As with any medical research, there will always be people who have experienced different responses
to the research which has never been verified by further research. The reason for this is because
each individual responds differently to any situation.
Therefore the unverified claims of binaural beats being able to stimulate the effects of recreational
drugs, or helping people to memorize and learn, stop smoking, help dieting, tackle erectile
dysfunction or improve athletic performance are unverified as there has not been an acceptable
amount of studied individuals to experience the same result to make the claims verifiable.
Other references to studies on the effects of binaural beats which have been inconclusive and have
fallen into the unverified claims section include a pilot study of eight individuals where the effects of
binaural beats on meditation has found that a frequency of 7 Hz enhanced meditation while 15 Hz
harmed the meditative focus.
One also has to consider that the effects of the binaural beat can be open to the power of
suggestion, also known as the placebo effect, where these unverified claims could be very real to the
people who have had the experience, except that it is because of the power of suggestion.
As much as there are unverified claims of the binaural beats being effective on certain conditions,
there are also the individuals who do not respond to the binaural beats as expected, again this is
directly related to the individual and how each individual reacts to various stimulation.
