen 12 would be much better since they have guided meditation sessions which would ease the work for you. And it’s cheap too.

    Hey Dave, 

    I have been meditating for 12 years now and I have never really gotten the kind of deep spiritual benefits I hear my friends talking about. I was hoping to use this to see if there will be a difference.

    I’m going to try zen 12 and see how it goes. Do you think it has something to do with my spirituality?

    1. Dave Post author

      Hey Luna, 

      You can never be too sure it is your spirituality that has got problems. May be it is your brain or the way you meditate.

      You first have to test a variety of things out before you make any conclusions. It is a good idea to start with zen 12 and see what happens from there. 

      Be sure to let me know how things work out. I will be glad to help out where I can.

          Hallo there Teri-Ann,

          I am sorry to hear you are having a hard time making a choice. 🙁

          If you feel like your mind is off, it means that a lot is going in your life and you simply want to de-stress so that you can gain mental energy to get up and running and to do things well.

          For that, I would recommend you first go for zen 12 since it works great for helping you de-stres, relax and feel lighter mentally with the guided meditation sessions as well as the relaxation meditation.

          It is cheaper than equisync which means it is all the better option for you to start with.

          After using it, you could come again and tell me how you feel after a few weeks (2 to 3 weeks) and then I can advise you further.

          I hope this helps.

          Have a fantastic day. 🙂

    Thank you for your great post about the Equisync. I didn’t know about these kinds of programs until I’ve read your post. So, you opened a new window in front of me. Do these programs work for a beginner who wants to start meditating? 

    They appear to be play tools for meditation ‘grown ups’. What do you say?

      But you can use them. The best one to start out with is the one I recommend, it’s called zen 12.

      It has a variety of styles like brown noise, nature sounds and 2 others. They are great and will help you know which style is the best fit for you and help you enjoy the benefits of meditation while enjoying the style as well.

      More like getting double the benefits.

    Thanks for the fore warning on this program and I can see why you don’t recommend this.

    I have always been for motivational speeches, cds and so on, but I think this has gone a bit too far for my liking. I wanted to try out something new.

    Apart from the price, are there any other downsides of it? I didn’t quite get you there.

      Hey Phil,

      You are welcome. What Equisync does is to improve your experience of life by elevating your state of mind.

      It is great in terms of health benefits but the reason I don’t recommend you use it is because of the high price and styles of music.

      I don’t see the reason for paying $124 when you can get a lot more than that in terms of styles with another program, zen 12, that costs almost half the price of Equisync.

      I hope things are clear now. 🙂

    Great review Dave. The Equisync looks like a great mediation program but I agree that $100 a piece is quite on the high side for these types of meditation music. The Zen 12 looks affordable for me and if it can do the same thing, all the more reason to get it right. Many thanks for this recommendation!

    Thanks for a truthful view of Equisync. Looking at its effectiveness vs cost when there are other equitable programs out there that an compete with Equisync at a fraction of the cost it is definitely something that I will consider as I look at these programs further. Do you have any recommendations on headphones that are best to use with these programs?

    Reply
    1. Dave Post author

      Hey Jackie, 

      I think most brainwave products work well with stereo headphones, or earphones which close the better part of your ears or ear buds. If you have any of these, you are good to go. 

      But if you are planning to buy, I would highly recommend buying the ones the actual program recommends. In this case, stereo headphones are the best to use. 

      I hope this helps.

    It looks like Equisync is a high quality product that has benefited so many people, based on the testimonials that I have read. I have never used this type of program before, but this one definitely caught my attention.

    I was quite surprised that towards the end of the review, you actually don’t recommend people to buy the Equisync. I thought that the price point was typical for this type of comprehensive program.

    Nonetheless, this is a very good review, and I look forward to more of your recommendations!

      Hey Farhan, 

      Sure Equisync is a good program and has lots of benefits to carry from it but based on things like styles and price, I find it falling short.

      See, most programs that go for that hefty price at least ought to have a number of styles for people to choose. Styles like relaxation music, brown noise and other options are things people should get for this high cost. 

      But Equisync only tackles one style. Yes, this style has been well designed and is working for most folks. And I actually recommend people who find it suitable to buy it. 

      But to me, the price doesn’t really match what you get. 

      Zen 12 is something more considerable. It gives you 4 styles with 12 CDs each (48 in total), and goes for a little over $80. Equisync has only 1 style and 6 CDs in total for that style, and you pay about $130 for the system. 

      See what I mean?

          Hey Joe,

          I am really sorry you have been experiencing this problem.

          Firstly, I have not heard anyone else who has had such a problem when accessing the free trial, so chances are high that the problem is on your end.

          But this is just a speculation.

