Nowadays millions of us live in big cities and love it. However, no matter how amazing it is, or how many possibilities it offers for work, fun, making connections, etc, it also comes often at a high price.
One of the things we get when living surrounded by many people is the noise.
Many people are used to it and don’t pay any attention to it, while they go about their daily activities, however, the rest who aren’t “immune” to it may struggle quite a bit.
Sometimes taming a bass in a room looks like taming the wildest and the most disobedient animal!
At least my teenager told me so. You already know he’s into music, so I’ve learned a lot from him. When he told me that picturesque thing about taming bass, I made a small research to see what he meant by that.
I came across lots of information on how people deal with low-frequency problems because they’re indeed an issue for all musicians.
I also came across many positive opinions on Auralex products which are very useful and successful in dealing with this problem.
So, let us see what is Auralex, which products does it have to offer us and more.
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.
Whether your profession demands of you to wear hearing protectors or you are simply a person who enjoys hunting, I believe this article will help you decide whether you want to get passive hearing protectors or electronic ones.
We will explain what are the differences between these two types of hearing protectors and why are in some cases electronic protectors better, even though they are much more expensive. But as I like to say: “Quality over quantity!”
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.
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.
If you are a musician or a sound recorder, then one of the major challenges that you must be facing is getting space to rent out your own recording studio. Even with space the monthly rent, as well as other expenses, can take a huge toll on your finances.
It is because of such setbacks, that people find it much easier to build a soundproof booth in your home. Not only will this help you cut on costs, it will also allow you to work from the comfort of your home.
Besides people who work with music and sound recording, you may also need a quiet place to just work from home. While some people have a home office for such needs, not everyone has space. In this case, a soundproof booth would be a great place to get all the work done even when everyone else is home.
You are probably wondering how exactly to go about building a soundproof booth in your home. Well, if that is the case, then this article is meant for you. So read on to find out why.
You are probably wondering what is the cheapest method for soundproofing your walls and related to that, do egg cartons for soundproofing even work?
Well, there are a lot of reasons to believe that egg crates can do the job. Simply speaking, they are round and on the first sight, we might think that it can actually absorb some noise as it doesn’t bounce back from the solid, flat surface.
This is a myth and people are still testing it and believing in it. Egg crates can’t be used for soundproofing. But, they might be used for some other purpose, or to reduce some other type of the noise.
In this article, I will be explaining why egg crates can’t be used in soundproofing and offer you some other alternatives when it comes to soundproofing
It’s enough of a challenge to figure out where you lie in the spectrum of people who need acoustic treatments or soundproofing and similar dilemmas. As discussed before, it can be a bit of a fine line to walk.
I know, for us, it wasn’t exactly an easy feat, when we set it up in our home’s theater room. It’s always a struggle to decide what you need and how to achieve it best. It doesn’t help when you consider that a wrong investment can cost a lot if you make mistakes.
Obviously, it’s not that hard or costly to purchase some acoustic panels, but it can add up if you end up going in without a solid plan. Costs do add up if you need to buy multiples of even the best deal.
That’s why the goal here today is to make sure you:
-End up able to form a clear and concise plan of action
-Know what to aim for in terms of material and coverage
-Don’t end up wasting money
One word of warning: there is no ideal solution that can magically solve all your acoustic problems. In all honesty, the science of acoustics often relies on a person’s feel of it all and their opinion on how things ought to be, more than it relies on something precisely and coldly based on math alone.
