Decibel Scale

Decibel Scale When looking at the most versatile and amazingly sound devices, nothing can compare to the human ear. With its ingenious internal mechanisms and physiology, the human ear can adjust its sensitivity to increasing sound levels and handle a vast array of sound power levels. In short, this astounding piece of natural machinery can […]
