Whether you are already a dog owner or you are considering getting one, you have probably thought of the problem of the dog’s barking at some point. Is it something that would bother you as an owner, or are you thinking about your neighborhood?
If you are thinking about getting a dog, think about the breeds that are less likely to bark since some are more vocal than the others, and you are half way from not having a problem at all. On the other hand, if you already have a dog and are pressured by the neighbors to keep it quiet there are some options available.Continue reading
Wherever we look around, we cannot help thinking about the huge problem of environmental pollution. Even though some people do their best to keep things clean and be eco-conscious still there are those who simply don’t care a whit!
But, if we use our ears instead of eyes, could we still talk about pollution?

My article here will try to give a better insight into this problem by defining it, listing the types, causes, and effect, along with some practical tips.Continue reading
Have you ever wondered why your neighbors make so much noise? That is what I do during the late hours of no sleep time that have been influenced by my noisy neighboring couple.
There are so many possible reasons why they are so loud, like they do not care about others, or they are doing it in spite of me. Then it hit me, it isn’t personal, it is because of their hearing deficiency.
They are both at a certain age, so their communication has been based on making additional noise during speaking, working, playing music etc.
Through the sense of hearing, we refer toward external environment, learning speech, and communicating. The hearing deficiency represents an issue that effects on both personal and interpersonal level.Continue reading

Have you ever been enjoying the time with your family and suddenly felt the urge to get away and enjoy silence for a moment or two? I know I did. Especially, when the little cousins are around and cause too much noise with their toys and yelling.
And, if they can cause a headache in just half an hour, imagine what an industrial machine can do to your ears and health.
Human hearing is sensitive and, if it’s not treated well, it can cause a lot of pain and problems.
When I was a student working on a part-time job where there were a lot of machines, compressors, etc. the noise was inevitable and every time I went home, I was feeling stressed and nervous, but when I looked back on my day, I had no obvious reasons to be like that.
So, I did a little research, and I somehow found out that exposure to the noise can be very harmful to hearing and health in general.
Where there are a lot of people – there is a lot of noise. Unfortunately, people often don’t know or are not aware of how much noise they cause with just a normal conversation. But we can’t make them quiet, am I right? So, let’s focus on what we can do, and that is protecting ourselves.Continue reading
The world is so full of sounds, both wanted and unwanted. But somehow the more we want to enjoy those wanted ones, the more those unwanted noises interfere.
What do we do?
As a result, we tend to be more creative in thinking about how to deal with noise. There are many ways to categorize that “battle” against noise. For example, active and passive ways. Speaking of active noise cancellation, let’s give a better look at what it is.Continue reading
