Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones

You may want to try Binaural beats and Isochronic tones.

A binaural beat is an effect created by the brain when it hears two tones at slightly different frequencies. Essentially, your brain activity synchronises with the beat, which is known as entrainment or the frequency-following effect, and it can help you to relax, focus, and cope with your emotions through increasing your brain function.

An isochronic tone is similar to a binaural beat in the way it functions. The difference is that isochronic tones are individual tones that are spaced evenly, almost like a repetitive beat, rather than two tones working together. Just like binaural beats, the frequency-following effect occurs, and this helps aid various states of mental wellbeing.
