Best Headphones For Brainwave Entrainment
Do you need special headphones for listening to brainwave entrainment audios? Not really. If you have earphones that are good for listening to music then they should be fine for any brainwave entrainment such as meditation.
The most important requirement for listening to brainwave entrainment audios is that the headphones must be stereo. If you are using headphones at all they have to deliver a different sound to each ear.
But if you are planning to buy new headphones then the first thing to consider is your budget. You can pay through the roof for headphones yet it is still possible to get very good headphones without making too much of a dent in your bank balance.

Audio-Technica ATH-M30 headphones are of an exceptionally high quality and very robust because they are intended for professionals who are out and about recording, mixing, DJing or whatever it is that they do. With their collapsible design they are easily carried around or stored.

Sennheiser HD 202 Headphones
In case you find that you cannot get the above headphones at this bargain price the next best choice for headphones under $50 are Sennheiser HD 202 . These are around $20 for what are pretty decent headphones.
After using the cheap ear buds that come with mp3 players you will find these to be the height of luxury! They aren't going to be as comfortable to wear as the more expensive models above, but for most people they will be perfectly good.
There are over 500 reviews of these headphones at Amazon.com and the average rating is 4 out of 5 stars which is pretty good as there are always a few who won't award anything 5 stars on principle!
I am going to leave it at that. I don't want to make the choice too difficult. I think that you will be very happy with either of the above options.
