Acoustic surfaces = customer satisfaction: "I have heard all the stories about how you don’t want to include acoustic material in the restaurant because you want the restaurant to be noisy, because noise adds energy.

The SoundPrint app has a built-in decibel reader, which crowdsources noise-level ratings at restaurants and bars and serves up “quiet lists” based on those readings...acoustic surfaces = customer satisfaction
