The World’s Quietest Room is so Quiet That You Can Hear Your Own Organs Working
The world’s quietest room, located at Orfield Laboratories in Minnesota, is an anechoic chamber designed to eliminate external sound as much as possible. It absorbs 99.99% of sound, creating an environment where ambient noise is nearly non-existent. In this room, you can hear the quietest of sounds, such as your own heartbeat and the sounds of your organs working. It’s so silent that staying in the room for an extended period can lead to hallucinations and an overwhelming sense of quietness. This room provides valuable insights for research in fields like audiology and psychology.