          A few questions you should try to answer to spot the issue is,

          1. Have your email been used again to access the same Zen 12 product before, either by you or anyone else through the same email you are using?

          2. Have you used the same device you are using, in the past, to get the same Zen 12 product? Or someone else who had that device?

          This will give us some direction as to what the issue is.

          As we figure this out, you can also try sending a message to Zen 12 support team, they are usually fast and friendly to help with these kinds of problems.

          I am looking forward to solve this problem. 🙂

          Cheers.

    Hi and thanks Dave,
    I have a partially deaf left ear. I’ve been told by some of those companies that there has been ‘limited’ research into the effectiveness of brain wave entertainment and it’s possible that they can still work based on vibrations etc. Binural beats being less effective than isochronic tones. What’s your take on this and does Zen 12 use different entrainment methods such as isochronic tones?

    Reply
    1. Dave Post author

      Hey Paul,

      It is true.

      Brainwave entrainment does work very well for many folks.

      And when it comes to the entrainment methods, I would say it depends with the individual who wants to use it and why he is using them.

      See, isochronic tones are great because they play great sound frequencies which are the same in both ears, meaning you don’t necessarily need to use headphones.

      And this is great for people who don’t want to use earphones to benefit from this brain science.

      Binaural beats, however, play different sound frequencies in the ears that is why you need to use headphones to get the best experience and all the benefits.

      Although most folks say that isochronic tones are better, I would say that the tones have almost the same effect, but work differently in people depending on what their needs are.

      To overcome different health conditions, you will have to identify the best type of entrainment for you and then stick to that.

      And I love zen 12 as it uses all the tones and emtrainment types including isochronic and monoaural and binaural beats, and has blended them in the different versions.

      What I would advise you to do, is to listen to the 4 versions of zen 12, 1 version per week, and then evaluate what is making a much more significant difference in your life in terms of helpful effects.

      If you find it, be using that version. 🙂

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers.

    I hear voices regularly that say they are demonic and depress me all the time. I think it might be spiritual and from past trauma. I hope to get rid of the negative voices. Do you think it’s a good idea for me. I’m also a Christain. What would you recommend for me???

      Hey Antonio,

      Firstly, I am very sorry you are going through such a horrifying phase in your life right now.

      Since you are a Christian, I would encourage you to pray for peace in your life, and believe you are going to get it from God. Reading texts of peace from the Bible helps too.

      After that, you can try using zen 12 relaxation and guided meditation programs. This will do you a lot of good.

      On top of that, I encourage you to look for visualization programs that will help change your mind.

      If you do this, I am more than confident you are going to get over this.

      Have a good one friend, 🙂 and be sure to let me know how it goes for you.

      I’ll be waiting.

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for taking the time to do this review. I need to do more research into these programs but I was wondering if Zen 12 allows you to choose the ‘mood’ you are seeking like Equisync suggests it will facilitate. Sometimes I want to relax but sometimes I need focus or other things. I understand the concept of using frequencies to elicit a desired response in the brain but was wondering how specific Zen 12 will allow me to be during my daily life and according to my needs in the moment. (I’m assuming different frequencies = different states. Please correct me if I’m wrong!). Perhaps this works generally so I have greater command over my states as a whole? Thank you for your time and thoughts. Have a great day! 🙂

      Hey Paula,

      The thing is, I recommended zen 12 as the best way to go with as it is much better than equisync in meditation.

      When it comes to states like focus and relaxation, the best system I would encourage you to go for is brain salon. It has the best brain changing strategy and has many states like for focus, relaxation, sleeping and many more.

      You are surely going to love it. 🙂

    Does Zen12 ever offer discounts or anything? Because Equisync sent me an email and a code for 35% discount which got me interested in it, as it took the price down to $65, which is cheaper than Zen12 – would that still be a good deal? (In my local currency, with the discounted price it still works out to $100). Thank you

      Hey Kathy,

      Zen 12 does offer a discount, a huge one in fact. 🙂

      Zen 12 normally goes for $87 but currently, they are giving more than 50% discount on it, allowing you get at only $37 (they give you $50 discount) for 48 cds that include 4 meditation styles, which I am sure you are going to find really interesting.

      Equisync goes for $65 after the discount but zen 12 comes all the way down to $37, and looking at the quality of zen 12, I sure have to say it is slightly higher than that of equisync.

      So I would recommend you go for zen 12 since they give you high quality stuff as well as a competitive price and discount.

      Hope you have understood.

