Hemi-Sync FAQs

  • What product will enable me to have an out-of-body experience?

    An OBE cannot be guaranteed. Your ability to experience an OBE depends on many factors unique to every individual, like personal beliefs, possible fear barriers, etc. If you are interested in an OBE, we recommend Hemi-Sync® Support for Journeys Out of the Body or the Gateway Experience series.

  • What’s the difference between Human Plus®, Mind Food®, Heart-Sync® and Metamusic®?

    Human Plus recordings teach you how to activate the benefit of a particular selection whenever you wish without listening at the particular moment when you desire the intended effect. For example, the Human Plus title, Attention, exercise teaches you how to move into a highly focused state when not listening to the Attention exercise. Most Mind Food and Heart-Sync titles provide the experience/benefit while you are listening. For example, the Mind Food title, Concentration, helps your brain move into a highly focused state of concentration while listening. Metamusic® selections contain music and Hemi-Sync® with no verbal guidance.

  • Is there a problem in making copies of Hemi-Sync® products for friends?

    Yes. Hemi-Sync® products are copyrighted. You would be breaking federal laws and therefore be liable to prosecution.

  • Is Hemi-Sync® recommended for children?

    All nonverbal recordings are fine for children. With verbally guided titles, we recommend you listen first and then decide based on your child’s level of maturity.

  • Some Hemi-Sync® products have sections in which the voice is too low for me to understand. Isn’t that subliminal? Or is it a defect in the product?

    No to both questions. By the time the voice becomes low in volume, you are in an extremely relaxed state or perhaps asleep. The words you may not understand are simply a repetition of earlier sections of the recording. They are repeated for purposes of reinforcement, at a very low volume so as not to interfere with your state of relaxation.

  • Are Hemi-Sync® products subliminal?

    No. Subliminal recordings have the intention of embedding a particular thought in the mind of the listener by recording words at sub audible levels, often at high speeds. Hemi-Sync® sound patterns, although recorded at a sub audible level, are not verbal messages and are not recorded at high speed. The purpose of Hemi-Sync® sound patterns is to assist you in obtaining the focused brain state you desire.

  • Is Hemi-Sync® like hypnosis?

    Yes, they are similar. Hypnosis is an induced, altered state of mind, in which the body is deeply relaxed, sufficient to be temporarily ignored, except for demands like bladder fullness, etc. It is sometimes described as “focused concentration.” This “state” is one in which the participant has perhaps even more control over the body and self than in “ordinary” states of consciousness. Witness the fact that hypnosis is sometimes used for pain control in minor surgeries, childbirth, and even dentistry. It is an expanded state of awareness, in which one can be fully aware of the sensory data from the environment, (sound, light, temperature, etc.) and at the same time can develop awareness of other data sources as well, such as past lives, out-of-body information, information from guides, one’s inner self, etc. Neither state can “make” you DO anything. You are able to maintain your faculties for choice and value systems, including choosing to follow suggestions from the therapist or not. Hemi-Sync® is designed to leave control in the hands of the listener as well. In this sense, it’s somewhat related to self-hypnosis. Hemi-Sync® does not “make” you do anything. It simply creates an effect that helps you move into a certain state, providing that you relax and are open to responding to the Hemi-Sync® process.

  • Can someone with hearing loss benefit from Hemi-Sync®?

    Yes. Hemi-Sync® uses low frequencies, so if the hearing loss is in the high or middle frequency ranges, it would not interfere with Hemi-Sync®. Moreover, the vibration created by the sound frequencies may be experienced kinesthetically as well as auditorily. Doctors and individuals with impaired hearing tell us that the frequencies are effectively carrier to the brain by the bones in the ear canal; they may also be nerve conducted. Further, the binaural beat itself is not a sound; it is an oscillating beat created in the listener’s physiology when different frequencies are introduced into each ear.

  • When I download a CD to my computer, the media player displays a different title.

    Most media players first access an online database (which may or may not have the latest or correct information) to identify the contents of a CD. You may be able to adjust your media player’s settings to pull the information from the CD instead of the online database. Since 2006 Monroe Products has digitally encoded our CDs with artist, title and copyright information, but we have little to no input on how online databases are managed.

  • How long are Hemi-Sync® recordings?

    Most are between 35 and 60 minutes long, though recently we have introduced exercises that are roughly 20 minutes in length. Timing varies to accomplish the purpose of each listening experience.

  • Are the Hemi-Sync® frequencies the same on each title?

