Reducing the echo in the office.
When it comes to distracting factors and one’s inability to focus on the task at hand, there’s nothing that’s more devastating than working in a noisy environment. The most incredible thing about this is the fact that some people, instead of trying to solve this problem, decide to just roll with the punches and accept that – it’s just the way things are. However, there’s so much you can do in order to make your office into a quieter, more productive environment. With that in mind and without further ado, here are several reasons why working in a noisy environment is bad for your productivity, as well as several solutions for these problems.

Orfield Laboratories in South Minneapolis is the home of a space that was once dubbed “the quietest place on earth” by Guinness World Records. (As of 2015, that title now belongs to a quiet room developed by Microsoft in Washington state). The lab is called an anechoic chamber, meaning there is no echo as the room absorbs 99.99 percent of sound. It is used by various manufacturers to test product volume and sound quality—and it can also drive a person mad.
Manufacturers use the lab for product testing and development. Companies like Harley Davidson use the lab to create quieter bikes that still sound like a Harley, for instance. Other products like LED displays are tested to make sure their volume is not too loud. NASA, in fact, uses a similar lab to test its astronauts, given that space is like one giant anechoic chamber, explains Steven Orfield, president of Orfield Labs.
Orfield explains that the only way to stay in the room for an extended period of time is to sit down. A person’s orientation is largely secured by the sounds made when walking or standing, and as those sound cues are taken away, perception becomes skewed, and balance and movement become almost impossible feats. ...

City Lights was the most famous silent movie ever!!
Think silent films reached a high point with The Artist? The pre-sound era produced some of the most beautiful, arresting films ever made.
City Lights was arguably the biggest risk of Charlie Chaplin's career: The Jazz Singer, released at the end of 1927, had seen sound take cinema by storm, but Chaplin resisted the change-up, preferring to continue in the silent tradition. In retrospect, this isn't so much the precious behaviour of a purist but the smart reaction of an experienced comedian; Chaplin's films rarely used intertitles anyway, and though it is technically "silent", City Lights is very mindful of it own self-composed score and keenly judged sound effects. ...
