Then, how can we stop sound waves?
The three easiest ways to stop sound are to turn off the source, increase your distance from it (walk out of that noisy bar), or stop the sound waves from entering your ears (cover your ears or wear earplugs at the rock concert).
Likewise, is Noise Cancelling bad for your ears? Unlike cell phones, noise-cancelling headphones do not emit low level radiation and do not pose any of the potential hazards that could stem from frequent use of a cell phone held next to the ear. Acute loud noises can damage hearing, interfere with sleep, raise blood pressure and stress levels and cause headaches.
One may also ask, can sound waves be destroyed?
The Sound of Destruction. “Under certain conditions, sound waves cause the formation of small bubbles that rapidly implode and release an intense shock wave that produces enormous amounts of heat energy and a variety of highly active radicals, which can completely destroy adjacent material.”
What materials can block sound?
Besides these four common and economical noise control materials; barrier, RC channel/sound clips, foam mats, green glue, insulation, vibration pads, panels, soundproofing doors and windows etc., are also used to block the unwanted noise and sound.
