The lab is built to NC10 standards, meaning there is a background noise level of only 10dB (thousands of times quieter than a typical classroom) and low reverberation time. This is accomplished via unique architectural designs, including room-within-room construction, floating floor, concrete outer ceiling, custom noiseless HVAC system, and acoustic panels. With this blank slate, we can use our Meyer Sound Active Acoustic System to digitally recreate any type of environment, such as a from a cathedral, to concert hall, to classroom to anechoic chamber. You can also use the system to immerse participants in sound environments such as restaurant ambient noise to simulate real environments.
Applications: Studying hearing aids in realistic environments, studying music in different acoustic environments, showcasing uniquely sounding performances, and more.