      Cheers. 🙂

    Frankly I would not recommend Zen 12 meditation program. I purchased the whole program but stopped listening after a few weeks. There is like a “diesel engine hum” on every track I tried – unfortunately it sounds really distracting. I’m using high quality headphones Sony MDR Z7, and the hum is really bad.
    I’ve gone back to listening Brain Evolution systems tracks 1-6. These are just beautiful natural sounds, very relaxing and calming and I highly recommend trying that program. BrainEvolution and Zen 12 are owned by the same company, but I have a feeling that whoever done BrainEv system tracks 1-6 knew what they were doing where Zen 12 is pretty bad. Even BraiEv track 7 (called Evolution) is marginal as that one has “a diesel engine hum in the background”. It looks like completely different people made tracks 1-6 than track 7 and Zen 12.
    Before Brain Evolution I had used Holosync meditation system all the way to Purification Level 4, so I consider myself reasonably experienced in using brain wave technology.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers,
    Tom

      Hey Tom,

      You sure are pretty experienced with brainwave entrainment products if you have used all of those. 🙂

      These are the most popular products within the industry and they sure carry a huge portion of the industry.

      As for not getting good results with zen 12, I will have to agree with you as I have also gotten a few other people say that zen 12 didn’t quite help them as they imagined it would.

      This happens with many products out there. There will be people who will get good results with it and there are those who won’t.

      I say this because while you may not find zen 12 to be the real deal, there is someone who was really happy when they found it and have been getting deep life changing effects ever since they started using it.

      At the same time, I have also had someone say that Brainev isn’t any effective for them because he had used it and felt nothing. But you and I say the product is really great as it helps the brain in a great way.

      See where am I getting at?

      The thing is, with most brain products out there, there is a group who will find it useful and another small one that won’t see any value of it.

      And the best way to know which one would work best for you is to try them out.

      I completely understand you mate, and am happy you stopped by to share your experience with both zen 12 and Brainev.

      Thanks and have a great day. 🙂

    Hello, this is a great review. I stumbled upon EquiSync doing some random internet browsing & I wanted to try something new. After reading up on all the benefits of mediation I want to try and make this apart of my everyday life or at least 4 times a week. I have never meditated in my life & I become distracted very easily. I’m 22 years old if that is of any relevance. In your review you mention that people become dependent on these products and only reap the short term benefits. My question is, do you have any advice for someone just starting out that’s want to become proficient in meditation while not becoming dependent on any said product to do so? Any advice is welcomed.

      Hey there,

      Nice to have you here.:)

      My advice to you is to go for a system that helps you learn how to meditate, and that would mean getting a guided meditation program, but with the options of having more styles of meditation that you can use in the future.

      This way, you will be able to get guidance on your first few meditation sessions as you step foot in this highly beneficial practice, as well as get the opportunity to practice it like an advanced meditator in the future, using the same program.

      The best program that I know would help you achieve this is Zen 12.

      It has all 4 options of meditation including the guided meditation (The guided meditation of this program is the best I have seen thus far). The other options include relaxation music, nature sounds to enhance mindfulness and oneness with nature and brown noise for clearing distractions. These are for intermediate and advanced meditators though.

      I would recommend you start out with the guided meditation first, and then after you have gotten the hang of it, which will be after about 3 months, you can then get to use nature sounds to take things to take to the next level.

      The beauty of it is that you can use it for years as it helps you through all your levels of meditation. Also it helps train your brain to remain in a meditative state for long which adds to the overall benefits (an added benefit).

      I believe you can see the reason I recommend you use it.

      So go for zen 12, for this would make the best fit for you.

      I hope this helps. If you have any more questions or need help with anything brain related, just keep the conversation going. I’d be happy to keep chatting. 🙂

      Cheers.

    Hi, Can you please explain why you didn’t don’t recommend brain entrainment products for those who have brain injuries? My wife and I were in a rollover car accident in 2016 where we sustained a traumatic Brain Injury with brain bleeding. I had brain swelling also and bleeding in my brain stem which caused a stroke. I’m looking for any tools that will enhance neuroplasticity. Thank you.

      Hallo there Jackie,

      I don’t recommend people who have had brain injuries in the past to use brainwave entrainment products because they are very likely to affected by the entrainment systems since they have a huge effect on the brain, which may interfere with your brain health if you’ve had any related issues.

      Companies that produce these systems mention this on their websites.

      Although, you should note that the entrainment products may work for you, if you first confirm with your doctor that you are safe enough to use them. I have heard of folks who used them when they were having brain related conditions and got to see good results. There are also other products of this nature which are recommended by the doctor.

      The best thing I recommend you do to know whether they are safe for you and if they will give you the kind of results you are looking for is to confirm with a doctor of your safety in using them. After the professional advice, you can decide which path to take.

      I hope I have helped you well enough.

      If you need more help with this, just let me know. I would really love to help you out.

