Noise free environment

Sound noise may disturb sleep[1]. It creates concentration issues, it leads to fatigue, uncertainty and lack of self-confidence, irritation, misunderstandings, decreased working capacity, problems in human relations, and a number of stress reactions[2][3]. It has shown to impair reading comprehension and long-term memory and may be associated with raised blood pressure[1]. It interferes in complex task performance, modifies social behavior and causes annoyance[1]. Environmental noise has been connected to hypertension[1].
