Anechoic Chamber

Technology / Home Audio / Anechoic Chamber: A special room that is constructed without acoustically reflective surfaces, such that it is without echoes, or an-echo-ic. This experimental setup enables engineers to more precisely measure the acoustical properties of many types of equipment. A real life anechoic situation is experienced by skydivers. However, they may be a bit distracted from the experience by the approaching ground.
