Brain.fm Lets You Focus, Relax or Sleep While Streaming
Whether you are trying to focus and get work done, you need to relax and unwind, or you need something soothing to help you fall asleep, Brain.fm has tunes to help you. The songs are completely original, so don’t expect to hear songs that you know, but they work like a charm.
All the music you hear on Brain.fm is original compositions, meant to be streamed for specific periods of time. Just choose whether you want to work, relax or sleep, and then go a little deeper and the service will create a “brainwave” of music for you to listen to. Put on your headphones or plug them in and enjoy. You can set the stream to play for 30 minutes, an hour, two hours, or indefinitely until you turn it off, or even skip a specific song if you don’t like it or it doesn’t work for you.
If you want, you can go to the “Research” tab at the top of the page to try different recordings and audio tracks for each category as you like and explore the available sounds without creating them on the site. Likewise, the Brain.fm team claims to have a lot of scientific data in their compositions and streams, and you can read a lot of it in the Research tab. I tried this service for a few days, and of course the target playlists were full of ambient yet punchy music designed to blend into the background but delivering a moderately punchy soundtrack. The relaxation playlists were definitely relaxing and relaxing and perfect for relaxing.
Brain.fm is similar to services like the previously mentioned Focus @ Will or another dedicated site , GetWorkDoneMusic . The big difference is that Brain.fm uses all the original music. Likewise, Brain.fm is a paid service. It’s free for 7 listening sessions, so you can try it and see if you like it. If you like it, you can get a premium account for $ 7 a month, $ 4 a month if you pay for the year in advance ($ 48), or $ 150 for a lifetime subscription.
