Silence is Golden
Did you know?

If you think silence is Golden then pack your bags. The Quietest room in the world is in Redmond Washington. Located in Microsoft’s headquarters, it’s called an ‘anechoic’ chamber. It creates no echo at all.

It’s made of six layers of concrete and steel and it is somewhat disconnected from the surrounding building, because it sits atop an array of vibration damping springs. Inside, fiberglass wedges are mounted on the floor, ceiling and walls to break up sound waves before they have a chance to bounce back into the room. The floor itself is simply a grid of sound-absorbing suspended cables.

For that much needed silent time, this is the place to be. There may be a road trip in your future.
