Boost Focus Immediately with Music (Backed by Neuroscience)

Boost Focus Immediately with Music (Backed by Neuroscience)

Still listening to Pandora or Spotify while working?

If you answered yes, it's time for an upgrade.

Backed by neuroscience and 13 years of music creation, Brainfm's co-founders have created music that noticeably - and measurably - improves focus, reduces stress, or promotes sleep within 10 minutes.


"The creator of binaural beats said they don't work - but nobody actually reads the study!" - Adam Hewett, Co-Founder Brainfm
Brainfm is specially designed music that improves focus, relaxation and sleep within 10 minutes. 
Co-founders Junaid Kalmadi and Adam Hewett join us on Episode 38 of the Optimal Performance Podcast to discuss the science behind music's impact on the brain, neurofeedback training, wearable technology, and brain training.
This is a long podcast - because it's PACKED with great information. Adam and Junaid were amazing guests. We considered making this 2 shorter episodes, but ultimately it didn't make sense to split this into 2 weeks of episodes.

What You'll Learn About Brain FM, binaural beats, and hacking performance with music in this episode:

  • Brain fm = music to help your brain focus, relax, or sleep
