The aim of this study is to identify tendencies in the effectiveness of relaxing audio stimuli that could be verified through further focused experiments. A series of brainwave entrainment (BWE) techniques for inducing relaxation will be presented consisting of different binaural phenomena (BP). The BP will derive from the binaural sine wave beat, widely acknowledged in rhythmic BWE literature. New methods of entrainment will include binaural amplitude and precedence modulation, which will be compared to a monaural drum beat and environmental soundscapes. Their ability to induce relaxation will be assessed using Skin Conductance Level (SCL) to measure physiological changes in the body.
