I’ve been blessed with avid readers who like to read this digital diary of mine while I go on my quest of soundproofing or minimizing the unnecessary noises around us. I do it all in search of a quiet life.

Besides fixing noisy lifters, I came up with another approach. Let’s discuss the best oil for noisy lifters. This is the piece that completes the two-piece lifter puzzle.
Basically, I chopped and changed my engine oils and additives to find out if I could get an extra perk or two out of my car’s engine or not. As it turns out, switching the product helped!
All I did was choosing these things with great care and implementing them as per instructions. It changed my car’s engine for the better. So, I decided to let you guys know about it.
In this article, I’ll be discussing the process of choosing engine oil additives and all about the products that I played around with. So, here we go!Continue reading
There are a lot of loud-engine lovers out there. One of the biggest questions for them is: “What’s the best way of soundproofing the vehicle?”
Now, you may heard of sound deadeners for cars, but you are still not sure which one should you get for yourself. In this review, I will be talking about the differences between two of the most popular automotive sound deadeners out there.
It only depends on your preferences, budget, and the noise level which one should you take. Both Noico and Dynamat are on the list when it comes to sound deadening. However, I will try to point out some differences that might affect your decision.
I will be talking about the size, thickness, price, installation process, and much more while comparing both of these deadeners.
Now, let’s start!Continue reading
“Why would I need a silent aquarium filter?”
There! I put the question up for discussion before you ask me this question.
It’s a fair point considering it’s a fish tank we’re talking about. But imagine this tank being in a place where you work or talk with guests. Constant noise at these places can disrupt the conversation or your concentration.
Now imagine the aquarium being in your bedroom. Can you put up with the constant noise of running motors and filters even when you sleep at night?
That’s why I’ve searched for 5 of the quietest aquarium filters. I came across different types of these machines with different functions. After nailing my quest, I’ve compiled all of my experiences into this single article.Continue reading
“The quest for a silent home begins from its garage.”
Mock me all you want for this made-up quote but it’s true. A noisy garage can make or break the peace and quiet of our houses. I’ve seen people complain about a loud garage door in the middle of the night. It’s bad for the picky neighbors as well.
The fault is with the old-fashioned garage openers that don’t have the means to suppress sound. It’s high time to look for newer options that kill the noise and work just as efficiently as their predecessors.
In this article, I’ll be directing you towards quiet garage door opener models. You’ll also find a nifty guide describing all the factors you need to know to replicate my research.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
Do you leave your dishes untidy and as-it-is once you’re done eating?
The question is silly. I know. The answer is a resounding, “No!”
Let me ask you again, how do you clean the dishes? Dishwashers, right?
But there’s a tiny bit of a problem. They make a ton of noise. The sound can come from a powerful motor, overloading of the product, overexertion, and poor maintenance.
When you’re in pursuit of a soundproof house, these are issues you need to address. Go for products that are silent when working and keep them in top shape.
The means of getting a quiet dishwasher is not money. Well, you have to buy them, yes. But buying depends on key tactics.
It’s “Better Selection.” And, proper knowledge about these devices. That’s what I’m here for.
I’ll be dedicating this guide to educating my readers about some of the best quiet dishwashers, teaching them how to buy one, and offer them a few tips of my own.
Sounds fair? Let’s get to it then.Continue reading

When someone sees a flying object these days, nine out of ten times it’s a drone.
These things might look like toys but they do some serious business. Drones do surveillance work, take pictures, record videos, and carry objects. I must tell you, these things are the best at what they do.
If there’s one aspect that makers found hard to manage, it’s the sound. If one of these devices does a near fly-by, people would know.
Thankfully, technology is at a point where manufacturers can produce drones with thick bodies. These things mask the materials and their vibrations while running.
As a result, drones of this age are silent unlike before.
But a different kind of problem lingers on. Users are still finding it tough to find the quietest drones on the market thanks to so many brands and models around. There are not enough resources describing the benefits of these tools and accurate noise test results.
All of it changes today with this article of mine. Here I discuss the reasons for having a quiet drone around. I put out a buying guide discussing the blueprints of finding the perfect machine. I’ve thrown in in-depth reviews of some of the best silent drones in business too.Continue reading
