I’m the type of person that loves to listen to music while driving. For me, nothing beats being on a road and listening to my favorite band.
The only problem is there is a lot of noise that is interfering with my music such as tire hum, wind, engine whine, vibrations etc. This road noise is irritating and has an impact on how your car audio system sounds like.
Your car is made of metal and because of that acoustics in your car can be pretty bad.
Solution to this problem can be using materials that work like sound deadeners. There are many different brands on the market. One of the best is definitely Dynamat.
Dynamat helped me to keeping the unwanted sounds out of the car.Continue reading

It takes either a writer or a mother to appreciate the peace and quiet of a house.
Fortunately, I’m both. I can understand moms and dads doing some cleaning around the house while their kids are asleep. We want the work to be done quickly and without disturbing our kids while their asleep.
Also, we try our best to schedule cleaning hours at a time when it’s least disturbing to the elderly in our house or our neighbors.
One lousy vacuum cleaner with nagging sounds can spoil our plans of a quiet evening for our kids and the neighbors. Sure, we do everything in our powers to hush the sound. Sometimes, that costs us a lot of money.
But what if I told you an easy way around the problem?
Choose best quiet vacuum cleaners to begin with. If you’re lacking the motivation to do some research, I’ve got just the list for you. I’ve also explained my reasons for choosing the brands and models on the list. Let’s get to it.Continue reading
Having an ice-cold drink when the temperatures are unbearable is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and everyone should consider having an ice maker machine in their homes.
Other places you are likely to find an ice maker machine are restaurants, hospitals, office, and hotels, where lots of people congregate at once. In such places, the demand for ice cubes is definitely high, and the refrigerator may not be able to handle this type of demand. For the extra hot summer days, this machine is a godsend.
Now, if you have ever heard an ice machine in operation, you can attest to the fact that it is loud – extremely loud. In most cases the noise level is deafening and even though it is for a short period of time, nobody wants to hear that much noise at all.
Imagine a family with a toddler or infant baby staying awake due to a noisy ice machine? It is no wonder that one of the most common complaints by customers in hotels and restaurants is the noise made by this machine.
For hotels and restaurants, investing in a quiet ice maker would save them from the bad reviews and help in retaining their customers.
Now, what do you need to know before buying an ice maker machine? Let me take you through a few factors that you will need to consider for this.Continue reading
Having a quality pool pump is something that many people do not put much thought into. The pump is usually responsible for propelling the water through the pool filter.
Besides the functionality, the amount of noise that the pool pump produces while being used is an important factor to consider.
Of course, there are ways that you can make your pool pump quieter. However, if you are looking to purchase a new pump, you should just consider buying a quieter model.
A pool pump is not an ordinary day-to-day device. Finding the right one may, therefore, be quite a challenge.
Well, if you have no idea where to get started, have a look at the guide below. We will even kick in our top 5 picks for the quietest pool pump to give you a head start.Continue reading
Almost all hamster owners and behavioral researchers agree on this one thing: Hamsters absolutely love their wheels. They can clock up a couple of miles in just one night which is almost like running several marathons (for them).
The one problem with this is the amount of noise the hamster wheels make, especially since hamsters are particularly fond of exercising at night while we sleep.
Buying a wheel for your little hamster pet is not as easy as it may seem. There are many decisions that must be made such as the design, the material used in its making, the size, etc. You must also be in a position to know the risks, if any, that a specific wheel has, and how to spot a problem early before things go very wrong.
Being a hamster owner myself, I can tell you that it’s not about the design, but more on the material used in its making. Choosing the right wheel will definitely make the wheel safer for your precious hamster.Continue reading

“Live and let live.” This is a code that I live by.
My code extends to non-humans as well. Be it my pet dogs or fishes in the nice big aquarium I have in my living room, I strive to make life a bit better for them each day.
That’s why I’m a vocal advocate of installing air pumps in aquariums.
For those of you who don’t know, air pumps are devices that create a water current in fish tanks and oxygenate the water by infusing air particles in the process.
This helps fishes by mitigating their oxygen demands. Some air pumps even run additional devices like under-gravel filters and decorative objects.
But, there’s a problem. As these machines run on motors, these can be noisy at times. Add to that the casing which vibrates constantly creating an engine-like sound.
To solve this problem and to keep our fish buddies in a healthy environment, let’s discuss some of the quietest aquarium air pumps with sound masking technology.
In this article, I’ll be reviewing the top 5 contenders and telling you why I chose them in the first place. Take the maintenance tips at the end as a bonus. Let’s dive in!Continue reading
If you are a light sleeper like me, then you probably understand how annoying even the smallest sound can be when you are trying to get some sleep.
This only gets worse if you have noisy neighbors who do not understand how much sleep is important.
I first came across a white noise machine when I was shopping for my baby’s nursery. The walls of the house that I was living in at the time were so thin and even the smallest sounds got to the nursery and woke him up.
When I got a white noise machine, I had a solution for a couple of weeks before the thing broke down and stopped working altogether. I was frustrated because I had spent quite a considerable amount of money on the machine.
I was not too quick to replace the white noise machine. However, after a few frustrated weeks of having to wake up in the middle of the night to the baby’s wailing, it was clear that I needed a solution.
When a friend suggested a white noise fan, I was a bit skeptical. I was not sure how the fans would work in the same way as the machine. I gave it a try though, seeing as it was a bit cheaper than the white noise machines.
I absolutely loved it! I ended up using white noise fans for quite some time and still do, even to date. If you are not sure whether or not a white noise fan will work for you, this article should help you make an informed decision.
Here’s what I have learned about white noise fans over the years.Continue reading
