For Relaxation, Meditation, and REST.
My personal suggestion is that people start with REST tools they are familiar with and advance to more methods as they become interested.
For example, 3D SLEEP MASKS are excellent tools for reducing unpleasant or undesirable light. They are lightweight, comfortable, and may block 100% of light!
They are called 3D because they are contoured so that they do not touch your eyelids or eyelashes. This allows you to freely open and close your eyes. They are EXCELLENT for increasing quality of sleep and PERFECT for Relaxation and Meditation.
The best part is you can bring them with you wherever you go. So if you wanted REST at work, in a bathroom stall, in your car, at home, in your backyard, or wherever, you can put them on and find immediate relief.
Another tool I suggest for beginners is comfortable HEADPHONES. The concept is the same except for sounds.
If you are not at home or don't feel comfortable because of loss of surrounding awareness, I suggest BONE CONDUCTION HEADPHONES. They allow you to keep your ears open to your environment while you listen to your music or calming sounds.

Effect of meditation Dissociation Dissociation is a break in how your mind handles information. You may feel disconnected from your thoughts, feelings, memories, and surroundings. It can affect your sense of identity and your perception of time.
Noise Canceling Headphones
This is what most of us tend to think of when we hear the words “noise-canceling headphones.” It's what helps the wearer drown out ambient noise and focus on talking to someone or listening to music. You see people wearing these types of headsets on long flights to tune out screaming babies and airplane engine noise.

A sensory deprivation tank also called an isolation tank or flotation tank is a dark soundproof tank used for restricted environmental stimulation therapy (REST).
Bone Conduction Headphones
The abridged version of bone conduction headphones is that they rest directly on the listener's cheekbones. Unlike traditional headphones and earbuds, the eardrum doesn't vibrate to pass the information along to the cochlea. Instead, the vibrations from the bone conduction bee-lines for the cochlea.
These small devices fit snugly inside the ear canal to block out exterior sounds.
Psychoacoustics is the branch of psychophysics involving the scientific study of sound perception and audiology—how humans perceive various sounds. More specifically, it is the branch of science studying the psychological responses associated with sound (including noise, speech, and music).

When you hear two tones, one in each ear, that are slightly different in frequency, your brain processes a beat at the difference of the frequencies. This is called a binaural beat.
Isochronic tones are regular beats of a single tone that are used alongside monaural beats and binaural beats in the process called brainwave entrainment. At its simplest level, an isochronic tone is a tone that is being turned on and off rapidly. They create sharp, distinctive pulses of sound.
Monaural beat stimulation is achieved by applying the same amplitude-modulated signal to both ears simultaneously.
