Unwanted, unpleasant, usually not welcome in our audio tracks and definitely not welcome in our lives - we are talking about noise. What are the most common types of noise in everyday life? Which one is too loud for our ears and causes pain? We have collected the most common indoor and outdoor noise sources and created an infographic presenting them relatively to their average sound pressure.