    No. The Hemi-Sync® process has evolved into a sophisticated multi-layering of Hemi-Sync® signals – “designer mixes” of sound frequencies, fashioned to be optimally effective for a given application. Naturally, Hemi-Sync® sleep products incorporate predominately delta frequencies; learning products predominately beta and so forth. However these designer mixes are supplemented with special sound frequencies, which enable the desired result. This is the “key” to the effectiveness of Hemi-Sync.

  • Are all titles available in CD format?

    Most titles are available on CD. Some of our older titles are only available digitally. We previously phased out our cassette tape inventory.

  • Is Hemi-Sync® on all the products?

    Yes, unless they are listed under Flying Man Records™.

  • How does Hemi-Sync® work?

    Hemi-Sync® is an audio-guidance process that works through the generation of complex, multilayered audio signals, which act together to create a resonance that is reflected in unique brain wave forms characteristic of specific states of consciousness. The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or “Hemi-Sync®,” where the left and right hemispheres are working together in a state of coherence. As an analogy, lasers produce focused, coherent light. Hemi-Sync® produces a focused, coherent mind, which is an optimal condition for improving human performance.

  • In a nutshell, what is Hemi-Sync®?

    Hemi-Sync® is a scientifically based and clinically proven “audio-guidance” technology that uses sound to influence brain wave activity. This patented, and highly sophisticated technology is backed by over 50 years of research. For more details, see the expanded explanation in What is Hemi-Sync®?

  • How does Hemi-Sync® compare to other products?

    We feel that it is inappropriate for us to comment on specific products or technologies; however, many competitors do like to compare themselves to us, and for good reason. Hemi-Sync® remains the gold standard.

    • Robert Monroe’s pioneering work with hemispheric synchronization (Hemi-Sync) sound patterns inspired an entire industry of mind/brain products and technologies.
    • Hemi-Sync is a technologically sophisticated process that has been awarded three U.S. patents.
    • With millions of products sold worldwide, Hemi-Sync® has been shown to be a highly effective, safe, time-proven technology.
    • Improving the efficacy of Hemi-Sync® has been a continually evolving process — to which we have remained committed. Today’s Hemi-Sync® has been refined with over 50 years of research and development and is supported by numerous studies, reports, articles and testimonials available at https://Hemi-Sync.com. Hemi-Sync® has been scientifically and clinically proven to be effective.
    • Over the years, the Hemi-Sync® process has evolved into a sophisticated multi-layering of Hemi-Sync® signals—”designer mixes” of sound frequencies, fashioned to be optimally effective for a given application. Naturally, Hemi-Sync® sleep products incorporate predominately delta frequencies; learning products predominately beta and so forth. However, these designer mixes are supplemented with special sound frequencies which enable the desired result. This is the “key” to the effectiveness of Hemi-Sync®.
    • Ongoing Hemi-Sync® research has resulted in the development of scores of individual products for specific applications such as focused attention, stress reduction, meditation, sleep enhancement, and pain control, to name a few. Other Hemi-Sync® products are available as a series (some of which are progressive in nature) such as the Gateway Experience® In-Home training program for exploring states of consciousness.
    • We do not recommend using Hemi-Sync® in combination with other devices or technologies that influence brain activity.

  • I purchased the Gateway Experience on eBay. Is this legit?

    Please be aware if you purchase a Hemi-Sync® album from a third party, you may be actually purchasing a bootlegged copy. This is especially true with any Gateway Experience albums. This is also true of virtually all downloads from any other site other than hemi-sync.com.

    These tend to be copies of either CDs or pirated downloads, and therefore the potential for degraded audio exists, resulting in little to no efficacy of the Hemi-Sync® technology. In some cases, the recordings may be significantly altered, or even harmful. The only way to insure you are purchasing the authentic Hemi-Sync® album is directly from hemi-sync.com, or CDs from an authorized Hemi-Sync® reseller. If you are unsure, you can always contact our customer service at interstate@hemi-sync.com to verify if the seller is legitimate.

  • When Bob is saying, “You should be hearing my voice in your right (or left) ear” I’m hearing it in both. Why?

    If you are listening through a media player, such as Apple Music, RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, etc., we found the voice can be “ghosted” in the adjacent channel. This is due to the fact that media players are software, and do not operate like home stereo systems, which are hardware. We create all of our audio masters in stereo, and have verified these are correct. We also confirmed the Hemi-Sync® frequencies are separated, so there is no issue with entering into hemispheric synchronization.
    Note: This is not an issue with CDs being played on home stereo equipment/CD players.
