Optimal Listening Experience

In which I try to assure a listener that her phone is good enough for Solfeggio Frequencies and Binaural Beats.

I was wondering if the quality of the Solfeggio Frequency recordings can become distorted or compromised by the source of the file (ie Spotify, CD, etc.) and/or by the output source (i.e. computer, cell phone, etc.). What is the most efficacious why to listen to your recordings for an optimal experience?



Anymore, hardware audio quality from phones and computers is pretty high. The same can be said for music services like Apple Music, Google Play, and Spotify. If you are truly concerned about fidelity, download loss-less files from which include FLAC, Apple Lossless, Wav and AIFF. (PROTIP: if you enter a donation price of zero you can download the audio for free. But please donate, I beg you: I need your nickels for pickles!)

No matter what service you’re using, there are settings to adjust your listening experience.

Personally, I am a Spotify subscriber. I create playlists that reflect different moods and I download the playlists to my phone. My Spotify quality settings are set to “Automatic” when streaming and “Very High” for tracks that I’ve downloaded. I pretty much only listen to tracks I’ve downloaded over WiFi because I’m concerned about data usage and sound quality. Also, I never equalize (EQ) the audio.

There are two main ways I listen to music: I stream audio over bluetooth to speakers or I listen to my phone via the included iPhone earbuds. And I am completely satisfied.

Solfeggio frequencies are just notes, really. Speaking of my own solfeggio music (Solfeggio Suite, Solfeggio Cycle, Aurora, Deltadream, and Hibernation), the only things that can cause unintentional distortions is misusing the equalizer or re-tuning the music, which is often done to make the music 432Hz. Don’t do that to Solfeggio music or binaural beats music!

Speaking of binaural beats, I feel like I should mention that all of my recordings include binaural beat frequencies which function better when using headphones, so I do recommend headphones or earbuds to get the best stereo experience from the beat frequencies, but brainwave entrainment still works even without headphones.

I hope this helps?

Peace, love and light!
