Office noise can be soothing and silence liberating.
Now, thanks to a New York startup’s new app, users can search for venues according to internal noise levels. Meaning our ears can be protected from undue strain or harm.
Places are graded in four categories with anything under 70 decibels designated ‘quiet’ and anything over 81 as ‘very loud’.
Data on unlisted locations can be created, uploaded and then shared using the app.
The app lets users address perceived noise issues with businesses directly or supply information anonymously.
Based on 800 ratings, a list has been published of Las Vegas restaurants where it is possible to dine in peace.
Also good to hear: tinnitus can now be measured.