    Hello,
    It attracted my attention that you rank a products 94 out of 100 and you still don’t recommend it. Also the fact that other people like it and have given positive reviews is a good sign.
    I have one question for you: Do you think it’s really necessary to buy a meditation DVD compared to just meditate without listening to anything? I frequently meditate, just close my eyes and meditate.

      Hallo there, 

      Nice to have you here. 🙂

      Well, I ranked the equisync 94 out of 100 because the product is of good quality and folks are loving it. 

      The only reason I don’t recommend is because of the price. It is really expensive. 

      That is why I have provided the zen 12 alternative as it is far cheaper with the same high quality experience as equisync, if not more for some people.

      Hope I have cleared up that for you.

      When it comes to meditation, I would say the need to buy a meditation DVD depends on your level of meditation and your personal preference.

      If you have meditated for a good while now, I would say it is okay to do it without the DVD. But if you are in your early days, I would encourage you to get one as it helps with improving your experience and concentration.

      I hope I have answered all your questions. 🙂

      Have yourself a good day.

    Hi Dave,
    Great thorough review. I’ve been teaching meditation classes for a few months now. The students have enjoyed the times when I’ve brought in theta wave sounds and music, especially as it helps the newer students concentrate easier. Usually, I just find a track on youtube and play it for them. So I have a couple questions. I know you said that it is a bit expensive, but what do you think of the included training? Also, do you think the music is substantially better than something that you can find for free on youtube or other music source? Thanks.

      Hallo there Paul, 

      Nice to have you stop by. 🙂

      I see you are having a really good time with brainwave music in your meditation classes.

      When it comes to comparing the free youtube music videos on this area and equisync, I have to say that it is by far better than the free videos. 

      The thing is, the creators have put in a lot of quality effort into the program  and that is why they feel the high price tag they have put on it deserves the quality they offer to users.

      I also find equisync highly effective, you actually can’t compare the free youtube videos with it.

      The only thing I find a bit discouraging with equisync is the price. Other than that, it is an amazing program.

      Hope I have answered your question. 

      Cheers mate. 🙂

    Hi Dave, i’m desperate to find a product that can help me with sleeping. I have no problems falling asleep at around 10pm when im usually exhausted due to lack of sleep, however, i only manage to stay in a deep sleep for approx 2.30mins -3 hrs then i wake up still wanting to sleep but unable to or some reason.I just simply lie there and try to focus on my breathing etc, but nothing works. This has been going on for over 30 years,and iv’e coped up until now. but i’m getting older and it’s getting harder and harder to function.
    I have agreat life,no problems or worries at all, so no worrying thoughts invading my mind.
    I’m baffled,any ideas which product might help?
    Thanks

    Hi there, your post was a bit of an introduction for me into the concept of waves influencing our brains. The most I have heard about this before reading your post is about binaural beats from youtube videos that I use to help me fall asleep at night. (I’m not completely sure, but I think they’re related.) This is very intriguing to me and I appreciate you writing your recommendations. 

    I would love to see a side-by-side comparison of all three programs that you mention in the article. BrainEv, Equasync, and Zen12. If you are able to make one, that would be awesome! In any case, I’m going to check out your Zen12 article. Thanks again!

    1. Dave Post author

      Hey there Maria 🙂 ,

      You are always welcome.

      Firstly, binaural beats are related to what equisync offers. 

      They are all under one category of a brain technology called Brainwave Entrainment as I mentioned in the post. It simply helps you get to mental states you desire faster.

      In your case, you used them to help you induce sleeping mental states that helped you sleep faster.

      Also, I have done some comparisons of the programs I have mentioned here. You can check out equisync vs holosync

      I am looking into the other comparisons and will let you know when they are ready. 

      You can also stop by after a few day’s, they should be ready. 

      Finally, zen 12 is a good program which I am sure you are going to love. Do check it out.

      Have an awesome day! 🙂

    I must commend you for taking your time to share this review, you must have done a lot for research. I have never tried this product and actually this will be the first time I will be seeing a product for meditation.i medicate every night before I sleep and I’m thinking maybe if I use this product it will double the rate at which I meditate.

      If you like meditation, and would want to see better results for your upcoming sessions, then you are going to want to get zen 12.

      It really does a good job with meditation. 

      Please read my zen 12 meditation review to know how great it actually is.

      I will be waiting to hear your feedback on it when you use it.

    Interesting article. 

    I stopped by to say thanks for having helped me get zen 12. Initially, it thought that equisync would do the kind of magic I needed for my brain but you offered a much better solution for me which turned out to be far better than I imagined.

    I have been using zen 12 for a good while now and I am loving every minute of it.

    Keep up the awesome work here.
