If you focus hard on the two tones, you realise they never change. It's when you let your mind run free, that they appear to get higher. I think it has something to do with whatever is producing the notes. You probably wouldn't get the same effect with a piano, although I haven't tried that theory.

It is called a shepard tone. Christopher Nolan often uses them in his soundtracks. This video does a good job of explaining it.

That's some fine auditory trickery there. Very clever.
