Restaurant Noise Survey

                                     The goals of the Restaurant Noise Project are:                                         (1) to increase community awareness about the danger of loud music in restaurants and  (2) to convince restaurant owners to take steps to lower the volume in order to safeguard the hearing health of their customers and employees

We encourage everyone who dines out at restaurants to help us spread the word about hearing loss due to loud noise. Pay attention to  the sound levels at the restaurants you frequent. If the sound is too loud to comfortably converse with your fellow diners, ask the manager to lower the music volume to keep the sound level at a safe volume. Then, come to our website and let us know about your experience!  Did the sound level enhance or detract from your dining experience? Was the restaurant accommodating about adjusting the music volume if asked?  We will share the results online so you will know where to #DineComfortably!
