The Quietest Place On Earth

How long would a hearing person be able to sit in "the world's quietest place" Did you know there was even such a place on earth? There is! While it may be therapeutic for some, such as this sailor, for others it would be a bit unnerving.

While it wouldn't make any difference to a profoundly deaf person, I wonder if it would make any difference to those who are deaf and have tinnitus.Would it fade, or increase? Would it even matter?


Would you want to try out this room?


  1. I'd be willing to try it out if something was like that in my area. My only worry would be if I felt claustrophobic in anyway depending on size of room.

    1. Hi, Liz,

      I didn't think about the claustrophobic perspective. This wouldn't be a good place for anyone with that issue.
