The BioResonator Set. Looking suspiciously like a tuning fork on a plank of hollow wood, this is actually an adjustable tuning fork on a plank of wood. Subtle difference see, and all to do with Theta brain waves, sound and banana milk shakes. OK, so we made the last bit up, but you get the drift. $259.95.

 “Difference tones” created by the BioResonator are used to align your brain waves for deep meditation, relaxed awareness, problem solving, creative thinking and other benefits linked to specific brain frequencies. The BioResonator™ set uses tuning forks to create specific frequencies called difference tones.


  • I wonder how many people you could kill if you went at this with a jack-hammer…

  • Save us.

    The pictured device is very familiar. It was once used in physics labs and music schoolrooms to demonstrate difference tones, beating, sympathetic vibration, etc. That was before music was cut for lack of funding, and physics was replaced with crystal worship.

    A visit to the web site reveals more interesting things. Did you know:

    8hz is the frequency of the “pulsation of the Earth” and sounding the 9th octave of 8hz (which just happens to be 4096hz (which falls between b7 and c8, the top two notes on a piano) “opens the doorways to the angelic kingdoms”. And here I didn’t even know Angels had kings!

    And there’s the “ohm” (or “Om” for you old meditation fans) pitch, which appears to be around C#. Of course, the tuning fork set you posted about is based on the physics C (256Hz), which is the fifth octave over 8hz, the “pulsation of the Earth”. Somehow, the ohm pitch ‘connects us to the earth’, even though it is at an interval of 1.06328125 (1361/1280 if you prefer) to a harmonic of 8hz!

    The Phi interval is represented by .618 (an inaccurate approximation, since it is a non-repeating decimal derived from a series approach to the different ratios between numbers in the fibbonacci series), and the sounding of two notes from metal tuning forks at the phi interval enables “some people” to hear the angels singing (but apparently doesn’t “open the doors of the angelic kingdoms”), but if all they have are tuning forks at a ratio of .6154, by golly, they’ll do just fine. Oh, and although the forks are claimed to be the notes D and A, the A fork is a lot closer to Bb. Oh…and this is from the ratio of 8 to 13, an interval that “does not seem to be found anywhere in Western Music” (despite centuries of just intonation in which chords would be tuned to integer intervals, and 8 to 13 forms the very oft used interval of a minor sixth!) Apparently, the disciplines of music history are as dear to these folk as music theory and physics. I’ll try not to mention that the base note of this interval falls at a ratio of 1.125 (9/8, the minor just whole tone) to the nearest harmonic of the Earth pulsation frequency mentioned above, and no reasonable ratio to the Ohm pitch at all. Clearly, there are as many wellness frequencies as there are divisions of the circle, and “creativity” is far more important than anything else.

    Ah yes, and the crowning touch: the crystal resonator only works to enable “some people” to hear angels sing if they hold a quartz crystal (of any size) in the other hand and tap them together.

    In short, these forks, at outrageously inflated prices, are being sold to the crystal-worshipping set as fashion accessories. Which is good, because honestly, with all the electronic tuners available, the tuningfork manufacturers have to have been feeling an economic crunch only something this bogus could alleviate. And the if the crystal worshippers were left their money, they’d probably get into politics and change PC so we’d all have to wear dirty (expensive) rocks and burn hyssop and stuff.

    If you’re interested in forks, by the way, and spending WAAY too much on them isn’t part of your religion, try these substitutes:
    Instead of the 8-fork set to tune your body to the Pythagorean mumblemumble at priced at a neat $160, try these for a mere $25.75

    Both Nada ( and Science Stuff ( have individual tuning forks at the same pitches being offered by this wellness rip-off, but for $2 to $8 buck range instead of $25 in singles.

    Oddly, the weighted, adjustable forks seem to be totally the realm of faith healers and crystal worshipers these days, and you’re going to shell out around 45 bucks apiece. And I couldn’t find a single one available from anyone other than a bio or illuminati or wellness named sight.

  • It’s a self-fulfilling product, really. If you’re willing to pay $259.95 for that then you really do need your brain waves re-aligned.

  • Onlyocelot – *impressed*, great feedback. Arf! :-)
