The world’s most beloved irrational number - the number pi may be irrational but the sound itself isn’t. The noise you're hearing contains a process called binaural beats. When two tones are played at slightly different pitches they produce audible pulses or "beats" equal to their difference in pitch. We'll call that the "beat frequency.” So what is the beat frequency of this sound? 3.14Hz of course! It just happens that 3.14Hz is right in the middle of the Delta Wave band - the type of waves that the brain produces when it's in a deep relaxed sleep. When the tones are played in the left and right ears, your brain perceives these beats and may react by changing its own waves to match that frequency: 3.14Hz, the frequency of sleep. To get the full experience of binaural beats, you'll want to listen to this sound using headphones. White noise has been mixed in to create a peaceful ambience that also blocks out distracting sound. While the mix is fuller with the addition of white noise, that tasty slice of binaural pi is still in the background beating all night long.
