Binaural recording is unlike other types of recording since it sends sound waves to each ear in different ways and at different times. This is actually the manner that the human ear processes sound. Listening to this kind of recording is an immersive sound or 3D audio sound.
Understanding the Recordings
The future of this recording technology that can bring sound to the ears in a way that makes it believable it is being heard live. The 3D effect is basically like being in a sound equipped room with speakers mounted around the walls and standing in the middle of the room. This about the same as the technology used in these recordings that allow the ears to hear the separate sounds allowing the brain to process it as the sounds are different in each ear.
Binaural ASMR-What is it?
ASMR is a shortened form of Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and this can mean a response of the body with the binaural recordings. Some of the responses from listening to recordings that send sounds separately to each ear can be a feeling of euphoria like tingles in the head or scalp and the neck. It can be that feeling of chills that create goosebumps on the arms. But rather than it being from something frightening or unpleasant it is the head sending messages of pleasure due to the 3D audio sound.
The Future of 3D Recordings
The future of this kind of recording is becoming more in demand with rapid growth since it is the best way to listen to recordings in a way that is realistic. Listening with the eyes closed this technology is sophisticated enough to have the feeling of hearing the recording live such as at a concert. However, this feeling is not only realistic, it can also be relaxing. At least one study has been conducted involving ASMR recordings, and in the future it is probable more studies will be conducted. One reason studies will continue is because the first study data showed these recordings may help relieve some types of pain and insomnia. Though the evidence of this was not the main focus of the study and some research showed the ASMR technology is still in its infancy as to what conditions it may help. There is enough data to show a difference in its effects on the body compared to traditional recordings.
This technology is sweeping through communities of people who enjoy music, but in other communities including people seeking relaxation methods and sleep remedies. The Future of Binaural ASMR Recordingis showing up on Internet communities that can be listened to and used for relaxation or enjoyment purposes.
This is a type of technology that will continue growing. People who listen to the recordings continue to grow also since it has an element of reality, but at the same time can stimulate the brain and body to relax. Though not completely investigated yet there will be more research done involving this technology to find the full effects it can have under certain health conditions.
