Enhance consumers experience with quieter technology

Long term excessive day to day noise can result in an increase to our stress levels, affect our sleep patterns and daily routines.  Sound effects our brain waves, heart rate, breathing, hormone secretion and all our physical rhythms. Technology dependency depletes us and has to be balanced out, this where the search for quietness begins. We’re often unaware of the layers of sound from technology surrounding us all day because noise pollution is invisible but profoundly impacts us, it can be exhausting and takes a toll on our bodies. Silence replenishes, it lowers blood pressure, calms stress and steadies the heart rate. Choosing quiet technology is being kind to ourselves.

Home is ideally our safe and calm haven, however products that we chose to put in our homes can also have an adverse effect in being unpleasantly loud to live with or meaning that we can’t hear ourselves speak such as when the kettle is boiling or having a morning shower. So it’s great to know that Quiet Mark are making that choice much easier for consumers to easily understand which products do work quietly.
