Does Synctuition live up to its promise? An honest review.

For 7 years, I’ve been practicing different types of mindfulness and meditation.

I’m not an expert or a meditation coach. So this review talks about my personal experience.

Everyone should practice some type of mindfulness or meditation. It has many physical and mental benefits.

How does it work? (The technology and science behind Synctuition)

Synctuition is a meditation tool that uses binaural sounds, brain entrainment, and 3D sound technology.

You listen to their audio tracks using headphones. This is very important. You must use headphones or you won’t get the desired effect.

You hear two different frequencies of sound. One on each ear.

Your brain harmonizes the frequencies and enters into a state of deep meditation. This is the same mental state that experienced meditators achieve with practice.

With 3D sound technology, brain entrainment, and binaural beats you can do it. You don’t need meditation skills. In fact, it’s a good introduction to meditation and a shortcut to getting the desired results.

Now that you understand the technology, let’s go over some details.

What is Synctuition Meditation?

Synctuition is an App that you can install on your iPhone or Android.

It comes with a free version that you can use as long as you wish.

How to use it

You can start here. After downloading the App you will be asked to record your voice.

This is optional. You will get the benefits of 3D sounds, entrainment frequencies, and binaural beats even if you don’t record your own voice.

According to synctuition’s official website:

“The voice personalization adds a subliminal touch in the frequency of your own voice to help you breathe and relax”

The first thing you should do is go over the free meditation tracks. You can do this before you start your free trial.

Yes. This can be a bit confusing so I will clarify:

You can use Synctuition’s free tracks for as long as you want. They don’t expire and you will never have to pay for them.

However, if you want to give the full version a try… you will have to start your 7-day free trial. Then… you will have 7 days of free access to all Synctuition content.

If at the end of the 7 days you want to keep using it, you’ll have to upgrade to premium.

What makes Synctuition special?

Synctuition technology helps you get to a deep meditation state in a fraction of the time it would take otherwise.

To me, that makes it special.

Because anyone can meditate or practice mindfulness. You don’t need any type of technology. And you can do it for free.

Sit down, close your eyes, and focus on your breathing.

But you and I know how many distractions we have in the modern world.

So why not use tools to get the desired results faster?

Why Synctuition and not Headspace?

I am a long term user of Headspace. I have a family plan on it and I got my wife and kids using it.

What I like about Headspace are the guidance and educational aspects. It’s what defines the Headspace experience. What makes it so useful as an introduction to mindfulness.

Synctuition is a little lighter on the guidance side of things. At the beginning of each “sound journey”, they have words that help you focus your mind on what matters.

But all in all, Synctuition is more about the actual deep meditative experience.

Headspace is more of a coaching tool for you to find your own deep states.

Synctuition pretty much “blasts” you into deep state.

Both Apps are useful and you can use both in combination. They do different things.

How much does it cost?

If you want to unlock all the “sound journeys”, plus more than 20 hours of deep relaxation, and other features, you can upgrade to Premium.

They have a few different payment options.

You can pay $15.99 per month.

Or one annual payment of $95.99 (which is $7.99 per month.)

Is it worth it?

The answer to this question is unique to you.

It might or not be worth it for you.

It’s worth it for me because:

  • Even though I’ve been doing mindfulness for years sometimes it’s too easy to fall out of habit. Synctuition is an effortless way of getting into that deep mental state fast.
  • I find it easier to go deeper than with Headspace. Don’t get me wrong, Headspace is awesome and I still use it. Especially because of the insights and guidance. But I find Synctuition more efficient to get me to the desired state of mind.
  • With Synctuition it’s very easy to go to sleep. You can use it to fall asleep easily and to have great recovering long nights.

Bottom Line

The brain is our most powerful tool. I find it surprising that people spend all types of money on their bodies and almost none on their brains.

Even if it means that I’ll be 1% more focused and efficient during the day, it would make it worth it.

(But it does more than that.)

