How to measure reverb | The Lab
Who doesn't love a good reverb? A key ingredient in every self-respecting power ballad. But reverb isn't always welcome. When you're trying to listen to someone speaking, for instance, especially if there is background noise present. Reverb is measured using reverberation time, which is the time it takes for the sound pressure level to fall by 60 dB after the sound has been turned off. Listen to the examples in the video!

What is Sound Absorption? | The Lab
Sound energy is made up of waves caused by vibrating air particles. When the sound waves hit our eardrum, we hear. If the sound instead hits a sound-absorbing material, sound energy is converted into heat. This process is called sound absorption. Simply put, sound absorption is what happens when sound stops being sound.
