Sound Quiz: 10 Questions That’ll Make You Question Everything

Sound Quiz. Sounds boring, doesn’t it? Well, the properties of sound are strange and complicated — and a lot more interesting than what they teach you in school. We’ve assembled a sounds quiz exploring the weirdest, eeriest, and most unfamiliar properties of sound. 

Warning: Hard science questions ahead!

If you are already thinking: ‘Huh, how can a sound be eerie?’ then, like us, learning about sound was as dull as dishwater in school.
In reality, sound can impact our lives in ways that seem unbelievable at first. It can drive people crazy, it can come from the unlikeliest sources. (One example is space. Sound cannot travel in a vacuum, true, but sound doesn’t just stop existing outside of Earth.) During the Second World War, sound was sometimes used as a weapon – did you know that?

So how much do you know? There’s only one way to find it out.


A sound quiz that celebrates what we know. How well did you do?

In our industry, we always have questions about sound. This is because a huge part of our livelihood involves the understanding of it. Like the old philosophical phrase ‘know thy enemy’, we are always faced with new challenges. This involves a lot of planning and preparation at every new site to succeed. The properties of sound mean it can penetrate a room and lead to noise pollution in almost imaginative ways. We are sound geeks. We know a lot of fun, interesting trivia –more interesting than most people would think – that we picked up on the way. This quiz is a celebration of some of the weirdest things we know about sound. We hope it will make you question everything.

If you have any questions about sound, especially if they’re about soundproofing, then let us know.
