What is BrainTap headset?
The BrainTap headset is an extraordinary new technology that delivers gentle pulses of light through special earphones and from within a visor. These lights synchronise with two types of sound - binaural beats and isochronic tones to produce deep and profound relaxation and varying states of consciousness.
While research has proven that both flickering light and synchronised tones can produce relaxed states, combining the two guides you to a profound level of restfulness and rejuvenation that’s otherwise difficult to achieve; it is a state of tranquility that is optimum for mind/body balance, focus, and accelerated learning. If you want to get more done in less time, the BrainTap headset is a must-have.
What are the benefits of using the BrainTap headset?
The majority of users report stress relief through deep relaxation, maintaining healthy sleep patterns, improved memory, improved learning skills such as concentration and recall of information, a sense of calm, increased focus and increased physical energy. Please, understand that results will vary from person to person.
Deep relaxation stimulates the production of natural, stress and tension-relieving neurotransmitters, such as endorphins.
Helps change unwanted behaviors and habits, including those contributing to smoking and over-eating.
Balances the brain’s right and left hemispheres, inspiring both focus and creativity.
Promotes relaxation, which contributes to maintaining healthy sleep.
Brings more blood flow to the brain for clearer thinking and better concentration.
Alleviates negative mind chatter and enhances motivation and performance.
Decreases or eliminates jet lag.
And last, but certainly not least, provides a natural ability to put stress in its place!
How soon will I notice results?
Over 90 percent of those trying the BrainTap headset for the first time report feeling refreshed and energised right after the first process. While individual results will vary, many people report feeling more positive and motivated after just a session or two. Dr. Porter encourages everyone to listen to the full series to reap the most benefit. Those using WEIGHT WELLNESS sessions may notice habit changes, such as a positive attitude about healthy foods or a desire for water, right after listening to the first process. Golfers regularly report feeling more relaxed and confident the first time out on the course after listening to Dr. Porter’s Mental Coaching for Golf processes.
Frequently asked questions
What is brainwave entrainment?
The brainwave entrainment is a procedure that synchronise the brain into entering a specific state by using an auditory or visual stimulation, pulses of light, tone or sound.
How does the BrainTap headset work?
The BrainTap headset is driven by specially encoded guided visualisation audio-sessions that are uniquely encoded with Neuro-Sensory Algorithms (NSAs) to gently guide the user from the wide-awake state into a deeply relaxed optimum learning state.
What are the primary brainwave frequencies?
Is BrainTap safe and can everyone use the BrainTap headset?
The BrainTap is absolutley safe. Anyone who is not sensitive to flashing light can benefit from BrainTap headset technology and gain improved memory, great sleep, focus, concentration, and reduced stress.
What happens during a BrainTap session?
What is frequency following response?
Frequency following response (FFR) is the effect created through synchronised light and sound. It’s how the brain “syncs” to the strobe lights, beats and tones.
Why are the lights in the earphones?
The lights in the ears are set to the optimum frequency for creating a delightful feeling of serenity and balance. The earphone lights work by stimulating the ear meridians with gentle frequency pulses - so gentle that they are not visible to the human eye - to soothe, harmonize, calm and balance you.
Why are LEDs used instead of incandescent lights?
Light emitting diodes, also called LEDs, are solid-state devices that convert small amounts of safe electrical energy into light. They can be switched on and off much faster than incandescent lights, producing the crisp strobe-like pulses most effective at inducing the frequency following response needed to guide the user through the brainwave states.
How important are the music and tones?
What is it like to experience Braintap?
Why are there sometimes two voices on the BrainTap audios?
When you hear a second voice coming through one side the headphone and then other, it’s not a mistake! This is a technique called “Dual Voice Processing.” Dr. Porter intentionally recorded the sessions in this way to provide your brain a full holographic experience. The second voice moving from right to left and back again is there to stimulate right and left hemisphere balance. It may seem a little disconcerting at first, but don’t worry, your brain will adapt quickly. The good news is, you don’t have to consciously listen to any of the voices, so just relax and let it happen. The sessions that have Dual Voice Processing are marked “DV” and those that don’t will be marked “SV” for single voice.
How does BrainTap produce such amazing results?
The BrainTap system is designed to program behaviors so they become natural, unconscious, and automatic. You know how to drink water. You know which foods are more natural for your body. You know what exercise is. You already have these abilities. Our focus is not to give you these abilities but rather to give you a response to those abilities, thus creating responsibility. In other words, it gives you the access to the abilities you already possess! BrainTap provides the motivation, the determination, and the drive to succeed. It’s a common experience that what the mind thinks about the mind brings about. The BrainTap headset is designed to help you to get into that powerful brain wave state where you can impress upon your mind the results you want in life.
What if I'm afraid of losing control?
Our culture teaches us to strive for control in our lives. However, what we think is control can quickly shift into stress, fear and anxiety. You are actually in more control while you are in the alpha/theta states because you gain discretionary access to your other-than-conscious mind, allowing you to tune into your thoughts, feelings, and emotions on a deeper level. With the help of the BrainTap headset and the audio-sessions you choose, you will gain focus while creating positive habits and behaviors, meaning you finally gain the kind of control you really want.
Is it safe for me to drive after using the BrainTap headset?
Yes, it is safe for you to drive after using the BrainTap Headset. You will likely feel refreshed because you have been on a mental vacation. When you come out of the relaxation state, you will feel positive and recharged, as if your entire being has changed. If you feel a little groggy at first, simply have a refreshing drink of water and take a couple of deep breaths. Most people feel the same as awakening from a nap.
Can children use the BrainTap headset?
As long as the child can sit still in a chair for 10 or 20 minutes, the BrainTap headset can be of benefit, and there are a variety of sessions geared toward children, tweens and young adults. We have children as young as five years old using the technology before bed and getting great results. The “Accelerated Learning Series” can be used by teens and adults alike.

Why can't I find BrainTap in the App or Play store?
This problem is almost always corrected by making sure you type BrainTap as one word. Some devices will auto correct the word BrainTap to Brain Tap. Be sure there is no space between the words Brain and Tap before you hit the search button. Another issue may be that your device is too old to support the app. If you’re using an older device, such as an iPhone 4, you may need to make sure you have the latest updates installed before searching the store.