  1. I just started using the app and what takes me 10-20 minutes of silent meditation, I can achieve in four minutes! The first “journey,” totally blew me away!

    I do find that I struggle with the ones that I have to use more imagination with because I really only desire to close my eyes and breathe; not pretend I’m catching the biggest wave! LOL!

    Thanks for sharing this! 🙂

  2. Great post! I just did the first 4-minute introduction and I’m looking forward to the rest, even on annual payment. I do need meditation in my life and other techniques haven’t helped that much, I’m very wired…. thanks!

  3. Great review and very timely for me as I already have an annual subscription to Headspace and I was tempted by Synctuition’s Black Friday offer and was wondering how the two apps compared, which you did nicely in this review. I think I will go for the lifetime sub to Synctuition since it’s being offered at 50% off currently! I’ll let you know how I find it! Thanks!

  4. Does it make you more intuitive? It kind of markets on the aspect of intuition and law of attraction. I just wonder how it will actually be effective in both aspects.

    • Hi Iafe, thanks for stopping by. Intuition is difficult to “measure” so you will have to be your own judge. My opinion is that any type of mindfulness or meditation does increase your ability to tune into your natural intuition.

  5. I’ve been engaging in daily meditation for almost 3 years. I can meditate up to an hour without falling asleep. However, I get so deep with Synctuition that sometimes I dose off and here’s the best part: I’ll have lucid dreams!!! Synctuition is by far the best meditation app I’ve come across. I believe in their brand!!!

    • Glad you are enjoying it. I heard that many people can have lucid dreams. My dreams have been more vivid, but I have yet to experience the “lucid dreaming” experience.

  6. I came here after starting it, and I appreciate knowing the free options are a choice if I recommend to my husband. I found this last night in my nightly struggle to fall asleep, I’m in chronic Lyme Disease recovery. Meditation has saved me through it, but this app worked better than any other mix of the similar attempts of sleep music and delta waves tried. I used for meditation this morning. Thank you for more insight!

  7. I am using Synctuition and I am impressed. I find doing at night makes me a bit disoriented the next day and unrested, so I do it early in the morning. Not sure if this is a usual reaction or because it is something new. However, I have just finished “Fairytale” one and it was wonderful, but at the very end I heard footsteps approaching in the sandy shale. I became petrified. All I could do was focus where these footsteps were coming from and who owned them. I felt relief when they passed, only to be petrified when they turned to come back. When they stopped behind me I froze. I felt alone and vulnerable and really scared….I couldn’t turn it into anything positive. What is it supposed to represent and what is the aim, so I can turn it around into something healing?

    • Hi Irene, thanks for stopping by and commenting your experience. I believe that what you are experiencing is a part of your mind reverberating and trying to surface a deep thought or a deep emotion that you have been successfully ignoring so far. Meditation makes you aware of more parts of your consciousness and therefore these repressed thoughts are hard to ignore. If I were you I would visualise turning around and going after those steps and not stopping until you find out what they mean to you. You might not like the answer, but at the same time, they might hold the key to unlocking some past trauma that you might have been holding on to.

  8. I’ve just begun Synctuition. The sticker price is a little hefty, but I will try the free version at first. The introduction was awesome and I look forward to listening to the Welcome meditation. I really want to give this app the ole college try. I’ve been doing meditation now for over a year since my counselor suggested meditation as a way to retrain my brain because I suffer from PTSD. Meditation has helped me a lot and I am always looking for ways to improve my sessions and find ways to go deeper into relaxation. I look forward to using this app.

  9. Would any kind of headphones work for this, since you have to play it stereo rather than mono? I use generic Sleep Phones. I also have huge Bose ones but wouldn’t want to lie down with those on. Thanks!

    Reply
    • Any headphone works for me. A nice big Bose makes it for a really cool experience, and it’s OK to lie down facing up. Just not to go to sleep.

  10. Thank you for this review. I just tried the 7 day introduction and didn’t understand that now there is a 7 day free trial.. I have been enjoying the app so far and will consider the big price tag!
